Monday Mingle 3/28/11

This week’s questions {week of 3/28/11}:
1. What is your favorite song right now?
I LOVE Cee Lo Green's "Forget You."  But I really like the clean version better than the 'real' version.  I'm not typically opposed to swearing really but because its such a huge part of the song, I'm used to the radio edit.
2. How good are you about using coupons at the grocery store?
 I go in spurts.  I go awhile being a coupon queen to now its been several weeks since I've used a single coupon.  But even when I'm couponing it's usually on a special trip for that item(s).  I generally do the bulk of my shopping at Aldi where things are super cheap without coupons.
3. Do you have a Smartphone? If so what are your top 3 games/apps?
YES! I LOVE my smartphone.  I use my Facebook and Twitter app daily and use Pandora regularly for music.  I don't have any apps that aren't free so I don't have to many great games. I have the free version of Angry Birds but it makes me crazy. I don't GET it.  My kids do better at it than I do.

1.  Crunchy or soft tacos?
Soft almost all the time.  I very rarely do a crunchy taco.  

2.  Do you scrapbook?
I have and I still have all the stuff but other than helping my son start a Cub Scout scrapbook last year I haven't done any real scrapbooking in years.  If I had a place to have the stuff out and be able to work on it without and hour of set up and than an hour clean up, I would do more.

3.  Do you take any daily medications?
No.  My kids do but I don't.  

4.  What is your favorite sound?
My kids laughing or playing nicely together!  Besides that music.  
5.  Where were you born?In Kenosha, WI although we lived in IL.  And I haven't moved more than 20 minutes away from there yet.  I actually live about 2 minutes from the house I grew up in.

The Not-So-Secret Confessions of a First Time Mom



  1. Stopping by from 80 mph mom :-)

  2. Yeah...I'm not a big crunchy taco fan either! :)

  3. I like crunchy tacos best actually and I guess I am going to have to listen to that song since it came up twice at least. Happy Monday from another mingler.


  4. Yeah, soft tacos for me, too!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog on the Alexa Hop!

  5. Come via the Alexia Hop.
    Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my post. :)

  6. Too funny! I didn't get Angry Birds either but started playing the free version on my iPad one day just to see if I could understand why everyone loves it... and I got hooked that day. I literally had to finally pry the iPad out of my own hands and walk away because I just kept trying to conquer it!

  7. I don't get Angry Birds either! My husband plays it on my iPod and I just leave it alone HAHA

  8. That's so funny. I LOVE "Forget You", and had no idea there was another version, I had to YouTube it. I'm totally out of the loop... LOL

    I always tell my children that there's no such thing as a bad word, only words used inappropriately, and some words you reserve and use them sparingly so people will take you seriously when you use them.

  9. Haha I love that song too! Check out my post!! -

  10. Thank you for stopping by Mom Always Finds Out on the Alexa hop.

    I love my Smartphone too. I didn't realize how quickly I would become addicted to it. My husband is very into Angry Birds - I just don't get it either!


  11. I love kids laughing so, so, so much!!! It's the absolute best sound!

    I like both kinds of and it depends on the restaurant whether I order soft or crunchy. Full serve restaurants: soft. Taco Bell: crunchy.

  12. I have a confession to make: I only know who Cee Lo is because of Glee. How sad is that?! It's rare I download any new music. I think with the last Amazon free code I bought a Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young song!

  13. Stopping by from the Alexa hop!
