Maryland is most definitely part of the south and the givewaway.

So just to set the record straight, Maryland is part of the South both historically and according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Yes, Old Bay is a Maryland thing...I grew up there and it is a staple condiment in most restaurants. :) And it is fabulous!! I have also had it up and down the coast so I guess it is hit or miss...anywho...onto the free stuff! And yes my husband butters iced poptarts as well. So does his whole family. :)

This weeks giveaway is a bit of a mystery...you will receive the above sweet little tin just full of fun goodies but I won't tell you what they will be...you'll just have to trust me! :) To be entered to win you must leave a comment on THIS post...in that comment you must tell me you or your spouses weirdest habit...I'll choose the winner on Monday!! :)

Have a great weekend!! xoxo

My hubby puts peanut butter on pancakes, waffles and muffins. Any breakfast food that you would put butter on or syrup...peanut butter goes on them instead. I still love him though.

Kristi said...

OMG! leasletters and I have the same husband habbit. My hubby MUST have peanut butter on pancakes and waffles. He also eats spoonfuls out of it the jar. We go through lots of peanut butter.

Anyway just wanted to add mine, but don't enter me for the contest, I am still so excited about the last giveaway I won from you! And still have yet to make a project from it! :-)

Just me.....Shelly said...

oh, where do I begin?? My hubby is OBSESSED with CNN....so he will go around the entire house and make sure all of the channels on all of the TV's are set to CNN so that no matter which room he's in, he can hear/see it. And this is constant, not just once in a while....I can recite almost any CNN story known.

My hubby never flushes the toliet after he goes number 1 Shhh don't tell him I told you!

LaNnY :o)

My hubby is a CPA for a big 4 accounting firm...working in audit. He is incredible at what he does and he is so intelligent. But, what gets him through the work day? Hardcore foreign trance radio in his headphones. I can barely listen to it for 2 minutes, but he can 'crunch numbers' and listen to it all day. Amazing!

As for me, I turn around in a full circle before sitting on the toilet. I have no idea why! Hubby reminded me of this one.. haha

Traci said...

when my husband goes into the kitchen he opens cabinets and drawers to make whatever he is making or look for whatever he needs and NEVER ever closes a cabinet door or drawer!!! I go in and cabinet doors and drawers are open EVERYWHERE...He actually doesnt close drawers in our bedroom either. Our dresser constantly has his open. ANNOYING. I hope thats weird enough...I REALLY want to win :)

Amanda said...

gosh i love surprises! i hope i win!

my live-in boyfriend will turn on the light in the bathroom (which automatically turns on a really loud, annoying fan) then leaves it on, going into the bedroom to "get something" and spent 15 min on him computer. it annoys me so much! but he'll loudly start complaining that "he was just about to go in there" if i turn off the light! arg!

he also must have the tv on ~ as soon as he gets home from work he turns it on, and leaves it all night. or turns it on as soon as he drags himself out of bed on weekends... arg! it annoys me to have the tv on constantly.

im sure im worse, but i dont think i have any. :P

April said...

G clips his nails into the bathtub...not while he is in it...he just leans over and clips them over it...and ooops forgets (yea right) to wash them down.

YUCK-O

daisyblu said...

I don't think it's wierd, but some people do. I only eat cottage cheese with potato chips crumbled on top. yum!

Polka Dot Moon said...

hmmmm......I'm obsessed with chapstick. It doesn't have to be that particular brand, but I have about 40 of them right now....all over the house, in my diaper bag (3 alone), drawers, bathrooms. The bad thing is that I sometimes forget to take them out of my pocket and they make their way into the dryer and usually hubby's clothes are the ones that get ruined with grease spots!!

Lindsay said...

Eric puts banana peppers on EVERYTHING. Salads, steak, burgers, pizza, chicken, potatos, EVERYTHING.

As for me, I dont eat orange cheeses....

~Mama Skates~ said...

what a great post/question - i have to enter this one! my hubby LOVES popcorn, but refuses to actually throw away the clear plastic wrapper on the microwave popcorn.....i ALWAYS find them laying on top of the microwave, instead of in the trash can that's like 5 feet away! drives me nuts!

Smith Family Blog said...

I hope this is weird enough-- it sure is gross to me. As midwesterners, we are HUGE chili fans (even in the summer!). But my husband makes sandwiches out of his chili. Peanut butter sandwiches. First he prepares his bowl of chili complete with cheese and almost a whole sleeve of saltines. Then he spreads peanut butter on bread, dips the chili concoction onto it, and folds it over. G-R-O-S-S.

But, being the gentlman that he is, he does at least ask permission from me before he does it. :)

D'Rae said...

lets see.....
He never puts anything away! His wallet and keys have a specific spot in the house and I am always finding them in all the odd places.

Kandi said...

Well, I've never heard of Old Bay, so maybe we don't have it out here in Oregon?

Anyhoo, this is embarassing, but when eating Nacho Cheese Doritos I lick the cheese off both sides of the chip before I eat it. Except when my husband is around because he makes fun of me, so I just eat them the normal way.

Thanks for letting me get that off my chest :)

Dayna said...

My husbands weirdest habit is putting honey on almost everything he eats - literally, almost EVERYTHING! Ewwww.

Becky said...

My husband's weirdest quirk (rather than a habit) is that he can't stand anything rattling in the car. It's like an OCD thing I guess. If he hears something rattling I swear he starts twitching until he can fix it! I'm glad you didn't ask our weirdest habits! : )

Mique (as in M-i-c-k-e-y) said...

How fun- today is our 10 year anniversary. Wow -we have a few between the two of us! Probably the two weirdest/grossest habits are that I pluck hairs out of his moles (YUCK) and I also clip his toenails. Now if that doesn't win me something just for sharing I don't know what will.
(p.s. I'm normal, promise, don't know why I do those gross things).

Amy Bell said...

i am not going to tell on myself...but when husband and i got married...he had EIGHT drawers of socks..yep. he loves him some socks..now he has one.with really nice socks.

Sarah B. said...

First of all my family butters their Pop Tarts also...you have to get to it quickly though so it melts just perfectly..yummy..now I am hungry. :) If you ask my husband he says I am all sorts of weird with crazy habits...the one he hates the most is that I like to use a straw ALWAYS and I ALWAYS chew the straw up front and that is how I like to drink it...I know it makes absolutely no sense. Maybe it is because I don't like to share and usually no one wants to share with a chewed up straw. :)

Cheryl said...

I will tell you my husbands horrible habits not mine haha!

He is forever messing with his nose...now I have a nose problem...that is the first thing I look at on people, so this just grosses me out. But he will either be picking it, scratching it or just touching it...drives..me...crazy!

The Cog said...

um, poptarts. I crave them very well done, to the point of becoming burnt. Then, um, I pull and off the edges, then I peal back the crisped icing and scoop out the innards, and then eat the icing last. The whole process grosses out the husband....who happens to make mixed drinks out of orange juice and hershey syrup (he is not permitted to do this if I am in the vacinity...because this grosses me out...Ah, love. (last note: I have destroyed three toasters due to my poptart kink...may you never see the inferno a burnt poptart can become;)

Amanda said...

I'll give you my wierdest thing that my husband just HATES! I've even got our children doing it!!!

I put Ketchup on my eggs. He doesn't get it. I also put sugar in my chilli, and goulash. And well I'm a pop tart butterer too!

Alea said...

Ok, my husband would KILL me if he found out I telling this. Whenever he uses the restroom...where he has to sit down, he pulls up both seats.....yes both seats, and sits on the rim(the rim is always clean and I have lysol wipes sitting next to the toilet). I have no idea why he does this, he says he has been doing it since he was a child, and it just became habit as he got older. :)

Miss G said...

Thanks for answering my question. I thought of y'all this morning as I toasted my poptart which I must admit, remained unbuttered. :)

Justine said...

Whenever my DH holds my hand, he is constantly pushing up on my fingernails which is a weird/uncomfortable feeling. He says he doesn't know why he does it but it sure makes holding hands much less romantic.

Constance The One Hundredth said...

I put pickles on my tacos. My family always eats them this way so I thought it was normal until my husband declined the pickles and said he had never heard of such a thing.

Sara Luke said...

I, too, butter my pop tarts . . . of all varieties.

And, I didn't realize Old Bay seasoning was regional. I thought they had it everywhere. No?

Chrissie Grace said...

My husband and I both drink our milk on ice!
It has to be super cold...:)

BC said...

My weirdest habit is that I eat the food on my plate in a specific pattern. I eat one bite of each kind of food so that eventually each food is gone at the same time. For example...if I have a sandwich and potato chips, I will eat my last bite of sandwich just in time for the last chip to be eaten. And it's all sub-conscious! I don't even realize I am doing it!

As for the hubby...he is the most high maintenance sleeper I have ever known. He must have at LEAST 4 pillows, a sound machine, no top sheet, and a fan blowing. Makes it difficult to get comfortable when we travel somewhere and these items are not available...geesh.

Looks like such a fun giveaway!

hautemommy said...

Ooooh fun, a mystery surprise! :) No spouse for me, so one of my weird habits (and I have MANY! haha!) is that I can't stand drinking out of glass cups- I buy styrofoam cups to drink out of LOL!! Weird, I know!!

tiffany said...

My husband will only eat mac and cheese out of an old pyrex dish that he used throughout his entire childhood. When we got married, his mother wrapped it for one of our wedding showers!!!! And, today, we are still breaking it out for the mac and cheese with dinner!

klanteigne said...

my husband's habit is going the speed limit. Its not above and he does not drive below. Its right on. The whole way there...

Jennifer P. said...

Don't know that it's "weird" persay, but every time I choke (like on water, food, my own spit---yeah, I'm not so graceful in the swallowing department :)!)--anyway, every time I choke I have to sneeze. It's the weirdest thing!!! I thought every one did that, but have since learned that--no, it's just freaky me! :)

Has anyone ever told you that you look like a brunette Kirsten Dunst? At least that's what I thought in your profile picture!

Okay--that's enough chatting. Enter me in to win that secret wonderful something :)----and thanks for stopping by and sharing your "up the nose" story!

Jenn said...

My husband puts swiss cheese on pop tarts (disgusting!) and my habit is mopping the kitchen floor a million times in one day. Why do you ask, I have no idea! A little compulsive that way. So there you go!

Lacey in the Sky said...

Well mine seemed strange until I read the swiss cheese on pop tarts and peanutbutter and chili ones! Ew! I put sugar on my cheese toast. White bread, american cheese -toast it- sprinkle sugar on top! It's delicious! (this is a breakfast item in my house, by the way!)

Margaret said...

What fun. You know the thing you pull up to make the shower come on. I am not sure what it is called. My husband always pulls it up just a little when he gets done with his shower. I do not know why he does. Although it could be to get me wet, cause it always does. Everytime I lean over to turn on the water, I get a cold squirt on my head.

I am going to give you one of my son's too. He is 3, and since he was about 1 he has rubbed the back of my arm when he gets sleepy. He still does it. Now he asks though. He says Mom can I rub your arm?. We get weird looks from people sometimes when he asks in public.

Karen said...

I'm a listmaker. Ok, not so weird...but I am a CRAZY list maker. I have to verbally update everyone around me on the status of my list every time I cross something off of it. When I was in school I would call my mom at work in the summers and tell her all the items on my to-do list. I would then proceed to call her umpteen million times a day to tel every time I revised the list in some way. This drives my husband up the wall. When we first started dating and he was introduced to crazy-list-girl I think he had a fleeting moment when he thought it was a phase. That was until I showed him a scrapbook I made when I was 6 that included lists of my babysitters, friends (in order of best-ness), teachers, favorite colors, foods, etc. You name it, I list it.

b3designs said...

My husband's crazy disorders in no particular order:

1. Crushed up pretzels in mac & cheese.

2. Nothing can touch on his plate, we use divided plates just like I use for the kids so his food doesn't touch. He also eats one food item at a time, a trait to which one of our sons seems to have inherited.

3. Milk salads. Yes, iceberg lettuce with milk poured on it, almost like a bowl of cereal, except it's lettuce.

4. He'll make a big salad, tons of lettuce and veggies, and take a package of dried Italian salad dressing mix and pour it over the top and eat it just like that, no other liquid or anything.

oh amy said...

I live alone therefore nothing I do is weird. Right? I guess if I had to pick it would be mixing applesauce and cottage cheese together. Yummy!!

Trish said...

Let's start with me...
When I eat a Reese's I eat all the chocolate off first then I eat the peanut butter:) I get a little self-consious in public, but still find myself doing it (even with the bite sized ones!

My hubby hates it when there are left-overs in the fridge, so his mission is to always use up the food that is left-over or almost expired or about gone and mixes it all together and makes a "meal" sometimes it looks okay, sometimes it looks yucky.

Sara said...

Honestly, my hubby doesnt have too weird of habits.... I am the one with weird habits! lol OH, the one thing that is weird about him, is he does not like his feet! lol He puts socks on the second he is out of the shower!!! And I personally think his feet are better looking than mine! haha

carissa... brown eyed fox said...

weirdest habit... hmmmm... the best food habit i have... you MUST try... potato salad IN my gumbo! YES! the best! yummo!!!!!

HeatherW said...

Ok here it goes...he makes instant mashed potatoes, tops them with a fried egg or two and adds ketchup just for good measure!!
