I love these so much! Veggiegirl always has these cool lists on her blog. This is almost as much fun as getting mail used to be when I was a kid! Getting mail isn’t so fun now, b/c it is usually just bills. I do look forward to getting my magazines and cards, but that is about it.
Anywho, onto the list! It is a Sweet 100 list!!
First, here are the rules:
1.) Copy this list into your site, including the instructions!
2.) Bold all of the sweets you’ve eaten–or make them a different type color.
3.) Cross out any of them that you’d never ever eat.
4.) Consider anything that is not bold or crossed out your “To Do” List.
5.) Optional: Post a comment here linking to your results–or just post a comment letting us know how many you’ve tried, or what you’re going to try next!
And now, here is…
