I love flea markets, NJ. Those things are a blast. :)

Nancy Lindquist-Liedel said...

I'm a morning person too. My family hates it. They can bite me. LOL!

Jenn said...

Wow Nj I never knew you were a Vegetarian.

And you being a morning person, well I won't hold that against you.
LOL

Great list NJ.

Have a great Thrusday.

N.J.Walters said...

They certainly are, Amanda!

N.J.Walters said...

I've always been a morning person, Nancy. I swear when I was a kid, my mother never had to wake me for school. She walked into the bedroom and my eyes would snap open. LOL

N.J.Walters said...

Yup, been a vegetarian for about 10 years now, Jenn, mostly to help my hubby's health problems. It's so weird because I had meat every single day when I was growing up. LOL

Thanks for not holding the morning thing against me. *g*

Emma Wayne Porter said...

Oh noooooooooo at number 5!

I'm with you on the various shopping things, though. Shoes? Why? All the good ones kill my feet lol. And clothes shopping lost its appeal when my children became old enough to crawl beneath dressing room enclosures.

Thin Lizzy's Jailbreak became the soundtrack of all shopping excursions and ever since? Bah.

N.J.Walters said...

LOLOL Love your shopping soundtrack, Emma! I can't wear heels because of foot and leg problems I had as a kid. They are crippling to me.

I had to go back and check to see what #5 was. LOL

Rene Lyons said...

I hate to shop too!!

Jaci Burton said...

But shoes are so pretty!

And i love shopping. Not just for clothes either.

Jennie Andrus/Piper Evyns said...

I'd rather shop for books than clothes or shoes. Somehow I ended up with a husband who LOVES to shop for clothes and shoes for me though, so I have to compromise and let him drag me around to stores.

charleneteglia said...

I'm so with you on the beach, the bookstores, walks, and food. Mmmm. And chocolate, sigh.

N.J.Walters said...

The only thing I really like to shop for are groceries and books. I'm not sure what that says about me, Rene. LOL

N.J.Walters said...

LOL I know you love shoes, Jaci! I find clothes shopping frustrating. I have very long legs and arms and find it hard to get things to fit properly. If I find something I like, I tend to buy it in multiples.

N.J.Walters said...

You're a woman after my own heart, Jennie. Hey, at least you don't have a husband who complains about you shopping. *g*

N.J.Walters said...

LOL See we do have a lot in common, Charli. :-)

mandymroth said...

I agreed with you on all of the except the shoe thing. I friggin' love shoes!


LOL

N.J.Walters said...

LOL I know most women love shoes, Mandy, but I just can't get into it. *g*

Michelle Pillow said...

I hate shopping, too! I even hate errand running. LOL

N.J.Walters said...

LOL I don't mind shopping, Michelle, as long as it's the right store. (The book store and the grocery store) *g*

Nicole Austin said...

A morning person...eek! You're one of those. LOL!

I don't get the thing with shoes either, although I have lots of shoes now from RT last year.

N.J.Walters said...

LOL I am one of those morning people. I'm ready for bed by about half past ten or eleven o'clock at night.

crowwoman / rhian said...

NJ! Emma! Gasp! Shoes are a necessity of creative life. Morning person huh? I'm pretty sure you're banned in at least 12 states. But i do agree - bookstores are heaven on earth. At least right up there with shoe stores.

Brenda Williamson said...

I was here already today, but forgot to leave a message. I saw chocoholic and went searching for chocolate. :-)

Wylie Kinson said...

I share a few of these...
My fantasy is to be trapped all night in a bookstore with a case of Cadbury bars. (and Brad Pitt)

N.J.Walters said...

LOL More shoes for you that way, Crowwoman.

Brenda, I don't blame you for forgetting everything when there is chocolate involved. *g*

Wylie, I wouldn't mind being stuck in a bookstore all night long. But if you had Brad Pitt, would you really need books? :-)
