I did this same was a lot of fun! Wish I could say I'd done them all though.

Thanks for stopping by the kids' blog and my snarky site. It's totally crazy how much stuff they just accumulate. I swear toys breed amongst themselves when the lights are off. Swear it!

It's weird that some of the huge ones on here, ones that would be something people would jump at, if given the chance, don't appeal to me at all.
Great post.

jess--i think i actually stole the meme from you : )
just--feel free to pilfer : )
shere--after i thought about the list i realized that most of the things i have done were purely a matter of circumstance and location. if we hadn't lived in germany i wouldn't have gone to paris or london.
