My 100

Ok, I'll take the challenge here are 100 things about me.



1 I live in South Carolina (at the moment)

2 I was born in Texas

3 I lived there longer than any other state

4 I've lived in 13 different states

5 And 22 different cities

6 I lived in Mexico for 2 months

7 I would love to go back for a month or two

8 I want to take my kids to Mexico

9 I want to teach my kids Spanish

10 I am planning on homeschooling my kids this year

11 I want to plant a garden.

12 I have a sandbox for a back yard

13 I like mountain biking

14 I haven't gone trail riding in years

15 I love running

16 Especially trail running

17 I train for and run a 5k road race between each pregnancy

18 This time I'm trying a 10k

19 We are planning on having more kids

20 We want to get our kids into running (and mountain biking)

21 They love going to races and running when they have kids events

22 We like taking our kids camping and hiking

23 You get odd looks when you take little kids on trails more than a mile long.

24 I have a love/hate relationsip with clearance sales

25 I love the bargains but inevitably buy things I don't need

26 Acquistion therapy to make one feel better only works for a short time then guilt takes over for spending money instead of facing what was bothering you (unless you acquired really cute shoes! Then you need not feel guilt.)

27 I won't go into how I know that

28 My hair is short again. Cami cut it last night.

29 I enjoy Disney channel, just not as much as my kids do.

30 I like waterfalls

31 I want to design a waterfall to go with the inground pool for my dream house

32 I want to build it somewhere warm.

33 In fact tropical would be nice.

34 I love the South

35 I like crafts and making things

36 I don't like cluttering my home with crafts once they are made.

37 I am in process of de-cluttering my home.

38 It is a never-ending process.

39 Sometimes I want to get rid of everything and just start over

40 Then I decide I really don't want that

41 I just want to be better organized with the things I have

42 I don't care much about sports

43 I've never watched an entire sporting event on television

44 I take that back, I've watched horse racing

45 But a race lasts less then 5 minutes

46 That's about the longest I've spent watching any other sporting event too

47 I love reading

48 I'm addicted to chocolate

49 I have chocolate in some form every day

50 I realize I have a problem and have been cutting back

51 I won't say I'm going to quit chocolate all together, but 2 large mugs of hot cocoa, cookies (choc. chip or Oreos), and several pieces of straight chocolate candy (kisses, m&ms, choc. bars, ect) a day was excessive.

52 I'm down to one form of chocolate a day and cutting back on that.

53 I haven't had Hot Cocoa for over a week.

54 And I couldn't figure out why I didn't lose weight as fast after this baby, DUH.

55 I've lost 5 lbs over the last couple weeks

56 I like snuggling babies when I take a nap on the couch

57 I like snuggling babies period.

58 Did I really need to write the word "period" if I was ending the sentence with a period?

59 I need to use better grammer.

60 My husband corrects our children's grammer more than I do.

61 His mother is a language arts teacher.

62 I love theater

63 I've been in at least 13 plays or musicals.

64 Unfortunately I don't remember much of some of them.

65 Guess it didn't make as much of an impression as I thought.

66 I was Cali's understudy in Joseph ATATD.

67 It was the only time I think an understudy didn't want the lead to miss a performance.

68 My kids like watching the movie with Donny Osmond

69 I like it too

70 I like wearing sandals

71 I didn't wear them for years because I was overly concious of my feet.

72 My right foot got cut by a lawnmower when I was 10

73 I realized after about 10 years people really don't notice the scars or my toe.

74 The scar is mostly on the bottom of my foot and my toe just looks fat.

75 I want palm trees in my yard

76 I'd like to take a cruise

77 I want to take my kids to Hawaii

78 I love fireplaces in
79 My favorite color is yellow
80 It makes me think of sunshine and flowers
81 1 cup of Kashi and 1.5 cups of milk will keep me full for over 3 hours
82 Most of the time I eat something about every hour or so that I'm awake
83 Most of the time those are small snacks like a few crackers or pieces of fruit (or chocolate)
84 I'm blessed with a metabolism that can run on pure sugar.
85 I inherited my sweet tooth from my Grandma Peggy
86 At eighty-someting she still eats dessert after most meals.
87 That doesn't include her daily doses of dark chocolate.
88 I know who I take after
89 I try to do my unhealthy snacking when the kids aren't around
90 I want my kids to eat healthier than I did
91 I know I have to teach by example
92 I do cook healthy meals (most of the time)
93 I've learned to cook
94 I can make choclate chip cookies without a recipe
95 And my mom's chicken enchiladas
96 I love the way babies smell after a bath
97 I love my husband and the fact that he loves me!
98 My family is my life.
99 I like anything we can do together
100 I look forward to forever with them!

Very entertaining and educational :) I check your blog like every day, so I was so excited to see you updated! I'm curious to know what lead to your decision to homeschool? I've toyed with the idea myself.

Cathy Shields said...

What movie with Donnie Osmond??? Donnie Osmond made a movie????

Cathy Shields said...

I totally understand about the shoes!!!

Darryl and Cindy said...

I love reading these lists! And yes, you do need to cut back on the chocolate!!

Darryl and Cindy said...

Cathy,
They made a movie of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat!Donny is Joseph. (Did you have a crush on him when you were a girl?)

leschornmom said...

With almot everything you listed, I was shking my head, and saying "Me too!"
Especially all the stuff about the sweets and wanting your kids to eat better than you!

leschornmom said...

Cindy,
I asked you this at the bottom of another post, but I'm afraid you'll miss it... Where's your 100s list?

Cathy Shields said...

Cindy
Oh THAT MOVIE!!! I never seen it and I forgot about it. Yes, of course I had a crush on Donnie as a girl. I had pics of him on my wall. Along with David Cassidy and Elvis. HEHEHEHE
How about you?

Cali & Travis said...

It still kills me that you could get like 10 things simply from chocolate. I think I only got 4 or 5 from basketball. You make me laugh!

Darryl and Cindy said...

David Cassidy, Rowdy Yates, Jay Osmond (Just older than Donny) and Little Joe from Bonanza!

Cathy Shields said...

Ok I had to look Rowdy Yates up and I assume you mean the guy Clint Eastwood played instead of the younger country singer or the radio announcer (looks like a couple other women REALLY liked him also--at least you didn't name Cody-Rowdy).
I seen Donny on the Rachel Ray show and he still looks pretty good. He also said that he may compete on the Dancing with the Stars next year. I don't watch that but may if he's there. While in Ohio in Jr High, I went to a David Cassidy concert. I took my camera and when I developed the film he appeared as this little blur of light against an all dark background. Where were those zoom lens and digital cameras when I needed to reach out and touch someone??

Darryl and Cindy said...

Yes I meant Clint Eastwood in the late 50's early 60's.

When I was in college I did get to spend a little time (30 Minutes) with Jay Osmond. Just the two of us filing cards in the office of the Osmond's Apartments they owned in Provo. He was cool. I left when a whole gang of goo goo eyed co-eds showed up.

I only saw David Cassidy on TV.

Cath and Cindy,
My John gets a kick out of the fact that I have a thing for older men. All my life my dream date has been with Shawn Conrey (I'm sure I've spelled his name wrong) I've also had a thing (off and on) for Kenny rogers, Roger Wittaker and even Burt Renalds now that he's let his hair go grey and and grown a beard! And don't get me started on Clint Eastwood! (Of course, I mean currently...non of that younger junk!)
Probably a little TMI but your comments made me laugh to myself and I had to share!

William said...

I like waterfalls too. In fact when I finally buy my patch of forestland somewhere it’s going to have a waterfall on it Period. I however have no interest in older men. I however do understand Erica’s Sean interest. I have a friend from Scotland, and my wife loves it when I invite him over because she loves to listen to the man talk.

Cathy Shields said...

Erica,
Sean Connery is a real looker and is aging well, I will admit. I also had a crush on Burt for a little while but it was during his non gray days.
I like Kenny Rogers music but I don't need to look at him.
Cindy
I forgot about Bobby Sherman, I had his pic on my wall also. Do you remember him?

The Forbes Family said...

I love blogs, I feel like I get to know people so much better even though we're far apart. People tend to be pretty honest when they write for some reason. I love it, keep it up Shiloh. Have I told you that Jason and I admire you and your Jason so much? Your kids are so sweet and fun and well behaved you know their parents have to be doing something very right! You guys rock! So sorry I couldn't visit with you cousin Jason, work stinks sometimes!
