You already know, but I'll post it here anyway... I'm just over 5' tall. My driver's license says 5'1", but it's being generous.
I come from a short family. My hubby is just short of 6', and when we visit my parents, he feels like he's entered Munchkinland :D

Simply AnonyMom said...

I am 64 3/4" (5' 4 3/4") I wish I was 5'5", but alas my growing stopped just short.

Hot Tub Lizzy said...

I.... Am.... Comment... Challenged.

67.5 inches

Michelle said...

Somewhere between 5'8 and 5'9. And I'm all about the ellipses!

Karen said...

I'm 5' 1 1/2" and like you, that 1/2" is really, really important!!

See, you can look down on me, from all of 1 inch :-)

Britt said...

Apparently I'm 5'3 .. Totally assumed I got that extra inch, but no I stopped growing upwards at 14 and was just given this harsh reality check a month ago.

I'm still not over my loss of that inch.

Oh, and I have a deep respect for the ...'s .. see? I can't help myself! And I think they are made all the more fabulous by calling them ellipses!

SKELLER said...

Love ellipses myself...

I'm 5' 6 & 3/4", which makes me exactly 1/2" taller than my darling hubby. but, who's keeping track?!?

Kori said...

5 feet 5 inches.

Ronnica said...

Love the ellipses! I use them all the time...

I'm 5' 3". Maybe a tad more, on a good day.

Connie said...

I'm around 5'7...and I'm an ellipsis lover too.
random ellipsis trivia in case you need to know:

Tara said...

Love the.....
I'm 5'5"

Steph said...

5'8"...but I think I'm shrinking...

JourneytoFamily said...

I...love...it...

I'm 5'3 and perfectly happy with my height. If you ask my good friends, even my best friend how tall I am, they usually think I'm 5'6. I've been told I act like a taller person (whatever that means). I never wear heels though.

Lindsey said...

Wow! I just found your blog (via momdot) and love it! I'm 5'5.75" (yes, I ALWAYS round up to 5'6" when asked in public) But hey, my husband's 6'4" so every 3/4 of an inch counts! Lindsey, Mommy Chronicles

Jacki McHale said...

Just clearing 5' with a 1/2"!

Elena said...

Wow, I had no idea you were shorter than me. I just always assumed you'd be the same as me. Weird huh. I'm 5'4" That was a fun question.

maryanne420 said...

hi debbie,

yes, will you please post it. i would love for real "southern belles" to make it. my friend said that there's so many transplant southern ladies that want to audition here but they'd been "corrupted" and "hollywoodnized" LOL. is that even a word?

maryanne420 said...

btw, i'm 5'3"

Jaci said...

5'8, and for 1/2 a minute I was a model.

For wedding gowns.

At a local bridal show.

In the ghetto mall.

I'm the next Heidi Klum. :)

Jenni said...

I am 5'10". . .and I often wear heels. I figure I am already sky high what's a couple inches (So long as I don't pass up my huband at 6'1"). And if you really want to picture me correctly, you might want to visit my blog. . .my image altered significantly yesterday!

Gina said...

I am 5'4" short. If were anothe inch taller I would be round....

Kat said...

I used to be the tallest person. I should have posted my fourth grade class photo the other day on my school pictures post. I am even taller than Naldo Peeples and his afro. Why do I remember his name??

Then, in 6th grade...it happened. I stopped growing. And everyone surpassed me. By a lot. They grow 'em tall here. I was 5'6 at 10. And I think I've shrunk to about 5'5.

Lauren said...

Deb,
That 1/2 inch is SO important. You know I am also 5' 2 1/2". But, did you know that (14 year old) Nick is now 5'6"? He is like a science experiment in puberty...

HeathahLee said...

Megan B said...

5' 2"!

Swirl Girl said...

....I am 5'8" - thank god. Or else I'd be really , really ....fat.

Hubby asked what all the ....s were for. I told him that in bloggy world, you can't hear inflection - so puntuation and italicizing and font size does the trick....he bought that answer.

S'more of my Thoughts said...

5'6" ......... unless I have shrunk. Add me to the list of ....... lovers!

Mrs. Jones said...

I love dot dot dots! I thought I was the only one who used them too much. I'm just not ready to END a sentence ... just pause ... as if I'm really talking to you. ;-)

Texan Mama @ Who Put Me In Charge said...

I am 5'6" tall. However people always think I'm taller because I refuse to wear any flat shoes (except tennis shoes). I also weigh 162 and I am about a size 12 or 14. Not that you care, but I thought I'd give you a good visual.

Piggy said...

Used to be 5' 1.5", but at my last checkup, the nurse said that I am 5' .5"! I shrunk an inch already?!?! By the way, does it drive Lauren crazy when people say dub dub dub instead of www when referring to web addresses? :D

Julie said...

I am 5'5 and I do the ... thing all the time. It is part of me I think... I love it. Keep it up!

I am so excited to get the books and be able to know what everyone is talking about, thanks for blessing me.

heather said...

i am five six and a half, so i am on the tall side of average.

i think five two is on the tall side of short and five eight is on the short side of tall.

:)

Tracy P. said...

I think I'm pretty much one of the most average people I know. 5'4 3/4". I didn't make it to 5'5" either!

Vicki said...

I'm 5'4"...completely average. I've always wished I were a couple inches...taller. Just a couple. And I also love...using these little dotted elipses thingies...

Missy said...

5'3" I grew early, so I was the big girl at the bottom of the cheerleader pyramid! Hard to believe now .......................
.........................................................................................................
Sometimes I do things in excess....

Caroline said...

I am 5'7 3/4". Not quite 5'8", but not just 5'7" either. So there. I love your questions.

Michelle said...

I'm 5'3"... but most people don't know that... since I always wear heels... on casual days at work... when I wear flats... I have to endure the "wow, you're really short" comments all day long...

Deb Burton said...

5'9" and at my age, hopefully not shrinking. :>)

Lynn - the piggy bank painter said...

Is it ellipses or ellipsi? Hmmm.....

I'm 5'2" and wish I could reach things on the top shelf.

Melissa Lester said...

I am 6' 2". Just kidding. I have claimed 5' 5" for a long time, but I think I am really 5' 4" now. I have heard that every extra inch of height means another 5 pounds for a healthy weight. I sure wish I was 4 inches taller ... or 20 pounds lighter. Maybe doing some stretches would help me reach both goals?

Shannon said...

I'm 5'5"... but my sis says that she is 5'5" and she is taller than me, so I must be 5'4" at the most.

I say its just that her hair is bigger.

Shell said...

I'm 5'3 but I just round it up to 5'4 on my good days.

Hipmomofboyz said...

I'm 5'2 and 1/2 and yes I do throw that 1/2 inch out there all the time. It makes me feel taller...

Kelly said...

Oh, your friend would hate reading my posts...it's full of .....it's a bad habit I know....
I'm 5'9"

Lula! said...

You know me...and my dot-dot-dots. I think I'm the queen of the ellipses. Yep.

I'm 5'5". But my husband is 6'3", and my girls appear to be taking after him. Caroline's in the 95% for height, Lib is in the 85%. Praise God. No stubby legs for my girls.

You are so funny...what with asking this question and all. Love how everyone answered freely. If you'd asked, "What do you weigh?" I'm certain we'd all delete you from our blog rolls. HA!

Jen - Balancing beauty and bedlam said...

I love the....I can't type without them....
oh, and 5'8", unless I shrunk after the kids...which could be. :)

This Mom said...

OKay I am here to make ALLL of you that thought you were short feel VERY TALL.

Are you READY???/

I am 4'10" on a good day. I have always told anyone that if it was any thing shorter I didn't want to know.

By the way my dream was to be 5 feet.

Life With My 3 Boybarians said...

I am 7'2" tall. I used to play basketball. I got a Nike endorsement for all my long shots.

Ha. I'm like 5'3" on a good day. And I was a gymnast. People called me "shrimp". That wasn't very nice, was it?

As for my grammar? It's perfect. Thankyouverymuch. ;)

Kathi said...

I'm 5'2"......funny, I always pictured you being tall!!!
My two older kids grew taller than me this Summer...how weird is that??

By the way, Yea for dots.........!!!!!!

Betty said...

I´m a bit late, but I´m 5´7".
And I join the others: Yeah for ......................................................................................

Rene said...

Well....I'm 5' 7"....and....I....love....dots!

Jen said...

Well - I'm 5'1'' on a good day. So there. I am crazy for the dots. I think it makes it seem like conversation...or so I choose to believe as I inevitably include them in all of my posts!

EEEEMommy said...

5'7 3/4".....
and I like to wear 3" heels ;)

Jennifer P. said...

I....am......5....fooot.....7.

Your ..... is my ----- :)

Z's Mom said...

I love all the .........'s. They are totally necessary.
I am 5'4"....

Heather said...

I'm 5'7" on a really good day.

Angie said...

I'm 5'2 and I also am a dot addict... hehehe

The Farmer Files said...

I am 5/1". I LOATHE that Dr. chart that shows what you should weigh for your height. The weight for 5'1" is R.I.D.I.C.U.L.O.U.S. I don't make the cut by 5 or 6 lbs for the MOST you can way. And I am a very respectable pant size.

Teri said...

I am 5'10" - always the tallest for years and years...until I got to high school...then others were actually taller than me...amazing.

...love these...

Gramma 2 Many said...

5'5" Used to be 5'6". Some of the grands are taller than me and love it. Actually all of the teen grands are taller than me.

Joy in the Burbs... said...

I'm 5' 2 1/2"
A "short so and so" as my husband calls it.

I always throw the 1/2 in there too.

Jenkins said...

5'9 1/2"
Although I think I am shrinking. I am in my thirties and guessing that is too young to be shrinking.
But I am growing...from side to side.

Jen said...

I am tall and that is all I am going to say.

Jennifer said...

I'm 5'4" and enjoy this height. Heels are my friend. And I do like, when brave enough, asking for help from some lucky guy in reaching things from the top shelf at the grocery store, library or anywhere else.

Bobbie said...

I am the tallest woman in any room.... I am 6'1..... and I wear heels.... and I have never played basketball... And I too am addicted to the dots.... its like a pause in conversation.... I like them.

Janean Campbell said...

I'm a mere 5' 3" tall... My 13 year old daughter is 5'6"....Ugghhh.

Sidney said...

I'm 5'9"...and have been taller than my 5' mom since I was in third grade....a LONG time ago...but she's still short....

Pat said...

who knows Naldo Peeples from St. Thomas More in Decatur? I went there too and was very good friends with him in 2nd grade. Anyone know where he is?
