A couple lovely blogs that I follow did this fun little questionnaire and I thought I would join along. Thank you Liz, Caitlin and Katie for the inspiration.
A. Age: 32
B. Bed size: king and so necessary with a husband, three kids and a dog. it's sad, but we could use a bigger bed.
C. Chore that you hate: toilets. i live with three boys....need i say more.
D. Dogs: must have. we have Bailey now, a dog i rescued on the highway. a couple years ago we had to put down our amazing yellow lab of ten years. still hard.
E. Essential start to your day: COFFEE. and then some more coffee. breakfast too.
F. Favorite color: turquoise and yellow.
G. Gold or Silver: these days i love gold but i wear both. even together. why not.
H. Height: 5’7" my mom and i are the shortest in the family.
I. Instruments you play: i played the piano for many many years in my childhood. i have not played since, although i still have a piano. it's currently stored at my parents. we may be starting joshua soon with piano lessons.

O. Overnight hospital stays: for me, only with childbirth. joshua was admitted to the hospital for five days when he was seven weeks old. i didn't leave his side.
P. Pet peeves: texting while driving. oh, and the sounds of nails being clipped. ask jon, it drives me crazy. styrofoam too.
Q. Quote from a movie: "hold fast to the human inside of you, and you will survive." it's from the diving bell and the butterfly. i don't know why, but when i heard that quote i ran and wrote it down in my journal.
R. Right or left handed: righty tighty.
S. Siblings: older sister and older brother.
U. Underwear: these days i'm about comfort since i'm running around all day with three kids. but i have to admit, there is something about pretty underwear and bras that make you feel good. so i splurge every once in awhile. if i'm having a rough day i put those on, even if it's under sweatpants and my favorite shirt, and i feel confident.
V. Vegetable you hate: honestly, i don't think there is one that i hate!
W. What makes you run late: umm... a house full of kids. i swear i used to be on time. now, i feel like i'm "that mom" who's running behind, rushed and half dressed carrying a kid under her arm and a coffee in her hand.
X. X-Rays you’ve had: teeth. for routine checkups and to check my two front teeth. i had a bad pool accident when i was little and my adult teeth were pushed back up into the gums.
Y. Yummy food that you make: i love to bake and cook, but i will admit that not everything turns out to my liking. i do make a killer vegan chocolate cake with chocolate icing. and before the no dairy i made a fabulous strawberry tiramisu
Z. Zoo animal: ocelots and antelopes. it's a phish thing.
