OKAY...first of all, can i just say that i am so incredibly happy with blogger today?!?! yep...you read that right. and anybody who has ever used blogger knows that we don't say that too often. now, i can upload MORE than 5 pictures at a time, and they load IN ORDER!!! maybe i'm the only one who had issues with this... if so, don't tell me...ignorance is bliss. :-)
