That is so funny. I totally did not see my name at first...

I am soo laughing...

And you are so busted.

First...ah...your books...sheesh? A little brainy. Can you stick in some brain candy?

Oh, and the marathon, with twins? Let me know how that works out. I just want to use my treadmill again!

Prepare yourself.

Thanks for including me! I also want to thank you for your post of my blog. It means a lot to me. I am so happy I joined the blog world and was able to get to know people and make some friendships.
It was fun to read your list, I will do this soon.
Thanks again!

I am laughing out loud at you tagging Carissa with a villain laugh. Hee, hee.
Those were some great lists. It's always so interesting to hear things about people that you obviously didn't know.

I LOVE lists like this. You get to know people!

Steph said...

Great list!!! Thanks for playing along! Have a great weekend.

Thanks for tagging me! I've been wanting to do this meme. I love reading everyone's responses. I totally agree about loving being a mum. I adore it and have so much fun with my kids. One of the things I want to do before I die is travel to New Zealand. If I ever get out that way we totally have to meet!!! I have read about the great hiking in New Zealand...
