Alphabet Soup and my Announcement** if you can find it!

This has been floating around on some blogs I’ve been reading and thought it would be a good way for you all to learn a little more about me and for me to learn a little more about you! So please link up and share your Alphabet!

A – Age: 31, as of January 13th, what a good way to start the year, it’s gonna be a good one, I just know it!

B – Bed size: King, thank heaven!! I’m 5'9" and Hubs is 6'3", so it really was the best investment we made, totally worth the wait and space! Plus, we can snuggle with the kittens and still have room!

C – Chore you hate: Sad to say I kinda like chores, I think it’s the OCD neat-freak in me. Although I do usually have a pile of clean laundry that needs folding, so that’s probably my worst offense.

D – Dogs: No dogs until we have enough land they can run around on, we’re currently in a townhouse, but we do have two adorable kittens, Pips and Fakes and one awesome “dogson” Xander.

E – Essential Start your Day Item: Kiss from husband! Don’t go a morning without it.

F – Favorite Color: Blue, ocean, and sky-Bam! Say no more.

G – Gold or Silver: Depends on what I’m wearing…Now diamonds, that's an everday item!

H – Height, whoops already answered that, I love being tall!

I – Instruments you Play: Piano (still) and Clarinet, although let’s be honest, H.S. was a LONG time ago, so you probably don’t want to ask me to play now, it could get ugly…

J – Job Title: Landscape Designer

K** – Kids: As of August that’ll be ONE!!  I'm 21 weeks pregnant with our first baby!

L – Live: Virginia, the only two things that would make it better would be less traffic and being closer to swimable water.
M – Mom’s name: Patty, Patricia, Tat, Mom

N – Nickname: Oh boy-to be honest or not to be honest…Okayyy, honest, Hollywood, Mooch, Stretch, Lovebug and Dreamboat (yeah yeah, I’m being honest here alright cut me a break!) Ames, Eme, Aimilee, Aimes, Seester, Blondie

O – Overnight Hospital Stays: None so far thankfully, I’m sure that’ll change in August when we have our little one!

P – Pet Peeve: Negativity, towards others and just in general, it only brings everyone down!  People that drive BELOW the speed limit in the far left lane, holy wow that makes me mad!

Q – Quote from a Movie: So many good ones are involved in my daily life!! I’ll try to limit myself:
Are you two brothers (sisters)? No…YEAH! (and they high five) – A Night at the Roxbury
She takes spinning classes like they’re M&M’s –Just go With It

R – Right or Left Handed: Righty

S – Siblings: 1, younger sister by 2 years 11 months and she is awesome!! Love my Chick!

T – Time you wake up: In busy season usually 5:45 so I can hit the gym before arriving at work at 7, In the winter between 8 and 9, yay for seasonal work!

U – Underwear: When working out usually none, who wants to pull a wedgie out when you’re running, daily cotton-BOring I know, weekends, well now, that’s private! ;)

V – Vegetable you Dislike: Lately butternut squash, I think it’s the preggers hormones…But normally Okra, and yes, I even went to school in Charleston, sorry I just don’t dig it!

W – What makes you Late: Northern Virginia Traffic-ugh

X – X-Rays: Practically my whole body, dang you sports!

Y – Yummy Food you Make: When I cook (it’s usually Greg, I’m so spoiled) I make a mean butternut squash and sage lasagna, chicken and broccoli casserole, spaghetti sauce. But baking-look out, I LOVE to bake!! Here are my homemade carrott cake cupcakes I took to a housewarming last weekend.  Which is why I love to workout!
Z – Zoo Animal Favorite: Ooh, probably Giraffe’s they are TOO cute with their long graceful necks and good lookin spots, mm, mm! Although Elephants are good luck and they are actually quite gentle creatures for being so big. And maybe Penguins too, because they waddle and who doesn’t love that? Guess I’m an equal opportunity animal lover…
