Marji, I loved this post. It made me miss you and all of the TX ladies though. I love reading your blog and seeing your sweet kiddos!

Danielle said...

I cannot stand when people tell me I have my hands full - I have heard it so many times!! I like reading about the Amish too.

Nicole said...

very fun, I too hate when people tell me I have my hands full! I love chocolate too, I am a chocoholic. :) Just like you I am always taking the pictures so there aren't really any with me in them.

Julie said...

#15 Lucky!
I loved learning more about you!

Trish said...

You mentioned hating buffets twice. No idea you were that passionate about them! My first time to Disney was when I was 20 too!

Andrea said...

So glad you did this. I learned so much more about you. Like: Bungee jumping? Are you crazy?
Thanks for the fun list.

Meredith said...

Cute idea! Loved reading about you!

You're awesome! I loved the list. I would never share my Godiva Chocolate Cheesecake either--you have to draw the line somewhere.

And, I did not know about Pride and Prejudice and Zombies! I have a bit of a Jane Austen movie obsession. I will be anxiously anticipating that one. :)
