The ABC Rundown

Age: 29 and rapidly approaching 30!  I may be the only woman alive who is fully ready to embrace thirtyhood.
Bed size: Queen. Obviously, I’d like a King-sized bed, but mainly for my poor hub who I corner to the edge of the bed every night.  A girl’s gotta spread out during her beauty rest.
Chores you hate: Sweeping and Mopping.  I do a mean vacuum-job, but I literally refuse to acknowledge a mop’s existence.  And yes, I did just say “vacuum-job,” and considered being inappropriate for just a sec.
Dogs: Such amazing creatures.  Our doggie Riley Roo is such a mommy-dog to our boys.

Essential start to your day: Coffee.  Is there anything else?
Favorite color: Any shade of orange, followed closely by purple.  And the combo of the two… SHUT UP!
Gold or silver: I have switched back to wearing a lot of silver, but I think gold is SO much more feminine than silver.  Or maybe that’s just how it makes me  feel.  Luxurious.
Height: 5feet7inches, and in my family, I’m the short one.  I’m pretty sure I was meant to be about 5’10” though with my feet at about a size 10.5.  Yay coffee and cigarette use in my youth!
Instruments you play: The kazoo.  Okay, maybe not.  I am a phenomenal guitarist and bassist on Rock Band!!!  Also, I played the handbells in a bell choir when I was in the 4th and 5th grades.  Impressed?
Job title: I work full-time as an Account Representative at a university.  Try not to be jealous on this one.
Kids: We have 2, as I am sure I have mentioned once or twice before.  Both are boys.  There is a miniscule possibility of having a third, and if we don’t, we will adopt.  And then that’s it, damn it!  No more!!!
 
Liam’s got a way about him…
Live: In the Lovers State.
Mother’s name: Karen.  Bless her.
Nicknames: Currently, “Meg.”  And Mom.  I suppose that’s more of a title though.  My hub calls me “Kitty,” which I love.  Some others from the course of my history: Meggers, Megsy, PegLegMeg (funny story!), NutMeg, Megalicious, Megasaurus, SirMegsALot, Gonzo, Sugala.
Overnight hospital stays: See “Kids.”
Pet peeves: This requires a “list format”

  • People who CHEW really loud, especially when we’re having a conversation (in person or on phone); unfinished work; 
  • People who don’t use their blinkers (you know, those little flashing lights that let me know when you’re about to cut me off!!); 
  • Rudeness; passive-aggressiveness; laziness (all oddly related to the non-use of blinkers!); 
  • The skateboarders in my neighborhood; 
  • Too-tight jeans; 
  • Spending an hour on my hair only to walk outside into a humid-hell; 

I could really go on and on, but I’ll stop for the sake of my blood pressure.

Quote from a movie or show: I’m into funny movies:
Due Date
Peter Highman: “Number 2: if you’re allergic to waffles, don’t eat waffles!”
Ethan Tremblay: “Then don’t take me to a waffle house!”
 Hilarious.

 Righty or lefty: Both, but I work predominantly with my right hand.
Siblings: Mike and Melissa- both are younger than me, both are incredible people in their own regard.  I don’t see Mike often enough as we live 2 states away from each other.  I haven’t seen my sister in 5 years.  I miss them both.
Time you wake up: HA!!!  As early as 4:00 a.m. and no later than 5:30 a.m.  This is why I  get a free (daily) pass to act insane.
Underwear: Um, no comment.
Vegetable you hate: I like nearly all veggies except for peas or beans (lima, kidney).  And because I’m a freak of nature, I hate mashed potatoes.  I like hate hate them.
What makes you run late: Children.  Slow drivers in the fast lane (ooo, another pet peeve!).  Forgetting something at home.  Trying on every piece of clothing I have before settling on the first thing I tried on (aka- every morning).
X-rays you’ve had: Just for dental work.
Yummy food you make: I love to cook, and my hub tells me that he loves everything I make.  But my specialties are Chicken Tortilla Soup, Spaghetti, Shrimp and Herb Pasta, Eggs, Salads (any and all kinds).
Zoo animal: Sad face.
Well, this was fun and took up some time!  Thanks for sharing, Lauren!  Yours was fun to read!  We should have linked these up!  Next time  😉
