My ABC's

I am such a slacker these days! It seems like I always have a million other things to do besides write a post. But, my BBF (Bestest Bloggy Friend) Deanna did this fun ABC thing and I figured it was quick enough for me to do and not lose too much sleep!

So here we go!!

A - Age: 33 and 3/4. My birthday is July 2nd. I'm giving you plenty of advance warning to get me the perfect gift!!

B - Bed size: King. And I am spoiled FOREVER now! I love my husband, but I am not a snuggler. All I want when I sleep is my own personal space. He still doesn't quite get it after almost 12 years of being married to me.

C - Chore you hate: All of them. Seriously. But toilets are the worst! BLECH

D - Dad's Name: William

E - Essential start your day item: Coffee. Buckets of it.

F - Favorite tv show?: Big Love. If you don't watch it, you need to! It is SO good!

G - Gold or Silver: I don't care if it's out of fashion--I love Yellow Gold. Always have.

H - Height: YOU NEVER ASK A LADY'S HEIGHT! What? Oh... I'm 5'5.

I - Instruments you play(ed): Violin and piano with proficiency, but in college I had to learn how to play every single instrument in order to get my Bachelor of Music. Marimba, clarinet, trumpet (which I really sucked at, but my teacher told me not to feel bad--I have a faulty embouchure), trap set (which I sucked at even worse than trumpet and I didn't have an anatomical flaw)--you name it--I learned how to play it!

J - Job title: Domestic Diva, Houseblogger, and Midget's Mom

K - Kid(s): Midget and the Wieners

L- Living arrangement: Have I told you I love my house? I love it so much! It has an open floor plan on the ground floor and small rooms upstairs (except the Master), so both hubby and I were pleased.

M - Mom's name: Same as my real name.

N - Nicknames: Carrie, Care, Care-bear, The Ice Queen, and Mouth.

O - Overnight hospital stays other than birth: None yet.

P - Pet Peeve: People who always need some sort of fake crisis going on in their lives to feel alive. I can't stand the drama!!

Q - Quotes you like: "The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not." Thomas Jefferson Quite timely, eh??

R - Right or left handed: Right handed. A violin teacher of mine once told me to do everyday things with your non-dominant hand to help improve your dexterity. I still brush my teeth with my left hand!

S - Siblings: Three sisters and one brother--all over the country! One sister is in Houston, TX, another sister is in Helena, MT, and one sister is in Denver, CO. My younger brother is in Oklahoma City, OK.

T - Time you wake up: Whenever my screaming alarm clock named Midget wails loud enough to drag my sorry a** out of bed. Usually between 7:30 or 8:30.

U- Ultimate Dessert: I'm not a big dessert eater, though you wouldn't know it by looking at me. In fact, I can't really think of anything I really love. Do Swedish Fish count??

V - Vegetable you dislike: I don't like bell peppers or tomatoes very much, but I eat them. The only vegetable I refuse to eat is Beet Greens. GROSS!!

W - Ways you run late: Pretty much all ways and always. I am always at least 10 minutes late to everything and if I tell someone I am always 10 minutes late, then I'm 10 minutes late past the 10 minutes late I was already going to be! Speaking of late, I still haven't sent out the interview questions to the people who said "interview me." I haven't forgotten--I'm just doing it on "Carrie" Time.

X - X-rays you've had: In 8th grade, I broke my collarbone skiing. That's the only X-ray I've ever had.

Y - Yummy food you make: I love to cook, so I make lots of good stuff!

Z - Zoo Animal: Have you ever watched the seals snort? It's terrifically entertaining!

Okay, so now it's your turn to do your ABC's!! Play along if you want--I won't break your knuckles if you don't.

How fun is that! I may have to do this sometime next week. Right now, I am off to find me a bucket of coffee -- does Starbucks sell a bucket o' joe?? They need to!

Fun meme, but far too long for my ant-sized attention span.

You're so funny! But, whaddya mean you don't like beet greens?? That's one of my fav; I like that you can eat the whole darn beet, leaves and roots!
