Brown Eyed Girl Jenn did this post earlier today and I thought it was fun, I haven't done a meme in ages, and I have a handful of new followers who may like to know useless information about me, so I figured what the heck? Might as well steal it. Thanks, Jenn!
The ABCs of yours truly!
A. Age-- 23. I'll be 24 on May 20th (I love surprises in the mail, hint hint ;)) and some days I can't believe I'm that old, while others, I can't believe I'm that young.
B. Bed size-- Queen and it's the most heavenly thing in the world, which is great, but also bad, because it is nearly impossible to pull myself out of bed every morning... or afternoon.
C. Chore you dislike-- Cleaning the shower would probably be my least favorite. I have a shower/tub combo and I really just hate getting on my hands and knees and scrubbing the bejeezus out of the thing. Plus, I feel like I smell like Clorox for the next 3 showers.
D. Dogs-- I have two fur babies, you can read about them here. Murphy is a bichon/poodle mix and Macklin is a bichon/cocker spaniel mix. My first dog was an English Cocker Spaniel and my second dog was an American Cocker Spaniel. Cocker's and Bichon's are probably my favorite, but my dream is to own an Old English Sheepdog.
E. Essential start to your day-- Breakfast of some sort and a glass of milk.
F. Favorite color-- I just really don't think I could say I have a favorite, favorite. Just like every song on the radio is my favorite. Too many to chose from, but I do love light green.
G. Gold or Silver-- it depends on what I'm wearing, as some things call for gold and others call for silver, but most of my jewelry is silver or white gold.
H. Height-- 5'9"
I. Instrument's you played-- I took piano lessons for 6 or so years. I can still fiddle around with it, but I'm not going to be performing a concert anytime soon (try not to cry too hard). I'd actually really, really like to take lessons again someday.
J. Job Title-- I'm sort of a nanny. I really don't know what to call it. Babysitter sounds so juvenile, but I don't feel like I'm a nanny anymore. Childcare provider? Rugrat Wrangler?
K. Kids-- none that call me mom on the daily, but many that I love and care for. I hope to have 4 of my own someday.
L. Live-- in a suburb of Indianapolis. There's about 75,000 residents and the most round-about's in the nation in my city. If I'm "forced" to live in Indiana, I wouldn't want to live in any other city than where I do currently, that's for darn sure.
M. Mom's name-- Susan. Most call her Susie, but I call her Ma, Mimi, Mother, Suz, and Momma Fancypants.
N. Nicknames-- Mar (like you'd pronounce Mar of Mars), Mare (like you pronounce Mar of Marianne), Peach, Dolly, Lacy Panties (yes, I'm serious).
O. Overseas Travel-- none. I've been to Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean (as of March, 2011), and 18 states (not counting ones I've had lay-overs or driven through).
P. People you Admire-- anyone that is selfless, honest, hard working, dedicated, loving, compassionate, and strives to be the best person they can be.
Q. Quote from a Movie-- "Frankly, my dear, I just don't give a damn."
R. Righty or Lefty-- Righty, and very much right dependent.
S. Siblings-- 1 brother, Craig, he'll be 26 at the end of July.
T. Time you wake up-- depends on what my day looks like. If I have to babysit in the morning, by 8. If I don't have to be up for anything, whenever my heart desires... which is usually something crazy, like 11.
U. Underwear-- yes, I wear underwear. No, you may not see it.
V. Vegetables you don't like-- I'm really picky about veggies and how they're prepared, but ones I absolutely cannot stand are brussel sprouts, any kind of bean but black & green (if cooked the right way), peas, beats, baby corn (gross!), not a big avocado fan (is that a veggie or a fruit?), or mushrooms.
W. What makes you run late-- ha, everything. It's a rare occurrence when I'm not a couple minutes late. Horrible habit that's terribly rude, but I think most people just accept it and move on, fully knowing that I will, in fact, be late for my own funeral.
X. X-rays-- good Lord, too many to count. Chest (several), teeth, back (several), knee (several), ankle/foot, brain (maybe? definitely had an MRI), hand/fingers. Probably my entire body has been x-rayed at some point.
Y. Yummy food you make-- Not to toot my own horn, but I'm pretty good in the kitchen, so I'd say most things I throw together turn out well, whether that's baking or cooking.
Z. Zoo animal favorites-- giraffe's & elephant's.
Also, I found a blog yesterday that I absolutely fell in love with and wanted to share with you guys. She's a (traveling) NICU nurse and has a great style of writing and is an amazing photographer. Sometimes I just feel compelled to share the greatness of others with people, and today? I feel compelled. So go show Jocelyn @ Suburbs of Utopia some lovin'. I dare you to not like her.
Happy Thursday, y'all!
