Five Question Friday
Well it is finally Friday. Its rainy and chilly here this morning. Couple that with a not-so-busy schedule today and I would much rather be at home in the bed or cuddled up on the couch with my pups. Due to my schedule having some free time this morning, I decided I would particpate in 5 Question Friday. If you want to play along, head over to My Little Life and link up.
On to the questions:
1. Groceries are high right now what is easiest way you have found to cut back?
My favorite money saving tip for groceries is menu planning. I plan a menu for a week (sometimes two). I make my grocery list based on that menu. I try (sometimes fail) to only buy the groceries on my list because those are the only things that I positively need
2. What are the top 3 things on your "bucket list"?
- Be a mother
- Make a differnce in the lives of children I am licensed to protect
- Grow old with Christopher
These may be lame, but they are what I find important in life.
3. Would you rather give up AC or heat?
I would give up the AC before I would give up heat. I know logic says you can always add more blankets or clothes, but there are only so many things you can take off, but I still take my heat. I'm cold all the time. I have my heater running under my desk at work year round.
4. What's your favorite cocktail??
This lady doesn't drink so no favorite cocktail
5. What was your first job & how old were you?
I was 13 when I began waitressing at my grandparents resturant - the Ozark Cafe. It was a historic cafe downtown in our small town. I waited tables from 13-18. I quit only to leave town to head off to college. Two weeks after I left, my grandfather passed away and the cafe closed after being open 59 1/2 years. It was a wonderful place. I loved going there as a child and I absolutely loved working there. Our customers still see me around town and always talk to me. I joke that from the years I worked there about 50 people adopted my as a grandchild too. To read some articles about the cafe, see here and here.
Hope you all have a wonderful Friday and weekend!
