would you rather…

in questions answered,random rambles

hello! happy middle of the week. but kinda not, since friday is a holiday, so it’s more like thursday instead of wednesday. hooray! i love short weeks.  i also love surverys! stole this from this girl. wahooooo.


Speak another language or get a higher degree?

another language, for sure! seeing as how i have an associates degree and didn’t even need that for my current career, a higher degree would not come in handy. i do want to learn spanish, though. i feel like that would be so useful in life.

Have a beautiful singing voice or be a fantastic dancer?

well, just ask marshall, i already have a beautiful singing voice! ;) and my dance moves.. well.. they definitely are lacking. there is a reason we didn’t have dancing at our wedding.. aside from the obligatory ones. i think i would rather be a fantastic dancer, though, because the need for busting a move comes up more often than the need to belt it out. plus, i belt it out anyway.

Be a CEO of a huge company or run your own small business?

small bizz.. hands down. huge companies seem too stressful and i don’t love the corporate rat race. small businesses may not be as lucrative, but they are better for the soul. and you have a lot more say as to what goes on. i would love to own a cafe or doggy daycare. hang out with dogs all day? yes, please.

do you spy randy mounting another dog? haha.

Fly like a bird or teleport?

uhhh.. teleport! duh! i have been saying i wish i could teleport for over a decade! why would you want to fly to your destination when you could be there in the blink of an eye? greece, here i come.

Eat only sweet food or only salty food for the rest of your life?

that’s tough. i love both so much. but the sweet isn’t as sweet without the salty. hmm.. ugh.. i don’t want to decide. pass.

Do yoga or lift weights?

seeing how i have done yoga less than 10 times in my life, and i typically lift weights multiple times a week (when not preg), i will go with lift weights. i am no yogi. and, while i love being lazy and pregnant, i do miss weights. it’s the one workout function i actually enjoy.

Be a SUPER fast runner or be SUPER strong?

i feel like being strong would serve a better purpose in life. being a fast runner is great if you are getting chased.. but being strong is so useful! you lift things regularly!

Have 8 kids or no kids?

oh boy. no kids. i could never, ever handle eight. no thank you. i would just be the crazy dog lady for life instead! i mean, i already am…

Have a small, older home with character or design a big brand new home?

big and brand new! i wish i had the money to build a home. maybe someday…

Watch the Today Show or Good Morning America?

neither.. i don’t even think i have ever seen either one, so i couldn’t really tell you the difference. i don’t watch TV much, and never in the morning. and when i DID watch TV in the morning, it was back in the day, and you know it was always tuned to the price is right.

Watch only sports or watch only BRAVO?

i don’t even know what shows are on BRAVO, but i am going to go with that, because i really don’t love watching sports on TV. going to sporting events is fun.. on the TV? not so much. although i have gotten more into football thanks to marshall.

Cook a romantic dinner at home or go to the nicest restaurant in town?

i love both, but i would say going to the restaurant. cooking is fun and all.. but sometimes it’s just nice to have a gourmet meal cooked for you, with no clean up.

Drink beer or wine?

beer all day every day. i am not a big wine drinker. unless it’s sangria…

actually, i am not an anything drinker these days… but, man, i sure wish i could have a beer this summer.

Eat cookies or eat cake?

COOKIES. i ate four yesterday. i have never been huge on cake. probably because i don’t like frosting. the only frosting i can really stand is cream cheese frosting. the rest is just too.. sugary? it tastes like i am straight up taking a bite of table sugar. i dunno. not for me. but cookies? i will eat all the cookies.

Have only brothers or have only sisters?

i am lucky and have one brother and two sisters. i am also lucky that my sister in law is just like a sister. so i would say only brothers, because they are fun to grow up with, and then they get married and you get your sisters!

me and my SIL, lindsay

Go to Africa or Asia?

hmm. neither one has been on the top of my list. but i guess asia because i love allllll the asian food. and we all know it’s all about the food.

Eat sweet potato fries or regular fries?

regular. i do like SP fries, but nothing beats a russet.

Own an SUV or a sports car?

SUV for sure. i have pups. and junk. and live in the mountains.

Have a personal chef or a personal trainer?

personal chef!! if you have a trainer, you still have to put in the work. if you have a chef, you can kick back and have delicious meals made for you all day every day.

Sleep for 9 hours every night but no coffee, or sleep for 6 hours a night and have coffee?

six hours and coffee. that’s what i already do.. it’s not THAT bad.

Read a book or watch a movie?

movie. i am sometimes too impatient for books.

Live on the east coast or west coast?

the west coast is the best coast.

Have your toenails painted or your fingernails painted?

toenails! i never have naked toenails, but my fingernails are often unpainted.

Go to the beach or the mountains?

i live in the mountains, so it’s a luxury to go to the beach. can we go today? please?

I love love love the beach!! Take me there now!

Erica July 2, 2014 at 7:26 pm

Amen to personal chef! 8 kids? Gah! Who picks 8 kids?? Id be insane. I guess id rather have salty than sweet.

Amy July 2, 2014 at 7:32 pm

I am going to a housewarming party with a view of fireworks from the front yard. No crowds…winning!

You make an excellent point about the sweet not being sweet without the salty. Plus, you would likely feel like crap all the time if you only ate sweet stuff.

Oh my gosh, this is awesome. I am totally stealing.

p.s. your abs in that swimsuit photo? unreal. girl, that’s impressive!

And amen to personal chef. That and a personal masseuse. Money’s not an issue in these surveys, right? ;)

trust me, you’re gonna wanna go to cape town africa! it’s amazing. And i’ll definitely be a crazy dog lady with you. No prob!

Sam @ Better With Sprinkles July 3, 2014 at 6:10 am

I’d have to go with sweet…my sweet tooth is insane. And since I’m up in Canada…the fourth will just be a regular Friday for me ;-)

Emily @ Fit as a Mother... July 3, 2014 at 6:21 am

I would totally take sweet forever and always!!

Kim F July 3, 2014 at 6:40 am

This made me laugh especially your answer for picking the chef over the trainer :) :) :) We are taking the dogs hiking for the 4th and relaxing after that! Enjoy your weekend!

Carbzilla July 3, 2014 at 6:58 am

Hi sweetie, we’re off on a glamping trip to the San Juan Islands. I’m both proud and embarrassed over how I couldn’t have pulled it together without Pinterest. Have a great one!

Stephanie @ My Freckled Life July 3, 2014 at 7:26 am

Man, that sweet or salty question is probably the toughest of the bunch! I just dont know!!! If there was a gun to my head and this was the one answer that could save me (why that would ever happen in real life, I dont know), I would say sweet. Because I feel like I can pretend that some foods are salty even when their not (like pickles), but there is just nothing that replaces a sugar-laden treat every once and awhile.

Tamara July 3, 2014 at 8:17 am

We’re going to a family BBQ! Enjoy your holiday weekend.

It’d be tough… but I think I’d go salty if I really HAD to choose! Super happy I don’t. ;) xo

Katie @ Talk Less, Say More July 3, 2014 at 8:47 am

YAY! Aren’t these surveys fun? :)

I may have to change my answers for home cooked vs eating out…I forgot about the clean-up and I HATE dishes! lol…

Still trying to figure out my plans for the weekend, but there’s no work tomorrow, a long run Sunday, parade & fireworks Sunday (yes my town is weird) and there’s discussion for some festival Saturday night. Hopefully it will be a fun weekend! :)

Angie @ Pint of Goals July 3, 2014 at 9:15 am

I’m going up to my cottage this afternoon for a long weekend. The weather is looking fantastic!
Sweet all the way! I love chocolate, ice cream, and cookies. I don’t care for sugary candy (Starburst, Skittles, etc.) much, though.
Have a nice weekend!
