Movie Bits

Posted under Bits & Pieces Fridays 3 Comments

movie ticketThis week, I thought it might be fun to do some movie-related bits. 🙂

  1. Favorite kids movie?
  2. Movie that takes you back to your teen years the second you see it today?
  3. Favorite female movie star?
  4. Favorite male movie star?
  5. What’s a movie (or two) you can watch again and again?

Have a great weekend, everyone! And be on the lookout for three things that stand out to you as being nice/restful/fun so you can tell us about it on Monday.

Apple Bits

Posted under Bits & Pieces Fridays 7 Comments

applesWe’re approaching apple picking time and that immediately makes me think of trips to the orchard as a kid. Back then, you were allowed to climb the trees and my brother and I were quite the monkeys. There’s a picture somewhere of him actually hanging upside down from a branch. I, of course, had no interest in eating them. They were a fruit, and I didn’t eat fruit (much to my mother’s chagrin).

So, in keeping with the time of year, our bits shall reflect apples.

  1. Red or green?
  2. Apple pie or apple cider?
  3. Caramel or straight?
  4. Grocery store or orchard?

Have a great weekend, everyone!

  3. Last person you spoke to on the phone?
  4. You have four hours to do whatever you want (and $ to do it)… what do you do?

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Bits

Posted under Bits & Pieces Fridays 8 Comments

So it’s Bits day and I’m torn between doing surprise-related bits and moving-related bits, so I shall do a little of both. With an explanation, of course.

The surprise portion is because DD # 2 surprised my last night with an outing she planned for us (and paid for) all on her own. We went to one of those paint bars and had a blast!

The moving related portion is because she’s “moving” to college in the morning and, well, you know… I’m having a hard time with this.

  1. Last time you were the recipient of a surprise of any kind? What was it?
  2. Last time you pulled off a surprise for someone else? What was it?
  3. How many different states have you lived in?
  4. Are you an unpack-right-away type, or a live-with-boxes-for-a-while type?

Have a great weekend, everyone!

As I prepare to accompany my oldest as she sets off for her first job, I find myself thinking of job-related bits…

  1. What was your first real job as a teenager?
  2. What was your favorite (not current) job?
  3. What was your least favorite job?
  4. Any fun stories to share from any of the above?

Have a great weekend, everyone!

The girls and I are days way from embarking on a 3 night/4 day mother/daughter(s) trip. After the year we’ve had, it’ll be a nice new memory!

  1. Favorite road-trip food for the car?
  2. Favorite road-trip CD for the car?
  3. Windows down or AC?
  4. Fast food stops or sit down restaurants (while driving)?

Enjoy your weekend, everyone!

Fix It Bits

Posted under Bits & Pieces Fridays 7 Comments

I came home from a quick work trip to find that DD #1 had replaced a cracked screen on her laptop…by herself. While I know she’s smart and pretty tech savvy, it still surprised me that she was able to figure it out.

So today’s bits are fix-it related. I realize the answers may be amusing, but what the heck…

  1. What’s the last thing you fixed?
  2. What’s the biggest thing you’ve ever broken?
  3. What’s something that broke and you had to throw away that you still think about?

Happy weekend!

  2. What’s your favorite city (of the ones you’ve visited)?
  3. Brownstone or apartment building?
  4. Outdoor streetside café or restaurant on the top floor of a high building?

Have a great weekend, everyone!
