My 100th post Bloggaversary!

It's HERE! It's my 100th post or as I like to call it my blogiversary (you know like blogging anniversary)! So I thought long and hard about what to do for this... do I give something away? Well that would require me to buy something & I'm broke! Should I do that 100 things about me thing that so many people do? Well, that could get real boring real fast and the last thing I want to do is bore you guys! So what did I decide you ask? Well I came up with a 2 part 100 post! So for part 1 I wish I could take credit for this brilliant idea, but Rebecca Kelsey at Miss Random Bliss suggested this and it was love at first sight read! She said "maybe you should post a list of your favorite top 10 entries, then top 10 readers, top 10 commenters, etc etc until you reach 100. Because one big 100 list could get boring. Split it up into 10 lists of 10 favorites!" What a great idea! Thanks, Rebecca! So let's start with my top 10 favorite posts:

  1. Fake Conversation With a Real Person
  2. WWWAT- Beginnings & Endings
  3. Words of Wisdom
  4. I Have Officially Crossed Over
  5. Happy Endings or Not So Much?
  6. Shopping Experiences
  7. Moral Window
  8. How Do You Really Feel?
  9. Extreme Makeover: Sorority House Edition
  10. New Plan (My Scholarship Essay)
Now for my Top 10 Commenters: (there's a thingy on the sidebar that tells you this but I wanted to give them a special shout out anyway) These are some of my best bloggy friends & I so appreciate their comments :) *Edit: I don't know what I was smoking thinking when I wrote these, but if you look at the sidebar they are completely different! The numbers are messed up, and there a couple new people added! So ignore the order & the number of comments... and shout out to Cammie and Heidi who have made the list since then!*
  1. Krystyn (31 Comments!)
  2. Jen E (27 comments)
  3. Megan (21 comments)
  4. The Broken Man (19 comments)

Top 10 things I love about blogging:
  1. I have a lot of feelings, and this is a way to express those feelings, and put them into words. It's very therapeutic.
  2. I love "meeting" new people. That's one of the best parts about this bloggy world- you meet new people, and you bond over your likes, dislikes, etc!
  3. Comments, duh! Comments are so fun, and people can be so nice. I love love it when new people come over, and leave comments like "I love your blog" or "You're so funny" <--- I never hear that in real life!
  4. The community aspect of it! I love that we are like our own bloggy community! We can rally when someone needs our support, like Heather, or Amy and we have our own bloggy parties, like Aud's Dinner parties, and the amazing SITS community! It's like being in an exclusive club!
  5. It's the easiest way to keep my family updated about school and stuff so I don't have to send out like 100 e-mails a day being like "this is what happened today... blah blah blah" lol
  6. I love to write! I hate writing papers ironically because I hate when people tell me to write something specific... here I can just write whatever I feel like & whenever I want!
  7. It's a total ego booster... like I said on #3, people say some of the nicest things! It makes me feel so good even when one new person comes to my blog and says they enjoy it!
  8. Awards! I love getting awards! It makes my day, seriously! And I love being able to give them out and making someone else's day :)
  9. It's like free entertainment! You guys are hilarious and it makes it so much fun to read your blogs! It's all free, and I can do it anywhere, anytime!
  10. All of the above :) ok, so I cheated get over it !
Top 10 blogs I want to give a shout-out to (ok I wish I could shout out to all of you, but that would be way too hard, so forgive me if I don't mention you!)
  1. Cammie- Even though we keep finding reasons to "break up" you're awesome & I'm glad you haven't given up on us yet! hehe
  2. Susan- Not only is she my twitter buddy, but her blog is freaking funny!
  3. Elaine A.- Because again she is another awesome twitter buddy, and she is hosting the food swap which is totally cool!
  4. Laural a.k.a. Mamasphere- She is too funny & too sweet & her blog is awesome!
  5. Melanie- My food swap partner has a really great blog & I'm so excited to swap food with her :)
  6. Mandy- she is a new bloggy friend, but her blog is really funny & she's awesome!
  7. Beth- Another new bloggy friend I found thru SITS. She is so funny & totally cool!
  8. Rachel- She wants to live vicariously through me which makes me feel like I have such a cool life! lol Plus her blog totally cracks me up!
  9. Janah- She has an awesome blog & she has the funniest story of how she got her blog name!
  10. Heidi- She's just awesome I feel like I'm saying the same things about everyone but really she's super cool & super funny!!
Moving on... Hope you're not bored yet! 10 Random Facts About Me:
  1. I am extremely sensitive to smell- I hate the smell of bubble gum, I don't like the smell of cleaning products, I am just super sensitive to all smells & it drives me crazy sometimes!
  2. I am a facebook addict. I am on like seriously all the time. It is sad. I wouldn't be so addicted if it weren't for facebook chat, but I have a constant need to know who is online & if I'm missing out on some potentially amazing conversation.
  3. I watch way too much TV. I could probably name like 50 shows I watch religiously. Ok maybe not that many but you know what I mean!
  4. I'm not a morning person at all. I hate mornings, but I am such a "night owl" (I hate that term). I am usually up 'till at least 1 AM most nights, and usually much later. Even if I'm not doing anything, it's just a habit to stay up late.
  5. I say "lol" way too much! Especially if I don't know what to say I just say lol & I usually say it before every sentence even if nothing is funny! Sometimes I substitute lol for haha
  6. I use exclamation points way too much too. Especially in comments I always feel like I put way too many exclamation points. I just don't know how else to show my enthusiasm when typing!
  7. I hate when you're having a conversation with someone texting or IM or something, and you say something & they respond with only "lol" or "ok". Ugh it is such a pet peeve! How are you supposed to carry on a conversation after that!?
  8. You know how guys say they often find girls more attractive in sweats & a t-shirt? Well I think the same is true for guys, I am really attracted to guys when they are just wearing athletic sweats or something. Then again, it is really hot when they get all spiffed up in suits & a tie & everything! So I guess its a toss up!
  9. I have the worst sweet tooth... I love sweets! Anything sweet... you name, and I'm sure I love it!
  10. Joining my sorority is the greatest decision I ever made! My college experience would never be the same without it. I am so thankful for it.
10 blog stories that touched me: (There are so many amazing stories out there, I just wanted to take the time to point them out. They really put things in perspective.)
  1. MckMama & Stellan's Miracle
  2. Amy & Phillip
  3. Matt, Liz & Madeline
  4. Heather
  5. Bring the Rain
  6. Carolee's story

  8. Hannah Garman
  9. String of Pearls

Top 10 Funniest Keywords That Lead to my Blog: (I can't figure out why this looks weird.. sorry!)
  1. "(but you don't understand, osgood. uh, i'm a man.) well, nobody's perfect!"- yeah I have no idea what they were searching for!

  2. "take a breather, lebron"- lol! I love this quote it's from my HSM3 Review!'

  3. "bigoldie women.com"- This seems to be a reoccurring theme, people looking for old women & getting to my blog... I'm not sure what to think of that... I'm also not sure I want to know what this website would look like if it existed!

  4. "girl not texting back"- sounds like a personal problem, maybe she doesn't want to talk to you! My blog has nothing to do with this though... unless you count the fact that this girl won't text me back anymore!

  5. "i had a party last night sorry you couldn't come your boyfriend did twice icon"- LOL!!! I know this is bad... but it cracks me up!

  6. "i`a not a girl wets a woman"- wow talk about a typo...

  7. "lil wayne running for 2012 election"- lol this is coming from my election facebook status' post I'm sure, but I love that people think Lil' Wayne should run for president! He does have lyrics "Fuck em, fuck em, fuck em Lil Wayne for President!"- maybe that's his intent to run announcement? lol

  8. "pretty girl blog?"- Thank you, google for sending them to my site! I am flattered :)

  9. "usc dental fraternity halloween party 2008 photos"- Well, I don't go to USC, so I was definitely not at that party... so I am not sure my blog was much help.

  10. "worlds record for bestess singing"- hmm I can't say that I know that... also I think you should work on your grammar because "bestess" is not a word!

10 of my Favorite TV Shows: (in no particular order)
  1. Private Practice
  2. One Tree Hill
  3. Gossip Girl
  4. Grey's Anatomy
  5. Lipstick Jungle
  6. Desperate Housewives
  7. Brothers & Sisters
  8. Privileged
  9. Starter Wife
  10. Friends (I love the re-runs!)
10 of my Favorite Quotes:
  1. "No boy is worth crying over. And the one who is, won't make you cry."
  2. "Love the people who treat you right, forget about the ones who don't, and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said that it'd be easy, they just promised it'd be worth it."
  3. "People can take everything away from you... but they can never take your truth. The question is: can you handle mine?"- Britney Spears, My Prerogative
  4. "true friends & true hearts that's all that counts in life" -uptown girls
  5. "all girls really want is someone to want them back"- one tree hill
  6. "The elephants get drunk all the time. It is becoming really dangerous. We need to stop making alcohol available to them," Paris Hilton about Indian elephants.
  7. "Whoever said orange was the new pink was seriously disturbed" - Legally Blonde<33
  8. You have three choices in life - give up, give in, or give it your all.
  9. "Life isn't the number of breaths you take, it's the moments that take your breath away."
  10. "Some of the best things in life are unseen. That's why we close our eyes when we kiss, cry, pray, and dream."
And finally for my last list, I'm giving those of you who tweet! So I have compiled the (in my opinion) funniest tweets from the past week maybe a little less! Top 10 funniest recent tweets:
  1. @HappyHourSue Borders dude said they were out of the free Twilight posters. So I threw my shoes at him
  2. @ShredderFeeder My wife said she was ordering an etiquette book for my eldest... I told her to make sure it was big enough to hit him with or it won't work.
  3. @TheDailyBlonde Hiding from the kids. They r dancing to the Jonas Bros. Oh NO! :)
  4. @themomjen According to my 7 year old....being Clausterphobic is being afraid of Santa!
  5. @TheBookMamma I'm braving the unholy holiday hell that is Bridgestreet today. I've officially smoked way too much crack. Wish me luck
  6. @SteveOuch The malls are empty in Portland today, guess I get Santa all to myself. Find out what other operations he has going on in the "North Pole"
  7. @TheDailyBlonde Scored a great parking spot. Think I will try to sell it.
  8. @Ruensontherun Lots of people coming to my blog and not leaving comments...maybe they are looking for crack...guess it's disappointing
  9. @McMommyblog Someone helllllllllp meeeeeeee! My techy hubs decided to "re-do" our server yesterday. I have had no internet or email since then!!!!!
  10. @ElaineA It's not even 10 a.m. yet and the kids are driving me up the wall! Margarita anyone?? {just kidding...sorta...}
Well that concludes my series of top 10 lists... but I mentioned there would be 2 parts right? Here's where you come in! For my 100th post, my goal is to get 100 comments! That would be a record, and I need your help breaking it, bloggy friends! And while I appreciate Broken Man's efforts on my birthday post, 1 comment per person please! I want to get 100 separate comments :) I realize it's a big goal, but with your help we'll see if we can make it happen! I would love you forever :)
