    I love me some nachos, too, though I don’t eat them all that often. And “seriously?” is most definitely a permanent part of my vocabulary!

    So jealous that your page is SNOWING!!!

    I want another dog too, but yes a yard is a must. I cuddle my dog when WS isn’t around, too, and I love it.

    Everything relates to SATC. Everything.

    Relating life to Sex and the City is NEVER sad. Unless you’re concerned that you are having more sex than Samantha. In which case, it’s more scary than sad. : )
