Fascinating, wasn't it? :)


  1. Actually, yes - I think it was fascinating. :) I love to learn new things about people, that's how you get to know them, even if it's just fun silly stuff. I can't believe you wear a size 6 shoe and aren't 10 years old, lol. What cute little feet you must have, or are mine just big? LOL

  2. Fascinating and enjoyable... Some of these I knew, some I didn't. I was wondering why I fit the shoes I got from you garage sale so well. (It's all about the shoes). I don't know if you knew this but, I WAS bossy in school, too. Somehow, I think it makes us better mommys! Anyhow, I miss you and hope you get back safely!

  3. I loved this. I think we should all do it. This was a great way and fun way to get to know little things about our new friends. You are a very unique and special person, job well done!

  4. I found it fascinating and helpful; Now I have a clue what I might write for my 100 things...which after nearly two years of blogging I have never even attempted!

  5. This is the first time I have visited your blog. I found a link on Ashley's "Livin Our Love Song" blog.

    This list was fascinating and I couldn't believe how much I have in common with you.

  6. Love where you say you met your husband! You could write a book about that!

  7. We are so much alike I can't even stand it. Have you noticed this?
    I bet over half of those I was saying yup, uh huh, oh yeah, me too!
    Except the living in Montana thing and having 2 sisters and only 1 son. But other than that most everything! LOL.
    I tell you I am on top of things tonight. This is my 3rd comment today. I should get a prize of some sort! Hee! Hee!
    Big Red Hugs to the Tune of 80's music to you my friend.

  8. I'm a little upset. It didn't post my very long heartfelt comment I just made about this post! Maybe you can just read my mind, cause I'm going to bed! LOL. I'll call you with the rest of it another day!
    BIG Frustrating hugs!

  9. I just realized you have to approve it first! I didn't read that before. LOL. So okay! Yup! Going to BED! TIRED! Yeah! Uh HUH!

  10. Oh my goodness! I know you!! You're me!! Ok, not really, but I'm amazed at how many things I was nodding at thinking "totally!"
    I stumbled upon you at Like a Warm Cup of Coffee, and you are now going on my blog roll. And since it is way too late, and I too have a terrible time getting up in the morning, I'm off to do a 100 things about me list for my page! Ha! Thanks for the inspiration.

  11. So... I found your blog from a "Works for Me" link and I LOVE it! THings we have in common: small feet, chocolate adoration, broken elbow in childhood (did yours puncture the skin? Mine did and I still cringe when I think about it!) And many more. I'm so doing this 100 things thing on my blog. and I'm going to follow you for more chocolate inspiration!

  12. My favorite is went to the right department! ;)

  13. hmmm i love chocolate, too.
    nice blog..

  14. I just started a blog to update my family and friends about our life in a quaint northern town in Minnesota. I am very new to bloggin, but so far, during my daughters nap time and bed time, I am digging around getting ideas to make my blog interesting. Naturally, when I saw 'stop and smell the chocolate'...I was drawn! Chocolate is my down fall for sure, and mostly to blame for the baby weight I lug around!! Your page is beautiful, and I hope to figure out how to post 100 things about myself on my blog!!


I would love to hear your comments! Thank you for stopping and smelling the chocolates with me!! Currently disabled anonymous comments due to spam attempts - thanks for understanding!
