Thank you so much for nominating me, Angela — I am truly honored! More than that, I loved having the chance to learn more about you. :) That photo of you and your sisters is gorgeous! I am also a huge fan of red wine and Spotted Cow, haha. And I am hoping to go to Italy for the first time this year with my husband — I have a feeling it will be love at first sight. Thanks so much again for thinking of me — now I need to think hard on what my answers would be!

Reese is the best isn’t she Brittany :-)


jackie @ marin mama cooks February 2, 2013 at 5:57 pm

Hey Angela! Thanks for so much for thinking about and nominating me. I have to be honest with you though; I’m TERRBILE at these type of award chain thingies. I was nominated for something similar to this last year and I never got around to writing a post or re-nominating people. I also just did the pass the plate thing and I seriously got in trouble because I didn’t’ send out my cookies on time or write a separate post about them (so don’t be mad if I end up flaking on this ☺). With all that being said, I love learning all these cool things about you. I also would love to visit Italy along with London and I’m sort of a homebody myself. I’m very loud and out going like you it seems, but as I get older I sort of like hunkering around the house cooking and reading etc. I also skim books as well. My daughter and I have read a few of the same books and she will bring up something that happened in the story and I’m like, “what, that really happened?” She is a very detailed reader like John. Wow, how fun it must have been growing up with 7 sisters. I’m sure there was a lot of love but also a lot of battles ☺ I love Reese as well! Have a great night girl! Xoxo, Jackie

Hey Jackie…LOL…totally understand. this blog post did take a long time to put together…especially since I was almost done then my computer went out. ahhhh… I always have good intentions but family life gets in the way then i forget so can totally relate on the cookie exchange thing…i am laughing “what, that really happened” i do that with my book club girls i will totally miss a part of the story…i am so bad! 7 sisters is such fun…crazy but fun love…so even wilder that i have 2 boys! you have a wonderful night too jackie!


Erin | The Law Student's Wife February 2, 2013 at 11:23 am

Oh I am so honored! Thanks Angela. And I can totally relate to so much of what you have listed about yourself. ESPECIALLY hating to be tickled (and liking red wine, hehe). You are awesome!
