50 Things To Know About Me

I am always trying to come up with ideas of what I can post on my blog. I tend to always do the same things. So, I came across this as an idea. I have compiled a list of things about me.

that was awesome! Maybe I will do that too....but I'm pretty much an open book so I would probably have nothing new to report.

I love those lists! I did 100 things for Parker for his first birthday, but haven't done one for myself. I loved learning so much about you!

Bridgette J said...

Grandma Hand said...

What a wonderful blog. It is so fun to read about the things that you have done and I am so happy that you love being a "mom". This is such a great way to keep in touch.

SuAnn McFadden said...

I don't remember you ever giving a perm to one of your friends. Did that really happen? Just so you know, I can't make my mom's potato salad either. She just has the touch. But it seriously is the best. I think I am going to do this just to see if I can come up with 100 things about me.

Hey, Megan!!!1 It's me, Lynette Packer-Nordgren! I found your blog on the Hunter Reunion website (I hope that was okay...). I feel bad that I haven't kept in touch with you better, which is why I'm so excited to see you at the reunion!!!

It was fun to learn more about you. What a great idea! I don't have a blog, but that is definitely something I want to do in my journal. :)

Anyway, see you in a week!
