  1. This was a fun post! Surprising how posts like this can tell you so much about a person.


  2. I was tagged for this also. I must do it soon. Love reading these kinds of posts and I totally learned some things about you. Well done!

  3. What a fun post! Loved reading this! Thanks for the tag! I'll make sure I post soon!

  4. That was fun to read and learn a little more about you.
    I don't eat any seafood either. Or any fish.

    1. The no seafood thing drives my husband crazy, since we live in Seattle and there's so much fresh fish here. But I just don't like it!

  5. We really need to try out for Amazing Race together we could totally Rock it! Except you hate all of my favorite foods! I guess I better get to work! I post on Monday got something special for tomorrow haha! .......Kitten Bahahahahaha!

    1. Don't encourage him! The Amazing Race together would be fun!

  6. Those questions are easy for some but I would have to really dig to get four answers to a few. Very fun idea!

    1. It actually took me quite a while to write this post - I had to dig deep for some of my answers too!

  7. Wait---how did I miss that you lived in Charlotte?!? And the Goldberg's---I love that show, especially the real video or pictures part at the end. Did you see this week's episode with the knee high socks and he was 11? Bless his heart! Loved this post!

    1. I about died laughing at the knee socks picture! I lived in Charlotte (well, actually Hickory) for 5 years (kindergarten to 5th grade). It's one of the reasons I love your blog so much! I'd love to go back and visit again.

  8. I enjoy reading posts like these Lana... it helps me to get to know the blogger better... I like the nicknames... I had a few that I didn't like over the years... I squashed them... now I have a cute one LuLu... xox

  9. You have lived in some cool places!!
    I haven't traveled out of the US and Canada - and I've never been to Hawaii either. So I'm worse!
    Your foods are making me hungry..

    1. With your love of beaches, you would really like Hawaii. No moose though!

  10. Yay, yay, yay!!!! Thank you for tagging me. Super excited to do this. The more I get to know you, the more I like you! And think we could have some fun hiking, sitting on the beach talking, or watching Sound of Music. Great post, Mambo. Thank you again for tagging me!

    1. I feel exactly the same way - the more I get to know you, the more I like you too! Can't wait to see your answers!

  11. I could have sworn I left you a comment here before but I don't see it now???! .... sometimes I wonder if I just compose them in my mind? (Scary - I really am too young for that!)
    Anyway - thank you, thank you for tagging me. My answers are up on my blog today - and I even learned a little bit about myself writing them!

    1. I read your post first thing this morning, but now I think I didn't leave a comment (see, it's not just you). Better go back and check!


Reading your comments is one of the best parts of blogging! I read and appreciate them all!
