Sweet 'N Sour

Jul 22, 2008


I LOVE July. It seems like every day of July is a party. My birthday is in July, for one, and then we get the 4th and the 24th to celebrate too. Lots of days off and watermelon and hamburgers and balloons and parades and swimming suits and late nights. Ahhhh. July is like medicine that gets us through the rest of the year.

I guess I've been "tagged" by a fellow blogger. Took me a while to figure out what that meant. When I go shopping with Mollie she pulls things off the racks, looks at each tag and says, "This is tute. It's nine dollars!" Oh how I wish everything was really nine dollars. So here goes. Hope you get your nine dollars worth.

1. Four places I go over and over:
- The kitchen to open the fridge and see if anyone has miraculous created a gourmet meal for me to heat up and serve
- To the candy jar at work
- To the washer and dryer to switch out a load. My laundry seems to reproduce itself, does yours?
- To put new dishtowels on the handle of the stove. Cory likes 'em off. I like 'em on. Love is a battlefield.
2. Four people that email me the most
- Gymboree
- Gap
- Ann Taylor Loft
- Sparkpeople. I need some real friends
3. Four of my favorite foods
- Seven layer dip
- Jelly Bellies
- Dove chocolates
- Nielsen's Frozen Custard
4. Four places I'd rather be right now
- In bed
- Outside under the stars
- In the movie, "Notting Hill" playing Julia Robert's character
- In the book, "Gone With the Wind" as Scarlett O'Hara
5. Four movies I would watch over and over again
- Grease
- Hairspray
- The Jerk
- Bridget Jone's Diary
6. Four people I am tagging
- Oh, let's not pick favorites. If you want to be tagged....you're IT!

How to make a Great Fourth of July (recipe by Mollie Jane Mulcock):

Take one candy-bearing parade

Add a little something from the fish pond
Fold-in one bounce in the bounce house

Pour in five cousins, a few splashes and four paper cups
Sprinkle in one sneeze and a jump (tissue, please!)
Top it all off with one grand sparkle
