One of those random questions things someone sent me

What kind of soap is in your shower right now? Arbonne FYI Body Wash

Do you have any watermelon in your refrigerator? No - I wish, that means it would be summer!

What would you change about your living room? I would move it to Charleston, SC. We've been in this area for 8 years and in this house for 7 - the longest I have ever lived in one house. I am ready to move!

Are the dishes in your dishwasher clean or dirty? Washing as we speak - as I type.

What is in your fridge? Tons of milk, chocolate chip cookie dough . . . other stuff, but that's all that really matters.

White or wheat bread?Wheat

What is on top of your refrigerator? Nothing

What color or design is on your shower curtain? We don't have shower curtains in the master bath - we have glass doors. The girls' bath has a sage green one.

How many plants are in your home? one - a beautiful peace plant that I have had since 2000.

Is your bed made right now? Seriously? . . . Seriously?

Comet or Soft Scrub? Neither - I forgot what that stuff is called - the lavender smelling non-toxic stuff in the purple canister. Can I just say that this fact illustrates how cleaning is so my life. Yeah.

Is your closet organized? For the most part.

Can you describe your flashlight? Yes, it's heavy and black.

Do you drink out of glass or plastic most of the time at home? Glass only - no plastic. The girls use aluminum sigg bottles or clean canteens. Bean uses these beautiful enamel cups from Nova Natural with the matching dishes and bowls. I digress.

Do you have iced tea made in a pitcher right now? Of course!

If you have a garage, is it cluttered? Not really. We can fit both cars in there.

Curtains or blinds? Both

How many pillows do you sleep with? Three.

Do you sleep with any lights on at night? Yes, two nightlights so I can see little love bug in her baby bed beside our bed.

How often do you vacuum? Only when necessary.

Standard toothbrush or electric? Standard

What color is your toothbrush? Green

Do you have a welcome mat on your front porch? Yes.

What is in your oven right now? Nothing. Hmmm - I should break out that chocolate chip cookie dough in the fridge. It's already past 9am (not that that hasn't stopped me before.)

Is there anything under your bed? yeah, I think so.

Chore you hate doing the most? Cleaning out the fridge and cleaning bath tubs.

What retro items are in your home? Lots - lots of furniture that belonged to my great grandmother - some of her beautiful hats from the 40's and 50's, my girls have clothes I wore in the 70's. Retro is our friend.

Do you have a separate room that you use as an office? My husband does - it's the most useless room in the house.

How many mirrors are in your home? 11 - one in each of the 4 bathrooms, one in each of the 5 bedrooms, one in the playroom and a small one in the foyer.

What color are your walls? Neutrals, mostly - browns, sagey- greens, then the girls have purple and pink respectively. Oh - and the playroom is a soft yellow.

What does your home smell like right now? Wish it smelled like cookies baking in my oven.

Favorite candle scent? yuk. I can't stand scented stuff. I only burn beeswax candles and I do that rarely.

What kind of pickles (if any) are in your refrigerator right now? Claussen - the cold crunchy ones. YUM!!

What color is your favorite Bible? Red. It came from the bookstore of the church my great grandfather pastored for decades, beginning (I think) in the 40's. I could add that to the retro list.

Ever been on your roof? Nope. I've seen it from the street, though. ;P

Do you own a stereo? No, actually. We can play music cd's on the dvd player.

How many TVs do you have? Two. One in the living room and one in my husband's gym.

How many house phones?3 - one upstairs, one on the main floor and one in the finished basement.

Do you have a housekeeper? No

What style do you decorate in? I like mission style - arts and crafts movement. Simple, uncluttered, natural woods and lots of bookcases filled with books.

Do you like solid colors or prints in furniture? Solids

Is there a smoke detector in your home? Yes. Several.

In case of fire, what are the items in your house which you’d grab if you only could make one quick trip? The children and my two external hard drives - they hold every picture of the girls I've ever taken.

Oooo, I might have to steal this and do it on my school blog. I've been so remiss in that blog anyway--might as well put up something fun LOL

Go make cookies. It's a moral imperative.
