I worry that sometimes I am too much of an open book on this blog. It’s funny how in the blog world I feel freer to be my true self, confess real things, things I might not even tell my real-life girlfriends. (Although they might read it here. And somehow that’s OK!)
Things have been a little heavy here recently, so I thought you might enjoy a break from me ranting about being a working mom and take five minutes to read some random things about me.
A – Age: I’ll be 27 next month. For some reason, 27 sounds a whole lot more like 30 than 26, and that scares me!
B – Bed Size: Queen. I love our bed. Mmm, sleep …
C – Chore You Hate: All of them? Mostly I hate vacuuming/sweeping/anything that involves trying to keep the floor clean and devoid of crud. Although now without dog hair it looks a little better than it did.
D – Dad’s Name: Christopher. I wonder if he was named for someone. I don’t know. Dad?
E – Essential Start Your Day Item: E-mail? Yes, I have a sickness.
G – Gold or Silver: I’m more of a silver jewelry person, although I insist on wearing gold jewelry with brown clothes. My wedding rings are white gold.
H – Height: 5’3″
I – Instruments You Play(ed): I can plunk out stuff on the piano due to two years of piano lessons.
J – Job Title: Production Editor
K – Kid(s): Our darling Libbie, five months old and sweet as can be.
L – Living Arrangement: 1200 square foot condo outside Nashville. Small, but just right for now. And it has a big kitchen and pantry!
M – Mom’s Name: Donna
N – Nicknames: Jessie is my nickname (for Jessica). I always wanted a better nickname but no one ever gave me one. O – Overnight Hospital Stays Other Than Birth: Not that I remember. I may have stayed overnight when the dog tried to rip my ear off, but I don’t know.
P – Pet Peeve: simple grammar and spelling errors, people who giggle continually
Q – Quotes You Like: the quote on my work email is: “Every human being has value. This is the basis of all healthy relationships.” –Mr. Rogers
R – Right or Left-Handed: Right.
S – Siblings: One younger sister, Auntie Roo aka Ashley. (See?? She had a nickname! How come I didn’t?)
T – Time You Wake Up: The alarm goes off at 5:30 on the weekdays. I’m usually up around 6…maybe. And on the weekends, whenever Mr. V makes me get up. And of course, this doesn’t count the baby’s night wakings for sticking the paci back in or a nursing session.
U – Ultimate Dessert: funnel cake with ice cream and cherry pie filling. Oh, King’s Dominion, I do miss you.
V – Vegetable You Dislike: raw tomatoes (although yes, I know those are really a fruit.) Do olives count as a vegetable? I don’t really know where they fall.
W – Ways You Run Late: Not getting out of bed early enough.
X – X-rays You’ve Had: spine x-rays for scoliosis; arm/shoulder when I was in the car accident; hip when I passed out at the Y in the shower (um, have I ever told y’all that story? It’s really not much of a story. Just the most embarrassing thing to ever happen to me.)
Y – Yummy Food You Make: I love making yummy things! Some favorites are beef stew, crockpot BBQ pork, pasta, oh, anything. I like to bake too. Check out the recipes I’ve posted here.
Z – Zoo Animal: elephants, goats, sea lions…love cute animals!
