Now You Know My ABCs

Kelli at KelliBelly tagged me for this A to Z meme. It made me realize I’ve never written one of those “100 Things About Me” posts and I’ve been blogging for over a year. Hmmmm. I’ll get right on that. Some day.

A- Available or married? Married 10 years ago this spring. We’ve known each other for 20 years. Obviously we met when we were 5. Cough.
B- Best Friend? Besides my husband, and yes he really is my best friend, my longtime friend Amy. We met in 4th grade. I believe that was the year the Grease soundtrack was all the rage and I had a collection of scratch ‘n sniff stickers on my notebook.
C – Cake or Pie? Cake, preferably chocolate, although I love key lime pie, preferably while in Key West.
D- Drink of Choice? A margarita if I am indulging. If not, water with lemon or Coca Cola straight up.
E- Essential Item? My car. Have you ever been without your car for a few days? Eeek.
F- Favorite Color? Sage green.
G- Gummi Bears or Worms? Da bears. I don’t like worms in any variety.
H- Hometown? Somewhere in Tennessee where monster trucks, chewing tobacco, and barbecue rule. Suddenly I feel like I am channeling Garrison Keillor.
I- Indulgence? Massages and shopping recreationally with no vanilla wafers, juice boxes, or butt ointment on my shopping list. I know. I was only supposed to list one indulgence, but I thought I’d throw in a bonus item.
J- January or February? February. Valentine’s Day is much fun with two little girls and I can start the count down to spring.
K- Kids & names? Caitlin Marguerite and Amelia Grace.
L- Life is incomplete without? My family.
M- Marriage Date? May 3
N- Number of Siblings? Four!
O- Oranges or apples? Apples
P- Phobias/Fears? Heights.
Q- Favorite Quote? “Mommy, you are the bestest mommy.”
R- Reason to Smile? Walking in the den the other night and seeing Caitlin standing and holding baby sister in an affectionate embrace “just because.”
S- Season? Spring.
T- Tag three people! Liza, Nicole, and Charla.
U- Unknown fact about me: I dislocated my knee in 1989 and had to wear a leg brace to keep my knee from bending for about 6 weeks. In July. The brown Chevy Citation I was driving at the time, most fabulous for the single college girl, had no air conditioning. I repeat…July and no air conditioning and sweaty leg brace. I had a 45-minute interstate commute to my college internship at a community newspaper. I hobbled around like Mrs. Frankenstein for 6 weeks.
V- Vegetable you hate? Cauliflower.
W- Worst habit? Lack of patience with my kids.
Y- Your favorite food? It’s a toss up between Mexican and Italian.
Z- Zodiac? Leo. Rowwrrrr.

    Now you’re over 1/4 of the way to that 100 things list!

    Very few people around here get married on May 3. If it’s on a Saturday, it’s Derby Day and nothing is available!

  2. Liza says:

    oh, I like this meme. I’d be mental blogging today and will post tonight.

    love your letter R! yes, those Kodak moments makes mommy hearts ponder 🙂 “just because”…

    I love your girls’ names. Have I told you that lately?

    And this made me giggle: Married 10 years ago this spring. We’ve known each other for 20 years. Obviously we met when we were 5. Cough. Because it’s true, obviously.

  4. Charla says:

    I finally got a chance to get mine posted…I started it this afternoon, but got side-tracked by a pep rally this afternoon. (FUN. TIMES.)

    Thanks for the tag :o)

    I love Caitlin’s middle name Marguerite! It’s beautiful. Is she named after someone? I love key lime pie too. My brothers live in the keys and I brought key limes and key lime juice home to make pies. They were heavenly! Thanks for playing along . XOXOXO

    Marguerite was my husband’s maternal grandmother’s name. Thanks!

    Your brothers live in the keys? Oh…I’d be visiting them OFTEN.
