It’s that time again to join in the fun of “Old School Blogging.” This month theme is the ABCs of blogging…the Alphabet Meme. There are 26 questions, each starting with a letter from the alphabet.
A. Attached or Single? Attached. Been with The Hubs for 10 years, nine of them married!
B. Best Friend? Is it bad to have a tie? The Hubs, who knows me better than me at times. I also have a good friend that I’ve known since I was 5 years old – there’s A LOT of history there. We may not talk every week or see each other a lot, but when we do, it’s like we were never apart. She’s the one person that when we talk it’s never forced and never superficial.
C. Cake or pie? Cake, and if I had a choice, cannoli filling and fresh whipped cream instead of butter cream frosting.
D. Day of choice? Friday.
E. Essential Item? iPhone and tissues.
F. Favorite color? I love pink, though I rarely wear it….but second would be emerald-green.
G. Gummy bears or worms? I don’t like Gummy candy – so neither.
H. Home town? I’m a total Jersey Girl. I was raised in a small town just outside of NYC called Leonia, NJ. My parents still live there! Now I live about 20 minutes north of there in what is called NJ’s Pascack Valley.
I. Favorite Indulgence? Catching up on my soap opera “The Young and the Restless,” which I’ve watched for the past 25 years (I’ve watched since I was 16!). I like to watch it alone so I can talk to the TV during the episode, like any of the actors/characters can hear me.
J. January or July? July. It’s the summer and it’s also my birthday month.
K. Kids? Yes, the loves of my life – my son & daughter.
L. Life isn’t complete without? The Hubs, kidlets and our crazy dog Bailey running around in the yard having fun.
M. Marriage date? November 13, 2004 (That’s the same day Star Jones got married. She had a lavish wedding and now she’s divorced. We had a small wedding with family & good friends and we’re still going strong!)
N. Number of brothers/sisters? 1 sister, 3 brother-in-laws & 2 sister-in-laws.
O. Oranges or Apples? Apples, though preferably with no skins.
P. Phobias? Bridges and tunnels….and yes, I have to across one or the other practically everyday to either I get to work or around where I live. You don’t want to see me on the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel….I am a total wreck.
Q. Quotes? Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards. – Soren Kierkgaard
“Do you understand the words that are coming out of my mouth?” Chris Tucker as Det. James Carter in Rush Hour (this is mostly directed to my kidlets)
R. Reasons to smile? Love from the family, a drawing/art project made especially for me by the kidlets, a good joke, a happy story, and a new purse!
S. Season of choice? Summer – because it’s outside & beach time! I also like early spring or fall when the weather is still a bit crisp, so we can sit outside by the fire pit.
U. Unknown fact about me? I only sleep in nightgowns – I can’t wear lounge/sweat pants or shorts PJ outfits, my legs feel too constricted under the sheets.
V. Vegetable? Green beans.
W. Worst habit? Always trying to stick to “my schedule” and getting frustrated when things aren’t going like I planned.
X. Xray or Ultrasound? I’ve had both, neither was an unpleasant experience – but I’ll say ultrasound because it was the first way I saw either of my kidlets!
Y. Your favorite food? Anything Italian, marinara sauce is the blood in my veins!
Z. Zodiac sign? Cancer – somebody’s birthday is coming up WOO HOO! 😉
