It was a good week, filled with food and love, as usual. I’m chest-deep into planning the lovely Kristen’s baby shower. I’ve never done something like that before so it’s just a little bit stressy for me. We have a place, we have invitations ready to be addressed and go into the mail on Monday. Now I’m zeroing in on centerpieces for a forest-themed party. It’s darn adorable, like my nephew will be!
And that brings us to the Friday Five! This week’s theme is “What Do You Like?”
1. What do you order to drink when you’re at a fast-food restaurant?
I will usually get a Diet Coke with a slice of lemon, but if I’m at a place with the Coca-Cola Freestyle machines, I add grape flavor to Mello Yello. The result is literally gray but tastes amazing. Amazing to me,that is. Then again, I drink Mountain Dew and Dr. Pepper. I’m not an arbiter of taste.
2. What kind of dressing do you have on your salad when you eat out?
Italian forever! I prefer creamy Italian, but I’ll settle for regular.
3. What do you like at those self-serve frozen yogurt places?
A swirl of cake batter flavor and chocolate flavor, topped with chocolate chips, chocolate sprinkles, hot fudge, and just the slightest pump of butterscotch. I’ve done this before.
4. How do you like your popcorn?
Kettlecorned, if that’s a verb. Or if I pop it myself, I use a little bit of olive oil and sea salt.
5. What kind of shampoo do you use?
For a few years I went sulfate-free, but I felt like my hair never was clean. I know, I know, what I think of as clean hair isn’t really clean hair but what Proctor and Gamble tells me is clean hair. But this is the mindset I’m stuck with. Now I mostly sue Garnier Fructis all in one Shampoo/Conditioner, but only the tiniest amount. I scrub the roots and my scalp, and rely on rinsing to get any excess oil out of the rest of my hair. It’s not bad. However, I got a sample of Fekkai Olive Oil based shampoo and conditioner in my Birchbox last month and have been enjoying it.
Let’s slam the door on this snowy, sleety, sloppy February. By the way, our weather forecast includes 8-12 inches of snow Sunday night into Monday.
Spring can’t arrive soon enough.
