I recently came across this cool post “The ABC’s of Me” that Erica over at Looking to the Stars
completed. I liked how it helps you to get to know a blogger a little better, and I decided to do it for myself. Each letter represents a different aspect of a person, and you can provide as much info as you would like for each part.
A- Age: 42 – I’ll be 43 next month. Boy does 43 sound so much older than 42!
B- Biggest fear: Car accidents – the more stressed I get, the more nightmares I have about being in one.
C- Current Time: 6:07 PM.
D- Drink you last had:
I’m currently drinking a glass of red wine called The Muse….are you sensing the inspiration in this post
E- Easiest Person To Talk To: It depends on the day. I feel like certain friends/family members help you more depending on the situation. I don’t want to start listing names, because if I do, I know I will forget someone and hurt some feelings. I will say that the people who helped me out this weekend rock though (xoxo)!
F- Favorite song: “Roar” by Katy Perry is my life’s theme song at the moment. Whenever I hear the song, I just feel so empowered, and I love to sing it out loud when it’s on the radio.
G- Grossest Memory: It’s so hard to believe, but when I was in 6th grade I collected worms on rainy days. If you know me, this is a huge shocker!
H- Hometown: I grew up in Grayslake, IL and now live in Palatine, IL (both suburbs of Chicago….an amazing city with so many opportunities!
J- Jealous Of: People who do lots of traveling to lots of cool places! I know I will hit my destinations someday…..but sometimes I’m itching for a good trip.
K- Kissed Someone: (so originally this said kill someone……whaaaaaaaaat? – I didn’t know what to do with that so I changed it all on my own!). I’ve started dating again after the end of a 9 year relationship, and I did get a kiss on a date the other night (don’t get too excited though, because I won’t be seeing him again).
L- Longest Relationship: 10 years
M- Middle Name: Ann (it’s my mom’s name, and she happens to be the biggest Neil Diamond fan of all time!).
N- Number of Siblings: 1 brother, Rusty. If you know me, you know how much I adore my brother. I love to spend time with him and his family, and I can’t imagine life without all of them. How awesome is he that he grilled burgers in the pouring rain for the Hawks big Stanley Cup win this year!
O- One Wish: To continue to live in the present, and be grateful for the wonderful life I’ve been blessed with!
P- Person who you last called: My mom and dad – I call them almost every day!
Q- Question you’re always asked: How do you find so much time to read?
R- Reason to live: My family. You’ve seen pics of my brother and parents already. Here’s my niece and nephew that I adore! My nephew is totally into hockey, and my niece just earned her black belt! My sister-in-law is hard to capture in a photo, but I don’t know what we’d do without Laura!
S- Song you last sang: I’m not sure, but my current favorite to sing is ROAR by Katy Perry!
T- Time you woke up: 5:30 am (but that’s ridiculously early, and I did go back to sleep at some point).
U- Underwear Color:
Today is a pink day
V- Vacation Destination: I’m going to go with the number 1 vacation destination on my bucket list: Europe! I know I’ll get there someday, and I can’t wait! After I started drafting this post, I did book a bucket list vacation to Napa in October……I’m so excited, and I so can’t wait!
W- Worst Habit: Picking at dead skin (chapped lips, healing sunburn, etc.). I can’t handle white, peely skin just hanging out!
X- Xrays you’ve had: Ummmmm…..too many to list. If you have a question about which body parts have been viewed, then just ask .
Y- Your favorite food: Oh goodness! I don’t know if I could pick just one. I love Lou Malnati’s pizza, sushi, all kinds of cheese, a good medium-rare steak, dark chocolate, peanut butter, and so much more. Those are just the things that came to mind first.
Z- Zodiac Sign: Virgo.
Hopefully you know me a little better now. I invite all my blogging friends to participate in the tag so we can get to know you a little bit better as well! For the non-bloggers out there, share some of your ABC’s below! I love to get to know more about people!
