The Bones 

1) They lyrics compare a relationship to a house, saying that despite superficial problems like peeling paint or broken glass, the foundation can still be solid and strong. What home improvement project is next on your list? I have a plan for decluttering--I know, I know, I say it all the time but I have a plan this time!

2) Maren Morris sings that she knows she and her lover can face any storm. Are you afraid of thunder and lightening? no

3) The video for this song shows Maren and her husband, singer/songwriter Ryan Hurd, on the beach in Maui. Would you rather go for a long walk along a beach or a hike in the woods? either is appealing
4) "The Bones" won Morris and her collaborators (Jimmy Robbins and Laura Veltz) the 2020 CMA "Song of the Year" Award. Here's your chance to pat yourself on the back. What's something you have done well lately? (Go ahead. We want to hear about it!) I've been baking and cooking more lately

5) The song was also nominated for a Grammy for Best Country Song. For the awards show last month, Maren put a lot of work into her look, including lightening her hair and lipstick and reshaping her brows. She was surprised when saw on social media that people confused her with reality star Khloe Kardashian. How long does it take you to prepare to face the world (on an average day, not for an internationally telecast awards show)? not long--I don't really do much primping
6) Experimenting with hair and makeup comes naturally to Maren. Her parents have owned the same hair salon for decades. She and her sister played there as children and took turns working the reception desk when they were in high school. Do you have a hair appointment scheduled? no, I do not but I could use a trim
7) Mom and Dad do not go out of their way to play Maren's songs in their salon. They don't want to "bombard" clients with her music, just because she's their daughter. But, if one of Maren's songs happens to come on, they are naturally very proud. Where were you the last time you had to listen to someone else's choice of music? (Bank, doctor's office, friend's car, etc.) Did you enjoy it, or did you wish you could change the station? the grocery store and I love the music
8) Maren says her favorite foods are tacos and tortillas. When did you most recently eat Mexican food? wow--I can't even remember

9) Random question: What do you call that thing in your living room? Is it a sofa, couch, or a Davenport? a couch

Living in California, in a town with so many Mexican restaurants, it's surprising to me how many people don't eat Mexican. Probably half of the food we cook is Mexican (and we're IRISH!)

Gee, I also been going to declutter my house but I always find something to put it off.

I remember that my supermarket had the some of the best piped in tunes. They said, "Oh, it's just Muzak"

I'm going to get this place decluttered if it's the last thing I ever do, and I'd bet it will be, too. Lol

Decluttering has to happen here soon. Otherwise, be forced to abandon my condo to the STUFF and live in the hall.

I'm trying to declutter, too, but it is a not a favorite project. Easy to put off. Easy to be distracted from.

Me, Myself, and I said...

Love that you're cooking and baking more, that's awesome!

I love to de-clutter, but it only happens every now and then. We did a huge de-clutter a couple of years ago, we need to do it again. I am not sure how this happens. hahahaha Loved your answers! Have a nice weekend.

Good for you! I'm doing a lot less cooking and baking. I need to get out of that habit. Fast!
