All about Eric

Yesterday was Eric's birthday, and to celebrate, I thought I'd grab this meme I saw over at Jill's blog.

1. He's sitting in front of the TV, what is on the screen? baseball, basketball, or Survivor

2. You're out to eat; what kind of dressing does he get on his salad? Ranch or raspberry vinaigrette

3. What's one food he doesn't like? avocado (so sad, but at least I can hog the guacamole that way!)
4. You go out to the bar. What does he order? We don't go to the bar. Other than water, he drinks Coke or IBC Root Beer.

5. Where did he go to high school? Grand Rapids, Michigan
6. What size shoe does he wear? 10
7. If he was to collect anything, what would it be? Eric is not a collector, really. He does save all his pheasant feathers, though. Thankfully, he's gotten rid of most of his baseball cards.

8. What is his favorite type of sandwich? at home--PB+J; out and about--Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki from Subway

9. What would this person eat every day if he could? A Scotcheroo bar (or 2 or 3)
10. What is his favorite cereal? Fruit Harvest, Frosted Flakes, Frosted Mini Wheats
11. What would he never wear? pink, a V-neck shirt, or a tie =)

12. What is his favorite sports team? Being from Michigan, he's loyal to the U of M Wolverines and the Detroit Tigers.

13. Who will he vote for? We feel they're making it a tough decision.
14. Who is his best friend? Me (Right?!)
15. What is something you do that he wishes you wouldn't do? worry

16. How many states has he lived in? Three: Michigan, Indiana and Iowa
17. What is his heritage? Dutch and Swedish
18. You bake him a cake for his birthday; what kind of cake? Better-than-almost-anything cake =) (That's what the Betty Crocker box calls it!)

19. Did he play sports in high school? Yes, baseball, basketball, soccer and golf (Eric's dad is a gym teacher, and the whole family is incredibly athletic!)
20. What could he spend hours doing? Fishing and hunting

Hayley said...

What?!? Carrie worry?!?!? LOL!!!! Fun to get to know Eric a bit better!

Hayley said...

Also, I'd just like to throw this link out there...I hope that's okay. It's a well written post on ALL Presidential Candidates.

Hope that was okay to post!
I, personally, have a Chuck Baldwin sign in my yard.

I'm glad to know that I know my brother pretty well as I think I could have answered almost all of those questions correctly for him!! That's such a cute picture of your "boys"! Sounds like Eric had a great birthday...nice job helping him celebrate!

Tracy said...

How fun! Chad is from an athletic family, too. I'm the outcast for sure!

Fun idea Carrie - never heard of a Scotcheroo Bar before!

Talk to you soon -

Kendra said...

Very fun! Thinking of Eric wearing pink really made me laugh. I'm guessing Eric disproves of Marc's outfit in the picture on my blog today then! :)

Hope you have fun at the concert tonight!

Cute little meme! Happy Birthday Eric!

Fun post! :-) I love raspberry vinegarette too...yum! I never ever liked avocado...until I tried it ~ this past summer! Now I love to mash it up with some garlic salt and add tomatos....and eat with some tortilla chips ~ double yum! Hope the birthday was a fun one!

Okay, I'm cracking up right now over what Eric would never wear - those three things would top my husband's list also, along with turtlenecks (unless they're worn for warmth while hunting, of course). Oh, and he also saves all his pheasant feathers. We're pretty creative about decorating with them around the house.
