100 things about Me!

Saturday, August 9, 2008

So I was just told that it is a "blogging tradition" - come on now - is there such a thing as BLOGGING TRADITION?? that when you reach your 100th post you post 100 things about yourself -
So...I go in and check and low and behold...I was just a few posts shy of 100 - EEK.
Aren't you glad I didn't miss it??? That's what I thought...
100 things about me?? The four people who read this blog probably already know everything there is to know about me, and when I started this blog - I thought the hubby and I would be BOTH blogging on it so this really should have been 100 things about US...but since he doesn't blog and I do...I guess this one is all about me.
