Five Question Friday

Link up with Mama over at My Little Life

1. What do you listen to while driving?
Turn it up loud, sit down, LET'S GO!  I love all kinds of music! Right now it's the local Top 40 station. Love the old school funk most! 
2. What is your least favorite thing about Fall?
Here in MN it means that WINTER and SNOW are around the corner. I was kind of hoping that shiny thing they call a snowblower was just for looks...damn.   
3. What does your dream house look like, inside and out?
I live in my dream house. Sounds funny, eh?  I bought my first fixer upper, forclosure home ALMOST a year ago. I have put in new windows, doors, painted from top to bottom, refinished hardwoods, new carpet upstairs, deck railing, tore out and had a contractor come in and make a whole new bathroom. Carribean blue walls, tan stone tiled shower and floors with bright white fixtures, and a sun on the ceiling.  See where I went with that?  Yep, the beach. Even in the middle of winter here.  Needless to say, it is my first home, and I did it as a single mom, and rocked it out!  I would be happy here the rest of my life. If Chief decides to retire back to MN, we have a comfy cozy little place. :)

4. Would you ever own a minivan?
Ahahahhaa, oh. ahem. No. Bless the hearts of the people who drive them. I won't even own a conversion van. No. That's my final answer.
5. Do you wash new clothes before wearing them?
Depends what it is, really. Underwear, socks, yes. I don't think so about anything else. New sheets - FOR SURE


  1. I think new sheets are the only thing I wash first! But then again, there is nothing better then sleeping on freshly washed sheets!!

  2. I loved that you are in your dream home and that you did it all. I truly would love a fixer upper of my own. My dream house I wrote was way more than I really would be satisfied with.
    I have the same Cinderella sign on my site. They say great minds think alike huh ?
    Its nice meeting you and if you get a minute come to my blog and enter my October contest I have going on right now. Good luck and have a great weekend. Kath' at
