We Want to Know Wednesday #2

Wednesday, June 22, 2011


It is time for We Want to Know Wednesday @ Dandelion Wishes.

Today's questions are provided by Seriously Shawn.

{1} What is the best or worst pick up line you have ever been given?

It really wasn't a line, but it was an action.  The first time I met Mr. Art @ Home at a fraternity/sorority swap, he bought me a virgin strawberry daiquiri with whipped cream on it. The whipped cream was three times higher than the cup it was in, and I could see Mr. Art @ Home navigating through the crowd without spilling the whipped topping on the drink.  He looked like something out of a Dr. Seuss cartoon.  It really was funny, and obviously, he got my attention!

{2} What is your most and least favorite day of the week?

Favorite: Sundays.  I love our little outdoor church at Lake Martin.  It sets the tone for the rest of my week which is always positive!

Least Favorite: Mondays.  It is always difficult to get back into a routine after the weekend!

{3} How many hours of sleep do you require each night?

Eight, but I rarely get it.  I usually only get about seven hours of sleep.

{4} Is there a song that takes you back in time? What song is it & what's the memory attached?

There are many songs that take me back in time.  It would be very hard to pick just one, but I can remember that my sorority sisters and I really liked listening to Modern English and Squeeze, and we drove to Atlanta for a Squeeze concert once.  I guess every time I hear "Tempted" I think of college, road trips, and my sorority sisters.

Watch the video here.

{5} What is your biggest guilty pleasure?


Until next time...

  1. Hello Ricki! It was a cute and funny experience with Mr. Art @ Home and I hate Mondays too.Its hard to regain momentum after a relaxing weekend break.

    Have a great day ahead! :)

  2. LOL. I bet that's a LOT of peoples' guilty pleasure that they don't normally admit. ;)

  3. Modern English and Squeeze!! Ahh. That takes me back too!!!
    Love your whole list!!

  4. I love Squeeze. Whenever my hubby plays all those old songs it really takes me back. Cute story about the drink and all the whipped cream. He was trying so hard I am sure to look cool.

  5. I love 8 hours of sleep, but insomnia often see to it that I don't get 8 hours.

  6. Those girls on Jerseylicious scare me! I would never go to hairdresser with nails like that... or that orange!!

  7. Jerseylicious. I agree with a previous commenter, they scare me!!

    Just stopping by from the hop :)

  8. The song that takes me back in time is "What a Wonderful World." It reminds me of my dad, and when he passed away, I would hear it all of the time. One day, we visited San Diego, and while shopping in old town, there was a man sitting on the side of the street singing and playing his guitar. Shortly after we passed him, he started to sing "What a Wonderful World." Have a beautiful day.

  9. This was a great post. I like the questions and answers because it lets us get to know you better!!

  10. Cute post! First thing that comes to my mind is the song "Life is a Highway". Always came on every Prom video! LOL

  11. Jerseylicious! I never would have never pegged you as watching that!! thank you for your comment, you are so right about Divine judgement for Casey!


  12. LOL...You are so warped!! Jerseylicious! I never would have known that!....**still giggling**....anyway, my favorite day of the week is Tuesday. Monday is my cleaning day. My least favorite is Saturday. For me, everything is off and I actually feel guilty if I go to the studio!

  13. how funny! I would not admit my guilty pleasure, although, I have more than one! My least favorite day is Thursday, just because.

  14. I never would have pegged you for a Jerseylicious gal!

    And also, working on those rings (I'm making two, for choices' sake), and will email you as soon as they're ready....
