100 Rerun

Originally I posted this on Sunday, January 28, 2007 in my former blog. That blog is now private but I still thought I would dredge this up a year later cuz it's just SO much fun! It is funny how things have changed, or not, since then.

So if you haven't seen this before, enjoy and if you have go ahead and laugh again. It's ok, I can take it.

I love that you posted this again. Great idea.

I still can't believe that in the gazillion times that you went to Utah this year, that you didn't make it to Park City even once. You'll get 'em next time.

So, it's a year later...how's that song coming?

llegue said...

Hey heather, lost your email address. I'd still like to read 4b's sorry I'm a flake!

Heather said...

Tiff, we acutally did make it to park city this summer! See, some things change (unlike the song, which I can guarantee you that I didn't even look at this last year). Thanks for asking. HA!

Brooklet said...

I read this the first time, but I caught some things the second time around- like I noticed you enjoy an awful lot of water sports, scuba, etc, yet are not that great of a swimmer?? I think this reflects the fearless side of you!

Holly said...

Wow...nice to meet you Heather! =) Those temple trips were fun. Ok I only went on one..but I will never forget it.

Tharker said...

Way to go Beck!

debsters said...

Great list! Me too for #7 ("Borrowed" my parents car but didn't run into anything), 28 and 64!!

"Vern" said...

about #26 - that must have been one cute guy!

JustRandi said...

We have popcorn and orange julius for sunday dinner too!
Wow. It's fun to get a different look at you!

Jan said...

Wow. So much to take in about you. Learned alot. Thanks. I love #38. That is one of my favs it to get in the car and just go. Now the price of gas sort of blew that fun. You live life Heather.

Lindsay said...

It was fun reading your list again. #38--Good thing you like road trips since you've gone to Utah like 100 times this year.

Movie Queen said...

I loved re-reading this. The only wreck I've ever caused myself was driving into the corner of our garage. Not once...but twice. Yup, I'm a smart one.
And I think I asked this same question last year and don't remember the answer: What exactly is "butt rock"?

Sarah said...

We like "Little People, Big World" around our house too. I'm also with you on #36, #40. Hey, I know. Maybe we could take a trip to New York to go see the NKOTB reunion tour! I have a hard time believing that you never went to Prom or Homecoming. Those boys at your school must not have been very smart.

Sarah said...

Oh, and to find a pretty good summary of what "butt rock" is check it out on www.urbandictionary.com.

Rock out Jeremy!

I love this list! You are one interesting chica. I don't think I knew a lot of these things about you. I remember you telling that stapler story at a YW activity--seriously funny! I think I told you about backing out of the garage and running over the paper boy's bike--just as he was jumping off to avoid losing his legs! And then I panicked and put the car in drive and drove over it again! Our new car still has satellite radio for a few months and I just heard NKOTB on Radio Disney yesterday. Talk about a blast from the past!
