Good job Anne Marie! Cutest apostles, I'm laughing so hard!!
I had to spend quite a bit of time in a cadaver lab for an anatomy class. The teacher was going to let me opt out of the lab because I told him it gave me serious nightmares. I love your list! Someday I'll do one.

WeTheTeeples said...

I loved reading your list. I enjoyed learning the not so obvious about you.I agree about the milk thing. I hate straight milk. I am on 95. I should just sit down and finish.

Williams Family said...

Wow Annemarie! That's such a fun thing to do. I loved reading what you wrote. I might have to do one, because I love writing lists as well. Although, I am not sure I could write a list of 100 things. Pretty impressive.

Christie said...

Great list! I laughed that you like to mow the lawn and shovel snow - and especially that you said how lucky your husband is. I also love to do those same things, but it drives Ben crazy. He thinks they are "man jobs" and it bugs him that I want to do it. I always tell him how lucky he is that I don't expect him to be the one responsible for those chores.

Betty Grace said...

I'm Steph's sister and my favorite day of the week is Thursday too. I'm totally doing this on my blog.

Heidi Irene said...

#47, don't understand Michael Buble either? I also am a list maker... and love to throw stuff away. Wish I loved to cook like you, and eat chocolate while making dinner and look like you! Cute list!! I love that my sister Betsy is blog stalking- isn't this fun!?

Jenny W said...

YEAH! I was so excited to read is awesome, just like you! :) And I hope Lessley finishes hers, too! I loved your hunting comment....that is hilarious!

Lindsay said...

We have a lot in common, you are so funny, FREE THE LLAMAS!

The Gatherum Family said...

Loved learning more about you! Your list was great-I love that everyone is doing them!

Anonymous said...

Ampy, I love this post. I can't believe how much we have in common. I may have to try doing this too, but I could probably just copy and paste yours. :)

Mary said...

WOW! Good job! This would take me forever... I'd better get started. I loved reading and learning more about you. You make me laugh.

carrie said...

You're so funny!! I learn more things about you everyday!! I guess I need to pay a little bit more attention to the apostles.... You're such a silly girl!! I love you.... I do have to disagree with you about Michael Buble. I love him. I know, he drives my husband crazy....but for some reason, I love that kind of music. I love "old music".... I'll make sure not to buy you his latest CD for your birthday coming up!! :o) I TOTALLY AGREE about the milk thing though!! Maybe that's why my body feels like it's falling apart though... Uh-Oh. :o)
I am about half way through with mine. I was a little worried about it. Mine is a little silly....but Heather convinced me it's OK. I was worried I wouldn't have any friends after they read it. ha ha You're such a great person...and you forgot to put how TALENTED you are, on your list. I love the stitchery!! You're amazing!!

Gina Steinagel said...

Love your list...I'm sure us list makers had a much easier time with ours. Love that you mentioned making lists twice on your list!! You are so great and so funny. I'm going to have to disagree with the milk thing though...milk rocks and I drink it with everything!! You go girl on liking to do that "Husband" stuff...not me I'm a wimp with all that, in fact I have never mowed a lawn and never will!! Love ya

Julia said...

Oh finally someone will admit about the Buble thing. I can't stand him but have never admitted it for fear the pitchforks will come out.

I love mowing, vacuuming and shoveling too. I could copy lots of things from your list!

carrie said...

Sorry to comment AGAIN, but I forgot to tease you about the BAT thing.... What??!! They scare the crap out of me. I can remember once, a long long time ago....back in high school, and my friends and I were running across someone's back yard. Well.....the trees were kind of low, and I felt something in my hair....and I was swatting it away, and it was a BAT!! It scared the you know what out of me....and I have never forgotten it. I am terrified of them. I was so glad in Twilight....that Edward didn't turn into a BAT. :o) You'll have to tell me why you love bats someday. You always have interesting I can't wait to hear!! :o) oh yeah....I love love love Cafe Rio's tortilla soup, too!! I won't comment again...don't worry~!! :o)

Loved reading your list. I love these 100 lists. I am working on mine. It is just taking me a while to think of that many things.

Aaron said...
