  1. Loved this to know so many things...I need to visit Paris and jealous of you now.. :((
    I am so afraid to sing alone...good to hear that u did...
    I truly truly loved : Walked on a beach by moonlight... I usually go to a beach late night when in state of depression...its so soothing to just hear the wave...

    And must tell you try donating blood..its truly satisfying..i do it once a year and feel really happy!!

  2. I have done this but a long time ago and I can't even remember if it was on my blog or Facebook. Anyway--I am SO jealous that you have been to Hawaii and Paris. One day......

  3. Fun stuff! I love how most of the things are just fun, adventurous, travel-type things, and then "adopted a child" is thrown in there. TOTALLY a bigger commitment and huger deal than seeing a meteor shower or something. haha I love the random mix of stuff. :) Fun to read!

  4. WOW GIRL! you have done so much in your life!!!.. and i am SHOCKED that there is one thing that i have done that you havent.. and that is SEEN THE ALAMO in person :) i actually have. :) i know.. i am bragging... but shoot... compared to all the places you have been etc.... The Alamo doesnt even seem to do me any justice :) lol!!!!

    THANK YOU for calling me the other day!!!!!!!!! we were gone to the mall School Clothes Shopping!!! I didn't even get your message til today... actually tonight! we have boxes that are stacked up in front of our answering machine! lol!!! so i didnt even see it blinking until i moved some boxes to get something out of one and i saw that i had several messages... and ONE WAS YOU! i was like SO HAPPY and Surprised!! Thank you for the sweet message.. and i love your accent!

  5. Quote from Jon Bon Jovi

    I've been everywhere and I'm standing tall. I've seen a million faces and I've rocked them all



  6. LOL. You know you're slow when you finally notice someone linked to your blog MONTHS ago! :) Learned more about you!


Comments make me happy :)
