102 things (because I forgot to stop.)

1. I love antiques. Treasures from the past.

2. my dream pets are- a weimaraner, bull dog, (they are so cute.... I would get a friendly bull dog) toy, chocolate brown, curly haired, schnauzer, doxen and Saint Bernard's are pretty but they seem to drool a lot.

3. I hate pizza. With the exception of home made and Mellow mushroom. I prolly hate it so much because I got really sick after eating it.... Now I keep away...Especially from Papa Johns.

4. Uggs, hollister, and abrocrombie are not my thing. (Not meant to 'step on any ones toes.'

5. Hydrangeas, orchids, peonies, and yellow/pink/white roses are my favorite flowers.

6. I wish I had been born in another decade. The 1920's- 1960's had such adorable fashions.

7. My hair is in a very short bob. Like from the 1920's.

8. I just LOVE the movie 'Vertigo' by Alfred Hitchcock. It is really haunting though and I do not think I will ever forget it.

9. I love old aprons. I have found several at yard sales, and I love making them with my grandma. There is just something so neat about them. I always wonder the story behind each of them. Years ago, people re-used fabrics/ they made dresses out of flour sacks and things like that. (Do you get what I mean?!?)

10. I adore square plates. They are so neat.

11. Fresh flowers make any room pretty.

12. I want to play hide-and-seek in a corn field.

15. Weeping willows are so mysterious and pretty.

16. Lilly Pulitzer has Wonderful fabrics, and dresses.

17. I went to the top of the world trade center several months before they crashed.

18. I love my family.

19. I have always wanted to go on a safari. (wearing a cute safari dress.)

65. Iced coffee is the best.

66. I cry in movies

70. I have gone repelling

71. I wish milk men came to your door to drop off glass milk jugs with the cream on top. Why did they ever stop?!??!

72. I like bleach blond hair, light brown hair, and red hair *a certain colour I can't really describe* (all hair colours are pretty though)

82. I have tried squid and snails. Squid tastes like chicken, and well snails taste like....I know... SNAILS!

87. I hate it when people wear sun glasses when it is not sunny, or rain boots when it is not rainy.

88. I hate it when people stare at me and do not turn away when they know I have noticed. Should I stare back and give them the 'evil eye,' smile and turn around, or pretend like I didn't notice?

89. Night cleaning is the best. Put on some jazz music, tie your hair in a hanker chief, put on high heels, a skirt and a vintage apron. Then dance around with a duster... Its really fun. Although I have never done it with a skirt, heels, or a hanker chief in my hair.. Ill have to try that some time!~ wink wink!

93. Our TV is about as big as a microwave, (it is as big as the little glass part on a microwave that you look in.) but VERY wide. I think it has issues. The Chanel's change by it self, and the volume will go up and down. Then it will turn on and off. CREEPY! (especially if you are home alone!) As you can tell, we do not watch much TV. Actually none for that matter. We do watch videos and DVDs though. We are going to have to get a new TV since everything is going digital.. What ever that means...

94. Chunky rings are the best

95. I love dressing up and try to find excuses so that I can.

97. Why didn't anyone ever tell me I looked like a dork when I was little?

98. I love my church.

99. I have never loved horses. They are fun to ride though. When I was growing up every girls favorite animal was a horse and their favorite colours were blue and purple. Now all girls love Hannah Montana and pink shimmer-y things..Wow drastic change.
