Dawn over at Mom-A-Logues did this and I thought it looked like fun! Here's mine!
AGE = 27
BED SIZE = We started out our marriage with a very uncomfortable double bed. When I was pregnant with Little Man, our landlady (who is also a close family friend) was looking to downsize so she traded beds with us. She took our double bed and we got her super comfy king size bed! It made a huge difference in my sleep while I was pregnant. With the double bed, I'd always wake up stiff and so sore I could barely walk.
CHORE YOU HATE = Laundry. Hands down! I don't mind washing, drying, or even folding (I save it for after the kids go to bed and then sit down and watch a few tv shows while folding laundry), but I hate, hate, hate putting it away.
DOGS = No thank you! I don't mind dogs, but it's just one more responsibility and expense right now. When the kids are old enough to clean up after the dog ( I am NOT becoming a poop scooper!) and help pay for vet bills, they can get one.
ESSENTIAL START TO YOUR DAY = Waking up before the kids. If I have a few minutes to do my devotions and drink a cup of hot chai before they wake up, I can handle them so much better.
FAVORITE COLOR = Blue. I love just about every shade of it! My wedding colors were blue and yellow.
GOLD OR SILVER = I've always like silver better, but all of the jewelry my husband has ever given me has been gold, so it's growing on me!
HEIGHT = 5' 5"
INSTRUMENTS YOU PLAY = I used to play the flute, but asthma made that difficult. I play a little piano, a little mandolin, a little guitar, and a little violin/fiddle. I really should buckle down and get good at one instrument :)
JOB TITLE = Small business owner. I have my own children's clothing boutique and am starting a new business selling pdf sewing patterns for clothing I've designed. I also count wife and mother as my job titles :)
KIDS = Princess (5), Little Man (2), and Star (4 months). I always wanted to have 4 or 6 kids (not 5, I grew up with 4 siblings and nothing divides evenly among 5!), but I'm happy with my 3 precious little ones.
LIVE = In a very small town in southeastern Minnesota. We have to drive 45 minutes to buy anything other than the basic groceries we can buy in town here.
MARRIED = Married to my dear Hubby for 6 years now!
NICKNAMES = My older sister calls me "Nanna" and she's the only one who's allowed to call me that. I've been called Hannah Banana A LOT by pretty much everyone, but I generally try to discourage that, lol.
OVERNIGHT HOSPITAL STAYS = Um, yeah. When I was 6, I was in the hospital for a week (and in a coma for 5 days) because I stopped breathing due to an asthma attack. Asthma attacks put me in the hospital again at ages 10, 13, and 15. I've also been in the hospital 3 times to have babies :) The last time, I was kept 2 extra days because I developed cellulitis in my leg after giving birth. After it was completely better, I finally looked it up in a medical journal (I didn't want to freak myself out while I still had it). By the time cellulitis gets to the point where you're spiking a high fever like I was, you're going septic and will slip into a coma and die if you don't get help immediately. Glad I didn't know how serious it was while I had it!
PET PEEVE = Inconsiderate people. I always try to consider how my actions affect others. It really bugs me when people completely ignore that and just do what they want.
QUOTE = "For me to live is Christ and to die is gain." Philipians 1:21
RIGHTY OR LEFTY = I'm so right handed that I could probably cut my left hand off and not miss it. When I was 6 (yeah, it was a bad year), I broke my right wrist. Boy, did that make things interesting for a while. Incidentally, that's when I finally learned to tell my right hand from my left. Even now, I stop and think, "okay, I broke this wrist so this is my right hand and that's my left." Pathetic? Probably.
SIBLINGS = I have 1 older sister, 2 younger brothers, and a younger sister, in that order. I loved growing up in a big family.
TIME YOU WAKE UP = If it were up to me, I'd sleep until about 7:30, but Star usually gets me up between 6:30 and 7.
UNIVERSITY ATTENDED = I attended a community college during my senior year in high school and then took online classes several years later.
VEGGIES YOU DISLIKE = I'm a bona fide picky eater (sorry, Mom!) so there aren't too many I like. Actually, it would probably be faster to list the ones I like than the ones I don't. I like spinach, greens, green beans, carrots, potatoes, and corn. Ok, corn is technically a grain, so that doesn't really count.
WHAT MAKES YOU RUN LATE = My kids! Somedays, it can take over an hour to get out the door.
X-RAYS YOU'VE HAD = I had an x-ray on my wrist when I broke it and I've had quite a few x-rays for asthma related stuff.
YUMM FOOD = I could eat pepperoni pizza 6 days a week.
ZOO FAVORITE ANIMAL = Elephants.
