100 times later

So this makes the hundredth time I've sat at a computer (or laptop) and tip tapped out my inner thoughts or ramblings. I want to first make sure that everyone realizes that nothing has been wrong, my absence has been all of my own doing. I'd decided to start some of my projects for holiday gifts and honestly just never sat down and turned on my computer.

I've been reading over some of the 200+ posts that my bloggy friends have made during my self-inflicted hiatus and came across one that inspired me. An online friend of mine has recently written about the voyeurism of reading blogs. As she puts it its very akin to watching TV shows. And you know what, she's RIGHT!! I read about all your lives in your blogs and find myself anxiously awaiting the next post of your life saga. I want to meet all of you, but can see myself being instantly "star struck" upon seeing you in real life!

But how much do each of you REALLY know about me?!? Well, here's your chance to get to know a little more about me. In honor of my 100th post, here's 100 things about me:

Texan Mama @ Who Put Me In Charge said...

Girlfriend, you are SUPER artsy-fartsy. I totally need you to come decorate my house! My walls are all white. I am so blah. I have no imagination whatsoever.

And, I am also LCMS but I was raised catholic! Texan Papa is a LCMS pastor.

I bite my nails too, but I've had acrylic for about 10 years, on and off. Right now it's off. When I feel our finances are a little more solid, I will probably go back. But, weirdly, I only chew one fingernail on each hand. I let the other 8 grow. Weird, right?

Loved getting to know you better! And, thanks for the link!

Tracey said...

I love your list! It's always fun to learn things about everyone that I read on a daily basis!
Love the turkey. It almost makes me want to eat turkey dinner again.

Chantelle said...

I love the dark accent wall! And you are so creative with the Eiffel tower painting.
It's funny to read the 100 things list, it's like a stream of consciousness. And, 3 months before getting engaged? Damn.
Also, #66 & 67. Yes, I totally agree (for myself - I've never seen your boobs).
