Marlene said...

Hey, your comments today are showing up differently... as "Melanie" and no email address attached... then when I click your name, it says "Profile Not Available" .. different blogger account maybe?

Kerrie said...

Lisa said...

Have a great time on your run this weekend!
Can you give a high five to anyone running the Run for Haiti in NYC this weekend (or virtually)? Unfortunately, I'm not getting to run, but I hope it's a huge success!

Katie A. said...

Can you tell I'm stoked?
Hope your neck is better!!! :)

Carly said...

Love the family picture. It came out great!

Unknown said...

Thanks for the high five:) Have a great weekend!!

Unknown said...

And seeing myself referred to as a mom is so strange...I know I am a mom now, but it still feels like a description of someone else. Like how funny the term fiance or husband felt for a while after we got engaged and married.
