I'm laughing so hard at the okra-food-drive comment! I can't count how many cans of hominy we donated to the food drive! :)

Feywriter said...

I used to be one of those who threw the clothes in with the towels... But no more! I'm reformed since reading your blog.

Fun meme! I'll post my answers tomorrow. :)

Nikki said...

Lisa- I'm sure we would've donated hominy if it was in the food storage. lol

Mary- I'm glad that I've encouraged at least one person towards the ways of better laundry. ;) I can't wait to read your meme.

Lisa Loo said...

I don't want to do the meme but I loved reading yours especially how you described Mormon underwear :0)

Julie V. said...

chuckling over the okra disposal system and the favorite zoo animal (readers need to connect to your hubby's blog to understand why I smile about the otters!)

Laureena said...

Yay for Steel Magnolias!!!! The BEST movie ever!!!!

Towels with clothes? Hmmm... guess I've gotta search your blog, 'cause I'm guilty!

Nikki said...

Julie V.- LOL That's not why I like the otters. I liked them before they publicly embarrassed themselves.

Laureena- YAY! You got it! I haven't seen it in ages. We had it on video and we haven't had a VCR in a while.

And I'd have never guessed you as a mixer of towels and clothes. I actually haven't posted much on it. But I think I will. I can always use new blog fodder.

Feywriter said...

Got my Meme answers up. :)
