  1. You are dorky & gay! But I do love how you let Gracie meet with a psychic. Nick is a hater.

  2. I LOVED this, but it is probably because I am also "dorky & gay" as Laurin described. HA!
    Think I might steal it and do it myself but 100 things seems a little difficult!

  3. I really enjoyed reading your 100 things. I might try it sometime before school starts.

  4. i found it much more difficult than i thought it would be when i did my 100 things list for my 100th blog post. really enjoyed reading yours. i could relate to a lot of your 100 things.
