Then again, I might be thrilled and ready. It’s a little weird to be pre-scheduling posts for the future. Maybe I’m sad to leave Florida, but maybe I’m happy to return to schedules and routines, and most importantly, Athena’s loving arms. Maybe even Dinah and Bella too, because those weird cats seem to really love me, even though I smile at them and say horrible things to them, but in a sweet voice. Maybe that’s what they like. The two-facedness of it all. I can’t pretend to know what they think.
I’m doing another swap with my co-host, Stacey of This Momma’s Ramblings today and you all know how I feel about Stacey. She’s one-of-a-kind, and full of sweet words, and an excellent co-host on this journey we call “Ask Away Friday.”
#AskAwayFriday was created by the amazing Penny from Real Housewife of Caroline County and Amber from Bold Fit Mom, as a way to connect with other bloggers with a great Q & A session of 10 questions and 10 answers, between two bloggers! This is a wonderful opportunity to get to know others while allowing others to get to know you and of course there is also the added bonus of making great friends along the way which is one of the best parts of this online world! Ask me if you want to swap!
We are sad to be losing Amber as one of our amazing co-hosts, as she is working to pursue other business ventures and focusing her attentions on her fitness ventures. We wish her nothing but the best, and hope for her thriving success!
When one door closes, another one opens…and we would like to give a huge Ask Away Friday welcome to a brand new co-host…drum roll please…Welcome Echo from The Mad Mommy! She is both a friend and a fellow blogger. I dig her.

Be sure to read Stacey’s answers to my travel questions HERE. And here are my answers to her questions:
1. Have you ever won a giant sized cuddly toy from a fair? What was it?
I always remember this story of a guy trying to court my sister in high school and he won her the most ridiculously large teddy bear ever at a fair. Once to be funny we put it out the window onto the second story roof of our three story house. It was really big. I don’t know that I’ve ever won anything giant, but I’m quite good at the crane machines. I know they’re mostly rigged but I must have good luck then! I have won Scarlet countless stuffies from a crane. She keeps them all:
2. What do you think the greatest invention has been?
Ahh.. yes. Let’s see. I’m just going through a list in my head… antibiotics, air conditioning, anesthesia (all A’s so far..), airplanes, phones, cars, Internet, electricity! That’s a big one. I’m going to go with the wheel as my #1 answer. And cheese.
3. Do you collect anything?
I’m totally a collector, without being a hoarder. Now that I’m older and I have gotten rid of my Troll doll collection, among others, I’m a bit obsessed with Scarlet’s toys! If she has three of something and I know there’s a fourth, I have to get it for her. It’s a sickness! As for adult things, I collect socks and blogging friends and sundresses, to name a few. And camera lenses!
4. What are your 3 favorite internet sites?
I suppose I’ll see which ones I’m always on! Google.. Facebook.. and blogging sites – WordPress and Bloglovin.
5. Whats the most interesting thing you can see out of your nearest window?
It’s almost night, and I can’t help thinking that the sunsets are getting later, bit by bit. The light is coming.
6. If you could ask your future self one question what would it be?
Did you do it? (and it could be a number of photography, travel, writing, parenting things)
7. Do you know the dance steps to an annoying cheesy pop song?
I used to know the Macarena and the chicken dance and the YMCA! In my heyday.
8. What’s one of your favorite habits you have?
Hmm.. I’m obsessed with my blogging/social media habits. It just sort of happens. I have no plans and then it all just comes out of me. I really love to connect and I may have a funny way of doing it, but hey, it’s fun.
9. Have you ever been on or would you ever go on a cruise? Where did you go or where would you like to go?
No and no. I guess if I had to do it, I’d do one of those Alaskan whale watching cruises. Cassidy and I both agree that we don’t like feeling trapped in any way for a long period of time. I’d want to roam on land eventually. And those things seem to be cesspools of terrible stomach bugs. And I can only eat and drink so much, so most of it would be wasted on me.
10. Have you ever tie dyed your own clothes?
I think I might have done it for a school or Brownies project years ago! I wasn’t very good at it. I love tie-dye, though!
