A Bucket List of Sorts

I didn't know what to write about tonight. So, I thought I would post this list that I saw on Kerry's site. Sort of fun, but made me realize that I really need to travel more. :)

The rules are that you are to bold/change the color on each of the below that apply to you, then tag 4 more people and let me know when you’ve posted!

Is "play with a red block" on the list? I've done that. Did you know red and yellow are my favorite colors?

How about "find yellow block with eyes closed?" I have done that too.

1. Started your own blog (technically, Stacie started it for me, but. . .)

2. Slept under the stars. I remember building tents outside out of sheets and blankets with my best friends, Tamar and Tiffany. For some reason, it was exciting to sleep in odd places like their station wagon, closets and outside, of course.

3. Played in a band (high school band counts right?)

I'm sure my parents still have that clipping too. Along with boxes of other stuff from my childhood.

Enjoy sleeping in tomorrow! I know I will. Hopefully you won't get another headache tonight!
