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)

Hence why I've moved on to scarves, handbags & costume jewelry. I'm out of space for more shoes! Laughing

Oh, we had that.  A filter.  It was easy!

We found that the filter was just too small. If we got another one, we would definately get a bigger one.

That's great.  My parents love(d) to go on cruises with other couples they know.  Their 2 favorites were Croatia ~ specifically Dubrovnik which is probably better to access from a port/the water.  And Alaska, again they probably saw a lot more than they otherwise might, all from the comfort of their ship.

That's my door, and that's really hard to do.

I think an Alaskan Cruise would be wonderful -- in the late 1940s early 1950 my mom took a cargo ship from San Francisco to Alaska to see my uncle who was stationed there with the army - she said it was the single coolest thing she ever did as a single woman... and a grand adventure... she talked about Alaska til the day she died.. I would love to see it..

Nice......Yes, the one from Barcelona is a popular one.

I think that's the "one" to go on.  My parents and their friends went on probably all the cruises retirees from the US are spoonfed information on, some really great ones.  But my mother's favorite was Alaska which surprises me.

Alaska is gorgeous.   Even when you have a migraine!   Dh and I really want to go back and spend more time next time. And maybe (maybe!) take the kids.

Good for you about Vera Bradley, I still have a VB wallet and key chain, They styles I have support breast cancer:-).  But the bags I've pretty much passed the torch to my teenagers, DD2 will get a VB school bag before the next school year begins. 

Same with me, little chain purses that I use as wallets. My dd got a VB school bag last year. I don't like many of their designs but I liked this one.
