Four Things

Found this on another blog and thought it looked like fun.

Four jobs I've had:
1. receptionist at a salon while in high school
2. teacher's aide while in college
3. merchant accounts department in the credit card division of a bank
4. group insurance auditor

Four movies I can watch over and over:
1. Almost any Rodgers and Hammerstein musical
2. Mister Mom
3. Any Hitchcock movie with Cary Grant and/or Grace Kelly
4. Two Weeks Notice
(okay, that's probably more than one but there are a lot of movies I watch again and again)

Four t.v. shows I love:
1. Top Gear on BBC America
2. Life
3. The Real Housewives of Orange County or New Jersey (I don't care as much for the others)
4. Chuck
(now, you need to realize that if I love a show it will be cancelled soon so if you love any of these, I'm sorry!)

Four places I've vacationed:
1. Toronto
2. Mexico City/Acapulco
3. New York City
4. Seattle

Four dishes I love:
1. linguine with bolagnese sauce
2. homemade vanilla ice cream with homemade fudge sauce
3. cheese manicotti made with homemade shells
4. a great steak

Four places I would rather be right now:
1. on a beach, almost any sandy beach
2. at the Le Bourgeios winery on the bluff overlooking the Missouri River
3. snuggled up in the corner of my couch with a glass of wine and a great book
4. Breckenridge Colorado

Please leave a comment with a link to your post if you choose to do this. If you don't have a blog, pick one of the categories and leave me your four.


  1. Fun list! Hard to improve on it!

  2. in Rocheport (MO)?!?!?! I've been there, great place.

  3. Yep, in Rocheport. We go every fall with my brother and sister-in-law. We generally leave thinking that we should have hired a driver, though!

  4. How fun!

    I love these lists - my list would be so much different than yours :).

    I will have to do this one and link to your list.

  5. Mari, I know your food would definitely be different :)

  6. Mr. Mom is a great movie. I am going to have to watch it again soon.

  7. I never had homemade ice cream. I would love to try and make it one day.

  8. Never had homemade ice cream? You have not lived yet! My mom makes four different kinds every year for Christmas Eve supper. It's one of my kids fav things to have in the summer.

  9. What a fun list. You make me crave the homemade vanilla ice cream with hot fudge! Curious about your top books?

  10. Fun list! I love doing these things.

  11. I'll do the four tv shows. You know, I haven't seen any of yours, but a friend of mine raves about Top Gear.

    1. Arrested Development- I realize it's canceled, but I still watch it on DVD
    2. Amazing Race- Once we ran out of American episodes, we found the Asian version online.
    3. The Office
    4. Corner Gas- again, recently ended, but one of the best Canadian shows ever.
