    Hi Nicole, I received a Kindle Fire for Christmas and I LOVE, LOVE it also. I am addicted to reading and this makes it so easy. That is all I want to do. I like going to the Bass Hall so if you can’t get someone else to go with you, I would love to go. Have a blessed day.

    Host a game night next! Babe and I do it once every 2 months or so. SO fun. And you MUST buy and play CRANIUM. We’re addicted.
    Swim in an ocean – Not just any ocean will do. Do it in the Caribbean. Let me know if you choose The Bahamas. I’ll take you for some conch salad. 🙂
    I’ve always wanted volunteer with Habitat for Humanity. Such AWESOME work. When I lived in Halifax, the Nova Scotia branch was always working a bit too far away for me to get there by bus. 🙁 Someday though.

    March – Whaaat?! You want to write a novel? Please, lets talk about this more! I’m in the planning stages of a novel I’ve been wanting to write for a long time. I just joined (as one of the founding members) a really cool critique group on Facebook. The group helps critique the CONCEPT, so you know if you’re headed in the right direction BEFORE you spend 80,000 words on it. Let me know if you want in.
