Etsy: Does the Bride Really Know the Groom? 

This is an Etsy bridal shower game.

1. What’s your favorite kind of cake? Chocolate (which is my answer for most sweets-related questions).

2. What’s your favorite cocktail? It changes. This past week has been unseasonably cool here in Chicagoland and I thoroughly enjoyed warming up with a mug of spiked hot chocolate. The rum gave it a nice kick. Once spring starts feeling more like spring, and vaccinations enable me to go out with friends, I predict I'll switch to Negroni.

3. If you are alone for the evening, what do you fix yourself for dinner? I'm always alone for dinner. Especially because of covid. (You can't stop taking it seriously, just because you're bored with it.) Anyway, I usually make myself a main dish of some sort of protein (last week it's been chicken) and then I mix up the sides so I don't get bored: mashed potatoes, corn, peas, salad ...

4. What make was your first car? A Chevy Impala. It was a seriously big boat of a car.

5. What is your height? I always say 5'2, but to be honest, I haven't been measured in decades. I think I'm lying and I'm closer to 5'.

6. What was your least favorite toy as a child? I don't recall anything specific, but I did find jigsaw puzzles to be a disappointment as a gift.

7. What’s your favorite cartoon character? Mr. Peabody (and his boy Sherman, of course).

Every dog should have a boy


8. What’s your dream car? One that comes with a chauffeur.

9. What’s your favorite pizza topping? Sausage.

10. What’s your favorite sports team? I love any excuse to post a photo of my all-time favorite-most Cub, Anthony Rizzo.

11. What’s your favorite TV show? This Is Us.

12. What is your favorite ice cream? Mint chocolate chip.

13. What is your favorite song? All My Loving by the Beatles. The sweetest, most romantic song sung by The Cute One. The guitars sound very rough and jangly on this, but I'm so impressed by their harmonies. Remember, at the height of Beatlemania, they couldn't hear one another well over the screaming girls. Nicely done, Lads, nicely done.

14. What’s your least favorite chore? Picking up after myself.

15. What was your first job? Babysitting




  1. I am 5'2" tall.
    I forgot about babysitting which was probably every girl's
    first job.
    Have a wonderful Easter!

  2. I forgot about babysitting too. I did not love babysitting. I enjoyed working with my friends at that age, but you are right...that was my first job too.
    Baseball starting soon here too. Loved your answers! Have a nice day and Happy Easter!

  3. all my loving is wonderful song

  4. I am supposed to be 5'2" as well, but that's with thick sneakers on, so I know it's not correct.

  5. I love "this is us" too but I'm finding this season to be too disjointed, with all those characters and trying to figure out who they are supposed to be and are they in the past or in the present?

  6. Oddly enough, I never babysat.

  7. Hey neighbor! I knew I’d find da Cubs as your favorite team. I totally forgot about Mr Peabody! Which is ridiculous because I always say when my son comes with me on errands I say my car must be a way-back machine because I am always treated to a story he tells about high school.
    Ugh, just noticed babysitting. I babysat for a friend of my Dad’s. They had 6 kids, all really young. 1 was a baby. My Mom packed a care package for me to dole out to the kids...chips, candy bars, peanut butter and crackers, etc because the family had little money and those kids were always hungry when I came to babysit after dinner. I got fifty cents an hour and I felt badly about taking it (other kids I sat for, their parents paid fifty cents per hour per kid). I gave my Mom the money to get snacks for them for the next time I babysat. She told me to refuse payment once each day I babysat, if they insisted take it because it was a matter of pride.
