My cousin Michelle did this on her blog and I thought it would be so fun to do...until I read through the whole thing and saw how many things she had done and realized how LAME mine would be.

WOW! You have done a lot of stuff! I might be embarrassed by my results!

Noelle said...

the only way i'd get more than you is if i did this as a 'couples' questionnaire. abe's done a ton more stuff than me. but honestly, this is just what happens when you get married young, have kids young and are poor. all at the same time. :) sacrifice today and then when we are 45 and our kids are out of the house we can party like there's no tomorrow and go to all of these really cool places. not that i'm wishing my kids left the know what i mean.

Alicia, I have met Sheri Dew. That counts right? I have also met matt from so you think you can dance, and I saw Seal on the strip last JanuaryAnd my mission companion from Italy was a famous Rock Star in Italy before she joined the church. And I got an email from Glenn Beck a few weeks ago. I met him online you could say.

Alicia said...

Wow, Michelle, that's a long list. I almost didn't highlight it on mine until I realized I met Stephenie Meyer!

My list would be just as lame, although you've done some things I've never done, so maybe yours isn't as lame as you think. I've decided I need to be more adventurous.
