But I LOVE SpaghettiOs!!!! And Lunchables were a major stable in my elementary lunchbox days. I loved the bologna ones for some odd reason and course I also lived back when they had ‘cola’ included in them occasionally.

Movies/TV I Want To Watch:

Snoopy, Come Home

I’m on the fence about 2 Broke Girls. I’ve watched a few random episodes and finally got to see the pilot. I thought TBS would run them in order after that but silly me! I’m working on it.

Also, PLEASE, PLEASE don’t judge me for this. I beg you. I’m kind of interested in the Jill & Jessa: Counting On episodes that start back up on TLC on March 15th. I just like those two girls. They are close to my age and just interest me. Fun fact, Jill and I were both born on the same day actually, just a different year. I think those two girls are sweet. I do not care in the slightest about the rest of the family. Thank goodness I can record the specials so I can fast forward through those parts.

I’ve also been super obsessed with cross stitch and I’m in search of new patterns. I’ve found these two that I think I want to do so we will just see. Apparently, it’s my hobby now.
