It's all about meme

This isn't a typical meme because there are no actual questions with which to tag someone. But during this time of self reflection, I thought it might be fun to make a list of things specific to ME! Maybe it will become my 100 things.

So, read away, if you like. Then go and make a list for yourself. I would love to read all about YOU! Consider yourself tagged.

Vancouver is the best big city I've seen.

I don’t like blogs with black backgrounds.

If it has shea butter in the ingredients, I will buy it.

I love lip balm

Since I’ve stopped eating sugar, I have stopped biting my nails. Is there a correlation?

I won’t take my vitamins unless my husband brings them to me along with a bottle of water.

I wish I would have thought up Bath and Body Works.

Why do people like Charlotte’s Web? What am I missing?

If I don’t make a to-do list every morning, then nothing gets done.

My tea must be strong, with sweetener and milk.

I worry that I may have to give up my sweetener. It’s all chemicals, you know.

Vegetables are my friends.

I would dye my hair blue, or maybe pink, if my children wouldn’t die of embarrassment.

When I am old, I will have long hair and I will not wear track suits.

My glasses do not suit me.

I usually smell pepperminty or lemony, depending on what kind of mood I’m in. Flowers don’t smell good on me.

I use hand lotion everyday.

I am not a very good house keeper, but I am an excellent wife.

My kids tell me I am the best mom ever, and some days I believe them!

I am a person who will eventually peek in your bathroom cabinet, but I will always tell you when I do it. I’m an honest snoop.

If someone comes in and opens my fridge to see what I’ve got, I am happy. It means you are comfortable and count me as a friend. Refrigerator rights rule!

I would read a book everyday if I could.

I could clean up on Wheel of Fortune.

I have to have a clean kitchen to cook, a clean house to do crafts, but not a clean desk to blog.

I am fluent in American Sign Language.

In Iowa, everyone waves to one another, even if you are strangers.

When I see my kids in a group of people, I always think they are the best looking. Prideful, I know.

One day I hope to live at the beach.

When I worked at The Spaghetti Factory, I was server of the year and won $100.

I would like to be the person who always picks up the check, but for now, I just put in extra money for the tip.

One day I am going to round up all my friends for a day at the spa.

I have a blue iPod.

I love my church.

The last book I read was The Book Thief. I liked it.

Now you!

Charlotte's web the movie or the book? Haven't seen the latest movie, but the book is just a testimony of friendship. But if you don't like talking animals...

I love this!! I took sign language classes for awhile and wanted to become an interpreter but the teachers I had BIT and so I quit. I shouldn't have let that stop me, huh?
Somehow I didn't realize you were in Iowa. (I went to Augustana). I miss my Iowa friends!

i like this, i started a 100 things about me a while back and couldn't think of 100 things to share!

charlotte's web the old cartoon movie is fun to me cos my kids like it. personally i think it's on the edge of scary, the whole idea of the pig saving himself.

i also must have a clean kitchen to cook. i thought i was the only one :)

(Guess you're some kind of character...)
