Grins and giggles

I have decided to join the 101 things in 1001 days movement. Below is my list of 101 things I want to accomplish. I plan to move this to its own page and link it on the side. Like I need another blog to keep track of - doh! >.<

On a side note - Amy has my bridesmaids dress now. It came in a few days ago even though they told us 11/7 it would be here. LOL Oh and she said it fits her. :) Being the same size comes in handy....I think we are the same size everywhere....I hope we are otherwise it might make me super busty....ok wait is that really a problem? Nah! hehe *evil grin*
