WWtKW: Janette Edition

What?!  It's Wednesday already?!  OMGosh where does the time go?  Still have lots left to do to prepare for my trip to Cali with the family.  Pretty soon I'll be counting down the hours until we leave NM to the clean Cali sun (rather ironic, really).  In the meantime, it's We Want to Know Wednesday!!


This week, we have questions from the lovely Janette from The Johanson Journey.  I think these are the best questions yet!  Avoid the laundry and answer some questions with me!

1.  Everyone seems to have a quirky family situation-- what is something unique about your family dynamic?
Hmmm...let's see.  Don't want to air too much dirty laundry.  My family lives in Cali and it's pretty normal.  Save for my grandma and aunt who live together in a very co-dependent relationship.  And then there's my hubs' family here in NM.  I think I'll leave that at that.

2.  What is the most stressful aspect to blogging (aside from the network going down)?
Coming up with good things to talk about.  And prepping pictures.  I used to be able to sit down and prep a bunch of pics at a time, but now that I've been at it for a year, blogging isn't the first thing on my mind as soon as the boys go to bed at night.  So, I guess when it all boils down, the most stressful part is finding time.  Just plain finding time.  For all of it.  Blog.  Life.  Hubs.  Hobbies.  All of it.

3.  We all end up on a blog at some point in our day, but name your top 3 favorite websites you flock to daily (non blog)!
Facebook, of course.  Allrecipes and  Those are both super addictive.  Who else is looking forward to this season of Storm Chasers?!  I'm addicted to the website AND the show, thanks to my mom.

4.  What’s your sign?  Believe in it or not, does any part ring true to you?
Depending on which "chart" you use, I'm either a Leo or a Virgo...I'm right on the cusp (August 23).   I am absolutely, hands-down, a Virgo.  

5.  IceCream!! ICECREAM!! We all scream for icecream! Name your favorite flavor/brand! (Its hot here, can't help it).
THIS is a hard one!!  I'm torn between 3 things: Dewar's peppermint stick ice milk (not quite as rich as ice cream but tastes just as good), Dewar's tan and white (coffee ice cream with caramel sauce) or Ben & Jerry's Phish Food (choco ice cream with caramel and marshmallow swirls and choco fudge fish).  Now I'm hungry.  Great.

Thanks Janette!  These were great questions!!   For more great WWtKW participants, check out the linkie HERE.  

Happy Wednesday!!  Enjoy your day.  See you again tomorrow. :)

I'm definitely going to check out that Tornado Videos site - my husband would love it!

I really should go eat a proper breakfast before I end up with a carton of ice cream in my lap - all this yummy talk is setting off a serious craving.

Not crazy about store bought chocolate Ice cream... the flavor is not quite right. I will buy vanilla and Hersey's chocolate syrup and mix that for Chocolate Ice cream... I know. Weird.

Amber said...

Ben and Jerry's does have some pretty amazing ice cream flavors. There was a time in my life where I tried a new one each week - that was when I was in college and had nothing else to spend my diner dollars on and still had a decent metabolism!

Prepping pictures is a good one, sometimes I wish I took more time in my pictures that I post, but sometimes over doctoring them isn't a good thing.

Have a great day!

I wish I could have been a storm chaser... I LOVE IT!! storms are so exciting!! They say hurricane season is going to be pretty busy this year... yay (not for damage or death, but for exciting tv).... finding time to blog and live is hard. I use work hours to do most of my blogging and then find I have no time to work!! hah

Husband is August 24th so he ends up being a cusp baby too...but absolutely a virgo!

I'm completely hooked on B&J Bonaroo Buzz right and malt ice cream with whiskey caramel swirl and english toffee chunks. YUM

VandyJ said...

I'm a cusp baby too--the day before you. Virgo fits better, but if I like the Leo one I'll take it.

Impulsive Addict said...

TIME! I agree. It's so hard to incorporate as much blogging as I would like to do in a short amount of time.

I have allrecipes on my phone as an app! It's very helpful while grocery shopping! Ugh. Facebook. It's like crack.

Thanks for linking up with us! We heart you and your beautiful nails! =)

Brittney said...

it is hard to balance time these days! Ive never heard of those ice creams before.. these answers are making me sooo want some ice cream! haha

Brenna said...

Any sort of pepperminty ice cream is amazing and out too little of the year! lol
I have never seen storm chasers... seems like all these cool shows came out while we have been out of the country and without normal tv... so frustrating!

Stray Stitches said...

My biggest issue with blogging is time too. Sometimes I feel like I'm being pulled in too many directions but not nearly as many as you. You are most welcome for your addiction to TVN and Stormchasers. I can't wait for the new season either. Ice cream - definitely Dewars but a black and white made with coffee ice cream instead of vanilla - yummmmm! We just might have to make a trip over there while you are here :D

Mamarazzi said...
