do you have any idea how excited i get when i see that you've updated ... and then i see my NAME mentioned ... it makes a crappy lunch at the desk all worth it.

i love you - thanks for listening to me last night.

Oh...I have to ask...have you posted about Hot Morrocan Boy? And the tattoo?? Did I miss it somewhere in your blog?

And I highly advise getting your navel pierced. Although it seems to take FOREVER to heal (up to 6 months, mind you!), it's well worth it! I had mine done several years ago and do not regret it!

P.S. Thanks for stopping by my blog (Pit Bulls are nothin' but big babies, aren't they??? I have my girl, Jezbel, inside but her son, Strider (aka the proverbial bull in a china shop), stays outside.)

You are welcome for stealing my list even though I stole it from another site! ha ha. Hey, being a graphic designer for the past 16 years and I used to work in a T-Shirt factory as a designer and photographer...I will help design the shirts when you and the girls go into business. Count me in on the bandwagon :) Rock on! inky

Wandaful said...

Sparkle Plenty, Just want to say thanks for including me in your list. We did our share of crying this past year, but it was soooo nice knowing that we were there for each other (and both going through #2 (NO, not poop!) together!!). You are truly an angel and a joy to have in my life!

Love ya!!
