100 Things About Me - Installment #6

Carrie, mom to two super cute kiddos, at Martin Manor Happenings tagged me. I'm supposed to list 7 things about myself and pass this tag on to 7 others.

There are some rules with this tag:
I need to link to the person that tagged me.
I need to share 7 things people may not know about me.
I need to tag 7 people to share 7 things and link to them.
I need to let them know they've been tagged.

Since I've been slowly working on my 100 things about me list and I'm a bit overdue, I thought I'd combine it with this tag. That means that I'll be sharing 10 things about me in the next section of this post...

And here are my 7 tagees, bloggers that I've started reading rather recently and would like to get to know better:

Wibeche at Beautiful Days
Kirsty at Just Us
Orah at Momma's Happy Hour
Tanya at Maya and Odessa
The Emery's
The Johnson 5 at The Johnson Family Tales!
Michelle at Truly Blessed

I enjoy reading bloggers' 100-things-about-me posts. However, by the 32nd thing I usually have forgotten who's blog I'm reading. (Who am I kidding? By #11 I've forgotten!)
I thought it might be fun to try and write one but in the interest of anybody-who-might-actually-read-its sanity I was thoughtful enough to break up the list. In 10 easy installments you can learn everything you ever wanted to know, didn't want to know and could careless about regarding me.

I think it's customary to do this list as your 100th post. My 10th and last installment will be my 100th post (if I can remember).

Here is the sixth installment (#51-#60):
51. I have petted a rhino on the Kenyan savanna.

52. I was in labor for 65 hours with Jack.

53. Luckily, Logan's labor was much shorter.

54. I had laser eye surgery several years ago...

55. And can't imagine my life without it.

56. I don't like the taste of coffee...

57. Or beer.

58. I wish I had more time (and more agreeable subjects) to study photography.

59. I totaled a moped on the island of Naxos and luckily walked away without any major injuries.

60. I have a horrible memory.

  3. You do have an interesting life my friend!!!

  4. I love this! What a great idea, I need to try it. But I don't know if I could come up with 100 things. I love the rhino one, how neat is that? Have a great weekend, Renee

  5. Those are great! 65 hour labor, you are a supermom! Maybe you should use #60 to forget #59 =) Great post, fun to learn these little things.

  6. Wow! 65 hours and i thought my 22 hours was rough. You win the supermom award:) Thank God Logan's was much shorter:) I used to have a great memory..until I had kids, now I have to write everything down, then I usually forget where I put the list. BAA Haa for real though.

  7. Yikes! 65 hours! So was logan's only 64 hours? LOL! These are great, and coming up with 100 things would be hard! Thanks for sharing! Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

  8. Thanks for the tag, I'll get it posted tomorrow.

  9. Hey Carey!
