Wednesday Hodgepodge--Superbowl and Snacks

1. Will you watch the Super Bowl? If so who will you root for? If you are outside the USA what is the 'big deal sporting event' in your own country? We will watch the Superbowl.  It the one football game we watch every year.  This year we will be rooting for the Steelers.  My brother-in-law went to school at Carnegie-Mellon in Pittsburgh and we sort of became Steelers fans while he was there.  I also like to watch the commercials--although last year the commercials were a bit of a let down.

2. Is ignorance bliss?  Sometimes.  What you don't know can't hurt you--especially when it comes to gossip.

3. Which of the seven dwarfs are you? (and just in case your Disney is a little bit rusty, here they are-Bashful, Doc, Dopey, Grumpy, Happy, Sleepy, and Sneezy)  I am most like Bashful in social situations where I don't know anyone.  I'm also Sleepy lots of the time--the little boys cause this one.

4. When you are riding in the car with another couple how do you organize the seating? (Men up front? Women up front? Couples sit together?) And thanks to Lori at Mountain Woman at Heart for the question! Everyone go say hi to Lori.  It sort of depends on the car, or truck we are taking.  Sometimes it makes more sense to be couple together, other times women together and men together--also depends on who drives as to who's up front.

5. What is beauty?  That quality that speaks to your soul--a sunset, a kitten, a sleeping child.  It can be anything that moves you.  At the end of a tough day, a glass of wine is a beautiful thing.

6. If someone asks you to bring an appetizer or a dessert to a party in their home, which would you choose? An appetizer.  I'm more of a savory kind of person--I make appetizers better than desserts.

7. What is your crowd pleasing go-to appetizer? I make a pretty mean hot wing.  I also like to make little pigs in blankets--little smokies and cresent dough,  pretty good.

8. Insert your own random thought here.  It's amazing how something so small as a virus (and a few thousand of it's buddies) can make you feel so horrible.  Turbo is much better today--he went to school.  He's still coughing but overall his energy is back and keeping him confined to the couch would have been impossible so off to school he goes.  Thanks for all the well wishes, positive thoughts and knowledge that I wasn't alone in dealing with a sick kid.  Sometimes that makes all the difference.


  1. I like your answer #7
    I'll be right over :)

  2. Like your answer to #5. Soo true! In the comment you left me you mentioned you had a recipe for the bacon appetizer, could you share that. It might be different than the one I found online. Thanks!
    until next time... nel

  3. I'm glad Turbo is feeling better!
    Would I be outcast if I admitted that we're rooting for the Packers?
    Please say no...

  4. Tell you what, you bring the appetizer, I'll bring the dessert. :-)

  5. I love hot wings. I'm getting a lot of Ideas for my party today : ). Glad your son is feeling better. Nothing worse than a sick child.

  6. Glad Turbo is feeling better. I liked your answers, these were fun questions! You know what... I never had your button... I just added it :)

  7. Love your answer to #5! So true, so true!
    The commercials last year were definitely not up to par...maybe that's why I didn't even think about them when I answered!

  8. I am Bashful too. And Sleepy and sometimes I am Grumpy. I will probably watch the Super Bowl off and on...I am more of an Oscars watcher. Yes, ignorance is bliss. We had an escaped felon(juvenile) running around our neighborhood last week. Helicopters patrolled for nearly 3 hours. I never told my oldest a thing. She was blissfully unaware. And yes, they caught the guy.

    Dessert. I love dessert. I make lots of yummy things. A chocolate chess pie, hot fudge sauce, and killer brownies.

    Random Thought: I need to shave my legs.

  9. i 100% agree with you on being ignorant to gossip. my friends know better than to gossip around me i squash it every time. i just hate it!


I love to get comments! They make my heart go pitter-pat! Go on comment--I'll do my best to go give your blog some love too!
