  1. Love reading all about you! My first concert was NKOTB also but I was in love with Joe. Interesting to learn you are an accountant or studied accounting rather. I don't think I had known that before.

  2. I went to girl scout camp around the same age and hated it sooo much that to this day, I very openly proclaim that if I ever have kids, they will NOT be allowed to be scouts of any kind. Seriously one of my worst childhood experiences. I loved sleep away camp...just not of the girl scout variety.

    I'm headed OOT but will do it when I get back, I promise. Thanks for including me. :)
