I really love how your blog looks! Anyway, thanks for doing this. I love learning more about the people I know ;). Oh and I can't believe you gave up french fries for 4 years!!! Wow!

That was fun. I loved 3's company when I was young and I saw U2 in concert twice when I was a teen. We have so much in common, except that whole running thing. You would be proud, we joined a gym this weekend. Now we just have to go.

we should play scrabble on FB. they have a beta version my siblings and I have been playing online. a bit buggy, but it works well enough.
