Mandy Lum said...

Thanks for all of the comments! I really enjoyed learning some random facts about all of you. I’ll probably do a “Fun on Sunday” post every other week, so check back for more questions :)

Linsday - I’ve loved Johnny Depp ever since the first time I saw Cry Baby, lol. Loved your “one word” weekly meme too.

Crystal - I love the classics too - Charlotte Bronte is one of my fav authors, and I think I’ve read Wuthering Heights at least 10 times. And I think we share the same brain because I really contemplated putting Sixteen Candles as my favorite movie. I LOVEEEEEE Long Duck Dong! “No more yanky my wanky, the Donger needs food!” LMAO! And I could listen to Otis Redding all day every day.

Ruby - I’m also a hat girl

Vintage - the Underworld series, Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist, and Resident Evil are at the top of my list - all great movies. I love Fireflight, Skillet, and Plumb! And congrats on Brayden Michael!

Andrea - very unique name choices - love them!

Precious - love Paramore!

Suey - I’m absolutely dying to go on another cruise! My future husband and I have talked about getting married on a cruise ship so I can run around in Jamaica and take pictures in my wedding dress, lol.

Nakesha - going check yours out in a minute. Thanks for stopping by!
Sandra - The Goonies completes me, lol. “Rocky Road?!?” I love Sloth! And you just convinced me to go to Vegas. I’ve never been there, but my best friend lives in Utah and she drives there at least three times a year. I’ll be giving her a call very soon, lol. Thanks for following!

Bookgirl (wish I knew your name, lol) - So glad you stopped by to answer these questions. I absolutely loveeeee learning things about people who don’t live in the U.S. I still can’t believe that you guys don’t have football there! Football is amazing! If you visit the U.S., you must go to a professional football game - you’ll have the time of your life (drinking beer, yelling at the top of your lungs, and eating all the hot dogs and nachos you can get your hands on)

Kyanara - you totally need to come to the U.S. and go to a professional football game too! I’m baffled that you guys don’t have football! Thanks for stopping by!

Jenny - I loveeee the classics! Jane Austen is amazing and Sense and Sensibility is one of my favs. And now I’m craving sushi.

Ms. Blasé - no problem, I know the feeling. My brain feels fried at least once a week, lol.

Shah - loveeee Van Morrison & Kings of Leon. And I live in leggings, haha.

Brandi - loveeee Skillet & Red. Red’s Ordinary World cover is amazing.

Alison said...

Funny that Elliot is your fav girl name - it's one of my fav boy names! For boy names, I also like Beckett, Bennett, and Jonas (although not because of the Jonas Brothers). For girls, I like Anastasia, Johanna, and Ketryn.

Missie said...

Mandy, that video was super fun! Those guys move better than I do and I'm a few years younger. LOL

And I don't know why I've always thought of Shiloh as a girl's name and Elliot as a boys, but it would be fun to mix them up.

My favorite name for a girl is Gwen. Can't wait to have kids so I can give them weird names.

12. NAME? (BOY & GIRL) Oliver or Simon for a boy. Penelope or Clementine for a girl.
