I can relate to quite a few things on your list, Marybeth. Thanks for sharing! I feel like I know you a bit better after reading that.

I love your list...Cherry Coke Zero is one of my favorite things too! And of course, we have discussed our 30something addiction. Thanks for sharing!

What fun! I really like the NC coast, writing, lip gloss, clean sheets, and David Gray too. Oh, and toasted marshmallows!

Now I feel like I should watch thirtysomething on netflix. Thanks for sharing. I think it's easy for me to make lists of things that I don't like and harder to identify the things I love. I'm going to work on switching that around.
