Love, love, love it! I didn't know most of those. I use to have bows too, ugh! This will be a hard one to do for me...we'll see. Good reading!

Holy Moly! We would be trouble! I like mayo with my fires too...but there is nothing like Chick-fil-a mayo. Y'all don't have a Chick-fil-a do you? And...I do the "L" thing too! Except, your the only person I am admitting that to. I usually play it off like I "pretending" to be one of my students.

And this is random...but my BFF used to listen to song. She always told me that she knew it wasn't about this...but she imagined meeting her husband when she listened to it! Now we can't here it without giggling.
