7. I won a $5000 shopping spree. Truth! Meadows Mall..Black Friday, I was buying my first digital camera..on sale. I slipped a little card in the bin to see if maybe i'd win? I got the call 1/2 an hour later.

8. I was flying to Salt Lake City and I heard while in the air..we we're preparing to make an emergency landing. I was fine until the lady across the aisle started making goodbye phone calls..then I started freaking out. I mean, I missed my parents..but I wasn't ready to see them yet. I still had things to do! The front tires that help the plane land woudn't turn I guess? They would come down, but we wouldn't be able to turn the corner. We were met by police, ambulances lining the runway. Yeah, that was fun. I still fly thank you very much.

9. I love trying new food. Sushi..well I'm beginning to appreciate it. I'd like to try Indian..but my favorite has been Mexican. Yumm.

10. When I went to London, we were there for the last marathon of the Olympic Games. That was so amazing.

11. I do love to blog! I wish the people that I follow would update theirs. But to each their own. I don't even scrapbook anymore. After so many posts I print mine up. Voila! I don't need to be crafty craft..or crafty-crap. HaHa! ;)
