    Hi Hanna,
    I think it’s neat you are doing this. I have enjoyed reading all about you and learning some things I didn’t know. I especially like #48. (You’re definitely a keeper).

  2. Candy says:

    Hanna-It was interesting to learn all those things about you! Lola looks so cute in the snow……i actually went to look at a Boston Terrier today. So cute and fun! Hope all is well…when are you going to PV? I’m leaving next Friday with my girlfriends….can’t wait for some warm weather and the ocean 🙂

  3. Lori says:

    Me again. I could just SQUEEZE YOU TO DEATH! Even though we’re not a squeezing family.
    I so get about 87-89 things you said. I would say 100, but then that would make us the same person and that would be scary. I know I’ve said this 100.000.000 times (note the periods) but Londyn is so like you in so many ways. And I love seeing you in her. I guess that’s cause I know you best of the three of you kiddos(Not that I don’t LOVE both Nick and Karen – I do – Love to you BOTH!), you’re just the oldest and I’ve had more time with you.

    I’ve determined I like the blog. I like to see myself think.

    As a side note-I also like to use the—–hyphen. And I don’t think I use it correctly, but don’t really care – there!

  4. hckelley says:

    Awwww Lori!!! Loves to you!!! I do think we’re a lot alike. Londyn is like my little mini me… she’ll of course be taller with brown eyes but I do see a lot of me in her. It’s good stuff!! Miss you guys and hope to see you soon. Maybe we can plan a Cardinals game!!

  5. Mom says:

    It’s so awesome to read through your list and see a few things I didn’t know about you. You are a wonderful young lady..inspite of the seriously odd parenting skills of your mom….you have a fabulous husband…seeing you two together always makes me smile…extended family is to die for….Jana is the best!…I think your blog captures the best parts of you…you truly are beautiful!

  6. stew says:

    Hanna Banana, I’m just now getting to this. In fact, I just now found this on your blog! I didn”t know in real life you were a Braves fan…. too bad. I was at that Rangers game you all were talking about….in fact, there was acouple from Owensboro sitting in front of us…did not even know they were going to be there. Anywho, type to you later, Uncle Stew!

  7. Jenne says:

    #66 makes me laugh…

  8. Lana says:

    Hi Hanna:
    I have just visited your blog for the first time today!!! You have put a lot of thought into it. I like it. I wish that you had more on you “wish list” for you and Collin for Christmas 🙂
    I don’t get #19 at all….You will have to help me on that one. I would love to visit all 50 states too!
    Can’t wait to see you guys at Christmas
