My 100th Post! 100 Things About Me

Bad blogger. Bad, bad blogger. I have several months of cool stuff to write about, but I haven't been in the mood to write! I clean missed my blogiversary, and since I've put off blogging for a couple of months, I decided to work on a 100th-post post. Here's everything you never cared about knowing!

I would like to tell you that I new almost all of your 100 things!!! Which makes me feel like I know you better than I thought I did. Just wish I would get to SEE you more! I have your birthday present...maybe it will get to you before it is officially 1 month late! Glad you are blogging again, missed your dose of creativity, humor and thoughts.

Take care - K

I'm happy that you will be doing adoption. I remember longing so badly for a family while I was in the orphanage.

Thank you. I'm by no means a writer except in my head so I'm glad you enjoyed the Hawaii post. I have thousands of photos that does not do justice to the islands beauty.

I read your about me 100. You are quite interesting!
I've always wanted to learn to play an instrument but didn't get the opportunity and because I love music so much...and now my kids seem to, I'll try to help them to do a musical instrument as they get older.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I appreciate it.

Have a lovely Sunday afternoon.

Ha I broke both arms at the same time! loved reading this list and there were about a million other things we had in common but my one minute memory isn't recalling them but I do remember I was going to say something super witty about one of them! Prayers for a baby! I'm going to click on over to the adoption link on the list. I have an opinion about that but I'll wait to read the post before sharing...
