Crazy Question Comment Game:
I will ask a question. The first person that comments, please answer my question. Then write a question of your own for the next person to answer. It can be any kind of question or even fill in the blank sentence. The crazier the question the better! This is a family friendly blog, so please keep it clean.
Then the next commenter will answer the question from the previous comment and write a new question, and so on and so on. (if someone forgets to leave a question answer mine).
My Question: How much does a typical Fairy weigh?



  1. They weigh nothing I would think....

    How many eyelashes do you have?

  2. I don't have enough eyelashes! I'd love to get some more :)

    What's your most embarrassing moment?


  3. Hi, just stopping by from the blog party and very nice to meet a fellow milspouse blogger.

    My most emberassing moment would be the time my dear aunt flo ran down my leg and was visible on my jeans in highschool!! Yupp you can laugh now!

    What would your dream job be?

  4. I actually feel I have my dream job. I am homeschooling my 3 young daughters and I always wanted to be a teacher. The only way this would be better is if I could open up a day care in my home like I wanted to.

    My question:
    How far are you willing to drive/travel to get to work?

  5. My dream job would be ice cream taster for Bluebell Ice Cream!

    If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?

  6. Well seeing as my question got missed I will answer the last question:
    We have made these Southwestern chicken pileups and love them. So I would say those with a salad with loads of veges. Or just a different kind of salad each day.

    My question:
    How far are you willing to drive/travel to get to work?

  7. Well I currently drive a whopping 5 minutes to work!! I suppose I should walk, but I can't be bothered to walk home in the afternoon when I am tired:)It would be about a 30min walk. I love my job so I would say I am so happy with what I am doing and blessed that I live so close!

    What is the capital city of Australia!! Oprah came here last year, Oprah fans might know, otherwise, google it!!!

  8. Canberra (?)(Australia)

    New google follower!
