Have you seen this fun survey making the rounds in the blogosphere?  I was super excited when Angie from A Mother's Pace tagged me to take part.  Thanks Angie!  I was hoping someone would tag me to answer these fun questions!!

4. What's the magic word? (prompting my son to use the word 'please')

What's your favorite question from above?  Pick one and answer it!  I'd love to learn something fun about you!


  1. I love this idea :) Great answers, i am chuckling that you can't come up with a fourth food. I've only lived in two places, Baltimore and Richmond. You should share your moving adventures one day ;) I think I need to read Tina Fey's book.

    1. I should do a post about all the moving I've done. I'd have to do one about being a military brat (Hawaii-Maryland-Japan-California) and then a second one about all the places I've lived post-college (Boston-San Francisco-Hawaii-San Diego-Oakland-Denver).

      I highly recommend Bossypants. A fun, light read that good parts woman-hear-me-roar, motherhood, and SNL/comedy.

  2. Oh yay! I had a day next week and didn't know what to blog about, you have solved my problem! Thanks!! I am putting Bossypants on my list of must reads!

    1. I can't wait to read your answers to the "mustache" questions!! I hope you enjoy Bossypants!

  3. Thanks for tagging me! I think this is so fun!

    Love, Actually-it is a must watch every year at Christmas for me. Along with Elf and Christmas Vacation.

    I am so jealous of your awesome travels and I love reading about them!

    Did you catch any of the House Hunters Where are they now? It was really fun to see how people updated their homes! It made me want to do home projects-for a minute or so and then I decided to concentrate on getting ready to decorate for Christmas.

    1. Another Love Actually fan! How great!

      I do love to watch House Hunters Where Are They Now, especially the remodel episodes. It is amazing what people do to their homes!!

  4. I've been seeing these little surveys around. I love getting a peek at things that might not be shared otherwise :)

    1. Me, too. That's why I love these surveys so much...

  5. What a fun post idea! I think I may need to convince my boyfriend to watch Love Actually tonight ....

    1. I hope that you guys watch it one and are hooked FOR-ever. It's such a fun holiday movie...
