2009 from A-Z…

So, we have been all over the country…and world this year so we thought we’d play a little game called A-Z. We will list one place we’ve been for every letter of the alphabet. It might be a city, a country, or a state, or if we got stuck…a restaurant! haha. A-Z is fun to play with all sorts of topics…especially when you’re on a long road trip or…in a really boring class…or need a blog topic after 27 straight days of blogging. haha.

So here it goes:

Amsterdam
Baden Baden
Chicago
Delaware
Essex Junction
Fairfax
Germany
Hong Kong
Indio
Jack in the Box (got a little stuck there…)
Konacti
London
Melbourne
New York
Orilla
Pensacola
Qdoba (again…stuck, but great burritos!)
Reno
Sydney
TennesseeΒ (!)
Uncasville
Victoria
Wisconsin
X-(what really starts with X anyway?? let’s go with…teXas! for 25 points, Bob.)
Youngstown
Zurich

Feel free to join the fun and try your own game of A-Z! Until tomorrow…

j&k—out.

    Whoever came up with this one gets some brownie points for creativity! Now I don’t know where y’all have been, but I’ll add two places you could’ve used: Columbus, and Georgia. That is all.

    I still can’t believe y’all have blogged every single day in December…it’s the most y’all have ever blogged I’m guessing.

    So, if y’all need some help: how about funniest joke/pickup line/one-liner/etc. Speaking of, have y’all seen textsfromlastnight.com?

  13. Jaclyn Says:

    I couldn’t even cover 1/4 of the alphabet with places I’ve been because I haven’t really traveled. I could definitely fill it with places I want to go though! πŸ˜› (I’ve really only gone to North Carolina, where we used to rent a beach house on Emerald Isle for our family reunions, and the southwest part of Florida because my grandparents (and everyone else’s it seems) live there).

    I don’t have anything against Delaware, but Detroit makes a much better “D” πŸ˜‰ ..we are the rock city afterall.
