Five Question Friday

Filed under: Five Question Friday — Amy @ 12:22 pm
1. What is your go to comfort food or sweet?
Hershey Bar that I break up and slather with peanut butter.
I love it more than a Reese’s Peanut Butter cup and I go to it every time.
If we aren’t talking sweets, then I’ll have to go with baked macaroni and cheese or a Stouffer’s chicken pot pie.
God, I love that stuff.

2. What is the most romantic place you’ve ever been to?
I’ve never really been anywhere where the location itself would be labeled”romantic.”
Even our honeymoon was at DisneyWorld.

However, Real Man manages to bring the romance to anyplace we go so that DisneyWorld or Salem or Ohio can become a romantic destination.

He loves me and I love him and we love being together, so taking a walk on Patriot’s Path, behind the kids who are skipping ahead can be romantic and sweet.

Maybe one day we’ll smooch on a gondola in Venice, but for now, we make the most of what we have.

3. What is your favorite thing about fall/Halloween?
I love the cooler weather, so that, right off the bat, is a winner for me.
However, to pin it down, it’s the feeling of home and family that fall brings.
Kids playing in the leaves, the magic of Halloween, the togetherness of Thanksgiving.
There is so much about fall that is beautiful, both visually and emotionally.

4. How would you spend 24 hours alone?
I’d sleep as late as my body would allow (probably 8 am, I’m so trained to wake with the kids), then would have a cup of tea with some wheat toast and sugar free raspberry jam and a book.
Then, I’d go for a rigorous hike, with my iPod playing in my ears.
After the hike, I’d take a long, hot bath with a book and I’d stay in until the water started to turn cold.
I’d lay around with my book, maybe watch some tv, maybe shut my eyes.
I’d write in my journal and work on my novels and just do a lot of thinking.
Nothing thrilling or exciting, but it’s what I’d do with my 24 hours of solitude.

5. Does you husband bring you flowers? Are you the bring-me-flowers type of girl?
Because he loves me.
I am not a flowers girl.  I like treats and surprises, but flowers would not be the way to go.
They make my home smell like a funeral parlor and they are just one more thing for me to take care of.
They die.
Why give someone a gift that will die?
No thanks.
