Whatever Friday

Pin It

Friday, Friday, it’s Friday!

Did y’all have a good week? I hope it was full of bunnies, glitter, and rainbows.

Let’s get started, shall we?

1. This week I talked about:

How I repeat myself.



How you really shouldn’t make me mad:



And how my daughter is a mini Donald Trump:


2. I never did post an April Fool’s post this year. Oops. So I’ll leave you with a reminder from last year:



I’m actually a little scared for April Fool’s Day this year. We will be at my brother-in-law’s house. I think April Fool’s Day is like his Christmas. Pray for me.


3. Tuesday night we had Crockpot French Dip Sandwiches on homemade hoagie rolls. To. Die. For. I considered going swimming in my bowl of au jus. Seriously. Go make that for dinner.


4. A few weeks ago, I got tagged by two different blogs in an “about me” style post. I’m finally doing some housekeeping and getting around to answering their questions. I’m not into tagging people for things…but I love talking about myself. So it’s kinda perfect. Thanks to Julie at White Lights on Wednesday and Kelly at Live Laugh Rowe for the tags. I kind of combined the lists of questions, lest you get bored. {What you don’t want to hear all about me? I’m insulted.}

What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?
Butter Pecan. Preferably from Preston’s in Burlingame, California.

Where do you live?
Rocklin (outside Sacramento)

If you could be instantly be awesome at anything, what would it be?
What? I’m not already awesome at everything? Huh. Who knew.
(Just kidding. Probably running. I wish I was able to run and keep it up.)

If you were stuck on a desert island, what 3 things could you not live without?
A book, my phone, and chocolate. (Wait. Was I supposed to say my husband and kid?)

What book do you find yourself reading over and over again?
This is a tricky question. Depends on my mood. I have lots of answers: Lightning, by Dean Koontz. The Twilight series.  The Hunger Games series. Too. Many. Choices.

What’s your favorite junk food?
Again, too many choices! Cookies. Sugar cereal. Chex Mix. My head might explode if I try to think of a single one.

What is your favorite meal?
Village Host Pizza. Down the street from Preston’s. It’s like bar hopping, only better.

What is your favorite item in your closet? 
My black boots. Franco Sarto makes shoes that are made for my feet. They’re the stretchy kind – no zipper. They make me feel instantly tall, thin, and pretty. Only problem? I cannot get them off by myself.

When is the last time you cried?
Probably five minutes ago? Seriously, I can’t keep track. I’m like a running Hallmark commercial.

What would your dream vacation destination be?
Paris. For at least a week. In a flat. Near the Rue Cler.

Describe your personality in three words.
(According to me other other people?) I would say creative, anal, and giving.

Dream dinner party guest list! (Three people, living or dead)
Laura Ingalls Wilder, Dean Koontz, and Andy Cohen. Mazel!

Why did you start blogging?
To get away from my kid. (Is that not an acceptable answer? FINE. To find a creative outlet. That better?)



Thanks so much Julie and Kelly!

Now, I’d love to hear what all of your answers are. Go!


Have a great weekend!

    I’m a lover of butter pecan and have a pair of Franco Sarto black boots too:D Great minds think alike! Enjoy your weekend…

    I don’t if we can still be friends after the butter pecan comment. Where is the chocolate in that? Well I forgive you this time, since you make me laugh so much.

      LOL! So sorry. Can you believe I *gasp* don’t really like chocolate based ice cream? You still love me, right?

    Butter pecan ice cream?! Lol, I agree with Sue. Except, where’s the bubblegum in that? (I have no room to talk).
    Anyway, I loved this week on your blog so so much. The chicks are SOCUTE! And you had my mouth watering at those crockpot French dips. Dude, where are the leftovers??

    Ooooh, I love these kinds of posts! You get to learn a little more about the person behind the blog. I was “tagged” recently too and did a post. Can I answer your questions too? :o)

    I’m not a huge ice cream fan, but there’s a salted caramel one at our neighborhood farmers market that I would get naked for.
    I live in Oregon. Land of the rain.
    I wish I could sing. Well.
    I could not live without wine, cheese and wine.
    I’ve never read a book more than once, but I talk about reading The Shack again and Jitterbug Perfume. I’ve read a zillion Dean Koontz books, back when he was still Dean R. Koontz, but haven’t picked one up in forever. I think you’ve inspired me to do so.
    My favorite junk food is Smart Food popcorn. I’ve recently discovered the Kettle Corn one and can’t stop eating it.
    My favorite meal is anything with cheese on it.
    Nothing in my closet is my favorite. I pretty much live in wadded up sweat pants from the drawer.
    The last time I cried was February 1st – when we had our third baby.
    Dream vaca would have to be in a hut on the ocean in Bora Bora. Without children.
    Personality in only three words?! Shy, OCD, Caring.
    Dinner guests: Dean Martin, Jesus, and my deceased dad.
    I started blogging because my girlfriend made me do it. Now I won’t shut up.

    So glad I found your blog. Happy Friday!!!!!!

    I made a different crock pot French Dip sandwich, and the au jus was so yummy, but there was so much leftover, so I caramelized a bunch of onions and turned it into French Onion Soup, with the crusty, melty cheese on top, and everything.

    chex mix is most definitely my favorite junk food too. I think you’re pretty awesome as is, too! Have a great weekend Dorothy. :)

    Thanks for participating in the fun, Dorothy! I enjoyed getting to know a little more about you…. and your sense of humor :)
    Have a fabulous weekend. Hugs!!

    Laura Ingalls Wilder would be #1 on my dinner list! How awesome would that be??? Wow. My mind swirls just to think of it. Maybe I’ll do a post about my visit to her museum…
    Have a great weekend, Dorothy! I’m going to try your Bunny Munch Mix for my students next week.

    Your “about me’s” had me cracking up! Especially the one about why you started your blog. I can totally relate! I’m with you on the deserted island as well!
