Pairs and words and counting - OH MY!

Hello PEEPS!

That's right, I'm comparing you to marshmallow chicks. But they're cute and sweet and they multiply! I'm all about the math!

So, we're countable hours out from our first count of the year! Make sure you update your numbers before I wake up Monday morning!!!! GO DO! Or maybe get some more projects done and then update. ;)

And Rare Pairs month comes to an end on Sunday night as well! I finally have an idea so there will be words from me this weekend, and once that's done I'll get a round up post together.

LET'S DO THIS!!! One more word for 2016 breaks down to average 1.3 million a month. LET'S DO THIS!!!
