Great post, Carla! What a good idea... we never really get to know each other in our "bloggy world." :) Something you probably don't know about me is that on my bucket list is to see a game in every major league baseball stadium. I am a baseball nut!! :)

You lost me on one, I can't stand sushi, but a pig would be great.

I'm following Kaylee with the opposite. You lost me on the pig but I LOVE sushi!! Yum. Let me see something about me - I'm afraid of caterpillars. I know silly. They stop me dead in my tracks. If had to be one of those dare kind of shows and they put caterpillars on the table in front of me, I'd probably flip the table over and I'd lose. This is weird considering as a little girl/tom boy I didn't mind picking them up and letting them crawl on me. The switch flipped at puberty.

Ohhhh, tell me more about making sushi! Are you just making California type rolls (which are awesome) or did you finda place that sells sushi grade fish at a reasonable price too? YUM!

I love this post! So many interesting facts about you. I LOVE sushi too. I love my garden and love experimenting with different fruits, vegetables and herbs to grow. Pets...well, our oldest is allergic to dogs and cats so we are a no-pet household. Which is too bad, there is something to be said about a pet. Thanks for sharing!
