  1. Why is your favorite day of the week monday? I learned new things about you!!!

  2. Because I can reign in the chaos and start new. The beginning of each week is very refreshing to me.

  3. Thanks for your fun list! It is so much fun to get to know a person better through their blogging. I really admire your celebration of small things (Ashley is really good at this too) Often we get caught up in this crazy world and forget to stop and notice all the little blessings around us. Thanks for sharing!

  4. That was fun to read. There's some that are totally me too. (I had two second piercings in college and both grew in too). So cool to learn new things.

  5. You know what is funny when I look at a post like this I usually think oh no 100 things to have to read that will take so long. But I decided to read it anyway and it is funny how much you learn about a person (Does your husband have this list cause I can print him off one if you would like ;)) It is also funny to see some of the things that it made me think about myself. Thanks for sharing!

  6. I didnt know you dont like your Back scratched...who knew.
    I still think your ready for knights and cities.lol!

  7. I didn't check your blog for like 48 hours and had a lot to catch up on! Congrats on your 100th post.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
