Tiffanie said...

Nice post. I could relate to alot, especially about missing cooking and used to shop alot, now having to budget.

Eduardo said...

Very appropriate. 100 things, 100th post.

You can't possibly have had the best parents... they were with me at the time.

We want to hear more about the 16th birthday.

Are you sure that you don't still have it all?

I don't know what a Wiggle or a Longaberger is.

Is somewhat of a vegetarian like being almost pregnant?

The 100th thing was a bit of cheat, but I won't point that out.

You are a fascinating person.

I like that comment...
I am ME!

Eduardo said...

I am me is both simplistic and profound, but I think it should have been the title, and we should have been given another real piece of information.

I'm just saying...

butterflygirl said...
