Jenny great list! I LOVED reading it...it was fun to get to know you better! We have alot in common although I've never had a caramel milkshake...sounds delicious. I can't believe you have bungee jumped...I would be way to scared. I think it is amazing that you had Miller against all odds and I love his name too! Congrats on 100!!!! Laura

That was a great list! We have so much in common it's strange! My birthday is December 5, but I'll be 33 and you know how I feel about Y&R and reality tv!! I really want to go parasailing...hubby and I just discussed that the other day, but I know I DON'T ever want to bungee jump...you're much braver than I am!! Loved the list...thanks for sharing!!

Dee said...

Awesome List!!!! Happy 100th post!!!!! I love getting to know you better! Ok - Days of our Lives - you are so speaking my language!!!!!! Bungee jumping - btdt - HATED it!!!!!!

I love Miller's name - and of course the fact that he was a miracle baby!!!! :)

thanks for sharing - you are certainly a sweet person!!! :)

Christina_the_wench said...

Great list. Thanks for letting us know you better.

Chappyswife said...

Look at you go, Girl! Happy 100! I liked you just fine until #94, I think it was ~ a size 6! We do have quite a few in common (except the size 6 of course

Anyway, how fun, interesting stuff! I don't think I could ever bungee jump, though, so I won't be signing up for the Amazing Race any time soon.

Maybe one of these days I'll make it to 100. If I did more writing than reading I'd already be there. Have a great Tuesday.

Barb said...

Congratulations on 200 posts, Jen. What a great job you did on your 100things.

Let's see. You're size 6 but wear size 9 shoes. So you must be tall and skinny, right!

I'm sorry you lost your grandfather. You'll always miss him but consider yourself blessed that you had a grandfather to love. Neither of mine knew I even existed, they cared so little.

I'm sure the lump in your breast was scary - I've had the same thing and you hold your breath until they say "benign."

You and my daughter would get along great - Steel Magnolias is her all time favorite movie and I can no longer stand to watch it with her because she knows every single word and says them out loud as the movie plays, southern accent and all. :-)

You should find a Bunko group. It's a riot!

And I'm not at all surprised you were voted Friendliest in your senior year - you're one on the friendliest people in all of bloggityville.

Just a wonderful list. I enjoyed this so much.

Mike said...

Congratulations on your 100th post.

I could relate to your numbers 42 and 43. My dad died when I was 11 months old. I have no recollection of him, except for an old black and white photo of him. That photo is my proof that he is my father.

My father is bald. So am I. Genetics.


Christina said...

Wow what a great post. I can't believe how much I learn about everyone when this comes up.
I was wondering where you found the name Miller. I like it, but never knew anyone with this name.

I am a reality tv junkie too as you know.

hot wings and beer...another favorite of mine.

I make lists every day. I tend to make too many lists. I make lists about my lists. Kind of like sub lists.

I read about haunted houses, I watch tv about haunted houses, I am too chicken to go into a haunted house. I watch this stuff on the travel channel all the time.

I love chinese food, but stink at using chopsticks. I swear my fingers must be totally uncoordinated.

100 posts....Congratulations!

PS you are on my favortie blogger list for next week so stay tuned.

Christina said...

Oh I forgot, I have 2 cups of coffee in the morning. Sometimes 2 types of creamer and sometimes just french vanilla. I'm sure it's people like us who keep coffeemate in business. Maybe we should be getting royalties.

Rona's Home Page said...

Wow! That was a great list. And you're a size 6? Impressive.

Jennifer said...

Hey girl. Sorry I haven't been able to comment on any of your posts without the keyboard, but I have been reading faithfully! Loved your list. There were so many things that we have in common. I hate it when people "pop by". Drives me nuts.

I do have to know though. Where, oh where, do you all get Starbucks around here? Am I missing something here? I saw that there is one coming to the mall in Michaelson's old place, which is good because the original place would have sucked.

Bungee jumping...no way. At Venture River, on the big big slide, there is the old Bungee platform. No way. And heights don't bother me. Falling from them though...

I have had so many opportunities to play Bunco, but just have never done it.

Take care :)

Jennifer said...

Oh, and also. I love my Ti-faux. I mean, how did we ever live without this wonderful invention? Ours went out for a few days last summer. Very bad two days. Actually had to sit there and watch a whole program. No pause button. Horrible.

Sandra said...

Loved this Jen and congratulations on your 100th post, WOOHOO :)

I have so many things in common with you, I also drink 2 cups of coffee each morning,

I also hate it when people pop out without calling LOL

I LOVE reading about haunted houses and I watch the scary shows on the Travel Channel LOL

Loved this list, thanks for sharing so much about you, feels great getting to know you better :)


fennymun said...

Hi, I like your title "A good cup of coffee" as I love coffee (though not picky on brand). It isn't easy to compile such a long list! Have a nice day!

Tina Leigh said...

"Here! You can hit Weezer!! HIT HER!!" LOL! Oh Jen I loved this 100th post of 100 things about you..but your a size 6 with a 9 shoe..I'm trying to picture that, LOL. I know you are beautiful...you sure are inside! HAPPY 100TH!!

Cheryl said...

Congratulations on your 100th post! A very interesting list. Love that you named Miller for that reason. Makes it extra special!
I'm a Mary Kay consultant too. What seminar are you in?

Pattie said...

I really enjoyed reading your list. You sound like a great person! We have many things in common, too.
I also love carmel milkshakes (well, carmel anything!) also, red wine and cheese, margaritas, and Starbucks! HA! Do you see a pattern here?
I have been married twelve years, too and have a size nine foot. Oh? And you sell Mary Kay? I love Mary Kay...the only makeup I wear. I swear that is the best stuff.

Cece said...

What a great list! #19! Ugh I hate when people just show up, too.

Amber said...

Wow, what a great post to hit on my first visit to your blog! I feel like I know you already. :-)
