45. We need a king sized bed...the queen aint cuttin' it.

46. I love moon lit strolls on the beach....just kidding.

47. I love moon lit crab hunts on the beach, for real. My kids think a beach trip isn't complete with out that.

48. I feel sorry for my husband b/c he has given up so many hobbies to spend more time with us. He used to show horses. Now his hobbies are our kids sports!

50. For that reason, we are too cheap to pay a babysitter.

51. I am not too cheap to have someone help me clean my house.

53. My dad never meets a stranger. He still keeps up with his friends from childhood. I wish I were more like that.

54. I have never heard my mom or her mom(my Nene) say an ugly word about anyone.

55. I'm a little obsessed with children's clothes, Christmas cards, outings with my girlfriends, and taking pictures of my kids(and whomever else's are around). I also HAVE to iron everything, even my kids school uniforms. I'm not the best at ironing, but it has to be done!

56. My favorite stores are Harolds(when they aren't looking too Coldwater Creekish...aka mamaw), Banana Republic, Ann Taylor Loft, and Boden.

57. I don't like taking baths, I don't feel clean afterwards.

58. My kids make me laugh a million times a day.

59. I'm really bad about exaggerating.(see post 58)

60. I have a bad habit of pinching my nose while I talk to people. It's weird, I know.

61. I HATE grocery shopping.

62. And I don't like to cook.

63. I do like to eat, though, and now I'm trying to shed my left over baby weight from 3 kids.

64. I have had 4 miscarriages. We don't know why. I'm okay with that.

65. I was induced with all three of my babies.

66. I nursed all three of my babies over a year...I loved it.

71. I went skiing on my honeymoon. It was WAY fun.

72. I don't like cheesy email forwards...sorry friends. :-)

73. Sorry folks, but I also don't like music on blogs. I just keep my computer muted. It drives me crazy...

74. I also almost never watch a video on some one's blog. It takes too long.

75. When we were dating, my husband flipped us over on his 4-wheeler. We were fine...hallelujah!

78. I love Gerber daises.

79. When my husband took the Bar, he had a HORRIBLE stomach virus and my mom had to give him IV fluids just so he could sit up and take the test. We had two babies and I was super nervous, but he passed the first time...He's a super hero and my kids think so too. One more about him...he's a REALLY good Dixie Youth baseball coach. Everyone wants to be on his team. He puts 110 % into it.

80. I wish I could have one more day with my boys when they were little. It's killing me that they are so big now.

81. I'm creative, but not crafty...if that makes sense. On the other hand, I'm coordinated yet clumsy.

82. I'm so ready to build a house, but I love our location and I'm not sure I'm willing to give that up just yet.

83. My favorite place to eat is Zoe's Kitchen. I order the Lean Turkey Pita EVERY time. I also love Bonefish and PF Chang's.

84. I wish we had a Swoozies in Mtgy, and a Pottery Barn Kids.

85. My husband is so excited that we now have a Dick's Sporting Goods.

86. I think #86 was actually about him, not me...but I'm running out of things to say. Okay...here's another one. I like to be in charge. That is not a surprise to most of you.

87. I love my Nikon SLR!

88. I worked in Labor and Delivery part time while the boys were little. It was a good experience, but I have no desire to go back.

89. I absolutely love my boys teachers this year! Wonderful Christian women!

90. I used to be tan... For some reason, it's a lot harder for me to get one now.

91. We are a weather obsessed family. We always know the forecast, especially Ford.

92. Once this past year, David and I got so tickled(that means we couldn't stop laughing in southern slang) in church we had to get up and leave. VERY mature. Our song leader was making hilarious gestures and faces(not on purpose).

93. My parents wouldn't let me see E.T. growing up. I still haven't seen the whole thing.

94. My sister and I used to sneak and watch soap operas(Days specifically) when mom wasn't looking. (sorry you had to find out this way mom).

95. I was baptized when I was 11.

96. I could watch "hey it's Franklin" all day with my kids.

97. One of my favorite indulgences is to check http://www.celebrity-babies.com/ every day.

98. When we were little we had a dog named Noodle. One day we came home from school and my parents had given her away. We all three bawled for hours.

99. I hate the Calvin bumper stickers, but I love the one that says honk if parts fall off. That one always cracks me up.

100. I still have to sleep with a light on b/c I am a huge scaredy-cat.

101. And one more for good measure... my kids will only eat Spaghetti with Wal-mart brand sauce. Weird.

That was great..I actually laughed outloud at some of them. I see we are total opposites on a few things; (baths, grocery shopping.) Interesting. I'm sorry you have to turn the volume down when you get on my blog...Oh well, I love the songs!!!:)

Very fun!

I enjoyed this!! My mom was the same way...she wouldn't let us watch Days either. Now I did see E.T. But she was very picky about what we watchted and I didn't understand then but I do now!!! I hate forwards and songs on blogs too. I do not even read forwards..no matter what it says. I LOVE Christams cards. I already have the dresses, the cards, the setting, and everything for this year. I know it's crazy but I just love it!!

Nancy Hood said...

Kristi said...

That was funny - I loved every one!

Kristen said...

I mean, I feel like I know you so personally now. Some of those literally made me laugh at loud. Like laughing at people when they fall. I do that too!!

Keri said...

It was weird to read a lot of those and already know them about you and they still crack me up! You are a great friend and wanted to take this chance to tell you that you are loved!
