8 Questions x 2

Mrs. S @ Southerland Living tagged me to complete this fun questionnaire. I love these questions!

1) What kind of laundry detergent do you use?

Whatever is on sale. I really like the Tide with Febreeze or the Gain in the pink bottle.
2) What is your least favorite chore around the house?
unloading the dishwasher. I HATE it! I would rather wash dishes by hand and dry them then have to unload the dishwasher.
3) If you could go to any restaurant for dinner (money no option) Where would you go?
A restaurant that I would love to go back to is Ruth Chris. We went there last year to celebrate mom's retirement and it was so yummy. I got the stuffed chicken breast and it was delicious!

4) What is your favorite type of cheese?
I love any type of cheese. My favorite is Hickory Farms cheese balls. Mom and I always buy a few at Christmas and will eat one while wrapping Christmas gifts. Its one of my favorite traditions.
5) What store do you love to shop at (for clothes)?
I am a shopaholic but I'me very loyal to certain stores. Almost 100% of my clothes, shoes, and accessories come from Kohls, JCPenney, or Old Navy. I really like Old Navy for casual clothes but all of my work clothes come from the other 2. JCPenny's Worthington brand dress pants fit me better than anything else.

6) What kind of car do you drive?
A 2010 Chevrolet Equinox. I had a 2006 model before and loved it so when Hubs and I decided to get me a new car he wanted to upgrade to a new model and I'm so glad that I listened to him. It has ton's of room without being too big.
7) Favorite book of all time?
Oh my, this is a really hard question for me because I LOVE to read! I recently read Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers and loved it but I wouldn't say it was my favorite. I really like Jodi Picoult, Nicholas Sparks, Sophie Kinsella, and Emiliy Giffin.

8) Alcoholic bev of choice?
Beer. I'm a simple gal. Although I do love a good Margarita with extra salt.

I was also tagged by my wonderful new friend @ It's the World I Know. If you haven't checked out her blog then rush over there. She keeps me laughing and I love hearing her stories.

1. What was the last thing you ate?
a toasted whole wheat English muffin with honey

2. What is one of your best childhood memories?
getting to see my entire family every Tuesday night at my grand parents. My grandmother cooked dinner every week and we would all come over. There is at least 30 of us.

3. When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you were older?
a dental hygienist

4. Do you paint your toenails in the winter?
of course. any proper Southern gal knows that your toenails should always be painted.

5. Do you watch any reality television? If so, what show is your favorite?
Unfortunately I love reality tv. My favorites are The Bachelor/Bachelorettes and The Biggest Loser.

6. What were some of the "trends" when you were a kid?
I was an 80's child so Rainbow Bright, Care Bears, Flintstones, The Jetsons, Strawberry Shortcake, The Smurfs, Scooby Doo... I loved them all

7. What is your favorite time of the year? Why?
Fall, because I love the smells, tastes, cooler weather (well maybe not here in the south), clothes, and of course the football.

8. Do you have any hobbies?
is shopping a hobby? I love to read. Give me a good book and I am set.
I tag anyone that wants to play along. Sorry, I know its the easy way out.
