ABC’s of Me

Oh you know me; I can’t resist a good questionnaire about myself!  Feel free to join on your blog too!  I got this one from Josey.

(A) Age: 30 (2 months from 31…WHAT?! I swear I just turned 30!)

(B) Bed Size: King and will never go back to anything smaller.  Neither T. nor I are snugglers and both love our space when we sleep. So king bed all the way!

(C) Chore You Hate: Vacuuming. HATE IT. And dusting. And unloading the dishwasher. I don’t like chores. (I do like cleaning the bathroom though – weird?!)

(D) Dogs? We had a family dog growing up.  Her name was Lady and she was the sweetest Golden Retriever EVER!  Now we have some great cats.

(E) Essential Start Your Day Item: It was coffee, but I gave that up.  Now juice and something for breakfast.

(F) Favorite Color: Green. Love green.

(G) Gold or Silver: Always silver.

(H) Height: 5’10” or 5’11. It seems to fluctuate depending on how much I hunch over at my desk that week. My posture sucks.

(I) Instruments You Play: I took a guitar class in college and really liked it, then I stopped playing.  I want to pick it up again though.

(J) Job Title: Administrative Assistant

(K) Kids: We can’t wait for this phase in our life!

(L) Live: Ohio

(M) Mom's Name: Sally

(N) Nicknames: hmmm, not really.

(O) Overnight Hospital Stays: When I was younger

(P) Pet Peeve: OH WHERE TO START! The biggest one would have to be hands down loud eaters. I cannot STAND loud eaters.  I also cannot stand rude people.

(Q) Quote from a Movie: Probably any line from Young Frankenstein. “Put... ze candle... *back*!”;  “HE'S GOT A ROTTEN BRAIN! IT'S ROTTEN, I TELL YA! ROTTEN! Ixnay on the ottenray.”; And the best “Hallo. Vould you like to have a roll in ze hay? It's fun. Roll, roll, roll in ze hay.”

(R) Right or Left Handed: Right.

(S) Siblings: An awesome sister and two great brothers

(T) Time You Wake Up: 7:20 a.m. or the last possible moment I can get up while still making it to work on time.

(U) Underwear: As comfy as possible

(V) Vegetable You Dislike: Zucchini, squash, brussel sprouts, & pea pods.

(W) What Makes You Run Late: Other people! I hate being late, but having to wait for others ehem…TERRY…makes me late.  I will even tell him a time 15 minutes before I want to leave and he still takes his time and is late.

(X) X-Rays You've Had Done: Do not recall why, but I know I have had an x-ray before.

(Y) Yummy Food You Make: This deconstructed chicken Parmesan is awesome.  I make a really good spinach as well. Amongst many other things ;-)

(Z) Zoo, Favorite Animal: Elephants!


  1. why'd you give up coffee? i mean, it may be a personal reason and therefore you need not respond to my prying. but, "Why I Gave Up Coffee" is a vote for your next post. again, not if it's too personal to share. i'm addicted.

  2. I was addicted too so that is a good question! Let me tell you what happened....

    Coffee and I needed a little break as our relationship was becoming very one sided. I was just too reliant on coffee and it kept pressuring me to drink more and more of its deliciousness. I warned coffee if it didn't back off we would be through, but coffee knew it had me where it wanted me and that I would always come back to it. So after the first of the year I told coffee we were done. Of course this is a temporary thing, as both coffee and I know we can not stay away from each other forever as we both need each other. But coffee and I decided we needed some time apart for awhile to remember why it is we love each other so!

    True story :)

  3. Guitar - so cool! Elephants are my favorite too!!

    Love this stuff about you!

  4. OMG - all that crap I just wrote rhymed. Don't hold it against me.
