About Me...

Here it is folks. Post number three hundred.

(Don't forget to enter the celebratory giveaway by Gussy that ends Wednesday)

So for my three hundredth post I thought I would share a few little known Ashley facts with you. I'm not really all that fascinating but normally when someone reaches one hundred posts they do a one hundred things about them. I didn't do that at one hundred or two hundred. Now don't go worrying your pretty little head, I'm not going to bore you with one hundred details all about me. Just a here we go.

  1. Wow! Congratulations on your 300th post. It will be quite some time before I reach that milestone (I only started in February). Interesting facts about you...I don't like driving over bridges either, love to read, hate to clean, and used to have big boobs (hated it). For my 50th b-day, I had reduction surgery. Best thing I ever did for myself. :-)

  2. Congratulations on 300!!

    I'm amazed: my list could be *identical* except for getting married in Vegas, turning 30, and liking to exercise. And the one about the Llamas and the macaw (though if you knew my family, well, it might be six of one, half dozen etc etc).

    ...and of course I'd need to swap out Weiland for Spock. The old one, but when he was young.

    That was really fun reading all that about you; can't wait for 400!

  3. What is an African Grey?

    Great list!

  4. Makes me even more secure in my choice of a bloggy bff. You rock Ash, CONGRATS on 300 posts!

  5. Nice to know you better. Blogging and coffee are both addictions!

  6. My husband's family owns a grocery store- in a town of 400 , don't you mean the grocery store?! ;) Fun facts!

  7. Janie B- Thanks! I can totally see a reduction in my future.

    Susan- :)

    Lindy- a type of parrot.

    Michelle- Much love and thanks babe!

    TOM- I know but I feel so old!

    FFOD- But good addictions!

    Gina- Totally. I should have put that. I'm a little late on the draw sometimes.

  8. I loved that post!! We have a lot in common.


Now play nice and for every comment you leave, I'll buy you a pony.
