I just did a post on the Getty's - then I read your post! Weird! They were totally new to me, but now we sing a lot of their songs in church.

I am totally with you on the LOST party! Oh, yeah!!! January 31st CANNOT come soon enough!

And low-rise jeans, seriously? I mean, you ALWAYS look good! And now I find you also look good in low-rise jeans?! You're so lucky I love you...otherwise..GRRR! LOL!

Love - as always - in the new year! I'm SO glad you posted the list.
