Oh how I love you Friday

1. Friday Follow, Blog Hop Friday and New Friend Friday...


This week Friday Follow is hosted by the Duck Fest Auction Winner, Shell from Things I Can’t Say, and Terri from That What She Said.

Blog Hop Friday is hosted by My New Life As Mom, Chubby Cheeks Thinks, Take A Mom's Word For It, Bree Bee's, This Adventure Our Life and Belly Charms!

New Friend Fridays is hosted by The Girl Creative and Trendy Treehouse.

2. Yesterday I had some peeps ask questions...here are the answers in case you missed them. I'm always happy to answer, so feel free to ask whenever!

Marc asked -
I have a question.. can I steal Pie to pick up women?? Is that wrong of me??? LOL
It probably is wrong, but absolutely. It seemed to be working last night! LOL.

-K asked -
What's your favorite ice cream?

I'm going old school classic with this one...Ben and Jerry's Cookie Dough. YUM.

Her Momma asked -
What was your wedding song and why?
It was James Taylor's My Romance. It was picked because the words were so sweet, perfect and simple. Plus it was short :D. Here it is for anyone not familiar...just listening again made me a little teary eyed.

Salt asked (well said really) -
Mmmmmm margaritas sound so good right now. I don't care that it's only 11am.
I concur whole-heartedly!

Bronzed asked -
What time are you coming home today? we miss you
As quickly as is humanly possible. I miss you too...especially after listening to our wedding song :)

Cris Goode asked -
What is your favorite thing to do when you have an hour to yourself?
Read...without question. I am a great lover of books and words in general. My deep, dark secret dream is to be a published author. So when I have time to myself (bahahaha...yeah right) the first thing I do is read.

lindsey asked -
hhhmmm...what kind of music do you prefer to listen to?
This is a tough question. What I listen to shifts with my mood, but I would say that for the most part it falls into the singer/songwriter, folk-y kind of genre. I really dig Alexi Murdoch, Amos Lee, and one of my all time favorites is Ray LaMontagne. Here's a really great song of his (video is just a static picture). Let It Be Me is also a completely amazing song of his...

I am asked -
What is the question you would most like to be asked? Why does that question stand out as important/interesting to you?
First let me say that it's well worth your while to check out I Am's blog. OK, now for the questions...this is a really hard one, or two-parter as the case may be...I suppose the question I'd most like to be asked would be 'is motherhood what you thought it would be/does it live up to your expectations'. It stands out for me because I think reality is almost always different than what you expect or what you've imagined. And I think society expects parenting (mothering in particular) to be all rainbows and unicorns. I think it's important for people to be able to say it's fantastic and is also kicking my ass without an online riot ensuing.

3. Another vacation pic...this is the view from the second floor deck. At some point I'll do a recap of that fantastic week.

UPDATED - Jumped in on some other blog hops run by new followers/newly followed by me-ers :)

I have a pair of questions for you. First, what exactly is Friday Follow and how does it work? I'm a bit embarrassed that I have to ask but I think there's still something in the concept or execution of this that I'm missing. Anyway, now for the "real" question, which is a two parter:

What is the question you would most like to be asked?

Why does that question stand out as important/interesting to you?

Eco-Friendly and Frugal said...

Another new blog followers from Blog Hop Friday here!

sara said...

Grace - I KNEW I loved you! Can't wait for the new albumn. My sister's and I have seen Ray every time he's been to Atlanta, always such great shows. He's coming here in Sept too but is double-billing with David Grey so we haven't gotten tix yet, but I'm sure we will.

sara said...

Jacque and Eco-Friendly - Welcome!! Hope you guys have a great weekend!

sara said...

I Am - Aren't you ever the thought-provoker. I know I'll never fail to be engaged when I see your name.

Friday-Follow is a way to find blogs that you may not have discovered on your own...and a way for them to find you. If you go to the Friday Follow button it gives you directions about participation. i've found some amazing people this way.

I talk, then you talk, and sometimes I talk back again. It's a conversation! And we can all pretend we're not internet shut-ins who never talk to anyone. Hooray!
