ABC's of me

I need a little perk me up, lost an old friend yesterday.  I thought about blogging about it, but honestly, I just want to think happy thoughts and enjoy life.  It's just too short!  So, there's been this questionnaire going around the blogiverse and I thought it would be fun to do.  

 A. Attached or Single?
 Attached for 22 years and counting to a guy that loves Germany and chicken hats amongst other things.

B. Best Friend?
 Other than my above-beloved, that would be my Hope...I call her metwo.  ;)

C. Cake or pie?  Cake, hands down.
D. Day of choice? This would be MONDAY, believe it or not.  Usually is my "Saturday" since my clients all come home on Sunday.  
E. Essential Item?
 Hmmm, there are many.  How about my glasses so I can SEE!
F. Favorite color? Green and Purple tie.  I can't choose, you can't make me.
G. Gummy bears or worms? Neither.  Ick!  Hate how they stick in your teeth and don't really like the taste.
H. Home town?
 Saint Louis, Missouri burbs.
I. Favorite Indulgence?(Going the non-food direction with this one) Pretty Little Liars or any reality show that Savannah & I can snuggle up on the couch and watch/pick apart together.
J. January or July? July.  Seasonal issues in the winter and July has stuff we can shoot off, swimming, and everything is green.

The only thing good about January is that I'm usually headed to Disney World that time of year! 

K. Kids? Can't imagine life without em! They grow too fast.

L. Life isn’t complete without?
 Guess I won't put my family since I just said that! How about self-reflection. (trying hard not to put running for everything. LOL)

M. Marriage date? Which date?  We go by a few.  Long story! ;) October usually.

N. Number of brothers/sisters?
 2 older sisters, I'm the baby.
O. Oranges or Apples? Apples only b/c I'm lazy and oranges are a pain to peel.
P. Phobias?
 I have a little bit of social anxiety and some fear of heights but they don't usually slow me down much.
Q. Quotes? So hard to choose! (I probably would have gone Disney but didn't want to copy Lauren! LOL)  "Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Love truly, Kiss slowly, Laugh uncontrollably, and Never regret anything that made you smile." -Unknown (yep, I just edited this b/c it's perfect for me today!)

R. Reasons to smile?
 I could write a book, I have so many things to smile about. Life is short, I plan on smiling until I can't smile anymore and the laugh lines are permanently etched in my face. I should be so lucky.
S. Season of choice? Fall!

T. Tag 5 People. Anyone who reads this and hasn’t done this post yet, you are tagged!
U. Unknown fact about me? This is hard, I'm an open book usually.  When I was younger, I wanted to be a Forest Ranger. 
V. Vegetable? Parmesan.
W. Worst habit? Interrupting people. Yep. 
X. Xray or Ultrasound? Uh...guess it was hard to find an X question.  LOL.
Y. Your favorite food? Right now, Fage yogurt.  I could eat it by the gallon...and sometimes do. ;)
Z. Zodiac sign? Pisces

Haha!  I made it through the whole thing without posting a Disney photo.  It's some sort of miracle!  No worries, I'm sure I'll have one of those on Wide-angle Wednesday.  (oh wait...that's a lie!  The picture of Rey with the chicken hat is from Disney! So close!)


  1. You could have posted a Disney quote, there are so many to choose from haha! :) I'm curious about your multiple wedding dates story!

    1. There are so many to choose from! I was trying to think out of the box (for me that means no Disney! LOL)

      It's not really THAT long of a story. A couple years into our marriage, Rey & I divorced briefly! We still spent nearly every day together because the boys were little and he wanted to be with them and I guess we jumped the gun b/c we ended up getting remarried 18 months later! Most of the time we go by how many years we have been together instead of a marriage date...since there are 2! LOL

    2. I just edited my post and changed the quote to one that fits how I'm feeling more today. Normally not so indecisive! LOL.

    3. That makes sense lol!

      Love the quote you changed it to :)

  2. "Never regret anything that made you smile" that is a HUGE motto in my life. At one point, everything you have done has made you happy, even if it turned out to be a "mistake." And just read your story about you and Rey in the comment above -- crazy! But I guess true love works itself out :)

    1. Yep! I think we were just young and didn't know quite how to work through our problems. Once we figured it out, we've been unbreakable since! :)

  3. I knew pretty much everything except the forest ranger and that makes sense.

    1. I figured you would! I even took that high school test where it tells you what career you would do best at and Forestry was what it told me!

  4. Love reading these! I actually tagged you in mine that will post tomorrow! You beat me to it! :0)

    1. Haha! That's hilarious! I'll be looking for yours tomorrow.

  5. I've got one of these in the wings as well. Love your photos in this one, they are so fun!

  6. Great post! It's fun to learn more about my blogger peeps. ;)

    1. Thanks Kim! You need to do it too...I'm personally tagging you! ;)

    2. Lol. I will get working on it! :)

  7. Loved the quote Karen. And smiled at the wedding dates.
