This week Sonya from Saving Everyday With Sonya K came up with the amazing idea to collaborate on a few #AskAwayFriday questions along with Jill from The Singapore Writing Homemaker, Christy from Uplifting Families and Me – Tiffany from MrsTeeLoveLifeLaughter.
1. What song most reminds you of when you first met your spouse?
2. Taylor Swift’s latest album is titled 1989. What do you remember about life in 1989?
3. Share one of you favorite pictures from the past.
1 – Definitely INSERT SONG CLIP
2 – 1989? Not much. Is that bad? I was 11 that year and would have been in the 5th grade I think. I was taking karate and piano lessons and hating them both. My Grandmother insisted that I stay active outside of school and those were the options she gave me. I eventually fell in love with Karate but had to quit due to a ‘below the belt’ incident (If you wanna know all about that – let’s swap sometime! 🙂 )
3 – Okay. I don’t have picture that far back in the past but here is one from 2012…you’d think from the pic I could actually ride…LOL
1. Name two home cooked dishes which you prepare most often for your family.
2. Did you and your husband plan when to start a family? If so, give us two criteria for having your first baby. If not, tell us two reasons why not.
3. Where is your last hangout with your husband?
1 – Baked Ziti and Chicken Parm. These are the two dishes that EVERYone will eat and trust me when you find a dish like that in a family of 8 you stick with them.
2 – Since we were pretty much a ready-made team when we met with his 2 sons and mine the decision was really whether we wanted a large family. We both grew up in large families. His immediate since he is one of 14 kids and mine more extended with my father being 1 of 14. So we both knew that we wanted to have a large family it was just a matter of when we would start.
We ended up waiting about 3 years which was when I had my oldest daughter.
3 – Our last hangout was last weekend and we went to a movie and grabbed a quick bite to eat. I was so much fun. I have learned in 10 years of marriage and with a Team of Kiddies that when there is a chance for a date – day or night to grab it while I can.
1. What was your favorite place to hang out when you were in high school?
2. What was your favorite place to go to lunch in high school?
3. Did you work during high school? If so, what did you do?
1 – See now the way my Grandmother was – even in High School – there was no hanging out. I went to school, work and church most times in that order. The most I did was jump in a car with all my cousins and go to different concerts and stuff put on my local churches. We were all art of a local recording youth choir and we also got to do a lot of traveling with them. I loved it. It was like my only outlet and I made a lot of friends that I have to this day.
2 – I went to an all girl Catholic High School and we were not allowed to leave campus for lunch. That said my school was also located in the midst of Yonkers, NY on a street that had nearly every type of food you could want. So after school of if I had a free period I may have snuck out here and there for a slice, some Chinese food or even a great deli sandwich.
3 – Yes. My Grandmother was a firm believer in earning your own money and working. She took me to get my working papers on the first business day after my 13th Birthday. She even secured my first job at a local Drug Store chain. I worked there for nearly 6 years.
One of My Questions:
Name one of your favorite TV Shows from the 90s.
See if you can guess…
“In West Philadephia born and raised
On the playground is where I spent most of my days
Chillin’ out maxin’ relaxin’ all cool while….”
**Yup! I wrote that from memory…LOL
Wow! I had a lot of fun putting a bit of a Flashback Friday twist to this week’s #AskAwayFriday! Be sure to head over and visit Sonya, Jill and Christy to see what my questions were and how they answered the other ones too!! Pictures were a must so you’ll have some fun looking at their Flashback photos too 🙂
