What is your ideal weekend like?

Happy weekend everyone 🙂 And some of you in the United States, happy long weekend! It’s not a long weekend for me, as I prefer to keep my regular work schedule – but I still feel like celebrating. So all of this week’s questions will be weekend related. For the giveaway, I have a $10 e-gift card that can be used at the Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, Athleta, or Piperlime. Needless to say, it’s the perfect little prize for some weekend shopping 😉 This one is courtesy of Recyclebank, a fun site I love that gives you gift cards and high value grocery coupons for playing green themed games.

All you have to do to enter is comment below and answer the Friday Five. I will run a random number generator on Monday morning and pick the winner that way. I will comment on the thread to the person who won, so you can check back to see who won that way. If you miss it, I will announce the winner in the comments and next week in the P.S.

So, here are the Friday Five questions for this week. Simply answer below in a comment to enter :-)

  1. What is your favorite weekend activity?
  2. Where do you like to go for a quick weekend trip?
  3. What sort of vibe does your ideal weekend have? Fun? Social? Relaxing? Productive? Something else?

  5. Take What Hobby Are You? – What do you get? Is it accurate?

P.S. Congratulations to last week’s Friday Five winner, Rachel. :-)

    You Are Reading

    You are an interesting mix of curious and relaxed. You have an insatiable hunger for knowledge.
    However, you also seek comfort. It bothers you to travel too much and to be away from home.

    That’s why reading is the perfect hobby for you. You can explore the world from the comfort of your favorite chair.
    You are comfortable with quiet and being alone. All you need is a good book to keep you company.

    Comment: 50/50 accurate. I prefer a bustling workplace and city before quiet ones, I often listen to music at home (not always quiet there) and I do love to travel abroad!

    However, I value curiosity, relaxation, knowledge hunger and being comfortable. And reading, of course!

      I can see how reading fits in the limited context of this quiz, and I agree that it doesn’t capture the more energetic parts of your personality. And I think we’re almost all lone wolfs in this group, to one extent or another 😉

      I totally dig doing laundry on the weekends too, especially when it’s cold out. Very cozy!

      Enjoy your exhibit. Sounds quite interesting to me 🙂

    1. What is your favorite weekend activity?

    Sleeping!

    2. Where do you like to go for a quick weekend trip?
    Napa, Monterey or Santa Cruz, CA

    3. What sort of vibe does your ideal weekend have? Fun? Social? Relaxing? Productive? Something else?

    Productive and relaxing if possible! I usually have a ton of errands/chores built up by the end of the week. Fun would be ideal as well:)

    4. What are your plans for this weekend?
    Go see at least one of the major movies opening this weekend (hopefully 2), take a short trip to the beach, clean the house and see some family/friends.

    5. Take What Hobby Are You? – What do you get? Is it accurate?

    “Cooking”–it is not accurate b/c I rarely cook for myself! I only know how to prepare very basic items. But it’s never too late to learn!

    What is your favorite weekend activity?

    Reading all the online articles I’ve collected over the week. Oh, and brunch at the little restaurant down the street. They make amazing whole wheat pancakes.

    Where do you like to go for a quick weekend trip?

    Hmmm, downtown? I’m not much of a driver. I like to visit San Antonio, Dallas, and Houston.

    What sort of vibe does your ideal weekend have? Fun? Social? Relaxing? Productive? Something else?

    Relaxing for sure.

    What are your plans for this weekend?

    We are going to a comedy show tonight and a tea tasting tomorrow. I think we will just relax on Sunday.

    Take What Hobby Are You? – What do you get? Is it accurate?

    I got yoga, but I like all of the results. If anything, I have too many hobbies 🙂

    1. Band rehearsal, of course! But I love gallivanting around town with my husband, as well. Any downtown activities are perfect, weather permitting.

    2. I like Greensboro, Burlington and/or Raleigh. Any place out-of-state like Virginia or South Carolina works, too! One day I hope to take a weekend trip to Memphis, TN with my husband… I imagine I’d enjoy it (birthplace of rock, hometown of soul), and my mom’s been there and loves it.

    3. All of the above. After all, I’m in a band, so I have to be social and productive, yet rehearsals for me are also fun and relaxing since I’m doing what I love.

    4. Band rehearsal, and seeing The Great Gatsby with the hubs. Possibility for a trip to Greensboro!

    Well, it is my favorite hobby out of everything on the list of hobbies for this quiz, so yep! It works!

      I want to go to Memphis as well. I keep trying to convince my husband we can drive there in a day (650 miles). Haha!

      Your weekend sounds great. I hope you enjoy Gatsby. I thought it was a lot of fun, and of course, great music =)
