I read all 100 things about you! I have to say you are one of the neatest, nicest most genuine people I have ever met!!
You forgot to list a few things:
101. You always have the CUTEST clothes!
102. You always have cute hair!!

Carin this was a cute post! I am glad I got to learn a little bit more about you!

I had no idea we had so much in common. I LOVE shopping too and am an organizing freak ; )

Ryan Reeder said...

Well, I enjoyed reading that. Mom may not have answered (or noticed you called) because of a pre-wedding family party for Trevor and Adrienne, FYI.

#34: I always thought that was because of your affinity for Punky Brewster. Or are you telling me you were really into the Sex Pistols when you were six?

#57: Does that have anything to do with the really scary video that the smoke alarm salesman guy showed us that one time? You would have been really little--and impressionable. I wonder if you even remember that.

I can vouch for most of the others (not that I ever doubted you).

#37: Yeah, trick-or-treating was fun with you. (Wait until you check which one I'm referring to).

Maybe a couple more for fun:

Like a lot of kids, there was one movie that you found that you watched over and over (and over and over) when you were little. Yours was Cinderella.

To the best of my knowledge, the first television show you ever saw was an episode of Scooby-Doo.

You had a pole in your room with about 50 stuffed animals and other plush toys. Maybe more.

When I was about 12, and I couldn't get Chad or Daniel to play a board game with me, you were willing. Even though you were only 4.

There was an '80s McDonald's commercial that reminded me of you--"Little sister...I was ten and you were two...and you grew and you grew and you grew and you grew...little sister...McDonald's and you." Because I was ten when you were two, about the same time that commercial came out.

You have always been a wonderful sister and a terrific person, and I really appreciate and admire the woman you've become. I love you, Carin! Thank you so much for being my sister and for being the marvelous person that you are.

(Oh, also, you cry easily).

(Made you laugh).

(I hope).

WOW..we DO have a lot in common, I felt like I was reading my own post for about 99% of that. We want to visit Virgina, we should just plan it while you still live there so you can show us around :)

p.s. I corrected my misspelling of your name, sorry about. After all that thinking I just couldn't think any more.
