8 People I'm Tagging

1. Jellybean Mama of
2. Ally of who has actually vowed herself to blogging silence so this might not work very well
.. that's all I got


  1. I enjoyed reading! Don't worry, I think I was confused the first time that I was "introduced" to the tags, too, haha. Thanks for doing it & passing it on :)

  2. I just logged on and found this. I've never done a tag and usually ignore them, but perhaps this is why I've been bombarded with a bout of migraines. No tags! Let's see if it'll work.

  3. can i do 3 things instead? i'm not sure my life is interesting enough to fullfill 8.
