Russ is off working call at the hospital so that typically leads to me doing some no-so-productive things. Like this post. On the plus side, he only works 1 call shift this week. The bad side? He works 3 next week. Yikes. Who knows what will happen! (in my defense I went to yoga tonight, so it wasn't completely a waste of an evening and I'm actually surprisingly productive when he's on call)
So in the midst of my low productivity levels, I saw this little fill in floating around the blogosphere (on Becka and Alexandra's blog) and decided to try it out. Mostly to entertain myself.
So here we go!
A. Age: 26. I still have to think about it because I still want to answer 23, and in my head I still think I'm 5 so...
B. Bed size: Queen - and thanks to my Mom, Larry and Grandparents it's an amazing Sleep Number Bed. I have never slept better in my life.
C. Chore you hate: Cleaning bathrooms. And thanks to my amazing hubby I don't have to clean them - he cleans them & I take the kitchen. So the chore I hate that I actually help do? Cleaning up dog poop from our backyard. Makes me gag just thinking about it.
D. Dogs: Just one, Miley - she's our kid, only with 4 legs and extremely hairy.
E. Essential start to your day: Coffee and at least 2 cups of it.
F. Favorite color: Pink in any shade but not such a neon pink fan.
G. Gold or Silver: I go through phases. Currently it's gold.
H. Height: 5 feet 4.5 inches. That 1/2 inch makes all the difference in the world.
I. Instruments you play: I could play them well 5 years ago (not so much now but I'm working on it!), but I play the french horn and piano.
J. Job title: ESA - Executive Staff Assistant
K. Kids: hopefully someday. Miley fits the bill for now.
L. Live: ...every day like it's the last. But Missouri for those who want a more definite answer.
M. Married: Yup! Since 6-9-12 :)
N. Nicknames: I've never been a girl with nicknames. My freshman roomie Sarah called me Melo, so there's that.
O. Overnight hospital stays: None so far and would like to keep it that way.
P. Pet peeve: Loud eaters - it's gross, chew with your mouth closed pleaseandthankyou. And when people don't hold the door open for each other - where did all the manners go?!
Q. Quotes: "We must be our own before we can be another's" - Emerson
R. Righty or lefty: Righty.
S. Siblings: 1 - Nicole. She lives too far away (Texas) but I love that as we've gotten older we've become closer. Those teenage years were rouuugh ;) Plus, we are planning a trip to go and visit her in February!
T. Time you wake up: 5:53AM
U. University attended: University of Missouri - go Tigers!
V. Vegetables you dislike: Please don't hate me for saying this...kale. GASP! I know! The super food is the one vegetable I just can't get myself to liking. My stomach has issues whenever I eat it and I've tried it baked and crispy, in casseroles and in soups.
W. What makes you run late: during the week it's not preparing my lunch the night before. Any other time it could be anything from double-checking I turned my straightener off or running back upstairs to make sure I have bobby pins and a hair tie juuuust in case.
X. X-rays you've had: Just at the dentist. I think. There may have been an x-ray or two done growing up but they never lead to finding broken bones so I don't remember them.
Y. Yummy food: Anything with pasta. Or chocolate. Or strawberries. I like food.
Z. Zoo animal favorite: penguins. snow leopards. anything minus what's inside the reptile house.
