  1. mmmmmmmmm...pride and prejudice.....haven't seen that in a long time. Might just have to pop that in tonight!

  2. Vicki, I was thinking the same thing. It's been too long since I've seen it!

  3. Thank you for sharing these. I definitely do need to watch Pride and Prejudice from beginning to finish. :)

  4. Sandy, P & P is long, and sometimes I fast forward through some parts. But never through the white shirt scene!

  5. I enjoyed reading your answers, Julie. And yes, they are very EXCITING. My favorite: Each day is a blessing (So true!).

    Thanks for keeping it are one amazing woman:) Tory

  6. What a fun post! Isn't it amazing how much you can learn about someone in just three words/sentences? I might have to steal this idea for my own blog...even though you didn't tag me. Can I pretend that you tagged me? :)

  7. A published book! Yes please. I'll find some local photos - Welcome to Australia. Talk soon, Simon.

  8. Julie! That's so cool! Thank you for thinking of me. I will definitely do it, maybe next Monday since tomorrow's post is kind of long already...

  9. Fun post! I haven't read My Sisters Keeper but I loved the movie. I should read it! I agree with Simon, yes please on the published book.:)

  10. Mr Darcy doesn't do a thing for me :-)

    Loved your answers though!

  11. Great answers. I love that version of P&P too. :)

  12. Very nice to learn more about you! I've never seen the Proposal. I'll have to rent it. Who can't love a movie with Betty White in it?!

  17. I had the Grease vinyl album too!! Even brought it in for show and tell once day in elementary school. (I had no idea it had bad words in some of the songs) Ooops.

  18. Jennifer, I didn't realize the album had bad words on it until muuuuch later!

  19. I loved this post. So cute and cleaver. Amazing how much you can tell about someone's personality by learning about 3 things.
    I will check out her blog and be back to yours for more fun updates!
