Rosey and I


My <3 Rascal (passed away Feb. 4th) and I. SO glad I went ahead and got these done last year. Never thought I'd be this glad.

Favorite music: Country. I really like a bit of everything... if anyone ever looked at my ipod they would have me committed thinking I had multiple personalities lol.

Random fact: I am a 5 year old trapped in a 30 year old body lol. I love to play with toys, play games, play on playground equipment etc etc. That's why I like Disney so much... it's the one place I can act like a child and no one notices. In the real world I get a lot of strange looks lol





I can't find a photo of the dogs at the moment lol I need a better system for organizing all my photos
