17. Curtains or blinds? Both.

18. How many pillows do you sleep with? I got some new pillows and I heart them! They are just right so I only have to sleep with one. The package said they are good for side sleepers and they are!

20. How often do you vacuum? I vacuum the family/TV room at least twice a week. Sometimes more if needed. The rest of the house is on its own.

21. Standard toothbrush or electric? Standard. And it must be a Mentadent.

27. What retro items are in your home? Our new house has flocked wall paper and red shag carpet. The house we are in now is pretty non-retro. We did have an 8 track player.

40. What style do you decorate in? Decorate?

41. Do you like solid colors in furniture or prints? Solids. Although prints help hide the stains.

  1. I am disturbed by the specificity of your "what's in the fridge?" answer. Please tell me you had to look. Wait, that's worse. Did you drag the laptop over to the fridge, open it up and start listing? Now I'm really troubled.

  2. Naw, I just know food. I bought groceries this weekend and I knew I had one egg left so I bought an 18 pack. I knew I had four chicken breasts because I cooked them when I made the chili. We had Hideaway Sunday lunch. The Boy is in a yogurt phase. I only buy Country Crock. I always have sliced cheese for grilled cheese sandwiches. Jelly for morning toast (apple butter and seedless blackberry). I was just introduced to the juice last week so I picked some up this weekend. The beer is new. It is pumpkin spice and not very good. The Alizé has been around awhile. Milk is always there. I also bought the pickles this weekend. We love the spears and my MIL always has State Fair Brand B&B at her house and now Sprawlmart carries some of them. The Hot is the best.

    You don't even want to ask me what is in my pantry. I can even tell you what shelf it is on. : )
