Congrats on your award. I love to read more about fellow bloggers. The things you love about winter, number 3 is one of my favorites too. Places you want to visit, I highly recommend #'s 4,6 & 7.

Lot of info there! Good to know!

@Heather: It took me almost a month. No hurry.

@SquirrelQueen: I wasn't exaggerating. It was 107 last summer...not heat index...actual temperature.

@Rachel Cotterill: There are a lot of good ones out there. I may follow the trail backwards and see what I find.

@yonca: I think "pick that up" is on the top of every mom's list.

@gayle: You have been to all of those places? I'm jealous.

@buffalodick: Glad you found it interesting.

Unknown Mami said...

Take me to Hawaii with you.

@Unknown Mami: I'll be sleeping in a tent most nights. Still want to tag along?

@Rebecca S.: It does look a little intimidating, doesn't it?

Anita said...

Got the tag Jen! So overwhelmed with snow that my blogging routine is totally off.
Fun to read your answers; hmmmm...wonder how I'd answer the list.
Thanks for including me - I hope I'll have a new visitior. :)
