I think I'm the only person in the world who absolutely cannot wear Birkenstocks! I want to, but they hurt not only my feet, but all the way up to my hips! I once got talked into buying a pair and faithfully tried to break them in, but was unsuccessful! :(

Love Reese Cups!

I'd just go ahead and say 40!

You and I have more in common - Peanut Butter cups - they are the best and if you get the dark chocolate aren't they good for you? Congrats on the tag. sandie

Simone said...

I just started drinking almond milk about a month ago, after being lactose intolerant and I love it! For the very first time in a long while, I ate a grilled peanut butter sandwich with a glass of almond milk.

I would love to hear the story of your remarriage to your husband. That's so wonderful.

Tonja said...

Oh, why did they ever cancel AMC? It was so good and had been on for so many years...I even remember watching it with my Grandmother when I was little.

Dentist? The very word conjurs up monsters and scary things to me!

Sonya said...

I am glad that you tried almond milk and liked it. I am sure you know already how much I LOVE IT!!

I like this as a really good way to learn more about you!

Karen said...

Hi Debby,

Thanks for stopping by and becoming a follower. I enjoy meeting new friends. Also thanks for the PIN. I followed you on pinterest as well.


Secret Agent Woman said...

Very interesting collection of tidbits about you. I just got rid of the gazelle thingy in my den - it was also nothing more than a dust collecter.

Renegades said...

I have heard of almond milk but not tried it.

xinex said...

You look good, Debby. We are the same in that I have reading glasses everywhere in the house too....Christine

Kristie said...

I have worn the same earrings since my husband gave them to me...before we were married! I've only changed them out for times I've gotten dressed up (which isn't much-lol!) :-)

Deb said...

Alexis AKA MOM said...

I'm not the best with my bible versus so I had to go look it up, I love that one!

Green mask lol I love it!

Tami said...

Nice to get to know you, Debby. I also miss AMC and OLTL. Don't know what those TV Bigwigs are thinking!

Blog friends are the best - so thanks for sharing.

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

I always wanted to be a wife and mother too. I didn't need anything more than that.

I get a pedicure about once a month, I think. Next appointment is a week from Friday. :)

You should show a pic of Kiwi!

I think I prefer email, texting, and phone call in that order too.
