You ALL have asthma, good Gawd that stinks.

This was fun Toni - I hope you got it done in an hour or less! Right? Right? :)

Your in-laws suck. At least you've got a keeper in their son.

Green eyes - that's cool because you just don't really see green eyes that often! I don't drink alchol that often either - but I do love frozen drinks of any kind. This was a cool list of 100 things! I just passed my 100 post too - we could be twins. Congrats on your anniversary! Take care. kellan

Number 87? So me.. so so me.

I put Ug's undies in my drawer and my bras in his... that was just today.
He thought it was fully to parade around with it acting like it was really a sling shot. Yeah... he's 10 or so...

Wow, what a great list. I love Moscato too. That really sucks about your in-laws. Their loss, I say. Leaving the remote in the fridge made me laugh out loud.

We're like...twins!!
I have green eyes. NOT hazel. If you link back you can see somehow you put green w/hazel (dad) & get Brown??? I can't stand my in-laws either. My FILs family flat out told my hub not to marry me. I hate Wal-mart. I love to shop & am irresponsible with money. And, I am a lousy cleaner.

Oh, and I have a cousin that is Toni Lynn. Not Antonia or anything else. And, she's so Italian, her hub's brother is also Tony, so she has to go by Toni Lynn these days.
