ABC's of Me

I wanted to write something, but haven't had any ideas, so I figured I do this little all about me post.

A. Attached or Single? I'd say pretty attached. :) Married to my wonderful husband for 6 years.

B. Best friend? That guy in the picture up there. I have other very good friends, but he is my absolute best friend. I tell him almost everything and miss him terribly when he is away.

C. Cake or Pie? Y'all are going to be shocked by this. Pie. Cake is just eh for me.( And if I'm being completely honest, I prefer frosting out of the jar. Judge away.) Not much beats a slice of warm pie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.

D. Day of Choice? Fridays usually. Friday means my husband is most likely in town and the kids will be wrapping up their last day of school for the week. Nothing beats spending time with my family.

E. Essential item? Carmex. I cannot stand having chapped lips. Carmex is the only thing that seems to work for me, but it's not doing the best job these days. I need to find something better.

F. Favorite color? Purple! I love all things purple. It's been my favorite for pretty much my entire life.

G. Gummy Bears or Worms? Worms.

H. Hometown? Troy, Missouri. I spent the first four years of my life in Brimfield, IL, but grew up in Troy. I now live in Arnold, Missouri just south of St. Louis.

I. Indulgences? That's a hard one. I guess Starbucks coffee (at home). I cut costs a lot of places, but my coffee is not to be messed with

J. January or July? Uh. January! I hate heat. HATE it. 

K. Kids? Three of the most awesome small humans ever! The girl is almost 15 (!!), the older boy is 12 and the small boy is 7. Why do my babies have to be so big??? :(

L. Life isn't complete without? Coffee. There's not much better than that first cup in the morning. Before the chaos of the day. Just a little time to myself.

M. Marriage date? 12/05/2008

N. Number of Siblings? Four. I have an older sister and brother and two younger brothers. I happen to be the shortest clocking in at 5'8". How ridiculous is that??

O. Oranges or Apples? Apples. Fuji to be exact.

P. Phobias? Arachnophobia and claustrophobia

Q. Quotes? One step at a time.

R. Reasons to smile? Life. I can't remember a time feeling so much joy and happiness in general. From my kids being healthy, to my husband earning another promotion, to being a stay at home mom, to a warm cup of coffee. I have so many reasons to smile.

S. Season of choice? Fall. I love the cool relief from the awful summer heat. I run really well when it's cooler so when fall hits, I'm over the moon excited.

T. Transportation? You'll find me driving around town in my minivan. Like a boss. I'm not the biggest fan of it, but a car is a car. The kids love the space. If they are happy, I'm happy. Just give me a car that gets good gas mileage, and I'm a happy camper.

U. Unknown fact about me? I'm socially awkward. I never know what to say, and I usually stumble all over myself when I finally figure out what to say. I usually come off as either a snob or a moron. 

V. Vegetable(s)? I dig them. I'll pretty much eat any. Not the biggest fan of lima beans or peas, though.

W. Worst habit? I have to pick one?? I'm a leg bouncer. It doesn't bother me, but it sure bothers my family when we are at the table trying to eat and the table is shaking. I don't even realize I am doing it until someone points it out, and when I try to stop? Oh boy. It's so hard to just quit. I'm constantly moving my legs. As I type this, my right leg is bouncing furiously. 

X. Xray or Ultrasound? Xray, although I'd prefer neither because it means something is wrong. Yikes. Xray takes less time and involves less touching. I don't like being touched by people I don't know.

Y. Your favorite food? All of it? Donuts followed by pizza at a close second.

Z. Zodiac Sign? Scorpio, but I really don't take much stock in the horoscope business.

There ya have it! A little bit of me that you may not have known.
