Whew!  What the hey!  That's a freakin' long list.  And Congratulations!  You're still here!  Thank you for sticking around.  Now, I will have to kill you. LOL!

Allow me to THANK each and everyone of you who have visited my blog.  I'm so grateful, to everyone, who have reached out to me and allowed me to be part of your world!  The friendships I have formed with my blog buddies are as significant and meaningful as those I have formed in my real life.

I am really excited about what the next 100 posts will bring.



30 Days of Thanks (Day 21)

I am thankful for the INTERNET. There was a time when there was absolutely no way to communicate with anybody in another place or country without it costing a lot of money. Or gathering information without going through books and encyclopedias.  Now it's as easy as clicking a mouse!  Being away from home, the internet plays a huge role in keeping in touch with family and friends. I am also thankful for the people I met through it.  The internet is the medium that brought us together.  For good or bad, the internet is truly an essential part of our lives.  That being said, it should be used wisely.



  1. good for you for thinking up 100 things. i don't think i could.

    you don't like country music? i don't think i can follow you anymore ;)

  2. @Marathonmaiden: Noooo! Ok I like it already, hehe ;p

  3. #55 we have in common.

    and what is this? ANTM, TAR from the TV shows....I thought I knew all the TV shows.

    Two weeks and we are off at the gun.

  4. That is quite the list! I got pregnant in Ohio when I was 20! I was 21 when I had my son (in Ohio!). In what city did you have your daughter? It's nice to see another young parent who turned out well. :)

  5. We DO have a lot in common! That's amazing that you could list 100 things, I have trouble doing 3 things Thursday because I can't think of anything... :)

  6. @Jason:
    ANTM = America's Next Top Model
    TAR = The Amazing Race =)

    @Christina: Cleveland! Wow that's cool! Yup, it wasn't easy but we did it =)

  7. happy century posting. best to you and keep on running.

  8. I read them all, don't kill me!!!
    This is great idea that I might steal!!! ha ha!!!
    you wish you were 7 inches taller and I wish I was 7 inches shorter!!

  9. 22 and 23... we are polar opposites... I guess that means we would compliment each other well.

    Uh-oh, I'm a nagger... guess we can't be friends... only because I totally lack PATIENCE and hate waiting...

    Like your shrimp allergy, I recently became allergic to red wine... I love both of those things... not sure which is worse!!!

    88 & 89 - I'd be glad to donate some of mine...

  10. Hi Julie,
    Wow, I am impressed with your ability to think of 100 very cool things about yourself:) This was a fun post!

    I was a cheerleader in high school too! Football, wrestling and much fun:)

    Have a great week! Hugs!

  11. Congrats on your 100th post. I watched Rent last night on TV. La Vie Boheme is one of my favorite scenes.

  12. Yep, we have a lot in common! Especially #8, 15, 34, 46 (I wish you lived closer! No one else will go eat these things with me!!!), 51, 61, 64, 67 (I have a pit bull, an American bulldog, and a cat!), 70(!!!), 75 (more like what comes AFTER death), 80 (are we long-lost sisters????), 81, 87 (as of Memorial Day of this year. What a feeling!), and 95.

    But why so early with the Christmas tree??? lol We do NOT have that in common! I wouldn't even HAVE one if my husband didn't force it.

    Hey, you commented on my blog a little while ago that the same thing had happened to you and that was how you were injured. What were you referring to? I haven't been following you all that long, so I don't know the history there!

    Thanks for the offer to run with me, but I'm not sure how well that would work. You're doing the Galloway method and I haven't trained that way. I would be afraid to change my tactics this late in the game! I don't want to do something on race day that I've never done before. I would like to at least meet up at the expo or start line though! You left me your email address in a comment. I'll email you my cell # so you can text me! Or call me, either one. (Do people even use cell phones to talk on anymore? lol) We're not flying in until Friday afternoon, so I doubt we get there early enough to go to the expo that night. I'm sure I'll be going Saturday.

    Did you get your confirmation email? I got mine a couple of days ago. I'm in corral 16. Do you know where you're at in the corrals?

  13. I loved reading your list - Interesting to know the "Hot Legs" origin AND my fav musical of all time is Rent and Seasons of Love makes me sooooo happy. I just posted that video on my fb page about a week or so ago AND just downloaded it to my iPod it's in my running rotation... though it's slower, it always makes me motivated and happy in my run.

  14. Congratulations on 100 posts. That list is quite impressive too.

  15. Congrats on your 100th post! We have a lot in common too! :)

  16. Congrats on the 100th post!! I loved reading all of your facts:) My computer is my extra limb too! You are adorable.

  17. This was fun! I dislike the word hate too...rarely use it. Facebook is easy to be addicted to but so is this blog world if I'm not careful. Happy 100th post day!

  18. I love reading these lists! I'm type O too, Universal Donors Baby!

  19. Now I am really happy that you pray every day and that you are a born again Christian. Those two are the Most important. I quit smoking too. lol. I loved your list. BTW, if you LOVE ENGLISH accents, you really should listen to as they are from the UK. Go now and check it out. You will LOVE it. Thanks for sharing. I think I am on post 120 or something.

  20. I love that you came up with 100 things! I think it would take me a while! Hopefully we can run into each other in Vegas!!

  21. A few things we have in common...I am also a cryer. My roommate freshman year in college said I had "emotional diarrhea." I also avoid the word 'hate', yet hate it when things don't go according to plan.

    One thing we don't have in common - I actually really like math. Ha! What a geek!

  22. Congrats on 100 posts! That is a lovely list! Lots of points made me think there.

  23. Woww.. you know yourself that much! I can't even think of top 10 things about me, hahaha! So cool Ms. Julie, congratulations on your 100th blog post and 100 list. You don't need to kill me, nothing to worry about as we have something in common in #22. :D

  24. Congrats for 100 posts and congrats for your 100 list I don't think I could think of 100 things about me haha

  25. Wow...this is awesome! I don't think I could come up with a list like this..well, as interesting as yours anyway. :)

  26. Good job on making a lit with 100 things about you. I enjoyed reading it and to get to you know you better! :) Congrats on 100 posts!!!

  27. congrats girl!!! 100 is something to be proud of!! I LOVED your list!! :D you are amazing!! :D
