It has been some time since I last joined in with Elaine of The Miss Elaine-ous Life for Old School Blogging, but I saw her post and also Rabia’s of The Liebers and couldn’t resist joining in for some good old fashioned Old School Blogging this month with the ABCs of Me.
So sit back, be schooled with the ABCs of Me and next time won’t you sing with me. As I would love for you to join so I can learn more about you, as well!
A- Age: 38. Although, if you are my mother reading this, you are shaking your head as to why I have actually divulged my real age. But to learn more about how old I am really am, see this post.
B- Biggest Fear: As a kid, I always had these weird and terrible nightmares of driving over a bridge and falling off only to plunge to my apparent death. So, if I have to say one fear in my younger days, it would be this. But as a parent, I am also not a fan of puking and can read all about that here.
C- Current Time: 9:17 on Thursday night.
D- Drink you last had: Water with slices of lime in my brand new tumbler cup I received as swag from having breakfast at the Rainbow Room this past week as a guest of Today Parenting Team to discuss how to stop mom judging as a contributor to their site.
E- Easiest Person To Talk to: My husband, as he does mostly get me and even gives play to all my crazy thoughts daily (thanks for that and more!).
F- Favorite Song: Hey Bulldog by The Beatles (Classic and could not love The Beatles more if I tried.) and my idol Dave Grohl from Foo Fighters (finally got to see him this past summer at Citi Field in concert during the Broken Leg Tour) covered it, which only made it that much sweeter for me.
G- Grossest Memory: The first time we had to give our older daughter her first bath. Let’s just say if you didn’t read about it here, it really was 50 Shades of Poop and than some!
H- Hometown: New York, NY! Seriously, I just so happened to born and raised in the greatest city that never sleeps and definitely appropriate as I haven’t been a great sleeper for years now. But still, proud to be a New Yorker and always will be, even when my New York big mouth gets me in trouble, such as being in Disney and being outed once I opened my mouth to a security guard in a torrential rainstorm. Yup, you can take the the girl out of NY, but not the NY out of this girl ever!
I- In love with: My husband and girls always…Daddy and His Girls!
J- Jealous Of: People who can sing and carry a tune, because even though I do love to sing, still somewhere when I do try to belt out my favorites, a dog is crying!
K- Killed Someone? As much as I have wanted to, not a violent person. So, nope and never!
L- Longest Relationship: My husband – over 13 years strong still!
M- Middle Name: Louise, as this was my mother’s grandmother’s name. From all I hear, she was a saint and absolutely a wonderful woman, so I am even after all these years blessed and honored to carry on her name.
N- Number of Siblings: One brother, who is 6 years younger than me.
O- One Wish: To be more patient.
P- Person who you last called: My husband, who I spoke to at work today.
Q- Question you’re always asked: “How old are you really?” Seriously, thank god for good genes as most don’t think I am more than my mid 20s even as I am heading to 40! Thanks Mom for your youthful DNA!
R- Reason to smile: Again my husband and kids!!
S- Song you last sang: “Castaway by Zac Brown Band” as I am still summer dreaming after seeing them also in concert at Citi Field this past summer, too!
T- Time you woke up: Just about 7 am as it is a school day for both my girls and now having to get all ready and on the school bus for the day…
U- Underwear Color: Pink Victoria Secret Lace Yoga Thong. (Guess this girl doesn’t have much of a secret going on now!)
V- Vacation Destination: Disney World – Orlando Florida – I know we just came back last month, but pretty much convinced my husband to return next year for our 10 year wedding anniversary.
W- Worst Habit: Cracking my knuckles.
X- X-rays you’ve had: Multiple sonograms for both pregnancies and teeth x-rays at my annual checkups.
Y- Your favorite food: Anything with shrimp in it.
Z- Zodiac Sign: Gemini. That’s right I am a twin totally and have my fair share of indecisiveness with trouble making my mind up, because very often the twin sign is so very strong here. If as far back as when I was a little girl, my mom still tells the story of how I asked for a glass of milk, only to tell her as she brought it to me that I didn’t even like milk and wasn’t sure why I asked for it!
