Three Things

I was so inspired by Tanya’s post of “Three Things” and was encouraged to do my own  🙂

3 Things About Me

A few of the prompts are from her post and a few have changed. You know, to protect the innocent  😉

Three things I would never give up:

My family, my fur baby Bailey, and books.


Three favorite fruits:

Apples, apples, and oh yeah, apples. In my previous life I probably was an apple. But since I need to name an additional two fruits,  I would say cranberries and blueberries.

Three places I want to visit in the U.S.:

Upstate New York in the fall when the leaves are all pretty and stuff, Washington D.C., and Seattle, Washington.

Three places I want to visit outside the U.S.:

England (obsessed!), Scotland, and Ireland.

Three things that make me laugh:

Funny puns, any episode of Friends, and my husband when he’s not trying to be funny. He just inadvertently makes me laugh and I love it!

Three things that make me cry:

Honestly, anything can make me cry. I am super sensitive. I cry over commercials, so there ya go. But 3 specific things would be injustice, those animal shelter commercials where they play Sarah McLaughlin’s “In the Arms of an Angel” in the background (WHY???), and particularly horrible migraines. Yup, that’ll do it.

Three favorite foods:

Good Mexican food, pizza, and chips & salsa.

Three foods I hate:

Mushrooms, olives, and cornbread.

Three famous people I’d like to meet:

Adele, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Kate Middleton. (and yes, I did notice after I typed this, that they are all Brits. Lol…)

Three famous people I’d like to avoid:

Anyone that is currently in the running for a Cabinet position.

Three books that I love:

I based this on the premise that these are books that I probably have read several times and I can read them over and over forever. The Beekeeper’s Apprentice by Laurie R. King, anything by Agatha Christie and the Ramona Quimby books from when I was a kid  🙂

Three TV shows that I love:

Elementary, Sherlock, and Flip or Flop. I just finished watching the Gilmore Girls revival and Gilmore Girls is like, my favorite show ever.

Three biggest pet peeves:

I have to agree with Tanya about people not using turn signals which is super prevalent here in Southern California. Ugh, so annoying! My other two pet peeves are people that stand a little too close to you when you stand in line for something, whether it is for the ATM or just in line at the grocery store. Seriously, back the &^#% up!! And last but not least, commercials that advertise medications but have like 50 side effects and the announcer has to list all of them. Why in the hell would anybody take this stuff when one of the side effects is “in some cases death may occur”? No. Just no.

That’s it! Now tell me three things about you!

  1. I’m so glad you did this, Mackenzie! 😀 First up, you’ve shown pictures of Bailey before but I never noticed the resemblance to Emeril. Now I *really* want to hug Bailey!! I LOVE cranberries too. It irritates me that you can only find them in November too. I can crave cranberries in May! I cannot watch commercials about animal cruelty. They either make me hulk out or cry uncontrollably. And the ones that use Sarah McLaughlin’s song kill me. I love that everyone famous you want to meet is from England. Have you read the Royal We? It’s sort of a play off of William, Kate and Harry. It’s really good. I love the food you love and I also love the food you hate. 😀 And yes to avoiding anyone currently running for a cabinet position and people without a concept of personal space.


    • Bailey is my love-bug 🙂

      Yes, those commercials are awful. I wonder if she ever regrets letting them use her song for those ads. I wonder if she gets upset too, and is like, um what the…?

      I still have The Royal We on my TBR list, and yes my obsession with England knows no bounds!! 🙂
