    That was a great list! With all the walking and how fit you look I bet you do have a great bum!LOL!
    I thought you were a talented singer? I did know you got “mauied?” in Hawaii. I bet that was romantic!
    Thanks for sharing…I might do a 100 things about me list…the sad thing is I’ve done so many of these, I think that most people know it all!!

    Hey Laura, Congrats on your 100th post and getting me hooked. You have a great hubby, from the little I know of him and you have three great happy kids as well. You also have great parents whose house we are really enjoying lol. Way to go again. Keep up the good work girl. Sue H

    How wonderful to get to know you better! Congratulations on your 100th post!!

    I am slightly jealous that you are one of those people who can fall asleep easily (it takes me for.ev.er), but I guess I’ll let it go since you share my appreciation for chocolate and my lack of appreciation for housework. :)

    What a great list! That was awesome – however I noticed that you never said one thing about what great parents you have and what terrific siblings – maybe that will be on your 200th post!

    Oh this is fun! CONGRATULATIONS! I loved hearing all about you! I laughed about the dancing and silly dancing. And you don’t travel well? Does that mean you get carsick or you just hate traveling?

    Thanks for the Candyland reminder. Just before having children, we played it with friends, and boy was it never-ending! Whenever someone almost won, they got sent to a gooey candy swamp! We kept saying we couldn’t imagine little children playing without fighting, and wondered how we did. I’m going to get the game out & teach the boys! :>

    Ok wow Laura,

    I, too, am another Stephanie lurker who appreciates your organizing and recipe ideas.

    I must say, I don’t know what Ketchup chips are…are they a kind of potato chip?

    Oh, and let us know how you liked this week’s recipes. I’m curious about the chowder.

    Okay,I’ll crawl out of the woodwork and say hi to congratulate you on your 100th post! I somehow came across your blog a couple of weeks ago and love it (I have visited everyday since). I seriously did not think there was another person in this world that liked to purge and organize like I do! :) I totally relate with your blog. Hope you keep it up!!!

    Yo Yo BIG Sista! Love your list and your blog in general.
    Too everyone out there I can vouch for my sister, her list is true and acurate – hey I would even say Laura dances like Elaine on Seinfield, but that’s only when she’s dancing seriously.
    Love your anonymous brother…

    I thank you all for your comments. I really enjoyed them…they so made my day!!!!!! Except of course for the one that says I dance like Elaine…don’t believe it for a second!!!!! He’s just jealous of my moves…lol.

    Barb says:

    Congratulations on 100 posts. I’m sure you’ll reach 200 in no time.

    My husband and I would both tell you that our very favorite event when we watch the Olympics is the curling. And I’m a sucker for cooking magazines, too. Love them.

    This is a great list. It was really fun to read all this about you.

    The Flip Flop Mamma! says:

    Jennifer says:

    Awesome list!! I’m glad to know of your comedic powers as well. Unleash them on us someday. And you really are a Candadian, eh? Ketchup potato chips? Curling? That list was fun to read.

    Since you wish there were more pics of you, you should grace us all with a picture–put the face to the name and the organizing prowess.

    Katherine@Raising Five says:

    Congrats on your 100th post! Sheesh, has it been that long already? You are a busy bee! I think you should have put “I deal well with large omnivores invading my back yard.” What poise! Have a great day from a fellow lefty – I’m hoping that if I hang around you long enough, you will open up the side of my brain that controls the organizing function!

    Shalee says:

    100 already! Oh what a fun list. And there were many things on the list that I kept saying “Me too!”

    You and Susanne need to move to Kansas , so we can get into all sorts of trouble! (And so you can organize my life… come on, I’ll make it worth your while with all the biscuits and gravy, apple pie and games you could ever want.)

    Hey, it was worth a shot.

    I’m glad I checked through the responses — I was really hoping you did dance like Elaine. SO FUNNY! I have brothers too. They keep me young! :)
    P.S. I saw your Bookworm’s blog and mentioned some of my favorites from when I was her age.

    So this is your 100th post, nice! I had to laugh when I got to the last one that said you have a nice bum. :) My 21 month old calls his bottom a bum. :)

    Congratulations! I wasn’t paying attention and hadn’t been out in the blogging world long enough to know about this tradition so when I hit 100, I missed it! LOL Now, I’m at 240+ so I guess I’ll wait ’til 300?! *wink* Could I come up with (or would any one CARE) if I listed 300 things! LOL

    Kili @ Live Each Moment says:

    HAHAHA. I got stuck at #47 and #48. That cracks me up. My husband tells me the same thing. He’ll catch me organizing and say “I thought you were cleaning…” and I’ll tell him I am. He says I never like to clean, but I like to organize..

    Ok off to read your other 50…

  59. 59
    Kili @ Live Each Moment says:

    I also label everything, and I am TOO planned, and not spontaneous enough! I enjoyed reading your 100. It hink I need to do another 100th post on my blog!

    This is a great website.

    I am 7 months pregnant and I want to get my home organized before the baby arrives.
    Since I live in downtown Honolulu, I can only afford a 1-bedroom apartment. But I am determined to keep it organized and set an example that my child could follow.

    Hi! Just leaving a comment because you asked. You are very organized! Your blog puts me to shame. :) A friend mentioned you so I came over to check it out.

    I want to visit BC some day (random fact).

    We were missionaries in Africa and now live in West Texas…
    And I may try to organize my house this summer “with you” before school starts again. :( (sad for school).
    Thanks for blogging!

    Ok, so I may be a couple years late, but I just found your site and I LOVE IT! I’ve been reading it for two days! : ) I really loved your “how many uses” post. That was great. I too, loved the towel idea.

    Now I have one for you. I bought a lazy susan a year or so ago and at the time I had a great idea. Now I have forgotten what that idea was. Do you suppose it was to organize things in my pantry, because the pantry shelves are very deep and the two doors are trifold so they cover 1/2 of the shelves?

    I hope more people stop on by to visit your excellent 100 list and I am sure you will get your 100th post! Keep up the excellent work ~ I really enjoy reading all the awesome ideas.

    Oh, one last thing, I am also a lefty, hate cats, love containers and have them everywhere (empty) so that is why I am here, ready to start filling up all my neat containers! lol : )
