question game

There are several blogs that I (Major Moma) like to randomly visit but there are a few that draw me back again and again ... even when I am not an official "follower".  Luvinthemommyhood is one of those that keep calling me back.  Other than the fact she makes pretty things, I think the main reason is she is from the same geographical region I grew up in.  And when she posts pictures of her family out and about, I feel at home again.
So, all that being said, Shannon of luvinthemommyhood has something fun going on right now that I thought we should participate in.  She listed a bunch of sentences telling about herself, and then fellow bloggers are to take those sentences and change the bolded words.  Finally, we go back to her sight and in the comments place a link to our blog so all of us can get to know each other.  You know, pretend we all are friends ... I love it!
I convinced my co-bloggers to participate.  And now even the Winocologist has joined in!  Since we are a joint blog, I thought it would be fun if we added our own twist.  I changed the bold to a blank and then below the statement, we each answered the questions with a color code.
