No to ever skipped school? What do you call your entire spring semester at UofI:)

Aubrey said...

Ha! I forgot all about college. Hmm...wonder why. Okay, I'll have to check it as a yes huh?

Em said...

You've never gone on a blind date, either? Been kissed under the mistletoe, or skinny dipped outdoors? I'm not sure why those surprise me, but they do. Or maybe I'm just surprised that I've done all of them except been to Florida and Mexico. Can you believe that??? I think I'm the only person left in the world who hasn't been to Florida...especially weird because I've been to almost every other state.

Em said...

P.S. I do like that pic of you and Darrell. :)

Kate said...

I know I'm supposed to reply to this via email, but I'm just going to do it here....I think I've done all but: Gone on a blind date, Been to Mexico, and I don't think I've been kissed under the least not that I can remember.

Man, I'm seeing a trend with us girls and Mexico...we should make that our "sun hat excursion" :)

Also,love,love, love the new picture of you and Darrell!

Aubrey said...

Em, I don't have the best memory, but no, I don't think I've ever been on a blind date. Now, I've been on dates where I'd never formally met the guy, but it was always after seeing them before. I can't remember ever being anywhere that really had Mistletoe. But that one does seem a bit off. And as for the skinny dipping...well, maybe there was an incident in college that involved crazy amounts of wild turkey and a hot tub. Not sure...

Aubrey said...

Yes, I want to go to Mexico with beautiful sun hats. Big crazy ones. And since they have big sombreros, we'll fit right in.

Gail said...

I met Jeremy on a blind date! I have never been to Florida, Mexico, or D.C., I have never been kissed under mistletoe AND I have never skinny dipped or chunky dunked, as I prefer (indoors or out)! I don't recall ever having the opportunity to though either.

This was fun! Thanks!

Aubrey....seriously, wild turkey? Ohhhh- you brave woman! I think I'd have just about the same checks you do. Close enough, anyway! It was so good seeing you again, and hopefully we can stay in touch via blogs. I sent Maggie's book with Liz, so I hope she got it back to her. How funny! It's such a small world. Have a great Thanksgiving!
