    And the duct tape is very interesting. A friend of my daughter's makes jewelry and wallets out of duct tape. Who knew??

  3. Hmm. Obsessed with camo and duct tape huh? Remind me to not *ever* get you pissed off at me!

  4. "only for special occasions"....bahahahahah! You naughty girl! ;)

    Next time I come visit in your furniture-less apartment, I'm using the air mattress!!

    Can't wait to see you in August! :)

    My brother did Pike's Peak. He said going down is actually harder than going up.

    Duct tape? WTH? I have a friend whose daughter makes duct tape pens and duct tape flip flops. NO joke, but the flip flops are quite comfy!

  8. So fun to read! Wow, Pikes Peak. Would love to run that one. And chocolate covered gummy bears? I have never seen those. I'm sure my boys would LOVE those. Loved your answers, thanks for sharing. Didn't see you as the gal who is obsessed with camo an duct tape. LOL.
