It is a Pink Hodgepodge

It is time to do the Hodgepodge.

Joyce asks the questions
We answer the questions

1. Do you wear your heart on your sleeve, or keep your emotions tucked in tight?
Tucked in tight.
 2. How did you meet your closest friend?
My husband is my best friend. We met when we were young but did not think much of it. During our college years I worked for his parents at the restaurant they owned. Jeremy was also working for his parents for the summer. We both were surprised how much we had grown up. 
3.  Pink lemonade, grilled salmon, cotton candy, pink grapefruit, a strawberry milkshake, or raspberry sorbet...of the pink foods listed, which one is your favorite? Least favorite? Which one have you most recently consumed?

My favorite ~ pink grapefruit
Least favorite ~ pink lemonade
Which one I recently consumed ~ pink grapefruit
4. When were you last 'tickled pink' over something? Explain.

 Friday and Saturday we went out to Cross Country Ski. I am always tickled to take an adventure with my family. 

5. Are you a fan of television talk shows? Daytime, nighttime, or both? What's your favorite?
 6. When was the last time you wanted to ask a question, but felt too foolish to do so?
During my visit to Chicago. My sister and I wanted to look like we knew what we were doing. My sister finally said, " I am going to ask" 
  7. My favorite __________________right now is _________________.
My favorite tea right now is Meyer Lemon Stash Tea. 
I am enjoying a cup right now.
  8.  Insert your own random thought here. 
 An unpublished novel by Harper Lee is to finally see the light of day, 60 years after the US author put it aside to write To Kill a Mockingbird.
My husband and I both love To Kill a Mockingbird. 
Yes, we named our son Atticus after Atticus Finch.
I am so excited to read another novel by Harper Lee. 


  1. I heard a rumor about that book, Carla, I hope it's true!

  2. So fun!! My book club is reading "To Kill A Mockingbird" and I was wondering if that's where you got your son's name too. It's my first time reading it!! I saw that about the other novel coming out and I'm excited about it.

  3. Just reading pink grapefruit and pink lemonade makes me pucker!

  4. Cross country skiing sounds like quite a workout. We like to go sledding when it snows. We still have a lot of snow on the ground and it doesn't look like it will be melting anytime soon.

  5. I've heard some mixed info about the Harper Lee book. I saw something today that said this might be getting published without Ms. Lee's full understanding or against her wishes. I hope publishers aren't taking advantage of her. I'm not sure how I feel about bringing the characters into today. I do hope the choice is hers though, and I'm sure I'll read it.

  6. Oh, I wish I could ski and enjoy it. I had one experience at age 16 and that was "all she wrote." It makes me happy to see others doing it, though.

    I'm with Joyce on the Harper Lee book. I loved To Kill a Mockingbird (and love the name Atticus).

  7. Interesting how you met your hubby. Janice

  8. Oh, my favorite fish is pink Salmon Almondine and I ate some l a few weeks ago.
    I'm always tickled pink when blogger read my blog and leave some comments from the heart.

  9. I'm excited for Harper Lees book to finally be published as well, what a wonderful gift after all these years! Really enjoying these hodgepodge posts! I love pink grapefruit too - and it's adorable that your BFF is your hubby. That's pretty fantastic!

  10. How lovely to see the snow. Nice shots. I have already pre-ordered the Harper Lee book.

  11. I like the one about your closest friend, your husband. That's as it should be. xxx

  12. Love hearing about how you met your husband. So sweet and wonderful! Leaving shortly to go grocery shopping, so will be looking for your favorite tea :)
