4. My favorite word is Epiphany
5. I wanna make a list of 100 things...can you tell? (only 95 to go...)

April said...

1. Thank you for pointing out my error, which has been corrected. I am sure I can count on you to tell me I have something stuck in my teeth too. :)
2. Being ENFJ rocks!
3. I think he is stalking us. I also saw him at Disneyland.
4. I too appreciate Epiphany. I also like Explicitly, Aesthetic and all derivitives of Justice (justification, justify).
5. You should definitely do the 100 things, but I know how you are and you will do 102 things just to show me up. ;)

Katie, my mom once told me that I would be better off not to SHOULD on people. (You should do this, you should'nt do that...etc.) I thought it was great advice. :)

April, I would tell you if you had food in your teeth, but probably not that you had toilet paper hanging off of your shorts. I would point and laugh. Sorry.

Lastly, another mom-ism that comes to mind here is, "Do I need to separate you two?" HAHAHAHA

Love the fire in both of you,

Brenda said...

Can I please move to AZ to be best friends with you and Katie??? I read your list and I think we are BFF's!! We have to bond over the same line-up with the kids and with baseball loving husbands and of course, the debacle over emailing inappropriate stuff and so much more. I don't know you but I think I have a crush on you!!! :)(can i say that without sounding completely stalkish and weird?) Hope you get my sentiment. Your new bestie, brenda

Ummmm... I am so not cleaning my basement right now.

This list is AWESOME! I'm going to do one but I need to wait a couple of days so that I am not influenced by yours. I might do 110 things though. LOL! I kid, I kid.

Tanya said...

I feel like I know you and I don't believe that we have ever met. Your list was great. That inspired me to create my own. It took a couple of days to put it all together. Now I just have to figure out how to post it. Surprisingly I came up with 101 as well.
