I loved ready you list! YOU've done a lot too! So....we will NEVER see you sky dive, bungee jump or kill your own meat? Interesting! LOL!!!

Have a wonderful and blessed day and ENJOY all those GREAT girlfriends you have. That is so fun to have a Girl Posse! I used to be a member of one of those groups but things feel by the way side...I miss it and am currently working on building another group! It looks like ya'll have a BLAST!

I will never bungee jump or skydive either. EVER. NEVER. I see no point in it. People say that they learned a lot about themselves while doing these things -- well, I guess I will never know those things about me if it only comes out while plummeting to the Earth.


Tammy said...

No bungee jumping for this girl either!

Too fun! I will do this later for certain and i am sorry I missed Thrifty Thursday, maybe next week! I had an awful lot today. Feeling a little like drowning. Big hugs
