Two Hundred One and Seven

Blog legend says that you're supposed to list 100 hundred things about yourself on your 100th post. Well, I missed that and was planning on entertaining you on my 200th post... but I missed that too. So, for my 201st post, here are 10 things about me:

1. I'm an only child. Apparently, that can be quite obvious sometimes.


2. I dislike cucumbers, running, airplanes and repetitive noises.

3. I love dark chocolate, BNL, reading novels at breakneck speed and going out to eat.

4. My most embarrasing moment includes cheerleading, having a need to pee and a crowd of onlookers that wondered what in the world just happened.

5. Adoption is always been on my heart (and Josh's as well) and it's tugging at us quite heavily right now. However, it's at odds with the other part of me that has all of the questions... can we handle three? the third being from another place - which then begs all sorts of other questions... how will it change us? our marriage? our dynamic? how can we NOT do this? ah...

6. I adore public speaking (see #1).

7. Ear cleaning and toenail clipping are fascinating to me - I always loved when my mom cleaned my ears, and now Kate loves it too. I will clip anyone's nails, ask Madison.

8. One of my biggest pet peeves is bad grammar usage. Right, Kristi?

9. I love Jesus.

10. It's our 7th anniversary today (that's where the 7 in the title comes from) and as a sweet coincidence, it's Amelia's 5th birthday as well. Even stranger, Scotty's birthday falls on the date of our engagement. As you can imagine, I have high hopes for their third child's birthday.

For all of you who are about to comment in bad grammar... I'm on to you.

Oh ... HJ looks so young in that wedding picture. You still look young and fabulous! Bad grammar? As a former English teacher ... a just have a love for multiple periods in a row - and I can't remember what that is called right now? And elipse? Eclipse? What??? I'm sure it's not correct but it's how I think in my head!!!

Ugh ... thanks for asking. No, J How has not stopped singing Jingle Bells. "I sing Jingle Bells? Mom, sing bells?" When can he come over??? I heard you like repetitive sounds!

Happy Anniversary! If I'd known then that we were going to be such great friends, I'd have postponed our vacation and stayed for your wedding. I still have guilt...
