Pick a question(s) and share your answers with me. I love learning about my readers!


  1. So fun! Chopped is a pretty fun show too! Do you ever watch Top Chef on Bravo? Its another super fun cooking show.

    1. Hi Whitney! I have never seen Top Chef. I have dabbled with Next Food Network Star and Iron Chef America. And my husband and I watched Master Chef EspaƱa. And sometimes, we watch whatever comes up on Food Network. Thanks for your visit and for the tip. :-) I love cooking shows, ever since I was younger and watched Julia on PBS.

  2. This is awesome Kelly! I loved getting to know you :-) Question #58 - never went...

    1. Hi Kathe,
      SO many people never went to prom for one reason or another. I felt like I had to. My date was an acquaintance...I never saw him again after graduation. Funny. Thanks so much for sharing and for your feedback!

  3. My favorite color is also blue... this was fun and interesting... enjoyed reading it.. Cathy

    1. Hi Cathy! Thanks so much. I had blue hydrangeas at my wedding...loved them!

  4. Hi Kelly, what a clever idea, I just love this! I like Sarah Jessica Parker too. I have to say I'm sort of envious on how you can just spill out all these answers, I think I need to do one of those- what is your favorite thing, and not, survey. Wow. Anyway, loved hearing your answers and the idea was lots of fun! Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hi Peggy! Thanks; it was such fun to it. I would love to read your answers! :-)

  5. How fun! I love Chopped. Always cooking up something so unique. The song lyrics you picked are the best.

    1. Hi Kerry,
      Thanks so much. That song, "When You Say Nothing At All," almost became our wedding song. It lost out in favor of another, but it will always be a favorite.,

  6. That's a great idea!

    "Coffee, wine, and water" I think that's all a lady needs! I think it's be better if coffee were spelled with a W for alliteration, but "woffee" doesn't really work...

    1. Hi Rachel! You're right...woffee, like wabbits, seems a little off. And that Holy Trinity of beverages covers everything, doesn't it? Thanks so much for your visit and feedback! Cheers!

  7. What a fun idea! And I love your responses. The word 'evolve', love Scandal, and my favorite drink is water.

    1. Hi Tracy! We have much in common. Scandal last week was sad, wasn't it? I can't imagine where they go from here. Thanks again!
