Great list. Congrats on 100 posts!

Just read your germ-post, I had no idea. Has the Dr. Phil show aired? Must have if Spanky was 8 weeks old... How's that going?

Your movie selections crack me up ... Casablanca, Sound of Music, FIGHT CLUB? What a contrast?

Here's to the next 100!

Interesting on the foods. I don't have any of those. Shows you are a cook. Love your stores. And, Salzburg - did you take the SoM tour? It was amazing. I love du Maurier, too. Congrats on the milestone.

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

I must have fresh pineapple--bad, bad carbon footprint though!

John Irving is one of my favorite authors and A Prayer for Owen Meany one of my favorite books.

Congrats on getting to 100!

Brian and Staci said...

Wow! What great lists! I wouldn't know if it were my 10th or 100th post??!! Much less try to come up with 10 things on each list!!?? You are amazing! LOVE Wizard of Oz...and can you BELIEVE my kids have not seen it yet?! How terrible is that?! I've tried, mind you...it's always rented when I do remember to rent it! Guess I'd better just buy it!!

You were on the Dr Phil show.

You have a great blogpage. Hope to read more.

Hey, this was fun to read! I agreed with so many of them, too. Congrats on 100! I love dropping by here...keep it up!

Momo Fali said...

Cleveland before Columbus? No!!! It can't be. I guess I'll let it slide since you have Etta James on your list.

Jennifer H said...

I love hearing someone say they love Cleveland. It's a great city, and we've seriously thought about moving there. (I still secretly wish we were...)

Great lists, all of them!

Congratulations on your 100th post!

auds at barking mad said...

Congrats on the 100th post! It's an awesome feeling isn't it! I love your lists. I was thinking of doing something like that for my 500th post for the new blog (150+ posts to go) but I don't know if I can wait that long. Can I pinch this from you?

Oh and I wish Sunday would hurry up already! I'm dying to read your next installment.

The White House said...

What a great post! I really enjoyed reading through your lists (and making my own!) How old are your four kiddos?

Jen said...

What a fun way to do a 100th post. I just did mine a few weeks ago and it was so hard to think of 100 random things. I like the lists all organized like this. I love the movie "Elf". We watch it every year around the holidays.

McMommy said...

Can I just tell you how much I love Fight Club too?! And a Christmas Story?!

I really loved these 10 lists...i feel like I know you even better now!

Tiffany said...

What a fun idea to do your 100th post - I blew past mine and didn't celebrate it! Thanks for stopping by, by the way.

Great movie list - definitely some that I need to see!

CC said...

Great lists! Happy 100!
