Adventures in Blogging: How is it October Hodgepodge

1. What's one thing you learned in September?

I've got a good one for this! At a dinner party with some other couples from our church I learned an interesting fact about one of the men in the group. His mother came to America from Poland in 1912...on the Titanic! (well, the Titanic got her part of the way to America!) If you saw the movie Titanic, do you remember how the 2nd class passengers were locked below deck? His mother was one of those passengers. Her and several others managed to find their way past the barricades and on to a life raft....I was mesmerized by his story! 

2. Acorn squash, butternut squash, spaghetti squash, yellow squash, zucchini squash, or blech! hold the squash... what's your favorite squash? What's your favorite way toprepare your favorite squash?

Blech! I am not a fan of any kind of squash. I don't think I've ever made it...

3. The older I get the_______________________________.

"quicker the years go by." I thought 'older' people were crazy for saying that when I was a kid, but it's so true! 

4. What's your favorite television theme song ever?

Oh, gosh! That's the hardest question of the week for me. I think I am going to go with the theme song from FRIENDS. 

But then again I am pretty sure I still know all the words to the Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme song...

5. What do you wish you'd spent more time doing five years ago?

5 years ago was 2008. I was out of college. Sharing an apt with my friend Sarah. Working as a substitute teacher, tutor, and Starbucks barrister I guess I would have spent more time enjoying life and not working so much! But the bills needed to be off the work I went! 

6. What item do you most need (or want) to add to your wardrobe this fall?

Ooo! I love this question! I would like a new pair of brown boots. Maybe like these.

And a fall scarf or 2. All my scarves seem to be winter or spring. I am really wanting a fun fall scarf...maybe like this one. 

7. On October 2, 1950 the Peanuts cartoon was introduced to the world. What was your favorite cartoon when you were a kid? 

I always love reading the funny pages when I was a kid...I think Dennis the Menace was my favorite cartoon. 

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

I smile every time I drive up to our house because of the newly painted front door


  1. That IS an interesting story about the friend's mother on the Titantic! Wonder... Was she living when the movie came out? And, yes, I love your red door! (I have one too.)

  2. Your answer to #1, amazing!.. We matched on answers #4 and #6!.. And love your new front door! Have a great week! ~tina

  3. Love that pop of color the red gives to your front door! So welcoming! Wow...amazing story about the woman on the Titanic! I'm here to tell you...fried yellow squash is the only way to go!

  4. FRIENDS!! How did I forget that?!?!?

    I think brown boots are the fall fashion of this year everyone is needing.

  5. Wow-what a great story, and how lucky you were to hear a first hand account. I love a red door!

  6. I love your door! Great story about the Titanic.

  7. That is so fascinating about the man's mother being on the Titantic! I would be mesmerized listening too. I love reading people's answers because they remind me of things I haven't thought about in years - like your answer of Dennis the Menace! I loved that cartoon too. Have a great weekend.
