TGIF lovers. What are you doing this weekend?


  1. Love getting to know you a little more.
    We have so much in common. BTW

  2. I love this post! We have TONS in common!

    Anxiety, ditto.

    J tucks me in, oh it drives me crazy when the sheet is tucked under and the comforter and sheet are not perfectly lined up at the top. And, for get about it if I am wearing sleepy pants - the pants legs must be pulled down - no bunching!

    Fish. Mushrooms. Barf.

    I've been known to pull over and buy chap stick if I can't find one. Dry lips cause a brain malfunction, I swear!

    My birthday month, 07 not 7. :)

    Oh, and 8-24 sizing - ugh!

    I so miss 'Buffy' - I am sad they cancelled 'The Ringer'. :(

    And because this comment isn't long enough ... ha! Thanks for putting my button on your page. I just realized how hideous my button is. LOL I need to add yours back to mine, I totally forgot about buttons when I did my new layout!

  3. I am actually working in mine right now and its cool to see that a few of your items made it on my list :)

    Loved getting to know you more.

  4. I agree with most of these...and I'm glad my dog isn't the only one with a voice!

  5. Oh gosh, if I didn't know any better, I'd think that I wrote this! You & I have so much in common. We need to link up!!!


    Enjoy the weekend doll.

  6. Hey girl! Just wanted to drop by and say hey! I'm super excited for the swap!!

  7. Holy crap that a lot of lip gloss! I think I carry one with me but rarely ever put it on haha. I'm more of a chapstick kinda girl. My husband's a bit of a germ-a-phobe too, it's taken him years to be comfortable sharing an eating utensil with me.


I love hearing from you. Thanks for taking the time to read about Dexter Morgan and his adventures.
