    I LOVEEEEEEEEEEE this post!!!!!!!!!

    And PS ... I only have Mama, Mom, and Babe (hubby's) as my nicknames .. NO ONE is allowed to call me Jewels ... I won't answer to it! HA!!! :)

  5. Wow, you've lived everywhere! And I can't believe you don't eat ranch. It's the best dressing/dip EVER. I should have included it in my favorite foods section haha

  6. This was fun to read! I've seen Pride & Prejudice so many times I've lost count! I love tacos too and Game of Thrones and the Blacklist!

  7. Fajitas are also one of my most favourite foods! They are just so good! I'm also a big fan of American Horror Story! I can't wait for Freak Show to be on Netflix for me to watch :)

  8. I'm not sure if I'll like Freak Show or not....I'm not a big fan of clowns so I may not end up watching that one. hahaha! I'm a big sissy! Chicken and shrimp fajitas are my favorite! So good!

  9. I've watched Pride and Prejudice so many times that my husband finally bought me the dvd for Christmas. haha! It's always on tv and I have to watch it every time it comes on, I can't help it. I still haven't watched the new episodes of Game of Thrones yet. I hear a lot of people are upset because they really changed things from the books this season

  10. haha! Yeah we moved a lot when I was younger but I've lived in PA for the most amount of time. lol. Everyone is blown away by the fact that I don't like ranch. I don't know why, I just never liked it. I'm a balsamic vinaigrette kind of girl lol

  11. My husband and I usually go with "babe" too but if he's trying to be cute he'll call me "Eva" in his best Wall-E impersonation. haha! We're so weird. No one but my mom calls me Jul. She's my mom so I guess it's allowed lol

  12. I was super excited to see that you nominated me because I've been thinking about doing this type of post anyway. lol! I lived in Kentucky when I was in kindergarten and 1st grade. I lived in a little town called Ledbetter, near Paducah. =)

  13. This post is so fun! Mind if I copy you or is this one of those nominated things like the Liebster award? I wanted to do an Ask Me Anything post but didn't get many questions from the survey. This works! I had no idea you'd lived in so many states. Did you move a lot growing up or once you were an adult? Facepalm moment--this is the survey Brynnash has been doing on her blog every Friday! Now I know why it looks familiar! hahahahahaha Blonde moment.

  14. Thanks, I can't wait! We are going to go to Ohio and go to Cedar Point amusement park, the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame, and who knows what else. I've made a list of things in the area and we are going to just pick things to do once we get there I think. lol! We didn't plan it very well, obviously. lol!

  15. haha I've seen Twister a million times too. I can't help it, I love it! I watch it every time it's on tv (which is a lot surprisingly

  16. I don't mind at all! I would love to read more about you, and it was so much fun to do! I moved a lot when I was a kid and stayed here once I graduated. I would still love to try out a few other states tho. Maybe one day. I've never been anywhere near the west coast! lol

  17. Loved reading these all about you Julie. I have been nominated for one of these in a long while. Thanks for reminding me to do this, soon. I started watching first season of Blacklist and fell very behind. I am ready to watch it again. If you like that, you would love Secrets and Lies, also. I too do not care much for Mayo. I like Ranch as a dipping sauce though. I do love veal and I super love sushi. lol

    P.S. Are we still on for our post, next week?

  18. At least balsamic is tasty. We can still be friends haha

  19. Thanks Ada! I will definitely check out Secrets and Lies then because I LOVE The Blacklist. It's so good! Only a couple more episodes until the finale! And yes, we are still on for the post next week. I just have to edit my photos. I will have it to you by the end of the weekend =)

  20. I am near Daytona Beach/Orlando... if you ever come down to Florida again it would be so much fun to meet up! I remember seeing this tag before too... I should really give it a try!

    Oh and I don't eat ranch dressing either... Everyone thinks I'm weird. I'm glad I'm not the only one haha


  21. As a girl from Maryland, I am glad to come across another east-coaster! I love so many things on this list, especially the book "Me Before You"! SUCH a tear-jearker, but so good :)

  22. Oh my gosh, Me Before You made me into a big crying mess. I never cry and this book tore me up. Such a good one though. And yayy for east coasters! lol! I have family in Maryland, near Salisbury

  23. Whoa, another non-ranch eater! I haven't "met" too many others that don't like it. Yay I'm not alone! haha! And it would be super awesome to meet up next time I'm in Daytona! That would be so much fun!
