A Fun & Easy Meme

Some days these are just fun to do. I saw this over at His Mercy is New which is a blog I read but I can't remember now how I found it. ;-) It was either through another link of some sort or the wonderful "discovery" button on Google Reader. What? You've never tried it?? Oh, you really should. Trust me.

Feel free to grab this to do on your own blog. If you don't have one, feel free to grab it to do via e-mail. Have fun!

  1. Phew! I'm tired just reading all this! LOL...I should try this. It looks like we have been and done some of the same things except...bungee jumping. There is no way I could do this. My husband loves that sort of adventure though. He is forever trying to get me to go sky diving, on scary roller coasters, bungee jumping, etc. Shivers, I'm a chill out on the beach under a palm tree type of gal(giggle).

  2. Hey, this looked like fun so I posted it to my blog! Some of them sounded like so much fun I think I'll add them to my "to do before the Lord comes list." :)

  3. Oh, I might have to try this one, Lisa!

  4. Nice blog. :)
    This is so neat, I'm going to do it, too!

  5. FUN! I think I'll go do that now since it is something quick and easy I could post right now while trying to get some pics together to upload and blog.


Oh thank goodness! I'm not here all alone. Thanks for leaving me a comment. It helps that I'm not always talking to myself. Right? Hello?
