Now I know my ABC’s, next time won’t you sing with meeeeeeeeee!
Happy Friday everybody! And no, I didn’t totally forget my alphabet. I’ve been seeing this “ABC’s of Me” around blogworld the past few days and well, I’m a total sucker for survey type thingies so I thought I’d join in!
Also, since I had the day off, I HAD to hit up my two favorite foodie establishments: Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods! More on that in a minute, but first let me see if I do still remember the alphabet!
A. Age: 26 years old
B. Bed size: King, though once my ex and I split all the furniture, I will have a queen which is what I prefer. I only use 1/3 of the bed I have now!
C. Chore you hate: Cleaning the bathtub/shower! I usually just go ahead and start cleaning in my skimpies…I’ll end up getting a shower before it’s all over with anyways, might as just well go with it!
D. Dogs: LOVE them, but I just don’t have the time it takes to have one of my own right now. Besides, Tiger would be SUPER jealous!!
E. Essential start to your day: BREAKFAST!! Sweet, savory, gimme gimme!
F. Favorite color: Green…like mo-nay!
G. Gold or Silver: Silver
H. Height: 5″7′ I’m the shortie in the family. My dad is 6″1′, mom and sis are both 5″8′!
I. Instruments you play: I was in the band in middle school and used to play the flute…can’t remember a single note now, but I can play a mean “Twinkle Twinkle” on the piano!
J. Job title: Computed Tomography Technologist…sounds so much smarter than CAT scan tech!
K. Kids: None and there probably won’t ever be any. I just don’t really think I want to have children and it’s taken some time but my mom has finally accepted that fact and claims Tiger as her “grand-kitty”!
L. Live: Hickville, Tennessee
M. Mom’s name: Janine
N. Nickname: It’s kind of sad that I really don’t have a nickname other than the occasional Heather ______ (insert word that rhymes with Heather…people are so original!)
O. Overnight hospital stays: Once when I was about 4 or 5. I tripped and fell at an amusement park and ended up with quite the “goose egg” on my forehead. They kept me overnight to be sure I didn’t have a concussion.
P. Pet peeve: When people hold their eating utensils like a shovel, aka “caveman style”
Q. Quote from a movie: “Am I that transparent? I want you…I need you…oh baby, oh baby!” from “Ten Things I Hate About You” which will ALWAYS be my favorite movie! I can practically recite every line!
R. Righty or Lefty: Righty
S. Siblings: One younger sister, Tori, whom most of you have “met”
T. Time you wake up: Depends on what shift I’m working that week, but normally between 5 and 6am on the weekdays and usually 7:30 on the weekends (because I’m an old lady that doesn’t know how to sleep late!)
U. Underwear: Cute, preferably Victoria’s Secret
V. Vegetables you don’t like: There aren’t very many, but I don’t care for radishes or frisee lettuce
W. What makes you run late: My computer…note to self: stop checking email/reading blogs in the morning
X-rays you’ve had: Lots of CXR’s (chest x-rays) as an infant (premie baby=sickly baby), knee, shoulder, ankle, hip, pelvis, toe, finger. I told you guys that I’m accident prone!
Z. Favorite zoo animal: Cheetahs!
Ok, that was fun! Now, onto the grocery treasures! Forgive the bad lighting. Heavy traffic coming home=diminishing daylight for foodie pics upon arrival at la casa!
Forgive me Joe, for I have sinned. It has been one whole month since I have set foot on your lovely foundation. I swear I did 15 “hail Mary’s” on the way through the door! 😉
