I don't have a favorite either. One electric parade was especially memorable though because a friend had gone to Disneyland after graduating high school and was working there as a parade performer. Seeing him in the parade was fun.

Yes. I'm a part of an international book club. Our group is spread out all over the world, and we often exchange things or surprise each other with random packages for random reasons.

Yes. From pen pals when I was younger, a friend in Japan, and stuff I've ordered.

I did a few Disney Pin exchanges where I have received from across the pond and Australia, I have also purchased a few items on eBay that came from Hong Kong.

I think the majority of my packages are considered "international", but if I remove the United States from the list, I can still say yes.

I have friends all over the world, but my most notable package came from a friend in Scotland who sent me a care package that included Milka chocolate bars. Mmmmm.

I had gotten international packages a bunch of times from friends, and relatives in Japan, and other countries. As well as part of exchanges.

Yesterday, our friend sent us a box of goodies, and school supplies for my kids, and we had so much fun trying, and exploring all the different things from Japan!

Do you prefer to eat at a restaurant, or do you prefer to take your food home, and eat it? What are some of your favorite places to eat/get food from?

We don't eat out much but if we do, we eat the food at the restaurant. For pizza or Chinese we order then pick up.

Once in awhile i like to go to Red Robin, or Ruby Tuesday.
