100th post! (and a new look!)

Well, it took me long enough to get to 100!  Faith and I started blogging the same weekend and she hit 100 back in October!  Anyway, I think it's tradition to write 100 things about yourself or something, but seriously?  I'm pretty sure I couldn't think of 100 things and who wants to read them all?  So maybe I'll just start writing and we'll see.

(Oh and I'm not sure how I feel about the new look.  It's kind of boring, isn't it?  And after you read this post you'll think it just fits!)

1.  I am the oldest of three children.

2.  I have 2 younger brothers.

3. I met my husband when I was 13.

4.  We dated 3 different times over the next 13 yrs before we got married.

5.  I went to public school.

6.  I homeschool my children. (but not because I went to public school! haha)

7.  My dad is the mayor of my hometown.

8.  That always makes me smile.

9.  I have always liked NC State athletics, even before I married a State grad.

10.  I went to Western Carolina University, as did my dad.

11.  I majored in nursing. 

12.  My mom is a nurse too and was surprised when I declared my major.

13.  I worked in L&D, mostly 3rd shift before I got married.

14.  I worked in a family practice clinic for a year after we moved to Charlotte.

15.  My husband told me 2 weeks before the wedding that he had been offered a job in Charlotte. 

16.  We lived in Raleigh for the first 3 months of our married life and then moved to Charlotte.

17.  We had never even lived in the same town until the week after our honeymoon.

18.  We went to Jamaica on our honeymoon.

19.  We went to NYC on our first anniversary.

20.  I was 12 wks pregnant.

21.  We went to NYC last month to celebrate our 10th anniversary in May.

22.  I was NOT pregnant.

23.  I have been in 2 very serious wrecks in my life.

24.  The worst injury I received was a head laceration that needed stitches.

25.  I asked Jesus to be my Lord and Savior when I was 10 yrs old.

26.  I am still friends with girls I was friends with in the nursery at church.

27.  I had chicken pox during Christmas when I was about 4.

28.  I am not very athletic but I have broken 2 fingers and had knee surgery.

29.  I LOVE to read.

30. I've been known to read 6 books during a week long beach vacation.

31.  I play the piano.

32.  I would love to be able to sing well. 

33.  I love math and thought I wanted to be a math teacher.

34.  Until I took Calculus 2 in college. 

35. Calc 2 is the only class I ever dropped.

36.  I used to love to climb trees.

37.  I am never going to get to 100.

38.  I think I'll stop at 40.

39.  I'm pretty sure I'm the most boring person ever.

40.  And..... finished!

Now I'd like to apologize to those who spent valuable time reading this post.  You rock!

LOOOOOVVVEEE the new look! It's so "you"! I must strongly disagree with your #39 though, no way are you the most boring person ever! I can't remember if I knew #33 or not, but I could totally see you doing that, Miss Valedictorian - hey, you didn't mention that!

Great list and congrats on 100 posts! Yay! Who would've thought that we'd be here this time last year??? Not me!

Love you my friend!

Ashleigh said...

Happy 100! You are WAY older than me!! It sure is nice to be able to honestly say that to you!! ;o)
I was hoping you would post something I didn't know! Oh well...that is what nursery friends are for, right? No explaining of anything---ever.
I LOVE your new look too!! You will have to share your updating secrets with me.
Love you!!

I loved reading this. We have SO much in common. I married an NC State grad, both of my brothers went to WCU (youngest one graduating this spring), my husband and I met and lived in Raleigh our first year of marriage, we went to Jamaica on our honeymoon and NYC on our 10th anniversary. Isn't that wild?

Happy 100th! Here's to many more :)

Jenn...Lisa and I are sitting in the hospital waiting for her to start pushing in about an hour...I got to about 30 on your list and knew you were stretching real hard to try to get to 100. Good effort though...

You are so funny! I did not know that you majored in nursing. I don't know how I missed that.

Congratulations on your 100th post and I love the new look!
