  1. I’ve always wanted to learn how to upholster!

  2. Love this post! Will definitely do one of my own in the next couple days! :)
    Also, I 100% agree on Sandra Bullock, letters, ignorance, and Lifehouse & Pearl Jam & Matchbox20. Hehe.

  3. Aw, San! I love this. I definitely might have to steal this idea from you in the future. Sooo cute. I especially love your “7 Things That Delight” list. :D

  4. “a mercedes stationwagon”? How did you come up with that? Who would have thought. You really need to meet Doris… :-)

  5. I LOVE this! I will so copy this once I am back to normal life!
    Hope your week was uh-mazing! How long are your parents gonna stay?
    Hugs xxx

  6. I tried knitting a cardigan but gave up on it halfway. Haha!

    I never thought of ‘paw’ being a funny word but now that I come to think of it, it really is.

  7. Can I go to all those 7 places with you!?! :) I’m Norwegian & Swedish and I’d love to go to Norway and see where my family came from.

  8. Ah, no. I love that idea, so neat. Gonna do that asap, too. :)
    I totally feel you when it comes to the 7 things that annoy you. Slow computers – argh!
    And meeting Ryan Reynolds. Goodness, I guess I would faint. Hihi. He’s so handsome.

    Enjoy the family time, friend.
    Lots of love. XO.

  9. That point with making jam from scratch is so easy. You should give it a try :)!

  10. I love your list of places you’d like to visit and I agree on all counts. Norway and New Zealand especially seem like far away places I’ve got to get to at some point in my life.

  11. This is so much fun! I may borrow it later this week. Hope you’re having fun with your family!

  12. Hmmm….I would try this on my blog. Looks fun!

  13. I love your list of 7’s. I am so with you on the mosquito bites. I hate mosquitoes. I especially hate them when they bug me at night and I can hear them buzzing around my ear, then I hide under the covers hoping I had escaped from the mosquitoes only to find myself with tons of mosquito bites the next day. Lol
