Friendly flower...(again)

I have something fun to share with you today. My friend Brandi at Yankee Bell Stamper tagged me to do the list of fours - thanks Brandi!:) It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers a little better, and here is my list:

1. Four shows that you watch:
  • Castle
  • Ace of Cakes
  • Cake Boss
  • The Pittsburgh Penguins show! haha, not really a show, but my favorite thing to watch on tv!

  • Your face! (inside joke)
  • Silly (insert name here)
4. Four things you've learned from the past:
Mine are all pretty boring...nothing inspirational here...
  • Don't talk super fast - people can't understand you and may think you're weird (of course, they'd be right in my case, butttttt.....)
  • Not to complain a lot about our Christmas Eve supper (always squid and smelts - yuck!) - it'll make the dinner a lot less annoying to you and a lot less fun for your brothers who enjoy teasing you ;)
  • When the going get tough, the tough get going!
  • Staying on the computer for long periods of time is not conducive to good eyesight!
