100 Things

Now for a little fun. I have just recently entered my 100th post, so in keeping with blog tradition, here are 100 things you may or may not know about me. A little peek at my life. Hope y’all find a good laugh within.

  1. I am completely devoted to my Lord and my family. They are everything to me.
  2. I always wanted to be a redhead; instead I have a redheaded daughter.
  3. I love coffee. I love the aroma, the flavor, the warmth, the atmosphere, everything.
  4. I taught my husband to love coffee, and now he loves it more than I.
  5. If you ask me my favorite “anything”, I will almost always tell you, “I don’t know.” I’m not sure if that makes me indecisive or if I just like a lot of things.
  6. I consider myself a jack-of-all-trades, but master of none. (That means I can do a lot of little things, but there’s not one at which I am truly accomplished.)
  7. I am southern born and love the south with a passion.
  8. I pretty much love anything I love with a passion.
  9. In high school I loved English, music, drama and photography.
  10. In college I loved statistics, anatomy, nutrition and cooking.
  11. Does this mean I’m “both-brained”?
  12. I am a cat person, but my hubby and son are allergic, so I enjoy my friends’ cats now.
  13. Get me in a kitchen, and I am a very content.
  14. That means I love to cook and bake and especially eat.
  15. I used to spend hours in my basement pretending to figure skate.
  16. I can’t even stand up on a pair of ice skates.
  17. I love to play sports, especially volleyball, softball and football.
  18. I love to watch basketball, but get me on a court for a lay-up and I will trip over my own two feet.
  19. In case you were wondering, I only have two feet, so I don’t know why I said “own two feet” rather than “own feet” as if I have three or four feet. Okay, I’m going to shut up now.
  20. I love to laugh, but I rarely laugh out loud when watching a movie or television.
  21. If I laugh out loud during a movie or TV show, then you know I must really enjoy it.
  22. I am half-Italian, but I act like I am full Italian. I love my Italian roots!
  23. I met Brian in college and knew the night I met him that I was going to marry him.
  24. I did not tell him this until after we were engaged.
  25. I am a girlie girl and a tomboy. Is this possible?

  28. I love sandy beaches and ocean breezes and lots of sunshine.
  29. If I moved away from where I live I’d miss the mountains.

  32. When I was a kid I would spend hours on the swingset singing.
  33. I think my neighbors hated me.
  34. I have little rhythm; therefore, I am embarrassed to dance. Well, that, and I just plain ol’ don’t know what I’m doing.
  35. My husband is a great dancer and makes me dance on occasion.
  36. My in-laws are incredible dancers and make me jealous.
  37. I have a lot of pet peeves.
  38. One of my pet peeves is people who use improper grammar when they speak (which is really hypocritical because I do it , too) .
  39. My friend, Kristin, is laughing at me right now for #38.
  40. When I was a kid I formed a club with my friend, Monica. It was the WAHM’s. I’m too embarrassed to tell you what it was.

  44. I had to say that because I knew it was the right thing to say.

  46. It didn’t pay very well. I still had a lot of college debt.

  56. I never used it for my career.

  58. God’s pretty cool like that.
  59. My husband is the most devoted man I know. He loves me even though there’s a whole lot of yuck to love.
  60. I am a morning person, or at least I was until I had kids. I wonder if that will change back.
  61. I am horrible at games like Balderdash, Mafia and Poker. That’s because I’m too easy to read.
  62. I worry too much about what people think of me.
  63. I wish I didn’t because my life would be a whole lot easier.
  64. I love to write. No, seriously, I love to pick up a good pen and write, even if it’s just a grocery list. When I watch a movie and someone writes, I lean forward and watch their technique and wish I had a pen as well.

  66. I would love to travel to Europe, especially Italy.

  75. I love flowers, especially roses and magnolias.
  76. I pretty much just love pretty things.
  77. I have about 15 boxes of crystalware and china that I’ve inherited and had to keep in storage. I can’t wait to one day have a china cabinet so I can get it out and actually use it.
  78. People who think you should think just like them drive me crazy. That’s why it’s called an opinion. Let’s just all be happy being who God created us to be.
  79. I am a diehard Cowboys fan.
  80. Give me fruit desserts over chocolate ones any day. I used to have peach pie for my birthday every year.
  81. I read cookbooks from cover to cover.

  84. I love to read. Right now I am reading 6 books. It just depends on what mood I’m in.
  85. I used to spend weeks in PA with my grandparents as a kid. Those are some of my favorite memories.

  87. I am a detail person and completely Type-A.
  88. I loved school and college and academia. I could be a full-time student and be very happy.

  91. I need to loosen up a lot.
  92. I love fun socks, but I never spend the money on them.
  93. Southern Living is my all-time favorite magazine. I could live in those pages.
  94. In school I hated civics and economics. Now I wish I had listened more.
  95. I shuffle a mean deck of cards.
  96. I am a terrible back seat driver, and I wish there were a brake on my side of the car.
  97. I hate traveling in airplanes.
  98. This proves that I am a control freak.
  99. I cry. A lot. About a lot of little things. And about a lot of big things. It’s healing to me, and while I used to regard my emotions in complete disdain, God has taught me what a gift they are, and I am thankful for my tears.
  100. I am completely devoted to my Lord and my family. They are everything to me. Oh, wait, that was #1, too… guess it’s really important to me.

  1. Dear Angie, (and even more dear!)

    I love that you did this! I have a journal where I write scribbles of things I love and things I dream of doing someday–little things like this. I started it so if something ever happened to me my children wouldn’t just know the big story people told about me but the silly things that really make me who I am.

    Thank goodness you didn’t let our WAHM secret out! I cannot wait to spend the day with you tomorrow.

    I love you. Monica


  2. Hey Angie,
    I had a stressful day at work today, (same as every day lately, but I do love my job on a construction site,) so I decided to facebook and go online. Reading your 100 helped me to understand my own wife better…I think you two are very similar in personality.


  3. Angie,

    I love,love, Reeses Peanut Butter Cups. We’ll have to sit one day and just enjoy those delicious yummy treats together! I know a few others who love them just as much. We could have a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup party! I love parties!
    Thanks for sharing your children. They are a delight and added joy to my day.

    Love Diane


  4. Gir…I love this!


  5. I do NOT look like Dan Marino. πŸ™‚


  6. Me, too on #1, 3 (but trying no caffeine lately), 6, 14, 19, 20, 23 ;), 27, 29, 33, 37, 38, 58, 62&63, 65, 70 (except I’m a father), 72, 83, 87!, I’m so not 89 (though Brian also helped me strengthen my skipping), 91, 98.

    And my guess on the WAHM is that the H stands for Hate. Yes?



    although, i don’t know about loving the cowboys, but… i guess you are right, we all have opinions and that is okay! πŸ™‚ i miss you… we need to hang out soon! *BIG HUG* i would love to cry and laugh with you again!
