I'm of the mind-set if "everyone else is doing it", it must be fun...so I'm jumping on the bandwagon and doing fill-ins on Fridays. I can never think of anything to blog about anyway, so this should prove helpful. You should do it too...just saying.
1. What food reminds you of your spouse?
Pizza...definitely. Jeremy could live off of pepperoni pizza. I remember eating it at least 4 times a week when we were dating and first married. It's relatively cheap and leftovers (if there are any when Jeremy gets done...)are even better the next day!
2. Who would you rather sit next to in a cross-country plane ride: an irritating non-stop talker, or a quiet stare-er?
The non-stop talker. I've only flown once (technically twice if you count switching planes on a lay-over.) so it's really nerve-racking for me. I would much rather sit next to someone who's talking so I can focus on them. I get motion-sickness, so I can't read or sleep on a plane. Please talk to me!
3. What are your best tips on how to save money?
I have found that if you pay yourself first from each paycheck, you'll be less likely to spend more. Say you get $500 every two weeks. Pay yourself $40 to spend on whatever and then divvy up the rest for bills, groceries, gas, etc. It worked for me. Also, when you see something you really want to buy, ask yourself, "Am I going to use this now? Is it something I really need, or just want?". If you hesitate, or answer no, put it back. I have been guilty of not doing this and currently have 2 shirts and a scarf I've never worn...bought just because they were cute. Don't do that! LOL.
4. What is your favorite summer memory?
As a child, I would have to say spending summer days, all day, at the lake with the whole family. I really miss my Dad in the summer because it was his favorite time of the year. He loved to barbecue, take the boat on the lake, and fish. As an adult, I would have to say the summer I was married, 2008! And last summer was great too. Jeremy and I went on our first anniversary trip to Maggie Valley,NC (the first time he'd ever been there)and we had an awesome time!
5. Do you believe in ghosts?
I tend to not believe, but a week or so ago, my TV was turning itself off and on and the remote didn't have any batteries in it. So...I don't know. I have an open mind. I suppose anything is possible.
