    I have a green thumb, but orchids are the one HUGE exception.. and I LOVE them.

    I freaking loved Vanilla Coke and I haven’t thought about it in forever!! I didn’t realize it was hard to find – I just haven’t bought any.. I guess because I haven’t seen it? If I see some I’ll snag it for you. I actually fedex’ed someone a case of Dublin Dr. Pepper once when they were pregnant!

    I’m going to check out those myths.. it sounds interesting!

    p.s. – I tried to add you to linkedin and it wouldn’t let me.. because I only have like 3 people on there! pftz!

    Thanks for sharing those myths. My favorite one was about lifting light weights with a lot of reps to create lean muscles. That’s what I want for my arms. So now I don’t feel bad that I’m just pulling 10 pounds instead of 25.
