  1. we have some similarities for sure..and some differences..anyway, i cry too at #100! And i’m older than you!!

  2. You are so good at this. You really should write a book. And you know I would not kid you about something like that. If I could come up with 100 things I even KNEW about myself, I think I could lend forgiveness to my heart.
    P.S. I am SOOO with you on living vicariously through the skinny daughter. And I love the fact that when we go shopping she tells me how nice I look in something. Must have done something right…

  3. Wow, Donny Osmond was the first person I wanted to marry too!
