ABC's of me

A: Age: 26

B: Bed size: Queen, which I've always been fine with until the bed became our preferred place to hang out with baby and it gets a lil crowded with 4 of us there!

C. Chore you hate: hmm. maybe dusting? when it requires moving everything off a surface, dusting the surface, dusting all the little things, then rearranging. Yup, dusting!

D. Dogs: I love the idea of them, and think they're so cute, but I don't like the reality of them. I really dislike dog smell, and I despise shedded fur all over the house. However, if there is absolutely NO dog smell, and very little shedding, I want that dog!

E. Essential start to your day: Nothing really. I eat breakfast, but not immediately. I guess my most immediate things once I'm actually up are going pee and getting a drink. (hey, you asked!)

F. Favorite color: Pink!

G. Gold or silver: I used to be all about the silver (or white gold) but my wedding ring is gold and I happen to like it. So, either, I suppose.

H: Height: 5' and maybe half an inch on a good day :)

I: Instruments that you can play: the piano, but not nearly as well as I wish I could. Too bad I didn't "apply myself" better during all those years my mom made me take lessons. Sigh.

J: Job title: Milk maker

K: Kids: Two girls, but hopefully at least one more in the next few years.

L: Live: Kansas. But there's several other places I'd rather be!

M: Mom's name: Julie

N: Nicknames: occasionally Meg, but not regularly.

O: Overnight hospital stays: only to give birth. Those are my only hospital stays, period.

P: Pet peeve: Oh Lord. I hate the phrase "pet peeve." You will never hear me say it. And while I could list several things that annoy me, I'll limit it to one: slow people that just meander when you're trying to walk at a brisk pace and get things done (like at the grocery store or Target or the mall). By all means, feel free to meander, but do it on the side of an aisle!

Q: Quote from a movie: "Yeah I called her up, she gave me a bunch of crap about me not listening to her, or something, I don’t know, I wasn’t really paying attention." Lol! I'm not going to lie, I couldn't really think of a stellar movie quote at the moment so I googled best movie quotes and this is the first one I read that I liked. Only because if I was being really honest, the same words could probably come out of my mouth! :)

R: Righty or lefty: Right handed

S: Sibling: I have two half brothers, and one ex-step-sister-in-law. I am definitely not a product of your typical American family. Or, more accurately, I am a product of what is considered typical now :/ Regardless, I love my family and think they're pretty fantastic!

T: Time you wake up: Usually about 7 am. Isabelle is a demanding alarm clock!

U: Underwear: Yes, I have some on, thanks for asking.

V: Vegetables you dislike: Beets. Eww.

W: What makes you run late: I would say Isabelle, but my husband would say that I'm late regardless. Clearly, he's wrong.Sometimes it's getting everything out to the car, kids ready, kids all buckled up, etc and then realizing I need to run back in the house for one. more. thing. Sigh.

X: X-rays: Only one, to rule out the possibility of pneumonia.Oh wait, and all those dental ones.

Y: Yummy food you make: I can't say that I have a favorite. My husband says everything I make is delicious. Clearly, he's just trying to make me feel appreciated so that I keep cooking. You can see some of my recipes here.

Z: Zoo favorite animal: Spider monkeys, or any other little cute monkey :)  Or otters. So cute and playful!


  1. I love your job title :)

    Your baby lets you sleep in!

  2. I'm a big fan of monkeys (or apes/gorillas) at the zoo, too!

  3. This looks fun. I loved learning new stuff about you! I might have to do this one for myself.

  4. Cute! We are similar in that my mom's name is Julie, I live in MO (close by KS), your Dumb and Dumber quote (even though you just randomly Googled it), and some other ones.

    First time to your blog and I love it!

    Thanks, Liz
