Confession: This post is going to be a little different tonight.
As you know, I am on set all week for a commercial campaign. And for those who have never been in or around the acting biz, days on set are lonnnnggg. We’re talking 12 hour days. Add on to that a 45 minute commute in either direction and let’s just say, I’m pretty mentally spent.
Not that I’m complaining! This is what I live for…well, maybe a few other things too 😉
But all that being said, coming up with a mentally stimulating brain buster of a blog tonight was simply…impossible.
SO I thought I’d do a little Get To Know Caralyn session 🙂 haha
JK This’ll be fun! 🙂 And I want you to play too! So pick a question or two and answer in the comments 🙂 #LetsBeFrwends

Well since you are a lot younger your VW was probably a newer one, Mine was a 1971 model and yes the sunroof had a, well if you remember when you had to roll down windows? It was a handle like that, but it was hinged. You pulled it down and out until it was straight, (of course it’s on the ceiling of the car, not the door LOL) cranked it like you were rolling up(or down) a window and folded the handle back in when you had the sunroof open or closed. If ANY of that makes sense LOL hugs back at you lovely xoxo

Hahahaha… loving “Journaling through Recovery.” Story of my life….phew. And what is up with the bloopers lol. and oh my gosh….those gifs lol. You are something else, someone special.

I suspect jackfruit is gentler. my mother says durian tastes just like exquisite vanilla ice cream … I on the other hand … I won’t tell you because it’s just too revolting x
exquisite vanilla ice cream!?! oh dang…it makes me want to fight the stench and give it a try! yeah, jackfruit tastes and smells like peach/pineapple cotton candy. definitely give it a try!
hehe … I suspect you may enjoy durian. and I suspect I might fall out if the window in horror… but I shall give it a go … now to find one …
have you ever tried a mangosteen… now … that is pure delicious heaven …
Oh my gosh yes! Delectable! If only we lived in the tropics 😍

I skipped a few that don’t really apply to me.
Ooooooh snap! on the Olsen movie!!! Well played, Pi, well played:) hehe and gosh I feel you on the phone. I am guilty of that for sure. I’m going to try to be more intentional about that.

Favorite Place to be: anywhere my family is. 😉
I can’t name a favorite rock song from the early 00’s…Not a Bieber fan…that was the stage in life where Disney theme songs were most of what we heard at our house! lol
Congratulations on your project, hope all goes well!
Thanks so much Shauna! Oooh scrap booking! Love that so much. What a gift you can give people with that. And I feel. You. On the margaritas. Some days just call for them. Thanks for playing along! Hugs and love xox

Terrific post Caralyn! I love Sweden too! I really loved walking around Gamla Stan, the old part of Stockholm. I lived in Vantaa, Helsinki in Finland for a few years. I love the Finns and the Swedes. Unfortunately, I am Faaaaaaar to old to know anything about the Olsen twins! lol, but my favourite book is (well, four books!) The Raj Quartet by Paul Scott. The Anne Frank diaries are amazing. She was an amazing person who had an horrific experience and told her story to the world. Have you ever been to the Anne Frank museum in Amsterdam? It is very humbling, and makes you grateful for what you have. God bless you, I really hope your commercial campaign goes well and is great fun for you! 🙂

Oh really?! Haha oh gosh yeah but good hearty laughs ensued I hope!
A smirk or two.
IMHO the best Will F movie is Stranger Than Fiction. I think it’s because there was a script.
A close second is Zoolander.
Never seen that one. But zoolander is definitely a gem 🙂 hehe x
Uh earth to Caralyn, it’s the best.
Hahahaha ok thanks 🙂 noted
Thanks, Caralyn, for this light-hearted, yet thoughtful post.

Thank you for sharing! The thing I found most interesting was your favorite book. I really like Diary of Anne Frank but what makes it your favorite?
Thanks so much! I was just so moved by her story because I read it at the same age that she wrote it so I really felt a connection to her and was just heartbroken by what she had to go through. Hugs and love xox

Oh gosh gone with the wind is such a well done movie. It sweeps you away to another world! Thanks for playing along! This was fun! Hugs and love xox
Hello! I thought this would be a fun Friday afternoon to answer a few questions!
Summertime Treat? S’Mores or Ice Cream
Summertime Tradition? Probably just watching fireworks on the 4th. Hands down favorite holiday.
Favorite beauty product? Umm.. I am actually an all natural girl. I don’t even know how to put it on.
Book? Oh gosh this one is hard.. I love the entire Lord of the Rings Trilogy, and the Through the Looking Glass trilogy.. And Harry Potter.. Books are a slight obsession.
Song? This is almost as hard as trying to pick a book! I listen to so many different types of music that my favorite songs change on the daily.. Right now it’s probably Yours, 0 Russell Dickinson, or God Made a Woman – Jerrod Nieman.
Favorite Destination? Anywhere with a beach. Mexico was stunning. Loved the Bahamas. I think just anywhere with my fiancé is a win for me.
First Car? a 1998 Dodge Neon.
Perfume? I love ALL things that smell pretty, favorite brand would probably be Escada though.
Favorite place to be? A stream in the mountains early in the morning.
Restaurant? Probably Charlie Gitto’s on the Hill in St. Lou.
Favorite blog post I’ve written? I have no clue.
Thanks for playing along! Oh yes ! Can’t go wrong with smores. And I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan! Woo! Wow that stream sounds idyllic. Hugs and love xox
Favorite “Has Been” Celeb? Definitely Devin Sawa. My favorite movie of his would have to be Wild America. 😀 Which also stars J.T.T. 😉
Devin Sawa! I’m going to have to look him up!! thanks so much for playing along! this was fun 🙂 hugs xo
It was. 😀 It was a great idea for a post. XOXO
Thanks again xox ✨✨✨
Some of my favorite things:
Favorite has been actor: Keanu Reeves,
Favorite Movie: Stand By Me, Fiddler on the Roof, Sound of Music, A Beautiful Life,
Favorite Band: Duran Duran, any music from 1980’s, Need to Breathe, Lifehouse
Favorite food: Chocolate; OH Henry
Favorite book: I can’t name one because it’s like favoring your eldest child over the others. It’s not right. I love to read, and I do it as often as I can
Favorite Memory: Spending time with my Bubi (Hebrew for grandmother)
I don’t want to overload you, so that is where I will end. Have a great weekend Caralyn!
Love this Tamara! LOVE sound of music! I was actually in that when I was younger – I was the littlest von trap:) hehe thanks for playing along! Hugs and love xox
Favorite rock song from the early 00s? “Hero” by the Foo Fighters. (It was released in 1997, so technically too early, but this song is a major part of my high school soundtrack). “Chop Suey!” by System of a Down. “Minority” by Green Day.
Favorite Summertime Treat? Watermelon. Cantaloupe. My mom’s cold pasta salad (so good!)
Favorite Summertime Tradition? Backyard badminton tournaments.
Favorite beauty product must have? DevaCurl anything. It’s the best.
Favorite Book? Waaaaaaaay too many.
Favorite Song? Right now, I’m enjoying “Glorious” by Macklemore, which is really far out of my norm. I always go back to the old hymns, like “Rock of Ages,” “It is Well With My Soul” and “A Mighty Fortress is Our God.”
Favorite Destination? London. Edinburgh.
Hi Marie! Oh these are great. I LOVE DevaCurl products too! My hair is naturally curly and so when I wear it that way, their DevaCurl products are the way to go. I actually go to their salon in NYC! And ohhhh I love it is well with my soul – especially Audrey assad’s rendition. Thanks for playing along! Hugs and love xox
Actor/actress. Now you’re playing in my ballpark. Anthony Hopkins? No rebuttal from me; he’s a great one. Have you seen Remains of the Day? But, here are my choices, reaching back into the mists of time. Jack Nicholson. He did some good work in the 90s: A Few Good Men, As Good as it Gets. But, for the real Jack you’re gonna have to watch Turner Classic and catch a couple 70s flicks. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest–Jack gets Oscar. Even better, the best detective story ever, Chinatown. Jack in film noir: priceless! Actress = Jane Fonda, also with a string of great performances in the 70s. Two Oscars, a couple nominations. My choice; the original feminist film of the 70s, Julia. Also with amazing performance by Vanessa Redgrave. There you go. Not necessarily better than Anthony Hopkins, but different. Favorite dessert–Sander’s cream puff hot fudge (it’s a Detroit classic). Favorite destination–Columbia Icefields in Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada.
Oh Jack Nicholson. CLASSIC. I’ve actually never seen a Jane Fonda flick. I’ll have to remedy that soon! Thanks for playing along! Hugs and love xox
Never seen a Jane Fonda film? Why then, I have just the film review for you. xox (BTW, I think you are a good writer of blog posts)
I know!! I’m not a good american!! haha thanks! can’t wait to read it. thanks for passing it along 🙂 hugs xo
Love your answers!!! Girl, Anne Frank’s diary is one of my favorite books as well!!! If you are really into her story, check out a book called, “The Last Seven Months of Anne Frank,” by Willy Lindwer, if you are curious, and the biography of Anne Frank, by Melissa Muller. The biography is really good, the last seven months do cover some difficult situations so warning about that. I’ve read the diary at least four times, but I’m thinking probably six haha. : ) I have a number of books that I enjoy, so it’s hard to choose. I would say…The Hiding Place, by Corrie Ten Boom is probably #1 or top favorite. She was a Christian woman, and hid Jews in her home. Her story is so inspirational!!! Every time she struggled with her faith or wondering how God would provide for her….He did!!!
Hey TR! Thanks for this. Oh wow I’ll definitely check that book out. Thanks for the recco. Yeah her story is just so heartbreaking. I’ve read the Hiding Place! What a powerful book. Thanks for playing along. It sounds like you and I have a similar historical interest. 🙂 big hugs to you xox
Ha ha the monkeys
You mean polos with popped collars are no longer in?
Yes watermelon… to the point a being a favourite food.
Favourite drumming songs: california dreaming, c&c music factory everybody dance now
Desination: Ribadesalla Spain, and Denver
Leisure activity: outdoors and movement 🙂
Haha yeah I thought those monkeys were pretty dang cute 🙂 hahaha yeah sorry to break the news to ya about the polos 😉 oooh Spain – I’ve always wanted to go! Thanks for playing along! Hugs and love xox
Also, I loved your questions about favourite place to be, role model, and memory.
Remembering good, and also realising these as near, close and possible 🙂
Thanks again David! X
I hope you don’t mind my posting –
I was invited on a ski camp with my old high school and three other alumni. The four of us went out to a bar one night after a day on the snow. We sat around a table in comfy couches, and had a beer or two. The bar was quiet and almost empty.
I remember walking home in the snow that night…
Under the blue sky (Denver gets a lot),
In the “glory” at church…,
My Nanna and Grandad’s, now deceased
Starbucks at 7am on a Monday
The grace meal after church,
Three Christian couples I have known. A maths professor and his wife, a UN aid worker couple, and a medical doctor couple. Each have been interested in me, and have been an encouragement in their models of life and faith.
Absolutely! That sounds like such a fun night in the snow! Thanks for playing along 🙂
Glad to get to know more. Enjoy your time on set, long days indeed sitting around. ” I get paid to wait. I act for free, Henry Fonda”.
Great advice my son was given when he started acting at 10yrs of age. I’m a proud mama.
Loved your family pic by the lake, beautiful and peaceful xxx
Thanks so much! Oh my gosh I love that quote! It’s so true!!! Oh my gosh. SO true haha. That’s terrific about your son! Congrats! Hugs and love xox
Such an amazing post!!! 🙂 The questions were so creative and I feel like I got to know you so much better because of that! I’d have to say my favorite song from the 00’s All Star by Smash Mouth. But both my parents are my role models for different reasons too, but I feel like that makes me a more rounded person if that makes sense. I can’t wait to read more from you and your experiences! 🙂
Thanks so much Shelby! Aw good so glad you enjoyed it! Oh dang…All Star — definitely brings back a lot of memories!! Thanks for playing along! Hugs and love xox
This was a fun read. Thank you for sharing the silly random side

Band of Brothers, a WWII miniseries by Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg, is the only work I’ve seen Neal in. When I looked up the cast from BoB, that’s when I read that he had been fired from Scoundrels for refusing sex scenes. He was standing on principle, as a married man of Catholic faith. Funny thing is, the show he was fired from only lasted 10 episodes! 😄 #Vindication

Are you allowed to say what the commercial advertises? Is it on TV? Print? Other media? As someone outside “the biz” it’s interesting to me and an opportunity to see you “in action” would be welcome. Your ability as a blogger is much appreciated, BTW.
I wish i could but i am contractually not allowed!!! thanks so much for your kind words. as soon as i can share i will 🙂 hugs xox
Great idea! Crazy week but hope to revisit and play this soon!
thanks Nina! hope your week has settled down! hugs xo
My perfume is by Ralph Lauren too, but it’s Romance. It was my go to scent when my daughter was born and I’ve recently rediscovered it. My favorite actor is probably Denzel Washington.
It was a lot of fun getting to know more about you… I know about those days where you’re too exhausted to think deeply 🙂 Best of luck on your commercial campaign!
Ralph Lauren perfumes smell so good!! Ooh Denzel is so good!!! thanks for playing along! big hugs xox
I might have to fight you on Anthony Hopkins. 😉 I’m a Liam Neeson girl, with Ralph Fiennes as an equally close second (and when I say Liam Neeson, I mean Schindler’s List era, not Taken . . . but I also have a soft spot in my heart for Phantom Menace . . .). Favorite music is easily anything from the 60’s and 70’s, namely Seasons in the Sun by Terry Jacks. Favorite movie is Schindler’s List, mainly because it’s so impactful and partly because my favorite destination is Berlin/the University trip I took to Germany and Poland. I was an Olson Twins girl, but Our Lips Are Sealed is my favorite. And . . . if I had to pick ONE blog post (so hard, right??) I think it would be ‘Dear Dad: A Hundred and One’ which was a letter to my dad about all the things I still wish I could say.
oh Liam Neeson is definitely up there too! You know, I’ve actually never seen Schindler’s List – I should watch it. I know it’s a difficult movie to watch, but I think it’s important to honor those innocent people who lost their lives in such a tragic way. Thanks for playing along. big hugs to you xox
