SB’s Questions

When was the last time you did something kind and what was it?

I think it’s important to show kindness everyday…even if it’s as simple as holding a door for someone.

Your most beautiful childhood memory?

Swimming.  I loved water and still do.

Pizza or pasta?

Man this is a tough one!  I’d have to say pizza wins.  Who doesn’t love some bread piled with sauce, cheese, meat, and veggies?  Well except maybe a vegetarian.

Why do mother’s need coffee and wine?

Coffee is to keep us mommies awake, which in turn, keeps the kids alive and wine is to help the coffee wear off in order to sleep!  Wine is also a necessity for sanity for me.

Do you have a pet and if yes, what kind of pet?

We have a German Shepard named Roxy.  She is the best dog that I have ever owned…and I have always had a dog all my life.

What invention do you think the world would need and what stops you from inventing it?

A drug to make everyone happy.  I think there are so many of us who suffer from turmoil and sadness.  I’m not a scientist and I don’t see me becoming one in the future.

What’s the secret of life?

Humor!  I think everyone needs a good laugh everyday!

What question would you ask the president of the United States if you would have a one-on-one with him? 

What the fuck heck are you doing?  Seriously. I am not much of a political person though, therefore I won’t even discuss politics or religion with most people.

What would be your solution for world peace?

To do away with greed.  I think greed causes a lot of people to become abnormally psycho problems.

What are you cooking for dinner?

Do leftovers count?  That was then….tonight I am making Jambalaya.

Susan’s Questions

Did you enjoy school?

Nope.  I hated school.  I feel that high school teaches you nothing to prepare you for the “real” world.

What is the saying you despise the most?

Is it snack time?  Drives me CRAZY!

What is your most treasured possession?

Memories.  And a ring that my late grandma owned.  There’s a long story to it.

How do you spend a typical Saturday night?

Preferably sleeping 😆

Name 3 things you are really good at and 3 things you are really bad at. Good:

  1. Friendship
  2. Honesty
  3. Bitching Speaking my mind


  1. Being a housewife homemaker
  2. Communicating my feelings…unless of course it’s bitching.
  3. Baking.  Love to cook but could burn boxed brownies.

Do you care what others think of you?

Only those who are really close to me.  The ones who truly matter.

What is your favorite movie and why?

I would have to go with my childhood favorite of “Flashdance”.  I used to watch it everyday and it inspired me to never give up on dreams.

Update: When A Man Loves A Woman, Urban Cowboy or if most recent South Paw…awesome movie if you haven’t seen it.

What is the worst movie you have ever seen?

This one’s so easy….”Cyrus”!!!  Worst movie ever!!!

What was the last thing you ate?

Sunflower seeds.  Have you tried the Spitz Spicy Sweet Chili yet?  Well get your ass to the store and get some!

Update:  Does Corona qualify as eating?

Do you believe in aliens? Why or why not?

I do believe that there is no possible way that we could be the only life form in the entire universe.  There is just so much “unknown” out there.

Debbie’s Questions

1. If you were given the chance to go walk on the moon would you do it?

I don’t think I could leave my family and veer off into space.  Too many things can and have happened on that adventure.  Before I had kids the answer would have been HELL YES!

2. Camping by a beautiful waterfall, in a pretty wood with gorgeous weather, or 5* luxury accommodation with terrible weather?

Camping!  I could really care less about luxury.  Sure it’s nice but highly overpriced and overrated.  Give me the great outdoors and some beautiful scenery and a beer and I am golden.

3. Which is your favourite social networking site and why?

Have to go with Facebook.  I know it’s a cliche but I have stuck to a rule of I only have people on my personal Facebook that I actually know or have had an actual conversation with.

Update:  Instagram or Twitter for me.

4. Beer or wine?

I have to make a choice?  I used to be a huge beer drinker but lately I am more of a wine connoisseur.  I love trying different brands of reds.  You can read about some of my wine reviews here.

5. Which item(s) can you never leave the house without?

  1. My clothes
  2. My phone
  3. My glasses
  4. My purse
  5. My mind…although I leave that sucker everywhere.

6. If you had to take part in a reality TV show, which would it be and why?

“The Amazing Race”  I think my husband and I would rock that show.  We travel well together and don’t crack under pressure.  We do however have a tendency to become…shall we say….smart asses.  We both think we are right which can cause slight yelling in public arguments.  But hey that’s great for television right?

Update:  If I had the chance I would make a Real Housewives In The Middle Of Fucking Nowhere!  That’s me.

7. If every job had the same salary, which job would you choose?

This is a great question Debbie.  I love being a mom.  But if I wasn’t a mom I would have to go with flower deliverer.  People are always smiling when they get a delivery of flowers.

8. Would you rather: write a terrible blog post and have it go viral or write an amazing blog post and only have 10 people read it?

Oh let’s be honest here…of course I would want any post to go viral.

9. If you could be known for one thing, what would it be?

The difference I made in the lives of my children.  A good mother, wife, friend.  A good person in general.  I have done a lot of wrong in my past and now I just want to make my life right by doing right by the people I love.

10. If you could change you’re first name would you? If yes, what would you choose to be called?

Nope.  I love my name and thank my mommy for giving me a “not so ordinary” name.

Update:  I deleted who I had nominated and my questions because well…they were lame but if you would like to participate in my newest round of questions you can go here.

  1. Most of your questions only assure me how much we actually have in common. I love Camping but haven’t been since I moved to MA. Not that there aren’t camp sites here, just with the rocky marriage I had, among other things, it wasn’t a priority. I’m hoping to change that this Summer. I’m also a Facebook-er too and I would totally go to the moon if I didn’t have my kids, LOL! Love the post Trista! Thanks so much for hosting #momsterlink

    1. You’re like my virtual sister. If only you lived next door. We just bought a new camper and have planned out our entire summer already. We will be going camping every days off that my hubby has. Thanks for linking up lady. And congrats on two weeks in a row being in the top 3 most read!

      1. That’s awesome! We don’t have a lot of close places around here so our trips this summer will require a bit of driving but I have lots of teaching to do with my girl who’s going into kindergarten …so the time will be used wisely.

      2. It’s a great way to unplug and bond. Watching 2 of my 3 littles catch their first fish last year was amazing and not once did they ask for their tablets. We do however watch a movie at night to calm them down for bed and then daddy and I have alone time out by the fire….with beer lol.

    1. I follow what’s going on with politics but I believe everyone has their own opinions and the same goes for religion. So for me it’s just better to keep those opinions to oneself. Thanks for linking up and commenting! Glad to have you part of my community 🙂


  2. Each week I swear, I grow to adore you even more. 🙂 I am such a shy introvert and you are so blunt and unfiltered that I’m instantly drawn. LOL Some of my best friends are the same. I think opposites attract is equally true for friendships.
    Thanks for hosting! #monsterslink

    1. Awww thank you so much. What a nice thing for you to say. Believe it or not I am an introvert as well. It’s so easy to be outgoing and silly sitting behind a keyboard but in real life I have a horrible time trying to find my flock. Especially after moving 2 years ago. Actually I don’t even need a flock…just one or two mommies to get together and cackle and possibly drink wine and cuss like sailors with. lol. Thanks for linking up and commenting!


    1. Are you in the US? I really want to try to plan something for some of us US bloggers to get together. I would love to meet a lot of my UK blogging friends too but not until my little ones are a bit older as it would be a family vacay cause I know damn good and well my husband isn’t going to let me go run around the UK without him lol.


  3. Love the answers to these questions. I couldn’t agree more regarding school, I learnt a lot more through ‘life lessons’ than I did at school. I really don’t think it sets us up socially. Oh and as for Saturday nights, I always fall asleep on the sofa.. then when I wake up on a Sunday I feel cheated lol! x #momsterslink

    1. My hubby has 2 weekends off a month and we will rent movies and I end up falling asleep in my recliner but he usually wakes me up to go to bed. Sometimes I get mad at him and tell him just leave me sleep because sometimes I can’t get back to sleep once woken up. But he doesn’t listen lol. Thanks so much for linking up!

  4. Fab post, and it was lovely to learn a little more about you again! I LOVE your answer to what is your most prized possession, memories really are the most amazing thing we can ever have aren’t they? #momsterslink

    Liked by 1 person

    1. Yes. I try to capture all of them as I know I can’t remember them all and someday my memory will escape me. I have time hop on my phone and I just love looking back at all the memories. Thanks for linking up and commenting.

  5. Great answers, Trista. I too would like to be remembered for being a good mother – it’s the most important job we do. And I agree there has to be other life out there somewhere! #momsterlink x

    1. Yes! It really is so important for me to never have regrets as a mother. Of course I know there will be some because as mothers we still need a life too, but I want to know that I always put their needs first, that they grew up happy, and that when they are adults I can be the person they know they can count on no matter what.
