    So hysterical! Giddy you are back!

  2. March 23, 2011 4:33 pm

    Love it!!

    So freaking glad you’re back. 🙂

  3. March 24, 2011 8:57 pm

    I love this list! We have about a gazillion things in common (see #87)! I’m jealous of your marriage but I think the reason I’m so so so single is because I expect an SO to be a best friend and just haven’t clicked with anyone that way yet.
    I eat at least 3 or 4 bowls of cereal a day, big bowls, that I refill numerous times first at breakfast and then afternoon snacking and then late night snacking :X
    I’m a professional worrier, and I do that list thing too!
    I think we could have really good conversations about politics and books, but unfortunately I could care less about football. I hope you still love me!

  4. March 25, 2011 7:12 pm

    I am SO happy you are back! I really have missed you!
    I LOVED this list. I am selfish too, and a brat…and I frequently get called both..especially by my mom! 🙂 Oh and I overuse exclamation points too!!

  5. March 26, 2011 5:05 pm

    I didn’t know you had a new blog…hooray! Double hooray for putting #25 out there. Agree 100%!

    Glad you’re back!

  7. March 30, 2011 1:45 pm

    I’m pretty sure that at least half of those apply to me!! Love it!!

  8. March 30, 2011 8:49 pm

    I used to read your other blog as a non-blogger!! So so glad to see that you are back! You are too funny! And I think we may have way too many things in common!
    Katie : )

    • March 31, 2011 8:46 am

      Thanks Katie! I am glad you started blogging! 🙂

  9. April 1, 2011 11:50 am

    This was so fun to read. #25…completely agree!

    You and your husband seem like soul mates. I know people don’t believe in that kind of stuff but to know each other your whole lives, be 11 years apart, and then get married? Crazy. Love it. I think my hubby is my soulmate too, but we didn’t meet til we were 21.

  10. April 1, 2011 6:41 pm

    I can’t believe you’ve known your husband your whole life – I love that. My husband and I met when we were 19, started dating at age 20 and got married at 22! I always enjoy hearing about other people’s stories.

    So glad you’re back – I remember when you stopped the other blog last summer. I had quit a blog at that same time also! Looks like we’re both back in action – and with different focuses!

  11. April 5, 2011 11:04 pm

    You’re back! Yah!!
    I have to confess to #23 and #95 – and can’t believe there is another blogger besides me with those qualities! Everyone blogging seems so darn creative and off the cuff!

  12. April 6, 2011 3:21 pm

    Haha this is awesome! (Oh, and totally agree with number 25!). I’m glad your back (not sure why I didn’t find you earlier, but hey, I’m here now!)

  13. April 7, 2011 12:43 pm

    Glad we were “introduced” through The Athlete’s Plate posting today! I love this listing of 100! Hope you checked out my blog and entered my giveaway, too! It ends today!

  14. April 7, 2011 2:31 pm

    After reading this I cannot believe HOW MUCH we have in common! So cool 🙂
    Like 9 hrs. of football on Sunday, love of cereal, best friends with the hubby (well, my almost hubby 🙂 ), overuse of exclamation points!, favorite store is Old Navy, your beliefs on baths- ew!, and many many more! Again, I’m SO glad you are back 😀

    • April 7, 2011 2:51 pm

      Thanks Holly!! I am excited to read all your wedding fun coming up! Woo hoo!

  15. April 13, 2011 1:51 pm

    Number 25 cracked me up and I agree with you! Actually a lot of them cracked me up!
    I also sleep with a stuffed animal called “Doggy.” We are awesomely creative with our naming skills.

    • April 13, 2011 5:18 pm

      Haha! Yeah….let’s just hope we do better if we have children!

  16. April 17, 2011 8:02 pm

    YAY KELLY! I’m glad you are back. I hope that your finger is feeling better (even though it “looks like ass”.)

    • April 19, 2011 4:46 pm

      Anne!!! I need to come see how the wedding planning is going…it is this month right??

  17. April 18, 2011 7:11 pm

    love love love this about me section! It was fun to read and made me want to read more. i just stumbled on your blog. Bookmarking it now 🙂 Looking forward to reading more!

  18. April 21, 2011 11:34 am

    I love everything about this list. Im so glad you are blogging again!

  19. April 28, 2011 10:18 am

    I’m glad you are blogging again Kelly!

    I too loved Felicity and felt like a part of me disappeared when they took it off the air. Yes, I realize I am dramatic!!

  20. May 7, 2011 6:12 pm

    Hi Kelly! Thank you so much for commenting on my blog because I was able to find yours!
    I just read why you decided to stop blogging a bit ago and can completely understand becoming absorbed into the world and stop thinking about other, rather important parts of life.
    I am glad you are back though, and loved this list of “about me!” I hope your finger eventually looks less like ass, but if not, that’s totally fine too
    I completely agree with you on number 47, Titanic is fantastic and my other favorite is The Lion King
    #25 is something I agree with as well. It’s one of the reasons I started my own blog where I talk openly about my personal issues around food and exercise. Why should I be in denial about something that is such a huge, negative part of my life? I should not of course, and I am healing from this disastrous relationship with food
    I can’t wait to continuing to read your blog!

    • May 7, 2011 6:22 pm

      Wow Tessa! Thanks for actually going back and reading my old blog and learning more about why I quit writing that one. I appreciate that so much! I will definitely keep reading yours because I think you are a special lady with a lot of insight. 🙂

  21. May 10, 2011 11:51 am

    Kelly – I read through your list and so many of your points applied to me too! I loved loved loved (and still love) Felicity. I’m a total JJ Abram dork now too and will give almost anything he does a chance. I just turned 30 myself (well almost a year ago) and it’s not as bad as it sounds. I kinda like it cause now I feel more like an adult.

    We’re big Colts fan at my house too… don’t tell hubby but Peyton Manning is a total hottie… Can’t wait for football season!

  22. May 23, 2011 3:17 pm

    I love your list! We have a lot in common! The most important involving my excitement in having another die hard Indy/Peyton fan in the state!

    GO BLUE!

  23. June 10, 2011 3:15 pm

    You rock girl! We have a lot in common:) Except I unfortunately have seen A LOT of snow!

  24. June 10, 2011 5:48 pm

  26. July 7, 2011 5:05 pm

    You are HILARIOUS! SO many of these apply to me too 🙂 Don’t worry quirks are often the best parts! Except I love cats and love baths. The key is to shower, clean the tub, then bathe…I’m slightly OCD.

  27. July 19, 2011 8:57 pm

    WAIT, how did you know your husband your whole life?!?!?! We’re your parents friends?!?!

    • December 22, 2011 10:43 am

      Yup! Our parents were friends and therefore I have known Keith forever! Lucky me! 😉

  28. August 6, 2011 8:02 pm

    Okay, I just found your blog and am now convinced we could be BFF’s. Ha!! We have a lot of the same interests!! So looking forward to following your blog now. 🙂

  29. October 13, 2011 5:09 pm

    This is too funny! I can totally relate to so many of these, especially #28.”I can (and do) spend 9 hours watching football on Sundays. Don’t ask me to do anything for you on a Sunday. I won’t.” 🙂

  31. November 9, 2011 9:03 am

    Um, how did I not know that Felicity is also your favorite show?! ❤

    • November 9, 2011 10:52 am

      Oh yes! I love Felicity. I have all the seasons on DVD and frequently (to my husband’s horror) have Felicity marathons on the weekends.

  32. November 9, 2011 3:59 pm

    I just found your blog and I love it. I relate to so much of this!
    My parents got divorced when I was in my 20s. I overuse exclamations! Clutter loves me too : ) Get ready quick, hate baking, love cooking, etc etc. Love this list. Adding you to my reader!

  35. August 20, 2012 7:23 am

    Hi Kelly! I found your blog through Instagram and love it already! Based on your list, we have a lot of things in common. I’ve caused quite a few fender benders as well – oops! And I make lists like my life depends on it. I look forward to following along. 🙂

    I am really inspired together with your writing skills and also with the layout to your
    blog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself?
    Anyway keep up the excellent high quality
    writing, it is rare to look a great blog like this one

  39. July 24, 2014 5:06 am

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I
    found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year
    old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off
    topic but I had to tell someone!

  40. August 16, 2015 3:11 pm
