Brenda, I'm like you! Photos of my family are so precious! I'm pretty sentimental, so anything passed down by relatives is special to me - like a ring I received after my mother passed away last September.

The Left Behind series is pretty fascinating. I read most of the books (there are many) years ago, and they gave me a lot to think about! I think you'd enjoy them!

1. I have imagined going on a cruise to Alaska. 

2. I would rescue: a. my wedding ring. even though it doesnt fit right now, i still love it and my man   b.my bible, it was given to me by my husband and two children. It has all the dates for weddings, deaths, etc. It is well loved and marked up.  c. My moms thimble case that has thimbles from around the world where she went with dad. My mom is the one who taught me to sew and because of that she is always a part of me when I sew

I already have the Left Behind series in books.

I love the christmas pillow case

Lori, my husband and I went on an Alaskan cruise some years ago. Because we live in Seattle, we were able to board the ship right here, so that was convenient! The trip was a lot of fun - and beautiful!

Your Bible sounds like a wonderful family heirloom - something you'd definitely want to save. And of course, your wedding ring is important - as well as your mom's thimble case. That sounds quite special!

First would be the Bible my hubby got me on our first anniversary. It’s the first engraved item I have that has my married name. He didn’t want me caring the one with my maiden name anymore. It’s a beautiful Bible with so much sentimentality tied to it.

second, I’d grab my wedding photo Album. Those pictures simply can’t be replaced.

The large monogrammed “M” on my wall. My mom crocheted it, she now is very ill, and she can’t crochet any longer.


What a lovely anniversary gift! Of course, wedding photos are so special. And it sounds like love went into the monogrammed "M." All three choices are irreplaceable and important to save.

1. when my spouse retires and we get to rent an rv and go around the US finding new places to explore. no timeline. just back from rocky mt nat. park in denver, CO also got to meet the great grandson, was a memorable trip for 7 days with our daughter and all of her family as well.


How wonderful it would be to not have a set schedule and be able to explore at leisure! My husband is hoping to retire within 2 years, so who knows what adventures that freedom will bring?

Wow! A great-grandson! I'm so glad you were able to travel and meet him. Our grandkids are ages five and younger, and we grab all the time with them that we can. Grandkids are amazing gifts!

1. Dark chocolate--in moderation it's good for you.

2. M & Ms--they melt in your mouth and not in your hand.

3. Oreos--ooh the crunch of the cookie w/ the creme to boot--love it.

4. Sander's dark chocolate caramels w/ sea salt--ooey gooey inside w/ the 'tang' of salt on the top--mmm mmm good.

5. Chocolate ice cream cone--so refreshing on a hot summer day

You did say your top 5 favorite chocolate things, right? LOL

Anne, you crack me up! LOL! I'd say those are some pretty awesome favorite things! 

And for an exciting adventure, I'd like to take a train trip across the country and stop off to see lots of places that I have not been to yet. One of these days, I'm going to talk my hubby into that.


I've never taken a trip via train, but my husband and I have talked about it. At least taking the train from Seattle to California and back. Friends from Wisconsin used the train to get out here for a visit and enjoyed the experience. Actually, everyone I know who has traveled by train has said they'd do it again!

Hi, Deana!

Ireland would be amazing! A friend visited and loved her experience. There's so much history in the older countries, and it would be fun to take in the culture there.
