  1. anyone know if we can donate blood?

    Hello! I try to regularly donate blood. I have a rare blood type and red cross just loves to call to let me know when it's time lol. They called today but I missed it.

Caramel and chocolate were my best friends.

    I haven't told any of them that I got the sleeve.

    Rewind about 5 years. When I first met them (the sisters) I was 145lbs. They were very nice. Thought maybe I would be friends with the one who was my age.
