3 random/ weird facts about you
- I don't like honey buns, I think they're gross lol.
- I've never been to the beach.
- One time I almost jumped out the car at an Arbys drive thru because a bee got in the car. I guess it was an impulse reaction since I'm afraid of bee's. The bee flew out the window so no worries. My mom still laughs about that lol

I would like to nominate these lovely ladies to do this tag!

Thanks for nominating me! If you think your bee story at Arby's was bad, I actually crashed my car when I was 17 because a bee flew in my window and I couldn't get it out! LOL it's so embarrassing hahaha!

Pilar said...

Thanks Jackie! I own both Gone With The Wind and The Wizard of Oz on DVD! All I need to do now is buy the Godfather movies!

Pilar said...

You're welcome and thank you! The Godfather are awesome! They had a mararthon on AMC Thanksgiving day, and of course I watched!

Pilar said...

You're welcome! Oh my! You crashed your car! I hope you were alright! I tell you when it comes to bees I'm very afraid of them, even if it results in embarrassing myself lol so you're not alone!

Pilar said...

Thank you Lauren! Omgosh dinner was great, my mom cooked everything this year for Thanksgiving :)

Pilar said...

You're welcome and thank you! I try my best to be a positive and optimistic person. Life does have obstacles, but life also has wonderful possibilities to look foward too!

Unknown said...

LOL I was totally fine and wasn't hurt at all! Bees and spiders I'm like terrified of lol!

Pilar said...

Thats great you weren't hurt, and I'm afraid of spiders as well lol!

Kristen said...

okay that plate looks good. I have almost jumped out of the car because of bees. I don't like them either but the reason I don't like them is because I am allergic to them. I have never seen gone with the wind movie nor the godfather movies.

Pilar said...

Thanks! The food was good! Bees really terrify me lol I haven't been stung before, but I'm very afraid of them. Those are good movies I listed, you should check them out if you get a chance!
