      Congrats on your 100th! Neat list, I feel like I know you a little better now. Especially how to pronounce your first name! :-) I kind of always wondered.

      Good luck on your “losing” effort and your next 100.


    2. by Katie

      I hopped on over here from Momminitup! And if you love Jillian, check out the 30 day shred workout DVD! You can do it at your home, making it way easier to workout. Its challenging but doable! Plus you get that crazy “I”m super sweaty but I just burned major calories” feeling when you are done!


    3. by Karen

      Congrats on hitting 100.

      Ironically, I have a Craig Biggio autographed baseball that I got from him at an awards dinner a while back. Otherwise, I would have had no idea who you were talking about…


    4. by Headless Mom

      I’m embarrassed at how long it’s been since I’ve been here. I adore your new look!

      Great 100 things…they’re fun to read- I could comment on probably 25 of them… I won’t.

      Love you, Girl!

      Congrats on your 100th post. Very cool list!


    6. by Sherrie

      Congrats on your 100th post. That’s an awesome feat! And — sounds like a girl’s cruise is just what I need, too. LOL! I’ve never been on one either. And — I’ll join you in the idea of going to Australia one of these days. It’s been a dream since I was 16. LOL!

      So I totally just stalked your blog and stumbled upon this, I’m so with you on the hating the housework, sucks when you’re single because you have nobody else to blame it on!


    8. by Karen

      I forget which trail of breadcrumbs lead me to your blog but here I am. I feel compelled to stalk…follow…admire you because not only do we have a lot in common but I am Australian and thoroughly approve of you wanting to visit. Aside from that, I’m 32, single, overweight, a dork, have a younger brother who is a Scorpio, like chocolate too much, live with my cousins and their two children whom I adore, hate housework, have two parents who have been happily married for a bajillion years, teach for a living, am constantly told I should be a mother as if I somehow am choosing not to be AND the four-year-old version of my cousinly surrogates is called Grace.


      I think so.

      (Not so sure on the sport thing and I can’t bake to save myself but I’m an expert eater and not being passionate about sport just means I’m happy to agree with you about your team, so it all works out.)
