BlogHop: Three things you didn't know about me!


We are participating in the Blog Hop again, this week's theme is "Three things you didn't know about me (us). I chose an interesting fact about both Lou & I and then added a tidbit about where we live. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by! :)
Brooke won the Showcase Showdown on The Price is Right while on college Spring Break in 2002!
**I've been asked what I won so here is the breakdown of my appearance on the show**
-Contestants Row-won 2 Gliding Rocking Chairs w/ottoman
-Played the dice game with the chance of winning a Dodge Neon..I lost. I rolled a 2 & 5..it ended up being 1 & 6. I played the odds though!
-Spun .95 on the big wheel! Yes it's heavy!!
-Showcase showdown I won:
Dining room table, VERY large buffet, $3000 in China, a SunRoom from 4Seasons, Honda Waverunner and A year supply of calcium supplements. I feel like I may have forgotten something in there as well. Oh and to note: You can NOT take cash in place of any of the items.
Lou is the youngest of TEN children!!

This is the view from our neighborhood of the Charles Berry Bascule Bridge, the 2nd largest bascule bridge in the world.
