Re: what are your favorite pizza topping/s?

I know I don't like thin crust, and I'm not into pizzas with alternative sauces like bbq or alfredo sauce. BUT, any topping on tomato pizza sauce on a hand tossed or deep dish crust is a go! We always get the works on a pizza :)

Re:

Funny how this thread popped up again. Yesterday a coworker came and told me that she's 18 weeks along, and she wanted to tell me before I start wondering about her protruding belly! I honestly had not noticed her increasing belly size because she always wore loose flowy tunic styles due to her body...

Re: Why having daughters is better than having sons

My son said he can provide financial support to my daughter who can actually be our caregiver. I actually asked them about this loaded question when I saw this thread, bless their hearts, they are only 12 and 10!

Re: Do you eat fast food? How often and what?

I eat fast food (the kind with drive thru) about 1X or 2X a month. My fast food choice is usually of the healthy variety, el pollo loco, or some type of grilled chicken salad Lately I've discovered Flame-broiler.

Re: Moms, is this okay for your 12-yr old son to watch?

I have a 12 year old son who takes music lessons and I would not be happy if that was shown to him during his lesson. If I happened to watch it with him at home by accident it would be no big deal because if he asked about it I could explain. My son takes lessons in a similar manner that you teach,...

Re: Setting Remorse?

I have been thinking of a custom cushion halo for my round stone, with a plain shank.....got a quote from Victor Canera, then chickened out. I'm afraid of not loving the look since I really love simplicity, and it would be a pricey mistake!

Setting Remorse?

Have you ever purchased an expensive setting, or had one custom made, and then decided you didn't like it at all? I purchased an expensive Ritani setting once, and then decided the sidestones were too big and overpowered the center. Bought it for $3100, and sold it for about half the price! I am com...

Re: What do you like to drink?

I like to drink Jack and diet, but the alcoholic drinks I drink most often are red wine and beer, because it's readily available at home, dh always keeps those in stock ;))

Re: KIDS What Would You Have Done Differently?

So far so good (crossing fingers), so I don't know what I'd do differently until I see the fruits of my labor as adults. They are 12 and 10. One thing that I can't seem to understand, is that I always have to prompt they to say please and thank you. I feel that at this age, they don't need to be pro...
