Hello Jennifer b., I'm just b.
We had quite a few same 3's. Brian Regan is sooo funny and clean-that is rare! Fun post here, I'm a fan of your stuff.

Jennifer B. said...

Toni- Yep, I did it! And by the way, did you think Gopher was kinda cute, or was that just me?

b. Hello b. and welcome! What a coincidence -- I loved your colostomy post and I am a huge fan of your witty comments that I see around blogtown. I am excited to read more of your blog.

Elizabeth-W said...

This was a great list! I love these thingies. Sort of like a photograph of a person.

Rebecca said...

No comprendo: life without sugar.
"change a diaper in less than 6 seconds--one handed" -WOW!!! really? That's awesome.
This meme is so fun :)

Jennifer B. said...

NCS -- Yes really, but only if the diaper is wet. Diapers with surprises are another story. Hmmm. Maybe I'll time myself tomorrow. I'm sure the blogging world would be fascinated by my diaper changing ability.

Michelle S. said...

Which sister makes you laugh?

Jennifer B. said...

Welcome Michelle!
All of my sisters make me laugh.

So glad you found my blog...'cause yours rocks. If it's not to creepy - we are kindred spirits. A pretty bold declaration having read two or three posts and one meme, but there you go. =P We were only in Issaquah for 3 months sadly. Looooved it there! We were in the "historic downtown" just a block away from the playground. Could walk everywhere. I miss that place often!
