I think I knew almost all of these things. That makes me a Jaimie expert. Who knew?

Kelly said...

I can't believe you could do that...I don't think I could...maybe that means I should try.,...sounds like it might be a good blog post. I feel like I know you even better than I did before!!

Thats great to learn about you. I am with you on SPIDERS I can not stand them nor kill them. Deathly afraid of them. And of course all the spiders in Oklahoma live in my back yard, garage, front yard and come out during the summer. I saw so many this year that I had never seen before.

Hey! Nice to meet you via-blogs :) Thanks for the compliments on our photos - really appreciate it!

I'm up early on a Saturday because the baby has hiccups -- love him, but it's awfully hard to sleep when there's a rythmic poke coming from inside your stomach every 2 seconds. I just spent the last 1/2 hour reading through your blog, getting to know you and your beautiful family! I think we'd have a lot in common if we lived closer; there were quite a few things on your list that made me go, "ME TOO!!" :)
