Things I've Done...

I copied this from Momma Bear, and I thought it was cool. Don't judge me for what you find here. Hers said to make BOLD the things you've done. Never one for following the rules if I can make up my own, I decided to make the things I've done RED. If you want to play, copy/paste these into your own blog, and leave me a comment so I'll know to head on over there to read about you. Add events if you want; I added #100 because I just couldn't stop at 99!
