    Take care

  9. 1. Chocolate chip all the way!
    2. I'm pretty cautious generally, but once I rode in a trunk to my boyfriend's fraternity with his friends in college...
    3. The smell of my kids' hair after its been washed

  10. Love your questions and seeing everyone's answers :)

    1 - homemade chocolate chip for sure!

    2 - when I was little I used to shinny up the poles on the swingsets and then walk across the top of them like a tightrope walker. That was a LONG time ago :)

    3 - cinnamon and vanilla

  11. Hey, thanks!! I can always use another notebook. I make lots of lists. :)

  12. 1. What’s your favorite cookie? Oatmeal raisin.
    2. What is the wildest thing you’ve ever done? (Keep it clean, this is a G-rated blog. Hee, hee.) You're not going to believe this but... once... I went to bed WITHOUT brushing my teeth. I'm so rebellious.
    3. What is one of your favorite smells? Hmm... the smell of a printed, finished, polished, absolutely perfect book written by me. Not that I've ever smelled it, but I hope to. Someday.

  13. Cookie: Chocolate Chip (even the dough is awesome) Or there's white chocolate macadamia nut cookies. mmmmmm.

    Craziest thing: Sneaking off with my friend to meet a couple guys. The night included: cruddy apartment, beer, Stupak's Tower, missing car keys, a hotel key, wine glasses, a proposition, peeing in the park (after dark...not me), and being stopped by the cops TWICE. That's got Mock Me Monday written all over it...

    Favorite Smell: The clean baby smell.

  14. Hmmm....

    1 - It has to be oatmeal raisin. I really wanted it to be chocolate chip, but it wouldn't be thruthful. A nice, smooshy, cinnamony oatmeal raisin can't be beat!

    2 - Gotten a tattoo! (and no I don't regret it! it was a wonderful, meaningful, bonding experience with my sister that will last a lifetime!)

    3 - The smell of rain, right before a huge storm.

  15. Probably the Chocolate with Salted Caramel that I've been making lately! They are YUMMY!

    I don't do crazy things... unless you count trying to beat up a 350 lb. 6'4 black man! :D

    I love the smell of clean laundry... HATE putting it away, but love having it clean and piled on my couch! ;)

  16. Those are hard questions!
    1. My son's homemade tollhouse cookies.
    2. Does camping count? Out in the wild? I'm such a boring, play-it-safe kind of gal.
    3. I love smells. One of my more unusual favorite smells is wet cement. It reminds me of my grandpa. He was a cement finisher.

  17. Ooh, great questions!

    1. Coconut cookies, based on my husband's recipe. SO good.

    2. Erm, um, erm... skinny dipped in the Atlantic at 12 midnight?

    3. My husband's cologne. Yummy.

  18. Found you through Sharon! Hi! :)

    1. Cookie? Pepperidge Farm Sausalito. I'm ashamed my favorite isn't a homemade one, but there it is.

    2. Wild thing? Take a job halfway across the country after college - in a state where I knew no one. Everything I owned fit in my Toyota hatchback. Met my husband there, so it worked out for me! :)

    3. Smell? Um, polo cologne. The original stuff high school boys bathe in. Takes me back in time. Also, oranges spiked with cloves.

  19. Congrats to the winners!

    1. White chocolate chip macadamia nut - yum!

    2. My friends and I toilet papered the house of the manager at the restaurant where I worked in high school, in broad daylight. This was not a friendly thing, I really disliked the guy.

    3. Vanilla. Boring? Maybe...but oh so yummy!

  20. 1. My favorite cookie is chocolate chip. I especially love them when they are still warm. YUM!
    2. Craziest thing I've ever done is leave my cart full of groceries at the grocery store and drive home.
    3. Favorite smell is the smell of a baby.

  21. Someone won Kinder?! Lucky!

    1. I love the girl scout cookie that used to be called Samoas. I don't know what they're called now. Caramel DeLites, I think.

    2. Wildest thing I've ever done? I'm not admitting to that here!

    3. Vanilla or the ocean. Aack! I don't know which one to choose. Vanilla.

  22. Yahoo!! I won! Sorry, I get WAY too excited!! Thank you soooo much!

    (Really, I'm not elbowing through the other contestants to get my prize--not at all. Maybe shoving just a bit.)

    1. Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip--yum!
    2. Oh, I'm not telling that!
    3. Cinnamon or vanilla. Maybe both together? :)

  23. (1) Chocolate chip - the soft gooey kind

    (2) Craziest, and most wonderful: I brought home a baby from the local orphanage two months after my husband and I arrived in China. We were in a new culture as new parents. But she's ours now and I wouldn't have done it any other way.

    (3) My husband. (Is that G-rated enough for you? He really does smell great!)


  24. Favorite cookie: I make these soft and gooey oatmeal raisin chocolate chip cookies that melt in your mouth and are full of magical goodness. *drools and runs off to find cookies*

    Wildest Thing I've ever done: hmmmmmmm..... Well, my sister and I went to London by ourselves for a week and everyone thought our parents were crazy for letting us go alone, so I guess that's kinda crazy. I'm not a bungee jumping sort of girl, so no crazy heroics from me.

    Favorite smell: my pillow. I love to just bury my face in it. don't know why. But my sister's pillow smells weird. Apparently it's just mine that I like.
