Those are so funny Mari. I think my favorite may have been GOSSIP.

Everytime I come to your site I want to steal what you've posted for my own. (Except for the recipes... when I come to your site and see the recipes I'm convicted as I know I'm not a very good cook :)

Love ya girl

Well, I have always wondered when I would be officially considered an adult (I mean I AM only 35 yrs old ;-) but now its official....I am DEFINITELY an adult (by your definition). I have stopped growing at both ends and I am defnitely growing in the middle.

We actually have a hair salon in the area named "curl up and Dye"...it always causes a second glance, even though I've seen it many time!

Thanks for the chuckle for today! Those were great. Isn't it sad that I am only 23, and considered an adult by that definition. Guess it comes with having kiddos huh?
