Get to Know Me: ABC

I saw the ABC game on Elycia's and Holly's blog and wanted to join in! -- Here are 26 things you may not know about me:

A. Age: 22, I'm turning 23 on July 7th!
B. Bed Size: day maybe a King when we have a house.
C. Chore that you hate: I actually really enjoy cleaning and organizing our home. BUT I kinda really dislike doing the laundry. It's the whole process that just takes too long and every time I turn around...more dirty clothes. Also, I don't enjoy the feeling of towels.
D. Dogs: Jon and I don't currently have a dog, but I grew up with dogs my whole life. My parents currently have Jake and Jojo.
E. Essential start to your day: Brushing my teeth. It's weird, but I don't feel awake until I brush my teeth. After that, I'm ready to go!
F. Favorite Color: Always and forever, the color blue. And I like all shades of blue...except for royal; only sometimes royal.
G. Gold or Silver: Gold, but I prefer and antiqued gold. I'm not a fan of the bright and shiny golds and silvers.
H. Height: 5'3"; I topped out when I was 13. :)
I. Instruments you play: Guitar, but it's been a long while. My husband has a Japanese Shamisen that I'll play around with sometimes.
J. Job Title: Graphic Designer on the Media & Technology team at Chick-fil-A Corporate. AND MaieDae blogger, designer, hand-maker enthusiast.
K. Kids: Maybe two? One day -- like three years?? We'll see. :)
L. Live: I have an Atlanta address, but I'm actually right on the tippy outside of the city.
M. Mother's Name: Shirley Jean
N. Nicknames: Sav, Savvy and my dad still calls me Pooter Pot Pie, a hilarious and fond childhood nickname.
O. Overnight hospital stays: None! Thankfully. I've had a couple surgeries but they were quick and I got to go home the same day.
P. Pet peeve: Cold fries, when people leave the toilet seat up in our home (our cat Kaito likes to swim in toilets)... and mean drivers.
Q. Quote from a movie: "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn."
R. Right or left handed: Left
S. Siblings: Two: Ian who is 18 (almost 19) and Kelsie who is sweet 16. :)
T. Time you wake up: Weekdays - 7:00 Weekends - varies, sometimes I'll sleep in until 10:30
U. Underwear: A dresser drawer full from my lingerie shower last April. Too. Many. Panties!
V. Vegetable you hate: Mushrooms-- uuukk!
W. What makes you run late: Usually running around collecting everything I need to take somewhere. I'm trying to get better about getting my things together the night BEFORE.
X. X-Rays you've had: Teeth....I vaguely remember another but I'm not sure.
Y. Yummy food that you make: A fluffy homemade Oreo cheesecake...soooo good.
Z. Zoo Animal: Gorilla!

Have you played the ABC game? Share your link and I'd love to see!

  2. I liked reading about the chore that you hate; sometimes I think it's strange to say I like cleaning but it really is a good feeling!

  3. I love this!
    It was so fun getting to know you better. :)
    I'm a new follower and I'm so glad I stumbled across your blog!


  4. This is so fun! Hmm...maybe I should do this when I have a brain freeze about what to post on my blog?! Great idea! :)

    Oh, and E. is my essential thing, too, before I do ANYTHING else! (Now I can tell my husband that there are at least two of us "weirdos" out there!) And W. is totally my mission for the summer!
