24) I am a dreamer.

25) I have a vivid imagination.

35) Within the next year, I plan on learning to play the piano AND pick up my guitar and play that also.

36) When I was little, and my mom or dad would say my prayers with me, I would lay in bed and thank God for everything...and I mean EVERYTHING...I would tell Him "thank you" for my bed, pillows, books, hair clips, mom, dad, me-ma, dad-dad, aunts, uncles, cousins, teachers, friends, animals, fingers, toes, sky...EVERYTHING! My parents would eventually stop me and just say,"Tell Him you're thankful for everything, honey....He knows."

54) I thought the most horrible, meanest and most terrible thing I could do as a child was to stick my tongue out.....and it sometimes terrified me to do it.

55) Our home was burglarized when I was little and I pulled the policeman into my room and told him that I was missing several hair clips that hung on a ribbon. I was just sure that they had been stolen!

56) I used to read the dictionary as a child. My dad has an immense vocabulary and constantly used these wonderfully eloquent words. When I asked him what these words meant, he would say,"Look it up." So, I did.

57) My favorite number is 111.

58) I do NOT like walking on grass barefoot.

68) I loved She-Ra Princess of Power, Rainbow Brite and Strawberry Shortcake...they were my homegirls!

69) When I pass a car accident, I make it a point not to look at it and then I always say a prayer. Something like,"Lord, please be with whomever was involved in that accident, please be with their family, let them not worry, let them be comforted. Hopefully, nobody was hurt. Thank you for watching over them, Lord. Amen."

70) I tend to over analyze things sometimes.

71) I am a BIG-TIME procrastinator.

72) I love sleeping late.

73) I have always disliked getting messy or dirty. On my first birthday, everyone was encouraging me to stick my finger in the cake (my mom made a "special" cake just for me to dive into) I gently stuck my finger in the icing, immediately took it out, then held it out for my mom to wipe off.

80) I played basketball in junior high, but always tried to foul out of the game so I wouldn't break a nail.

81) One day, I decided that I wanted to do, I practiced and practiced until I was able to do them.....that same day....

82) When asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, I always answered..."I want to be a doctor, an artist and a banker."

83) I love turning on all the lights in my parents house when I visit....hehe

84) In high school, I totalled my dad's car on my way to drill team practice at 6 am. I ran off the road, knocked out a big brick mailbox and came within inches of a telephone pole. The front windshield was completely shattered from the many bricks that went through it. There were bricks lying all around me in the car...not one of them hit me...I didn't have one scratch on me. Then, a man drove up and asked if I was ok...I told him I needed to get home, so I got in his car (a TOTAL STRANGER) and thankfully, he took me directly home. I have some major guardian angels watching over me....

85) I have trouble finding rings that fit fingers are so skinny. I wear a 3 or 3 1/2 on my ring finger.

86) I have wanted to get a nose job since I was 12....but, now I'm thinking that I may just keep what God gave me.

87) I change into my "comfies" within 5 minutes of being home.

88) My goal of "Being fluent in 10 different languages by the time I'm 30" will most likely not be met. I have about 4 weeks left...and 7 languages to go.

89) I love volunteering.

90) I used to teach preschool....and I still miss those kiddos. I balled and balled when I drove away from the school on my last day. I felt like I was abandoning them.

91) I like crunching ice in my teeth....I'm doing it right now.

92) Christmas is my absolute, all time, most favorite season and time of year.

93) To get the best view of the tree, you have to turn off all of the lights, turn on the Christmas tree lights and then squint your eyes to make the lights all blurry and magical. Oh, and you must have either Bing Crosby or Andy Williams singing in the background.

94) Just an FYI, I could easily make a list of "100 Things I Love About Christmas".

95) I prefer cold temperatures to hot temperatures....I know my name is Summer, but Dallas in the summertime is miserable.

96) I want to travel the world.

97) I always make a big deal about my birthday and this year ESPECIALLY!!!

98) I LOVE rainy days....(as long as I can snuggle up in bed until 10 and then drag myself to the couch where a day of reading books and watchtime Lifetime ensues...)

99) I am thankful every single day that Jesus died on the cross for my sins.

100) I am happy 99.9% of the's a choice, after all.... :)
