3. Finish this house!
4. Visit all of the National Parks, which many I have seen but I want Kevin and Nova to see them.
5. Finish my BBQ dress from Gone with the Wind which calls for over 1,500 button holes in the neckline.
6. Paint a picture

My word! 1,500 buttonholes! That's quite a task. I get scared of a dress that asks for more than 5. :D

Hi Nikki,
Thank you so much for the sweet comments you left about our bunnies. I absolutly adore them. And yes Miss Bell Bell is quite the Princess and very loveable, how could you not love that sweet little face and sassy attitude : ) I have read some through your blog, so beautiful, and your Son is a little sweetheart. Such cute pictures of him picking apples. I hope you and your family had a beautiful weekend.

Hey Nikki! Oh, goody! You did the seven things post.... What fun! Would you believe that my hubby doesn't care anything about sports either. I love that about him! We have got alot in common, that's definately one of them...too funny! I can't stand listening to sports on tv either. Even when the news wants to talk about sports...I turn it as fast as I can! LOL! Hope you have a great day!
