  2. Yay! Thanks for the award! I just awarded it to 11 more people! I have never heard of it, but i think its darling!!


    Whoops, almost forgot! Here's the link!!

  4. So funny that you always wanted to be a mailman! I would sit in my house looking out the window after school and wait for the mailman to come, in case, by some miracle, I had a letter. I always thought it would be fun to deliver other people's mail. Except that I'm horribly afraid of dogs. So that's out.

  5. I also get in the long lines to read the magazines as well! I am so mad at Allie Condle as well. That whole series made me mad. Mostly because I'm writing my own novel and it's a similar idea, but not as silly. Yeah. I'm your newest follower, such a cute blog! I'm digging the mustaches!


  6. Morgan. I did it. I answered your questions, and I wrote new ones, and I wrote facts. It was like you gave me an assignment and I DID IT! A, please.

  7. How do you know chelsie!? I noticed you tagged her! I love chelsie! I also loved your answers- your so cute.

    1. jan! i think i found her through your blog maybe? i can't really remember. but i only know her through the blogging world. haha.
