100TH POST

Wow, I can’t believe I’ve actually posted 99 times prior to this! It’s been a lot of fun blogging, I’m thankful to my cousin and others who encouraged me to start my own blog.

  1. I have enjoyed your blog.. I just want you to know that! I have sat here tonight ‘catching up’ and have really enjoyed your writings… so thanks for that..

  2. I always love posts like this so we can get to know a person. Its neat to see what you have in common with the person as well.

    I had my first baby at 20 too
    I am 5 years older than my husband
    I went to a Christian school from 1 to 9th
    And Green is MY favorite color.

    You also have a lot in common with my sister. I bet we could have a good time.

    Happy 100th

  3. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!
    What a list!!
    I don’t think you said much about you warmth, compassion, and natural ability to undertand what’s between the lines!!

    Don’t feel bad I lived in Arizona for 9 years and never made it to the Grand Canyon. Even my mother got there but not me!!

    I’d give anything to have red hair, naturally or out of the bottle, as long as it was long and on my head. Balding is yucky!!

    You should be very proud you made it to 100 posts. I am really impressed.
    Frank

  4. Seriously? No favorite hockey team?

    I love musicals, too–especially the ones you mentioned. I love Little Women, John Grisham, and A Time to Kill. You need to come back so we can be movie buddies again. Ever wonder how many other people there are that have the same grandparents on both sides? I bet not too many.

    Love you bunches! Miss you! Let’s hit Yellowstone together… whaddya say?
