Let's Get Acquanted Linky Party~Favorites Edition

I am linking up for another fun linky.  Ms. Reed from Flying into First Grade hosts a weekly linky party to get to know other bloggers.  Click on her cute graphic to visit her page and link up. This week the theme is favorites. 

Favorite Place to Shop

My Favorite places to shop are Target and Shoe Station.  I love Target because it is not as cra-cra as my local Wal-Mart and it has pretty much everything.  The one thing that I wish Target did carry that they don't....craft supplies.  I had to mention my favorite shoe store too.  Here in WA, we don't have Shoe Stations.  When I go south each summer, it's a must stop for me.  I love that ALL the shoes are out and I don't have to ask anyone to help me.  I look.  I try on....as many as I want!

Favorite TV show

This is a loaded category for me.  I have many shows that I adore.  Currently, I am into The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Scandal, Survivor, Amazing Race, Modern Family.  My favorite of all time would be LOST.  It was so smart and clever.  I was a sad panda when it ended!


Favorite Movie ( I added this category)

My favorite movie is The Goonies.  This movie was a child favorite and it still has a special place in my heart.  I have gotten to visit Astoria, OR several times to see all the places where they filmed.  A couple of years ago, I got to attend the 25th anniversary celebration in Astoria with friends.  It was an AWESOME experience for someone who is a true Goonie!

Favorite Sweet Treat

My favorite sweet treat is tiramisu.  I love the combination of coffee, custard and cake.  The Cheesecake Factory has a tiramisu cheesecake and it is amazing!

Favorite Food/Restaurant


Southern comfort food is my favorite type of food.  We have made a few trips down to Portland to a place called Pine State Biscuits.  OH.MY.GOODNESS!!! It's an itty bitty place that was started by some good old NC boys.  My favorite thing there is called The Reggie.  It starts with an awesome fluffy buttery biscuit and it's topped with fried chicken, bacon, cheese, and sausage gravy.  It is southern goodness on a plate.  They also serve true sweet tea.  That is a rare find in the Pacific Northwest. 

Happy Tuesday!

    1. Dynelle,
      Thanks for stopping by. I wish I had a piece of tiramisu for breakfast right now...that would make this Wednesday morning a little better. Hope your day is great!

  2. I just found your blog via the Let's Get Acquainted linky. As I was reading your post I see that you're from Washington as well! Where are you from? I'm from Wenatchee. It would be so much fun for all us Washington bloggers to get together this summer. I'm your newest follower now too! It's great to meet you. I left my email address below in case we live close to each other. Take care!
