100 Things

Stumble Upon Toolbar


Since this is the 100th post, we decided to do 100 things about us.

Me (MaddieLynn)

10 places I've been:

*Six Flags Over Texas
*Pinehurst, North Carolina
*Atlanta, Georgia
*Disney World, Florida
*Point Clear, Alabama
*Antlers, Oklahoma
*Ft. Phantom, Texas
*Vicksburg, Mississippi
*Galveston, Texas
*San Diego, California

10 things I enjoy:

*Collecting model horses

10 things I want to do:
*Get a horse

*Breed rabbits
*Move to the country
*Throw away my logic book
*Build a large snail habitat
*Breed my dog
*Take horse-back riding lessons
*Take a cake-decorating class

10 favorite books (or book sets):

Uuuummmmm....... I think I'll let Mymomconnie write 60 things instead of 50. I could write "Get a horse" 10 more times, but that would be kind of boring.

10 favorites:
*color - pink
*snack - pickles
*drink - vanilla Dr. Pepper
*food - Tex Mex
*season - spring
*weather - warm
*book of the Bible - Psalms
*books - nonfiction
*song - church songs
*place - home

10 things I know:
*Given the opportunity, a 2 yr. old will lose at least 1 shoe per day.
*Taking wipes out of the box is lots of fun for a 1 year old.
*When marking his territory, a male dog will consider a new purse part of that territory.
*Throwing away a new purse is painful.
*If 2 socks are the same color, they are a pair.
*When dirty socks are found on the floor, they will not belong to anyone living in the house.
*Socks should not be worn in summer.
*God is magnificent.
*I am imperfect.
*Jesus saves.

Zeren, I put vegetable oil in some of the coloring cups and it kept the dye from sticking to parts of the eggs. Did you click on the link? It gives detailed directions. Hope you have a great week, too!

Linz, Thanks!

Nikki said...

No Holly, feet are gross. Not as gross as snails mind you, but gross. I never met a cute foot.

I'm so with you on the feet thing. And the Johnny Cash thing. I was just today watching videos of him performing (on YouTube-they have one somebody filmed of one of his very last performnances before he died. It was heart-wrenching!).

Connie, I really enjoyed reading this post! It's fun to know a bit more about you and your daughter. :) I'm still catching up on reading blogs but the answer to your question about why my blog is "older than the cheese" is here:

You'll probably have to cut and paste. Sorry!

ROTFL!! Love the 20 random observations! Congrats on the 100 posts. Keep up the great work.

And yes, all feet are ugly. Unless they are baby feet and brand new without that "feet" smell.
