Friend Makin Monday

So I noticed a bunch of these kind of posts in my reader today and decided to check out what it's about. Visit Amber if you'd like to play along.

1. Do you cook every night?
I cook pretty much every night, just about every weekend we have one meal either at my parent's or the in-laws. But I love to cook and enjoy coming up with menus and new recipes to try.

2. What kind of laundry detergent do you use & why?
I switch it up, currently using All and Downy Simple Pleasures (Vanilla & Lavender), and if I can find it the Tide Simple Pleasures same scent. So good smelling!

3. Do you do laundry every day or loads at a time?
Since our house is on the market I try and do a load every day/every other day depending on what I have.

4. How often do you eat out per week?
Hardly ever, esp. since the hubs has been laid off since May.

5. Where do you usually eat out?
If we do, we hit up the dollar menu at a fast food place, but we also love Chili's, Texas Roadhouse, Friendly's.

6. What is your favorite retail store?

7. What's your favorite thing to drink?
Turkey Hill Iced Tea

8. Do you take vitamins? What kind?
No - I'm horrible at remembering.

9. What percentage of the household chores to you do?

10. Do your children do chores? {Or will they, did they, etc}
Emma cleans up after herself and as she gets older she'll be given more. But she loves helping us with chores.

11. Do you go to church?
Just occasionally.

12. Do you have a housework schedule?
I used to follow the Fly Lady's schedule, but have gotten off of it, the house never gets horrible so that I can have it looking great for a showing in about 30 minutes.

13. Do you keep a working budget?
No. And honestly right now only money going out is bills/groceries/gas.

14. What do you do at night as a family?
Eat dinner, play time, bath, and then we head up to our big bed and all snuggle and watch America's Funniest Home Videos.

15. How do you prepare yourself for a new week?
Now that I'm a full-time stay at home mom, days and weeks don't really start or end, just see what's in store and needs to be done.

16. What do your mornings look like?
Emma comes to wake me up b/w 6-6:30 am, we lay in bed until a little after 7. Get up eat breakfast watch morning tv. Play or do some preschool lessons.

17. What time do you get up in the mornings?
See Above.

18. What time do you go to bed at night?
Normally between 11-1, but now that I'm preggo, I need a good 2+ hour nap during the day to even make it to 11, so whatever time I zonk out.

19. How do you manage all of the paperwork that floods into your household? {bills, school work, magazines, ads, etc}
I def. need a better system for this. I have piles all over and drive the hubs nuts.

20. How do you keep your household organized? {calendars, charts, etc}
In the past months I keep a calendar on the fridge and fill in everything we are doing and also have my personal pocket calendar for my purse. The fridge one is so that the hubs knows what's coming up and he doesn't ask me a gazillion times because he forgets and will ask me that many times, saves both of us some frustration.

Happy Friend Making Monday!

I definitely agree with you that as a stay-at-home mom there is no beginning or ending to our weeks, and I have a love for Target too!

I enjoyed your blog and look forward to reading more!

This is a great list Kat! I think my favorite is #14...that sounds like way too much fun! I love snuggling in bed and watching a movie with my husband too!

God bless!
