Great list! I couldn't do 100 about me :) have you tried spray tanning? the kind where a person hand sprays you? I highly recommend it, if you have a special event that you'd like to be tan for.


Great stuff mind blowing !

Thanx for sharing

WOW! I am so impressed you could think of 100 things :) And you are NOT boring. I loved this!!! I don't get the whole Chevron and hounds tooth thing either :P

I stumbled across your blog from Pinterest. I love this! I hate the chevron trend too, I don't know who thought of it, but I hate that it caught on. You seem awesome, probably because we have a lot in common and I'm awesome lol. Following you now!
