Friend Makin’ Mondays: Simple Questions

by Kenlie Tiggeman on January 7, 2013

It’s Monday again, and you know what that means, right?  This week I’m going to get right to the point because it’s late, and I’m sleepy!  Now that I’m back home, I’m looking forward to doing some fun things with my blog.


If you’ve taken part in FMM then you know the rules. If you’re new, please take a moment to answer this week’s question on your own blog then add your link in the comments section here at: so we can all see your FMM questions and answers. Please invite your blog readers to add their links here too so everyone has to opportunity to be seen. The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to post your own FMM post and comment on a couple of other posts. Now it’s time for this week’s topic!


Simple Questions

1. Outside my window I see…the Superdome and lots of other buildings.

2. My kitchen counters are…gray granite.

3. Yesterday I drank…lots of water – sparkly and regular.

4. My cell phone is…going back to the store.  I’ve decided that I want to Samsung Galaxy 3 instead of the iPhone

5. My computer is…super lightweight and portable.

6. My favorite reality show is…probably on TLC or WE TV.  I don’t really have a favorite, but I love David Tutera and his shows.

7. My workouts are…consistent this week. I’ll work to make them consistent again this week.

8. The last book I read is…not suitable to discuss here.  Just kidding.  It’s embarrassing to admit that I’m reading a Christmas romance novel, but there you have it.

9. My week will be….exciting because I’m going to trivia with friends and seeing Jersey Boys courtesy of my sweet friend, Shannon.

10.  So far 2013 has been…a good year.  I’ve made some goals, and I’m working toward them.  More on that later.


Now it’s your turn to answer this week’s questions.  Don’t forget to come back and link up in the comments!  Happy Monday, friends!

I have the Samsung Galaxy S3, love it. Hopefully you will, too. I have no comparison to the Iphone, though, so I won’t say it’s superior as that would imply I’ve compared and I haven’t.

Hope you have fun with your friends :)

Here’s my link for this week:

I was just thinking I was about the only person who hadn’t wholly committed to my 2013 exact goals/resolutions yet. Glad to hear someone else is still pondering. Mine are going to be set for sure this week. Anyway, here are my responses:

Happy New Year! No shame in reading a romance novel. My boyfriend recently opened my E-reader only to find lists and lists of historical romance novels LOL

Happy New Year!

I haven’t participated in an FMM since late October, and I’m glad to be back. Great questions, I’m especially interested in people’s books. I’m always on the lookout for a great new read.


Jane January 7, 2013 at 4:49 pm

I don’t have a blog – my New Years resolution was simply to participate in this one. Love the questions and answered in my head. 2013 has been busy and upbeat so far.

I don’t have a blog, but thought I’d play along in the new year since these are easy questions :)
1) Dirty melting snow
2) Hideously ugly wood-looking Formica
3) leftover ginger ale
4) dead…and I left the charger in the car. No one ever calls me so I forget to charge it & I heard it die this afternoon
5) old…I use my iPad for pretty much everything so I hardly ever touch it
6) Amazing Race….love to see the places they go
7) limited….I hurt my shoulder & can’t lift anything. I’m trying out my new running shoes tonight :)
8) The Lake Effect…I’m only partway thru
9) long….this is my first 40 hr work wk in a while & there’s 60 hrs worth of work to do :(
10) cold….looking fwd to warmer weather this wk

Not sure if this will be a double post, but for some reason I don’t think my first post took. I’ve been reading your blog for some time now, but this is the first time I’ have commented. I wish you the best in your journey.

No shame in reading a Christmas romance novel! Why not give yourself the gift of self-indulgence? :)

Here’s mine. Happy Monday, everyone!


Janice @ fit foot January 9, 2013 at 9:59 am

Mine is ridiculously late as I’ve been sorting out comment posting issues with Akismet!

Wednesdays are the new Mondays!
