Four Things Tag

I found this “tag” post idea on Jenny in Neverland‘s fantastic blog. Thought it would be a great way to get better acquainted.

If you do answer these questions on your blog, please stick the link in my comment box.

Would love to get to know all of you better 🙂

  • I LOVE your answers to these! You are a fascinating woman 🙂 You were a Glamour Intern in PARIS?! Okay, wow! And the best of luck at getting pregnant again, what a wonderful thing that would be! I also panic when I don’t have a bottle of water near or with me… How funny! And I’m extremely jealous of the places you’ve visited xxx

    • And I’m jealous of your many trips to Disneyland! Haven’t been in four years, that’s my all time record. I absolutely love that place. I don’t even have to do any of the attractions – just leave me on a bench in Main Street and I’ll be the happiest girl around 🙂

      • Oh I just love Disneyland. If I had the money to go every year, I so would! I do love the rides but just the whole atmosphere is worth going for. I’ve only ever been around Christmas and walking around main street in the shops, all dressed up warm when it’s starting to get dark and all the lights are on is SO magical!

  • This is so cool! I’ll try and do a similar post myself but it won’t be for a few weeks. In the meantime, we share 3 of the same favourite foods, a love of Disney, the same top 2 shows (will have to check out Outlander. Have Castle pic on my twitter page if you scroll back a bit. Makes a great screen saver!), same top 3 things to look forward to this year, and the exact same top 4 things to not live without (spooky). I would have to agree with you also on top 4 pet peeves (though I have to make sure I don’t be too judgy myself!) and also on the top 4 things I wish I could do.

    So if I do write my own post on this, I am going to have to get creative so that it doesn’t read pretty much the same as yours!
