Look, Here's 50 More!

Just when you thought it was safe to venture back in to the Bloggy waters...I have 50 more tidbits. What's that sound you hear? Oh, it's my marching band.

101. Never underestimate the value and importance of well made foundation garments.
102. This wisdom might just come from my dear grandmother, otherwise know as the Girdle Queen.
103. She also believed good underwear was white, and anything else...well, let's just say ladies of questionable character wore the other.
104. My mom didn't want her to know she bought me a beige bra-zeer. Ahem.
105. Other than my Valentine box winning our classroom contest in 6th grade, I don't usually win contests.
106. I never give up hope though.
107. I am not afraid to change my hairstyle.
108. In fact, I enjoy it.
109. After all, it's just hair, and thankfully, it grows back.
110. However, I have made some errors in judgment along the way.
111. Two words: spiral perm.
112. I resembled a shrub.
113. I have a problematic left foot.
114. This stems from an episode in college, when I broke my foot.

115. Um, yeah, when I jumped out a window with my roommate because of some pledging silliness. Long story. You had to be there. It seemed necessary at the time.
116. Thankfully, I can run...although it may need work in the future.
117. I wear glasses and contacts, well, not at the same time of course.
118. If I wasn't such a chicken, I'd have Lasik.
119. Something about being awake and seeing the surgery puts me over the edge.
120. I dream of someday tooling around on one of these...

121. Of course looking fabulous in a skirt and ballet flats, a la Audrey.
122. I can dream, right?
123. In case you haven't guessed it already, Roman Holiday is one of my favorite movies.
124. I love old movies, especially black and white.
125. Back when stars were really stars, you know?
126. My Fiesta dishes make me happy.
127. I am just OCD enough to try to balance the colors when I stack them in the cabinet.
128. I also love kitchen towels. Fun.
130. I don't consider myself a complete neat freak.
131. Although I do make my bed every morning. Just so.
132. I have also been known to twitch when Annelise tours the kitchen grabbing every edge of the counters and leaving her mark.
133. Don't get me started on the stainless steel.
134. It bothers me to leave dishes in the sink.
135. I like for my kitchen sink to be shiny and sparkly.
136. But, um...no, I'm not a neat freak.
137. Have I mentioned I love flamingos?

138. I think they are an under appreciated bird.
139. No, I don't have any in my yard.
140. Yet.
141. I was never really athletic or involved in team sports.
142. I've been through all the exercise crazes: aerobics a la Jane, step aerobics, Tae Bo, Kickboxing, Boot Camp.
143. Somewhere around my 36th year I became a runner.
144. It has been a lifestyle change.
145. It has changed me not only physically, but mentally too.
146. I'm not fast, but I'm steady.
147. Running challenges me in many, many ways.
148. But I absolutely love it.
149. I let my subscription to Creating Keepsakes expire, but I renewed Runner's World.
150. It's never too late to change your life.

Whew! You made it through another set of tidbits, can you believe it? The final 50 is on the horizon.


  1. i love it! you totally need to put flamingos in your yard. :)

  2. I laughed so hard when you said your spiral perm resembled a shrub. I just love you, Holly - you crack me up. And I love reading all these - I can totally hear that marching band! Na na na na na -HEY!

  3. Love the lists!! You were pretty racy to go with the off-white bra-zeer!!

  4. I love your lists! I'm not a neat freak either, but I can't stand dishes in my sink, my bed must be made and I'm waging a losing battle with my kitchen counters: they attract paper clutter no matter what I do!

  5. I love b&w movies too--especially Roman Holiday. sigh. Great List!

  6. I, too, regret the whole spiral perm business.

    I, too, twitch when the children touch anything in the clean kitchen.

    And yes, I laughed out loud at the grandmother and the white underwear bit. Way to go all hoochie on her with your beige undies. Naughty. :-)

  7. I'm with you on being a neat freak but not really. And wow, a beige bra! You go girl!

    I love to run too. Maybe I should try Runners World.

  8. I am loving your lists! You are an inspiration, I would love to be a runner, something I've always dreamed of doing, I just can't seem to get out there and get started.
    And when my kitchen is clean..we eat out because I don't want to mess it up!
    I'm glad to have found your blog, thanks for the comment on mine!

  9. Holly....
    yet another list of similarities! I hate my sink to full of dirty FIESTA dishes! Spiral perm? Been there. Breaking my foot? Done that. Send me an email when you can, Pink Christmas has given me the gift of a great blog to read! Thanks!

  10. I love your list!! I've learned so much! I want you to know ::being serious here:: you've seriously changed how I feel about myself. Since reading your blog, i've gone to the gym, and started running again. I really appreciate you and your enthusiasm...YOU ARE GREAT!!!
    Seriously love love love your list!

    PS: I also now appreciate flamingos!

  11. VERY interesting.....I love it. I loved the stacking color FIESTA dishes in your cabinet!

  12. I lvoe old movies too. Have you ever seen How to Marry a Millionaire? It is one of my favorites. It was fun to learn more about you.

  13. I meant to say love. I hate how you can't edit your own posts.

  14. I love that you run. I love to exercise and WANT to run, but can't seem to be able to figure out how to do it without kids with me without waking up at 5am which I refuse to do.

  15. Tami: Thank you for your kind words! Big hooray for you getting back to the gym--that's great!! Sometimes getting started IS the hardest thing, once you do though it does get easier.

    Megan: I love Marilyn movies too! My favorite though would be Some Like it Hot--love Jack Lemmon.

    Holly: Yes, it's tough finding time without the littles, I'm sure around your baby's schedule especially. I was NEVER a morning person, I was a big night owl--and sometimes fall out of the habit still---but I do try to get my runs done in the AM before she's up. I feel better the rest of the day too. This week though I've been a slug. :(

  16. I love that it that you aren't struggling with so many tidbits! #150 is particularly awesome!

  17. Also, do you have any photos of you with the shrub look?


I'd love to hear what you have to say. I try to reply to comments and answer questions within each post so be sure to check back from time to time. Thanks for visiting!
