a to z of m.e.

I found this A to Z of me post over at A Sorta Fairytale, and thought it would be fun to copy, paste and share it with you!  { with my own answers, of course!  not hers. }  If you decide to copy, paste and share on your own blog, please leave a link in the comments.  I'd love to get to know YOU!

A. Age: 28...for 23 more days!  But who is counting?
B. Bed size: Queen, and it almost takes up the entire room.  Thankfully my dressers are built-ins to save space!
C. Chore that you hate: I hate loading the dishwasher.  And scrubbing the shower.  And making dinner.  And...
D. Dogs:  None!  Even if you swear you'll never let your dog sleep in your bed when you first bring it home, it will always end up there eventually.  And that grosses me out.  So we'll just stick with no dogs.  Period.
E. Essential start to your day:  Coffee while checking e-mail, FB and blogs, of course!  I make breakfast for my boys in there somewhere, too.
F. Favorite color:  Purple!  And I have a real good reason for that. 
G. Gold or Silver: Silver
H. Height: 5'7"
I. Instruments you play:  None, although I have been told I have "piano fingers", what does that mean, anyway?
J. Job title:  Work at home mom, Etsy shop owner, volunteer event coordinator for my local MOPS group.
K. Kids:  My sweet boy, Mason.  He's 4 1/2.  My funny boy, Avery.  He's almost two.
L. Live:  The beautiful, green Western Washington!
M. Mother’s name:  Donette.  My boys call her Gwamma and Momma.  We're still getting used to the last one!
N. Nicknames: James
O. Overnight hospital stays:  Plenty.  Twice for birthing my babe-uhs, and about semi-annually for kidney stones.
P. Pet peeves:  Is there a limit for how many characters can be in a blogger post?  Anyone?  Anyone?  I guess I'm kind of irritable, because I have a lot of pet peeves.  But the first thing that comes to mind { because it's lunch time } are the sounds people make while eating.
Q. Quote from a movie:  "I love to smile, smiling is my favorite!" -Will Farrell in 'Elf'.  Pretty much anything Will Farrell or Vince Vaughn say makes my day.
R. Right or left handed: Right handed.
S. Siblings:  Four younger half-siblings: Zach, Jake, Scott and Danica.  And a boat load of step-siblings.
U. Underwear:  Yes, please.  The bigger and more cotton-y, the better.
V. Vegetable you hate: that a veggie?
W. What makes you run late:  Over-sleeping.  Always.  Always-always.
X. X-Rays you’ve had: Dental, Collar bone, and Pelvic (kidney stones) 
Y. Yummy food that you make:  Most of the delicious things I make are hand-me-down recipes from my grandmothers or my mom.  Maybe I'll post my favorite ones soon!
Z. Zoo animal: Baby ones.  If you're ever in the PNW, visit Northwest Trek and take the tram ride.  It is especially awesome in the spring season when the babies are running around everywhere!

So there you have it.  A to Z of me.  


  1. Love this! I am going to do it too if you don't mind. :)

  2. Hi Mindy! Yes, do it! Then come back and share the link so I can read. =)

  3. oooh, i love mandy!! she is one of my blogger friends turned real life friends :)

    this was fun, & i totally laughed at the "noises people make while eating" comment. you crack me up.

  4. Man, I closed this out before I used the securty thing. Short and sweet...the noises that people's a wonder I'm not skinnier! If I allow myself to hear those I'd lose my appetite every time! Charlie sleeps with the boys (GAG!) but that took some doing and the ONLY reason I allow that is because Charlie snores and makes sounds that make me want to puke...I was DONE!

  5. Anita, I don't know what it is about my kids, but I think the noises they make when they eat are SO cute. It's weird. Also, I really really like your dog for some reason. I MIGHT let him sleep at the foot of my bed. Maybe. ;)
