2. Haven’t had pizza in awhile..

3. Forensic Files on Netflix

4. Bruno Mars ft. Cardi B – Finesse…only because it’s always on the radio.  Every time I hear it, I can’t help but think of the hairspray. yell

5. The Mateguas Island series by Linda Watkins

6. Currently gearing up for the ice storm and possible power outage we could have today so right now, winter gear in my go-to Uggs and always a scarf.  I love scarves and wear them in the summer as well.

7. I don’t really have a favorite..I’m always on the main page.

8. The dresses.  I came across this dress by Lihi Hod the other day and thought it was so beautiful and kind of wished I was getting married again so I could track it down and buy it!

9. The JDRF walk to cure diabetes in June.  Our team..whose moms are all living with the disease, are currently raising funds for diabetes research.  This is my first walk and I’m quite stoked about it.

1. Current food obsession

My home made spicy Kraut. I put it on everything and just steal bites right out of the jar. I’m on my 2nd round of antibiotics for a stupid tooth that won’t cooperate with life, so I’m concerned about my microbiome lol. 

2. Current food you usually like but have gone off of

I’m with PP, I’m totally burnt out on Pizza. *sigh* 

3. Current fave TV show? 

Darling Husband and I are watching Brooklyn 99 and I DIE every time I watch it. So hilarious. I <3 Terry Crews. 

4. What song have you listened to the most this week?

Whitehouse Road” By Tyler Childers. Kinda Outlaw Country/Bluegrass. I love it. 

5. Current book you’re reading or last book you’ve read?

The Virgin Cure by Amy McKay. Reading the series backwards, read Witches of New York first. They are both amazing. 

6. Are you in your spring clothes yet or still in winter gear? What are your ‘go to’ pieces?

I live in skinny jeans and a t-shirt (usually with my company logo on it) flip flops in the summer, hiking boots and a puffy coat in the winter. I’ve transitioned to the flip flops lol. 

7. Which folder have you been most active on recently on the Bee?

I just go to the main page and scroll for drama πŸ˜‰ 

8. Which wedding trend are you liking? 

I know this isn’t a trend, but it’s something that has made me really happy lately… the wedding ads that show up on my computer often feature same sex couples. I love love! 

9. Name something you’re looking forward to. 

D H getting off work in a couple hours and taking an afternoon drive/date up to our favorite hot springs. They are far away, but so magical! I wish I could show the Bees lol. 

10. Did you make New Year’s Resolutions? If so, did you keep any/all of them? Care to share details?

Not really. I like to spend the Solstice thinking about my intentions for the coming season, but that is usually about as far ahead as I think. I just did the same thing on the Equinox…

RobbieAndJuliahaha :  why not…

1. Current food obsession I don’t think I have one at the moment.

2. Current food you usually like but have gone off of Cinnamon Toast Crunch – like it but (slight TMI) I have theorized it’s giving me gas for some reason.  I’m experimenting with that, lol.

3. Current fave TV show? Don’t have TV, so I guess I’ll say Psych since I’m rewatching it on Amazon

4. What song have you listened to the most this week? I don’t listent to songs over and over usually, so I don’t get sick of them.  Most recent playlist has been musicals, though.  I’ll say Seven Brides for Seven Brothers because after listening, I decided I needed to watch it as well.

5. Current book you’re reading or last book you’ve read?  Dead Run – about a semi-local murder/manhunt, though seems like it was mostly supposition.  It was alright, the author adds a lot of unnecessary stuff.

6. Are you in your spring clothes yet or still in winter gear? What are your ‘go to’ pieces? Where I live, my spring/fall/winter gear is all the same. Too cold in the AM, too hot in afternoon.  My go-to right now is wearing my old maternity shirts b/c I’m still ‘fat’ and a zip sweatshirt.  And jeans when I can get away with it.  I’m not a classy gal, I’d rather be comfy.

7. Which folder have you been most active on recently on the Bee? Haven’t noticed.  Maybe relationships?  

8. Which wedding trend are you liking? What’s a trend?  lol.  I have no idea what’s going on in the wedding world.

9. Name something you’re looking forward to. Honeybees (trial 2) are coming today – husband is picking them up right now.  Last year’s honey was absolutely delicious but yellowjackets destroyed our hive.

10. Did you make New Year’s Resolutions? If so, did you keep any/all of them? Care to share details?  Never do, never will.  And I doubt I’d keep them anyway, lol.

1. Current food obsession: “Green sauce and Potatoes” (a traditional German springtime meal) 

2. Current food you usually like but have gone off of: rice and beans. My children still make me cook it though ugh. 

3. Current fave TV show? I am loving “idiot abroad” and “arrested developement”. (forgive me, I am like 15 years behind in TV) 

4. What song have you listened to the most this week? I have no idea. Spotify just does it’s thing in the background.

5. Current book you’re reading or last book you’ve read? I just finished I am plodding though Emma Donohues “the wonder” and I re-read Brontes Jane Eyre. Oh I read “Sometimes I lie” on a recent train trip and it was okay, but the ending a let down.

6. Are you in your spring clothes yet or still in winter gear? What are your ‘go to’ pieces? I am in some Spring gear. I have my ankle skinny jeans and some jaunty striped boat neck shirts because I like that frenchy feeling in the spring and those are cheap and cheerful outfits you can’t mess up. 

7. Which folder have you been most active on recently on the Bee? Always the relationship section! That’s where it’s all happening!

8. Which wedding trend are you liking? Oh goodness. I am totally digging milkmaid crown braid wedding hair with a veil. That look is so romantic and the reason I havn’t cut my hair in years.

9. Name something you’re looking forward to. I can’t wait until the midterm elections and to find out if our offer on a house was accepted. (both worrisome issues but full of hope)

10. Did you make New Year’s Resolutions? If so, did you keep any/all of them? Care to share details? I did make a casual resolution which I also ever so casually failed at.  πŸ˜‰

Shesaidyes :  you and your yummy German food! Omg green sauce and potatoes. It’s a sour cream based sauce? I need to try to make that. I’ve been double roasting potatoes lately so they’re super crispy  I hadn’t thought of a dipping sauce. 

SmilingMrsD :  lucky charms. Ok, I should have admitted that I’ve been eating Whole Foods chocolate and peanut butter cereal straight out of the box. It’s soooo good. And that’s kinda why I said I need to stop eating packaged food… πŸ˜‚

BalletParker :  OMG you need to make Green Sauce! I make it with sour cream and salt and a tiny bit of vineger. It will be a bit runny. Here are the 7 fresh herbs used (only these): parsley, chives, chervil, borage, sorrel, garden cress and salad burnet. We get them ready packed from the super market or market and so you only have to clean them up and run them through the food processor. (don’t worry if you can’t get any salad burnet or borage. If you don’t have sorrel just use a little more vineger to get a wee bit more sour-ness in there) The most important herbs are really the parsley the chives and something cress-y as well as adding enough sourness to give it an edge. Easy peasy! I add chopped boiled egg on top. SOOOOO Yummy!

I live in Hessen so it is our traditional easter /springtime food here. After green sauce season comes white asparagus season. I cant wait! Being a vegetarian in Germany is so easy. Also: you need to visit Germany again soon!
