[Randomness] All About Me from A to Z

I saw this on Gigi's and Sara's blogs and thought I'd join in on the fun since I haven't really had a 'personal' post in a while.... hope you have fun reading it! 

A. Age: 28

B. Bed Size: Queen, it's perfect, but it does get a bit tight with two 20lb pups squeezing in for extra space.

C. Chore you dislike: Cleaning the shower.  You may remember if you been around for-ev-or that we renovated our master bath in late 2009.  To keep this pretty investment in tip top shape we have to squeegee the class after showers (to prevent hard water stains) and wipe down the tiles with a rag so the grout doesn't hold extra moisture and grow mold as quickly.  It's a pain in the arse and I try my hardest to time my showers right before my husband's so I don't have to wipe it down.  And since I clean the toilets, I make him scrub the grout when it is time for a real scrub down.

D. Dogs: Two!  Baxter, our 20lb 3 /12 year old Shih Tzu and Penny, our 20lb 2 year old Boston Terrier.  <3 them sooo much.

E. Essential start to your day:  Carnation Instant Breakfast while catching up on blog posts (yes, I'm an 8 year old).  I'm not a big breakfast eater... I'm not usually hungry until 10am, so I drink a instant breakfast at 8am before I head out the door and pack a second breakfast.. usually a piece of fruit or a greek yogurt parfait.

F. Favorite color: Blue.  However, my closet would show its white, grey, and navy...

G. Gold or silver:  Overall I like silver (or platinum) for my 'real' jewelry, but I usually buy gold costume.  My 'RHR' (right hand ring) is a family piece and is two tone along with my (broken) David Yurman bracelet, so I have no issue mixing and matching....

H. Height: 5'2".

I. Instruments you play(ed): Piano.  I also played the saxophone in 5th grade, but that was a bad idea.  Sorry mom.

J. Jelly bean flavor: The white ones....

K. Kids:  In an ideal setting, we'd love two of our own and would like to adopt a third.... after learning that life isn't always an 'ideal' setting, we'd still love two however we can get them.  And because everyone loves to talk about future kids names... my favorites are Ashlynn and either Ryan or Andrew...

L. Lucky number(s): 9 and 14.

M. Month:  Hmmm tough one... Probably September.  I love that its still warm, but that fall is near.  Also always bring back memories of going back to school and running around on the hockey field.

N. Nicknames:  Family calls me E. Friends call me Hayes.

O. Overnight hospital stays: None, unless you count when I was born where they held me for a few days since I had jaunice... yuck.

P. Pet peeves:  Ugh, so many! Right now most of them have to do with people bragging and/or complaining non-stop on Facebook.   The people bragging are overcompensating for their unhappiness and the people complaining are phishing for sympathy... I care for neither.

Q. Quote from a movie:  "That's so fetch."

R. Righty or lefty: Righty.

S. Siblings: one older brother.

T. Time you wake up: Usually at 7am.

U. Underwear: yes please.

V. Vegetables you don't like: hmmm, maybe beets and brussel sprouts.  I'll eat both, but don't really care for either.

W. What makes you run late: My husband.  I'm overly punctual.  Always have been... which gets annoying because I know I hate being the 1st person arriving some where.

X. X-rays you've had:  My back and teeth.

Y. Yummy food you make: see here ??   I like to think my talents are better for baking than cooking.

Z. Zoo animal favorites: Elephants!  Then monkeys (all primates), bears (mainly Pandas), and sea otters.

Tag!  Your turn Readers :)
