A-Z about ME!

I saw this in one of those emails that gets sent around and I thought it would be fun to post on this blog! I'd love to get some more followers and figured if you knew a bit more about me, maybe you would follow!!

A. Age: 30+1 wonderful years

B. Bed size: King, which is a recent upgrade from our Queen. Let me tell you our King bed has been the best investment for our long bodies! I'm not sure how we managed before...

C. Chore you hate: I am one of those weirdos who really enjoys cleaning. Sometimes getting started can be challenging, but once I've got some good music on I get really lost in cleaning. The only thing I don't care for is doing the floors... vacuuming and mopping. Usually by time I've gotten to the floors I'm over cleaning, and wish they would just clean themselves.

D. Dogs: None, yet. I hope. My Grammy jus got the most adorable fluffy Maltese puppy and I'm hoping that little fur ball will help convince Troy to let us get a fur baby.

E. Essential start to your day: Hitting snooze about a gazillion times, showering then coffee from Circle K (Jamaican Me Crazy) or Starbucks (Sugar Free Vanilla latte)

F. Favorite color: Pink and red

G. Gold or Silver: Silver, silver, silver

H. Height: 6'0... understand why the King bed has made such an impression?

I. Instruments you play: uhhhm... recorder, chimes. Not musically inclined. Also my singing voice is pretty horrific, or so I hear from others. Don't worry... it doesn't keep me from singing!

J. Job Title: Teacher in Residence at the University of Arizona. I teach and supervise Early Childhood and Elementary pre-service teachers.

K. Kids: None yet... hopefully that will change soon!

L. Live: Tucson, Az and I love my town!!!

M. Married: yes to Troy boy or T-Roy

N. Nicknames: I don't have any real nicknames that have stuck... Some short term nicknames have been panda, Renee... nothing special, really

O. Overnight hospital stays: None thank goodness!

P. Pet peeve: Poor table manners, inconsiderate people and drivers.

Q. Quote:
People are just about as happy as they allow themselves to be. ~Abraham Lincoln

It is not in the stars to hold our destiny, but in ourselves. ~Shakespeare

Be the change you wish to see in the world. ~Ghandi

R. Righty or Lefty: Righty

S. Siblings: 2 brothers- an older, Jon and a younger brother, Josh. Both handsome and available-ish

T. Time you wake up: It depends on what my days look like, but typically I wake up at 6:15 (boo)

U. University attended: I'm a proud alumni of The University of Arizona... Go Wildcats!

V. Vegetables you dislike: I love all vegetables.

W. What makes you run late: Not knowing what I want to wear for the morning, trying to do too much before I leave for the day...

X. X-rays you've had: I was in an ATV accident and was hurt pretty badly so I had x-rays of my legs and arms.

Y. Yummy food: Italian food, caldo de queso (yummy Mexican potato soup)

Z. Zoo animal favorite: Giraffes!!! I was so much taller when I was younger, so everyone called me giraffe. Who knows how that got started, but I figured I could either love it or hate it. I decided to embrace it, and therefore the giraffe has become my favorite zoo animal. !
