    Like I said, it amazes me you came up with 50! haha. Okay now for some comments:
    – Never been camping?! I am not a fan but still have been lots. You need to change that 🙂
    – I agree – hate socks too.
    – I knew you hated avocado but that means you are nuts still.
    – I am the same way, cannot have my finger nails painted but always have to have my toes done!
    – I hate horses lol. Everything about them though.

          It was fun to write too!! I totally want to become a Crossfit coach, but I wouldn’t mind running a bootcamp too!

          Scared of lady bugs?! They are so harmless.

    I love #5, to be a fitness instructor. It’s crazy how things change. I never in my wildest dreams would have thought I would be a personal trainer

    you’re only 5’3″, i swear i thought you were taller! That’s alright though because i’m only 5’1″
    I rarely wear socks. if i have to, the moment I don’t have to anymore they are gone.

    so many cool things i didn’t know about you!

    i hate having my nails painted, only toe nails on occasion.

    I love these posts! I’m never good at them though.

    Great pictures of you and Liam!!

    About me? I grew up on a horse farm and still had a healthy fear of them! They are big and powerful!

    I don’t like camping. It always looks so cool when other people do it but when I go I just hate it.

    So I totally fell of the blogging wagon this summer, totally blaming having two under two on that one. But I follow your blog on the reg (which sounds totally creepy) and this post, for whatever reason, got all my creativity flowing. So come read my 50 things!! I even wrote a weeks worth of blog posts after it. Thanks for breaking my writers block. 🙂
