House Meme

I was tagged by Shalini at Random Thoughts to do this house meme. So- here goes:

House meme:

1. What kind of soap is in your bathtub right now? Sweet Pea from Bath & Body Works and Lever.
2. Do you have any watermelon in your refrigerator? Nope
3. What would you change about your living room? I'd make it bigger
4. Are the dishes in your dishwasher clean or dirty? Clean- and yes I know I should be emptying it instead of blogging.
5. What is in your fridge? Lots of food- I just went grocery shopping
6. White or wheat bread? White
7. What is on top of your refrigerator? Knife set, cooking griddle
8. What color or design is on your shower curtain? It's tan with lavender colored flowers
9. How many plants are in your home? Real plants? None- that would require me remembering to water them.
10. Is your bed made right now? Ummmm.... why yes, of course no
11. Comet or Soft Scrub? Comet
12. Is your closet organized? Yes
13. Can you describe your flashlight? It lights up the dark
14. Do you drink out of glass or plastic most of the time at home? Glass
15. Do you have iced tea made in a pitcher right now? Nope.
16. If you have a garage, is it cluttered? It's not too bad. There is an area where I have some rubbermaid storage boxes which are neatly labeled and shelved. Then there is Rich's work area. I try not to look there.
17. Curtains or blinds? Both
18. How many pillows do you sleep with? One
19. Do you sleep with any lights on at night? A nightlight in the bathroom and in Hailey's room. We also leave a light on in the living room, that way any potential burglars will think we stay up all night and will be scared away.
20. How often do you vacuum? Some places- like the kitchen I do everyday. I do the entire house on Tuesdays & Fridays.
21. Standard toothbrush or electric? Standard
22. What color is your toothbrush? Purple
23. Do you have a welcome mat on your front porch? No, not right now. I do during certain seasons when I have one that matches the decorations I have out. But, I don't have one for the fall season.
24. What is in your oven right now? Nothing
25. Is there anything under your bed? A storage container that has wrapping paper, gift bags and bows in it.
26. Chore you hate doing the most? Cleaning the bathtub and folding laundry.
27. What retro items are in your home? None
28. Do you have a separate room that you use as an office? No- our computer is in our family room. I use my Rich's laptop at the kitchen table. We have a room that we want to turn into an office, but right now it is set up with my treadmill, a TV, and a bunch of storage type stuff.
29. How many mirrors are in your home? Eight or possibly more- but eight for sure.
30. Do you have any hidden emergency money around your home? No
31. What color are your walls? Do you know that I had to look around to answer this question? Well, I did- and what I see is plain old boring white walls. Time to buy some paint.
32. Do you keep any kind of protection weapons in your home? Golf clubs- Rich keeps one next to his side of the bed and if I ever hear any scary noises he takes it with him while checking for monsters for me.
33. What does your home smell like right now? Coffee
34. Favorite candle scent? Any fall scented Yankee candle
35. What kind of pickles (if any) are in your refrigerator right now? Dill
36. What color is your favorite Bible? Black
37. Ever been on your roof? No way. I bungee jumped as a teenager but the thought of getting on my roof makes my hands get all sweaty and my tummy queasy.
38. Do you own a stereo? Yes
39. How many TVs do you have? 4, which is obviously more than we need. But, we don't use one of them because we bought a new one to replace it- but haven't gotten rid of the old one yet. Oh- and the one that is supposed to be used while I'm walking on the treadmill? That one doesn't get used either.
40. How many house phones? Only 1 and we never use it- we only use our cell phones.
41. Do you have a housekeeper? Why yes I do, in my dreams.
42. What style do you decorate in? Different styles in different rooms of the house.
43. Do you like solid colors in furniture or prints? Both
44. Is there a smoke detector in your home? Yes, of course.
45. In case of fire, what are the items in your house which you’d grab if you only could make one quick trip? I assume that since the question says "items" that the people and Dottie are already safe. In that case I would grab photo albums. Those are the only items that can't be replaced.

I am not going to specifically tag anyone- but I would love it if everyone played along. So, if you're reading please play along and let me know when you do so that I can check out your post.

I loved reading this...normally I would play along, but this week is B-U-S-Y. I LOVED your flashlight answer...that is something I would say!

Regina said...

Jeez, this thing was long but it was very interesting! I think #19 was hilarious! Yea, I'm sure the burglers really think you, rich, dottie, and a 1 year old baby sit up in the living room all night!!!
I'm going to do it, just don't know when (I'm supposed to be doing homework right now, for a class I have tomorrow!) but I'll eventually do it!
Blessings!

Andrea said...

how fun! I laughed TOO hard at the golf club weapons! haha! I should get my hubby to keep a weapon like that beside our bed for when I wake him up and ask him what that weird noise is in the middle of the night! hehe

Sharon said...

You are going to have to explain to me how to put an answer and then draw a line through it.
Haven't figured it out yet.
My bed is not made either. :)
And since I am getting ready to get in it again--I don't think it is going to happen today. ;)

ZAM said...

Photo Albums and memories- I like that. And #10 (ours isn't! or ours always end up like it isn't because of the Matt's powers!). Hehe.

Anyway, I always say to myself that I'd do the tags here and there...and look, I haven't done anything lately...There's one I'm trying to do but I haven't made progress since last wk..I hope you'd forgive me if I forget to do this. Heheh.
