That was a fabulous list! You would not believe that you and I are so much alike. I would have to say that 3/4 of this list would match up with mine! If I had one. :)

Glad to know you better!

Allison said...

I knew we were kindred spirits.

It's always fun reading about other people's fun facts! I too have been watching OLTL forever. Great show! Thanks for the neat list :)

Allie said...

That is a great list!

"I value my friends but you wouldn't know it because I never call them"

Oh, man! That is so me!

Allison said...

LongTime: I will watch OLTL forever.

Allie: Yes, I love all my friends but they always tell me they have to get a hold of me. I try to tell they can just read my blog to catch up. Ha ha.

Chile said...

Hm, #36... Just because you like it doesn't mean you're drinkin' it, right?! ;-)

Allison said...

Chile-You caught me. For your next challenge I will pick something I know I can give up during PMS. Ha ha. I do plan on giving up all soda, actually my goal is anything in a can or bottle but that may take me a while. Old habits die hard.

Liv Healthy said...

What a wonderful gift... sharing your life with the world!

My neighbour once asked me how she could get her kids to stop drinking soda pop. I told her, it's easy- don't buy it! A year later, she was juicing- anything is possible- you just need to stop trying and start doing:)

I have confidence that you can stop drinking anything from a can or bottle (maybe you already have, I didn't check the date of this post- if you have- Hooray!!)

Allison said...

liv healthy- no, I am failing at that operation "no cans or bottles" but I am trying. It will be a VERY hard goal to reach.
Thank you for reading and stopping by.
