Friday Hops!

It's the end of another week!  That means it's time for the FRIDAY HOPS! If you are here for FIVE QUESTION FRIDAY only, then just scroll down!

Have a FANTASTIC weekend!

First is Hilary's Follow Friday Four Fill-In at Feeling Beachie!  

Hillary says:  I would LOVE it if you could please help me spread the word about this hop!

This week’s statements:

1. I don’t understand why Hubs leaves so many things around here undone--the tree pruning; the yard mowing; the bathroom floor; the gutters that never got put up properly and are about to fall off the house; the list is, he will say he was dealing with his mother dying and the results of that.  HOWEVER, I'm pretty darn sure she wasn't dying for 27 dang years.  

2. I don’t know what is worse, a man who consistently degrades women or the women who take it.

3. My feet always get cold in the winter.  Of course, that may be related to the fact that I don't wear shoes in the house even during the winter months. 

4. I wish I owned a cottage on the coast of Maine.  I would never leave it.

Next is Five Question Friday from Mama M. at My Little Life. 

This HOP is a great way to get to know each other better and to meet new friends!  If you click on the button, it'll take you right over there to join in the fun! 

Questions for Friday, July 15th:

1. If you knew your best friend's spouse was cheating on her or him, would you tell her (him)?  Probably not.  That would involve me putting myself in the middle of something and that is a VERY dangerous place to be in most situations.  Especially when something like that is involved.  Plus, I already have never told her things I know about her daughter  Although, I might consider a little investigation of my own and just happen to show up where the scum was going to be and just happen to have BFF with me....I might consider that. 

2. Soda in a can or a bottle?  I just say NO to soda.  But, when I did drink it, always in the bottle NEVER a can. 

3. What do you wash first, hair or body?  I wash my hair first and leave the conditioner in while I wash the rest of me. 

4. What advice would you give to any new mama?  Throw away those stupid books and follow your instincts!  NOBODY knows YOUR child better than YOU! 

5. What is your best hangover remedy?  Drink LOTS of water during and after your little drinking binge and you won't wake up with a hangover.  Hangover headaches are the result of dehydration.  This newsworthy piece of information brought to you by the mother of four Lovelies who all attended college. Money well spent.   

Have a fantabulous weekend everyone!


  1. Love the answers...esp 4 - i wouldn't leave either!

  2. I love how you answered No. 1. That is what I would do to, but couldn't think of how to put it in my post. Totally agree about the parenting advice too. The books are written for someone 'elses' kiddo, never for yours. We are all unique, which is a good and bad thing.

  3. I think we are married to the same man..

  4. Brenda-Wouldn't that just be the BEST?!

    Kimberlee-Yeah, being in the middle is just no good! I wonder if the parenting books were written just about their own kids? LOL

    Cindy-Oh no! Not you too!

  5. Loved your answers. I know that's beginning to sound so tiresomely repetitive and rehearsed, but it's true :)

    I think I'd want my best friend to tell me if my spouse was cheating on me! It would be horrible knowing she'd known all along ;)

    You're so right about mothering. Follow your instincts, I always say.

    I'd like a cottage perched on a mountain!

  6. Desiree- I know my BFF and she would appreciate me telling at first but then she would change and it would not be pretty. How about a cottage perched on a mountain at the beach? LOL Your comments are always appreciated and never sound rehearsed. I never mind repetitive positivity!

  7. Ok, I joind your blog hop today!

    Love your answers, I too have given advice on a hangover remedy
    to college kids!


  8. It must be a "man thing" to put th ings off! We lived in our previous home for thirty years...and when we moved, it still wasn't finished!

  9. Oh Oh OH!!!

    Don't get me started on my views of people who give and get mistreatment. I understand after years of it, you can get beat down to the point that you can't defend yourself - but there is a point at the very beginning that somewhere in your mind you're thinking - "this ain't right"!!!

    Or as my mother would say "you can't get walked on [like a rug] unless you lay down".

  10. Can I come visit you at your cottage in Maine?

  11. Susan- Yay! I'll hop over there and check out your answers!

    Kathy-It must be. But his mother sure didn't have any trouble getting things done at her my husband. Go figure.

    Donna- Amen Sista! Your mother was very wise.

    Blessed- I'm hopping over to your place to see which number three you're talking about. LOL

    Patrice- Any time you want! And bring Wendell. And the girls!

  12. YOU WON!!!! You won!!! Stop by Pam and give me your address and I'll send off the good stuff.
    Love the hops of yours. Keep them going, I love reading.
    Take care and have a blessed weekend.

  13. I just thought it was a rule of life that you finish a house only when you're ready to put it on the market. ;-)

    Hope you have a great weekend. Love your answers. I think you've got a few who want to accompany you to that cottage on the coast of Maine!

  14. Let's see we totally agree on #1,3,5, does that mean we're 'odd' kind of friends? I really like all your blog hops, you have so many fun ones, I never know which one to pick...

  15. I am sorry, but I laughed out loud to your #1. My hubby is the complete opposite. He is compulsive aobut getting stuff done, and makes me the reluctant helper :)

  16. Those were fun! Hope your having a nice weekend.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! It makes me feel connected to everyone even though we may live far apart! Have a wonderful day!
