    • Aw, thanks, Angela! I can't remember which magazine it was that used to have something like this. Feel free to steal it…I'd love to read your numbers!

  1. great idea. Did this take you awhile? Because I would sit longer thinking about what I could count than I would actually spend typing! I love it though. I'll be celebrating pretty hard when are last is out of diapers too 🙂

    • I know, right?! PARTY! I came back to this a couple of times, and honestly, I think I could write a list like this four or five times over. I keep thinking of more and more. But, it was plenty long as it was! That's why I added "approximate"….so I wouldn't have to do too much thinking. 😀

  2. This is an awesome list. Love it!!! I remember the day I didn't have to buy diapers or pull ups anymore… heaven!!!

  3. 453 – the number of times my toddler elbows/ knees me, whether by accident or intentionally

    453 -the number of bruises I have on my body


  4. Awesome list and very inspiring!
    Love the picture, and just so you know – I'm counting myself as one of the 78 bloggy friends you've made!

  5. I love this post (definitely lived up to my expectations)! And I think I need to do a post like this too because it's so much fun. I can't even comment on every single one of these numbers like I want to – but I'll say a big congratulations on all the weight you've lost! That's awesome!

  7. I think my favorite is the number of days between getting engaged and married the second time. 🙂

    Great post, girl!! 😀

    • Haha! Yeah, we had started planning a wedding in the spring (got engaged in Oct, on my birthday) and decided a couple of weeks later that we'd rather go to Vegas. 🙂

      You should do your own, Elaine! I'd love to read them!!

  16. Oh my gosh, I love this! I'm a little late in reading (vacation last week) but I'm going to join in!

    And no, the world can't handle another dose of Gfunkified awesomeness!

  17. I love this idea and can't wait to do mine. I don't know how I missed this except that I'm having blogging difficulties at the moment and trying to fix them. I love the how many times you yell and how many times you smile. SO TRUE!

  19. I can't tell you how much fun I've had reading yours and others numbers. Such a fun way to get to know my friends better. Potty training should always be celebrated with drinks…that means you need to practice the celebrating to get it right as you go along in the actual potty training. 😉

    • I really should be practicing. And by the time I get to potty training him, I'll need some extra. Then of course, the actual celebration drinks!

  22. Love love love this post! And I'm right there with you with the celebratory mojitos once kiddos are out of diapers. Cheers to that! 🙂 Thanks for the great linkup! 🙂

  23. I need to get to your blog more. I love your numbers! And yay you for the 5K's this year. You and I are neck and neck with our love for coffee for sure.

    • Oh, coffee. Sweet nectar of the soul. 🙂 I've got a Thanksgiving 5K in the morning, which means I need to go to bed! At least I'll burn some calories before a huge feast of a lunch. Ha! Thanks for joining in with me, Ilene!

  26. This is such a fun and clever post. I've loved reading about everyone's life in numbers. While my kiddos are technically out of diapers, my youngest is still having accidents. I will be toasting with mojitos and purses once he's finally and completely potty trained!!

  40. What a great list! It was kind of like watching a good movie or reading a good book – some parts made me sad (losing your first husband!?), other parts made me laugh (number of times you yell at vs smile at your kids!) and, in the end, the whole thing was great!! Glad I found you from your SITS day!

  41. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!! Hilarious and oh how I can relate!!

    537 The number of times I tell my kids "Are You KIDDING ME?" in one week.

    899 The number of times I thank God for said kids in one week.

  42. 132 days until retirement. 1 day until a 3 day weekend. Love the post. Enjoy your SITS Day.

  43. Creating a numbers list would take me a week to do! 🙂 At age 5-0, there's quite a few numbers in my life…probably too many to count. Your post made think, however, of all the numbers that I've created throughout the years.

    Good for you for being so honest. Love your blog!

  44. I love this and may just have to borrow the idea! Hmmmm…the wheels are already turning…
    Happy SITS Day!

  45. What a great idea! I've never really thought about my life in this way… I'll have to get some numbers gathered and do a post about it! Thanks for the inspiration, and hope you had a wonderful SITS Day! 😀
