Hello friends! Welcome back to the blog!  I hope you have a fantastic weekend.  Fun news-- the movie I was an extra in is now in theaters!  It's entitled The Dilemma and stars some pretty popular actors.   I've been told by my grandfather that you can't see me, but if you do watch it, I was there while they shot the scene in the hotdog joint!  (Funny, though, the movie itself is sooo not my taste!)

Now, here's the usual updates and hops!

The Contest: For all interested, Marg was the winner of my Gift Card Giveaway! I had a total of 179 entries and gained a good 140 some followers. Geez! Thanks to all who entered! (I won nothing this week... Oh well... Next hop!)

New on the Blog This Week:
Forever Favorites Review: Stravaganza series

Follow Friday:

The question of the week is:

Who do you cheer for?

My Answer: The only sport I really enjoy is hockey. I got behind the Blackhawks this past Stanley Cup season. It was exciting to see them win the Cup. Yay Blackhawks! I prefer seeing games in person. Watching them on tv takes all the drama out of it. It's much more fun to be in the stands and see the guys skating around, making goals, checking each other here and there, and staging fights. My goal is to have season tickets to a team eventually!

See you all next week!

I remember when that movie was filming here! Everyone was pissed the day they were shooting on Lake Shore Drive. :)

I've never been to see the Blackhawks in person. The horror!

Thanks for stopping by! I'm following you now.

New follower here! I'm not a big sports fan and to tell you the truth, I only ever watch basketball sporadically. I like the Miami Heat, though.

Who do I cheer for? When I follow sports at all (and that hasn’t been much lately) I follow people and teams who impress and inspire me.

My answers are all over the map (literally!) but all perfectly understandable once explained. Follow me over to my blog and read all about it -

Thank God it’s Follow Friday!
