    Great fun, and your Orchid is gorgeous!!

Oh, I am so jealous you swam with the dolphins! :-) You sound like fun, too. I won't do this tag, but I will likely do an occasional 5 Facts Fridays...I've already come up with a number of things! :-) I wouldn't bungee jump but I would love to rappel. Oh, and your hubby sounds fun too...mine keeps me laughing as well!
