1. Do you like chili? Red or white? Beans or no beans? Spice or no spice? Toppings?
Yes I like chili. Actually I now make a black bean chili that we love. (our daughter doesn't eat meat) I can't say it's real spicy. We like cheese and sour cream on top.

2. Red~Orange~Gold...your favorite fall color?
I would have to pick Orange.

3. Who did you idolize when you were growing up?
Don't remember anyone special when I was young. But as I got older it has always been Barry Manilow and John Travolta. Always and forever!

4. When was the last time you did something 'arts and craftsy'? Share please.
Haven't done anything in a long time. I am pretty good at ordering pictures on canvas, that is art you know!

5. What's a place that makes you really nervous?
The dentist so I don't go! I think jury duty makes me nervous too.

6. Horse back riding...yay or nay (neigh?)
Haven't been in awhile but I say yay!

7. What is your favorite cliche?
Are you kidding me! ~ Honest to God ~ No way! ~ I can't believe it!

8. Insert your own random thought here.




While staying in London near the airport at a Marriott Hotel I fell in love with the lotion they had in the bathroom. I actually borrowed some extra ones from a cart. {shoosh} I finally googled it, its only been close to three months since we came home! Anyway it is from Pecksniff's and it's from their mood therapy line called CALM: Relax and de-stress with orange, mandarin, coriander, nutmeg and geranium. I thought it might be clove because it certainly has a hint of it and I love it. So needless to say I have an order coming over from Brighton, East Sussex UK which is where their flagship store is. I am also trying the cologne and a candle. Honestly I wish I could put my arm through your screen so you could smell this stuff!

I wish you could put your arm through too. I've often fallen in love with the lotions and such at hotels we've stayed at. Right now I'm on to Lady Primrose.

Enjoyed your answers and I had fun finally getting to participate after a long time away.

Deb said...

always fun finding out new things about our buddies...I like chili with meat and beans...not real spicy...

Kerri said...

i love the dentist and horses make me nervous lol i was scared to get them to go and my uncle died from trying to break one :(

Kerri said...

also i found this awesome stuff in a hotel once and looked it up and it was only made for the hotel couldnt buy it anywhere
it had orange in it too!

LynnMarie said...

#2, the color question was hard for me since I love them all so that is what I did, picked them all!! OK so stick your arm on the screen so I can smell you! He...he.

Holli Taylor said...

That lotion sounds like it smells yummy!

Joyce said...

I love all the Moulton Brown products...it's a London based company. We have a shop in one of the nicer malls and I bought their soap...my hubs couldn't believe the price but he loves the scent too so he's on board.

The lotion sounds heavenly...I've been known to borrow a few extra from hotels when I love the product! Pictures on canvas I love that kind of art....
Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!

Holly said...

That scent does sound quite lovely!

Kathy ... better known as Nana said...

That lotion sounds heavenly ... I'm always on the lookout for wonderfully scented lotions. Too bad you can't stick your arm through the screen so I could smell it. ;-)

I want to try a black bean chili this fall.

ModernMom said...

Maybe you could use some CALM before the Dentist? Nah, forget it, I hate the dentist too!

Kristie said...

The dentist makes me nervous too, but I still go...not sure why-they never have good news for me! :-/

Michelle said...

I suppose jury duty would make me nervous, but I have never had to serve.
I have been called up twice in my life, I was pregnant both times, and was able to opt out. My dear hubby gets called up about every other year, it seems.

Nichol said...

I do not like the dentist, but just made the phone call today to start going again. Haven't been in a long long time:( I am going to check out that lotion sounds great.

Garden of Egan said...

Cute stuff to learn about cute you!

Kathy said...

That lotion sounds like my kind of scent!

I don't like going to the dentist either, but I make myself go every 6 months.

I never realized that your dental health affects your overall health until my doctor explained this to me--and advised me to go. So now I do.

Stacy said...

It seems the dentist makes us all nervous. I don't go unless I have to, either, and let me tell you...nitrous makes it soooo much better. lol

Cathy said...

I used to get really nervous before going to the dentist, but not so much any more. Now it's the doctor who makes me nervous. lol

EmptyNester said...

I've been using a mixture of beans in my chili lately and veggie crumbles- it's delish! I love all the fall colors- as a matter of fact, it's my color scheme in the house!

Tammy Doane said...

I have always wanted to be selected for jury duty and never have-this would be ecxiting for me. Use the lotion before going to the dentist.

nancygrayce said...

The dentist is a horror for me. I have to take a little something before I go. I hope he never retires, because I'm not sure anyone else would put up with me.

I am going to look that lotion up! Sounds wonderful!

Amy said...

White chili? i have never heard of that before..

I love Orange too....

Growing up I loved my Mom...

have a great day...

Randi Troxell said...

i bet your chilli is awesome!
chilli is one of my fave things!!!

Monkey said...

sour cream and cheese tastes amazing in chili!

Alexis AKA MOM said...

I'm trying to scratch and sniff and I got nothing ... lol

The chili sounds yummy as always :).

LOVE your cliche's

blueviolet said...

I wish you really could let me sniff it! Black bean chili sounds really tasty, but I do like it spicy.

I HATE the dentist, but I do go. I clench my fists the entire time I'm there though.

xinex said...

We are the same, Debby. I hate going to the dentists and my hubby and the receptionist gang up on me into getting me there. My idol when I was a teenager was Ricky Nelson. I must be a lot older than you....Christine

Caroline said...

Great answers. I love orange too. It's Ridge's favorite color.

TechnoBabe said...

I would be interested if you get the shampoo from Pecksniff's.

We made chili yesterday. Spicy and also low carb.

I so agree about the dentist.

Tina said...

I enjoyed reading your answers. I enjoy getting to know my blogger friends a little better. I found that we have more in common.
Canvas prints seem to be the new thing. I fell in love with some I had seen at a hospital and started buying them for myself. I just bought some Christmas canvas prints at Cracker Barrel. Love 'em!!

April said...

Hi Debby!
I haven't forgotten about you...life's just been pretty crazy around here! Hope you've been well!

I absolutely LOVE going horseback riding...been several times and would go every day, if I could! Mmm...that lotion sounds right up my alley. I might have to check that out myself!

jennifer said...

Yum! Chili! I can't wait for it to get cold enough here for us to really enjoy it.

My favorite fall color is red. Seeing the maples drenched in red leaves always leaves me feeling a bit awed.

Together We Save said...

Oh yes I love chili!! I also use black beans but I use red ones too!! Oh and I love orange!

Tami said...

The lotion sounds wonderful. My husband thanks you for giving me one more lotion to add to the collection. ;)

Kristin - The Goat said...

Just say no to chilli - that's what I say anyway. I also say no to anything that has a scent. Wanna see me sneeze? Just have an air freshener in your home or car and I will sneeze up a storm until it's removed LOL

However, I do know that people love certain scents and that makes them happy. I like happy people, so I'm glad you ordered a scent that you already knows makes you happy!
