A little about me, a little about you

Happy Friday!!  I hope you had a wonderful Independence Day!

A. Attached or Single? Married! 

B. Best Friend?  Bam.  Okay Mike too.  Winking smile


C. Cake or pie?  Red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, preferably from Sprinkles, but I don’t discriminate. 

D. Day of the week?  Monday.  I’m weird but there’s something about a fresh start to a brand new week.  I also really like the weekend because Mike’s usually off work and I get to poke him and make fun of him more than usual.  I’m a keeper. 

E. Essential item?  Coffee. 


F. Favorite color?  Neon pink & pretty much anything loud & obnoxious just like me.

G. Gummy Bears or worms?  Watermelon Sour Patch Kids.

H. Hometown? Fresno, CA

I. Indulgence?  I don’t believe in indulgences.  I eat everything I want in moderation, but I love salt & vinegar chips.

J. January or July?  July.  Why is this even a question?!

K. Kids?  Just my Lu!  (Mike’s daughter)  I don’t want kiddos of my own, so having her is perfect!

M. Marriage Date? April 28, 2006

N. Number of siblings? 1 sister, 1 brother.  I’m the oldest.

O. Oranges or apples?  Um, bananas.  I have one with breakfast every morning, they give me go go gadget legs when I run. 

P. Phobia’s?  Yacking…anything that has to do with it.  Yuck.  And snakes.  I can’t even watch them on TV.  I just shuddered writing that.

Q. Quote?  “I’m gonna fill a pillow case with bars of soap and beat the crap out of you.”  

Okay really, I’m currently loving “don’t let someone who gave up on their dreams, talk you out of yours.”

Don't give up

R. Reasons to smile?  I have a million!  Our health-I never want to take it for granted, Mike, the ability to run even if I’m a slow poke, I am so thankful for the simple things.  I could go on…


S. Season of choice?  I live in the bay area, so I like them all.  The weather really is as incredible year round as they say it is.  I’m still not sure the price tag is worth it though. 

T. Tag 3 people.  Everyone reading this.  I want to get to know you too!

U. Unknown fact about me?  I can get really anxious, sometimes for no reason at all.  Also I’ve never been on a plane.  I live under a rock.

V. Vegetable?  Artichokes, zucchini, salads, spinach, I like most veggies.


W. Worst habit?  When talking to people, I assume they know what I’m talking about when I haven’t explained it yet.  Also I talk really loud.  I’m a real peach.

X. X-ray or ultrasound?  Neither.

Y. Your favorite food?  Carbs.  Pizza, chips, sandwiches, bananas, fresh peaches, cherries, lemons, bread, spaghetti, salads, anything salty and/or sour and kid food.

Z. Zodiac sign?  I think Taurus.  My Birthday is April 20.  I don’t believe in these things. 

Your turn!!  Answer all or as many as you’d like.
