Can you guess Wendy's favorite....

I am closing out the Welcome to Wendy Week here at Books, Boys, Buzz with a post dedicated to our newest Bee, Wendy Toliver's faves! This has been a whirlwind week of everything Wendy....and what a fantastic week for prizes!

First up, we have Wendy's favorite male celebs....can you guess who they are?


Steve Martin because he's so witty

And...

Lance Armstrong because he doesn't flinch at the impossible!

Some other great choices from Wendy...for example, her favorite female celebs walk that line of being completely gorgeous, but totally approachable (just LIKE Wendy, don' t you think?)


"I always thought Drew Barrymore was adorable (think E.T.) and now she's gorgeous. I like her quirkiness and she seems down-to-earth and friendly. Charlize Theron is another favorite of mine. She's so lovely and talented and I have it on good authority that she's really cool. I also like Fergie because she's so talented and it's almost like she's a part of my family because we listen to her music so often. Here's a tidbit: Growing up, people called me Fergie because my last name was Ferguson. "

Great choices Fergie!


What is Wendy's Favorite Vacation Destination:

"Costa Rica, hands down. It is so beautiful and the terrain is so interesting. My husband and I traveled all over, from the surfing beaches to the rain forests. We stayed in amazing places and ate delicious food. The wildlife is abundant and the people are the loveliest I've seen anywhere else, and so friendly to Americans. I can't wait to go back. "


Wendy's Favorite Movies are Juno and Life is Beautiful
Her Favorite Book is The Importance of Being Earnest
And the most important of all, what is Wendy's favorite way to spend a day?


Yikes! It's hard to narrow it down. Here are a few things I love doing, but of course I wouldn't want to do them all in a single day: snowboarding or wakeboarding, yoga, , traveling in new places....

Going to a fancy gala or costume party...

and of course going on a hot date with her adorable husband

So, those are some of Wendy's favorite things...what are some of yours? Leave a comment for a chance to win the $10 gift card from Borders!

I loved Costa Rica too. I stayed 2 weeks and provided therapy services to underprivileged, physically and mentally disabled. We toured the country on the weekends. It was an awesome experience.

Wendy Toliver said...

Hi Dona, thanks so much for the great post! This has been such a fun week and I'm so glad to be a Bee!

Stacy, that sounds like a trip that warmed your heart as well as your tootsies! Good for you!

jpetroroy, I agree; that was a great one. My little brother can pretty much quote "The Jerk" in its entirety!

I loved reading all about Wendy's favorites! And yes, I loved how her favorite female celebs are so much like her--completely gorgeous, but totally approachable!

I love Josh Hartnett! He's so adorable. Unfortunately I don't see him in much anymore. I also thinks Charlize Theron is a very talented actress.

Wendy Toliver said...

Tina, Dona and you are so sweet but maybe if you saw me in my high-water sweats more often ... LOL

Jessy, I agree that Josh is adorable and according to IMDB, he's got a couple of films in the works! (yay!)
