I am super busy for a couple of days, and I just happen to have major writer's block, so today you get the ABCs of me.
A- Age: 29. 30 is going to be the best birthday yet!! (I'm psyching myself up. I have a fear of aging and death. I always have)
B - Bed size: Queen. the box spring is an actual box. My grandpa nailed it together for the actual purpose of it fitting our bed frame. We think it's cool.
C - Chore you hate: Hmmm. Mopping, sweeping, ironing, the general cleaning up after everyone CONSTANTLY.
D - Dog's name: We had a basset hound named Flash that died when I was 16. She looked just like the basset on Dukes of Hazard. Miss her.
E - Essential start your day item: kitchen HAS to be clean so that I can enjoy breakfast first thing in the morning.
F - Favorite color: Orange
G - Gold or Silver or Platinum: I guess Silver. I don't wear jewelry hardly ever except for my wedding ring and bands. I love it because HF designed it and had it made. I didn't do the whole ring shopping thing. He surprised me. (It's White Gold)
H - Height: 5'3"
I - Instruments you play: piano and organ. Had a music scholarship. Dropped out of the program after a year. Hated it. Wasn't me. Now I play the organ for our church. I get a bad case of stage fright every Sunday morning. My mother-in-law gave me a banjo one year and I'm learning to play that. LOVE the banjo. HF is teaching me. He's the super musical one. He plays guitars, harmonica, anything he touches pretty much.
J - Job title: Wife, Mother, Police Wife, etc.
K - Kid(s): Daisy (6), Luke (3), Beau (7 months now!) Recognize their names from a certain tv show? (Dukes of Hazard incase you didn't know-and no those aren't their real names)
L - Living arrangements: 3 story townhouse in the city, can't wait until we move into our own home.
M - Mom's name: Marla
N - Nicknames: Brothers call me Chum. They always have. Sometimes Chum-a-lum.
O - Overnight hospital stay other than birth: No
P - Pet Peeve: I try and try and try to not let things bother me, but oh honey! Where to begin. I'll just say my most recent. People who give a recipe a negative review on Allrecipes.com when they state in the comments that they "made the following changes. . ." Don't rate a recipe, especially giving it a negative review, if you haven't tried the recipe exactly as it was intended! If it didn't turn out good, maybe it's because you didn't follow the instructions! I'm done.
Q - Quote from a movie: I don't know why, but we quote Nacho Libre a lot. "Anaconda squeeze!" or "Do you not realize I have had diarhea since Easters?" There's too many. See here.
R - Right handed or left handed: Right. HF is left-handed. But can do most with either hand. He's had a it of trouble getting left handed things for law enforcement.
S - Siblings: 4 brothers and 1 sister. My sister is the oldest. I am the youngest. She and I weren't close until we were adults. Too many brother between us I guess.
T - Time you wake up: Usually between 7 and 8. It's random. I think the kids are starting to get up with the sun. I need to get a blackout shade.
U- Underwear: A lady never discusses her underwear!
V - Vegetable you dislike: Beets or pickled beets! My family on both sides love their pickled beets! I can't stand them. No matter the coaxing I will not eat them. I've tried them and the answer is still no! Bunch of Dwight Schrutes. That's what they are.
W - Ways you run late: Having little kids and being OCD about everything being perfect before I can leave.
X - X-rays you've had: ankle, teeth
Y - Yummy food you make: I love to cook and bake. I'd say I make an amazing French apple pie, and I love making Indian food and naan to go with it.
Z - Zoo favorite: Sorry, I am actually anti zoo! I feel bad for the animals and want to set them free even though often they are rescued and given another chance at life, etc. I am also anti circus. I don't protest or anything, I just choose not to participate. I've been to a circus a couple of times and it's nothing like Dumbo.
