I'm working on a fun project for either tomorrow or Monday...depending on how much time I spend cleaning vs. crafting today!!! (I swear I'm cleaning honey...)
So in the meantime, here's the 99 things meme that I've seen in a few different places around the interwebber. I think its kind of funny. You bold the things you've done, and italicize the things you want to do. And, presumably, the plain ones you've never done, and don't want to do.
1. Started your own blog.
you're here, aren't you?
2. Slept under the stars.
3. Played in a band.
so long as elementary school flute counts hehe
4. Visited Hawaii.
Are you reading Mom & Dad??? HUH??? ARE YA???
(pssst...they just took my 15 year old brother to Hawaii. I got to drive them to the airport. Oh, and I got some Macadamia Nuts. Totally fair.)
