There's Something About: The ABCs of Me

Ok, I'm trying out Maria's ABC's post. Check her out - she's totally cute! However, I, on the other hand, still feel like I have no idea what I'm doing, but here goes!

Age: Um, really? Ok, 39 (choke).

Bed size: King - after baby #3, I decided it was a must!

Chore you hate: Putting away laundry - it'll sit on the couch or in a basket for days sometimes.

Drink of choice: Dr. Pepper is my fave, but I regularly drink lemon water now.

Essential start to your day item: My phone - I gotta feel like I can be reached, you know, in case of emergency. It has nothing to do with checking my blog, or Facebook, or Twitter, or...

Favorite color: Purple!

Gold or silver: Both, depends on the item.

Height: 5 feet - even. Yes, I know, I'm short.

Instrument(s) you play: Flute & clarinet in school, but I still pull out the flute once in a while.

Job: I work for an insurance adjuster - bookkeeper, secretary, office manager. You decide.

Kids: Buzz 14, Tink 8, Lightning 6 - check them out here!

Living arrangements: Husband, 3 kids, 1 dog and some fish in a 4-bed, 2.5 bath house.

Mom's name: Grandma - I don't have a nickname for her yet.

Nicknames: Michiko, I guess.

Overnight hospital stay other than birth: One night with Tink for dehydration when she was about 2yrs old. Otherwise, nothing else for me.

Pet Peeve: My kids leaving garbage all over the house; lights on when no one is in the room; when my stuff is moved on my desk and not put back where it goes.

Quote from a movie: My husband says I don't watch movies that are good enough to quote, but what does he know?!

Right or left handed: Right

Siblings: One younger sister

Time you wake up: 6:15 because apparently, Buzz needs to get to high school. Yuck!

Underwear: Of course!

Vegetable you hate: ONIONS!!!!! Can you tell I hate them?!

What makes you run late: Trying to do too much before it's time to leave.

Xrays you've had: Aside from dental xrays, broken pinky, sprained ankle, neck and back after car accidents (they weren't my fault).

Yummy food you make: Not much, but most recently chicken soup!

Zoo favorite: Tigers, monkeys, peacocks - I can't decide!

Hope you enjoyed finding out a little more about me. Let's hear about you!
And here's a pic of Tink and me at a baby shower this weekend. Just 'cause I know you gotta have some pics!


  1. Yay! Im glad you did this! Isnt it such a fun way to get to know people? ♥

    And ohhhh Peacock, why didnt I think of that one!? So pretty.
    I was nodding my head in agreement about the laundy, I am the same (with it sitting on the couch for days!) :( Ugh its aweful... I just put two couch loads away this afternoon - took me 2 1/2 hours! UGH!!
    Also, I must say, you do not look 39 (not that, thats even THAT old)! You look younger, rock your age and be proud Momma! Cause you look good, I would have guessed you were my age! ♥


    1. I was nervous to do this at first. But it's definitely fun. And I don't feel 39, that's for sure! But I can't decide if blogging is going to keep me young, or age me faster. I'm still trying to get the hand of everything. ;-)

  2. I found you through UBP and came across this post while browsing the site. I love filling out lists so will probably use this with a link-back to you. I'm an AF wife as well!
