SarahHub said...

You have never had Jello shots??? I am tempted to drive to your house and make them for you.

Land of Lovings said...

oooh. I am going to have to go through this list and figure out what some of this stuff is and whether or not I could possibly stomach them.

And, wow. Jello shots sound so good right now. Too bad I have to wait at least 5 months before I can have any! : )

Brandi said...

I'd do one but I'm afraid it would all have a big fat X on it! : )

Loved this and your list though!
