150 = 150

I remember the excitement I got when I had 10 followers. I thought I was way cool, even though I didn't really understand was happening. Today, I reached my 150th follower!

Holy Moly!

I want to thank each and every blog friend out there. I've had so much fun in the six months I've been blogging. I've learned so much. I've been inspired by many of you all, and I've had a blast. You've made me laugh, made me cry, and taught me many of things. From recipes, to making jewelry, to Kick Ass true life stories. I love them all. I may not comment on everyones posts, but know that I am reading them if I follow you.

Is it just me or reading & following makes you loose your time and then you realize you've gotten NOTHING done?

So, today, I'm giving back. Here is a list below of 150 facts about me.

Great list! Hey I'm 5'2", love pink and have never done drugs. Actually a lot of things you had listed I was nodding over...pretty good considering I am 15 years older...

Anyway, don't trade your hourglass figure. Not many of us have them.

And LOVE the red hair.

Let's see: both lefty's, dusting is the one chore I always overlook, CHEETAH print is my clothing addiction, I swear I have undiagnosed A.D.D., Cliff & I are remodeling our home, I find something to cry about in every movie, pink is a favorite color, Bud Light is my beer of choice, 3 Muskateers are delicious, traveling to all the different countries is on my bucket list, my jewelry box consists on 95% "dangley" earrings, gerber daisies are my FAV, I never brush my hair...come to think of it, I don't even own a brush, our home does not have anything black, it's all brown, gardening is a new hobby for me as well, I DID NOT grow boobs in the 6th grade however! [haha!], I make my own birthday cards, I read magazines from back to front every. single. time!!! ....need I continue? hahahaa! How stinkin' crazy! I think Michelle Hoad said it all "you're left handed, that explains it all!".

Such a cute post! Congrats on the 150 followers! Whoop-whoop :)

Ohh, and sorry for the longest comment EVER!
