Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. Do you and your family enjoy camping? What do you enjoy most/like the least when it comes to family camping? When was the last time you camped?

We are not campers!

2. Did you attend a summer camp when you were a kid? Is that a happy or not so happy memory?

No only sleep away camp I ever went to was Girl Scout Camp. I have really fond memories of  going there. 

3. Over the course of your life, what have you probably spent more time pondering than anything else?

Probably the future and what it holds. 

4. Which of the seven natural wonders of the world would you most like to see? There are many lists of 'wonders' but this is the standard naturalwonder list-Mount Everest, The Great Barrier Reef, The Grand Canyon, Victoria Falls, The Harbor of Rio de Janerio, Paricutan Volcano and The Northern Lights.

I would love to see the Great Barrier Reef....I've been to Grand Canyon and its amazing. My bucket list of must see's is long now I have a few more to add. 

5. What was your first real job?

"real" as in not during High School?? I would have to say Territory Manager for a Food Broker. 

6. Lemonade or Sweet tea...which do you prefer on a hot summer day?

Sweet Tea

7. What is something that always brings a smile to your face?

My daughter 

8. Insert your own random thought here.

How do you say Peonies?
I say it like....Pee o knees 
But I also hear people say  Pee a knees 
 I've been known to say many things wrong....or my own way! Is this another word I need to add to my list?

My hubs worked as a rep for a food broker too when he first got out of college.

I think I say pe-a-nees but p-o-nees sounds right too...I think you're safe : )

Mt. Everest is mine. It just amazes me.

Lemonade, My children love camping and I do it for them, went to summer camp once ending up getting burnt on my hand by a girl who was caught her marshmellow on fire. Never went to camp again after that.

I've been to the Grand Canyon also and the thought of it still takes my breath away. I don't think anyone can truly appreciate it unless you stand there on the edge and try and comprehend the sheer size of it.

PS - I say pee a knees

I say pee-oh-kneez and yours are lovely.

Bobbi said...

You're so my people! I don't camp either, I prefer sweet tea and I want to go see the Great Barrier Reef too!

Mama Zen said...

I've never known how to say that (peonies) either!

Cathee said...

I say pee a knees. I have one that is finally blooming! They are about 3 weeks late. Yours looks beautiful!

Matty said...

I'm not a camper either. The closest thing I've ever done is to sleep out in the back yard.

My favorite drink of all time is sweet tea.

Joyce said...

Another great post. I'm curious, what is the proper way of saying Peonies? xo

It's pee-o-knees :)

Some of our favorite family memories involve camping. However, I'm pretty sure it's too late to get a teenager enamored with it. I think my own kids' favorite part of camping was meeting other kids and throwing rocks/sticks around :)
