100 Things about me: (well, how about 50?)

5. I eat too much cheese- way to much
6. I also eat too many sweets
7. My favorite flower is the rose, but all flowers make me happy

9. I'm very close to my mama and we love shopping the antique mall together
10. I enjoy scrapbooking
11. I would like to try collage art
12. I'm shy, but not nearly as shy as I was when I was younger
13. I don't like talking on the phone
14. I sometimes think I miss my 20s, but then I realize I was confused, immature and didn't know who I was- that's not worth having my pre-baby body back!
15. Old men who walk around whistling songs to themselves make me smile
16. Old ladies with red lipstick and too much rouge make me smile
17. I don't cook, but I want to learn

23. I'd love to live where it snows in the winter
24. I'm not athletic and I'm not at all interested in sports
25. I'd like to learn to be a great photographer
26. I love God (this list, by the way, is NOT in order of importance!)
27. Even the smell of coconut makes me sick
28. I'm not addicted to tea or coffee, but chocolate milk is another story
29. I love vintage children's toys and books
30. I loved shoes with a passion till my feet grew to size 11 by age 11 and it became too difficult to find cute shoes in my size
31. I love the outdoors, but I'm a hotel person, not a camper
32. One of my dreams is to travel to France, Italy, and England
33. I enjoy watching Spongebob
34. I love decorating and decorating books
35. I love cottage/shabby chic/vintage/seaside style
36. Nobody tagged me to do this list, I just felt the need to talk all about myself! :)
37. I don't leave the house without makeup
38. I'm addicted to
39. I dye my hair blonde (well, it used to be natural!) ;)
40. I won't swim in any water that I cannot see through ( I did when I was little and cannot stand wondering what is brushing against my feet under the water! :0
41. I think clowns are evil and creepy
42. I want to own my own house and paint every room a different , yet tasteful, color
43. My first car was a 1974 cream colored Mercedes- how I miss that car, except for it's lack of a working air conditioner
41. I don't have a favorite movie, but I love romantic comedies and action comedies best
42. I enjoy the internet and I'm thankful for all the lovely people I have met here

45. I believe fairy tales do come true and there is a happily ever after, if you help them along and work hard to keep it
46. I love animals, but have no pets
47. I love pretty much all types of music, but classical is what inspires me the most
48. I'm 32 and feel like I'm finally getting to know my true self and what I enjoy and want from my life
49. I have scoliosis (curvature of the spine- I think if I didn't I would probably be a full 6' tall! That would be awesome!)
50. When I was a teenager my big aspiration in life was to be a supermodel! :P That one was quite embarassing to admit!
If anyone actually made it all the way to the end of this, thanks for reading! :) I may finish the 100 someday, but for now 50 seems like plenty. A girl has to keep an air of mystery about her, right? I can't let out ALL my secrets at once!

Oh -- your blog is beautiful! Eye candy galore! And I love your 50 things about you -- without being tagged to do it! Thank you for visiting my blog-your comments absolutely made my day. I think we have quite a bit in common and wished we lived closer so we could have a collage "play date". You know with the collages -- jump right in, the water is not only fine -- it's clear! Talk to you soon -- and as soon as I figure out how to add the "link" section on my page I'd love to add you!
