    I am honored to be one of the bloggers you tag.

    I did an LIW tour back in 1991. It's fascinating and I highly recommend it.

    I also have a crush on the WT husband in Sweet Home Alabama!

    I tell both my boys that they are my favorite 3 y.o., 5 y.o., or kindergartener... I was sad when I had another boy who I adored so I couldn't tell Matthew anymore that he was my favorite boy in the world!

    I used to always tell Kolby she was my favorite little girl in the whole wide world...and worried what I would say if we had a girl, now I have a favorite girl and a avorite boy!
