100 Things about Me...

Here we go...I have felt challenged to attempt this post...A few of my blogger friends have done this, so I thought, "Why Not?"

100. I am short...5'1 and 1/2 inch to be exact. People laugh at me for adding the 1/2 inch...but it is there....so I don't see why that is so funny.
99. I am not happy with my weight. The reason for going to the YMCA 4 days a week, drinking water, and trying to count calories....I guess I feel better too...But I want the weight to change!
98. I didn't used to worry about what I ate...and I thought I was "fat" then...I wasn't fat, I was stupid.
97. Self esteem isn't one of my strong attributes....(as you can tell from the previous entries)
96. Sarcasm is...(my mom reads this blog, and she will agree with me, but doesn't think I should be proud of it...I can't seem to help it)
95. I wear a size 5 1/2 shoe, and I can get really cute shoes for a really good deal....Mary Kate and Ashley make the cutest summer shoes....=)
94. I think I like shoes so much because of the really small size....makes me smile...dumb, I know.
93. I am a nurse....and I don't like it...never have...I am not one of those " I always dreamed of being a nurse, so I could help people" kind of people...I chose my profession because there was no math in the curriculum....Sad, I know.
92. My kids don't think I am a "real nurse" anymore...because I work at a call center...I don't feel like a "real nurse" either, and I kind of like it that way....
91. I hope to eventually quit work, as a nurse, and stay home with my 3 children...I love them.
90. I have a small photography business, Still Moments Photography, and I love it...it is a dream come true for me....
89. I played volleyball for 5 years when I was in school...It was my favorite sport...
88. My coach would take me out when I got to the front row...had something to do with me being to short to spike the ball....Never understood that one...

I was a salesman as a child...I sold "Neighborhood Magazines" (that I made out of paper and staples...I wrote all the articles, of course!), Fruit roll up stand, even put on large stage productions, and charged admission...(ask my dad about this one...he wasn't too happy) Always an entrepreneur.
84. I hit a boy in elementary school, and had to sit out for recess...
83. I wouldn't eat my lima beans in kindergarten, and had to stand in the corner...My other teacher, whispered in my ear, and told me not to worry about it, and then she ate the lima beans...she holds a place in my heart.

Yay! Your list was so fun. I love the "I wasn't fat. I was stupid" line. Been there! I laughed about you going into nursing because math wasn't a part of the degree. Girl, you missed your calling. Journalism also required little more than basic math... ta da... photography! But you got there anyway. Also loved #85. My kids tried to charge Bruce admission to one of their shows, too. Guess what? He haggled them as low as they'd go and then said he had no money, so they let him see the show for free. See? This is what it's like living with Bruce. Ahh, one more unsolicited comment. Kudos to you on #3. Bruce, too. I envy that, especially when Clay asked me if I ever smoked or drank alcohol. Spencer and Allison haven't asked yet. And thank the good Lord Clay hasn't asked any more probing questions. Don't quote me on this, but I really consider lying.

I am loving the list! Math? Hate it! In college I did make A's in math, but mostly because I hung around smart people. I drink coffee all year round, but hate coconut. I am 5'2" and 1/2 - people tease me for the 1/2 ---I am 1 inch taller than you. Ihave always thought I was fat - sometimes I really was, but when I weighed 112 I wasnt, but I still thought I was. Sarcasm is my way of getting through life. I personally loved Bo Duke and Ponch (although he is a creep now). I heart the beach! We have so much in common, but I just have one question........what is a jump drive?

That was such a great post!!! #17 I think..I have the same..I never thought anyone else would...and along with the little ceaser person, don't forget the crazy Liberty Tax..on the side of the road...Drives me crazy!!!! I learned alot! I admire the Never drink or Smoke or Drugs, you should be VERY PROUD, as well as your parents!! That was wonderful, when Im off I will try to post...Dont think Im interesting enough to get a 100 but I will try! BTW I love the new background! Looks Terrific!

Nicole said...

Your blog looks much better now! Proud of you for figuring it out! As I was reading yours and thinking about doing one myself, I have no idea how to pick different things since we have so much in common!! I guess I will try but I am sure it is time consuming so who knows when it will get done!!

travisb said...

Loved reading all the things about you. It is always interesting to see all the things you may not know about a person. You are an amazing mom ---- your family is blessed to have you and we are blessed to know you.

I know you love beach....will you ever forget our beach trip a few years back. Oh was it a doozy or what. I am sure you have all the crazy details written down, but it was truly a memorable trip for so many reasons. Love trips down memory lane........
