Now on to the amazing questions Julie asked me and of course my answers…


#AskAwayFriday With Julie From Velvet-Roase | MrsTeeLoveLifeLaughter.com

1. What is your favorite season and why?

Fall of course! I’m a summer baby with a fall heart. I love the weather (not too cold), the fashion (scarves, boots and sweaters) and most of all the food!


2. What is your favorite activity to do with your children?

Simply being together. We love going to local actives like story time, museum events and such but my all time favorite thing is when we have our Double Couch Slumber Parties. We push our couches together and the whole family has a slumber party with movies, popcorn and family time.

3. Does your family have any holiday traditions, or are there any traditions you want to start?

Thanksgiving – we always have a big family meal with all the fixins’

Christmas – this is our favorite and most important family holiday. This is the one where we can all actually be together thanks to school breaks. Trust me we take full advantage of every day. We hang out, cook, eat, go to movies and we always Build-A-Bear to remember the year. I am already counting the day til’ this bit of family memories and moments can start.


4. If you were to take over someone’s life for a day (Quantum Leap style), who would it be and why?

I used to love love Quantum Leap! This is such a fun question. Okay now let me think…

Okay I’m going to go totally shallow and dream day here. I would love to take over the life of Tia Mowry. I have always love her and grew up with her and her sister. When they started their most recent reality show I realized that we are alike in so many ways. Not in a creepy stalker kinda way but just like I can see a lot of personality similarities. I have also always wanted to be a twin…LOL so yeah, Tia Mowry.

5. Do you watch movies multiple times (not including children’s movies)? If so, what movie have you watched over and over?

Yes, even though most of them are children’s movies thanks to my Kiddies…LOL. I do love Sparkle (I’m watching it right now), DreamGirls, The Wedding Planner, Bourne Identity, Supremacy and Legacy – just to name a few.

6. Tell us about your favorite TV show.

Could your timing be any better? My favorite TV Show is having it’s Season Premier TONIGHT – #TGIT – Scandal! I am obsessed and I am totally okay with that. I love the show, the actors and of course the creator. I think this show takes plot twists to an entirely new level and I can’t wait to see where it’s headed next.

7. What is your most hated household chore?

L-A-U-N-D-R-Y. It is the bane of my existence. I despise it with every fiber of my being. Does that qualify as hate? Yes. I know the machine does all the work. It’s the after that makes me cringe, run and hide the basket for as long as possible. The folding. Oh how I hate it. That and the fact that my laundry baskets never seem to stay empty for more than a few hours. Yes, hours not even a day!



8. What is your favorite movie based on a book? Did you read that book?

Oooh! This is a fun one. I would have to say my favorite book turned movie would have to be nearly any of Nicholas Sparks novels. They always translate well on screen and most times stick pretty close to the original book. I have read each of the books before seeing the movies. I actually try to do that with any movie based on a book.

9. If someone visits your town, what tourist destination do you tell them they must see?

I would definitely need to take them a bit outside my town to Durham or Raleigh. I would love if it was around the time of the County Fair because I know they would have fun, see a bit of NC and definitely eat to their heart’s content. I mean when people visit you gotta feed them, right? 🙂

10. Share one thing you learned about yourself from blogging.

Being me is okay. I used to be that teenager who tried to fit in with everyone. I was good at it too. I could become whatever I needed to be to fit in with whoever was around. As I grew up, matured and started to actually like who I really was I realized that until I could introduce someone to ME then it wasn’t worth it.

MrsTeeLoveLifeLaughter has help me do that more than anything else I have pursued. I am what I write and those who are meant to connect with it will. Those who won’t – won’t and that’s okay.

Thanks so much to my new friend Julie for being a part of this week’s #AskAwayFriday! It was so much fun getting to know her a bit better and giving her a glimpse of me as well. Be sure to head over and visit Julie and both her sites because you will not be disappointed.

    So much fun today! Build a Bear is a nice holiday tradition. And you have gotten me excited for the rest of the year. I really.. can't stand winter, but hey, we still have a few months until it hits.
    Is Tia the one with the son? Or do they both have sons now??

    • MrsTee Post author

      It really was! I have 2 bears and my Kiddies each have 4 (we went twice one year…lol) I can\’t wait for this year 🙂 They both have son\’s now but Tia\’s is older…

  • becominneurotic

    I wanted to be Tia because we shared our name. And I thought it would be cool to have a long, lost twin. And I currently have a load of laundry waiting to be folded…le sigh.
    I'm also super pumped for fall. I'm looking forward to the coziness of it 🙂
    I hope you have a great weekend, Tiffany!

    • MrsTee Post author

      Oh wow, that’s right! Cool. I always wanted to be a twin. It seems so cool to have someone who has been with you from moment one. Have an awesome weekend Tia 😀

  • FabEllis

    Love this! I laughed because we had several things in common. I love fall so much! Plus, laundry is THE worst! I hate it.

      Haha! Are you my twin? LOL…I can be a bit weird and odd at times but still lovable 😉 I have a basket waiting to be folded right now :/

  • @tiffanykhyla

    I love your Christmas tradition of going to Build-A-Bear! That sounds like an amazing tradition. Oh, and I totally watch movies multiple times too. I can't tell you how many times I've seen all the Harry Potter movies, Mean Girls, Bridesmaids, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, and so many others! I love movies!

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thanks Tiffany! It is so much fun and I think I love it just as much as my Kiddies do…LOL Ooooh I totally forgot Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants…I LOVE that movie!

    • MrsTee Post author

      Slumber parties are the best! I love them…I never watched The Good Wife…maybe I will look it up for my next NetFlix binge… 😀

    • MrsTee Post author

      They are SOOOO much fun! Sometime we do it an entire weekend. Just movie binge and have pizza…the kiddies love it! Let me know if you try it 😀

  • Julie S.

    Ooh great answers! Glad you enjoyed my questions 🙂 What happened to your answer to #9? Looks like it got cut off. I like your answer to the quantum leap question – I would want to be the wife of my celeb crush, yep, nothing wrong with that kind of answer 😉 Thanks for the exchange this week!
    My recent post #AskAwayFriday – my first post!

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thanks Julie! You had some really fun questions. I don’t know what happened but it’s there now…I’d go to the County Fair- food & fun…what’s better? 😀 Haha…definitely nothing wrong with that answer. Happy to have you join in the #AskAwayFriday fun!

  • Bernadyn

    I would love a twin, too, and I've always liked Tia Mowry! Your Christmas tree is so pretty, that's one of my favorite parts of the holidays is getting to decorate the house. Same here, The Wedding Planner is a movie I can watch over and over again. I need to read more Nicholas Sparks books, I've only read one but I love all the movies!

    • MrsTee Post author

      HI Bernadyn! I wanted to have twins too but that just didn\’t happen even though my Girlies are so close in age a lot of people think they\’re twins…LOL Thank you, we love Christmas and I definitely go all out on the tree. I add a unique ornament every year. His books are really great, I haven\’t read one in a while though.

    • MrsTee Post author

      Oh wow! When\’s your birthday? That\’s so fun. Yes, we share our hatred for laundry…I have a load waiting for me now 🙁

  • ssgannett

    Oh girl, the double couch slumber parties sound like so much fun! Back in the day, when it was just my oldest son and I, we would have camp out nights on the front room floor watching movies and just being together! I absolutely love Quantum Leap! That was such a great show. Your Build A Bear tradition sounds awesome. I have actually never been to one of the stores, but I have ordered online and their bears are just so cute! I also love the Bourne movies! Matt Damon actually filmed the movie "The Informant" in the town that I live in, and he came to the tv station that I worked at, but I did not get to see him…sad face! LOL! Have a great weekend!

    • MrsTee Post author

      They are so much fun and we love having them, well everyone but maybe my Hubby…somehow he always ends up on the floor 😀 Yes, we love Build-A-Bear and you definitely need to have the in-store experience. It\’s so much fun I even made one without the Kiddies just for me …lol Wow! Matt Damon? That\’s awesome…
