    I a new follower

  3. Ha! I had hermit crabs when I was a kid. I like this post. I have to say I was wondering when I started how you'd get through the whole alphabet.

  4. Hi, nice to meet you! Love the intro. Read your Thursday post, and I think my computer must be related to your computer cuz this one is horrible today.

    Have a great weekend.

  5. Wow. A college paper on Brussel Sprouts. Impressive.

  6. Wow a paper on brussel sprouts? In college? and you got an A? Must have been some paper!!

    Loved that list! Great intro for a new follower of yours!

  7. Abbie & Tracy ~ the hermit crabs are my DD's. After one tried to pinch my hand off (maybe an exaggeration), I steer clear. LOL

    Ann ~ awesome!! You win, the prize is sadly ... nothing. Bummer.

    Eleana ~ I'll have to check out your post, I'm intrigued!!

    Chels & Cori ~ It wasn't a research paper or anything, lol. It was only 3 pages as I recall. The teacher liked the imagery & metaphors I used. :)

    Thanks for the follows, ladies. Off to check y'all out!!

  8. Very cute. I don't like brussel sprouts either but I'd rather clean the litter box than do another load of laundry or dishes!
