Hey Slewej!

Many comments about this fun post of yours! First of all-congrats on getting to post #99! I have only done like 5 posts and I feel like they're a waste of time since probably nobody reads them-oh well! Secondly-I LOVE your name! Who else in the world do I call Slewej and Jewels (: I wish that were my name! Also, one of my FAVORITE shows is Friends-and I liked your use of the word nubbin (did you realize that was a Friends word? - Chandler's third nipple!)

There were many things on your list I didn't know about you, so that was way fun to read. We really need to get together next time Kyle and I are in Burley. In fact, we will be in Burley the weekend of July 18th for Natalie's wedding (she and Matt Yost are getting married-can yyou believe it!) anyway, you should let me know what your plans are and maybe we can hang out-I would love to see your beautiful girls and for you to mee my Sky!

Also, I want you to know I LOVE READING YOUR POSTS! They arfe soo hilarious and interesting and have a lot of good information (like the grocery game-I gave your email addy as the referral) Bur I was wondering if you have ever thought about writing? You may not know this, but you are a talented writer-I LOVE all your blogs. All I am saying is that if one day I see a book on parenting or making yummy, cheap meals or some other helpful book by Julie Pizarro-I won't be surprised!

Luv ya!

Awww Mas, you are so sweet!!! I miss you like crazy!

And holy crap, Natalie and Matt? That is an unexpected couple! LOL!

Laura said...

Yay! I love reading these lists. I always like discovering how much I already know about someone, and then learning things I didn't know too! :)

I'm with Laura, I love reading these and learning new things! :-) I'm surprised you didn't mention your ability to shoot a grape out of your nose, or did I miss it!
