The Blended Blog Asks...August

Hello friends!  I apologize for my absence from the blogging world lately.  We just got back from vacation, and the spotty wi-fi gave me an excuse to unplug and be in the moment. College boy heads back to school in a few weeks, so I'm enjoying the summer we have left!

Luckily, my cohorts at The Blended Blog continue to be creative and amazing ladies, and they haven't kicked me out even though I keep dropping the ball.  Last month's TBB Asks was so popular, we've decided to make it a monthly series.  We hope you'll join in the fun and share your summertime answers.

Pool, lake or ocean?  I love to bob in the ocean waves, and float in the pool.  Lakes freak me out because you can't see what's below!

Camping, cottage or hotel?  Camping for a weekend, a hotel if it's longer than a few days.

Favorite ice cream flavor?  Chocolate chip mint.

PJ's, nightgown, or birthday suit?  PJ's, because I'm always cold.

Fave summer beverage?  Diet coke every time.

Would you rather be hot or cold?  HOT!  I'm so tired of being cold all the time.

Sandals with heels or flats?  Flats, because I'm too tall.

Shorts or skirts?  Skirts and dresses are my favorite summer wear.

Sit in the sun or the shade?  The sun, as long as I'm covered in sunscreen.

Water, tea or soda?  See Diet Coke above.  Need to drink more water.

Fave summer fruit, vegetable?  Peaches and zucchini.

Sunrise or sunset?  Sunrise, although I don't see them very often.

Bike ride or walk?  Walk.  I would love to get rid of my car and walk everywhere.

Winery or brewery?  Winery.

Garden or no garden?  They're a pain, but I love picking fresh veggies from the backyard.

Big summer concert or music in the park?  Music in the park.

Fave cookout food?  S'mores!

Dine indoors or patio?  I'd love to be able to eat outside every day.

Fave summer destination?  The beach.

Big theme park or local carnival?  Big theme park - Disney!

Drinks blended or on the rocks?  Blended.

Popsicle flavor of choice?  Cherry.

Hot dog or hamburger?  Umm...neither?  Although a hot dog sounds good right now.

Be sure to check out what my blogging friends had to say, and link up with us below!  Happy Monday!

  1. Love the summer prompts! Chocolate chip mint is my favorite too! Music in the park is the best!

    Doused in Pink

  2. I picked burger but a hot dog does sound good!! So fun and I'm hoping you've had a great week of quality time with your guys!!! xo

    1. We had a great week - Conner was only able to stay for a few days, sadly. But I was happy to have him for a bit!

  3. I really only like swimming in a lake if I can't touch, like jumping off a boat. i don't like rocks and weeds and sinking sand. Yuck.

  4. Hope you had a great trip...murky lakes freak me out too.

  5. I feel the same way about oceans, you can't see the bottom, unless I can, then I am okay with oceans. Yes to Burgers!

    1. I like to bob in the waves where I can see the bottom. And touch it!

  6. I didn't even think of s'mores as a cookout food! Smart girl! I'm always cold too, and I love the beach! I know I'm probably in the minority but I have never lied to diet soda of any kind!

  7. Fun! I am sure if you put the word out zucchinis will make their way to you. I know I could give you several! One of our cucumber starter plants was incorrectly tagged and it is a zucchini so we have 2 plants which is 1 too many for me!

    1. We have been trying to give away zucchini for weeks! How does one plant make so many?

  8. It seems winery is a popular choice over brewery for most! Ha! I don't really like lake water either, I like to be able to see what is in the water or where the bottom is!!


  9. You and me both. Lakes are so gross to me. I've seen enough of the ID network and true crime shit to know what's floating in those lol.

  10. Love, love, love Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream. Haven't had any in forever but now that it's on my radar that will probably change soon! Love the beachy picture!

    1. I hardly ever eat ice cream, but now I want some!

  11. i do love mint chocolate chip but I never buy it because no one else eats it and I can't handle the guilt of eating the whole thing lol
    I forgot about diet coke, I just LOVE it

    1. My husband had me quit buying ice cream because he would eat the whole gallon!

  12. THANK YOU! Finally someone else who'd rather be hot...I was beginning to feel like a freak...LOL Lakes freak me out for the very same reason and ✔️✔️ to zucchini and peaches. Enjoy the remaining days with those boys at home. I feel ya'! XO

  13. It's hard to choose between a good burger and a good hot dog! They have to be good quality, though!
    Peaches and zucchini. YUM.
    I hate being cold a lot so why do I live here??
    And I prefer sunrises because it means the start of a day, instead of a close of one. I rarely see them either.

  14. Ha! Didn't think of S'mores! Great answer.

  15. I would rather it be hot than cold also. I love being hot, it feels so good on my skin. Yes to wineries :)

  16. I would so rather be hot than cold! I am always cold!

    Pumps and Push-Ups
