1. Would you rather be too hot or too cold? Why?
I have lived in Minnesota where it gets -30F below zero, and I have lived in TN where it gets 110F. I would rather be cold! I can warm up, but it's so much harder to cool off. Also, I look like sh*t when I get hot. My hair goes flat, I turn beet red, and I sweat like a pig. Not attractive at all.

2. What's your favorite way to stay cool?
Get naked and lounge at home.

3. What's your favorite way to stay warm?
I never struggle to get warm- even in winter. I am incredibly hot-natured. I refuse to wear a coat or boots in the winter.

4. When you see or hear the word "summer," what comes to mind?
Hell.

5. Any major summer plans this year? (other than having a baby)
Not having any more nervous breakdowns or medical issues

1. Would you rather be too hot or too cold? Why? I'd rather be too cold, hands down. We used DH's base of preference in a fit of desperation to get out of Florida and we couldn't be more happy about leaving the heat behind! It does still get hot here, but its only 2 months of heat versus 9 and I can't wait for a real winter. You can always add layers, but public nudity is frowned upon.
2. What's your favorite way to stay cool?Um, me and the air conditioner are good friends for now since other options are limited during pregnancy. Once Ava is here we're going to get out and explore some of the amazing lakes around us.
3. What's your favorite way to stay warm?I haven't really needed a heat source in 20 some years, I'll have to figure something out this winter!
4. When you see or hear the word "summer", what comes to mind?BBQs, get togethers, just fun times in general.
5. Any major summer plans this year? (other than having a baby)Nope, pretty boring summer planned for us.

1. Would you rather be too hot or too cold? Why?

To hot! I can jump in the pool or go in ac or something like that but idk if it's because I'm so small or what but when I get cold it doesn't matter what I do I am chilled to the bone for what seems like days!

2. What's your favorite way to stay cool?

Swimming I love the water!

3. What's your favorite way to stay warm?

Under my fuzzy blankie cuddling with my SO he is like my personal space heater. Ironically his body heat is what brought us together and lead us to date and now here we are lol. I love it.

4. When you see or hear the word "summer", what comes to mind?

Flowers, beaches, bonfires, friends, barbecue, and good memories.

5. Any major summer plans this year? (other than having a baby )

Just surviving, staying cool, and growing a human!

1. Would you rather be too hot or too cold? Why?
Too cold, because it's illegal to take off clothes in public places , and putting more on is easier.
2. What's your favorite way to stay cool?
Stay out of the heat
3. What's your favorite way to stay warm?
Snuggle in my mink blanket.
4. When you see or hear the word "summer", what comes to mind?
Kids home from school, screaming, pool, days where I want to rip my hair out , days where I wish that I was a kid again.
5. Any major summer plans this year? (other than having a baby )
Nope, just hoping that my best friend can make it down here in a couple of weeks in time for the baby to be born. And that my dad can come and visit before the kids start school (unlikely since they start beginning of August and his fiance doesn't want him to leave her side).

When pregnant, I'd rather be too cold... the heat makes my nausea worse. When not pregnant, I'd rather be too hot as I hate the cold!

2. What's your favorite way to stay cool?
Strip off, fans, swimming.

3. What's your favorite way to stay warm?
Blankets! Or some sort of heating.

4. When you see or hear the word "summer", what comes to mind?
Warm weather, swimming, beach holidays/camping, the smell of mowed grass, ice creams, BBQ's, Christmas, family.

5. Any major summer plans this year? (other than having a baby)
I'm going into winter at the mo. Next summer we have DH's grandfather coming to visit from England, plus a camping holiday booked.
