{TBB Asks // August}

The sweet ladies at The Blended Blog have created another round of this or that questions and I thought it would be fun to join in. I missed the last one, so I was excited to get to do this one. Here are my answers..

1.) Pool, lake or ocean?
A few years ago I would have said pool, but now I am all about the ocean. Something about our last trip to Panama City Beach changed me. I have been longing for the ocean since. I don't get in Texas lakes very much...I like to be able to see my feet. There is a lake in Oklahoma {Broken Bow} that is clear and I will get in!

2.) Camping, Cottage or hotel?
Camping all the way! And I don't care if it's in a tent or a camper. We are a camping family!

3.) Favorite ice cream flavor?
Hmmm, I am not much of an ice cream eater. I know, I know. But, it makes my stomach hurt so bad. When I do eat ice cream it's usually an orange sherbet or lime sherbet.

4.) PJ's, Nightgown, T-shirt/Shorts or birthday suit?
Definitely not my birthday suit! I have a 7 year old that usually finds his way to our bed 5 out of 7 nights a week. I normally sleep in an oversized t-shirt and shorts.

5.) Fave Summer Beverage?
Ice water with extra vanilla from Sonic. Or ice water with limes and lemons.

6.) Would you rather be hot or cold?
Cold, hands down. You can bundle up and put on layers, but you can only take off so much. Plus, hot in Texas is about 110 degrees with 90%+ humidity. And with the heat index it normally feels like 120 degrees. No thanks! Give me the cold.

7.) Sandals with heels or flats? 
Both! I like sandals with a heel because it adds some height to my short self. But, flats are so much more comfortable.

8.) Shorts or skirts?
Shorts. We are too much on the go to be worrying about keeping a skirt down.

9.) Sit in the sun or the shade?
The sun for a bit, and then the shade. I am fair skinned and burn easily!

10.) Water, tea or soda?
Only water for me. I gave up diet soda earlier this year and tea a few weeks ago when I started dieting.

11.) Fave summer fruit, vegetable?
Cantaloupe! But, I don't have a favorite summer time vegetable.

12.) Sunrise or sunset? 
Both! They are my favorite and I love to take pictures of them. Such a gift from the Lord!

13.) Bike ride or walk?
Walk. I think.

14.) Winery or brewery?
Both are cool. I like to tour breweries, but I do not like beer. I love wine and wineries.

15.) Garden or no garden?
We have a huge garden in the back of our property, but we don't use it. My father in law normally plants stuff in there. Maybe one day I will get into gardening.

16.) Big summer concert or music in the park?
Nathan and I used to be all about big summer concerts...Texas Country to be exact. But since we have Mason we don't really have any interest any more.

17.) Fave cookout food?
Hamburgers or Steaks!

18.) Dine indoors or patio?
Always a patio...if the weather permits!

19.) Fave summer destination?
It's hot here, so we like to escape to the mountains for cooler temps.

20.) Big theme park or local carnival?
Big theme park. The small local carnivals scare the fire out of me. They take down and put up those rides so fast and they look anything but safe. I do love carnival lights at night, though.

21.) Drinks blended or on the rocks?
Depends on the drink. Margarita? Blended. Moscow Mule? On the rocks

22.) Popsicle or freeze flavor of choice?
Popsicle. Walmart has a cherry/pineapple popsicle and it's amazing. And very low carb!

23.) Hot dog or hamburger?
Cheeseburger without the bun.

Did you join in? What would you pick?


  1. I hear on the no birthday suit. Did that before kids, but now it's just not happening. Kids come in or need something at night too often. Way to go on giving up pop and tea. I don't drink it often, but I don't think I could ever not have one every once in a while. Love reading this and learning a few new things.

  2. What is this ice water sonic business? Are there bubbles? This was such fun to read! Just another way to get to know a person!

  3. Your thoughts on the carnivals, YES! That can't be safe, at all. I giggled over the PJ suit. Our girls stay in their own beds but it steal freaks me out to go there, lololol

  4. I need to give up diet pop but every day it seems I just need an afternoon pick me up! I try to just keep it to a can a day! I drink water with lime in it too and love that tang! I agree on seeing your toes in lakes. I am a Minnesota lake girl and there can't be gross seaweed grabbing my legs either ;) YUCK! I love the oceans and sunrises and sunsets - the way God paints the sky is just so beautiful and right now we can see the sunset every evening out our back windows. It's my favorite! xoxo ERIN

  5. Sometimes I wish we were a camping family!

  6. This is such a fun linkup! I loved reading more about you. I think I need to move to Texas, though, because I love hot weather!

  7. I love how you have to escape the heat and go to the mountains..we live in such different worlds! Thanks for joining in, love learning more about you!

  8. I am laughing so hard right now... you said cold. You are a Texan! You don't get to be really cold. You should come visit and I'll show you Ohio cold :)

  9. My cheeseburger is sans the bun these days too! Loved that you joined us and loved reading your summertime favorites!!

  10. Yes to being hot! I would rather be cold any day! I love to be cozy and when I'm hot, I get easily irritated LOL. And I agree, small town fairs scare the crap out of me, I much prefer bigger theme parks, well really just Disney LOL


Thanks for the comments! Hope you are having an amazing day!!
