Congratulations on your 100th post.

I guess having kids gives you gray hair. My mother used to always color her hair as long as I can remember— she had my sister when she was 25 and me when she was 30.

I currently have about 25 more posts to reach my 100th. Looking forward to the next 100.

Brandy said...

Holy crap!! You're good!! i don't think i could come up with 100 things. Congrats on your 100th post. I'm not sure i could get to 100. I'm already running out of things to write about...lol. And the things I could write about would probably not go over well.

Jen Sue Wild said...

Joy said...

Well why can't you tie a cherry stem with your tongue now? What happened, lazy tongue? ;o)

I love these lists because you learn such a lot about someone in such a short space of time. And no 4 is also m,y favourite (And I spell this wrong because I live in South Africa and we do British english here, not American) We also spell "Colour"

That's a great list! I hadn't broken a bone or had stitches either until recently....Now I have an ugly scar to show that I had stitches.

Mrs. Jelly Belly said...

Love your list!

And I love to color with colored pencils, too. It's so fun (especially when you add rubber stamps and the Magic Colored Pencil technique - have you tried?)

Eve said...

Great list! Happy SITS day! :)

Housewife Savant said...

Happy SITS day today!
I'm with you; I spend way too much time on my arse, fb'ing and blogging. When not on the computer I read, so I'd love to know; what were your 6 books in a month?
Oh..and that sandwich you love - whoa! Enjoy one today, with a great, big fountain soda, and CONGRATS.

Christy said...

I think we all want #97 sometimes - and it's NOT selfish - it's normal!

Preston said...

I wonder if I could come up with 100 things and keep them as interesting as yours was. Happy SITS day!

Tanielle said...

Awesome! So fun to learn more about you. Congrats on your SITS day!

Kari said...

Hey there from SITS!

Cool list, thanks for sharing. I went to nursing school, too. I only worked as a nurse for about six years, then quit. I miss the money, though, not the stressful, understaffed hospital stuff. And, chocolate and peanut butter rocks! Seriously, I just ate like four Reese's peanut butter eggs yesterday.

Ryan and Katie said...

Happy 100th post!!

Mama King said...

You are so funny! I'm glad I was able to read about you on SITs day. I'll be checking back to read more!

Chelsie and Nicholas said...

I to have moved 10 times in 14 years and only left Roanoke once-- for school... if that counts!

Happy SITS day!

What A Card said...

How fun to share! And congrats on 100 posts :)

I also have a super weird obsession with ink pens and am ridiculously picky (and get insanely excited if I discover a new good one!)

My New 30 said...

Wow, thanks for sharing that (and I read every single one of them)! We actually have MANY things in common too.

Congrats on your 100th post and Happy SITS Day!

Craftymoose Crafts said...

Visiting from Sits! What a fun post. I might "borrow" the idea for my blog sometime...if I can come up with 100 things!

Oz Girl said...

Congrats on 100 posts! If I would have become addicted to blogging when I posted my first story in March 2007, I would be at 100 posts too! :) But I just became totally addicted after the first of this year. You are right... I feel like I am fitting everything else around blogging, but I love it!

I was married twice also, and not proud of it (also). 3rd time's the charm in my case, I have THE most wonderful man and love him to death. Sometimes we need to grow up, and I finally did.

I lived my life in Ohio and moved a crazy amount of times like you for awhile, something like 9 times in as many years, then finally bought a small house in Akron and lived there 16 years. Moved to Kansas last July to be with my hubby, and I've never regretted the move... I love it here, EXCEPT I miss my son!

Your girls may be young still, my son is 27 and married, but I see a mirror of myself in you. In that case, I will tell you, the best is yet to come! :)

Shell said...

Visiting from SITS...I love playing Canasta on Pogo, too!!

Vickie said...

Happy SITS day!

I love reading these things.

About four times a day I do this:
Facebook, Twitter, blogging. Then sometimes my email.

I try not to misspell words. I keep a dictionary by me when I am blogging. I want to appear that I have a brain. Though sometimes it is mushy:)

Our Crazy Life said...

Stopping by from SITS to say Hello. It is amazing how much we have in common, I could use about 85 of your 100 in my own 100 things about me!!

Marrdy said...

That was cute. Happy 100th post!

Motherboard said...

Hi,
Stopping by from SITS... I am the exact same way with Coffee... Love the smell hate the taste. Fall is my favorite time of year too!

Happy Queen for the day to you!

Laura said...

Happy 100th. I don't think I'll ever make a 100...not anytime soon anyway.

Brandy said...

#88 actually sounds pretty good! When I was little I used to eat A1 sandwiches. Just bread and A1...it was soggy but really good.

Of course I ♥ A1...

C.G. the Foodie said...

I also hate spiders!!!!! Ack!

Thanks for sharing and congrats on being close to 200 now!

Heather said...

Happy SITS day!

I thought I was the only one who did #62! My teachers always complimented me on my note taking though!

southernrose said...

This was a great idea - 100 on your 100th. (I might steal the idea :) It's amazing how lists like these make you feel close to someone you have never met and still have so much in common. Happy SITS day.

Kate Karyus Quinn said...

Wow, congrats on reaching 100 posts and being able to come up with 100 things about yourself. I had that Facebook meme where I had to list 25 things and I struggled to think of that many things about myself!

resplendentlife said...

Yay!!! 100th post!!!

meg said...

Wow! That was impressive. I think I could maybe make it to 10.

Laura said...

That's a great list. I think I would have run out of things to say.

Jacky said...

Wow, I would not have the patience to list 100 things about me. I'm just doing a giveaway for my 100th, only 4 posts away! =)

Happy SITS day!

KBroome said...

Angeline is a beautiful name! My first car was a Firebird. T-tops included. Needless to say IHATED driving to school!

Just A Mom (Call me JAM for short) said...

Happy 100th! That's quite a list! Happy SITS day!

Hot Tub Lizzy said...

I read #2 as My OLDER brother is 15 years younger than me... and I sat and sat and sat... trying to figure out how that worked. Then I re-read... oh... yeah.

And regarding #11... you USED to? What happened that you lost that skill?

Mimi said...

Great post! I also have a thing for pens. I refuse to use black ink, also.

I have now passed this down to one of my sons!

Cindy said...

What a wonderful post! You & I are a lot alike!!!!

The Mama said...

WOW! I like that. I am from Canton Ohio. Nice to meet you. Congrats on your sits. I have been thinking about Auburn. And $100 for NOT getting one, I would have taken it to. Your parents marriage success, I wish I could say the same :( It is something to be proud of!!!

Goldibug said...

Fun post! I don't know if I would have thought of doing something like this.

Mammatalk said...

Good for you! You made it to 100. An accomplishment.

Michelle said...

NO! wanting to come home to an empty house and watch/do/eat whatever you want is NOT selfish. MAN, don't we all want to do that sometimes?

Reeni♥ said...

Thanks for sharing!!

jubilee said...

I love pens too! My husband accuses me of stealing all "his" pens. Somehow they do all end up in my purse, but it's not a deliberate thing.

Thanks for sharing so much of yourself.

Happy SITS day!

Very interesting. YOu and I have a lot in common, I will have to follow you now :)

Dianna said...

Rachael said...

I'm TOTALLY a pen snob too! When I have a job, I bring my own pens in because I don't like using the crappy ones they provide. I also like to color with crayons/colored pencils and love Dover coloring books. Happy 100 posts!

Melissa said...

Holy crap..I could never come up with 100 things! And who doesn't love chocolate & peanut butter?
