YAY! This was great - I feel like I learned soo much about you. (Like I said, I normally can' t read these things all the way through, but with you I totally did!)

I can't believe you shave your legs every time you shower - I'm impressed and FAR too lazy to do that. :)

Also? I didn't know you were short as well! (Not as short as me, but stilll.) And we wear the exact same size shoes. :)

I love Johnny Cash, too. Great list!

Amanda said...

Great list - I'm glad to have learned more about you!! Mine is coming up so watch for it!!
You were 8 weeks early - your due date must have been right about my birthday (May 20).. And, I LOVE Ellen too!! She is SO funny - when I was out on maternity leave I got SO addicted! Here she comes on at 3pm and Oprah comes on afterwards!!!
Enjoyed this post!!!

Erika said...

I knew most of these things but learned some new things about you...hahaha! Never knew you shaved your legs everyday...LOL! You know I love my trashy reality TV too...LOL! And thanks for setting me up with my hubby-to-be!!

Love ya lots! xoxoxo...Can't wait to see you on Saturday.

Future Mom (Heather) said...

Congrats on your 100th post! I am also another of your set ups - so thanks again. Married 3 years & still like each other LOL!

I am happy to sat that I knew a lot of these but also learned some new ones. I can't believe you still shave so much...you must go through so much shaving cream! I shave like once in the winter and only when i have to wear shorts/dress/bathing suit in the summer :)

I also love camping with you & going to Atlantic City...I haven't been there in over 2 years though so this weekend will be really fun and special!

Thanks for being such a great friend and getting me into Sex and the City and helping me with my cooking!

EP said...

Fun! I know you a lot better now! (:

You were seriously a VH1 intern? How'd you score that? Was it awesome? My cousin was in NYC for 9-11, too, and was really scared. I can imagine it was frightening to be left alone for so long that day. :/

Also, what are your tattoos of?

Jenn said...

I love learning things about people. Funny I would have the same answer for about 8 of them and my hubby thought I was the only weirdo that hates getting presents cause it make me feel almost sick from freaking out about people watching me and I do not have Happy Birthday sang to me , I hate it ! Congrats on your 100th post !

Marni Tiani Self said...

You just confirmed you're as cute as I thought you were. :)

You can come and stay with me in Cali anytime. ;-)

Christy said...

Holy guacamole! That was a lot of information! My first car was a Saturn too. I currently drive a mini van because I am a lame housewife.

Pam said...

Wow! That was awesome. I know I won't remember that all! ;) When 9-11 happened, I wasn't in NY, but I was teaching in MD and I was only 15 minutes from DC. I was teaching at a school that was mostly military and many parents worked at the Pentagon. It wasn't the loss at NY, but it was tough for us there too.

I also was working there when the DC sniper hit those areas. that was VERY scary b/c I drove past the school he shot a student at- every day on my way to work. He would have been there when I drove by. That freaked me out.

Okay- sorry- that turned into a comment about me!

Thanks so much for letting us learn so much about you!

Tipp said...

You go girl! I can't even imagine to attempt this!

Katelin said...

Danielle said...

Yay! I am pretty sure I knew almost all of that. You shave waaaay to much. I shave like once a year. haha I'll never forget 9/11and talking to you on the phone. Can't wait for us girls to be together this weekend.

Auburn Kat said...

That was a great list!! I learned a lot about you.

Mommy Mechanics said...

Oh I am far too lazy to shave my legs everytime in the shower, I'm lucky if I get to twice a week. I know yuck! Congratulations on 100 posts!

Melanie said...

I am also 5 feet (almost) 3 inches tall.

8 weeks early- and you were tiny- wow!

And you shave your legs everyday? I shave mine every month ;)

THopgood said...

It's so fun learning about you. We have a lot in common.

the DVR is a wonderful thing...then not only would you get to watch both Oprah AND Ellen...but you would get to watch both with NO commercials!

PS...so when are you getting married? ;)

Momma On The Go said...

Happy 100th post! I love to cook, MUST sleep with lost of covers no matter what time of the year it is and have a tatoo on my back that I want removed too!
