    Lacey, I lost count of all the things that my answers are the same as yours! We’re more alike than I realized!! My 100 is a ways away but my mind is already spinning on what to include… Emelie

  2. Amber Says:

    I love the list! I learned some things about you. You should take the cake decorating classes at michaels or joanns. You’ll learn everything you need to know about cake decorating and from there you’ll just need to practice.

    Lacey,
    I hope you had as much fun reading my list as I had reading yours! I love that I have learned so much about you through your blog…I am sending happy thoughts to whoever invented the idea of blogging! 🙂
    You came up with some really fun stuff about yourself…I am totally with you on the “I love intelligent men”, “I love the scent of rain”, “I love being pregnant, and giving birth, and the whole surrogate mother thing” (sorry for the paraphrase). You are such a cool gal, I love getting to know more about you!
