Call me a meme stealer or a tag-a-long memer. Call me what you will, but I love memes. And because I love memes I jump on the band wagon whenever I see one. And most often I see them over at hulaseventy. Sometimes Im tagged, and other times Im not. Sometimes she leaves it open ended and I see it as my opportunity to join in the fun. So here you go. My meme "five". (my answers are in no particular order)

five movies you wish you could see for the first time, again

1. E.T.
2. Life Is Beautiful
3. The Color Purple
4. The Breakfast Club
5. Places In the Heart

1. The Age of Innocence~Edith Wharton
2. Pride and Prejudice~Jane Austen
3. My Name Is Asher Lev~Chaim Potok
4. The Great Divorce~CS Lewis
5. Til We Have Faces~CS Lewis

5. Abby's Pizza (it's now called Lorenzo's, but it is the best pizza I have ever tasted, and every time I go home it is like tasting it for the first time again. delicious!)

five common experiences you wish you could have for the first time, again

1. making eyes at my future husband while sitting at a basketball game-- before we truly met.
2. that first amazingly wonderful, long awaited kiss. He was so patient with me!
3. seeing my girls look up at me for the first time with that look that they know I love them.
4. first day of school - there was so much anticipation, planning of clothes, notebook, where to meet your friends, what to take for lunch, checking out the cute boys, etc.
5. doing a roundoff, backhandspring, back tuck. what an accomplishement, and I wont be doing that again any time soon!
