These get-to-know-each-other-via-the-alphabet-game posts are popping up all over yonder. I’ve been tagged a couple of times (thank you, Tiffany and Jen D), and decided to oblige. So here ya go… The A-B-C’s of me.
A. Attached or Single? Attached. But not like, literally. Just taken. We’re two separate beings. Each with our own limbs.
B. Best Friend? I have so many. Kevin’s my ultimate best friend – which is good because I feel like a husband should serve double-duty as a best friend. Tiff knows pretty much everything about me (and still loves me). Shawna is my fashion-makeup-work-gossip-neighbor bestie. Joy makes me laugh and gives me a reality check exactly when I need it. My sister is my sister and a best friend by blood – love it when God assigns best friends as family.
C. Cake or Pie? Pie. But really only the crust.
D. Day of Choice? Monday. I can’t get enough of it. I loooove it when I have a case of the Monday’s. It’s such a rush.
Saturday. Saturday is my day of choice.
E. Essential Item? Sadly — my iPhone. But really – it has everything! Books, music, games, a connection to people I love…
F. Favorite Color? Green.
G. Gummy bears or worms? Worms. I like to create little gummy rings out of them.
H. Hometown? A small town in NM.
I. Favorite Indulgence? Mint Three Musketeer candy bars. I can’t stop myself from devouring an entire bag of the fun size bars. True story. It ain’t pretty.
J. January or July? This is a little tough because January is my birthday month and I like how it feels like such a clean, fresh start with the new year. But I hate being cold. So I have to go with July (which just so happens to be my half-birthday month, so there’s still a party) unless I’m in Hawaii or the southern hemisphere where it would be warm in January.
K. Kids? Two sweet cat kids. I adore them.
L. Life isn’t complete without? Breathing. It’ll pretty much stop if you don’t breathe.
M. Marriage Date? May 24, 2013
N. Number of Brothers and Sisters? 2 half sisters
O. Oranges or Apples? I’m not big on fruit. Unless they’re in pie. Except we already determined that I really only like the crust and not the fruit in pie.
Ironically, apple pie is my favorite pie if I had to choose a fruit filling. But I like fresh squeezed orange juice a lot. So let’s call it a draw.
P. Phobias? Snakes. Actually just reptiles in general. I found Costa Rica to be a little nerve-racking – never know when an iguana is gonna step right out in front of ya.
Q. Quotes? “I have no respect for a man who can spell a word only one way.” – Mark Twain (Helps me rationalize my spelling issues.)
And – “I would like to be remembered as a decent human being and a caring one.” – Grace Kelly
R. Reasons to Smile? How much time do you have? That would be quite a list. And smile lines are so much better for aging than frown lines, so that’s a good reason in itself!
S. Season of Choice? I like bits and pieces of each. Summer – long days and warmth. Spring – pretty blossoms and the promise of summer. Fall – pretty colors and the warm days with crisp nights. Winter – clothes (scarves, boots, etc.)
T. Tag 5 people: Everyone play along!
U. Unknown Fact about Me: I can pop both of my big toes out of joint. It’s cute.
V. Vegetable? I love squash. Mmm. Any kind of squash. Acorn squash, butternut squash, zucchini squash, yellow squash… Bubba has shrimp, I have squash.
W. Worst Habit? W is for worrying. I’m a worrier.
X. X-Ray or Ultrasound? There is a time and a place for each.
Y. Your favorite food? Homegrown tomatoes, fresh off the vine. And pasta. Oh and garlic. I LOVE garlic. Seriously – I eat roasted garlic by the bulb. Don’t worry – I also love breath mints.
Z. Zodiac Sign? Capricorn.
