    Fantastic list!

    #55 is hilarious!!

  2. Welcome to Wherever You Are Says:

    LOL. That’s the excuse I use since I didn’t have any grey before I met Jess/had kids.

  3. I can’t believe how much we have in common!!!

    Like the site!

    So very funny and interesting, I look forward to reading more in the future!

    BTW: thanks for the computer again!!!!



  4. Alyson Says:

    Thanks for the comment. I’m glad someone is getting some use out of the computer.

  5. Red Says:

    You spank your kids. I love how you mentioned that. I hadnt seen that yet in a 100ThingsAboutMePost. Yay to you!

  6. alyson Says:

    Thanks. I think they need it occasionally.

  7. cowgalutah Says:

    OK you are being added to my blogroll. I’m so glad you stopped by my place and left a comment. I love your list especially 72 *87 * 95. But I have to say the minivan almost scared me off. Tee-hee. 😆

  8. alyson Says:

    LOL. I have to admit, I hate the minivan, but it was the obvious choice so we could all ride together when the stepkids were over. My next vehicle will be a car.

    I love your blog too, and am honored to be on your blogroll.

  9. cowgalutah Says:

    I’m a gas whore…SUV all the way! I know that’s bad hun. 😦

  10. Everybody kept telling me that I needed to get a minivan but I choose a SUV, 2 wks later the gas price went sky high and I sometimes regret not getting something a little more economically. I just don’t want to drive a mini-van, I think the are really nice…However, I think it has more to do with the “image” it represents. Stupid I know!!!
    I did tell the kids that we were going to get a new vehicle, and that I didn’t know what but that in the next couple of months I will be looking, but that it wouldn’t be a mini-van, that it would probably be a car. Of course, I would love to have a truck…lol….but I really need a car with REALLY good gas mileage, something that definitely gives me more than 16 miles to a gallon!!!!

  11. alyson Says:

    Minivans aren’t alot better than SUV’s in the gas dept. I get about 20 mpg. My mom has an Impala, and I LOVE it. Now that J has a truck our gas expense has definitely gone up.

  12. Paul B. Says:

    You have like the coolest avatar on the net..

    Only one speeding ticket? How did you get even that in a minivan? 😉 This is a great blog.

  13. Alyson Says:

    Thanks. Brian made it for me. It’s the Bon Jovi smirk, which looks alot like the koolaid man.

    I got the speeding ticket in my teeange years. In my much cooler Pontiac Sunbird! No tickets in the Minivan, yet.

  14. ashley Says:

    I definitely had to sit and count up my speeding tickets….3 (and I’m 20…) bad, I know.

  15. Lumpy Says:

    Your list is so wonderful. Very revealing; really lets you see what you are all about. I love, “I have 3 living grandparents” – how utterly fortunate for you and your family, what a rare blessing. and #55 is cute! I’m glad I stumbled here, terrific blog! I’m always amazed at these lists and how they mesh one bit of info into the other so seamlessly, mine is a work in progress and is very choppy. Maybe one day I’ll get it together like you did?!! Great!

  16. Alyson Says:

    Thank you so much. Glad you stopped by. I will definitely check yours out!

  17. Red Says:

    Been meaning to ask you .. have you been to the quilt museum down in Paducah? Ive been wanting to go, but didnt want to waste a trip for something that aint worth it, ya know. It’s not a LONG drive, but a drive nonetheless (like an hour). Kinda sorta figured you might have been there before. Or at least hoping so!

  18. Alyson Says:

    I haven’t (hangs head in shame). I hear it’s really nice though.

    I wouldn’t go during the Quilt show. It’s sometime around the first of April. It’s crazy. You can’t get a hotel within a 50 mile radius.

  19. Metal Misfit Says:

    TEN Bon Jovi concerts? Awesome! I’ve yet to seen ONE (although I’ve watched many of their live performances on TV).

    They’re near the top of my list of bands I wanna see live.

  20. Alyson Says:

    You should definitely see them live. They are great. Thanks for commenting.

  21. jenefur Says:

    Wow, we have a LOT in common as well!
    I’ve added you to my feed reader. 🙂

  22. Alyson Says:

    I love reading blogs from people, “like me”.
