First of all, I want to say thank you to everybody for the happy wishes and congratulations on my facebook page, twitter and comments on blogger. Y'all know how to make a pregnant woman feel l.o.v.e.d! I almost shed a tear....and for a non-cryer, that's a big deal. This would have nothing whatsoever to do with hormones, would it?!?!? :)
1. Groceries are high right now what is easiest way you have found to cut back?
When purchasing gluten-free items, there's really no way to cut back other than purchase less of it and stretch the food out. Eat less, I guess.
For the boys, I'm all about Aldi. Aldi, Aldi, Aldi. I have a love/hate relationship with that store, BUT I can walk out of there with 8 bags full of groceries for under $130. I appreciate that.
2. What are the top 3 things on your "bucket list"?
Travel (anywhere with new and fun culture. Europe would be fun to return to- I'd hit the northern edge this time- or somewhere like Australia), finish the house (I'd LOVE to not live in a construction zone!!!), figure out what I want to be when I grow up (I want to do something that I love and don't mind doing- rather than just working a job)
3. Would you rather give up AC or heat?
This past summer was the first summer of.my.life that I lived in a home with central air. It was blissful, but I could give it up. I'm a wimp without heat.
4. What's your favorite cocktail??
Oh gosh, it's been a while since I had a beverage....I had a blackberry martini last December- and that was delish!
I cannot remember any others...so they were either REALLY that good that I don't remember, or totally forgettable.
5. What was your first job & how old were you?
My first real FICA-contributing job was at Little Caesar's Pizza. Back before it was a fast and ready pizza joint, and we made each and every one to order. The classmates I worked with were awesome, but the owners were big jerks. I worked there for most of my junior school year, and was almost fired for telling them I couldn't work on my brother's graduation day. Sorry, jerkys....family comes first. After a "stern talking to", I was able to work there throughout the summer, but ended up quitting because I had a better offer (TCBY....really, who WOULDN'T want to work there!) and I never got over the fact that they were jerks.
Happy Weekend friends!
