Lindsay tagged me...

OK, I figured out not only how to do this blog tag, BUT I also figured out how to put more than 5 pictures on one blog entry! And Riley didn't even help me! (It's OK, Riley, I won't try to get the presidency of the BYU-I computer geek society from you - your position is safe... for now!)
Anyway, here are the pictorial answers to the tag questions.

Birthplace: Dallas, Texas - home of the Texas State Fair and BIG TEX!!! Really fun memories of Big Tex saying "El-e-men-ta-ry da-y" when he was announcing who all was invited to the fair that day!
Favorite Vacation Destination:Brugges, Belgium. I love chocolate and lace, and they have it ALL! (this is a picture of "The Lake of Love") Awwww!
Favorite color: Green. It's peaceful.... AND IRISH! (remember, NOBODY messes with St. Patrick! I don't care WHO you think you are!)
Dream career: Teacher - does this prove I'm a real dweeb? I just love helping kids learn stuff.
Guilty pleasure: Chocolate cake and ice cream. Y-U-M!!!
Favorite hobby: Playing my marimba. I even played Uncle Alan a four-verse version of 'happy birthday' as his birthday present on Sunday. WAY FUN!
Favorite Restaurant: Outback Steakhouse. Probably another 'dweeby' choice, but I still like it. Any place where the manager will come out and fall in love with my granddaughter and carry her all over the restaurant has my business!
Favorite Actress: Joanne Woodward. She has the stuff it takes not only to be a good actress, but to keep a man like Paul Newman married to her for all these years! You go, girl!
Favorite actor: Paul Newman. He is smart enough to have stayed with Joanne Woodward all these years. Plus he does cool stuff for kids with his 'Newman's Own' brand of dressings and stuff. And we all know how I love helping kids....Go, Paul! (does that mean he's a 'dweeb' like me?)
Favorite vehicle: When I was home from college for the summer once I got to drive a convertible red Volkswagen! It wasn't good to drive it if there was a chance of rain, though - the top wouldn't come up! I got caught at work once when it started to rain, and the girls helped me wrap the entire car in plastic wrap to keep it dry! Ha!
Favorite place to shop: My new favorite place to shop, that I discovered while visiting my sister in Austin, is DSW shoe warehouse! Thousands of shoes, and discounted prices! Monica even let me use one of her coupons while I was there! (Good thing, I bought 3 pairs of shoes and I was only there for 10 days... I guess it's a good thing there's not one close to Coeur d'Alene....)
Favorite Flower: The humble, versatile and long-lasting carnation. It comes in so many colors, and lasts for weeks! A real hard-working, budget-minded flower! I love things like that!

I've never seen a carnation like that! Gorgeous! 6 days! :)
