I actually learned a lot about you, I'm a big hot tamale fan too, love, love Evergreen, Colorado. I used to drive up there on my lunch break! And yeah, stepping in wet stuff in socks is never a good thing!

What a fun list, Mer!

I'm with you on the eggplant--yuk! My middle name is Lea. Um, what is farmers cheese?!

I loved your favorite outfit answer--that would be mine, too, except Chacos in trade of flip flops.

Okay, tooootally irrelevant to this post, but I bought Jazz apples for the first time yesterday, and thought of you. :)

I heart Mexican and Italian food, too. Especially when I don't have to cook it.

Back when I could afford the calories, I'd get a bag of movie popcorn and pour hot tamales and/or jr mints and/or reeses pieces on top. A little salt and sweet never hurt anyone.

I got My Friend Mandy for Christmas in 3rd grade. :) I still have her. And I also got my friend Jenny. But Mandy was my fave. What a great memory for me this a.m.

Your pet peeve cracks me up. I so agree.

Lurve me some Dr. Pepper, too.

I love posts like these every now and then because it's fun to learn little bits and pieces about each other.

Gretchen said...

Oh, oh, oh...must weigh in on Evergreen. It is beautiful! Love looking at the Buffalo on the right side of I 70 as you go up the mtns.

Woooooo. Pig. Souie!

Lee is a family name on my dad's side. My sis-in-law & brother both have Lee for their middle names. It goes with out explanation that Addison does, too. = )

Yum, Dr. Pepper.

This was fun!

Susan said...

Dr. Pepper, you are a woman after my man's heart. That is his search in Germany, to see if there is the possibility that the store just might carry Dr. Pepper. We found a case of it once in a store Denmark, that was one happy man.

Jennifer said...

Great post! We had quite a few things in common. :) I just did this over at my blog and referenced you.

Betsy said...

Wow! I feel like I know so much more about you now! :)

I love Italian and Mexican food too. Carrabas is one of our regular hangouts! We love it!

I've never heard of Evergreen, Colorado, but I'm interested in knowing more. You live in such a beautiful state--it must be extra gorgeous in Evergreen!

Jenn said...

Fun post - I loved learning more about you! :o)

Your favorite sandwich sounds yummy. Dr. Pepper (the best ever!) and as we have discussed - adding a little vanilla makes it heavenly. Oh Italy - oh how I love it!!!

As I am typing I am listening to Jared Anderson's on his my space page. I had never heard of him. I think I am going to bookmark his site. So far I really like his sound. Thanks for the tip! :o)

PS- I may borrow this MEME sometime if it is okay.
