Friend Making Monday

Today is Friend Making Monday over at Kasey's blog.

I get a ton of these kinds of things.......sometimes I do them, sometimes I don't.  Kinda depends on what kind of questions are asked.  I have to admit that it is an interesting way to get to know a lot about someone!  

You wouldn't be caught dead where?
Working anywhere with natural gas........the smell makes me gag!

Do you have any hidden talents?: 
Let's see........I snap backwards.  My middle finger snaps in front of my thumb instead of behind it.  I don't know if you'd call that a husband calls it weird.

Name two things you consider yourself to be very good at: 
Making Green Chile Stew

Name two things you consider yourself to be very bad at: 
Anything crafty - especially scrapbooking!

Have you ever won a trophy?: Drill Team during high school.  We won state my Junior and Senior year!  It was all because of my Rockette worthy high kicks.......just kidding.

Name one thing not many people know about you: 
I was interviewed by CNN when Ike came roaring into town.  Apparently a guy who works on Campbell Brown's show read my blog and a post referring to Ike and contacted me.  My only claim to fame and it wasn't even bumped by the commuter train wreck in California.  They were nice enough to send a copy of the final story to me and my husband shows it to everyone who comes over to the house!  I still haven't watched it.......I just don't like to watch video of myself!!

Name your earliest memory: 
Sneaking out of bed (apparently I did that a lot in an attempt to drive my parents insane so they'd be institutionalized by the time I was 3) and listening to them watch TV.  VERY faint memory - I think I was only 2 or 3.

What was your favorite musical group in jr. high?: 
Toss up between Duran Duran and Depeche Mode.

What was something the worst roommate you ever had did?: 
I was very lucky in the roommate department.  One of my roommates, and good friend, did decide to kiss my ex-boyfriend...........but honestly?  It was pretty funny!

When you were a kid what did you want to be when you grew up?: 
A doctor......I still think about it to this day.

What was your worst dating experience?: 
I was the victim of a "bet date" in my younger years.  Nothing worse than being excited about being asked out, only to find out it was all a bet!!

If you were about to die what would your last meal be?: 
Salad made by my sister, Cyndi.  She makes incredible salads!!
Chips and salsa from Chuys
Green Chile Stew
Bakery cake with buttercream frosting with enormous flowers on top

Who is the most important person in you life?: 
My husband.  No question.  Making him my #1 priority makes us better parents, friends, etc.

If your house was on fire what 3 things would you grab on your way out?: 
My husband, kids, and dog could get out by themselves so that doesn't count.

My computer because it has all of our pictures on it.
My pictures that are someday supposed to be scrapbooked......see answer to question above about what you're bad at.
Grandmother's jewelry.

Thanks Kasey for hosting another fun Friend day!  I look forward to seeing what the topic will be every Monday!!


  1. Hi Kari:

    Fellow Texan here....Dallas. I know what you mean about football in Texas. LOL

    You got me on the bet date...that was a new one. Your Green Chile Stew sounds interesting you will have to share the recipe!

    Very cute boys!!!

  2. Hi! I am so glad that there is abother Depeche Mode fan here!!!!!!

    I think that the snapping backwards is a skill, I just tried it and it hurt. Yea you!

    Dude, and you said Chuy's!!!!!!! Love it!

    have a great Monday

  3. YOu should have asked for your cut of the bet. Tell them you get 50% for making them look good. LOL

    And I am still trying to sit here and picture you snapping.

    Oh by the way.... its been a LONG time since I lived in Texas. You totally lost me in the Texan lingo. Sorry. LOL

  4. Your answers are great! And made me laugh. I especially appreciate your last meal answer, must have been the cake that got me!! I apparently have a very large sweet tooth these days! :)

  5. Hi Keri!
    I love your blog. What a cute picture you have in your header. Your kids are adorable!

    I loved Duran Duran and Depeche Mode too! I am excited to get to know you better!


  6. Duran Duran - oh yes!And being one who had her house catch on fire - after the kids & hubs got out I grabbed - THE BILLS! Of all things. When fireman got here the first thing they saved was HH deer head mount - his first & only one at the time. My how we have grown! Enjoy your blog so very much! You are an encouragement:)

  7. Lisa and I were talking about your Green Chile Stew this weekend -- how is it that I have never had this?! And thanks for not saying that I was a nightmare room mate, by the way! :-)

    Love your answers! Miss you!

  8. I lived in Houston at one time. I miss Chuy's that was a great place to go. Thanks for stopping by.

  9. Hey there! Got your comment- no Ian yet, I was just feeling too tired to post yesterday. But news on that front...we are being induced tomorrow. If it is not too much to ask, I would love prayers for a safe delivery & a healthy baby boy!!

    Thanks so much! Hope you have a great week!!


  10. Now I have to check your blog for the green chile stew recipe. Great list!

  11. Love Depech Mode to this very day! I want you to know that I sat here like a dork and repeatedly tried to snap my fingers that way. It didn't work. All I accomplished was to hasten the onset of osteo-arthritis.
