1.  Pool cover, yes or no?  (if you don't have a pool, answer as if you did).

2.  What color is your front door?

3.  Do you like to shop at thrift stores?

4.  How many purses do you own and do any of them violate trademark laws?

5.  Your next vacation: Cruise or Disney?  (Death is not an option)

Fly to LAX, spend a night in LA, then fly to Hawaii. We stayed at the Grand Wailea on Maui and loved it. Hawaii is, without a doubt, the most beautiful state.

Yeah, we did that when I was a kid traveling with my parents. The plane right is either 6 hours to LA and then 6 hours to Hawaii or a few hours to Chicago and then 9 to Hawaii. None of them sound good to my hubby right now lol.

You should check out Coldwater Creek if you need some new clothes for your cruise, Spring! It is a store I usually love but I went there a couple of weeks ago to buy a pair of black slacks and they didn't have any. Everything in the store looked like it was designed for middle-aged women going on a cruise. Lots of bright colored capris, bright colored patterned shirts, maxis and swimsuit cover ups, etc. had to go next door to Talbots to get my black slacks!

SIL has a pool service. Skimming the top is all she does, too.

I'll definitely have at least a pool service; skimming the top is about as far as I would be willing to go on my own.

I am sure we will make new friends too as facebook is great now when meeting new people as you can still continue to speak to them and make plans with them for future things.

Interesting way to look at it; I've never thought about it that way.  I've always felt if I were going to go to the trouble and expense of having a pool, I would have to live somewhere that I could keep the pool open all year.

I lied. Evidently my front door is a creamy beige, almost off-white.

Not a problem.  For 6 full months after I moved in, I would be inside and look at the dark stained door and think, "Wow.  I thought the door was white."  And outside I'd look at the door and think, "Wow.  I thought the door was a dark stain.

Six. Full. Months.  Before I realized it's both.

Too bad you're over VB. I just got a free beach towel for ordering a garment bag and large duffel for my upcoming trips--apparently they're running a promotion online. I put the stuff in my cart a while ago and kept forgetting to check out near my wallet. Imagine my surprise when I went to check out yesterday and scored a free towel! While Coach remains my go-to source for everyday bags, VB is fun for travel and I desperately needed a garment bag.
