IT'S QUESTIONS TIME with TBB ASKS


Oh yeah here we are with our new series: The Blended Blog ASKS!!! How fun is this!! We are going to learn so much more about each other. Each month on the first Monday of the month, we'll have a theme and link-up to go with.  
This month's theme is Summer and so while we're still digging it, let's get to it and answer these summertime most anticipated questions!!



1. Pool, Lake or Ocean? Pool all the way! I even wrote a post about it a couple years ago called Pool Dreams and now that dream is coming true as we are installing a pool next Spring at the new house.
1989 Big Hair and Neon

2. Camping, Cottage or Hotel? Cottage or Condo on the Lake 

3. Favorite ice cream flavor? Lemon

4. P.J's, nightgown, T-shirts/shorts or Birthday Suit? Actually loose tank top & shorts

5. Favorite Summer beverage? Vitaminwater Zero~Lemonade Flavor
Maybe this one has vodka in it...maybe

6. Would you rather be hot or cold? Cold because I can put on layers, when I'm hot, like overheated, I'm miserable. I HATE Being HOT!!!

7. Sandals with heels or flats? Neither...wedge sandal



8. Shorts or skirts? I've always loved skirts in the Summer. I wear shorts around the house.

9. Sit in the sun or the shade? Sun baby! But after a few hours, the umbrella is my friend.

10. Water, Tea or Soda? Water, water, water

11. Favorite Summer Fruit, Vegetable 3 way tie for fruit: peaches, strawberries and watermelon. Veggie is fresh green beans.

12. Sunrise or Sunset? Sunset!! Mr. Nine and I are suckers for beautiful sunsets.

13. Bike ride or walk? Walk. I'm a walker, always have been. I shoot for 5-7 miles a day. 

14. Winery or Brewery? Winery


But wait..I like a brewery too!!!

15. Garden or No Garden? No Garden but we kind of want one, just not the work. True story: growing up my dad had a HUGE garden and when I was 11, I had my picture taken for the newspaper with his winning cabbage...biggest in the county, it weighed over 30lbs!

16. Big Summer Concert or Music in The Park? Medium size, lol. Like, our County Fair

17. Favorite cookout food? Pasta Salad

18. Dine Indoor or Patio? Patio...preferably a rooftop patio. 

19. Favorite Summer destination? You know, our Favorite secret Michigan BEACH town! LOVE the Beach!!
The Beautiful Bay in town

20. Big Theme Park or Local Carnival? Local Carnival, but more like our BIG County Fair, not 
a rinky dink!



21. Drinks Blended or On the Rocks? Blended Baby! BUT in moderation as watch the calories, lol!! When the new house is done, you're all invited for blended drinks by the pool. I'll try and match the drink to your swimsuits, lol!

22. Popsicle or Freezie Flavor of Choice? Um Wine Freezie, no I'll just say the red ones. 

23. Hot Dog or Hamburger? Burger Baby!!

Join all the August Fun if you can!!
Next month's Theme is School and Routine related!
Mark your calendars for Monday, Sept. 4th!!!

  8. This is so fun!! I may have to do another post today and link up!! I prefer the pool too and I HATE being too hot, I don't want anyone touching me when I'm hot and I get easily aggravated LOL! How awesome for your Dad to win with a 30lb cabbage!!!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I like big cabbages and I cannot lie! Hahaha we have a tiny garden in the back with cukes, tomatoes, zucchini, tons of peppers, and green beans! I need to start up my fall garden because the opportunity it plant is a slim window down here. I cannot wait for your dream pool to come to life. Dont you love how those color block bikinis are back? All the teenagers are sporting them and I'm like wait a second...I remember the FIRST time that was around! Love you to pieces big sis! xo

  12. I love a great blended drink too but also, like you, hate the calories. I love the rooftop patio and the brewery and winery question had me torn. How exciting for a pool next spring. Love this link-up.

  13. That was fun- thanks for hosting! Love all of your wedges!

  14. I'm with you - pool all the way, baby!! I'm SO not a sand/beach kind of gal. Plus, there is something to be said for being able to sit on a floatie and sip a cocktail while getting your tan on. Now I wish I were doing that today instead of being late for work!! :) Thanks for sharing these fun facts! Always love learning more about one of my favorites -XO

  15. This was fun Andrea! Thank you for inviting me to be apart of something different! Yay! I love a little change up from time to time. I would have guessed wedges for you for sure and you know I'm coming to swim in your pool next summer. ;) Happy Monday and let's hear if for another month of summer!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Love this new link up! I need to step up my walking game to catch up with all the miles you walk. :) Have a marvelous Monday!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Love this link up and thanks for inviting me. Jenn and I had fun answering the questions. I don't mind sitting at the pool but I usually won't go in. Pools,chlorine and my hair are not friends AT ALL. I'm with you, cold all the way, you can always get warm but it's so hard to cool off when its hot. I hate the heat. HATE! haha

    ReplyDelete
  18. YUM to pasta salad! And yesss to wineries AND breweries! I also would rather be in a pool, but love the setting of being at a lake or the beach <3

  22. I loved the reminder to watch those summertime adult beverage calories - ha! Yes, the hips don't lie do they? :-)

    ReplyDelete
  23. These posts are the best! We can easily go walk and drink our water together, then relax sitting by the pool drinking colorful drinks. My suit is multi color - what drink are you going to make me? Ha!

    ReplyDelete
  24. You crack me up with the neither answer!!
    How fun to read this, Andrea!!!

  28. Oh man!! I forgot I had this post ready to go and posted about my weekend this morning instead. I need to get a planner so I can remember this stuff. I had such fun answering the questions. I am with you on water, being cold over hot, the pool, wedges, sunsets and pasta salads. Mmmmm I could go for pasta salad right now! Hope you have a great weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  29. haha, you are too cute, yes to a drink that matches my swim suit! :) And yes to being cold over hot...so much better, although I've never lived somewhere where it's truly cold, so maybe I would change my mind.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  31. Love this Andrea!! And your throwback photo!! You're totally a summer girl too...love it! Pasta salad was a great answer!! I have a great recipe for one you'd probably love!! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  32. That 1989 bathing suit pic... yep... I had a neon green bathing suit too... with a zipper up the front ;) Good times.
    I love vitamin water zero - but never tried the lemonade - I need to give that a try

    ReplyDelete
  33. This was SO fun to read, Andrea! I am not much of a drinker but when I do have something to drink, I love me a blended drink.

  34. Naturally we have a lot in common. No surprise there😀. I will say that I'll never want to be cold though. How did I miss that you were going to have a pool at the new house. Color me jealous!!!! I love me some Lemonade Vitamin Water Zero too. Most of those kind of drinks I can't get behind, but that's a good one. (Try the Bai Coconut partially frozen and then shake it...de-licious and a fun summer treat). Happy Monday gorgeous and thanks for hosting this fun link up! XO

    ReplyDelete
  35. These were such fun questions, and I wish that I'd be able to link up! I'm totally with you about sunsets, I can't get enough of them no matter what time of the year! I would also much rather be cold than hot because I hate sweating!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Love this! I absolutely adore that flash back photo! Too fun. I want to be cold and soon give me layers any day and make up that stays on while I am putting it on!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Great drinks.

  40. The throwback photo of you in the pool is classic! Such a babe! I'm with you on loving both wineries and breweries the same but I just went with wineries cause the scenery can be so majestic.
    Hope you had a fab Monday! xo Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis

  41. I just realized I skipped over the eatting question - and I'm like you, outdoors and on a great rooftop patio!! I'm remembering your invite for drinks and matching the bathing suit!!

  55. OMG....I totally had that same swimsuit in 1989 Andrea in a different shade!! I loved that suit so much. Boy what I wouldn't give to be as fat as I thought I was then haha. We definitely could hang together friend....my answers would have been very similar!
