Fortune-Telling Book of Names.

Tuesday, December 30, 2008




So I bought a little nick-knack at Pottery Barn the other day. It's a very cute little yellow Fortune-Telling book of names and since I have always had that "mysterious" side to me and I am a sucker for lists of kids names I thought to myself, "Jackpot." It's really interesting so I thought I'd be kind and tell all of YOU your fortune! Eat up. 


I'll start off with mine. 


RACHEL: (Hebrew) You are destined for marital bliss. Your wedding will be just the beginning of the love affaire. (not too shabby)

DONNA: (Italian) All of your sacrificing and selflessness will set you up for even greater success. 

BRIAN: (Irish) You will be publicly recognized for an honorable action. 

KATIE: **unfortunately and strangely, your name is not in here but Katrina is so we'll go with the flow.** (German) You will have an unorthodox but very happy and contended marriage. 

ZACH: (Hebrew) Prosperity and good health are fated for you and your family. 

ANDREW: (Greek) Don't let courage turn into bravado, or your professional relationships will sour.
