Five Question Friday – August 26

by Carrie with Children with 10 comments

After taking a few week’s break from Five Question Friday – let’s jump right back in with the fun questions!

To those of you in the path of Hurricane Irene – please be safe!

Just a reminder, I’m linking up with others for Five Question Friday and I don’t make up the questions. Click on the button above to see a linky list of others also participating. Be sure and share your answers below too!

Did you make any fun purchases this week? I guess it depends on what your definition of “fun” might be.  Here’s what I consider fun…  last Saturday night, my friend and I went to Bistro Aix, our favorite restaurant for wine and dessert.  I had a homemade Nutter Butter cookie and a glass of wine.  Ha!  How’s that for fun…and delicious?!

If you could go to any musical concert – what would it be? This is a total no-brainer….Garth Brooks!  Remember back in December when I went to Nashville to see him in concert?!  So awesome!   Now, I’m hoping to get to Las Vegas to see his show at the Wynn.

What is your least favorite/most favorite house chore? Is this a trick question?  There is no such thing as “favorite house chore”.  I could write a novel on all the chores I consider my “least favorite”.

Would you prefer new appliances or new clothes? Those that know me in real life, know that I am the farthest thing from a fashionista.  I would much rather have new appliances.  The ones we have right now don’t match and are nearing the end of their lives.  (If you’re an appliance company reading this….let’s talk!  Hey, it never hurts to throw it out there, right?!)

Miracle Whip or Mayo? Neither for me, I don’t like mayonnaise. However, my husband is a “mayo only” guy so that’s the only kind we have in our house!

    Hi! I’m following you from Bee Friendly Friday 🙂 I’d love it if you would take a moment and visit me @ Salvage Savvy!!

    • Carrie with Children

      Hi Connie – Thanks for stopping by for Five Question Friday! I appreciate it!

  • Jessica

    I lol’ed when I read the question about which concert you’d see…that was obvious, I knew you’d say Garth! 🙂 Mine would be New Kids On The Block!

    As for fun purchases, I scored a vintage etch-a-sketch at an estate sale this past weekend for $2!!!

    • Carrie with Children

      Ha! You know me too well to know that I would choose Garth! Was there ever any doubt?! 🙂 NKOTB would be awesome!

      A vintage Etch-A-Sketch sounds really cool – especially for $2. Good find!

  • Miranda

    I have some favorite “chores” like laundry, and grocery shopping but my least favorite is vacuuming/washing floors – blech!

    • Carrie with Children

      Oh yes – I love grocery shopping! I didn’t list it because I don’t even think of it as a chore! Ha! Vacuuming is probably my least favorite.

      Thanks for playing along for Five Question Friday!

    Sorry no fun purchases this week.
    I’m with you no housework is fun
    I love music so any type of concert would be awesome. Ok I do draw the line at symphonies and opera. The last “fun” concert I went to was last summer called The Happy Together Tour with the Turtles, Buckinghams, Mark Lindsay of Paul Revere and the Raiders, Mickey Dolenz of the Monkees and the Grass Roots.

    I would have to say I would prefer new appliances -those pioneer woman worked too damn hard for us not to have appliances.
    I like both Mayo and Miracle Whip. I like Miracle Whip to put in deviled eggs, tater salad but I like mayo on my sandwiches.

    • Carrie with Children

      Yep – I draw the line at operas too! So glad to see you agree with me on the appliances question! I’d much rather have those than clothes!

      Thanks for playing along for this week’s Five Question Friday!

  • Bibi

    I would take fun night out with a friend over a purchase any day. Also glad to see that I am not the only one that doesn’t do mayo or Miracle Whip.

    Stopping by from 5QF. Have an awesome weekend!

    • Carrie with Children

      Yay for not being a Mayo fan! My husband thinks I’m crazy, but I just don’t like it!

      Thanks for playing along for 5QF – Have a great week!
