better late than never

i finally finished my 50 list...i do not think its perfect...but it's finished. i've missed updating so much. i really need to get a jump on this internet thing...very fun weekend, i'll possibly share stories later this week.

here goes...

i have a problem beginning this list, because i can't figure out what #1 should be, because it seems like it should be a big one, or does the list go from least to greatest....

50 things about me

50. i press snooze at least once, sometimes twice every morning. i NEVER just get out of bed.

49. when people laugh at what i say i feel like i've just been paid a wonderful compliment

48. my all time favorite movie is dirty dancing and my all time favorite line is when baby tells johnny, "Me? I'm scared of everything, i'm scared of what i saw, of what i did, of who i am...and most of all i'm scared of walking out of this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life the way i feel when i'm with you!"

47. i subscribe to glamour, lucky & cottage living magazines.

46. one of my favorite things to do is take a shower right before i go to bed, but i don't do it very often so it never looses it appeal.

45. if i could have dinner with anyone dead or alive i'd pick audrey hepburn, sarah jessica parker, britney spears, katie couric and kate spade...we'd have a damn good time!

44. when i put lotion on my hands i rub it in and then wipe it off.

3. when my brother was born my Pop woke me up and asked me if i wanted to go see him and i said, "No, let's just go eat pancakes."

2. i love telling stories...not lies, actual happenings, so if you ever want to listen, i'd love to share.

1. i'm a terrible time estimater, so i'm ALWAYS a few mintues late. i will literally be late to my own wedding, because i won't be able to estimate the appropriate amount of time.

as much as i love lists...i'm terribly indecisive about what to's taken me two weeks to finish this one! hope you enjoyed.
