    I forgot you are a country music fan!

  2. Lisa Graziano says

    Thanks for playing along, Sara! I TOTALLY get your pen and notebook obsession! My middle child inherited this, and a recent weekend room-cleaning turned into a “find a place for 1,000 cute notebooks” event!

  3. Love your answers….you crack me up. Also, I LOVE your new blog design!!! It’s great!

  4. I have an unhealthy pen/notebook obsession too. And water bottles! I’ve been tagged 3xs so I have to get writing!

    Thanks for tagging me! I’ll get to work this evening!

    BTW, Blake Shelton’s “Austin” is one of my all time favorites! 🙂

  6. I am going to admit that Captain Jack is a little too dirty for me. His teeth make me want to cry. I’m really starting to think there’s something wrong with me that I can’t get past his hygiene.
