I was recently asked to write a short post on the ABC's of me. It's much harder than I first thought. But I decided to go with what FIRST came to mind. So here goes......

A – Almost 30. If we’re counting backwards. Ok, I’m 37.
B – Blessed with amazing family surrounding me. Awesome parents, six siblings, my own version of Mr. Darcy, and four funny kids.
C – Courtney is my older sister by four years. I used to steal her clothes until she grew up and I grew out.
D – Dance. I love to turn up the I-pod and dance and sing. The sillier the better.
E – Elections – I vote in every one, even though I can’t stand politicians. I take my right to vote seriously.
F – Fear of cockroaches - a real fear. If I find one, I can’t kill it but I can’t do anything until it is dead. This requires outside help.
G – G-Cup - as in the cup-size of my bra. Yes, it does exist.
H – Hubby is funny and generous and isn’t afraid to join in on the singing and dancing.
I – “It’s good to do hard things” is my motto and something my kids are surely sick of hearing. But I’m gonna keep telling them anyway.
J – Jump. I can jump freakishly high for being so short.
K – Keeping Up With the Kardashians is a guilty pleasure. (this one isnt' true anymore)
L – Laughter. I love to laugh and I inherited a loud, boisterous laugh from my dad. Think Julia Roberts’ laugh, only less feminine.
M – Mexican food is my go-to meal. I could cook it and eat it for every meal, every day.
N – “No” is not in my vocabulary, but needs to be. It’s something I’m working on.
O – Organized. Being organized makes me oh so happy.
P – Pumped for the new Twilight movie. Team Edward all the way.
Q – Quantas-lay-hay. A made-up word from our childhood made-up language, the Ooban-Dooban Language. Synonym: dork or goober. I still use this.
R – Rarely get jealous. It’s not in my nature, thankfully.
S – Swimming. I have always loved to swim and I’m pretty good at it, despite my non-swimmer’s figure. I used to teach swim lessons and plan to again.
T – The Sound of Music is my all-time favorite movie for so many reasons.
U – Ugly feet. They look like hobbit feet with the same strange, sideways pinky toes that Court has.
V – Volleyball, softball, track, tennis, ping pong. I.LOVE.SPORTS. Love to play them and watch them and I’m pretty decent at them.
W – Won’t break the rules – I am a rule-follower.
X – Xmas is my favorite time of year. I love the spirit of the season, the reminders of what matters, traditions, the lights, playing Secret Santa, the music…all of it.
Y – Yep, I’m a Mormon. I belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and boy do I love it.
Z – Zero tolerance for whining and complaining.

  1. Loved this post. For some reason your blog doesn't show a recent post in my sidebar. It shows you haven't posted in over a year! So glad I got on anyway just to check in.
