1. I had a sexy little "beauty mark" on my bra line that you could see wearing a bathing suit. Long story short, a dermotologist tested it for skin cancer (it was clear) and left a horrible raised scar that looks like a third nipple. And NO bathing suits cover this thing! I have a NUBBIN! I wonder if my next child will make the same mistake your daughter did...

37. How long is your hair? It looks short in the picture!

44. SETTLERS! I knew I liked you. Have you tried Sea Farers of Catan???

45. ME TOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That cafeteria tray made the BEST sled!

55. Me too! 56. Same 57. Mmmm...that's my husband's dream.

72. Man, I feel you here too. My husband's still praying about the adoption thing...

Okay, I officially have a friend crush on you. You're my kinda girl!!! Congrats on sticking with it and finishing the list. Your kids will enjoy reading that someday! (you should scrapbook it...)

I love it! I know so much more about you now. We do have a lot in common. Thanks for forcing yourself to do it! :)

Kimba said...

I read the whole thing! Thanks for sharing about yourself!

My roommate and I stole the cafeteria tray and DID go sledding. The BEST!

Katy Lin :) said...

i love this! thanks for posting it! it's fun to learn more about people and see how much we have in common :) congratulations on your 100th post!

Well, we may not have all 100 things in common, but enough of them that I definitely think we could be considered "kindred spirits." :)

You met him in Memphis? I live literally a stone's throw from Memphis! Well, a really, really long throw, but still.

everychapter said...

I love your list! I wholeheartedly agree with 49 of them-(yes, I counted- how's that for a time waster!) :)
I especially agree with #24, #32, #64, and #72. Regarding #37- you're impressive!
Thanks for doing your 100- It was so fun to read about you. I'm actually really excited about mine, (coming up in 12 posts), I guess that's kind of egotistical- hmmm, maybe I should work on that....

Kristi said...

Loved it! You seem like such a neat person. I'm glad I stumbled across this site. God Bless!

PS I love coffee too, Hot, or Iced!

Orts said...

I love finding similarities with new friends :)! I just skimmed your list (have to come again later to read more) - but already cool connections . . . We lived in PA (Philly area) for several years, my hubby is from NJ. And I'm from the Memphis, TN area. Where were you and your husband working on your missions' trip?
