You've never had a baby (94)?

wherever HE leads we'll go said...

I was wondering the same thing that Lara wondered. : )

Amy said...

Sang a solo? I'll be sure to let James know! :)

Stephanie's Mommy Brain said...

Oops! Missed the baby one! Can I blame it on the baby? = )

Stephanie's Mommy Brain said...

Amy, that was long ago in high school! Don't you know in small churches it's mandatory for the preacher's kids to sing solos? I wouldn't torture people like that now.

Jessica said...

What kind of business did you start?

Stephanie's Mommy Brain said...

I was a Pampered Chef consultant from 1999 to 2001. It was fun but got to be more work than it was worth. My main purpose in the business was to earn money to buy the products. Now I have lots of products and no kitchen space.

Jessica said...

Oh yeah I did know that. Your new look on your blog looks great by the way (how late am I with that comment?)

Stephanie's Mommy Brain said...

Thanks for the encouraging comments about the new design. I played with it on Sunday so you (and everyone else) aren't really late in seeing it. I found the free layout at Simply Fabulous Blogger Templates. (

Cassie said...

Funny! I just filled one of these out, myself and sent it to you. :o) It's not as long as yours though.

Rachel said...

I'll play along...check out my blog in a bit and I'll have it up. I thought you missing 94 was pretty funny.

Kat said...

I will be playing along. Looks like a lot of fun, and you can learn a lot of new things about somebody. :)

Maria Mundy, 22 said...

You missed #94!!!

Flamingo Mama said...

too funny...i was going to ask you about giving birth but then i see everyone else is already razzing you!

love the new look! is there a way you know how to do it without wiping everything out? that is why i hate changing mine...i wipe out my whole side bar everytime !

Stephanie @ My Answered Prayer said...

Love the new look!

I'll have to play along too.

I was a pampered chef consultant too around 1999. Did last very long though!

Organizing Mommy said...

Neat list!! Thanks for coming to my blog also. Plagarism comment was good also. I've been to Paris, but a lot of the others I haven't done yet. I guess there's a lot of life to live out there.

Alicia said...

I was wondering about the baby one as well! This is so much fun! I'll definitely do it sometime as well.
