Happy 3rd Birthday, Classy & Fabulous!!

I can't believe it's true, but it IS! This here old blog is three years old today. I would link back to my first post but then I would die. Ok, fine. It's here.

I had been reading blogs for well over a year at this point and stalking and obsessing about how cool these people were who bared their souls for the internet. And then I wanted to do it too.

Three years later I could NOT be more thrilled with all the fun and wonderful people I've met around here. With the exception of the pub*c hair troll (see the comments) on my post a year ago... everyone is super nice and fun and I just love all the people I've 'met.' (Side note: why did I not keep that red bikini?! It was cute!) (Side note: there were 52 comments on that post. My most recent "big" post had 22 comments. The smartphone has killed comments? Or I've just gotten more boring.)

So, because I have undoubtedly changed in 3 years, I am going to update the '100 Things' post I wrote on my blog's first birthday.

And if you make it to the bottom of this post... I like giving away presents. Just sayin. Updates to any items on the list are in red.

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."
  2. I have been dating my boyfriend, C, for over 5 years. I love him so much he makes me crazy. I'm on a man vacation. Hopefully not permanent.
  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. Truth!
  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. Hoosiers are cool, I don't know why I gotta be so negative.
  8. I wear a size 7.5 shoe. In flip-flops I like to wear a 7 because I like them to be tight. I actually wear an 8 now. Retail has spread my feet.
  9. I have a hard time picking a favorite color - I love pink, deep red, and many shades of blue. Still don't have a favorite!
  10. My current favorite colors for clothing are: heather gray, cobalt blue, and that really cool purple color. Yep, still true!
  11. My favorite flip flops ever were a pair of gold beaded foam flip flops from Target. These were the best sandals. I miss them!
  12. My favorite brand of makeup is Clinique - they make the best concealers and foundations. Eh, I still like Clinique but my skin has gotten worse so I'm not in love anymore. It's a bit too natural.
  13. My favorite kind of blush is Nars Orgasm - it looks exactly like a natural flush on my cheeks. Still using it daily!
  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. Still sad.
  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. I'm a big girl in the real world, kinda.
  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. No more tests in the real world!
  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! MMMM BAKED GOODS!
  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.
  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. Yay for moving onto a big girl camera this past year!
  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)... yeah, it's gonna be awhile, kid.
  32. We moved into my family's current home on my 8th birthday. Best birthday present ever. I've moved twice since that house. I still miss it!
  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. CHEESE!
  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. I've cut back on ice cream. I miss it.
  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. I hate it now! Too exhausting.
  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. Still my favorite, although I'm really loving Gap hiphuggers right now.
  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. Uh oh, my old age must be showing because I don't really obsess about having a full face of makeup on anymore. I went out in public yesterday with nothing on and a face full of zits. Nice gift in my 24th year!
  56. For some reason I enjoy throwing things on the floor instead of putting them away. This drives me crazy. Ahhh you should see my bedroom right now. Will I ever learn?
  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. No coffee still!
  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!! You finished! Way to NOT drop out, kid!
  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. I stopped reading magazines. Weird, but true. I'd rather tweet. Eep, that's the truth.
  67. I like to go commando when possible. Who are you, girl?! Put on some underwear. Actually, I think maybe I was saying that when I lounge at the end of the day I often strip off all my clothes, including undies, and put on sweats. Which is still true. So no commando in public, though... geesh
  68. My favorite TV show is Grey's Anatomy, followed by Desperate Housewives and Lipstick Jungle. Oh how I miss Lipstick Jungle. Current favorites are Grey's Anatomy, Into the Wild, and Real Housewives of Anywhere...
  69. I sleep naked when I can. Heh, still true.
  70. I can do a cartwheel and a round-off, but I never mastered the back-handspring. It's been probably over a year since I've tried.
  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. STORY OF MY LIFE!
  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.) Oh, Sarah, you NEVER CHANGE!
  77. Most of my clothing (bras, underwear, shirts, pants) are line-dried on drying racks. I love a good drying rack. I need a new one, actually... I still have the same ones from when I wrote this post...
  78. I have seen most episodes of the TLC's A Baby Story. I have forgotten/stopped watching this show. Sad.
  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. Still true!
  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. I still want to become a bra designer, but I've found Calvin Klein. Nothing comes between me and my Calvins.
  84. I heart Heidi Klum. I think she's amazingly beautiful and so much fun. I love Project Runway because she's the host! Is that show still on? Maybe in the fall?? See also this photo from a couple weeks ago.
  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. Mmmmmm.
  88. I love to wake up in the morning and bake biscuits (and then eat them smothererd in butter). Ha I still do that!
  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! Sarah, lay off the carbs/neon worms and exercise. It's only going to get worse.
  92. I enjoy quiz shows, like Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy. Mostly, I just want to tell people how smart I am. Oh hey, you're obnoxious.
  93. Also, I have a hard time admitting I'm wrong. Mostly because I think I'm always right. Moving On. Heh, hence your now ex-boyfriend.
  94. I love jewelry, but I rarely wear it. I mostly wear a ring on my right hand and a pair of earrings. Done. Ohh I love to buy sparkly things now and have quite a collection... not sure if I wear all that much of it, though.
  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. Ohh, I've found so many awesome books since then. I still love that book though.
  97. My favorite TV show is Grey's Anatomy, followed by Desperate Housewives and Lipstick Jungle. Hah, I repeated a fact. I can't even proofread well!
  98. I consider People.com a valid form of news. It's the only website I check every single day without fail. Yep.
  99. I like to drive. Designated driver, backseat driver, whatever. I like my control. Sue me.
  100. I am a very light sleeper. 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.
Considering I wrote that 2 years ago today (AHH!), I think most of it is news to a lot of you. I hope I didn't bore you too much!

As a THANK YOU to all of you for hanging around for my daily-ish thoughts, I'm giving somebody a $50 gift card to Target!

All you gotta do is leave a comment. Ask a question, tell me how alike (or different) we are and why... I just wanna hear from YOU!

Please leave your e-mail address if you don't have it set up so I can reply to your comments.

Giveaway closes next Monday. Good luck!

...just another preppy shopaholic said...

Congrats on 3 years! Great list, I'm also a light sleeper! Count me in, thanks!

Can't believe this is also my 3rd year blogging too! Although my blog anniversary isn't until later this Summer ..good times!

Daisy said...

Love jewelry = rarely wear it (other than the few everyday pieces).

Congrats on the 3 years!

R said...

Way to go on keeping it up 3 years running. I think I somehow hit that mark and forgot to mention it. At least you're not as forgetful as me!


MissMarried said...

I love this list, and congrats on three years!

You and I are very alike with #98: "I consider People.com a valid form of news. It's the only website I check every single day without fail. Yep."

I love People.com and definitely check it daily!

Midwest Elle said...

Happy 3rd Blogiversary!!

I think we are A LOT alike! I also hope that neither of us are on a permanent boy vacation. And I also think that you look a lot like the girl on The City. I cannot remember her name right now and feel like an idiot. The main girl umm?? Well ya, You look a lot like her in the photo of you in front of the Heidi Klum photo!

Becky said...

I give you a random tidbit about myself:

When I order a large iced coffee at Starbucks, I cannot handle it when I am given the big straw. It's too tall for the cup!

I excel at the random. Fun post! :)

stephanie said...

I love that you went back and updated the list so cute! And I'm the driver too- mostly because my husband can't stand my backseat driving!

Jess said...

I don't think I have ever commented (mainly because I am not a blogger myself) but I have been reading your blog for a long time and really enjoy it. You seem very real and sweet. I'm a bit older than you and lost my mom around the same time so I can relate...

Anyway happy blogiversary!

PinkSass said...

Happy 3 years! I'm so happy you started your blog.


Sarah said...

I always have to have my fingernails painted!! What is your favorite polish brand/color?

the girl in the red shoes said...

Oh Sarah this post cracked me up! You are too cute. And happy 3 years!

Katie said...

Happy 3rd Birthday! I love these lists - so fun! I can't believe it's been almost 3 years since I wrote mine: http://katiediane.wordpress.com/2008/08/29/100-random-things/

We Hoosier girls are alike in a lot of ways! I'm a starter, not a finisher. I love shopping (especially for good deals!) and I ALWAYS have my nails painted! Also, I just upgraded to a "big girl camera" a few months ago, and I'm still trying to figure out how it works...

Mrs. Smith said...

I too have never smoked and love any movie with Julia Roberts. She's just never fails.

Aly said...

Happy 3rd Birthday! There are too many things that we have in common- love for ice cream, shopping, chick flicks, weddings, grocery shopping...the list goes on! Have a great day!

Courtney said...

Love this post! And carbs are like my best friend ;) HAHA!

Terri T said...

happy 3 yrs!

Um the whole makeup thing? Yeah, I've only worn it three times in the past year. Even then, it was only mascara :)

jennmcsorley said...

Three years already? Where on earth has the time gone? Congrats Sarah, that's quite a feat!

I love you fashion sense! I was wondering if you could have a once a week post using polyvore to put a few outfits together. It would be awesome! :)

the rigdons said...

we are quite similar... i think we should be friends. :)

Happy bloggiversary! That's so great that you have three years to look back on. My how things change!

Em said...

Happy 3 years! I also have a neon worm weakness!


Jessica said...

Way to go on three years in the blog world.

I would say we have a few things in common. I also love Heidi Klum, photogrpahy, being a girlie girl, entertainment news, and TAKLKING a lot.

We differ in quite a few ways though... I love coffee and have a few cups each morning to get going, have actually socially smoked a cig (yuck), never attended catholic school, and can't stand sour neon worms (or anything gummy for that matter)!

Fun post! Thanks for the chance to win a target card. Who doesn't love Target?

Krystal said...

Holy giveaway! ;) You're being quite generous. I loved your answers but I'm wondering... still never been to a "real" concert?!

MFS said...

I look for new posts in my google reader every morning and it's a funny distraction in my work morning! I like cream nail polish, eating in bed and I miss lipstick jungle too! I have a 32 size bra as well and I just go to nordstrom. it's a small fortune but they're good bras! I like gummy bears instead of neon worms though! Keep up the fun posts!

Jodie said...

Happy 3rd Blogiversary!!

You and I are very ALIKE in so many ways!! But with #26: I am a shopaholic and I love shop around and compare prices on different outfits that I am looking for!!

I love your blog!! You always make me smile!! Have a wonderful day!!


Sara Lang said...

Happy 3rd birthday!

What type of makeup do you use now that you don't use Clinique?

Little Miss Can't Be Wrong said...

happy happy birthday!!
and what a great giveaway!
i totally hate birds too. they creeeeeeep me out. i'm positive they're out to get me, all of hte time!

BelleinBows said...

Happy 3rd birthday to your blog!!! Have you checked out VS for a red suit?!

Abby said...

What a nice giveaway! I love that you use a drying rack, way to be environmentally friendly ;)

KatiePerk said...

I also am a naturally pale faced gal. Ugh. BUt I do love that Nars blush too! And I am sad to hear about your pointy toe leopard shoes passing. Sad Sad Day.
Fun comparison.

The Shabby Princess said...

Ladybug, you are too cute. Here are some fun facts about me that are very similar to you: I have double jointed elbows and didn't realize it until I was in college. It FREAKS people out. I broke one of those double jointed elbows doing a back handspring when I was 18 and haven't attempted one since. Julia Roberts can do no wrong. And sour neon worms are the bomb.com

Love you!

ern said...

6pm.com, the #1 thing I have discovered from reading you blog, omg, best site ever!!!!!!

CT Cupcake said...

happy 3 years! love this post, esp since I wasn't blogging/reading blogs when you did the 1st edition.
I love breakfast foods and will eat them anytime of day, partly b/c while I love to grocery shop, i hate to cook. except I would bake sweets everyday if I could!

Holly said...

Three years - dang girl! Keep it up! I wear my sunglasses as a headband all. the. time. Even when it's raining. So guilty!

Krista said...

I think you might just surpass your "most comments on a blog post" record with this one :) I've been reading your blog for about 2 years and it's been fun watching you transition from college-age to real-life... ahh, those college days were the best! :)

Sarahviz said...

Holy cow, I've "known" you 3 years??? I heart you, you know that. Blog friends ARE real!

Sarah said...

Congrats on 3 years! :) I love reading your blog everday! We are alike in most ways :)

Tanner's Mom said...

Love how you handled that anonymous comment. I have been reading your blog for quite a while and remember that post.
Question- Have you gotten close to any other guy since your big break-up?
I think we are some what alike and different. I lost my dad to cancer at an early age and you lost your mom.

Amber @ A Little Pink in the Cornfields said...

Happy birthday, Classy and Fabulous! :) I have been blogging for three years now too, although I took quite a few long breaks in those three years!

k.thomas said...

Wow, 3 years is a long time! Crazy!

Grey's anatomy is my favorite show too :) and I used to love Lipstick Jungle!

Candace said...

Congrats on the 3 years! I wear NARS orgasm every day as well and lots of it because I too am pale. Mom calls it porcelain, I call it pasty. Ha ha. Also I love neon sour worms. Actually I love anything gummy and now I want some. Ha ha.

Sara said...

Happy bloggy birthday! Three years is quite an accomplishment!

Sara said...

Congratulations and Happy Bloggaversary (not sure if that is a word!). I found your blog in the past few months and have loved reading it. I also loved Lipstick Jungle and I miss it. Now I'm addicted to anything on Bravo...Top Chef, any and all Housewives, Rachel Zoe, Bethenny...I want Andy Cohen to be my BFF.

Kori said...

Happy Blogiversary honey! I hope you're having a fabulous Tuesday honey! I posted twice today, so hopefully you can stop by! Kori xoxo


Marc Johnson said...

Happy anniversary! I just wanted to say that I love your baking recipes and that I'm stealing your "man vacation" saying. Although I'm changing that to "woman vacation."

Mrs. Jones said...

Wow! I can't believe it's been three years. That is awesome. Happy 3rd bday to the blog! I have never smoked anything either, so we're alike like that! :-) I also adored Lipstick Jungle. I think it should come back. Have a great day!!!

katie@tulsadetails said...

Happy three year blog birthday!! Clearly we both have a love if Target!!!

Sweet Simplicity said...

Happy 3rd Birthday, Classy and Fabulous! I was just thinking about Lipstick Jungle the other and wondering if I could netflix it.
I also have a love for jewelry, but have to remind myself to wear it.

Meg said...

Aww, happy blogoversary, Sarah -- that's awesome! Like you, I read blogs for a while before starting my own -- and then realized what a vast, vast place the blogging community is.

I was originally introduced to you by Jessica, my Philadelphia buddy who now blogs at Cover to Cover, and love your musings on life and fun posts! You always inspire me to online shop at work, though... so, you know. I guess I should be a little mad at you for that, too.

But I'm totally not. :)

Now go have some ice cream to celebrate your accomplishments -- you deserve it!

Jennifer said...

I have never smoked a thing before either and I love me some sour candy too.
Happy 3 years!!

Thomasina said...

It was great reading this post! I never watched Lipstick Jungle, but I just finished the book last week and I loved it {def read it if you haven't}. Happy 3rd birthday girl!

Jackie said...

Well we have lots of things in common, but my favorite is that we both moved into houses on our birthdays! My parents still live in the house and I thought I was SO special when we moved in. I told all my friends the house was my birthday present from my parents. Spoiled much? Hahaha.

Jennie said...

We are alike in that we both like tarjay and forever 21 and other girly girl places to shop for clothes...I think your closet may be more full that mine though! ;) And we are different in that I am married and expecting my first baby...but I hope I can still remain young at heart forever!

youcancallmeflower said...

We are alike in the fact that we both still live with parents. I was about to say I am in my late 20's but I JUST turned 30- eek and I still live at home. Not that I wasn't out on my own, I guess I'm a boomerang kid. I love love love Target as well!

Denim and Pearls said...

Congratulations on your 3rd blogday! I miss Lipstick Jungle. Or rather Andrew McCarthy sweeping Lindsay Price off her feet. And Brooke Shields.

Anonymous said...

It's good to know I'm not the only one who mourns the loss of a good pair of flip flops. RIP brown & turquoise Reefs, purchased in 2000 at Typhoon Lagoon at Walt Disney World. I pink puffy heart loved you and can't find you anymore, sadface.

Kim said...

i love reading your blog.

I also have always wanted a sister and love clipping coupons. I feel lame when I am cutting them but feel awesome when i see how much i save:)

California Wife said...

Oh, I love it, I just learned so much more about you! I also HATE birds!!!!

Michelle said...

Happy 3rd bloggy birthday!

I nearly spit cake everywhere when I read your commando comment. I know what you mean, though.

And, weird, but I had a kamikaze goldfish when I was little, too. I found mine under a table. Yuck.

Oh, and I like leftovers for breakfast, too. My husband thinks I'm weird because I'd rather reheat pizza instead of eating eggs & toast. To each his own, I say!

Naturally Caffeinated Family said...

Happy 3 years!! You make me laugh :) and number 36 cracked me up, I know it's sad, but your commentary is so funny ;).

Jennifer said...

It was a good idea to go back to your list. It's like atime capsule in list form. I feel your acne pain. I've also had a clear face but for the past 5 months i've been getting the worst pimples and i'm 25!!! bahhh

Happy 3rd Birthday!

melissa said...

Happy 3 year blog-iversary!

#91 and #92 - I'm with ya. I'll unbutton jeans an chance I get. And Jeopardy is my favorite. I yell out the answers even when I watch alone.

Rebecca said...

Happy blogiversary! I just realized that you started this blog on the very same day that I met my fiance!! We met three years ago today! Now... 80 days until the big day! I'll always remember your blogiversary from here on out! CHEERS!

Rosalita said...

Love reading your blog, and you'd be surprised how old I am! Yet I can relate to so much of what you write about. I started my blog earlier this year, partly because you and several others inspired me to try-- it's scary putting yourself out there. For me it's a way of holding myself accountable. Thanks, and congratulations on 3 years!

Jason said...

Happy Blog Birthday!

Melanee said...

congratulations! what a great giveaway and i'm all over it!

the workaholic momma said...

YAY for 3 years!!! I just started my blog..but I also stalked for about a year before joining in the fun - hopefully I'm still doing this 3 years from now:)

Janna M. said...

I feel like we have a ton in common! I too am a blog stalker-- I don't have my own yet but I still feel like I'm in the blog community because I follow so many great blogs including your's! Also, I'm an Indiana native too!! :)

KLC said...

yayyyy happy 3 years!

Lauren said...

Giiiirrllll, you know where we're alike..... Harry's Law, DUH?!?!?!? HAHA!!!! LOL! Happy bloggy anniversary :)

Love your blog and I'm always a fan of "about me" random lists! I'm also on a man vacation after some long relationships...still not sure how I feel about it.

Happy 3rd Birthday Classy and Fabulous!

Danielle said...

3 years is awesome!!

I check People.com daily, too. Sometimes maybe twice a day. I'm a bit obsessed.

Short, Sweet, and Petite said...

Congratulations on the blogversary! :)

I honestly wish I could wake up early enough to bake biscuits (or literally anything for that matter) just like you, but usually cereal will suffice. Props to you!

abi said...

Congrats! I enjoy your blog and fashion posts - thanks!

Megan said...

Congratulations girl! It will be my Blog's 3rd birthday in June..can not believe it :)

~Haley~ said...

Congrats on 3 years... We have like nothing in common, but I still love reading your blog! :) I enjoyed this list, too!

Shae said...

Congrats on making it three years! Love the blog! After blog stalking for a few months, I finally started my own. Hope I can make it to three years!

Leigh said...

Congratulations on three years! That's awesome! I have never liked coffee either...just can't do the taste!

Jessica @ Acting Adult said...

Happy blog birthday! I just love reading your crazy blog. :) It makes me smile every time I do!

Smiles, Jess said...

Happy Blog Birthday! I am a newish reader but I enjoy each post! Two of the most embarassing things make us simliar. 1~Commando at home (it's just more comfy) 2~Unbuttoning my pants while driving/sitting for a while
Eh, everyone has a quirk!

Kate said...

haha I'm scared of birds too! Congrats on 3 years!

Michelle said...

Happy anniversary!

I can relate to a lot of what you said, but what's so terrible about going commando? I don't recall why I started doing this years ago (probably to avoid lines in something when I didn't have a pair that would do the trick), but now I hate wearing underwear. Unless the situation is particularly excessive down there, what is the big deal? I find it more comfortable to go without. My SO loves it, and I save on underwear. Win win! I guess I'm in the extreme minority. Oh well!

D'Rae said...

Congrats on your 3 years!

I too am in Indiana....

Kristen said...

I just found your blog a few weeks ago, this is my first time commenting :)
I just had to say that if #102 had been about an irrational fear of spiders that causes you to overreact at the very sight of one, we might just be twins! Right down to the uneven ear problem.

ps.. LOVE your fashion sense!

Sara said...

Yay! Happy blogaversary! Congrats! I'm just catching up on my Google Reader after a rough week at work, so I apologize for being a few days late. And of course, we're much more alike than different - I'm a Sara (without an h), a clothes lover, a wine lover, a wannabe baker extraordinaire! Love your blog!

emily said...

congrats on three years and thanks for the entertainment! i am proud that we both share that weve never smoked a cigarette! it is just too gross!! =) thanks for a great giveaway!

Cajun Cowgirl said...

Great post! You love lists it seems! Me too! Happy blogging!

LawGirl said...

I relate to how much you miss your favorite leopard print shoes. I have a pair of shoes that I refuse to stop wearing, I know they don't look that great but they're just the best ever!

Great giveaway!

Krystal said...

I'm from Indiana but went to college in Kentucky and now live in Illinois (where I decided to go back to school to be a nurse!) I went to 8 years of Catholic school and also love jewelry but don't wear it nearly enough!! Congrats on 3 years!

All Things Cherish said...

Happy 3 successful years! This is not specific to this post but I totally can relate to you w. the tiny, baby hairs. I have them too, all over! They're SO annoying and no hair product slicks them down, haha!

Sundresses and Smiles said...

congrats! i just read all of your 100 facts and laughed quite a bit! wish me luck!

Tiffany and the Munchkins said...

Congrats on 3 years! I too love to wear sunglasses on my head like a headband. I thought I was the only one! So glad to know I'm not alone. :)

Kelly B said...

Just started reading your blog recently. After reading your list we have so much in common! Congrats on 3 years!

Perpetual Blind Date said...

Congratulations on 3 years! I've been going for 3 months and just want to make it for a year! - Alyssa

THE Stephanie said...

Ha! Honestly, I'm just impressed that you came up 100 things!! Every time I see someone do this I always think I would get to about 9 and be done. LOL.

I love reading them though. Happy 3 years!

Tillie said...

happy 3rd birthday ;)

I love your blog!! Love the 100 things too!

Kat said...

I clip coupons too! It's so fun. Also addicted to Target.

Happy 3 years!

erin said...

I love shopping just like you, but I don't shop nearly as much nowadays as I did when I was younger! Unfortunately I'm paying off the credit card debt I accumulated in my younger days. I have also discovered couponing and now I RARELY buy anything that's not on sale or without a coupon! I have a coupon binder that I take to the grocery store and I'm NOT embarrassed by it one bit!

Miss A said...

I am in the exact same boat about the blonde hair... Platinum as a kid, gross blonde-brown as an "adult"... So now it's dyed to match what I had as a kid!
Love the blog, and congrats on 3 years!

Abby said...

Happy 3rd!!! Love the Blog!!!!

christie said...

Love your blog! Happy 3rd!
I am also addicted to Target! And I LOVE coupons!!

Anonymous said...

What a great giveaway, girl!! And Congrats :) If I were to write an autobiography, it would be titled...well, I would never finish it because I am GREAT at starting things and AWFUL at finishing them!!! Gosh, how can we change that?!?! Haha


S.L.M. said...

If I go a week without hitting up Target, I get withdrawals!

Kristen said...

Amber Rose said...

Congrats on 3 years!
Your blog is so cute, I wish I could get as motivated to write on mine as you!
And us Hoosiers do rock! Just not the actual 'Hoosiers'. Go Purdue. :)

punkinmama said...

Dang, comments come out of the woodwork when Target is on the line!

So glad this bloggy/twitter world introduced me to you!

Daisy said...

Happy 3 years! I stumbled upon your blog a year ago when I was thinking of naming my own blog "classy and fabulous." I tried to "hate" you for stealing my idea but, I couldn't help but like you. Your posts always make me smile/laugh and I have purchased quite a few good sale items as a result of your reviews!

Side note: I finally started my own blog a few days ago. Feel free to stop by and check it out.
