Happy 100th Post To Me! 100 Things About Me

Wow I can't believe it's been 100 posts already! Time sure flies when you are having fun doesn't it!

From what I understand it is time to do a "100 things about me" post for my 100th post. Here goes, they are in no particular order, just typing as I think of them. Please leave a comment and let me know what you think :) Thanks.

Most of you know I am married and have 4 kids so I'm gonna skip that! I hope you enjoy :)

15. I lived in a bubble as a child, my mom was very protective. (why did she let me go overseas???)

I bite my nails too.

I love the beach too. I am always trying to capture the perfect family picture, too.

I would LOVE to have 4 children. You are so blessed.

Visit me and read my 100 List too.

Thanks for sharing so much about you! It made for a very interesting read. I will have to do this with my 100th post, too!

I wanted to be a toe dancer too, until I realized it was WORK.

I want a BOAT too!!!! OMG. I wish my folks would figure out how to either USE the old ones from my grandpa or else get us a NEW one. (The lake property is the family's. Before you see $$, think trailer from the 70sin the woods).

I just let a hole close so now I am down to two holes too.

Cute list and wonderful idea. I'm sorry my 100th post as passed otherwise I might do the same thing.

Leslie said...

Congratulations on your 100th POST!!!!!

Sandy Jenney said...

Wow..>I would have had a hard time thinking of 100 things. It was great. Feel like I learned lots.

Renee Henderson said...

Very entertaining...will try to do this when I get to 100 posts, if I ever make it. I'm a twitter follower, also.

CanCan (MomMostTraveled) said...

Hmm. We seem to be pretty much opposites, aside from the hair trigger crying reflex.

Lori aka A Cowboy's Wife said...

We are both alike on 48. Well, I used to be. Love grease and feel free to send me some of that Pampered Chef and tupperware!

Congrats on your 100th post!

You are SO cute in this list! I smiled all the way through reading it :). From memory, what most stands out is I love the beach and torture my kids with annual pictures; yes, they will remember this when they have kids of their own. I was gonna marry Kirk Cameron for a while and I'm afraid of heights (but roller coasters hurt my back), too. I don't like (or get) Spongebob and I like to bake/eat cookies.

No wonder we got along at SXSW so well...there's probably more similarities, but I've forgotten 'em by now.

Great list, you're "good people", ya know? :)
