Wow, that was awesome. I learned things about you I never knew. I hope you do get a calling for Girls camp one day. I was the camp director for our ward last year and I absolutely loved it. I get to do it this year too. :-)

Hi back! To answer your question about the bedding. I love it! It's really comfortable and pretty. One draw back is we have a white dog. It's hard to keep the hairs off. We try to keep him out of that room. Anyway, I read your 101 things and I feel like I know you now, j/k! Anyway, thanks for the compliment on my girls. You're kids are adorable too. And I will be blogging about my hubby's movie making expierence, so keep an eye out.

That was really fun to get to know you, don't think it was boring at all.

Way cool that you were adopted!!

I did not know your kids had the same birthday! My step-sister and I have the same birthday- but totally not the same thing.

I love my vacuum too!!

I'd like to say that I knew all of that information, but I did not know you liked Britney Spears... interesting.
Ha ha, I love you.
