Thank you guys SO much for your comments on yesterday’s post. I’m definitely going to be reading through those any time I’m struggling or feeling frustrated with the journey. If you haven’t read through them yet, I suggest you do. It’s pretty crazy how many people felt like they could have written that post themselves – that the words felt like they were coming from them rather than from me. It’s a post had I been toying with the idea of writing for quite some time, and I’m glad I did based on your reactions.
Today I have a much lighter post in store. I’ve seen the ABCs of me going around the blogworld, and I thought it would be fun to do it, too. I’ve been really into sharing information about myself this week apparently.
A. Age: 26
B. Bed size: Queen.
C. Chore you hate: Cleaning the floors. HATE hate hate.
D. Dogs: My mom gave our cocker spaniel, Sabrina, away when I was little without telling me and it was pretty traumatic. I’ve never been too attached to any dog since. I do love my sister’s dog though because I can run with Sadie!
E. Essential start to your day: Brushing my teeth immediately upon crawling out of bed, then reversing it with a large cup of coffee. Always.
F. Favorite color: Grey, black, yellow and turquoise.
G. Gold or silver: Silver. Hands down.
H. Height: 5’8.
I. Instruments you play: I used to play the flute and the piano but didn’t stick with either, so nothing now. Except if I’m with my niece Claire. Then all bets are off and I’ve been known to play some random instruments, sing, and dance like a crazy person.
J. Job title: Sponsorship Development Specialist. Aka fundraiser.
K. Kids: None for now. Though my boyfriend does have a daughter so I get to pretend a little.
L. Live: In Arlington, VA and work in downtown DC.
M. Mom’s name: Susan aka Sue. Fun fact: Her middle name is Wilma but she used to tell everyone it was Wisteria.
N. Nicknames: Beth is my full name – not Elizabeth, not Bethany, not anything else with Beth in it. Just Beth. People have a hard time getting their head around that one. But nicknames? BK, Betty Boop, B-Kizzle. Ha.
O. Overnight hospital stays: September 2006 – I had emergency back surgery and spent 2 nights in the hospital. I spent a lot of time on the floor surrounding that period of my life. Half sleeping, half online shopping.
P. Pet peeve: Grammar mistakes. Their/they’re/there, too/two/to, and misspelled words. Definately. Excellant. Makes me crazy!
Q. Quote from a movie: “When I said, “yeah, sure”, but what… literally what I said was “yeah, sure” sir.” Gets me every time. Name that movie.
R. Righty or Lefty: Righty.
S. Siblings: Two older sisters – Heather and Wendy. I’m the baby. They say I only got cool around age 22 – no idea what they’re talking about.
T. Time you wake up: 7:30am during the week, unless I’m working out in the morning – 6:55am (which is pushing it). On the weekends, whenever I wake up. Usually between 8 and 10.
U. Underwear: Creeper. No response.
V. Vegetables you dislike: Hmmm this one is tough. I really love my veggies.
W. What makes you run late: I HATE being late so try not to be. The only thing that ever gets in the way is traffic, but I usually plan for it!
X. X-rays you’ve had: On my back for above mentioned surgery, plus some others I’m sure.
Y. Yummy food you make: Quinoa Burgers are my favorite lunch/dinner recipe, and the skillet soufflé is my favorite breakfast/brunch/anytime recipe.
Z. Zoo animal favorite: Zebras! They are so beautiful.
Tell me to stop anytime. 🙂
Now what about you? Tell me the essential start to your day and your nicknames!
