    Congrats on your award.

    Hmm, a winter-lover. I’m a 72 degree guy, myself. It’s what prompted us to move to the North – okay, northern San Diego county. 🙂

    I love your index card style. And Amazon is the best, isn’t it? I could almost hole up in the house and live off of Amazon, I think.

      Hi, MJ. Thanks…and thanks so much for stopping by.

      I could totally get into 72 degree weather. In fact, I love it. That’s a perfect summer day for me. However, in Michigan, we’re not often gifted with that temperature. Today, for instance, it’s 92, with 42% humidity (could be worse, though..it could be 100%!). So yes, I would take winter and windchills over this any day. 🙂

      And yes…I LOVE Amazon. I have a bank account just for that. And I use it regularly. As for the index cards, I love those, too. I’ve found they simplify my life…as opposed to the mile long lists I used to make. 🙂

    Congrats, Kristy.
    I hate shopping too, which past boyfriends have always loved me for 🙂
    Maine is on my list as well, think it’s because of Stephen King.

      Thanks, Emma! (fellow shopping-hater 🙂 )

      I don’t think Stephen King is a draw for me. I couldn’t dry off in the shower for months after watching IT (threw the book away after 5 pages). I think it’s more to do with the coastline…especially in stormy weather. I don’t know why, but I’ve always wanted to see that…from a safe distance, of course. 🙂

    Congratulations, Kristy!!!! You totally deserve this award! My kids absolutely LOVE the hallmark store. If you want to have your groceries sent to your home have you ever looked into the home delivery that some of the larger chains offer. I did that when I was pregnant.

      Thanks, Debra! Your kids have great taste in stores! Hmm about the delivery service. One of these days I may check into that. Except I always have to get water refills. I don’t see too many delivery boys being thrilled at the thought of hauling 3-five gallon jugs two or three times a week. 🙂 The inmates in my zoo are probably the only animals on the planet who drink bottled water, LOL. 🙂

    fun and enjoyable post as usual. need to leave the room soon so Michele won’t repeat her comment on fb, “a nap sounds good to me too. Living with these recycled teenagers and their allnighters is killing me” wonder who she was talking about? 🙂

      Thanks, Jaki! Hmm…I wonder who she could be talking about, too. 🙂

      I need another nap. Can’t wait until Monday so I can catch up on sleep again. 🙂

    I hate shopping too, especially grocery shopping, I have no idea why, I just do, and I’m not just a disgrace to my gender, but I’m especially embarrassing to the other women in my family who all live for shopping. Great post.

      Oh I know what you mean, Katrina! I am related to a number of women who LOVE to shop. In fact, they make events out of it…ALL DAY…at Christmas. Every year. It just makes me cringe to think about it. Yuck! 🙂

    ” If it doesn’t fit on the card, I’m not buying it!”
    Kristy, you crack me up girl! LOL! That is hilarious!
    Okay, seriously, I so relate to you. I’d rather layer clothing than sweat and swat mosquitoes thank you. We must be around the same age.
    Congratulations on your Sunshine award! I felt the rays beaming from your post today! You deserve it! 🙂

      Thanks, Karen! 🙂

      The index card thing is a little weird, isn’t it? 🙂 Glad I’m not the only one who prefers sweaters over bugs and sweltering temps. As for the age, I’ve turned twenty-nine a number of times now so it’s entirely possible.

    Congrats Kristy! And great to get to know you better. I love Amazon for shopping but I still love to get out shopping as well. LOL! And isn’t Hallmark THE BEST!! Love those stores….
    I’m off to get to know some new bloggers…squeeee…
    Have a FAB weekend!

      Hi Natalie, love your name and I’d like to know more bloggers too. Love shopping but not in stores. Only exceptions was when I was in Hawaii with our concert choir. I loved all the little gift shops there. Kristy has been the most help in getting me to use this venue for some of my writing. I’ll be visiting your blog soon thanks to Kristy introducing you to me.

      Thanks, Natalie. I’m enjoying getting to know you better, too. I wish I loved to shop, since I have to do so much of it, but I’ll just let you enjoy it for me.

      Yes, Hallmark stores ARE the best. I can waste more time reading their cards…it’s pitiful, LOL. You have a great weekend, too. I’m off to check out a car show shortly. Last night was a birthday party and fireworks….I need a nap. 🙂
