Thanks Leslie, for the tag. Actually, it was lots of fun, having Brad join and all. I think he had a good time, too. Now I tag Heather, Lindsey, Jolene, Carlee and Amy (and anyone else who wants to participate! Modify it as you see fit.) Ooh-ooh, I'm excited! :)


  1. How are you one of your husband's bad habits? hmm? Or is it something I just don't want to know about? teeheehee

  2. Fun to read. I think I pretty much knew most of that already.

  3. I got a good laugh out of some of those. You know you so wish you could relive the 80's do. LOL

  4. Very entertaining. Unfortunately Beth, the ratting stage lasted longer for some of us. See recent blog pic for details.

    Some of us have never left the "ratting habit".

  8. AHHHH! Larabars and Vitamix!!!! I covet a Vitamix SO BADLY! I want one in the worst way possible! And Cashew Cookie Larabar is my fave. What's yours?

  9. A vitamix? SWEET! I so want one of those. Your list was fun to read... and I'm glad you're putting your foot down about the tapered pants.


You're currently in the process of making my day. So thanks for that! *B
