Oh no! You got sucked into the blogging world!!!! I'm glad it's you and not me my friend. I've got a been there, done it attitude about the whole blog thing. Sorry!
Eventhough I still post pictures on mine for family journaling purposes, it's been a relief to not have to keep up with it for the sake of others. My only advice is to make sure you are doing it for you! I'm hoping I'll get a chance to pop in and see what you are up to on occasion. I don't check blogs much anymore so don't feel bad if you don't see many comments from me. You might have to remind me to check it like you did today. Hope you have fun with it. BTW, I love the name of your blog (because I know the story behind it) and your 7th grade picture. You are lovely my dear!

Kari, I went to Wicked in NY in Feb. and won the lottery tickets. . I paid $25 bucks for 2 seats on the FRONT ROW. The people behind me paid $400 each! It was so great. Now my whole family is hooked on it, so I'm glad you are as obsessed as me. I like, "For Good" but my kids like, "Popular" OK, gotta run, it's 5:53 and I'm thinking about showering today.

Kari, all I have to say is I am so relieved "For Good" made the list! I am so glad you are doing a blog, because I was just thinking the other day that you needed a project! (JK) I love you so and the more I get to know you, the more I love you! Fantastic photo, by the way. Thanks for sharing and I can't wait to read on!

I have such a hard time believing that litte Kari Robbins has a swearing habit!!! I'm shocked! That's hilarious, though......
I just still have you in my memory as you were in high school. :)
It was fun reading your blog. I copied you and did the "five things" on mine too.
love ya.

Natalie said...

Oh Missy, that is so @#$% funny. Seriously, I laughed out loud.

I just wanted to let you know that I'm impressed that you were able to release the inner 13 year old! I'm excited to see your "daily Christmas cards," and hopefully more pictures of your #%$@ cute kids!

Amber Robbins said...

Cute blog. I love the name "You're Pretty Too."
You should create a post that explains the name.

Kelly said...

FYI - I have NEVER received more than 4 comments on any of my posts, so that inner 13 year old should be feeling pretty popular right now!

It still cracks me up that little, innocent Kari has a swearing problem! I love the blog!
