100 Things

I was reading a blog a few days ago and I saw that she had compiled a list of 100 things about herself. I had seen others do this so I thought I would do it too. I thought this would make a good post to start off the new month (where did Janaury go?). Its kinda hard to put together 100 things about yourself. I would start and then move on to something else. So this list took me a few days to complete but here it is.

I tried leaving a comment on your blog but it wouldn't let me. :( I tried it on a few different posts but it never seemed to load the comment section. I wanted to let you know so you can get it fixed. Hopefully you'll read this comment. Thanks for following me! :)
