Life as I've lived it {part 2}

Here are my moments from 74-50! Enjoy and remember, I'd loooove to read yours, so if you blog them, let me know! Just a refresher, go here to read numbers 100-75!

74. Picking up Niko Harper and bringing him home...and watching Dave fall in love with him.
73. Sarah and I driving around at night {during highschool} and "stalking" our usual suspects!
72. Feeling the rush of pairasailing with my mom for the first time.
71. Laying out with Emily in PCB, FL and spending hours on the beach talking about our futures.
70. My 16th birthday surprise party trip to Chicago.
69. Sarah rolling her incredibly too small and too short handled suitcase through the airports {when we were already running late} during our flight changes on our way to South Padre Island. I will never forget this image and laugh out loud every time I think of it!
68. Accepting a bid to be a member of the best sorority ever: Alpha Sigma Tau.
67. Viewing a double arch rainbow directly in front of me on my way to school one day--so beautiful!
66. Staying up late to watch the series finale of 90210 with my mom.
65. Maw Maw's and my trips to Cracker Barrel and St. Claire Square on days off school.
64. "Slumming" with Carolyn and Tonya through the streets of So-Il. What bad influences ;-).
63. Racing for the Cure in StL!
62. Riding the Tube in London.
61. Falling in instant love with Maui, Hawaii.
60. Emily and I singing {and crying} 'N Sync's "Bye, Bye, Bye" with my car windows down and radio blaring on our last day of highschool.
59. Experiencing the beauty that is the Road to Hana in Maui {twice :-)}
58. Getting Mr. Twist for the first time during a GC summer.
57. Having girl talks while walking the park in GC.
56. Hearing my best girls scream "Get it, Girl!" as I took my bow during my homecoming court curtsy.
55. Taking an entire weekend to work on gradeschool science projects with Paw Paw and now appreciating and loving how he put up with my perfectionist, diva self, at such a young age!
54. Traveling to Hawaii with 31 of our closest and dearest family and friends to watch Dave and I get married. {I will never be able to thank-you enough}
53. Driving 18 hours straight, from Illinois to Texas, to move Sarah and almost running out of gas in the middle of nowhere Oklahoma & watching Sarah freak out.
52. Being a dolphin trainer for a day {my dream job}.
51. Getting Little Caesar's pizza after my dance classes and riding to Maw Maw and Paw Paw's to eat it on their living room floor.
50. Playing the card game, Nerts, with my family and watching everyone be so competitive and funny.

Please, take the time to do this--you wont be dissappointed, and then make sure and share them.

Stay tuned for Numbers 49-25!

Hi, I found your blog post through a search for "Nerts". It is cool to see others that know about the game. I hope you don't mind but I wanted to let you know about playnertz.com, the site for the National Nertz Association. There is a bunch of interesting Nertz information there and you can also find out how to play Nertz online there. I hope you will check it out. Feel free to join and also let your friends and family know. Thanks

Oh no! Where are you teaching? I hope you have a great summer, and your transition between schools should be good - I'm sure you'll fit right in and bring joy to more students!

experiences or what? Can't tell you how many times boy band songs & road trips made cameos in my best H.S. and college memories! These are great.
