300th Post

In honor of my 300th post today, I am going to give you a list of 300 things about me. Just kidding. Only 100 things. Most people do this for their 100th post because it seems to make more sense that way, but hey, my way is fun too.

100.My best friend, Loopty, remembers details better than anyone I know. Like who my first kiss was.


  1. I think you should be pregnant with identical twin girls now. And yes, I thought you were going to say the Gap.

  2. Mansfield Park is by far my favorite Jane Austen book. It is SOOOOOO good!!!!!!!!

  3. I bet you made your mom cry! Good post! I also thought you would say Gap.

  4. I knew you wouldn't say the Gap...because it isn't a catalog.

    Isn't it strange that your first kiss's cousin is in my class this year? Small world.

    61-63 are not things about you. I feel jipped; you owe me three more!

  5. fun to read, Kiki! I'd probably say the same things about Mom. :)

  6. How does it feel to have the English teacher correcting your list? Do you want to know what's happening on Grey's Anatomy? I'm addicted to it and it is racy -er (sp?) than any soap opera my GrandmaE ever watched. Good for you for not watching it anymore. Cute blonde-y girl twins would be the best! Karoline & Kerstin S------ would be great names :)

  7. That was great...I love Jane Austen novels too...I think I own just about all of them and can read them over and over....


Comments make my day and bring a smile to my face, so thanks!
