Day 14- a picture of you and your family

Yeah, it's been a while since we've got a picture of our lil' fam. Time for an updated family photo!

The Bros and I
Mom, I swear I had one with you and dad in it too, but I couldn't find it.
I thought everyone might enjoy the mushroom cut I was sporting back in the day......

And one more for good measure!


Day 15- put your ipod on shuffle: first 10 songs that play

Five For Fighting: 100 Years
J.Wride: Snowflake
Better Than Ezra: Closer
Jesse McCartney: It's Over
Paul Cardall: Our Love
Snow Patrol: I Can Wait Forever
Bruce Springsteen: Born in the USA (yeah!)
Andrea Bocelli: Por Ti Volare
Boys Like Girls: The Great Escape
Kings of Leon: Use Somebody

Day 16- another picture of yourself

or something like that.

Day 17- someone you would want to switch lives with for one day and why.

My grandma Virginia.
I never got to know her in this life, so not only would I get to know her better by living a day in her perspective, but I'd also get to spend a day in heaven.
Now that would be a day.

Day 18- plans/dreams/goals you have

see here.

Day 19- nicknames you have and why you have them.

Mezmirelda- From Mom and Dad; not sure why though, but I always liked it: )
Sis-Obviously because I'm the only girl, but I love that just my big brother Jim calls me this.
Vandi La Grande-first nickname Chad ever gave me way back in the day.
Isn't the one you love supposed to give you cutesy nicknames like "Babe" and "Sweetcakes", not names that translate to infer you are of large stature?
Fat Head-Thanks Blake. Loved that one. I swear my heads not really that big.
Vancansom- thank you kel.
Valoo- mandy, was this you? ; )
Trippy- let's just say I had a hard time staying on my feet while playing b-ball.
Slowy- I'm starting to get this strange feeling that what I thought were endearing nicknames were in actuality name calling.
Viggo Mortensen- Chad and his random name giving.
and of course...
Van

Ha Ha! I tell people my nick name was Smelly. Or Smell. Or Smelliann, and they look at me weird. "No, I wasn't REALLY smelly, you see, it just rhymed..."

I stopped revealing my old nickname ;).
I think you have pretty good ones. Also, the mushroom cut is how I remember you as the goddess of Osmond Elementary.

Did I marry the daughter of William Wallace?

pmb, I remember calling you Smellycan. I actually thought of that when I wrote down vancansom. ha! And as for the mushroom cut....wow, what was I thinking. I think I was more the warrioress of Osmond, rather than the goddess: )

Those were good days though, huh.

And chad.....you wish.
