Four places I’d rather be:
Hmm. I like where I’m at, thank you very much. But I wish you were here. (And you know who “you” are--don’t you?) However, I will give you

Four places I’d like to go:
1) Connecticut
2) Utah
3) Florida

If you've read this far and haven't been tagged already--then you're it!

p.s. Anyone interested in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows for our summer read? Make your opinion known. Other titles for your consideration--The Ladies' Auxilliary, Five Quarters of the Orange, or The Eyre Affair.

That "Oscar!" part is my favorite too!

Suzanne said...

Did you know that there is a Lamppost Pizza in Texas? The owner is the brother of the Lamppost Pizza owner in California.

Elizabeth-W said...

I think Pipi must have been the first foreign film I'd ever seen. I had completely forgotten about her. I may have to netflix her!
I would do Harry Potter. I've read 5 quarters, and really liked it, and Ladies', too.

Brillig said...

Haha. I'm painfully familiar with U-hall in Des. Towers, Hobble Creek canyon, and Provo in general, but a pink house? Hmmm.... Sounds lovely...

Azúcar said...

The Eyre Affair is so clever and charming.

Kimberly said...

I looooved Pippi! Rented it a few weeks ago, but Emma and Becca weren't impressed. =P Neat Meme!

And The Eyre Affair sounds interesting...haven't heard of it...

No Cool Story said...

Hello there~!
I am all about Harry P. I am almost done, but now I'm really trying to read it as slowly as humaly possible.
It must never end.

wynne said...

Ah, Pippi...it's been years...

As for the book, it can be anything, I'll read it!

Dedee said...

Um, does it count as summer reading if I've already read it twice?

Nice to see you!

elasticwaistbandlady said...

And now you stand alone as the only woman in the entire world to list 'Fletch' as one of their favorite movies. Maybe you should get a special Chevy Chase Award for that.

Jennifer B. said...

Pippi, I am honored by your visit.

Suzanne,I feel sorry for the other 48 states.

Elizabeth, I'm deciding between Potter and The Eyre Affair (Jasper Fforde)

Brillig, it was lovely. I met my husband while living there.

Azucar, your endorsement is tipping the scales.

Kimberly, the first time I showed it no one was impressed. But my youngest boys kept putting it on and now the whole family is hooked on Pippi's kooky ways.

NCS, I know what you mean. Enjoy those lase chapters!

Wynne! Yea! Nice to see you. Hope your house is coming along.

Dedee, Sure it counts--double!

EWL, I had no idea. Is this a bad thing? Maybe I should be checked out. I'll have to ask Dr. Rosenrosen.

Tylershark said...

I almost forgot about "Oscar!" I loved that movie. Also, it sounds like the next time I come visit we will have to go to Lamppost Pizza and have brownies for dessert (with ice cream thank you very much).

Natalie N. said...

Yum asparagus soup! I'll have to try that. I'm such a sucker for good soup. Now to convince Clark to take me... :)

Jennifer B. said...

Tyler, it's a deal!

Natalie, Thanks for visiting my blog =) I'm going to contact the restaurant and see if I can get the recipe. It is seriously out of this world!

Carrot Jello said...

I just started New Moon. Have you read it?

Anonymous said...

hi jen: the soups sound totally yummy and heavenly. i, too, enjoy the office and last comic standing. this was fun but i cried my eyes out that i didn't make it to your blog read list! tee hee :) kathleen

Jennifer B. said...

Carrot, nope. How do you like it so far?

Grateful, the soups are wonderful. I was going to list four different blogs each day, but I just changed it. Dry your eyes. =)

b. said...

I used to live at the mouth of Hobble Creek. My hoss was born and raised there. Beautiful drive up there.
I love asparagus soup.
I loved reading about you!

jen: "how will i live?" ... music fades. ha

thanks for the email, you silly girl. you are a sweetie, you know that?

happy friday, kathleen :)

Thoroughly Mormon Millie said...

Yay, a fellow Fletch fan! We're so hard to find nowadays! :)

Michelle S. said...

Jen do you remember when Mom braided our hair with hangers so we looked like Pippi for Halloween? Those were the days.

Scribbit said...

I liked the book Pipi Longstocking quite a bit, it's a great one to read to small children to introduce them to chapter books.

Karenkool said...

I wanted to be (or thought I was) Pippi for a couple of years of my girlhood. Thanks for the memories.

And I've also had the job of domestic choas coordinator for many years now--it's underappreciated!

Jennifer B. said...

b. Cool--I love feeling connected.

Grateful, You're welcome.

Michelle, Yes! And the tradition lives on--my eldest did that for Halloween last year!

Karen, Pippi is pretty amazing--and you are so right about the job. It is WAY underappreciated!

bookworm said...

Harry Potter was a great book! I would even read it again if I had the time. This summer has gone by so fast I can't believe it! But I'm little excited for school again.

ready to come up for air, jen?

~blessings, kathleen :)

Wendy said...

Jen I LOVE your tag! Its fun to share good memories. Your stint in Hobble Crrek inspired me 13 years ago and I'm so glad, isn't it wonderful?! And I don't think you're crazy for loving Fletch, that movie is hilarious! Love you!

Anonymous said...

hi jen: how are you? thinking of you.

~blessings to you and your little family this day, kathleen/grateful

Rebecca said...

I, too am the domestic chaos coordinator around here - and I have to agree with Karen - it's a very underappreciated position. In fact, I think I might quit. There really are NO benefits...no overtime, no sickleave, no PAY , no RESPECT, no days off - EVER!!!! I really don't know what I was thinking to take it on in the first place.... ;)

request - can you one day do a blog in which you reveal your kids ages and sex. I am fascinated by large families!

Annie said...

You hoo! Jennifer. It's almost September.
