Hodgepodge ... Love is in the air

I love Wednesdays now .... its always fun to Hodgepodge... its just fun to say.  You can Hodgepodge yourself if you want.  Just click the button below.  And then you too can make the word Hodgepodge a verb.

1. What is something you are loving right now?

My Kindle... I'm talking LOVE... true love.  Like, "how did I live without you before we met" kinda love.  Like, "never leave my side" kinda love. 

2. Paris, Venice, New York and Rome are considered four of the most romantic cities in the world. Of the four, which one would you most like to visit?

Because you will NEVER find me going out of the country, New York wins it.  (A plane ride for THAT long?  I just got dizzy and threw up, all at once)... but actually New York is somewhere that I long to go to.  For the romantic side?  Heck no... to see Broadway shows & sing & do twirls in the middle of Time Square, kinda like Mary Tyler Moore.  Also want to go for a run in Central Park & see if I make it out alive & not mugged.  Romantic?  Nah... but sounds like fun!

On my bucket list.... see, NY isnt all about romance

3. Are you a romantic?

I want my life to be like a Disney Princess movie... give me a Prince, a beautiful gown & a saving kiss anyday... not to mention, random outbursts of songs about love.  So I think that answers the question clearly.

4. What's your favorite love story made for the Big Screen?

Hello... the greatest love story of all... (You know I'm gonna say it) - Beauty & the Beast.... seriously!  All about love from the inside... growing friendship... a daughter that loves her father enough to save him.  Doesnt get any better.

(Isnt this picture awesome?)

I will say my other favorite is Moulin Rouge... but I stop it before she dies at the end.  That ruins any great love story.  And forget she's a prostitute... that COULD ruin a love story, but all us fans of Pretty Woman knows it only makes a love story greater!

5. Everyone loves Pooh bear and friends....which character are you most like and why? Click here for help in answering this question.

Take the 100 Acre Personality Quiz!

Yep - I'm chubby & love honey... seems about right...

Wait - did that little result box call me "a bit slow" ... how did they see my running pace/time?  Amazing!!!

6. What's the best chocolate something you've ever eaten?

My mom's Hershey Pie... mmmm... its like a big, fluffy, frozen Hershey bar in a pie crust.  You'll even get hunks of Hershey bar in it... Oh my... I havent had one in years & now I'm craving one...

Mom... dad... you listening?

7. Share a favorite quote about love.

"... & they lived happily ever after"

8. Insert your own random thought here.

All this talk of love, I gotta think what to get Ricky for Valentines day now... guys are so hard to buy for.  I'll probably get him another Maglite Flashlight - wrap it in a red bow.  Maglite for him = Kindle for me.  We all have our things in life we love.


  1. I just got a Kindle yesterday for my birthday. I did a search of our local library ... seems that most of the books I'd like to read have waiting lists. :-( I'm anxious to start using it, so I may bite the bullet and buy a book - or ten - this morning. ;-)

  2. I think guys are hard to by for too but simple at the same time..

  3. Wait. Someone dies in Moulin Rouge? Thanks for the spolier!! (I'm kidding....)

    e-readers are the best!! :)

  4. You're such a big "girl" talking about all this romance. Ugh! Thank God my Twins' birthday falls on Valentines day. It give me an excuse every year not to celebrate it.
    And how is it that I live 15 minutes away from Hershey and have never ever heard of Hershey Pie? What's up with that? Is it your Mom's invention? But, my Friend Anthony, makes the best cake, from a Hershey recipe, ever! 9 million calories. But it's so worth it. m.

  5. I love, love, love my Kindle too, and great quote. :)

  6. Beauty and the Beast...never thought of that but very good answer. Love that picture too.

    Hershey Pie sounds wonderful and I totally agree on the Kindle.

  7. I was just thinking recently I don't know what I did before I had my ipad. I'm seriously addicted.

    I almost said Beauty and the Beast. After all its a tale as old as time : )

  8. OK, all these posts featuring "Beauty & The Beast" are making me want to watch it again! Clicking over to our library's website now...

    I would agree with you about #1, but my Kindle broke 2 weeks after getting a new one for Christmas! It's currently wending it's way from New Zealand to Tennessee for a return and refund. Grr!

  9. Loved all these things you shared. I'm right there with you on most of them. I'll have to admit I do not have a Kindle though. I'm so OLD SCHOOL! I don't even text. Can you believe it?!

    It's funny, you really wouldn't leave the country? TRUST ME, Venice, Rome & Paris are SO worth the time it takes to get there. Plus, the flight to NY to isn't that bad. JUST DO IT!
