{FAQ 7} The Perfect Date and the Forgetful Environmentalist

The gorgeous (and funny!) Sarahbelle asks: okay first, please tell me that when you wrote the title, you were singing like TI.. 'you can ask whatever you like'. no? oh. okay. me neither then..moving onto QUESTIONS:1. if you could re-live one day from the past year, which would it be?

First, YES! That's totally what I was singing. But, okay, I knew this version before I knew the T.I. version. I am utterly and pathetically un-hip, okay?

So many good days this past year! I'd re-live the day we went to Cedar Point. Tons of my extended family came, Tim came, and it was just good times. Plus: It was warm enough to wear a tank top. And these days, that's all I need for a good day. Sigh.

2. describe your idea of the perfect date with your hubby :)

Typical "date" involves going out to dinner (Because we both love food. He usually lets me pick. I love him.), a movie at home, and a board game (which may or may not end up in a squabble because we both are shameless competitive. Don't play Scrabble with me, that's all I'm saying).

Ideal date? Going somewhere exotic and tropical. Preferably, Costa Rica. Because I can dream, right?

Jane wants to know: What's your favorite "green" tip? What's the one green thing you do that's hardest to remember and/or do consistently?

I'm going to cop-out and direct you to this post for your first question.

For a long, long time - I always left my reusable grocery bags at home. Always. Without fail. I eventually got better, and it's a habit now. Yay!

Currently, I've been prone to forgetting the produce bags that I reuse. {Although, if you want to talk about what "green" thing I am most lazy about, or something like that - I would be hard pressed to choose just one. Sadly. Like, I know that I shouldn't be insanely lazy and just TAKE my paper downstairs to recycle instead of throwing it out in the trashcan upstairs but sometimes I AM LAZY. There. I said it.}

I'm jetting off to Ithaca, New York this weekend to visit a dear friend who recently moved there to start a PhD program at Cornell. (Do you think of Andy Bernard when you hear Cornell? Because I do. That is sad for Cornell, don't you think?)

Have a wonderful weekend, and I'll see on you on Inauguration Day. Let's hope it's, like, 50 degrees in Cleveland by then. (What? Is that unrealistic?)

PS: Stop by tomorrow for my unveiling of my List. Yes. A List. Get excited.


  1. I love Cedar Point. LOVE IT. That is all. :)

  2. Lol - when I hear Cornell that's all I can think of too. Singing metro sexual Andy Bernards ;) Cedar Point is so fun, it's Chris' favorite place in the world! When I first met him, that's where we spent the weekend <3

  3. Enjoy the trip! And yes, I do think of Andy!

  4. aw, have fun on your trip!

    i am constantly forgetting to bring my grocery sacks with me, so i started leaving spares in my car. :)


  5. Oh, yeah, the bags--I was fascinated when a customer at the bookstore pulled a tiny zippered pouch out of her pocket, and out of the pouch came a reusable bag that was all folded up, but opened to a pretty good size! That looked neat.

    Have a nice trip. . . stay warm!

  6. I love having dinner/board game dates. So fun!

    I hope you have a great trip. :)

  7. Bagnesia (a person's forgetfulness to grab their reusable bags) is something that more and more people are struggling with. The good thing is that it means we're trying to be better about taking our reusable bags! There is a new company called Bagnesia that has a great compact reusable bag and also a reminder kit that goes with it. With their great products to help remember your bags, you'll never forget them again. They also sell produce bags on their site as well. Check it out- you'll be glad you did!

  8. Hope you had/are having a fantastic trip!

  9. Ahaha, I LOVE the "You Can Vote However You Like" - its WAY TOO CUTE!

    and boardgames? the best! i love that they'd be included in your perfect date.

    i really have to be better at remembering my reusable grocery bags. i always think keeping them in my car is a great idea, but then we'll end up taking ju's car to go get the groceries. or i'll keep them in my purse, and end up just taking my debit card. MUST. FIX.

  10. Oh my god! I LOVE Ithaca. I went to IC. It's like my favorite place in the whole wide world. Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

  11. I ALWAYS think of Andy Bernard when I hear Cornell. haha! I hope you had a great trip this weekend!
