Sorry, sometimes I forget my Anglo-Irish-Welsh-French roots and believe I was born in Spain. 

Sometimes I'm even positive I grew up here...
 What other explanation could there be for thinking, dreaming, and leaving comments in Spanish?

I can't think of a one.

Thanks for indulging me.

Cinquenta or fifty.

I don't know any Spanish but I visited there once, does that qualify me? ;)

Hello Andrea...welcome to the country!! If you moved from the city to the country then I know you appreciate the peace and quiet. We moved from the city to a small town here in Kansas but the beautiful Victorian we bought was on a busy street (which was quiet every time we drove the 20 something miles to view the house!) and a train never went by until every thing was signed and sealed and we were waiting for the termite inspector to arrive! Now after 9 months in that beautiful huge house we sold it and bought our little run down farm cottage. Oh how we LOVE the peace and quiet of the country. Now nearly 9 months after moving here...we still appreciate that beautiful silence. Will 'una cerveza, por favor!' get me entered into your contest? If so...then please count me in! Take care.
I hope you'll stop by and say Hi and enjoy the country here in Kansas.

I was going to comment and then realized I wasn't a follower yet. Fixed that right away...
Ok, we used to live in El Paso (which is almost Mexico) but I really don't remember a lot of the words. How about uno, dos, tres...
I have also been to Spain once, but that was when I was 16 years old. A loooong time ago... My second language (or actually my first, since I was born and raised there) is German and we are trying very hard to make sure our girls are fluent in that as well.

A caballo regalado no le mires el diente!

LOVE that castle... surely you're going to tell us where it is. Andalucia perhaps? My daughter use to say that she was going to be a great chef on the east coast of spain and have a house on the sea. Of course there was going to be a separate cottage for me where I could come and stay as long as I wished! The phrase "vida hermosa" would sum it up! (My spanish isn't good at all, but a translator sure helps!)

And I would love to be entered in your drawing for the "Farm Chicks" necklace. It's darling!

Congratulations! My neice's husband is Cuban, Spanish is his language. I am their Tia and when we visit family on a farm, he says we are going "en el campo" {in the countryside}. So happy the children will be trilingual.

I think we are among the few who actually wish for snow! Oh is winter, and snow is so much nicer than mud. And so...J'aime la neige. (rusty, college French!)

I love the Farm Chicks! Such a cute name, too. Spanish? Hmmmmm - high school was a long time ago, but my granddaughter watches Dora the Explorer; so I'd have to say HOLA!

Girl Tornado said...

This is just the cutest necklace, and since I'm a farm chick at heart, I would adore it! I took French in high school, but I guess I do know a lil bit of Spanish... mi casa es tu casa. I think I got it right. LOL

I would follow you anywhere!! My favorite Spanish phrase was "Es Suzanna en casa?" because it was the only one I could remember! :)
Love ya!
