  15. I LOVE paper lanterns! Always afraid they will catch on fire. This summer I bought some to decorate around my yard and they had a battery operated bulb! BrillianT! After a summer with nothing but sunshine, I had to throw my lanterns away as they had faded to no color!
    Great choice!
    Happy hunting!

  58. Well, my wife and I both studied in France (that's where we meet) and we both went to Barcelona with our friends (before we were ever dating), and organized chaos is a good way to describe the trip! I LOVED Barcelona.

    I also went to the U of I. Hawkeyes play tonight against Wisconsin :)
