A-B-C's of Me!

You know, most people would start a post or email of this kind off saying something like, "I normally don't do these things, but..." I, however, love doing these types of things, and I especially love getting my friends to do them and send them back! I love getting to know little things about different people, especially those I don't know well. So, here is a different take on the "getting to know you" post. AND, I tag everyone who reads it to post one on their blog, too! I mean, who doesn't like "talking" about themselves? ;)

A-Attached or Single? Attached…Married almost 5 years, 4 months

B-Best Friend(s): Richard for sure is my number one BFF…Just under him, I would include Sally, Dawn, Amy, Jody and Donna…and my Momma!

C-Cake or Pie: CAKE…my favorite is dulce de leche.

D-Drink of Choice: Water and coffee everyday, and occasionally, a glass of red wine.

E-Essential Item: Hair straightener

F-Favorite Color(s): Blue and Brown

G-Gummi Bears or Worms? BEARS…they are actually my favorite kind of candy.

H-Hometown: Uvalde, Texas


J-January or February: January…I still have a few days of vacation before going back to school.

K-Kids: We don’t have any yet, but we're working on it…

L-Life is incomplete without: Good girlfriends.

M-Marriage Date: October 12, 2002

N-Number of Siblings: 1 younger brother, Will (27),

O-Oranges or Apples? Honestly, I can’t choose. I’m a fruit-natic, so I LOVE both of them!

P-Phobias/Fears: Snakes…I hate them and I really do get a sick feeling when I see one, in person or on t.v. I have a real fear of getting sick or someone in my family getting sick and dying, especially of cancer.

Q-Favorite Quote: “We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, while others bright, some have weird names, but they all have learned to live together in the same box.” –Author Unknown

R-Reasons to smile: great marriage/husband, cute puppies, amazing family, good friends, willing Savior

S-Season: The Summer time because I love being sun-kissed and spending time at the river or camping with family and friends.

T-Tattoo’s?: Not yet, but I have it designed. Someday?

U-Unknown Facts About Me: I love checking the mail and Richard actually leaves it for me because he knows it makes me happy. I love getting email, but I really don’t like talking on the phone. My friends and family just have to know this about me and love me anyway. I do NOT eat potatoes, except fries and they have to be thin. I’ve just never liked potatoes in any other form. I don’t like chocolate, either. Occasionally I will eat dark chocolate, but if I had a choice, I would get Skittles Starburst, or Haribo gummi bears, over chocolate any day. I’m a minimalist and I think it is because I grew up in a not-so minimalist home…consequently, I throw away anything I don’t need, or haven’t used/worn in the last year. I hate clutter.

V –Vegetable you love: I love pretty much ANY vegetable…even brussel sprouts, but my favorite has to be a tie between broccoli, cucumbers and grape tomatoes. I buy the plastic tubs of tomatoes and eat them like candy…they are sweet to me. The other night at dinner, I told Richard that lettuce tastes sweet to me and he looked at me like I was crazy. Maybe my reincarnated self will be a rabbit.

W-Worst Habit: Picking at my fingernails/cuticles, and saying the word, “actually.”

X-X-rays or Ultrasounds? This is a weird question…who knows? I guess ultrasounds. I’ve only had a couple in my life for various reasons and it was pretty cool to see things live and moving!

Y-Your Favorite Foods: P.F. Chang, Pei Wei, pho, Kabuki…pretty much anything Asian, Olive Garden.

Z-Zodiac: Aries

  2. Fun! I might have to steal it too.

    And I am totally the same way with the mail. It's funny because now Elizabeth always wants to check the mail. Yesterdy when she heard me open the front door, she came running, screaming, "I'll get the mail!!" "Chill out Meg Ryan!" was how I replyed.

  3. Great game...I want to play!! Also - I stole your shelfari, cool, cool.

  4. Love this post- you have supplied me my past two post ideas- thanks! Love getting the mail too, and I taught my dogs and now my daughter to love it too. It's free and exciting, what more could we ask for?

  5. That was cute to learn the ABC's of you.

  6. Charla that was fun! BUT, I think I will pass on the abc's of helen K. i am just not near as fun as you. you are too cute!
