Congrats on 100 posts! I enjoyed your list. I taught first grade for one year and second grade (at different schools) for two years.
I like to do Sudoku puzzles sometimes. I don't wear much jewelry either.

First of all, I want to say ROLLLLLL TIDE!! :D

I found you over at Mom of 2 Dancers and saw that you were a fellow Alabamian (actually the same area) and thought I'd come over and say hello!!!

Are you excited about NKOTB coming back? ;)
