Friday Fun: Me from A to Z

This week for Friday Fun I wanted to do something different. In addition to my about me page, I thought it would be fun to post some random facts about me. I got this A to Z idea from Kelly of Sparkles and Shoes and I loved it!

So here goes...me from A to Z.

A - Available or married?
Married. 3.5 years to this amazingly hot guy... 

B- Book?
Oh goodness...I am reading 5 different books right now and can't wait until our trip where I plan to read about 7 more! My favorite book of all time...Great Gatsby! I am so excited for the movie! 

C- Cake or Pie?
I love both since I was nicknamed Junkfood Jilly as a kid but I would have to say cake. The 21st Century Cake at our local market is TO.DIE.FOR. It is only allowed in our house twice a month. It's that good. 

D- Drink of Choice?
Sparkling Water. I am addicted to it. I sometimes have to have it for breakfast. La Croix is my favorite brand. If you have not tried it, try it now! You will thank me later! 

E- Essential start to your day:
Sitting up for 10 - 20 minutes in bed - I get dizzy if I don't do this. Oh and scratching my dog, Kirin's, back. He makes me. This is not something I choose to do. 
F- Favorite Color?
Green. Green. Green. If you can't tell from this blog or our wedding pictures. I am so happy it's Pantone's color of the year...more green makes me a happy girl. 

G- Game to play or watch?
Definitely the Lifetime Couch Game (warning the couch game can take HOURS our of your day - trust me). I just played the other night after taking a 4 year break. I still got it! Thanks for reminding me of this Brooke! 

H- Height?
In my mind, I am 5'7" but in reality I am 5'2" and 3/4 so basically 5'3". I round up. 

I- Indulgence?
Too many, but probably all forms of chocolate, these cookies, and VG's donuts. 

J- Job?
I've had many (Retail Buyer, Marketing Director, Copywriter) but I am currently an Account Director for an Online Marketing Company by day (love it) and a necklace maker by night/weekend!

K- Kids and names?
Only fur babies - Kirin (white) and Kona (brown) 

(we love blankets in our house)

L- Life is incomplete without?
Family, Friends and Good Health!

M- Music group or singer?
I love Acoustic Guitar/Singer Songwriter artists (Jason Mraz, Jack Johnson, Tony Lucca, Matt Wertz, etc). I am a loyal DMB fan even though I don't love the new stuff. And I love all the songs that I hear on the soft/easy listening station that my mom listens too.  Don't hate, it's good stuff!

N- Number of siblings?
One amazing sister. Here we are in the 80's and last year. Aren't we cute?

O- Overnight hospital stays:
One. Hated it. I hope I never have to go again. 

P- Phobias/Fears?
Emetephobia - fear of throwing up. I know everyone says that they hate throwing up (who likes it?) but I have an actual FEAR of it. Like panic attacks, hyperventilation, all that fun stuff. It's not cool and it definitely limits things I do in life. I can't wait for the day I get over it - so does my poor husband who has to deal with me when I feel sick! :) 

Q- Favorite Quote?
So corny but I love this one:

Honestly if you truly believe this you can get through tough times. I always look at the bad things in life and see what good came out of them. 

R. Righty or Lefty:
Righty. But I do certain things left handed like cutting with a knife and playing the guitar. Well attempting to play the guitar. Does Guitar Hero count? :) 

S- Favorite Shoes
I can't even answer this. Here's why...

...and this is only half of the shoes I own. 

T. Time you wake up:
7 am. I don't mind waking up early as long as I wake up on my own. I despise alarm clocks. I think they make people grumpy. Especially those loud beepy ones...those suck. 

U- Unknown facts about me?
I spent NYE 1999 and 2000 at the Playboy Mansion. Yes, I was fully clothed and yes it was amazingly fun. 

My friend Katherine and I with Mini Me and Noah from the OG 90210.

V. Vegetables you dislike:
Too many to write but mainly potatoes, mushrooms, eggplant and basically any veggie that has been cooked. It's usually easier for me to list the ones I do like. 

W. What makes you run late:
Being totally OCD and checking to make sure my flat iron and curling irons are off.  99% of the time they are so I have no idea why I think this all of the time. I also think that I left burners on even if I have not cooked anything for a week. 

X. X-rays you've had:
A lot. I broke my little toe when I was 8 and had a cast up to my knee with a rainbow walking boot. It was not pretty.  I also spent my entire childhood at the dentist because my teeth wouldn't fall out on their own. My adult teeth grew in and for a short time I had two rows of teeth. Then my new teeth were crowded so I spent 6 years in headgear, braces, spacers and retainers. So yes, a lot of x-rays in my life. 

Y. Your Favorite Food:
Macaroni and Cheese & Artichokes. But not together...that would be gross. 

Z- Zodiac
Aries. I was born on the last day of Aries because I refused to be a Taurus. That's so Aries of me. 

There you have it! I hope I didn't bore you on this lovely Friday. Happy weekend everyone!

  2. What a fun post, I love getting to know you better. And hello shoes, can I come play in your closet!? I'm OCD about checking things too, for me it's making sure the garage door is closed. I've gone up the street and will turn around to make sure. Of course, it's ALWAYS closed. :)
