101 things about ME(and my family)

In honor of my 100th post on Monday I wanted to do something special. Since this is technically my 101st post I have decided to say 101 things about me or my family. So here goes...I am not sure how long this will take me to write but I'll give it a try.

1. I am sick right now-not bad sick but just a head cold and watery eyes, runny nose, and a headache. Yet, I am still sitting here on this computer when I should just go lay down.
2. I am an only child-for the most part. I have two half sisters but they are older than me and we never lived in the same house.
3. I love taking pictures, but you probably already guessed that.
4. I played volleyball, softball, and a little basketball in high school. Softball was my favorite sport...I miss it sometimes.
5. In college I was on a country and western dance team, it was tons of fun. We travelled all around doing performances.
6. I met my husband in college. He was graduating and I was starting my sophomore year. We dated long distance for 3 years and made it work somehow.
7. Since being married I have lived in 4 different states in 7 years.
8. I have plans for at least one more child sometime in the future. We aren't going to find out the sex...whatever it is, we will love it.
9. I don't know if I will want to stop at 4 kids or have more. I just love having babies.
10. All three of my girls were born in the noon hour. McKenna 12:48pm, Kambry 12:28pm and Aislynn 12:47pm
11. Wow, it's going to take me a long time to get to 101, but I will try.
12. I have two cats and one dog. We used to have a fish, but he didn't last too long.
13. I actually enjoy watching football with my husband. It was so much more fun when I actually knew what was going on.
14. I am really loving staying at home with the girls right now. I love my job as a nurse but it doesn't replace how nice it is to see my girls grow and be able to spend as much time with them as I want.
15. Aislynn got her second tooth today...YEAH!!
16. I got married wearing my cowboy boots. You couldn't even see them under the wedding dress, so no one really knew unless I showed them.
17. I miss Texas. I was born and raised in Austin and would love to go back someday.
18. I have become kind of addicted to blogging. It's fun to meet new people and relate to their stories or lives.
19. I am praying for little Stellan and hope that he heals soon.
20. It is fun making headbands for the girls. I probably spend more time on it than I should but they are just so darn cute.
21. My favorite color is blue. But at the same time, I am not that picky and like most colors..just not burnt orange, it is UT's school color.
22. Did I mention that I went to Texas A&M? It was the best 4 years I could have asked for.
23. My lips are chapped and burning right now.
24. I am so glad that I have three girls. I honestly don't know what I would do with boys.
25. My husband is a die hard Dallas Cowboys fan. Since it is basketball season right now, he is a die hard San Antonio Spurs fan.
26. He misses Texas too, can you tell?
27. My cat peed on my bed yesterday. So now my comforter is at the cleaners for a week. He is in big big trouble.
28. I really wanted a pizza for dinner, but went with the frozen dinner instead. It was ok, just ok.
29. Kambry decided to pee on my floor this morning, I guess she was just too busy playing to take a break and go to the potty.
30. I love Target. A store just opened up near my house and I go there probably 2-3times a week. Can you blame me?
31. We are taking a family trip to Disneyworld next month. We are so excited. I haven't been there since I was 10 years old.
32. My mom is coming to visit soon. We are excited to have her here.
33. That's how old my husband is...33.
34. I don't like to do laundry. The washing isn't so bad, it's the folding I would rather do without.
35. I am over a third of the way done...just barely, but getting there.
36. I love taking walks in the evening to enjoy the nice weather. Today was a little chilly compared to the past few days but still nice.
37. I miss having a quiet house every now and then.
38. I am glad my house is filled with noise...children playing, babies babbling, husbands yelling at the TV(remember he is watching the Spurs play)
39. Just kidding, he not really yelling at the TV, just giving suggestions to the refs.
40. I am starting to get tired already.
41. I love Blue Bell ice cream. I should not be so addicted but I am.
42. I also love Dr Pepper. Those are my weaknesses.
43. I really miss all my friends and family in other states. I wish I could be closer to them all.
44. Life as a military wife has its ups and its downs. It's my life and I wouldn't change a thing.
45. My husband and I are very supportive of each others dreams. Well, I guess I am not all that supporting of his dream of owning a motorcycle...but one day I am sure he will get it.
46. Are we half way yet?
47. I love to take showers. I usually take at least two a day. I don't know what it is, I guess just the feeling of being really clean.
48. I am known for falling asleep on the couch when watching a movie. I am like the girls, just get me to stay still for a while and I am out like a light.
49. I enjoy watching Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice and Dexter. I also watch American Idol, Amazing Race, and Hell's Kitchen. Where do I find time? A DVR and fast forward. I usually watch 10 minutes at a time while breastfeeding.
50. That's a good number, it means I am half way.
51. I was an A student in high school, a B student in college.
52. I don't like being cold. I guess it's good that I live in Florida huh?
53. I love the Florida beaches. They are so pretty with the white sands that sparkle with gold.
54. My favorite number is 9. I am not sure why, it's just my number.
55. On the other hand my lucky number is 21. I was born on the 21st, my husband was born on the 21st, we met on the 21st, got married on the 21st and almost had Aislynn on the 21st, she was born on the 22nd.
56. Raising three girls is difficult at times but the best thing in the world. They are my joy and I am so grateful to have three healthy girls.
57. I am not much of a night owl. I am usually in bed by 11pm, sometimes 10pm. I would much rather get up in the morning but lately sleeping in is the way to go.
58. I have lost almost all of my baby weight. I am still working on it though.
59. I feel like I have been working on this for an hour already.
60. My headache is worse now, maybe I should take a motrin.
61. I am a clean freak even though I don't actually like cleaning.
62. I can be a little obsessive over certain things. My husband probably even deems me crazy at times.
63. I don't like cigarette smoke at all. I have actually never even tried a cigarette.
64. I am very emotional all the time, it's just worse when I am pregnant.
65. I have decided to go to bed for now...be back in the morning.
66. It is Wednesday now, and I am feeling much better.
67. I collected baseball cards as a kid.
68. I still have a box full of them somewhere in storage.
69. I was kind of a tomboy growing up.
70. I like country music. I was happy that Carrie Underwood won Entertainer of the Year as the ACMs on Sunday.
71. I can't wait to get outside today and enjoy the beautiful weather.
72. I drive an SUV because I just couldn't see myself in a minivan...we looked at them though.
73. I have 5 friends that are pregnant right now. I am so excited for them all.
74. My girls are growing up way too fast. McKenna is soaking up information like a sponge.
75. My favorite food is Mexican...well, I guess actually Tex-Mex.
76. Did I mention already that I miss Texas?
77. I also miss Texas BBQ. I can't wait to get some when I go back to visit.
78. I cut my hair last month for the first time since last May. I guess things like that get put on the back burner when you are busy with kids.
79. I like soaking in a hot tub...I just don't have much time to do that either.
80. I really want to get a new camera...I know I already said that in a previous post, but it's still on my mind.
81. McKenna decided that now she wants to play soccer instead of t-ball. I told her maybe next season but she needed to finish t-ball first.
82. I can't believe that Easter is this weekend already. Wow, the time has flown by.
83. I talk to my mom on the phone probably about 4-5 times a week. It's nice to be close yet so far away.
84. I loved NKOTB(New Kids On The Block) growing up. My favorite was Joe. I had posters, videos, tapes, and who knows what else that was NKOTB.
85. I had cereal for breakfast...I like Cinnamon Life.
86. I don't like coffee. I don't like drinks that are hot for that matter. The only kind of hot chocolate I like is from a coffee shop...the good kind.
87. I like ice in my milk. I like it really really cold.
88. I enjoy reading my friends blogs and keep up with their life too.
89. I am getting close to number 101...yeah.
90. I need to clean my bathrooms today...did I already mention that I don't like cleaning, I just like the results.
91. McKenna and Kambry are pretending to be ballerinas in the living room right now.
92. My husband was happy that the Spurs won the basketball game last night.
93. We actually have a Build-A-Bear that is a frog and he has on a Spurs jersey.
94. We can be sports fanatics at times.
95. I don't have a bathing suit that fits right now. I guess I should get one soon if I want to go to the beach and get a tan.
96. Aislynn loves sitting and playing with the baby piano. She is getting really good.
97. I got my car cleaned on Monday...a very thorough cleaning. It is probably the cleanest it has been since I bought it a year and a half ago.
98. I am running out of things to say...can you tell?
99. I love flip flops.
100. Aislynn is telling me she wants some cereal right now.
101. I am officially done and it took me around 2 1/2 hours to write this post.

I couldn't end without a picture so here is one of Kambry from a couple of days ago. I think it turned out so pretty.

One more thing...HAPPY BIRTHDAY KENDRA!! Hope you have a great day.

I love #49! That is when I get caught up too. Although Isaac tends to stay on longer than 10 minutes you lucky girl :-)

Sugar Mommy said...

I love this post!! I may just have to begin one! Although I know it will take me a couple days...
I would love to place an order for beanies! I would like to order brown beanies with light pink gerbers. Also white beanies with white gerbers. 4 of each color. How do they run size wise?

Nana said...

Whew! That almost wore me out but since I am your biggest fan, I stayed til the end! I loved your list, and I love the picture of Kambry.

Sugar Mommy said...

Pink with the pink and white wth the white. Everything sounds great! I am so excited to get them! Can I order an extra one in brown and pink (for me). Good for pictures of all of us girls together!

#47 I am the same way. I think working at the hospital all day makes you a little germophobic.

#49 DVR is the greatest invention of all time!

#55 me too. Some of the best things in my life has been involving the number 21 somehow.

#84 NKOTB was the first concert I ever went to. I went again this past November for their reunion tour or whatever.. it was GREAT :)

Great post!! :)

I love Dexter too. Almost too much. Makes me fell like maybe I am a maniac. Scary.
