TBB Asks - Back To School Edition

It's the first Monday of the month, so time for a little Q and A with The Blended Blog.  I just got back into town after visiting college boy and cheering on our Cougs for the first WSU football game of the season.  As usual, I'm behind, so I'm going to pick and choose a few questions.  Be sure to head to The Blended Blog to link up your posts, and mark your calendar for October 2nd when we'll be asking and answering everything Fall!

Love school or hate it?  I loved everything about school, and the first day was one of my favorite days of the year.  If I could have gotten away with it, I would have kept going. Sadly, those student loans weren't going to pay for themselves.

School uniform or no?  Until 5th grade I went to Catholic School, so we wore a uniform everyday.  When we moved to Washington my parents put us in public school, and I loved having "free dress day" everyday!

Eat school lunch or pack lunch?  My mom packed our lunch until middle school, and then she went back to work and we were on our own.  I enjoyed buying school lunch until the day someone found a tiny slug in the salad bar. After that, it was sack lunch PB & J for me!

Favorite thing to do at recess?  Remember penny drops from the monkey bars?  Well, I could never do those.  Or a cartwheel.  But I enjoyed hanging out with my friends, watching them and talking.

Favorite subject in school?  English and creative writing.  Essays in those little blue exam books made me so happy.

Least favorite?  Hmm...I don't think I had one.  Honestly, I loved it all.

Class ring or no?  I had a letterman's jacket, but no ring.

Attend high school reunions?  Yep.  My husband and I graduated from the same high school and still live close by, so we've gone to all the reunions.  Our 30th a few years ago was the most fun, because everyone was relaxed and happy to see each other.

We hope you'll join us each Monday for some fun September link ups.  Have a great week!


  1. I loved reading your answers..the essay blue books, oh how I lOVED them too!! Didn't even think to add in more college stuff! I bet you were the cutest eager and awesome student!! Enjoy your day!!

  2. Oh gosh, I wouldn't have been eating the school lunches wither if I would have found that! Gross!! Reminds me of the cafeteria at my old job! LOL! I bet it was nice to be relieved of the uniform, especially as you got older. My kids are in uniforms now and don't mind them, but I bet as they get older they will!


  3. I think that it the sweetest thing that you and G go to reunions together.

  4. I wish my kids could have PBJ for lunches...they are missing out.

  5. I'm totally borrowing this! Love it.
    As for the slug, maybe it was organic salad? Made me giggle!
    I always brought home lunch until senior year or pizza Friday.

  6. I loved school too! Since my Dad owned restaurants I was really spoiled and had him bring me home a half sandwich every night so I could have it for school the next day. Can you imagine I could not eat a whole sandwich even in Hi School!

  7. I think I packed a pb&j everyday too. So fun that you have gone to all of your reunions!

  8. Ugh, after you salad bar, I don't think I can eat one every again...I had an experience with school milk and could never drink school milk again, lol! Fun you can go to the reunions, currently we're planning our 20th and I'm not sure how well it's going.

  9. You're an amazing content, Thank you for sharing this excellent article.
