Speaking Of Thanks… #AskAwayFriday

Can you believe we are only 13 days (as of Friday the 14th) away from Thanksgiving?!?! I mean where has the time gone. It was just summer break and we just finished Trick-Or-Treating. Now I’m not complaining because Thanksgiving and the Holiday Seasons are my favorite time of the year but it certainly does seem as if they come and go way to quickly.

In honor of how close we are to this celebration of Thanks Savanna from Rose Uncaged and I have decided to Speak On Thanks this week. Savanna writes about her OCD and her journey through weightloss surgery and beyond. PS – her middle name is Rose which gives her site name such a powerful meaning that in itself made me want to explore and read a bit more. Savanna offers encouragement and insight and has a great outlook on life. I was also won over by the fact that we seem to share a love for all things pink 🙂


What is #AskAwayFriday? Well…
#AskAwayFriday was created by the amazing Penny from Real Housewife of Caroline County who will again be joining us from time to time, as a way to connect with other bloggers with a great Q & A session of 10 questions and 10 answers, between two bloggers! This is a wonderful opportunity to get to know others while allowing others to get to know you and of course there is also the added bonus of making great friends along the way which is one of the best parts of this online world!

Now to welcome our wonderful #AskAwayFriday Hosts…

So grab our button, follow our amazing Hosts, hop through the great link ups and make some amazing new friends! Got It? Okay now let’s get these Thanksgiving questions going because Savanna had some really great one for me. Oh! Don’t forget to head over to visit Rose Uncaged when you done here to see what I asked her and how she answered!


1. I never knew how much of a blessing the blogging world can be, What are you most Thankful for in regards to blogging?
I don’t think anyone really does. When I first thought of starting my own Blog it was to simply have a place to let out my thoughts and maybe find a bit of feedback. I had no idea I would find the support, community and friendships that I have been blessed to find along the way.
This year I had the chance to actually meet a couple of those amazing ladies face-to-face and everyone who saw us together could not believe it was our first time meeting. We have created such a bond and connection not only through our Blogs but as women, wives and mothers. We found common experiences, like-mindedness and ultimately true friendship all because of a click and a comment.

2. Technology is everywhere, What piece of technology are you most Thankful for?
Yes it is. I am definitely the most Thankful for Apple – LOL…after all how can I pick just one of my Apple family? Yes, I am a tried and true Apple lover and I don’t know where I would be without my iPhone, iPad and MacBook BUT I think if I have to pick just one I would definitely go with the newest addition to our family…

I was beyond excited when I first got it and since then I have found so many amazing Apps and other things to love about it. (Feel free to check out my fandom and watch me rave about my faves)


3. What is your favorite dish to eat at Thanksgiving?
Oh Savanna, how can you keep asking me to narrow things down to 1? I am so not good at this. Let me see. I would have to say the stuffing. Stuffing is something I don’t get to eat year-round because no one else in my family likes it. So when Thanksgiving comes I totally indulge with all of the left-overs (I make sure I make enough to be left-over) and a nice topping of cranberry sauce – wait is that 2? #SorryNotSorry 🙂


4. What is your least favorite thing that people make for Thanksgiving?
I don’t like Ham. I know I’m weird or whatever. I don’t like ham in anyway and especially on Holidays. Still I make one every year because for some strange reason my daughter loves it and would eat one all by herself if I let her. Go figure!


5. Choose one- Mashed Potatoes, Turkey or Stuffing…
See answer 3. LOL – stuffing for sure even though I would love to have Turkey AND Stuffing! There you go again making me choose only 1…tsk tsk Savanna!


6. Do you have a favorite dessert you like to eat for Thanksgiving?
Pies! Pies! Pies! Did I mention I love to eat PIES!?!?


7. Do you have any traditions that you, hubby and your kiddos do for Thanksgiving?
Our main tradition is simply to be sure we are together. We usually try to invite at least one person or family that we know may not have anywhere to go but at this point we consider them family and they are expected to come…I love that.


8. If you could invite one person, from anytime or anywhere to Thanksgiving dinner to Thank them for an impact they made on your life, Who would it be and why?
Wow! This is a tough one. I would have to say my Grandmother. She still lives in New York and has only been able to come down to spend Thanksgiving with us once. My Kiddies loved it and I regret that they have not had the chance to get to know her and spend time with her.
I would take that opportunity to thank her for raising me in spite of things and for standing by me even when I tried to push her away. I think it needs to be said simply because I don’t think I do it often enough.


9. I cooked a Turkey once and failed, I do not host Thanksgiving ever… Do you usually host Thanksgiving, or do you let someone do all that jazz?
I host. I didn’t always. while we were stationed in Hawaii I hosted because we didn’t know anyone and because my Hubby wanted a place for his Soldiers who had no family to be able to go. Once we came back to the mainland, we used to travel to family or visit but my Hubby wanted to start our own traditions and family time so I began to host maybe 3 years ago.


10. Last, but not least- What are you most Thankful for this year?
My Family. I think that is my most thankful thing every year. I grew up floating from house to house because I never felt like I had a true family. Now that I have my Hubby and Kiddies I feel complete and I will forever be Thankful for them and the life we have been blessed with.

      HI! So happy you took the time to come by and visit. Thank you for the addition and I look forward to getting to connect a bit. I know there are a lot of posts to visit but thank you for choosing mine as one of them 🙂

  • irkedmommy

    I love this! What great swap! I am so not a fan of Ham on Thanksgiving. My sister always makes us make one because she doesn't like turkey, but no one else eats it! Hahaha, I love the 2 video clips you chose! Perfection! I love pie too with lots and lots of whipped cream!
    My recent post Ask Away Friday in the Enchanted Wood!

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thanks Echo!! It was so much fun…definitely put me in the Thanksgiving mood even more (if that’s possible…lol)

      Haha! Having your approval on my clips is awesome…sad part: I honestly know the words to that second one…we are major Teen Titan fans! 😀

  • Savanna Rose

    Yay! I love it! The blogging community is awesome, I hope I can meet some fellow bloggers one day- that would be amazing!! It's great that despite growing up feeling like you didn't gave a true family, you have an amazing one now! You are blessed for sure!

    Stuffing is good stuff, I love my mashed potatoes though! No ham?! I love ham, way more than turkey!

    I'm so thankful I got to swap with you, it's about time! Anyone loves pink like I do has to bad-ass 😉

    • MrsTee Post author

      It really is!! The #AskAwayLadies are the best!! I was so happy we had a chance to swap and the Thanksgiving theme was so much fun!!

      Oh I only mentioned stuffing because you gave me 1 choice…I eat both and love every spoonful! 😀 I\’ll take turkey any day…

      Yes! Pink Rocks! 😀

    • MrsTee Post author

      Haha!! That’s cool. Yes both are definitely blessings I am thankful for this year. I usually start the night before and yes…it’s hours but so worth it 🙂 LOL

  • marykatbpcsc45

    I like both mash potatoes and stuffing and eat both. I really over do the carbs thanksgiving day. I like macaroni pie tool. I am so thankful for the new friends that I have made blogging too. I enjoy spending time with my daughter and hubby on Thanksgiving day too. Thanks for sharing.
    My recent post Not Much of A Difference Maker

    • MrsTee Post author

      I love them both too but Savanna had me choose Only One…it was definitely a hard choice. On that day I go into carb overload and I am okay with it…I’m actually looking forward to it 😀

      Thanks so much for coming by Mary!

    • MrsTee Post author

      Haha! I love my little Apple family…I can’t wait to add a Mac to the team 😀

      Oh yes! Pie is so amazing…don’t tell anyone but I already ate an entire Sweet Potato (over a week)…so yummy!!

      Thanks! We would love to have you join in the #AskAwayFriday fun…just let me know and we can set up a date 😀

  • tamaralikecamera

    Well I'll have to come to your house because for me, mashed potatoes are the #1 answer to anything, so more turkey and stuffing for YOU! We can share the pies.
    I really can't believe it's exactly two weeks away. Less now, actually!
    My recent post There is a Third.

    • MrsTee Post author

      Come on over!! I love mashed to but man that Savanna kept asking me to pick only 1…true me though I make room for both on my plate 😀

      Hmm…I don’t share pie but I’ll be sure you have enough too LOL 😉

      Yes! I can’t wait –
