They are all SO adorable!! Taco is Mexican...hello?? LOL

The salmon literally came up to my chin and down to my ankles. It took me 20 minutes to reel it in and I got a bruise on my stomach from the pole. LOL


message 6: by Jacquelyn, thebrunettebooknerd (new)

Jacquelyn (jacquelynreads) | 19024 comments True...tacos are Mexican but when I think Mexican food I think of other stuff.....LOL!

Wow, that must of been tiring!


message 7: by Nicole (new)

Nicole (thereadingbeauty) What a great idea!

1. What is your favorite food? Oh, geez--this is a hard question for me because this changes so often. I think I'm going to stick with Mexican food, though, like Vicki. Tex-Mex is everywhere down here (Houston) so it's something that I grew up with and has become like comfort food. Plus, it's delicious!
2. Where do you get your books? I'm a Barnes & Noble girl, any which way you cut it. I love going there and buying online (physical copies and ebooks for my Nook).
3. Favorite candy? Reeses Peanut Butter Cups are where it's at! :D
4. Major hobbies other than reading? I'm an avid baker. Love love love to bake.
5. Sports you play or like to watch? I like watching football, baseball, and hockey.
6. Favorite author(s)? John Green, J.K. Rowling, C.C. Hunter, Cate Tiernan (etc. etc.)
7. Are you a pet person? If so, do you have any pets at home? I definitely am a pet person--I have a 6 year old Australian Cattle dog named Herkie. He's a hoot.
8. Siblings? I have two older brothers.
9. Favorite holiday? Deep down I know it's Christmas but man I love me some Halloween, too!
10. Tell a random fact or thing you would like us all to know. I'm a full-time teacher!

Wow, that must of been tiring!"


Tiring and exciting! We were on a small motor boat with a man who competes for taking people out and catching the most. He was tied and he kept yelling (out of excitement) at me, "Don't lose it! Don't lose it!" Over and over, so I was a little nervous too!


message 12: by Jacquelyn, thebrunettebooknerd (new)

Jacquelyn (jacquelynreads) | 19024 comments Oh, the pressure! I would've been so pressured and nervous that I would've lost it just because he wouldn't shut up! LOL!


message 13: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments That's right! Someday if we ever meet, I'll have to show you the pictures. My sister and brother were so proud of me, and other natives were mad at me! LOL They said things like, "Do you know how many years and thousands of dollars I've spent trying to catch one that size?" One guy, who was my brother's friend, said, "How's anyone said f--- you yet?" I laughed and said no. He said, "Well then, let me be the first to say it! F--- you!" And we all laughed. I knew it was big for ME, but I didn't know it was big and a big deal for the natives.

kittybigby I picked Earth Day because it's pretty laid back. I mean, people don't go all out trying to have parties and getting presents for people on Earth day. I'm not a big fan of the other holidays because I don't like all the chaos that ensues on the major holidays.
