99 things

As you probably read in my 28 week post last night, I'm having "one of those weeks".  I didn't have much to blog about and I've seen a few people doing this lately so I figured I'd bore you guys with 99 things that I have or haven't done.  Exciting, huh?  Haha.  Hopefully this afternoon I will dust off my camera and take some pictures of Kyla for you all.

  1. I would say for WI, the "M" counts as a mountain! Now, if you ever get out here, you will definitely not be saying the same. :)

    I totally know what you mean about feeling like you wasted your nap time. My girls just went down and look what I am doing!! I have great intentions each day, but then I just get so tired!!
