    You went skinny dipping!?! I was wondering what ever happened with the law suit?

  3. Whitney Says:

    Did NOT need to know about the skinny dipping! 🙂

    Didn’t you sing a solo in children’s choir back at Faith? I remember singing at least a trio with you and Brette Quick I’m pretty sure, and I thought you had a solo in there too 🙂 Anyways, I think you should bold it 🙂

      I don’t remember! I have the worst memory ever… I always tell my college roommate, Candie, that she’ll have to tell my kids about my college experience because I’ve even forgotten lots of things from then! Sad, huh? Oh, did you know that Brette went to college where I did? It was so weird; apparently they lived like an hour from me the whole time I was in high school…
