    Another 100 List! I Can't Help Myself!

    I love these so much! Veggiegirl always has these cool lists on her blog. This is almost as much fun as getting mail used to be when I was a kid! Getting mail isn’t so fun now, b/c it is usually just bills. I do look forward to getting my magazines and cards, but that is about it.

    Anywho, onto the list! It is a Sweet 100 list!!

    First, here are the rules:

    1.) Copy this list into your site, including the instructions!

    2.) Bold all of the sweets you’ve eaten–or make them a different type color.

    3.) Cross out any of them that you’d never ever eat.

    4.) Consider anything that is not bold or crossed out your “To Do” List.

    5.) Optional: Post a comment here linking to your results–or just post a comment letting us know how many you’ve tried, or what you’re going to try next!

    And now, here is…
