99 things & Blogging is one :)

I saw this post over on Everything Happens for a Reason and decided this was going to be my Monday post. 

I came to an epiphany this morning that I really suck at  Monday morning posts. 
I always say I'm going to write at least my Monday post on Sunday so I'm prepared but that never happens because A) we are off doing something. Yesterday was a ton of yard work, family pictures, and some Red Lobster or B) I'm being a lazy bum.

It's usually B so everyone knows. 

Tomorrow will be the weekend and more specifically Cinco de Mayo recap. 

Until is a list of 99 things I have either done or have not done! 
 The bold items are the ones that I have done
A lot of the ones that are not bold I would love to do someday like bungee jump and sky dive!

So here we go...

The horse and buggy sign reminds me of home!

Looks like you've done quite a bit of traveling- jealous!

Ah, you forget that you have held a praying mantis! Would it help jog your memory if I were to remind you that it BIT you when you let it go?

Also, I was doing my own list in my head along with yours. Your travels and mine are close I think, but that German trip with Ju really put you all over the map in Europe.

This was fun to read!
(BTW, c-h-a-r-i-c-a-t-u-r-e) ;)

This is ridiculous but somehow I thought you didn't post all week and today here they were. I was getting worried and it turns out I'm just an idiot. This is a great Monday morning post and I'll be stealing it in the future.
