  1. If I could pick a friend, I would pick you darling. Loved your answers, we have a few things in common. Enjoy your day.

    Love & Hugs

  2. That is such a great activity...I am going to do this with my students!!!! Very, very cool! My best friend is the Dutchess from The Garden of the Dutchess; I am going to direct her to your Dutchess!!!!

    Have a magnificent day! Anita

  3. learned about little lilac scented northerner, who's as sweet as strawberry shortcake!!!

    adore this post!!!

  4. What a fun way to get to know you! I actually do think I know you a little better now :)

  5. What a cool list! So interesting!!! Great choice on the museum :) And I love that you would be "sunny with a lilac scented breeze"...absolutely perfect!

    :) T

  6. Love it...a 53-chevy list!
    Thank you so much for the sweetness you left for me...I was blessed!

  7. I love to read your "if". I just wish that I could ask you the why's. For example, why would you be "sunrise"? Why would you be "champagne"? Yes, I think I will try it myself. I do know that I wouldn't be sunrise. I like to sleep in too much! I hope everything is going well for you. School will be out soon, girl!

  8. Just lovely!!! Have a nice week!!

  9. Jan, I can most certainly relate to your comment. You want to know all the "why's" and I was thinking about my own answers and thinking that I couldn't possibly leave it at one word!! I would need to explain (in detail) why I chose the answer I did. :)
    HA HA it's the blabber-mouth in me. I guess I didn't get this impulse from my mother!!

  10. I agree with car one! Go the Chevy!
