The ABCs of Me

(This was auto-posted, as I'm relaxing on the beach right now with my husband while my parents are watching both boys back at home!)

My friend Anna tagged me last week to do the ABCs of me, and I thought it would be kind of fun. I do love to talk about myself. LOL

A -Age: 32

B - Bed size: queen (Though right now at the beach, it's a king!!)

C - Chore you hate: cleaning floors

D - Dog's name: I had a dog once. His name was Barney. He jumped over the fence and attacked a neighbor girl who was taunting him, so we had to get rid of him. But truth be told, I am not a dog person. (Don't hate me!)

E - Essential start to your day: Matthew bringing both boys into the room where I'm dead asleep and dumping them both on the bed. It's great. :)

F - Favorite color: purple

G - Gold or silver: gold

H - Height: 5'11"

I - Instruments you play(ed): I took violin lessons for five years (2nd grade through 7th grade) and even went to violin camp for three summers. I also took piano lessons for a couple of years in elementary school, too.

J- Job title: Mommy

K - Kids: Andrew James (3/24/06) and Benjamin Matthew (4/24/08)

L - Living arrangements: Our dream house with a big yard in a small, quiet subdivision at the end of the cul-de-sac with a pond two houses away

M - Mom's name: Paula (and my dad's name is Paul...LOL)

N - Nicknames: I have several nicknames but none from more than one person. Matthew calls me "Babe" or "Sweets." My brother Justin calls me "Babes." My dad has a whole host of goofy nicknames from childhood that he still uses. Sometimes, when I'm in a good mood, I let him. ;)

O - Overnight hospital stay other than birth: Tonsillectomy when I was seven, two C-sections (four days each....I love me some hospital time!!!)

P - Pet Peeve: Incorrect spelling/grammar/punctuation (especially on printed documents or from establishments **cough**cough**Facebook**cough**cough, or from TEACHERS)

Q - Quote from a movie: "Don't you love New York in the fall? It makes me wanna buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address. On the other hand, this not knowing has its charms." Joe Fox, "You've Got Mail"

R - Right- or left-handed: right

S - Siblings: Two brothers: Michael (older by two years) and Justin (younger by 3 1/2 years)

T - Time you wake up: Generally at about 7:00 to 7:15 each day when Matthew dumps the boys on me and then heads to work. But this week?? Hmmm......never.

U - Underwear: clean

V - Vegetable you dislike: MUSHROOMS ARE DISGUSTING

W - Ways you run late: changing B's diaper, waiting for A to poop on the toilet (why do males take so long?), and just general "I-have-two-kids-and-it's-hard-to-get-out-of-the-house" stuff

X - X-rays you've had: arm, finger, teeth

Y - Yummy food you make: I make a mean cake, really yummy cake cookies, a sinfully delicious green bean casserole, addictive sausage balls, and a healthy and tasty Santa Fe Chicken dish.

Z - Zoo favorite: Umm....I don't remember the last time I went to a zoo.
