100 Things

Posted on: April 4, 2008

Chinese Outfit

Check out this great outfit that Eva got L when she was in China. It’s all padded, and should be great next winter. She just got to go around the world– Hawaii, Australia, and China. Apparently you save a lot of money doing it all in bulk instead of seeing them all separately. I’ll keep that in mind next time I have a few thousand dollars lying around. hehe

I thought that was a good header for my list of 100 things to do before I die. This has been going around the blog world a lot lately. Here’s one I particularly like: Mighty Girl Check out all 100 of hers, then see her list of 100 Things Worth Doing that she describes as things she has seen/done that she hopes “flashes before her eyes” at the end of her life. Her blog is one of the funniest I read.
