Oh gurl,,, where are my tissues??? Thanks for the love. Believe it or not every one I follow, I read every day and try to make a comment. It's nothing like knowing people are actually reading you and not just pushing the follow link and never coming back. Keep up your good work.

3 Bay B Chicks February 7, 2009 at 5:14 PM are the best! I can't believe that I managed to make it to your list...even land in your top ten!

It has been such a pleasure "getting to know you." You continually broaden my mind and remind me of the importance of moving forward and staying motivated. Thank you!


PS: Now, let's talk about how I can bump Stesha from her number 2 spot. What is it going to take? I am committed to my cause.
