I know that it said my sister wrote this, but I can't imagine she would ever in a million years request warm socks, and winter dress boots.

What now, long sleeves?

Mandi said...

You rock! I must say that I too, love the Muppets, and that your book list could easily be mine, too. Now, have you seen the movie Scarlet Pimpernel? Sooo my fave. I need to get it on DVD, speaking of which.

LCM said...

I love the Bordeaux from See's. See's isn't in Texas though, sad. I did do your tag. Like I said, I don't have much else to do.

Megan said...

that looks like a fun one. Can I do it too?

Mrs. B said...

Marla - sadly, yes. I'm a little claustrophobic (but warm) with all this clothing on.

Mandi - Love that movie, and have sought the DVD as well, but why is it $16 on Amazon? Why, Amazon, why? Meet Joe Black was only $6.49!

LCM - If you need a See's fix after your mall kiosk disappears, just let me know! Do you think it could make it to Texas without melting?

Megan - absolutely! Can't wait to read it!

the only time I have EVER run 7 mi was on a treadmill while watching Scarlet Pimpernel. It is such a great movie/book it gives you super human strength and abilities!

Mrs. B said...

Julianna! Is that you? As in banandaid bread Julianna?
