    Hey, I want to meet this Buffy girl, she sounds like she is a character!

    I love Sense and Sensibility too!

    I just love Sense and Sensibility, really enjoyed Finding Neverland and couldn't put down The Time Traveler's Wife. Great list!

    I used to say that line, Are you tattling ALL of the time. Move to the upper grades and it is like pulling teeth to get someone to tell you what's really going on.

    Love the new look! It's beautiful! We ARE so much alike...I love so many of the same things on your list!
    I don't ask them if they are tattling...I ask them if someone's bleeding, barfing or saying a bad word LOL! :)
    MY HUSBAND gave my Time Traveler's Wife book to GOODWILL, so I have to buy a new one! GRRR!

    Don't you just love Ina Garten? I'm totally looking forward to her new book coming out this fall!

    Great list! I loved the first line of your "7 things to do..." where you said "raise your daughter" - that is awesome!

    Ya know, I don't believe in cloning but if you find a man with all those traits, I might reconsider the cloning aspect! hehe

    Buffy sounds like she enjoys life! Good thing she's found the soft spot in your heart!

    I've got the book Marley and ME on the nightstand.... I will be starting real soon!!!

    Thanks for playing. Loved all of them. Okay so who is this Buffy???

  • At 6:06 PM, Blogger Joannah said…

    Buffy is my three year old, yellow Lab. She's very smart and very protective of me, but she's also a barker, a plant killer, and she has the world's smallest bladder. She makes me a little crazy, but I wouldn't trade her for anything!
