  1. Australia is a beautiful place, do go!

  2. First, I must have the money to travel. Then I must get a new passport. I let mine expire in 2008 unused.

  3. these are always such fun posts, aren't they Cassandra??

    also, i'm so glad you specified which dirty dancing movie you love. i'm obsessed with that one. seriously - i've had to re-buy the DVD because I'd worn it out. The new one is an embarrassment.

    1. I haven't seen the remake and don't plan on it. You just can't remake Dirty Dancing!

  4. I did this one a couple of weeks ago and it was so much fun! We have a few things in common (reading, traveling to continents EXCEPT Antartica (lol), watching out kids grow up). I have a daughter but I think I might wanna keep her. . .if you change your mind about taking kids check back with me when she's 13! Have a great weekend Cassie! (Stopping by from Britton's Friday link up!)

  5. I would so love to go to the Summer Olympics, just once!

  6. Yaaaaaay! You did it! I see we have a FEW things in common like Dirty Dancing and the Olympics! I really hope it comes to the U.S. again. I will SO BE THERE! I am also laughing at your response "nothing" with something you say a lot! I'm a lot like that sometimes too! LOL! Thanks for linking up, Cassi!

    1. The swim trials are held here in Indy so why not the whole Olympics? That way I just have to deal with the extra traffic. (As if that'd be any better LOL.)

      Sometimes my saying nothing is what we in high school called a "migrating brain fart" when someone just couldn't think of a response.

  7. Dirty Dancing the original is definitely my fav as well!
