  1. Saw your comment at The Gaspards blog. Are you from Iowa? That is where my husband grew up and his parents actually still live there. I just have to say you need to try red beans and rice. We live in the South too. My husband is a convert. He doesn't have any desire to return to the small town he grew up in. Where are you in Iowa? My URL is
    Come by and see me.

  2. wow! I actually just read them all! ha! Dad's are hard, we both have especially pig-headed fathers. I just try to remember, we're their daughters, so they did do something right!

  3. Sarah,
    This was great!

    Your heart for God blesses me!

    Happy 100th post!

  4. I read the whole list...that was a fun list. Gotta say, I love your blog, it is my favorite stop of the day :)

  5. I really enjoy reading your blog. You make me smile. Happy 100th post!

  6. Happy 200th post. Great list.!! And congrats to all your traffic. It is huge for just starting your blog in Feb. I think we started our blog about the same time. I don't post as much as you though. You do a great job and your blog is always so fun to read.

  7. Congrats on the new milestone...100 posts! That really took some time for you to write. BTW- I like Tetris too! :)

  8. Thanks for giving me an idea for my post for today. I totally missed my 100th post, so I'm gonna do something like this.

    We even like the same things, except I got rid of my 3rd Caravan. It was broken way too much. Now I've got a Highlander (less Mommy looking, just in case some young guy wanted to check me out ... right? .. don't worry, no one's checking me out unless they're bald, toothless, and over 60).

  9. I read them all! Do I get a prize? ;-)

    I found out about the 100th post thing when I had posted about 97 entries. I started a list, but never finished it. Now it will have to be my, like, 125th post or something! :-)

    And your list gives my list an inferiority complex, so I may have to rework it a bit... Okay, I may never actually get it posted, but I wanted someone to know I tried!

    CONGRATULATIONS on finding a new love! :-D

  10. I couldn't believe you were actually going to list 100 items, but they flew by!
    You're the best!

  11. I read them all! So I expect that when I do this, you will read them all- if I can actually come up with 100 :)

  12. Have you even missed one day of posting? Impressive, you are so consistent!

    So I was nodding my head to so many of your 100 things. 43,46,48 58,66,67,68 etc. This was so fun to read! Love it. You are a neat, neat girl. (I was going to say lady but that sounds old)

  13. I just love all those 100 things about you! Fun post! you always make my day!

  14. Read all 100! We are a lot alike. I think it must be a boy-momma thing! Except maybe the in-law thing! :) NEways, have a teenage texter, so glad I found your blog and we are bloggy friends.

  15. Happy 100 posts!
    Fun list... I might be inspired to try when I reach 100... :)
    Love reading your blog!

  16. great list, you are such fun. totally w/ you on the library and legos, and food, and music, crank it up! congrats on the 100th post!!

  17. I'm patting myself on the back for reading your entire awesome list. BUT, you forgot to mention what a diehard RUNNER you are! Hee! Hee! Speaking of which, only 2 more days until our 1st race. Pray that my back starts to feel better or we will be walking it.

  18. I read the whole list
    Loved it
    Love your blog
    Your a blessing!
    Be Blessed:o)

  19. Go Sarah GO!!!

    I can definitely say that I have truly enjoyed reading this blog of yours from it's beginning.

    Keep those posts coming!

  20. That is a LOT of posts and a LOT of stuff...I'll have to come back and read them later. I love reading even though I don't comment much. You are fun and funny and I enjoy hearing about your life!

  21. Woo-hoo!!! 100th post! I actually read them your blog, it was a fun and insightful read! (I can't get over that you were baptized in a river!)

    Thanks for stopping by today and for your sweet comment to me!

    Tracy = )

  22. Congratulations! I love stopping by to read what cha got to say. It always puts a smile on my face.

  23. got as far as the McDonalds french fries and had to comment! :) Have you seen "Supersize Me"? Check it out if not!

  24. Oh, and the Cheerios snack mix is a Must Eat. Cheddar flavored is the best! MMMmmmmmmm, I just had some tonight again. I could eat all 28 grams of fat in one sitting.

  25. I read all of them! We have so much in common and I love your blog. I'm adding you to my bloglines. :)

  26. Seriously So much in common~ I can NOT stand Sponge Bob!
    I Love Ikea, thunderstorms, Tetris & red shoes!!!! My dad is the same way~ always running.

    I Love loud music so much, some times I get worried about Josh's hearing when he is older!

  27. I saw your comment over at Jackie's blog and it just spoke to my heart in its elegant simplicity.

    THought I'd jump over and take a looksee. Lurved your 100 things. I feel you on so many of them, especially the men's restroom thing. And men's locker room. My son is now 12 and 5'10", but I remember his little boy days and my angst like it was yesterday.

    Blessings on your week. BTW, we have a dachshund, too. :)

  28. Hey, Sarah!
    I just read your 100 things and all I have to say is...
    I like you a lot! Seriously!

    Nice meeting you! I love 100 things because it makes it easy to cut to the chase & see who you really are! I'll be back to read your blog!
    Angie xoxo
