Starting Monday off with a pretty narcissistic post... But I'm unmotivated to do anything productive around the house today during the kids' naps. So I've taken a cue from my sister and friend, and am writing a few fun facts about me, from A to Z!
A - Age - 31... almost 32!
B - Bed Size - Queen. My hub wants a king, but I tell him then he won't be forced to snuggle with me.
C - Chore you hate - Dusting the blinds. It drives me crazy! I clean our house pretty thoroughly once a week, and absolutely loathe trying to dust the blinds. Any tricks or tools I'm unaware of that'll make this task less tedious?!
D - Dogs - We have one dog, a miniature weenie dog, Bailey. She thinks she's human.
E - Essential to Start Your Day - Before I was breastfeeding, running was my favorite way to start my day. Now it's pretty much impossible to be able to run first thing in the morning until I've nursed E a few times (if ya know what I mean)... so now, I guess coffee? I'm not a huge coffee drinker, but really need a cup in the morning to get my day going. I have a Keurig, and right now I'm obsessed with cappuccino k-cups!
F - Favorite Color - Yellow, and also navy blue.
G - Gold or Silver - Gold. Used to be silver all the way, but recently I've gone back to loving gold.
H - Height - 5'8"
I - Instruments You Play - None. I am so awful at all things musical.
J - Job Title - Stay-at-home mama and I am so, so thankful. Also, an Executive Consultant for Rodan + Fields.
K - Kids - Two... my little sidekick and favorite threenager, Cameron Kate. And our four-month-old miracle Everette, who pretty much has me wrapped around his finger.
L - Live - In Carrollton, Georgia. Born and raised in Columbia, South Carolina, from birth to senior year of high school (minus a few years I lived in Toronto, Canada)... Clemson University for college... followed a boy (who I ended up marrying!) to Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and lived there/taught school for ten years... and then we moved to Carrollton last year. Though I still feel intimidated in this small, close-knit town, I really do love it here.
M - Movie - Oh, this question always stumps me. I used to love Now and Then. I'm also a sucker for The Notebook.
N - Nickname - Jess, Jesseeca
O - Overnight Hospital Stays - I was hospitalized with a rough case of mono when I was in middle school. Other than that, just when I had my babies.
P - Pet Peeve - When the volume on a tv is really loud. Drives me crazy!
Q - Quote - I have two: "Don't let your worries for tomorrow rob your joys of today." and "When life give you rain... put on your raincoat, jump in the puddles, and quack like a duck."
R - Righty or Lefty - Lefty!
S - Siblings - 3.5 and 2. Clear as mud? I have three biological siblings (an older brother, older sister, and younger sister). We are extremely close. <3 I also have an older half-sister who is no longer in touch with myself nor my siblings. And I have a step-brother who is my age and a younger step-sister, who have been a close part of my family since my mama married their daddy over 13 years ago.
T - Time You Wake Up - Usually anytime between 6:30am and 7:15am, depending on the kiddos.
U - University You Attended - Clemson. Go Tigers!
V - Vegetable You Dislike - Hmmm... I guess brussel sprouts? Though I really think I've just never had them cooked correctly. I pretty much love all vegetables and could probably be a vegetarian. Well, other than seafood. I have to have seafood.
W - What Makes You Late - My threenager.
X - X-Rays - Oh man, I've had a lot. Honestly, I can't even count - ankles, hands, arms, etc.
Y - Yummy Food - Any kind of seafood. Cupcakes. Chips and dips. Chef salads. Double Stuffed Oreos. Holiday-shaped Reese cups. Fun-sized Milky Ways. Peanut M&Ms. Pizza. Turkey sandwiches. Yeah, I pretty much just love anything edible.
Z - Zoo Animal - Giraffes I guess? I've always thought they were so interesting!
There ya have it! Fascinating, I know.
