Thanks Jen, that was fun!


  1. Thanks Colleen...I'll do it when we get back from vacation!

  2. Thanks for tagging me, Colleen, maybe that'll help me get rid of my blogger's block! I'll work on that this afternoon during nap time. Bonus? 8 is my favorite number. No, I don't know why.

    As I was reading through yours, I think we have a lot in common. I'd go for a tummy tuck, too, to get rid of this cesarean apron, as it's called--that extra skin from all of my babies. Isn't it hard on the ego? ;)

    I wanted to point out--wish I could use very small type--that my name is misspelled. It's actually Aubrey, with a B, not a D. Don't worry; I get that a lot! :)

  3. Didn't that LICE episode on Christine crack you up?
    Lice is so not funny in real life, but this episode was hysterical.
    I just might do this meme over break.
    Happy Easter.

  4. Terrific list! I'd love to meet everyone too...and I'm with you on the tummy tuck - is that vain?

  5. Sarah- Happy Vacation!!

    Aubrey - Whoops, I fixed your name, so sorry!

    Laura - I could not stop laughing when they were all sitting in the principal's office with their oily hair....

    Jen - glad to know I'm not alone on the belly issues, and thanks for the game!

  6. oh this looks like fun. Thanks for the tag.

  7. Hey! Thanks so much for tagging me! I'll be sure to work on my list. Also will be sure to check out those other bloggers.

  8. Thanks for the tag! I will get to it eventually. ;)

    I'm also looking forward to eating sweets again... I want a blueberry muffin and milk! Of course, I've got to wait til May. :)

  9. Thanks Colleen, Just completed my 8 things and was sure to provide a link back to your blog!

  10. okay. My list is up. Thanks for tagging me.
