My 100 Things

Here I go - copying Katie's blog, sheerly because it was so enjoyable to read her 100 things! If you have a blog of your own, I hereby tag you to share your 100 with me! :) So, without further adieu, I bring you my 100 .........

3. My relationship with God is the number one priority in my life.

6. My heart's true desire is to be a wife and a mom. This will happen someday, of that I am certain.
7. Ice cream has the ability to make everything bad in my life go away for awhile!
8. I take my 4-year-old niece, Lexie, on a "girls day" date at least twice every month and always anticipate the arrival of our next date.

17. I hate all other kinds of shopping.
18. I'm extremely claustrophobic because my brother, Tory, put me in the dryer when we were kids and turned it on.
