Hey! Just popping in to say hello... I know it has been awhile since I have popped in Happy 2009!.

Sunshine said...

I'm sorry to hear about your son...((hugs))I haven't done nearly as many things as you have...I need to get out more. Or out of the U.S. more. I'll start in Australia.

You make me want to put ONLY Coldplay on my player! I *loved* that song!!!

I did this challenge a few months back, and it's funny to see how much the list has changed! I don't know if there are multiple lists floating around, or if it's just been slowly altered---but my oh my! you've led an exciting life girl!!!

This is my ABSOLUTE favorite Cold Play song :-) I keep trying to think of a post it would match. And hoping that it will snow cause that would work :-)

And I keep seeing this list. I have this huge travel bug. That is never filled. If it just was, I'd totally do this. Otherwise, it will look like I lead a very boring life. Which I sort of do :-)

Oh...and about the peanut butter pie. Cool whip is kinda like whipped cream. But it's non dairy and there is not nearly the fat or calories. Do you have Dream whip there? I am not sure if a complete substitution with whipped cream would work or not...
