100th post!!!

I cannot believe that I have made it to my 100th post. Time DOES fly! I know alot of people do NOT like to read these, and those people don't have to. :) BUT.....for whoever DOES, here goes....

1. I was born Jennifer Nicole Gaines.

2. My birthday is May 28, 1975.

3. I have one brother who is 3 years older.(Bradley)

4. My brother was REALLY mean to me growing up, but now as adults, I count him as one of my closest friends.

5. We moved a lot when I was growing up.

6. My dad was a coach, nuff said.

7. I always wanted to go on the field with my dad while he was coaching.

8. The only time I got to was as an adult. I STILL loved every minute of it.

9. I wanted to have a son so that he could go on the field with my dad since I never got to.

10. My dad retired from coaching BEFORE I had Jude.

11. That broke my heart!

12. My Sophomore year I went to Permian High School in Odessa.

I graduated from Monterey High School in Lubbock.

14. I was a twirler in junior high AND high school. I loved it!

15. I don't talk to anyone from my high school anymore.

16. I met Glen when he was a senior in high school.

17. We married 2 days after he graduated.

18. YES! I robbed the cradle. He is 3 years younger than me.

19. I wonder why God gave me Glen.

20. Most of the time I think Glen is WAY too good for me.

21. My favorite job in the world is being a mom and wife.

22. This was my dad's number in football and Avery's AND Bailey's number on the soccer field.

23. Glen and I've been married for 11 and a half years.

24. My favorite color is black.

25. I love jewelry.

26. I love make-up.

27. MAC make-up is my FAVORITE!!!!

28. One of my favoritest (I made it a word OK?) things to do is going shopping at the MAC counter with my mom.

29. OK. Make that one of my favoritest things in the world to do is shop with my mom ANYWHERE!!! She's my shopping buddy!

30. My mom makes everything OK. Still to this day I want her with me when I get sick.

31. I hope my kids love me like I love my mom.

32. I want to love my kids like my mom loves me.

33. I have allergies and have since I was about 5.

34. Bailey scratches her throat like I scratch mine. It is an awful sound.

35. I am a little stubborn. OK a lot stubborn.

36. I really like purses. They can be bought whether you are having a fat day or not. They ALWAYS fit!!

37. One of my dreams is to ride horses on the beach. Maybe one day!

38. I used to HATE my nose, but now I think it is fine.

39. My hero is my daddy.

40. I have several best friends (Cindy, Mom, Kathy, Anna). They are all different ages, but I consider them all the best of the best!

41. I have one that I call my bestie. (anna) I know it is childish and I don't care.

42. With every pregnancy I wanted to have a boy.

43. I finally got my wish when Jude was born. Woo-hoo!

44. I DO love my girls though. Turns out God DOES know what he is doing!

45. It is making me sad that my girls are getting out of the bow stage. I'm trying to hold on to it as long as I can.

46. Avery has WAY passed that stage. :(

47. Speaking of passing - Avery is going to pass me height wise before too long. IT IS KILLING ME! It is harder to discipline someone that is eye level with you.

48. I really like acrylic nails, but also like the way short nails feel and look on me. AND they are free. :)

49. Yummy smelling candles are some of my favorite things to get as gifts. It is always interesting to see what scent people pick for you.

50. Watching disabled/overweight people or animals on tv, makes me not able to eat. I have to leave the room or just not eat. I have always joked about putting a picture of a really overweight person on my fridge to curb my appetite, but I never have. I know this is WAY abnormal.

51. I hope I don't hurt anyone's feelings by writing some of these things on here.

52. I love to tan. I KNOW I KNOW. It is bad for you.

53. I like to sing to my kids and be silly. I think they like it too.

54. I think Glen is so cute. Even that bald head is cute to me.

55. I hate to do laundry. Not the best thing to hate with 4 kids.

56. Oh yeah, I have 4 kids!!!

57. I do NOT like to wake the kids up in the morning. That is Glen's job.

58. I made something up called "Fun Night" where I spend 15 minutes with one kid per night. They each have their own night and they get to choose something that they want to do with me for 15 minutes at bed time on their night. The usual is nails or make-up, while watching tv of coarse. Sometimes they surprise me and read to me. I LOVE that!!

59. I love to go jogging with my dog Harley. She loves it too.

60. I usually run close to 3 miles.

61. I haven't run in 2 weeks and I am feeling like a loser!!!!

62. Growing up I would get strep a LOT.

63. As an adult, I get it at least once a year.

64. I have 2 nieces. One on my side (Ainsley) and one on Glen's side. (Madalyn) I miss them!

65. I do not have my degree.

66. I haven't needed one yet, but still don't know what I'll do when Jude goes to school.

67. Sometimes I think that I am a laid back mom and at others think that I am VERY strict.

68. I want to be a good mom!!!!

69. I love Rocket Dog shoes.

70. The pediatrician called me a skater the other day because I had Rocket Dogs on and a camo hat. It made me laugh.

71. My life long friend Paige and I had matching life like dolls growing up. Mine was a girl, Tiffany and hers was a boy ,Jason. They really sucked their pacifiers and people REALLY thought that they were real. We had so much fun with those things. I still have mine too.

72. Someone from high school that I didn't know very well asked me if I had a face lift since then. I laughed at that, but didn't quite know what to think. Still thinking on that one.....AND laughing!!!

73. I have come to love the Yankees because Glen loves the Yankees!!

74. I used to ask my dad who he was going for (still do) and whoever he was for, I was for!

75. I have 3 living grandparents.

76. I DO consider Glen's grandparents like my own though. They are very special to me!!

77. I really like teaching the 4's at my Mother's Day Out. I have been doing it for 8 years.

78. I like to have white teeth.

79. I am the reigning champion in the family at the moment for whitest teeth. :) HA HA Bradley!!!

80. I love to take naps!

81. I love to garage sale.

82. I love reality tv.

83. Whoever invented DVR deserves some kind of prize.

84. Long toenails gag me out!

85. I wear glasses/contacts.

86. I have been on 1 cruise and I hope to take my family again one day. They still talk about it and we went a year and a half ago.

87. I love my dimples, but they are turning into wrinkles. BUMMER!

88. My iPod is one of my favorite things.

89. It makes me SO sad to see my kids grow up. I cry about it every once in a while.

90. I can't imagine my life without my kids.

91. My kids are my buddies.

92. I wish I could have another child, but Glen said no.

93. He said no to having number 4 (Jude), but I talked him into it.

94. There is no talking him into it this time, unless we go back to the doctor. *wink wink*

95. Getting my hair done is something I look forward to the minute I walk out of the salon.

96. I already have some Christmas shopping done.

97. I love hot baths in the winter time.

99. If I could go anywhere for vacation, I would go to the beach.

100. This hasn't been as hard as I though it would be. It was kind of fun.

OK guys. I am sure after writing all that that very few will make it to the end, but it was fun anyway.


  • I made it through! Even though I already knew most of these things, I enjoyed reading it. #57 is the one I most relate to, as I do not like to wake sleeping children. Maybe because I don't like anyone waking me up! :) And unfortunately #61 applies too.
