Five Questions… and Five Answers

October 19, 2012

I’ve decided to try something new for a change and instead of filling in Hilary’s blank statements, I will answer Mama M.’s  5 questions.

So, here goes!!!

1. Where do you hide junk when people come over?

If I don’t have enough time to do a thorough cleaning before people come over, I’ll do a quick run through (driving the family crazy in the process) and put things away in closets, cabinets and the multitude of bins we have in the family room… great for putting all the kids’ toys away so it doesn’t look so cluttered.

2. Do political ads help you decide who you are going to vote for?

I’ve pretty much decided whom I’m going to vote for so the ads don’t sway me one way or another. I’m very excited to be able to vote for the first time since coming to this country.

3. What’s your favorite holiday party to host?

We used to have New Year’s parties a few years in a row and it was always a lot of fun getting ready for those and then ring in the new year with everyone watching the ball drop in Times Square!

4. You go to an island with your husband and can only take one personal item. What is it?

Wow. That’s a tough one. Probably my toothbrush… I hate it when my teeth feel dirty.

5. If you found out your spouse was a Dexter style serial killer (only kills people to save others) would you rat?

Hmmm. I have never watched Dexter so I can’t really compare it would depend I guess. 


Well, this was fun. Something new and different!!! I’m always up for a little change. 🙂

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

xo, Susi


Instagram Sundays #1

<div align="center"><a href="" title="bocafrau" target="_blank"><img src="" alt="bocafrau" style="border:none;" /></a></div>

I love to share photos and I love Instagram. I was one happy little blogger when Instagram became available on Android devices. I jumped, no leaped, on that particular social media bandwagon and have developed a new love affair/addiction with it. Because of this love affair I have decided to start my very own Sunday link up aptly called… Instagram Sundays!!!

I would love it if you would join me and share the treasures you captured with Instagram during the past week. I see a lot of fantastic, cute, funny and happy moments every day.

Share just one or many of your Instagrams and add a small description.

Just paste the badge into your post or sidebar and maybe follow me… quick and simple.

My Instagram user name is of course, bocafrau!!! 🙂

I look forward to seeing your Instagrams on the big screen!!!

Here are my Instagrams for the past week.

This little guy was on the window screen at my neighbors house. Living in Florida we have our fair share of these little creatures. I even had one in my bathtub recently… yes, I yelped when I saw it. 🙂

My little one at lunch with daddy. I loved the way her hair looked… I called her little Farrah.

Our Finnigan will sit anywhere, as long as she has some warm sunshine on her.

I just can’t get enough of our sunset skies. The colors are unbelievably amazing and this picture does not do them justice.

Middle daughter had a friend over today and what better way to while away a rainy Saturday then with some beading… the girls made themselves anklets.

And for some added Vitamin C they made fresh squeezed orange juice. It was absolutely delicious. There’s just something about fresh squeezed that can never be completely duplicated.

Here is my Saturday project… Cream Puffs. My first time making them and the boys devoured them. I guess, I did okay. I found a German baking book today my Omi (grandma) gave to me years ago and I got so many ideas. Can’t wait to expand my repertoire.
