Answer Me This ~ Summer
Linking up with Kendra from Catholic All Year for a new-to-me link-up Answer Me This.
1. At what temperature do you keep the thermostat set? Summer, winter, day, night?
Right now our thermostat is set at 78 degrees, but we have a ceiling fan in our bedroom, so it feels cooler. Our thermostat is very sensitive, and at times it blows freezing cold air from the vents onto my toes and makes me feel miserable- especially while I’m doing dishes. So I often find myself turning it up to 85 and forgetting about it … until my husband gets mad because he finds the towel over the vent and the air slowly stopping. Then, the upstairs is freezing and ends up about 10 degrees cooler than the downstairs.
2. What is your favorite frozen beverage?
I like frozen margaritas, but I haven’t had very many of them. Maybe between 5-10 in my life? Say, when I went to Applebee’s or a Mexican restaurant for a date or that kind of thing. I once made virgin pina coladas in our Vitamix. They were super yummy! I served them to my parents. I think they were here for a birthday party? Remind me to do that again with real alcohol once I'm not pregnant.
3. Where do you keep your keys?
In a drawer next to our fridge. I have a key ring but it has since been adopted by our rosary collection, so I never put my keys there now.
4. Have you ever really been lost?
In high school (Junior year), my friend and I went for a hike while on a ski trip. We ended up hiking about three miles in the snow, and many times during that experience I thought we were lost. We were on a hiking trail, but it was so covered with snow, we couldn’t see where we were going. It was very cold and very long. I remember asking her this question: Is there anything about you that I don’t know? And since we had been friends since the cradle I’m pretty sure her answer was, “no.” ha! :) We eventually found our way to a cabin where a very kind gentleman with a snow plow had pity on us and gave us a ride back to our hotel.
As for being lost in the car.. . more times than I can count. I remember one time in particular. When we lived in Annapolis, a friend who lived about 20 minutes outside the little city invited me over for a Girls' Night. I brought oreos and some drinks, but I got so lost trying to find her house I ended up eating the oreos alone as I drove back home. By the by, the automatic Maps app on the iPhone 5 isn't as good as Google Maps. Ask me how I know ;) Yes, I learned the hard way. ;)
5. What is the last movie you saw in the theaters?
I can’t remember! I think it might have been Planes 2 with my daughter Molly, who is 7. We went to the cheap theatre and saw it on a Saturday afternoon while Stephen stayed home with the other 3.
