95- Apparently I really like candy corn and can down almost a whole bag in one sitting. I say apparently because I just did this and yes I have a tummy ache as a result.
96- I am pregnant with my 4th (and probably final) baby. We are really hoping for a girl, but expecting a boy.
97- I waited like forever (for me-8 weeks, normally I am telling everyone the second I pee on the stick) to tell anyone that I was pregnant (except of course my hubby). Even then I only told my family because I was in PA by myself with 3 kids and sick. It was kind of fun keeping it secret for awhile.
98- Our baby is due at the end of March (the 29th to be exact).
99- There is no way that I would ever wait till the baby is born to find out the sex. No way, I am to much of a planner, I need everything set up and ready to go.

You do not like them, so you say. Try them, try them and you may. Try them and you may I say...they're not that bad with a bit of butter and S&P!

Kevin said...

Awesome list! Each one of those 100 things (and more) is why I love you. Please don't ever change.

101st thing about you... You are the best mother and wife in the entire world. If it were my list of "100 Things About Audrey", that would be #1.

Galo Fab 5 said...

What a sweet husband. Wow, never knew so much about you. Have to say I love Savannah Smiles. Can't say how many times I watched it growing up. Thanks for sharing.

J.J. said...

That was so fun to read, and to hear a lot of things I don't know about you.
That was so sweet what your husband said!

Galo Fab 5 said...

Oh and PS- The dog that barks all night and keeps us all up, I'm happy to say is not my dog. There's a new pup behind us. Maybe you can't hear it at your house if so, be glad you're sleeping at night. Because all of us across the street, are not. :) But Steve said he wishes it was our dog so he could come tell us to take care of it.

Kelli said...

loved reading about you. I hate that we don't do tae bo together anymore. I am glad that #98 is out there now. I can't wait to find out if you're having a boy or a girl. I'll help you think of boy names if you need to. Fun, fun, fun reading about you. Sorry I missed the Harvest Fair, I'll fill you in on that one another time.

Zoe said...

So much in common, I knew that there was a reason that I liked you!! :)

I learned a lot about you that I didn't know . . . like the whole candy corn issue. Clearly we have the same weakness.

I also worry about my kids drowning . . . especially when we go to St. George!

Zoe said...

PS Are you ready for SYTYCD this next tuesday?! :)

Angel said...

I know I said I wasn't going to post on this one, but this will be the 10th post on your 100 things. 1/10, get it? Corney, I know. Anyway, I really enjoyed reading your list and am anxiously awaiting the arrival of little Sydney! Kevin, your comment was wonderful! Tanner, I enjoyed talking to you.

Amara said...

Hey, I didn't know even half of that stuff! That was really fun to read. I hope I haven't annoyed you with ice before-- I do stuff like that.

Rachel said...

I just loved this post! I don't think I could think of that many things if I tried! I want to know how long that took you :)

What an awesome person you are!!

kim e said...

audrey...hey...i found your blog from a link on naomi's blog, and i had to say hello. your 100 things post was great, the calling everyone by their first names made me smile, and the coppa cabana one made me think of the time we preformed it at the picnic in memory grove, remember? what a fun family you have...we have three boys also and just had our 4th...a girl, about 9 months ago...so you too can have a girl (although we didn't get our hopes up!). you can email me if you want to catch up more....kimberly.ellsworth@gmail.com
take care,
kim (aka hoppy or sis. hopkins)

sgwinfrey said...

I loved reading about you, I specifically was waitin for something to come up about coppa cabana. Glad that made the top 100 things about you. I learned a lot from this, like that you are preggo with #4. Congrats.. Fingers XX you get what you want (get it). Dilly just had her 3rd boy in May.

Jeff said...

We love you crack head. What a nice husband you have. If Sr. Cope knew you were cheating on the spanish tests he would have been muy enojado. That means very angry for those that didn't pay attention in Spanish. I think the next boy should be Moses. If its a girl you should stick to the bible theme and call her Lot's wife.

Princess Gerty said...

That was really cool! I am so glad you took the time to post all that! I am surprised at how much of that I already knew, and the rest was so fun to read! You are so cool! Congrats on the baby! I hope you get to enjoy a girl! They are fun!
