Q & A #2 in the orange orchard

Pin It!

On the way back from Julian a couple of weeks ago, 
we pulled over at an Orange Orchard and wandered around taking a couple of pictures. 
I could not justify doing a whole blog post on them but figured I would share them with another Q & A session. 
What are some of your pet peeves?
Where do I start? Traffic, slow drivers, tail gaters, loud chewing, guys with long nails, one long pinky nail, dirt under fingernails, servers that aren't quick with refills, ignorance, the word hella. Is it normal to have so many? I could keep going...
Favorite TV channel?
 We actually just cancelled our cable (gasp). We found that we were paying close to $100 and RARELY watching it. Since we didn't have DVR, I never managed to actually catch my favorite shows when they were on, so I would end up watching them online. Shows like Real Housewives of anywhere, Bethenny Ever After, basically anything on Bravo. We signed up for Netflix though since watching movies is one of my favorite things to do in the world.  
 
One thing you wish you could change about yourself?
 If I could change anything about myself it would my anxious, worry-wart tendencies. One reason that I feel Brandon compliments me so well is because he is always calm, which in turn helps to calm me. I'm always worried about the future, or things that we don't have control over, or things that will probably never happen. I have a hard time shutting my brain off at night because a million things that worry me are going through my head.
Can't stay serious for long
What is the one thing that drives you nuts about Brandon?
ooo, this is such a good question! And I've realized that some of the things that drive me nuts are also things I really love about him too. Talk about being conflicted. I love that he's a man of many hobbies. He's so handy and can fix almost anything. Along with that talent comes a slight obsession with working on things in the garage. He would disappear into the garage for days at a time if I didn't come nagging him once in awhile. For instance, this weekend he has probably spent about 12 hours out there so far. He only left the garage yesterday because we had to meet my parents in Temecula for Mother's Day lunch.
Doesn't it make you want freshly squeeze orange juice?

oh worry-wart ... those warts happen to the best of us. ugh. and I'm totally thinking about cancelling our cable. my husband would kill me, but I so want to do it.

Emily Hope said...

My favourite shot is the one of you attempting to deep throat that orange! It's impressive grams.

Now seriously I EFFIN' hate loud chewers. I can't stand it. It grosses me out even thinking about it.

We are also considering cancelling our cable - probably after hockey season. I never watch it.

Love your dress!

Girlfriend I have been to Julian more times than I can count and how come I've never come across this delightful little orchard??
Love the pics :)
Somehow, I'm now craving oranges.

Saar said...

Indeed, I want fresh orange juice really bad right now!! Wha!
I have many pet peeves too!!!

Empirically Erin said...

I have so much to say about this post!! #1 your dress is so so cute. #2 Being from Maine, it's so weird to see oranges growing on a tree. I've honestly never seen it so it seems weird even though obviously I know where they come from. And finally, #3, I will be adding one of your buttons to my blog as one of my favorite reads!

Loved the Q&A's girl ! And we are so stinkin similar! I think I worry all the time, and Joel has to coach me through things like, we forgot milk at the grocery....sad...I know!

Keep em' coming!

Charisma Moran said...

What a beautiful orchard!

John and I didn't have cable for awhile...we also found ourselves not watching it. Netflix and our movie collection was all we needed!

I also worry about EVERYTHING!! I wish I could stop but then I worry about my worrying! Lately I have been meditating before bed which has REALLY helped me clear my mind and get to sleep.

Nicole Marie said...

such a good idea canceling tv.. i don't have cable or a tv here in spain and i don't think i'll ever need it again... you can watch everything you want online anyways.

Katie {katie lately} said...

you must have driven right past me! I pass those orange orchards anytime we go to town :) they're so pretty!

Angie said...

I'm in love with your dress! And great photos...FUN! Happy weekend! :)

Kasey Lynne said...

Thanks to those oranges, I now would like a mimosa. Yum!

Cute dress!

Ben & Cassie said...

Great Q&A Sesh! You are like the twilight books except with an orange instead of an apple, and Bella wouldn't be caught dead smiling, so you are better for sure!

Sarah Kate said...

These pictures remind me of the No Doubt album in the 90's - the one with 'Don't Speak' on it. Do you remember that one??! I probably listened to that CD 400 times. :o)

Michelle {lovely little things} said...

Fun photo shoot in the orange grove - great pics!

MissKate said...

My boy would have stayed put and eaten all the oranges he could get his little hands on. He would have been in heaven! Great pics!!

Carly Ann said...

I also hate the word hella. And my boyfriend is a man of many hobbies also. I always feel a little guilty when I nag him about not being home or spending time with me because he is always playing with his "toys" or working on something.

lo @ crazy ever after said...

Deep throating oranges. Hot.

We got rid of cable. And I feel sorta smug about it. Like I am living proof that there is life after Bravo. And I am living it to the fullest, gosh damnit. OK. Totally going thru some RHofAnywhere withdrawal. ;)

Katherine Krieg said...

you look so pretty! love the dress!

Jamie said...

I love, love, LOVE this post and can totally relate to you on so many things! First, traffic is my biggest pet peeve and living in San Diego isn't the best for that. Second, I am totally anxiety proned and my husband has helped me so much in this area without knowing it. We also don't have cable, but we have Hulu plus and Netflix, and survive on both just fine :)

Hollie Ann said...

We also cancelled cable!! Dawson's Creek was just added to Netflix streaming!!! I watched 3 episodes tonight hahaha. Also Hulu plus is like $8 a month and has GREAT shows you can stream on the computer :)

Aspiring Kennedy said...

Worrying can get the best of us sometimes. It's nice to be reminded that I am not alone in that. Thank you for the beautiful orange grove pictures! Because of you, I got my daily glass of oj and vitamin C. My doctor will be so proud!

Brielle said...

i cancelled my cable too :) Hulu is a good source because it will save your shows (FOR FREE!) in a queue. Just stumbled upon your blog loving it so far :)

I am Megan said...

I am loooooving your pics!! You are so funny.

And its normal, everyone has pet peeves!
