We posted the winning Dare and I Dare You to accept the challenge!
We now have to see how we can reconcile it with pirate day - we said we will leave the Dare up till September 20.... Oh my - we might actually have to accept the Dare IN pirate clothes... no that doesn't work - we'll come up with something!
Maybe we have the pirate day festivities on my husband's blog...
