100 Things You Wish You Knew... and Now You Do

Sarah, Happy 100th Post!!
Well, Happy 100th post to you too!!

In honor of this momentous occasion, I will share 100 things about me.
Just so you know.

  1. My name is Sarah Marie "Fabulousness." Last name changed to protect my fabulousness.
  2. I have been dating my boyfriend, C, for over 5 years. I love him so much he makes me crazy.
  3. My birthday is October 14th - the same day as Dwight D. Eisenhower and e.e. Cummings.
  4. I have one sibling - a younger brother, Andrew.
  5. As a child, I had naturally bright blonde hair. Today, I have naturally lovely dirty dishwater blonde blonde highlighted hair.
  6. I have brown eyes, but if you ask many of my friends and family, they would answer that I have blue eyes. Must be the blonde hair thing. Tricky, tricky.
  7. I have always lived in Indiana. Yes, I know I'm a hick.
  8. I wear a size 7.5 shoe. In flip-flops I like to wear a 7 because I like them to be tight.
  9. I have a hard time picking a favorite color - I love pink, deep red, and many shades of blue.
  10. My current favorite colors for clothing are: heather gray, cobalt blue, and that really cool purple color.
  11. My favorite flip flops ever were a pair of gold beaded foam flip flops from Target.
  12. My favorite brand of makeup is Clinique - they make the best concealers and foundations.
  13. My favorite kind of blush is Nars Orgasm - it looks exactly like a natural flush on my cheeks.
  14. I tend to over-apply blush because I have a somewhat-pasty face.
  15. My favorite pair of shoes ever was a pair of leopard-print pointy-toed heels I got in high school. They died during my freshman year in college and I cried about it. I will never forget those shoes, may they RIP.
  16. I have always wanted to have a sister.
  17. I have always wanted to have a dog, but I am a bit allergic to them.
  18. I am really allergic to cats - they make me feel like I'm asthmatic and can't breathe. And they make my eyes turn all kinds of red.
  19. I am entering my senior year at Saint Mary's College - an all women's Catholic private college. This is so not where I pictured myself going to school.
  20. I am an extremely fast test taker. If I had $5 for every time a teacher or professor told me to take my time on a test or exam, I'd be wealthy beyond my wildest dreams. Ok, maybe not, but still - they all say it.
  21. I am much more intelligent than I (or other people, for that matter) realize. I just pick things up and they stick - for whatever reason. If only I could remember people's names.
  22. I am bad at remembering people's names. Horrible. So if you walk up to me and I stare and smile at you... just remember - I'm trying to think of your name. Better yet, feel free to re-introduce yourself. I'll love you forever if you do...
  23. I have never had really short hair. I have, however, had a perm. It wasn't a good time for me - I didn't understand how to style it.
  24. I love to bake things - cookies, cakes, YUM!
  25. I have my ears pierced twice - but I only wear earrings in the first hole. The second hole works though!!
  26. I love shopping. I could happily shop for hours most days. I think the reason I love shopping so much is because I like to get a good deal on things - so I shop around and compare prices.
  27. I clip coupons from the Sunday newspaper. Then I use them. I know it's old-ladyish, but you can save a lot of money using coupons. I do.
  28. I love purses but I almost always use the same one. Boring.
  29. I have gone through at least 4 digital cameras in the past 8 years. It's not that they break or stop working - I just want to upgrade to a newer camera with more features.
  30. I love weddings. Love the ugly bridesmaids dresses, love the dumb favors, love the same old reception songs... LOVE LOVE LOVE.
  31. I already have my dream wedding all planned out. We'll see if it happens (or when)...
  32. We moved into my family's current home on my 8th birthday. Best birthday present ever.
  33. My brother and I are really really bendy and flexible (ie we can bend our joints very far)- the doctors thing it is some creepy combination of my parents' genes. I have "double jointed" knees.
  34. I loved the fifth grade. It was the best one, in my opinion.
  35. I am, in general, a very photogenic person and enjoy having my picture taken. Any model scouts out there? No?? Okay, moving on.
  36. My only pet was a goldfish named Goldie. She committed suicide one night by jumping out of her bowl on the dining room table and drying up on the floor. Ew.
  37. My mom's side of the family is Czechoslovakian, and my dad's is German.
  38. I love ice cream and eat it almost every single day.
  39. I have always thought that I have rather ugly and chunky hands. Very mannish.
  40. I enjoy grocery shopping - probably because of the coupons.
  41. I dislike talking on the phone - I just can't understand what people are saying. Very annoying.
  42. I have always wanted to be a dolphin trainer and work at Sea World.
  43. My favorite style/type of underwear are Body by Victoria hiphuggers. I might have to write a Friday Favorite about them.
  44. I have never learned to play a musical instrument because my parents didn't believe in forcing me, and I sure as heck wasn't gonna make myself. I do know how to play a couple of songs on the piano - with my right hand only. I can play Jingle Bells with both hands though!!
  45. I have no athletic talent and no coordination.
  46. I have always wanted to be a cross between Kelly Ripa and Oprah.
  47. I like to eat leftovers for breakfast. I will heat up pasta from the night before and smother it in butter. Yum, breakfast!
  48. I also enjoy all manner of waffles and pancakes.
  49. I have a big scar on my left knee where I fell on a rock when I was little.
  50. I have had stitches one time - in my chin. I fell during daycare and busted my chin on the metal edging in the gym while playing on these scooter boards.
  51. I tend to get a lot of bumps and bruises because I never pay attention to what I'm doing.
  52. I was baptized as a Catholic and went to church every Sunday until I went to college. I still go when I’m with family, but I also like to take a ‘vacation’ from church when I can.
  53. I don't like wearing tennis shoes (or sneakers or whatever you call them) because they make my feet feel claustrophobic.
  54. I have a love/hate relationship with procrastination. Sometimes I wait until the very end, other times I'm obsessively organized.
  55. I like to wear makeup. In fact, I really don't like to leave home without it - especially if I know I'm going to run into people I know.
  56. For some reason I enjoy throwing things on the floor instead of putting them away. This drives me crazy.
  57. I love having painted nails - fingers and toes.
  58. I've never really fallen in love with coffee - we shall see if I ever do.
  59. I can't wait to be a mother.
  60. I love to take pictures. Being a photographer is one of my dream jobs.
  61. I like to spend money. Period. This is also why I started babysitting at age 10.
  62. I am a girly-girl and I enjoy it.
  63. I love to talk (seriously - anytime, anywhere) but I am actually shy.
  64. Once I finish college, I will have attended 11 years of Catholic school - YIKES!!
  65. I have never been to a "real" concert.
  66. I have a mild obsession with Glamour magazine. For the past 5 years or so, I have ripped out at least one article per month and "save" them in a folder. Hopefully I'll have some use for them someday.
  67. I like to go commando when possible.
  68. My favorite TV show is Grey's Anatomy, followed by Desperate Housewives and Lipstick Jungle.
  69. I sleep naked when I can.
  70. I can do a cartwheel and a round-off, but I never mastered the back-handspring.
  71. I like to be helpful and often feel guilty if I can't help people out.
  72. I love chick-flicks.
  73. I had braces on my teeth when I was younger, but my teeth still aren't perfectly straight.
  74. I am good at starting things but bad at finishing them.
  75. In elementary school my teachers were constantly telling me to stop talking. It didn't matter if I was sitting by my friends or not, I was just always chatting to someone.
  76. I like putting laundry in the washing machine, but I hate drying it and folding it. (Wait, this isn't even unique or interesting, is it? Everybody hates folding/drying? Ok then.)
  77. Most of my clothing (bras, underwear, shirts, pants) are line-dried on drying racks. I love a good drying rack.
  78. I have seen most episodes of the TLC's A Baby Story.
  79. My ears are slightly crooked - sunglasses never sit straight on my head.
  80. Pretty Woman is one of my favorite movies.
  81. I prefer nail polish formulations that are creamy vs. sparkly ones. I have come to hate glittery and shimmery polishes - they're too hard to remove.
  82. Daisies are one of my favorite flowers.
  83. I have a hard time finding bras that fit. I need a 32 band size, which is really hard to find. I always spend a small fortune on bras, and then they don't even fit. All my friends tell me that I should become a bra designer and make ones that fit PERFECTLY.
  84. I heart Heidi Klum. I think she's amazingly beautiful and so much fun. I love Project Runway because she's the host!
  85. I have never smoked a cigarette (or anything else for that matter).
  86. I love wearing sunglasses on my head - like a headband.
  87. I love sour neon worms and could easily eat a bag of them per day.
  88. I love to wake up in the morning and bake biscuits (and then eat them smothererd in butter).
  89. I love almost any movie with Julia Roberts in it.
  90. I am afraid (in a big way) of birds. Hate them. You can read about my most recent (and history of) bird escapades here.
  91. I frequently unbutton my pants when I'm driving or whenever I have to sit uncomfortably. My stomach just wants to escape!
  92. I enjoy quiz shows, like Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy. Mostly, I just want to tell people how smart I am.
  93. Also, I have a hard time admitting I'm wrong. Mostly because I think I'm always right. Moving On.
  94. I love jewelry, but I rarely wear it. I mostly wear a ring on my right hand and a pair of earrings. Done.
  95. I have a naturally very pale face - it's much whiter than the rest of my body.
  96. My favorite book is Confessions of an Ex-Girlfriend by Lynda Curnyn. I haven't read it in a couple of years, but it's one book that I just can't bear to part with.
  97. My favorite TV show is Grey's Anatomy, followed by Desperate Housewives and Lipstick Jungle.
  98. I consider a valid form of news. It's the only website I check every single day without fail.
  99. I like to drive. Designated driver, backseat driver, whatever. I like my control. Sue me.
  100. I am a very light sleeper. When I was little, my parents could hardly perform their "tooth fairy" duties because of this. Numerous times they'd open my bedroom door and I'd say "what are you doing?" to have them reply "sorry, went into the wrong room." The point: don't try to break into my house at night or I will be forced to bust a move on your behind.
  101. When I started this list, I got to about #29 and thought - "This is it. Everything about me. I don't have anything left to say." Then I thought about it a bit more and the rest came waay too easily. So what am I hinting at here people? There is so much more about myself that I don't even know. My life is blank canvas and I can't wait to throw some paint on it.

So, Happy 100th post to me! I never thought this blog would become so important to me, but there you have it.

Did I leave anything out? Are you dying to hear about my most mortifying moment? Do you think there is still MORE to me than meets the eye?

Then go ahead and ASK! Promise I won't bite...much.
