    I have a new foster... and I don't think she's going to stay a foster for long!

    I might be going to see Justin Bieber in concert again when he comes back to the US for the 2nd leg of his tour! And he's changing up the show for the 2nd leg so it's gonna be different! He's not coming near here though, so we're gonna have to fly. We're doing research right now on how much plane tickets + how much concert tickets are going to be. Right now it looks like Chicago is our best bet. Which is awesome because I've always wanted to go! It would be my mom, my sister, and I though. I worry about how safe it will be for three women in Chicago at night...can anyone who lives there chime in?

    Totally safe. I've been to Chicago numerous times, and as long as you're staying in touristy areas and not wandering around shady neighborhoods and side streets, you'll be fine :) Use city smarts like you would anywhere.

    Thank you!! We actually found cheaper tickets in Indianapolis and its only a 5 hour drive so we may do that instead. We can split the gas cost, and save a lot of money because we have friends in that area that we can stay with.

    I am about to send off my final paperwork to hopefully becoming a permanent resident in Canada! I cannot wait. The stress from this has caused breakouts, grey hairs even. I am so glad it's almost over.

    My mom's company is moving to a much bigger city (she currently lives in my hometown with a population of a whopping 800) and the BF and I are considering moving with her! I'm so excited! It has a university and jobs and I would get to be by my mom, grandmother and brothers!

    I hope it all works out, because it's sounding too good to be true.

    Ooh fun, have you ever been? I've been twice; I love it :) If you go to the beach, make sure you go to the local beaches, not the crowded ones in the city!

    I haven't. We're going to likely spend half the time in Waikiki and then the second half on the north shore. It's still very early planning though.

    If you have any suggestions let me know!

    I hope it all works out for you, I also am always cautiously optomistic & alwatys try not to jynx myself when things are going "too good" LOL but in the back of my mind I am always like "there has to be a catch 22" LOL which in itself is a jynx I guess.

    On another note Thanks to you guys I have now successfully raised 50 (yes 50!!!!) dragons to adulthood & have been awarded a bronze trophey!!!!!! Your clicks & views got me there, thanks :D :D. I know its kind of dorky but its my little hobby LOL LOL

    I'm not a huge fan of Oahu. I much prefer Maui, and I'm dying to go to the big island or Kauai. If you do end up on Oahu, I'd just do 2 nights in Waikiki and then move on to the less citified areas.
