Just a Few Things

It’s Friday and that means it is blog hop day over at Feeling Beachie.  Hilary gives us four statements and lets us fill in the blanks.  It is always fun and I always learn something about everyone who links up.  Hilary is always looking for ideas for statements and if you send her some ideas she will make you the co-host of the hop!!!  So put your thinking caps on, get some ideas, hop over to Hilary’s blog and let her know at feelingbeachie@gmail.com what they are!  In the meantime, link  up and meet some new folks!

This week’s statements:

1. Sometimes I ____


2. I ___ high school


3. Deciding what to ___________________________ before I ___________________ is such a pain sometimes


4. _________________is my favorite_________________

 My answers:1. Sometimes I wonder what’s it all about.



2. I don’t miss high school.  That was a loooonnnngggggg time ago.


3. Deciding what to pack before I go on a trip is such a pain sometimes.  You would think I would have it down by this time but I don’t.  Biggest issue…shoes.


4. The beach is my favorite vacation spot!!!  



  1. I LOVE that picture of the shoes and I have the same problem when packing….

  2. Ah, Alfie…..love that you used the original!
    The beach would also be mine, but there are not too many around here and we can only use them half of the year. I hope to be a Snow Bird when I grow up.

  3. What a fun idea–and great writing prompts. I will check it out, Beth Ann, thanks. I, too, love the beach–and the shoe issue– Let’s just say it ain’t pretty when I pack!

    • Oh Kathy–I hope you do this hop–Hilary is great and this is the one that I do almost weekly because she is such a great person and I love the folks I have met there!!! Glad to find a fellow shoe challenged person. It is my dilemma always!

  4. That is such a pretty beach picture. I also love the beach, I miss having it 5 minutes away. I was so spoiled and I didn’t even know it.

    • Thanks! Took that picture during our Thanksgiving trip to the Bahamas last year!!! We lived on the beach for about a year and loved most things about it—-the constant cleaning of the glass and rusting of items were the things I could do without! 🙂

  5. I would never want to return to high school! It was fun and awful all at the same time. I actually don’t mind packing, but I usually only bring one pair of shoes and one pair of flip flops.

  6. I swear I didn’t steal your answer for number 3. We are off for a quick weekend getaway and packing was/is on my mind. Which reminds me… I need to finish up. Hubby just called and wanted to know if we can leave earlier!!!! I love the beach pic…it looks so peaceful.

  7. The beach sounds lovely right now! And I’m pretty sure most women have problems packing shoes. There’s just too many options! haha

  8. Oh my goodness Beth Ann – I think I take every shoe I own on vacay and then I only end up wearing my old trusties! Have a great weekend!

  9. I always take more shoes than I need and then end up wearing only half of them. The last time I traveled by air and I have decided that that is not the way to go. I can take so much more when I go in my car.

    Thanks for stopping and commenting on my blog. I will be visiting you again.

    • Thanks for stopping by Sherree!!! Great to meet you! I am totally with you on the flying/driving thing! Though I have gotten much better over the past couple of years at packing I still pack too much!

  10. Oh, yeah. The shoes would be my biggest travel dilemma!

  11. Helen Brown says:

    I will not even touch the shoe problem as I wear pretty much the same all of the time. I can reply that I have no desire to be in high school again.

  12. When you stand on a beach…You are standing on someone’s far away shore.

  13. I hear you about packing, but I am lucky.. when we go to FL for vacation (2x a winter) we don’t have to pack. We keep clothes at my mom’s and when we arrive we pick them up, and when we leave, she takes them back (and washes them) how lucky are we?

I love your comments--each one makes me smile and makes a difference for Comments for a Cause! Thanks!
