ABCs

Idea for post stolen from Two Adults, One Brown Baby. Fun idea!

A to Z

A. Age: 32 (for a few more weeks)

B. Bed size: California King. For our first real bed purchase from a real mattress store, we decided to go big or go home. All beds seem so small now.

C. Chore that you hate: Taking out the trash. And cleaning the kitty box. And cleaning the toilet. Basically anything that has me fighting my gag reflex.

D. Dogs: Our sweet beagle Newton who now lives with Grandma and Grandpa in Wisconsin because Brien and Bowie were too allergic. Miss you, love bug!

E. Essential start to your day: Tea. I literally don’t do anything in the morning until I have that first cup of Earl Grey in my hand.

F. Favorite color: Tiffany blue.

G. Gold or silver: Silver

H. Height: 5’4″

I. Instruments that you play: Piano. Haven’t really sat down to play in a long time though, unfortunately. Also, started the mandolin a while back, and then, well, motherhood.

J. Job title: Officially: Stay at Home Mom. Once upon a time, I was Editor. But, I got laid off. Still a Writer on occasion. Working on some other stuff too. Stay tuned.

K. Kids: The Bow-man. 3 and 3/4 years old (omg).

L. Live: San Francisco

M. Mother’s name: Shelly (and she’s a Very Bloggy reader. Watch for her comments!)

N. Nicknames: Wethie. It’s a long story.

O. Overnight hospital stays: Just when Bowie was born. Though, I SHOULD have been in the hospital after 8 days of battling salmonella at home, but they thought I had the flu.

P. Pet peeves: Not using turning signals. Fishing for compliments. Bad grammar.

Q. Quote from a movie: Funny, but so true. Sums up my life view pretty well: “Life is full of misery, loneliness, and suffering – and it’s all over much too soon.” –Woody Allen (Annie Hall)

R: Right or left handed: Right

S: Siblings: Three younger brothers, two older stepbrothers.

T. There wasn’t anything for T. I’m going with Tequila? Yes, please.

U. Underwear: Heather grey. Like the rest of my wardrobe.

V. Vegetable(s) you hate: Onions. Cooked greens (I love greens, but hate when they get soggy).

W. What makes you run late: When Bowie refuses to get shoes on / get clothes on / get into the car.

X. X-rays you’ve had: My hand, when I was a wee one. A window came smashing down on it. But it was not broken. Also, lots of feet X-rays, I have crazy messed-up feet, both have been operated on. My arthritic knee. My wrist, which ended up just having tendonitis. And, dental X-rays. Does an ultrasound count? Had a few of those.

Y. Yummy food that you make: Chicken Apple Basil Salad. A recipe I took from Real Simple and changed to suit my tastes. It’s a crowd pleaser.

Z. Zoo animal: Elephants, they’re my favorite. I also like the big cats and the giraffes. And I could sit and watch meerkats all day. I really love the zoo. And we recently got a membership, I’m super excited about that.

  1. do you like heather gray or just evolved into it? Glad you got the Zoo membership, I love Zoos & parades…
    I enjoyed reading this!

    1. Hmm…good question. I had this grey tshirt in high school that I LOVED and it got all holey and gross and I had to toss it out. After that I just started buying everything that came in that color, I definitely developed a penchant for it over time. I think I just like that it’s basic, but more exciting than white or black, and it goes with any other color.

  2. You were in the hospital for 3 days when you were four. It took the docs that long to figure out you had a bladder infection!

  3. Hi! I’m a stranger. Just found your blog. I love heather grey. I can’t stand when people don’t use their turn signal…and people that fish for compliments. I have two little boys. I had a miscarriage in between. I live in Ohio. We may move to San Francisco. If we do..can we be friends? 😉
