WEDNESDAY HODGEPODGE FROM FLORIDA

Volume 226
Stop on over to Joyce's blog and join in! 


1. On Saturday July 4th America celebrates her Independence. (If you're not American,  feel free to answer in terms of a national holiday in your own country) What is your favorite thing about the day? Your favorite food on the 4th? Do you fly a flag at your house? Fireworks-yay or nay? Any special plans this year?

Favorite thing about the day is celebrating America! I think I like a group of items like watermelon, potato salad, chips, hamburgers and hot dogs. 

We do not fly a flag but I put small flags outside. I love fireworks. I am not home this year but since we live on a hilltop we see a lot of surrounding communities fireworks. 

I do however always love being up close and personal to them and would love to see the ones presented by Macy's in NYC in person someday! 

2. What's something you recently got for free?

Probably samples with my Sephora or Origins orders. 

3.  The Statue of Liberty, The Liberty Bell, The Washington Monument, or Mount Rushmore...how many on the list have you seen? What is your favorite historical American monument, and why? 

I have only seen Mount Rushmore and the other's are definitely on my bucket list!  I'm going to say my favorite is The Statue of Liberty. 

4. When it comes to the news are you more ostrich (stick my head in the sand) or hog (they have room to take a whole lot in)? How much attention have you given the recent news reports regarding ISIS and the acts of terror they've perpetrated against those who do not share their beliefs or support their cause?

If you know me you know that I do not watch the news ever, however being here with my father this past week I have seen nothing else on the TV during the day! (at a volume of 38) I hate what ISIS is doing and I pray for the families of the victims they are terrorizing. 

5. We're talking plain ice cream...vanilla, chocolate, or strawberry? Choose one.

I choose vanilla. 

6. Share a song you love containing the word 'stars' in the lyrics or title?

One of my favorite movies to watch right now is "The Fault In Our Stars" and I listen to this song  "All Of The Stars" often. I think you will enjoy it. 


7. Describe and/or say goodbye to June with an acrostic.  

Family

Florida sunshine
Awesome times
Meaningful conversations
Idyllic moments
Loving people
Yummy foods

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

So I mentioned that we were going to the Hard Rock Casino and we did. We had a fun time and I won $250. Then when we got back I thought I would go over to the pool and realized that I never packed my swimsuit. 

So yesterday I went to the mall, visited my sister at the Hallmark store she works at and then went hunting for a new swimsuit. When you are overweight swimsuit shopping is not fun! I really didn't want to have to buy a new one but I found one that I liked on sale.
