I think we need a little fluff :)

1. Have you/Will you decorate(d) for the fall?

2. Have you started any Holiday shopping yet?

3. What is one food (or drink) that you look forward to when the weather gets cooler?

Bonus (it was a discussion at work yesterday and wondered others opinions):
4. If you were able to have an inheritance for your children (or maybe you have already experienced this with your own family), and you were able to live comfortably and was not relying on that money to survive, would you rather spend the money while you are alive and watch your children enjoy the money now or would you rather have it given to them when you died?

Money after what you know you will need the next so and so years (depending on your age) to live comfortably.

Ugghhh!!!-lol!! We had it like that at my sister's once (even though I have had it out before many times like that) and they liked it. I thought great, one less step :)

I am not really good at "what if's". Since I don't think I will ever be at the point that I know for sure I have enough money to last the rest of my life I have no idea what I would do if it were to happen.

That how I feel about it, too. (Great, one less step.) Unfortunately, DD isn't too fond of skins, so I'm still peeling most of the time.

The thing that drives me more crazy in terms of food prep though is DH's preference that other veggies be peeled including (young) zucchini, (young) squash, peppers, and tomatoes. He'll eat them if they're not, but I think it's silly for him to spend so much time peeling things that don't need to be peeled! Especially since that's where most of the nutrients are.

That's similar to my potato soup.

Have you ever gone to a financial planner?

I remember being insanely confused in elementary school when I tasted the mashed potatoes. I had only had real mashed potatoes before that point and couldn't understand why they tasted so incredibly terrible. Honestly, there are very few foods I refuse to eat in almost all cases, but instant mashed potatoes are one of them.

Interestingly though, I love Pringles chips-- so much so that I pretty much never buy them or I'd eat them all!

I have heard that they have really changed since we were kids. My mom always made homemade and I have in the past bought the instant but they were "flavored"-lol!! cheddar, sour cream and chives, etc. I prefer to make my own though.
