Amber I love this!
I think that first priority should be applying for wheel of fortune. Then, when you win tons of money, you can do a whole bunch of the other stuff!!! And we can go back to belize and find the manatees and jump in...number 28, CHECK! The book of prayers of the homeless is SUCH a cool idea..annnnnd 91 is a must. lol.
Love you!

Good day! I know this is kind of off topic but I
was wondering which blog platform are you using for this
website? I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had
problems with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
