  1. Mimi --

    We could be RELATED! I was so excited about all of the things we have in common, I nearly didn't see your link love {thank you!}. I could exist on fried chicken, Life of Pi is the only of your movies I haven't seen {though I loved the book} and I want to see it soon! LOVE all the others you names. I live on M&Ms, I swear by cetaphil and cerave, and we served homemade pralines at our rehearsal dinner. I bet you even say the word "praline" correctly...unlike some people who don't know better. :) I don't think any show could ever beat "Lost" and your quotes made me smile and laugh. Love this list and again, happy happy birthday!

    1. Thanks! I'm grinning ear to ear by your comment! I'm sure we ARE related -- we're Southern girls!! ha!
