66. I sleep eat alot and will wake up with food in the bed
67. My almost 16 month old daughter still hasn't hit 20 pounds yet.

69. I use to teach swimming lessons to the 1st graders at Lakes Elementary

72. I am very much an inside girl, I like going outside but it can't be too cold or too hot
73. All of our favorite shows piss me off now Hawg Quest, Jon and Kate Plus 8 because they have totally sold out for the money. Those poor kids, I really can't stand Kate, she cares more about money than her own children.

75. I get about 1 kidney stone a month since I was 16 years old..ouch
76. There is one room in my house that has 3 elk skulls and countless elk and deer sheds, even making a valance for the curtains. The Man Room...thank goodness our new house has a living room I can decorate.
77. I finally bought something I have always wanted; a big comfy chaise lounge chair to read my books in, and low and behold I got it at a garage sale for $20, and then I found a matching slip cover for the chair and ottoman (normally around $90) at Goodwill that matches my couch perfectly for $15 bucks. Did I tell you I love a good deal!!
78. I drink way too much pop...I am a Coke girl, and I really don't like Pepsi, but will drink it if there is nothing else.
79. I am the youngest of the immediate cousins on my mom's side. Hettie, Huynoo, Haydan, Jinny, Eugene, and Me.
80. We recently got in touch with Jeramy's half sister that he didn't know he had until he was 18 and hasn't talked to in a really long time. So all in all he has 4 half sisters and 2 half brothers. I am an only child.
81. At first my daughter totally looked like Jeramy, now people say she is a good mixture of both of us.
82. Sage got my darker complexion and Jeramy's Green/Blue/Hazel eyes..lucky girl
83. When I was in graduate school I had a teacher named Dr. Holman and it turned out that we were related...I told him I bet he didn't expect to be related to the Korean girl in the class and he laughed. He brought in our lineage and traced us back to Roscommon Ireland.
84. A girl accused me of cheating in college (which I didn't) and then years later she applied for a job at my company and during the interview I made her feel like an idiot, by asking impossible questions like "what is 3,465 x 5,354?"...Karma is sweet
85. Jeramy is the only one that can get Sage to sleep..did I mention she was a Daddy's girl? We love our videoo monitor with night vision that plugs into our TV so we can watch her
86. Sage's room is decorated in a Hawaiian theme because I love Hawaii so much. She loves Regge and Hawaiian music too.
87. Every wall in my house is white with a hint of yellow/brown, so I guess they are beige. I need to get the courage to paint some like my cousin Becky.
88. My first car was a BMW
89. I am a realist. I plan for every contingency, and I am VERY impatient
90. I am mean Mommy, while Daddy is the fun one...someone has to be the strict one and it sure isn't going to be Jeramy.
91. I love my husband's homemade macarroni and cheese.
92. I use to play the piano and the violin, and performed at the Washington Center for the Performing Arts.
93. I think I have 3 pairs of shoes that fit me, where as Sage has about 30 that fit her right now.
I would rather spend the money on her, so would her Grandma Sonia
94. If Sage were a boy, which we thought she was going to be, her name would have been Jack Lee after my grandpa and because everyone in Jeramy's family's first name starts with a J and their middle name is Lee. Lee is also Andreas's middle name and Marcus and Lucas' last name.
95. Even though I am obsessed with proof reading, ignore all the errors in this as I don't have the time to proof read it. If I could proof read for a living I would or do some type of reading ,I'd love it.
96. I have 3 undergraduate degrees from Saint Martin's College and my MBA from Saint Martin's University (Same school, they just switched to a university half way through) which is a Catholic School, where some of my teachers were monks from the monestary. My mom goes to church there every Sunday.
97. My favorite cereal is called O's
98. My favorite song is Anna Begins by the Counting Crows
99. My daughter and husband are the best thing that has ever happened to me and I love them with my entire being.
100. My highschool girlfriends and I get together at least once a month for "girls night" which now includes husbands and kids so that we stay in touch. One of the girls Kerry Mills and I have been friends since 4th grade.
Hope I didn't bore you too much, but now you know a little bit about me.

I swear this kid will never hit the 20 pound mark. Jeramy took her to the doctor the other day to try and get some slivers out that had been in her hand a couple of days and we weren't having any luck with...we tried everything, teething gel to numb, ice, epsom salt soak...and when they went to weigh her (with clothes, shoes and a jacket on mind you) she still only weighed 19 pounds..lol...at 15 months. She is busy running around all over the place now so I know she is burning off everything she eats (and she is a REALLY picky eater) and that most kids start to slow their weight gain around this time, but we have been waiting to turn her around in her car seat until she was a year and 20 pounds, but we finally did it anyways. But one thing that is growing fast is her hair. She has the Donald Trump doo now, as we are in the "in-between" stage of growing out her bangs, because I do not want to have to deal with bangs later. But it is growing in every direction, it makes me laugh because her and Jeramy have the same hair style in the morning, I call it mupet hair. Her attitude has certainly gotten bigger too, as she likes to tell me how it is, and reminding me that "I didn't do it", and she has gotten taller (she is wearing some 12-18 month stuff, but she is still in a size 4 diaper which is still kind of big). She also loves to do things that make people laugh, and totally hams up all of the attention.
We are constantly getting stopped now when we are out and about and asked how old she is because she looks like a 6 month old walking and talking around because of her size. I am just thankful she is doing everything so well so early despite the fact that she was a 3#11oz premie. Such a big miracle in such a little girl!
This is her sofa couch that my dad and I picked up at a garage sale that they have at their house, and she loves it and runs right to it. Although, I will not allow her to play with Bratz dolls when she is older, it is ok for now because she is so cute on there and she LOVES it, she lounges on it and watches her shows just like Grandpa!
