{no. 1} If you could be good at any sport, which would it be?
Definitely snow skiing...I love skiing, but I'd love to be able to ski more advanced slopes.

Bachelor Gulch is my favorite place to ski!

{no. 2} How do you like your coffee, or what is your go to at the coffee stand? 
I like my coffee with sugar and milk with a tiny bit of heavy cream.  I also like Bailey's Irish Creamer, too!  I make cappuccinos at home, and I order breve lattes out.

Yummy Nespresso goodness!

{no. 3} What is your favorite TV show, why?
I've answered this question before, and my favorite show is Top Gear (BBC America).  I love cars, and the presenters are really, really hysterical.

{no. 4} If you could get, or give, one thing for Mother's Day what would it be?
I've already gotten part of my Mother's Day present.  Look might see it!  ;P

{no. 5} Do you have any special plans for Mother's Day?  Nothing special....we'll go to church and brunch and then we'll grill out in the evening.

So I know I'm late to the party....the story of my life lately!

Until next time...

    1) If I could Ice Skate it would be such a thrill!
    2)Love a fairly strong brew with heated vanilla soy milk!
    3)Right now my favorite television show is Dancing with the Stars.
    4)The one thing I would give both to my Mother and myself is Good Health!
    5)We have had several family get togethers in the last month, so my siblings will all stop by during the day and have our own time with Mother.

    Have a wonderful Mothers Day!

  2. I too would like to be better at skiing so I wouldn't spend my days by myself. My family all likes to head straight down mountains and I am much more cautious. We didn't not get in any ski trips this year due to my husband's shoulder surgery, but I will be retired when the next ski season comes around and we can ski mid-week with no crowds. Maybe I will have the nerve to try steeper slopes.

    No coffee and no TV.

    And, my present is what I will be doing on MD - flying to San Francisco to visit with my daughter. This is the 4th annual MD in SF.

  3. Ricki Jill, I learned to sky at 50. We went to Beaver Creek, and I've skied Bachelor Gulch. 15 years later, I think my days on the slopes are just going to be memories now. I loved the sport the years we skied.

    Happy Mother's Day to you. ~ Sarah

  4. such a great list, I love these posts, we get to know you better, I couldn't guess the gift, lol,

  5. I always love your lists and fav things! Enjoy this beautiful weekend ahead! Happy Mother's day, my friend!

  6. I do love the new header and layout! :)
    All this talking about Top Gear is making me want to watch it all again! I still giggle when I remember the mini car race through the mall, James Bond style. Ah, the Brits do TV so much better than we do....

  7. Great questions. I would love to be good on the ice skating rink, I think it’s so graceful and it’s been awhile! I love Duncan Doughnuts coffee with cream, no sugar thank you! I don’t watch a lot of TV.....
    Happy Mother’s Day Ricki Jil

  8. I'm clueless when it comes to cars, but I love Top Gear too. Such a fun show. I miss having BBC America.

  9. I have never tried skiing, or snowboarding for that fact. It looks like a lot of work, but a lot of fun!
    My dad drinks Irish cream (Bailey's or Caroline's) in his coffee every morning, it is super good.
    Thanks for linking up with us :D
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
