Fall colors here I am! Teal, gray and burgundy with a touch of pale rose - perfectly fall. I love this sweater - the color is perfect and the fit is flattering on my busty self. ;)
So, I discovered this cool little A - Z quizzie thing floating around on the internet and I always enjoy posting random odd little things about myself. So here goes.
A. Age: 32 (for a few more months at least) (Update: I am now 34.)
B. Bed size: Queen - just big enough and comfy enough. Except when the Munchkin climbs in when he isn't feeling good. Then it's kind of a tight fit. :)
C. Chore that you hate: Laundry - it is never ending. No sooner do I get it done and folded and put away than it is all dirty again. Ugh! The stupid dishwasher has the same problem. Ick.
D. Dogs: One, a maltese named Moppet. He's almost 12 now. Poor baby still isn't quite sure what to do with the little dude who has taken his place as the baby of the family. ;)
E. Essential start to your day: Hugs from my little dude and my big dude. Then breakfast. Must have breakfast or mommy turns into a gremlin.
F. Favorite color: Pink. Unabashedly and unashamedly pretty, pale and girly. Always has been, always will be. ;) My childhood bedroom was Strawberry Shortcake! I would happily paint my walls pink, but the hubby won't let me. ;(
G. Gold or Silver: I actually prefer rose gold (favorite color: pink, remember), but I am good with either, it just depends on what I am wearing.
H. Height: 5'2 3/4" but I like to call myself 5'3".
I. Instruments you play: none anymore - played piano in high school, but that was a long time ago.
J. Job title: Stay at mom and wife.
K. Kids: One little boy - my Munchkin who is three and a truckload of fun and craziness! (Update: the kiddo is now 4!)
L. Live: Arkansas
M. Mother’s name: Cherri (Cheryl Anne - interesting fact - my mother-in-law's name is also Sherrill Ann, just spelled differently)
N. Nicknames: CC is actually a nickname, not my real name. ;)
O. Overnight hospital stays: two: once when I had my tonsils out, and then when I had my little dude. (Update: Make that three! I came down with appendicitis last year right before Christmas and spent two days in the hospital!)
P. Pet peeves: I am an English major. So obviously the there/their/ they're thing drives me up the wall. Another one is nauseous vs. nauseated. (Quick grammar lesson: you say 'I am nauseated' or 'that is a nauseous shade of green' NOT 'I am nauseous' cause you are then describing yourself as being nauseating.) Also, bored/board or as I keep seeing on FB bord (not. a. word.!!!)
Q. Quote from a movie: You know, for some reason I can never think of a movie quote when asked for one. Strange? Probably.
R. Right or left handed: Right handed.
S. Siblings: one brother - my baby brother who is a foot taller than me!
T. Tattoos: Ummm....no. I am not crazy about the idea of something being permanently on my person. What happens if I change my mind? Yikes.
U. Underwear: Um, hello, this is the internet. We're not going there, 'kay?
V. Vegetable you hate: I loathe peppers. Are peppers a veggie? Eh, whatever, I hate them regardless.
W. What makes you run late: Usually the Munchkin. It's all his fault. ;) Getting a three year old out the door with all of his stuff and no tantrums with the potty used can take way longer than one would think. He always seems to need to potty as we are walking out the door! (Update: I am happy to report that the kiddo is no longer a cause for being late. He is now usually the first person to the door and raring to go. ;)
X. X-Rays you’ve had: dental, wrist, sinus - I think that's all.
Y. Yummy food that you make: anything with marinara sauce (I make my own and it is pretty good) - manicotti, spaghetti, lasagna, you name it. If it has cheese, pasta, and marinara sauce I make it. ;)
Z. Zoo animal: River otters. And tigers. And prairie dogs. And the itty bitty monkeys. Let's just say we love the zoo and leave it at that.
So, there you have it. All kinds of random knowledge you probably never wanted to know. Now I would love to know if you do this post. So, if you have done or will do an A to Z post, leave your link in the comments so I can come see. Then we can all have all sorts of random knowledge about all sorts of random people. There. Isn't this fun. ;)
