Since my blogging has been so crap lately, I decided to post this. Sarah sent it to me via email while I was without a computer. I may have posted it before, but the answers change and I'll try to be cute and elaborate....
1. What time did you get-up this morning? I woke up at 6, but I didn't get out of bed until 9. Luke was on the phone at 6 and for some reason he feels the need to be really loud. He thinks he has to yell when on his cell.
2. Diamond or pearls? DIAMONDS. I don't own any pearls, not that I don't want to or anything. I wouldn't mind having some pearls. I don't own tons of diamonds either. I would like to own more of those.
3. What was the last film you saw at the cinema? I really don't know because it's been forever. Luke doesn't like going to the movies so I never go with him. I don't mind going by myself though. My mom and I like to go together because my dad doesn't like to go either. She has been very busy lately. I think I need to go soon.
4. What is your favorite TV show? I watch a lot of tv

If you do this, let me know!
