I have been tagged so, here goes nothing:

20 Years Ago. . .
1. I was a bit younger than I am now
2. I had just gained a second sister
3. I had just moved to a new house
4. My main designer wear came from Osh Kosh Bgosh

10 Years Ago...
1. I loving the "middle school experience" - not
2. I was wearing a hideous school uniform that included the colors black, white, forest green-no room for accessories or fabulous shoes
3. I was going to my first dance
4. I was wondering if I was ever going to get beyond the age of 14

5 Years Ago...
1. I was into my first year in college
2. I really needed a car

3 Years Ago...
1. I could legally drink - yippee!

I liked the book, Stardust. I can't quite bring myself to watch the movie. Have you? If so, what did you think?

See the movie! I saw the previews and thought it looked strange so I waited to see it in the dollar theatre and I absolutely loved it and that was before I knew it was a book. There are a lot of differences but there are things in the movie that I like better than the book and things in the book that I wish they would have left the same, plus Robert De Niro and Rupert Everett are in it and I just love them. I love the movie!
