56. I am very open minded, but when I am set in my ways there’s no changing my mind.
57. I take all the pictures in this house. My husband used to be the photographer, but now I am hardly in any pictures because I do all the picture taking.
58. I have not updated my kid’s scrapbooks in like 8 months.. How sad is that??
59. I love music.
60. I love going to concerts.. It’s on my list of favorite things ever.
61. I love to dance, even though I am not good at it.
62. I do not sing in front of anyone because I fear for their eardrums.
63. I hate my smile. It’s not very nice..
64. I am not photogenic at all… at least I hope I am not photogenic because if I look like that in real life.. whew….
65. I have mixed feelings about cleaning the house. I either lack or go crazy. When I go crazy look out.

70. I hate to cook. I only do it because I have to.. I am getting pretty decent at it though.
71. Growing up I was not allowed to cook, clean, do laundry or anything. Yes that sounds like I was spoiled, but I wanted to help. When I moved out I did not know how to do anything except make chocolate chip cookies.
72. My room was the cleanest room in the house when I lived with my parents.
73. I was not allowed to do anything growing up, but I found ways anyway. (I was a bit rebellious)
74. I hate spiders with a passion!
75. I love reading books, but I get so engrossed in the book I am reading that I will read instead of taking care of things. My husband can read 5 books at a time?? I don’t get it??
76. ok.. only 25 more. I am tired.
77. I love love chocolate. It is my favorite candy

82. I pierced my second hole myself. EEEEEKKK
83. My eyelashes flop and I have to curl them all the time or I look funny.
84. I wish they had a perm for eyelashes.
85. I hope that one day phish goes on a reunion tour and has a festival so that I can bring my sons.
86. The only babysitters I have are my brother’s and they are great with my kids. I am so blessed to have them. My parents watch them once in a while but it takes a lot out of them.
87. I hated tomatoes until I was pregnant with my first son. For some reason after that I could not get enough.
88. If I only had to eat one thing for the rest of my life, a restaurant down the street makes this salad that is amazing.. and it would be that.
89. I hate winter. I wish it was spring and summer all year round.
90. I love to swim.
91. When I was young I was not allowed to participate in any sports or extra curricular activities.
92. I want my boys to be able to play a sport, I believe it is very healthy and instills many great benefits for them to apply to every day life.
93. I love the ocean, the smell, the sand, the sound, all of it. But I am afraid of stepping on sea creatures…
94. I always wanted to skydiving or bungee jumping until I had kids, now I am a little chicken!

Great list. I've always wanted to do a 100 things about me list and never thought I could make it through. I'm impressed!!! I'm with you 100% about the flip flops until december and no socks rule!!

I love your list...partly because it sounds almost exactly how I would write it. I too love chocolate, being tan, wearing flipflops and I live at the ocean so you know it is top of my list. It sounds like you are a lot of fun to hang out with so I will keep my fingers crossed that you will continue to find new friends. I am not a stay at home mom, but did take time off with my first and we joined many mommy groups so he could play and I could meet mommies. Granted some of them were off their rockers (I mean that in a totally respectful way), but there were some cool moms that I did meet. I'll be checking by often!!
