A to Z of Me

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.
