ABC's of Me

I saw this on Melissa's blog (thanks Melissa!). She borrowed it from Double The Fun and it just looked like fun so I thought I'd participate and share the ABC's of Me.

A. Age: 34
B. Bed size: Queen
C. Chore you dislike: Doing dishes and putting laundry away.
D. Dogs:  Nope. I like dogs well enough, but I don't want to take care of one. 
E. Essential start to your day: A shower. I function way better when I'm clean.
F. Favorite colors: Pink and purple. I'm such a girl :)
G. Gold or silver: Silver. I've started to buy some fashion jewelry in gold finally, but I definitely prefer silver. 
H. Height: 5'4"
I. Instruments you play(ed): Clarinet - a long, long time ago.
J. Job title: MOM! My degree is in technical writing, but I doubt I'll ever go back to that.
K. Kids: 3 - Braeden, Evan and Maggie

L. Live: Massachusetts. I have moved around as an adult, but I have settled back in my home town now for good. 
M. Mom’s name: Paula
N. Nicknames: Not so much.
O. Overnight hospital stays: When I had my kids and a 1 night stay when I had surgery at 21.
P. Pet peeves: People who can't find things to be happy about. There has to be more to life than complaining. Also, I really hate when someone empties the trash and doesn't put a new bag in.
Q. Quote from a movie: "And that is why that no work" - My Big Fat Greek Wedding. It's not particularly funny or poignant, but it is hilarious to Roman and I and we tend to say it whenever something doesn't, or isn't going to work out. 
R. Righty or lefty: Both. Yep, it confuses me too. Poor Braeden is the same way.
S. Siblings: 1 brother
T. Time you wake up: That all depends on my children. I would prefer to sleep until 8, but I'm usually up between 6:30 and 7:30. I'm not a great morning person.
U. Underwear: Finances, being a mom, and little desire to go the mall has made me a Hanes girl. 
V. Vegetables you don’t like: Brussel sprouts, squash.. I like to stick to the basics - peas, corn and carrots and broccoli.
W. What makes you run late: Sometimes my kids, but I am usually very punctual. I detest being late. 
X. X-rays you’ve had: Dental and my lower leg in high school.
Y. Yummy food you make: I just found a recipe for a peanut butter cheesecake that is amazing. I'm more of a baker than a real food maker.   
Z. Zoo animal you like: Zebras and Giraffes. I look forward to seeing those two at the zoo more than any others, though I love the zoo and am never disappointed by any of the animals.

    That cheesecake sounds delicious! I also love tigers and giraffes. You really can't go wrong with the zoo :)
