Molly Lou Melon, oh how I love that book! It looks like you liked the Uglies? Did you end up buying them? Maybe I need to borrow them sometime.

Sam we have so much in common - it's no wonder we're related. I also love LOST, want to go to Egypt, and say "seriously?" almost daily. Plus, I have been to Cedar Point and it is AWESOME!!

Can we be your neighbors when we move to Daybreak? We are in love with it, too! Who knows when we'll ever move, but when we do, it will be to a cute house in DB and being the Sams neighbors would make it even better! :)

Oh my gosh you are the cutest thing ever. I wish I was as creative with photography as you are. I always love all the cute pictures you have. I'm pretty lamo when it comes to that. :-) Oh well I guess my point and shoot pictures will have to do.

I love reading too and I love vampires.
