Nice to meet you!

I like women who curse, for the record. I'm not sure why. And I'm also not sure if that makes me bad or not. Fortunately, I don't really care.

Having kids really is amazing, isn't it? I never wanted them until I turned 30 and then all hell broke loose. Now I have three and wouldn't have it any other way.

Have a great day, Heather!!

Jodi said...

Oh, we have so many similarities! I too am a perfectionist who hates cooking, am close to my parents, hate to wear shorts, love capris, hate working outside in the garden, LOVE my children, wore braces, have a teaching degree, love to get mail, comments, email, not a morning person, didn't like turning 30, and am addicted to blogging. Okay, I'll stop there. Hee hee

Beth said...

We have so many similarities! I loved this post! I am not even sure if I could come up with 100 things!! Love it!

The Hooper Family said...

I think I could have said at least 1/2 of those about you! Glad you haven't changed too much :)
I just told my mom the other day about "someone" stealing the first baby name.

Ohh..and I secretly enjoy getting up with Laney ONCE a night too. but shhhh don't tell, b/c I like to complain about it too! But that is the only time I usually have where it is just the 2 of us!

You don't know me but I found out about your situation from another blog. I also have a 6 month old daughter (and a 6 year-old) and I can't imagine the strength it must take you to get through each day. I wanted to let you know I will pray for you to fight this thing and beat it. Your beautiful kids deserve to grow up with their mommy! Hang in there! Your faith and the support of all your family and friends will get you through!

Katie said...

I was just curious which type of diaper you decided on?

Beav's Wife said...

We have a lot in common...I'm especially interested in how you transitioned back to eating chicken! I've been a strict vegetarian for about 14 years...I've thought about trying meat again but don't know if I could do it!!! I craved chicken when preggers but never tried any!

Tammy said...


I loved reading things about you..I love your sense of humor! You are too funny! Thanks for sharing!

Christy said...

I curse a lot too. And I never cook. And I am 5'10". Are we twins or something?

Mamasphere said...

That was one of the best 100 lists I've ever read! I didn't want to stop once.

I'm off to go look up what an Equinox looks like.

Heather @ A Boy, A Girl, A Pug said...

Don't know how to get back to you on your diaper question so I hope you check this.

We are currently using BumGenius All in One diapers and we love them.

I have tried out a few others and like the Happy Heineys. But overall I am completely satisfied with the Bum Genius AIOs.

Hope you give them a shot.

They are cute and so much better for the environment. Not to mention, it really does save you money in the long run (and I love that! It means I can buy more clothes for my kids!!)

Kristen said...

I am constantly checking for new email too!!

I LOVE it Heather. That was so much fun, and truly we have lots in common.

I too talk to my mom several times a day. I really thought I was the only one. Glad to know I am in great company!!

Hoping all is going well this week. I am taking a break sort of. As soon as my reader shows you have a new post, I am right here reading. :)

Chelle said...

Heather, we are a lot alike my friend :)
I hate mornings, I love mail, I am always refreshing my e-mail, I love blogging, I curse like a sailor, I love my little girl, I love shopping...and I could list many many more :)
I want to try out some cloth diapers, too...I am off to go and check them out!
Thank you for the list, sweetie! I loved learning all of these things about you!

THopgood said...

It's nice to "meet" you. I mosied on over here from McMommyblog. We have a lot in common. The 2 that stick in my head are 1) I also curse like a sailor and 2) My kids' closets are OUT OF CONTROL!...actually, it's not the closets but ME that's OUT OF CONTROL!

Although, I don't know if we can be friends due to you being a Diet Pepsi girl...I'm a Diet Coke gal myself.

Patrice said...

I love the story about how you picked out Kyler's name, and what a great name you both chose! I have to admit these 100 lists never appealed to me, I thought it would be way too much info to read and it would be boring, but I was not bored once! I loved learning more about you!

Anonymous said...

RE: #46 - We are so glad you enjoyed teaching. We enjoyed you as a teacher/tutor. Tray asks about you often, he (we) were so luckly to find you. Ok he also asks about Kyler and Belle but he is 9 so don't be jealous. : ) Marci Bell

Kerry said...

Very well done. Loved the stream of consciousness. Jodi and I are a lot alike. Jodi is a lot like you. Therefore, you and I are a lot alike! Although I don't like to curse. Um...I think my nose just got longer. Damn.

Jenn said...

That was a great list! Some of the things are the same as I will put on mine, some are not. I hope you had a good day!

Lisa@verybusymomwith4 said...

Great list! I'm short and I love to cook but I still think you are pretty cool :)

Leslie said...

Heather I missed this post the other night. I guess I was tired. I too love blogging, love emails and comments. And am in love with my children and can't stop shopping for them. Especially shoes. I buy lots of shoes for them! lol~ love your list. It's nice to get to know you! ;)

Wendi said...

I am sitting at 98 posts.
In two days I will post my 100th.
With the exception of one or two things...I think I could just copy and paste your 100.
Would that be alright?
It would sure save me a lot of typing and thinking.
Congratulations on reaching 100!!!
Loved your list!

Clare said...

Heather, just got done reading your 100 things and I probably have half of those that are the same. I secretly heart reality TV and breastfeeding. But, don't tell Chris because I loved to complain about it and getting up in the night! XO, Clare
