WWTKW - Kiss & Tell??

It's Wednesday and time for another We Want To Know Wednesday with my IRL friends, Seriously Shawn & Impulsive Addict and a few iFriends, Mamarazzi & Janette.

WWTKW is a great distraction from what you should be doing on Wednesday - for me, as I am in Illinois for a few weeks and not at home, WWTKW doesn't take me away from much more than swimming, playing cards with the kids, reading, playing with Bubba, eating, oh you get the drift.......

Anyways, I need to get back into the bloggy world after a wonderful week off at the beach, so WWTKW is a great way to do that.

IA asked a few fun questions this week, so here we go:

{1} What was the last thing you searched for online?
I feel like I search for things online constantly.  With my MacBook and iPhone always so close, the world is literally at your fingertips.  Yesterday alone I searched for cute baby shower favor ideas, wedding reception song ideas, New York City hotel reviews, and the creamy jalapano dip dressing (Cuz I can't go 5 weeks with out my beloved Chuy's).
But last night, as the kids and I started our "Countdown to the Last Harry Potter Movie Marathon", I looked up an actor on IMDB to see if he had been in anything else - he hadn't.  random much?

{2} If we visit your home state, what is one thing we MUST do before leaving?
Well, it fairly obvious that I am from Texas - ahem, the best state in the US.  And there are so many must do's in Texas, the Alamo, the Riverwalk, the Hill Country, hanging out on South Congress in downtown Austin, or NASA in Houston.  Hmmm......but what MUST you do?
Have some amazing BBQ - many states claim to have the "best" BBQ, but nothing tops the smoky tang of Texas BBQ - that's beef y'all.  And no one smokes it better.  Trust me.

{3} What do you think pharmaceutical companies should invent a pill for that isn't on the market yet?
Many of you know that I worked for a major pharmaceutical company for over 13 years, so I saw up close & personal the amount of work it takes to get a product to market - for every 1000 compounds that get discovered/created, maybe one or two actually make it to market.
So, forgive me for taking a serious approach to this question, but I want to see more products that stop, slow, or completely reverse heart disease.  Heart Disease is the number one killer. Number One.  We need to eliminate it.

{4} When was your first kiss?  Was it good or bad?
6th grade.  With a boy I thought was that cats meow - can't even remember his name and quite honestly, can't even remember the kiss.  it was that memorable.
My first kiss that knocked my socks off?  My first kiss with my sweet honey - I'll never forget that moment - nuff said.

{5} What is your guilty pleasure tv show that you can not miss?
I have always enjoyed the Real Housewives shows, but the RH of New Jersey took it to a new level and this season does not disappoint.  Why is Melissa & Joe so mean to Teresa?  Where do they come up with all that $$$? Is Teresa really that much of a nimwit?  It's total trash but it makes me laugh at the over-the-top superficiality.  And I dig it.

Thanks for the fun questions ladies.

And if I can ask one last favor - I am currently working on a new blog about family travel, which features family trips, tips, and great ideas submitted by the experts in traveling with family - you!! I would love for you to take a moment and check it out, become a follower, come back often, and if you are so lead, submit a story or two of your favorite vacation?

Lastly, if you did the Twitter, follow us:

What do you do with the Jalapeno Dip Dressing? Did you find a recipe?

We look up actors on IMDB all the time!

Teresa KNOWS what she did. I wish they would freakin TELL US!

VandyJ said...

We love Rudy's BBQ in San Antonio--first BBQ we'd ever had--it was awesome!

Rhonda said...

Yummo, you are making me hungry! Ha! You had me at jalapeno...dip. I love them...please share the recipe. I'm fixing to bring in a harvest. ;)

Love your new blog too!

Kelli said...

What did we do before Google? I search for things all of the time! Rondell would love to try the BBQ in Texas. My TV guilty pleasure is The Young & the Restless.

Johanson Family said...

Okay, I couldn't get past the comment about looking for a good baby shower favor-- did you find one? I love that kind of stuff!!

Nadine Hightower said...

It think it total jealousy between melissa and teresa. pure and simple. And yes I think Teresa is a total airhead.

Amber said...

IMDB is one of my most favorite sites, I'm pretty sure I'm on it at least once a day.

I'm a BBQ fiend but I've never had "real" southern BBQ...someday, someday!

MiMi said...

I want Texas bbq. I really really really want to go to TX. I would SUPER love it I bet. :)

Anonymous said...

I have friends in TX and have always wanted to see the Riverwalk. I must plan a trip.

sarajo said...

I so want to visit Texas someday. Try some great BBQ for sure!

Impulsive Addict said...

I was HOPING you'd say South Congress! Sofa king fun! =)

For every 1000? Only one or two go to market? Wow. That's so sad. As long as I continue to exercise, my heart will be ok right? Just say yes. I don't want to worry about my heart.

When do you come back to Texass? <---hehe

Stacie said...

Love IMDB--I am the worst at looking up plot summaries in the middle of a movie because I have to know what is going to happen!

Jessica @ My Simply Complicated said...

Two things:

1) Amen to trying our BBQ. You can' CAN'T. So, don't try. The Neelys have nothing on Tejas.

2) RHONJ...oh my gosh! So glad someone else sees what I see. I feel like Joe is blowing the whole thing out of proportion and I don't care for Melissa. ALTHOUGH, Teresa isn't the smartest person ever and she can't admit when something isn't going right in her life. Whhhhhhhy?

Texas Brisket- nobody does it better.

Colleen said...

I'm the same way with the online searching. I had at least 4 open google searches just while I was answering WWTKW.

I'll be checking out your new blog. Great idea!

He & Me + 3 said...

Ok so, I really love NC BBQ. I guess I would be in love with Texas BBQ huh? Have fun in IL

~ Crystal ~ said...

I do want to go back to Texas to go to the Alamo. And I love all BBQ. Doesn't matter to me what state it comes from!

A pill to eliminate heart disease would be awesome!

I haven't seen any of the Real Housewives shows, but I hear people talking about them a lot. Apparently the New jersey ones are the best {train wrecks, that is}.

Liz @ Sugarplum Creations said...

I've been wanting to take a trip to Texas for a long time, and now you've pretty much got me talked into it! :)

Headin' over to your new blog. How fun!

Shawn said...

We never had BBQ while we were there. Well know you've done it I need to come back for another visit for some BBQ with a Texas martini!
