Happy 100 posts!

Wendy said...

I read them all! Interesting stuff. Happy 100 posts!

sisters with style said...

Happy 100th post.

Don't you just love Ted's. Can you still eat there being allergic to peanuts? Supposedly they cook in peanut oil so we stopped going once we found out that my youngest was allergic to peanuts. Let me tell you we totally miss it.

tommiea said...

mary yes, and yes, remember I was the good child.

creole wisdom- thanks, it seems so long already!

susan-yes, I am...I started just before my almost four year old was born.

wendy- I wondered if any one would!

sisters with style- .. peanuts are a legume not a tree nut, which is what I am allergic to.

tulipmom said...

Wow, you've been to the North Pole?!! It drives me crazy when people pronounce pecans as "pi-cahns."

I enjoyed your list. Happy 100th Post! I completely missed mine.

Beth said...

I read them all!!! I just reached two hundred...but I just recapped what happened in the months that lead up to 200. Because I was able to lay down 200 posts in 7 months. Cause I blog like its my job. haha.

sisters with style said...

I just figured you were allergic to both, because darn the luck, we are. Lucky for you it is just tree nuts.

Heather said...

I read your whole list. Love it. I think I'm going to steal your categories if that's o.k...
Hope your husband isn't gone too long. I've been without mine for over a year now. Yuck!

Janet said...

OMG I can pinch with my toes, too! And so can my cousin. I thought we were the only ones :-)
