TBB Asks - September and Back to School

I am participating in The Blended Blog's monthly questions again. This month's theme is back to school. While I don't have school aged children, I do have preschool aged children.
TBB Asks Back to School Edition

1. Did you love school or hate it? I wouldn't say I loved it, but I did like it. All the way through high school, school was easy. I rarely had homework and graduated with a 3.98 GPA.

2. Start school before or after Labor Day? I say after. Let the kids enjoy their summer. Around here school starts the first or second week of August. While I didn't start school this early, it was usually the 3rd or 4th week of August.

3. Wake up: eager beaver or slow poke? Slow poke. I love my sleep.

4. Favorite breakfast? My mom's french toast with powdered sugar on it.

5. Favorite cereal? I am not a cereal person. I will eat it dry, but that is about it.

6. School uniform or no uniform? None. We didn't have to wear them and I am ok with that.

7. New outfit for the first day or no? I always wore a new outfit for the first day. I am definitely keeping that a tradition with my girls too.

8. Walk to school or ride the bus? I walked to school until I hit middle school and then it was too far, so I rode the bus until I got my driver's license.

9. Backpack, tote or messenger bag? I used a backpack or messenger bag throughout my school years.

10. Eat school lunch or pack? I did a combo of it.

11. Remember the little milk cartons? White or chocolate? Chocolate.

12. Paper bag or lunch box? Paper bag.

13. Favorite thing to do at recess? Play kickball or sports like that.

14. Favorite back to school supply item? Specialty binders.

15. Chalkboard or dry erase board? I remember having both growing up, but I preferred the dry erase.

16. Regular pencil or mechanical? I am old school and like the regular.

17. Homework as soon as you got home or after dinner? Neither. I usually finished my homework during another class and when I was in elementary school it was always right after school.

18. Favorite after school snack? Fruit snacks or fruit.

19. Favorite after school show? Saved by the Bell. So good. I still love watching it.

20. Favorite subject in school? Science.

21. Lease favorite subject in school? English.

22. Name of your best friend in high school? I had a few of those....Brandy, Lynzie, Kristina, April.

23. High school mascot type? Person. He was a Senator.

24. SAT or ACT? I took both of them.

25. Favorite year in school? I would say senior year.

26. Class ring or no class ring? None. I was going to get one and then decided not to.

27. Attend or not attend high school reunions? I have attended my 10 year reunion and my 20 year is coming up in 2021 which I plan to attend.

Your turn. Are we similar?


  1. I can just picture you buying the girls the sweetest little first day outfits! I bet you were a doll in school just like you are now! Regular pencils all the way, I still use them. Enjoy your day off pretty lady!

    1. Oh yes, I will definitely be doing that. Oh you are just too sweet. I still use regular pencils too!

  2. We have the opposite fave and least fave subjects!

  3. I loved reading these -- back to school still gives me that giddy feeling even though it's been a LONG time since I personally had a first day. ;) Saved by the Bell. <3 I recently worked with the creator of that show and it brought back ALL the memories. I didn't get a class ring either!

  4. Homemade French Toast sounds super delicious!


  5. I loved my moms French toast too, that was another favorite breakfast of mine while growing up. Thanks for sharing loved reading this.

  6. I too was not a fan of english class. I still have nightmares about my teacher. haha. My science teacher was pretty awesome and I did enjoy my science class.

  7. I always loved picking out new supplies every year. 20 year reunion? Ugh stop with that. I wont be going to mine, but obviously it the same year as yours and I just....I cant think about how it has been nearly 20 years. That is insane!

  8. I just love first day of school outfits. I haven't really done that with my kids...perhaps I should, haha. My 20 year is coming up next year, not sure if I am going to go, I know the person trying to organize it and she really doesn't want to, so not sure what we're going to do.
