Old School Blogging: My List of Fives (aka My Hopes, Dreams and Favs!)

Remember when a few weeks ago I did Old School Blogging Becomes New School?  Well, I’m back with some more Old School Blogging!  This link up is again hosted by the talented Elaine from The Miss Elaine-ous Life and Alison, the wonderful writer behind Writing, Wishing.  I love reading these surveys on other people’s blogs, like Christine’s, so I decided to give it a go!  This is the List of Fives.  Enjoy!

5 Things I Have Passion For:

1.       Any and all things dance.

2.       Any and all things fitness.

*Feel free to leave me a tip if you know how to achieve any of these goals!  Advice accepted here!*

5 Things I Say A Lot:

1.       Just kidding!

3.       My stomach hurts- I don’t know why but my stomach always hurts!  Now when I say this, my husband says “That’s good” because it means things are normal! 🙂

4.       Oy!

5.       You’re driving me nuts!

*UPDATE*  I don’t know how I missed this but I say “Holy Guacamole” all.the.time.  I know, I’m real cool.

4.       Croatia

    Love this list! Shawshank is one of my faves as well!

    P.S. if you have an AMEX card, they usually sell tickets to some NYC fashion shows – keep an eye out because they go quick, but definitely an option!

      If you argue a case in front of SCOTUS, you better let me know! I will sit in the galley and cheer you on! What degree would you get?

      Croatia looks amazing. I think it would be an awesome honeymoon destination!
