Link Up: The Blended Blog Asks August 2017

Today I am jumping into a new link up with the Blended Blog with The Blended Blog Asks and I think this will be a really Good way to start a Monday. Let's jump into these Summertime questions.

1) Pool, Lake or Ocean?

Pool every day, Ocean as our standard vacation in Delaware, and we just went to Deep Creek Lake late last fall, where I think we need to explore more.

2) Camping, Cottage or Hotel? 

Hotel with room service. I am indoorsy not outdoorsy. Although we did really love the house we stayed at in Deep Creek and I would call that a cottage.

3) Favorite Ice Cream Flavor? 

My favorite is black raspberry ice cream with chocolate jimmies aka sprinkles. This flavor takes me back to my childhood and it's so Good. You can find it everywhere in New England but can be hard to find where we live. I am finding it a lot in our sweet little beach town as a standard now too at two of the ice cream shops.

4) P.J.'s, Nightgown, T-shirt/shorts or Birthday Suit?

I am a total pajamas person either with the little shorts or longer pants in the fall/winter.

5) Fave Summer Beverage?

I drink Sauvignon Blanc all year round. It's pretty much all I drink with an occasional hard cider here and there. I will say that Running Daddy's favorite is a Dark n' Stormy and I will take a sip of that from time to time. He likes them so much we named our dog after that cocktail!

6) Would you rather be hot or cold?

I thought long and hard about this and had to consult Hockey is the answer.

7) Sandal with heels or flats?

I would have to say a flat and then a wedge heel. Right now I am very into Oka-B sandals both in a flat and wedge. Here are the styles similar to what I am wearing now.

I have a navy pair minus the bow                                            Oka-B Kylie wedge

8) Shorts or Skirts?

I prefer to wear skirts, but end up wearing shorts most of the time.

9) Sit in the sun or shade? 

While I love the sun, I really need to sit in the shade due to my lupus. 

10) Water, tea or soda?

Water all the way!

11) Favorite summer fruit/vegetable?

I love watermelon and really good corn on the cob. That just totally says summer to me. So Good!

12) Sunrise or sunset?

We get up early in the Good Better Best household, even on vacation. I love a Good beach sunrise.

13) Bike ride or walk?

Even though we ride our bikes as our primary mode of transportation at the beach, I am actually a big walker.

14) Winery or Brewery?

Since I cannot have gluten and since I am such a wine gal...winery all the way. We need a local winery trip soon!

15) Garden or No Garden?

Typically I have a garden and I love it, but since we are about to do some major renovations outside and since we just completed (like on Friday) an eight month renovation inside, there was no garden in 2017. I cannot wait to get the Good Better Best garden up and running again.

16) Big Summer Concert or Music in the Park?

I am a little more more in the park, but we have not made it there yet. I also love a good outdoor movie.

17) Fave Cookout Food?

I am very into ribs right now. I make them the way I like to eat them. A little bit more about how I cook my ribs in this post here.

18) Dine indoors or on the patio?

On the patio all the way, especially since we have had Mosquito Authority coming to keep the nasty bugs away.

19) Fave Summer Destination?

Bethany Beach, DE!  Especially for the 4th of July week.

20) Big theme park or local carnival?

We are a theme park family.  Although we usually skip it in the summer and usually head to places like Busch Gardens or Hershey Park for either Spring Break or in late May.

21) Drinks Blended or on the Rocks?

When I drink something like a margarita, I can go either way.

22) Popsicle or Freeze flavor of choice? 

If I can find it, I do like a root beer Popsicle.  If not I like grape or blue raspberry. 

23) Hot Dog or Hamburger?

Hamburger...with avocado on top.

Well I had a Good time with my first TBB Asks.  I hope you enjoyed it too!
