The last one got me smiling - doing laundry does not bother me at all. I like the smell of the fresh clean clothes but once out of the drier and folded, well, the clothes sit in basket or pile up on the dresser for weeks before actually making it into the closet!

I love B&B's too!

My hand made aprons are cute if not a bit crooked.

I cry a lot too...last night we went to the movies and saw The Blind Side (sooo good) and I cried like 10 times. It was a feel good movie.

I'm with you all the way on the laundry. And the farmhouse. I'd love to live in one!

omg. Are we related? Thank you for your visit to my blog for ICLW (happy ICLW btw). I wanted to be Anne of Green Gables- although I was more of a Trixie Belden kinda girl b/c she had freckles(me too).

Ooooh I love that you got married at a winery. E and I intend to open one at his grandparents farm in the coming years.

Stopping by for an ICLW visit...

This is so interesting! Some of the things on FB that you can become fans of cracks me up, too! My favorite is "Not being on fire." lol

Also, if you like old houses, you'd LOVE mine! Mine's an OLD OLD OLD farmhouse. We're talking 1800's old! We're talking "my bathroom used to be a pantry because there was no indoor plumbing" old! haha

It's so great to "meet" you again.

Happy ICLW!

I love to drive too. Sadly, my dream car just isn't that family friendly. ('64 1/2 Mustang ragtop).

I loved the Nancy Drew books.
