  1. May not have followed the prompts from Laura but it is still in the spirit of the FGF and you have brought back some memories for me and also heads up on some new authors to look into!

    Have a good weekend!

  2. ok, from your list I have learned you love to read, not the same genre as me, but we have reading in common. That we like some of the same music, I just added music to my blog and am loving it. I love kid movies too and concur with your choices. LOVE Chef Ramsey and Desperate Housewives but the rest of you tv shows are the ones my daughters like.

    You may have went a different route but I like it because I learned so much about you. Thank you for sharing.


  3. Hi! I am sorry I haven't been here in awhile. This is my first time blogging in the summer and well my kids win over blogging every time... most times!

    2 things!

    1. We love Gordon Ramsay so much so that our little one will poke her finger in her chicken and say "This is RAW!" She even does it in restaurants... kind of funny.

    2. I used to read a book a week until I had Sarah. I opened my first book this week and I am done in 3 days. I wanted to start the Twilight series with my daughter. We love it! Now I have got to catch up on Janet Evonovich 15 and 16!!!

    Have a happy weekend.
