  1. I definitely would not be able to be bossed around in my own kitchen. If I'm the one doing the cooking then there is just no need for someone else to be standing there giving me orders. That just wouldn't fly in my house!
  2. I don't think I could give up sweets either. I've been working on a new diet for a while now and I've cut out a lot of sweets, but I still have ones that I make healthier. I guess I'd call them tricks. I substitute sugar for sweeteners when I can and use almond and coconut flour instead of regular flour.
  3. I've been trying for a few years now to get my son interested in reading. I've bought him a few different books to read and have even taken him to the library multiple times to pick something out, but he never really finds anything. What are some great books for a boy that is going to be turning ten soon?
  4. I've never played games like this, but it sounds a lot like some of the games that my son plays. He loves playing the ones that have farms involved with them. He is always coming to me and showing me what has been done while he's been away.
  5. I remember playing 'Tomb Raider: Legend' and 'Hitman: Blood Money' on PS2 with my husband. We had a lot of fun with those games, but it's so funny to go back and try to play them now because the graphics just look terrible.
  6. I actually have both a laptop and a Surface Pro. I find that it is easier for me to do most of my work on my laptop unless I need to go somewhere. That's where the tablet comes in. Plus, I like to read books on my tablet because it's easier to hold onto.
  7. It's usually in the meat department already cooked, seasoned, and chopped up. It's such a huge time saver for me because I can just pop it in the microwave for a few seconds if I want it warm and put it right on top of the salad.
  8. My favorite vegetable to eat is spinach; I love it cooked and raw. My daughter makes fun of me because she says it looks like I'm eating grass. I think my least favorite vegetable would be beets. I just don't like the earthy taste of those.
  9. I've only done this once and it was with American Horror Story. I had just found out about the show during the third season and I wanted to get caught up on the first two. I can't imagine watching something for 24-hours, though. I think my eyes would not be happy with that decision!
  10. Over the past few weeks, I've seen a lot of talk about making a plan for your fitness expectations in 2017. I've also heard a lot of people saying that you need to pick just one thing to start out with instead of just jumping right in and trying to do it all. Do you think it's better to start out with small changes in your diet first or coming up with an exercise regime first? Which one is easier to start out with and actually stick to?
  11. I only went to two shows this past year. The one I went to was called 'Summerland Tour' and it featured Sugar Ray, Everclear, Lit, and Sponge. The other concert I saw was at a county fair and it was Third Eye Blind. I can't wait to see what this year has in store for potential concerts.
  12. I used to watch this show when it first aired. My favorite thing to do is watch the tryouts. There are some really amazing people on there that have a lot of talent. I know that I wouldn't want to be in the judge's position of picking just a few of these amazing people.
  13. Happy New Year's to you too. I had a great New Year's Eve this year; I went to a friend's house with my husband and kids and celebrated with them. There was a ton of food and we all had a great time. In fact, by the time we got home, it was after 3 in the morning. What did you do for your New Year's celebration?
  14. Mine is caesar salad. It's really easy to make since you can buy ready-made seasoned chicken and tossed salad. Whenever I know I'm going to be busy and I won't have a lot of time to cook, I just throw this together with some Italian bread.
  15. I've read a few anthologies and my favorites are the ones with multiple authors. I find it very interesting to read these short stories by different authors on similar topics. A lot of romance novels do this. The only anthology I've read outside of romance novels is the one by Stephen King called "Different Seasons".
