  1. I love your list! Thanks for posting. I noticed several similarities-- even though I didn't post them on my list.

  2. Wow! My mom's two brothers married sisters, your list reminded me of that. What an interesting list, we have several similarities.

    Oh yeah, I'm off to to the book meme that you tagged me about.

  3. Thanks Nikki. I enjoyed yours as well. :)

    Ann, you should do one too. I would love to read it. And thanks for accepting the "tag". :)

  4. Cool list, Gonna do one of these sometime soon.

  5. I loved your list too! I have several things in commen with you-14,15,24,38,40,52,58,62 and so many more both after #62 and inbetween all the others I'll stop!
    So nice to meet you!

  6. Boggle is also a favorite of mine. Hubby always beats me, so I stopped playing for a while. I'm getting my revenge in Words w/Friends. I also love the aroma of coffee, but not the taste, which is why IF I buy coffee from a coffee shop (not Starbucks bc it makes me physically ill) it has to be loaded w/sugar & caramel. And I think teaching is in my blood. It's the one career that no matter what I keep coming back to (whether I get paid for it or not! LOL)

  7. Hi Yolanda:

    Thanks for sharing with the blogosphere community. I enjoyed reading your list and look forward to reading more of your blog posts.:)
