Great Escape Meme
1. If you could escape to anywhere in the world where would it be?
I really, really want to go to Australia and dive the reef.

2. What song do you play when you are by yourself in the car?
I am mostly in the car by myself! [Lucky me] It all depends on my mood. I've been digging Black Eyed Peas lately, but also NIN fills the car quite a bit. And Rise Against.

3. If you had a night to yourself, and money was no object, what would you do?
Oh man... could I spend the night driving a McLaren F1 through Europe? That sounds nice. But I would need all other drivers off the road so I could go as fast as I wanted to.

4. What is your guilty pleasure?
Hahahaha CUPCAKES!!! I am a total addict. Oh, and the Of Love shows. I can't help myself.

5. What is the farthest place you have traveled away from your home?
Sadly enough, only Texas.

6. Last book that you couldn't put down?
I got through the last Harry Potter book in a day.

7. When you want to escape into another time, what movie do you watch?
Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. It doesn't get much more time-travelling than that!

8. What is your favorite local escape?
I love the aquarium, and Thanksgiving Point, and any cupcake place.

9. How do you escape on a budget?
I buy a cupcake [or three] and sit in my car with the music cranked and eat it [or them] all by myself. Or, I just take a bubble bath with the door locked.

10. Best food you've ever had while on vacation.
There's a place inside Disney's California Adventure that has the most amazing french onion soup! I crave it constantly. And the Mexican food in San Antonio is divine. And the Harley Davidson BBQ place in Vegas is pretty darn good. And since we don't yet have one, I've only ever eaten In 'N' Out on vacation and I LOVE that place.


  1. French onion soup sounds absolutely delicious! One of these days I need to find the energy to learn to make my own. It's a definite goal.

  2. Australia is next on my list of destinations too! I want to scuba dive those amazing waters.

  3. I would escape to Disneyland.
    Songs I play by myself...it varies wildly. Now is it Holy by the Daystar Singers.

    Night to myself-I would shop have dinner where i could get some good bbq ribs stay in a five star hotel with a view and a get a full massage.

    Guilty pleasure-watching TMZ. Also eating cashews and M&Ms mixed.


    Tender Graces by Kathryn Magendie-her first book and the best fiction one I have read in years.

    Teminator movies-I love the concept of them moving forward in time, the back.

    Local escape-taking a long walk while listening to the radio.

    Budget escape, order pizza get a 1 dollar movie rental. Chill on the couch w/my son and enjoy. Or buy a new book and sit on the balcony on a nice day reading.

    Best food-New Orleans had some of the best food I every had. To many to mention.

  4. I hope you win!!! This was fun to read!

  5. This is great Kendahl! Australia sounds wonderful right now.

  6. fun to learn more about you! thanks for sharing! Australian sounds fun!

  7. Cupcakes are a weakness of mine too! Now I'm having a craving...
