might I add-sleeping over at my house in a toddler bed or a bunk bed, lily's cafe, coming up with names that only you could love for your unborn children, pre-registering future email addresses, bain de soleil, putting shirts on over other shirts, high heels, jars, beef-ham, messing with your food when you are done eating, african chow mein, crockpots, bringing up mayo at opportune times around me, in n out fish fries, mexican coca cola, the way you say burger with a rolling r, baking ipods in the heat of your car, the "she's having a baby" theme song, giving people your unwanted goodies, carrying multiple purses within a purse, lots of ice, most every social gathering, watching shows like "lost" for the love of other people, "free" lunches at Bristol Farms, chili's queso dip (sorry meg for outing you), getting haircuts from a former heroin addict, giving anything the "taylor touch" and making it cuter and more unique than anyone else thought it could be, all your friends-each in a completely unique way, blog stalking, naming models in the pottery barn kids catalog for your niece and wearing your sunglasses indoors.

Nice job on the love list... LOVE it... hee hee. I notices the mac lip glass. I too love mine and it was rudely confiscated at airport security. Apparently it was enought "liquid" that it needed to be in it's own ziplock baggy and I did not have one. I love your blog meg, keep it up!

Brooke- I am so sad that your lip glass is gone! the airporters have never taken my lip glass - yours must have been having a bad day!
I love the stickiness!
