Ella's Meme - I didn't want to be left out

Ella, thank you for creating this meme. I hope you don't mind me joining in.

Take a look at your walls at home. Which picture/object is your favorite and why? Bonus points if you post a picture.

Tom bought this picture for our bedroom when we moved to the river. It’s in the bedroom over the fireplace.

What is/are your favorite perfume(s)?

Chanel Coco Noir and White Diamonds 

How many pairs of shoes do you own?  Have you ever hidden new shoes from your spouse?

Tom has thrown the name of Imelda Marcos around in the past, but he’s given up the fight now. My shoes have their own closet and I put them in there. Is that hiding them?

Snacks - Sweet, Salty, or Both?  If you could choose 1 snack, and it magically had no calories, what would it be?

I’m more likely to snack on sweets. I’d love it if a good rich Napoleon didn’t have any calories.

What are your favorite cut flowers?

I’m not sure there are any flowers I don’t love. But lilies are just beautiful.  

Without using a real name, describe one person in your life with whom you have a hard time being patient.

I am often irritated by one of Tom’s friends. He is bossy and opinionated and feels he has the right to comment on my activities at times. His only good quality is a lovely, young wife.

What food do you love that your spouse hates?  What food does your spouse love that is "yecch" to you?

I love fast food occasionally – McDonalds, Wendy’s, Bojangles, Tom does not. Tom likes his vegetables, all of them. I'm more selective.  

What is a song you associate with meeting your honey?

Not so much when we were dating, but early in our marriage we woke one morning to hear Roberta Flack singing First Time Ever I Saw Your Face. We were both captured by the song and I still usually cry when I hear it.

Do you have a favorite movie that you like to watch every few months or once a year?

I love to watch old movies. Fried Green Tomatoes is one of my favorites and I watch it every month or so.

What collection(s) do you have?  How did your collection start?  (Add a picture if you like.)

I have some Gone with the Wind figurines, as well as some of the houses, but it’s not a large collection.

Where would you like to go on your next vacation?  Is there somewhere else on your Bucket List?

I really like going to the island anytime we can get away, but I’d love to go back to Greece some day. Tom doesn’t seem anxious to go overseas these days.

If you could only buy clothes at one store, at what store would you shop?

Gracious, this is like asking me to pick a favorite child! Shopping is my favorite sport, if you make me pick one I’ll go with Eddie Bauer.

What gift(s) from your spouse have been the most loved and appreciated?

Tom gives fantastic gifts – but nothing has been much better than our home on the river.

Name one item of your spouse's clothing that you would love to throw away.

There’s a slipper that needs to be trashed immediately.

What is the submissive action (or inaction) of which you are most proud?

Did you have to ask this question?

Somehow I found that last question the hardest to answer as well!

Cassie you are a character! That last question gets me too!

Cat said...

Loved your answers Cassie. I agree...that one shoe should definitely be trashed. Your answer to the last question cracked me up. ;)

Hugs and blessings...Cat

Ella said...

Cassie, you are such a dear! Thanks for doing my meme. Actually I think that of all the versions of this meme I have read (including my own), yours is just the kick-ass best. Next time there is a trip coming up, you must do a stop off at my house. I know a lovely pub where we would have such a good time. Hugs to Tom.

Ella Ever After

abby said... never disappoint. That napoleon does look yummy...and I nodded at your last question.
hugs abby

Cassie, I'd love to share that Napolean. Yum Yum

Cassie said...

Oh Jan, that question was extremely difficult.

I've always love a good meme. This one was fun.

It would take too long to come up with something I'm afraid.

It's like that darn brush, I'm worried he'd fine something worse.

Thank you dear, visiting a pub with you sounds lovely.

I'm glad I'm not the only one having trouble with that last question.

Sunny I would love to share a Napoleon with you!

You do make me smile. Glad you joined in. I'd throw that slipper away right now.
