What a great list and I loved how you ended it with your ten fave pictures. Thanks so much for visiting my little blog too.

Lucrecia said...

I'm with you 110% on 11, 12 & 13!

One of my favorite pictures ever is with my daughter like 98!

That was so much more fun than gluing 100 corn kernels in the shape of 100 for the 100th day at school!

Thanks so much for such a fun list! It was sweet, funny and truthful. Amazing how many things I was going, yep me too. I was surprised but in total agreement with #12. Most people wouldn't dare state that out loud, it's like you're crazy to admit it but I'm so glad you did and someone else feels the same way.
The way you are about dolls is how I am with clowns.
Anyway, really enjoy your blog and look forward to the next 100 posts.
