Very educational meme! :D

The Justin/Reba duet is so beautiful. I put it on repeat in my car over and over... and over and over again too!

Um... 5. "Where's my tail?" ????

Jillian said...

Justin is the fictional love of my life. I would so have that song be the first dance at my wedding. It's so perfect.

Every morning I get in my sister's bed to wake her up, then when I get up I say "where's my tail?" meaning my pump.

Colleen said...

As an older sister, I can say - "Oh my, how annoying." You're a stitch!

Jillian said...

I totally left out the part that I tend to carry my pump around in my hand in the morning then drop it onto whatever I sit on. So that's why it's not in a pocket/on my waist and I need to know where it is when I get up.

Sounds like you have some great friends.

You sure have some big plans & I know you're gonna succeed at all of them!
