There. That was fun. You should do this--it really makes you think about yourself, what you've done, funny life experiences, etc. Plus I'm sure those of you who know me learned at least one thing you didn't know before. OK I've got a baby to tend to . . . you think I just make lists about myself all day long?

    I'm still alive...it's me your little sis. It's been a while. I've been busy, you've been busy but umm, you're the older one. Isn't it your job to check up on me once in a while. I guess I can forgive you but only because now I have the TWO cutest nieces in the world (soon to be 3.) Dad said you wanted me to come out in July (he thinks that's what you said.) I'm pretty open. School's out on June 20 so call ME and we'll see if we can work something out.

  6. OK so we're sorta letting the cat out of the bag on that last one. . . most of our friends know, but a lot of family doesn't. However, we didn't outright lie either since it's not so straight forward. Here's the story (short version). We did have a mutual friend who kept trying to set us up. It never happened. Then one day on LDSlinkup B wrote to me (didn't know I was the same girl our friend was trying to introduce him to). I wrote him back. It took me a couple days to figure out he was the guy Tiff kept trying to introduce me to. . . so we decided to meet and well the rest is history. So we DID have a mutual friend, it's just not how we actually met. But I think it's a cool story.

    Lil' sis. . .I'll call you. Yes you should come out in July.

  8. Ok, so even though I don't know you although I've met you...you're a friend of a friend's...I still enjoyed reading your list. I think I could read every single person in the world's list and enjoy it.

  9. Beatrix--I agree. . . people's lists are just fun to read. OK, so who do we know in common?

    Missa--For some reason I'm proud of you for still not having a cd player. That's awesome.

  10. I use to live in Santa B. and was friends with Jen Rose. Then I ran into you at a hockey game...I was out on the ice and you were in the stands during an intermission and I got her phone no. again from you since we'd lost touch. I don't know how or why I remember that, but I do :)
