ABCs of me giveaway!

I think these surveys and polls are a great way to document my current thoughts, so I’ve been filling them out for fun. …and for those of you who want to get to know me better, here’s a little bit more about me from A to Z:
A – Available – Yes… to teach at your store, haha!
B – Best Friend – I love her to pieces!
C – Crush – Right now, I’m thinking of the turtle in Finding Nemo.
D – Dad’s Name – Crazy man who makes me laugh.

I – Instrument – I play the piano. Bet you didn’t know that one!
J – Job – I love my job. I get to be creative everyday.
K – Kids – I have TWO furkids. Does that count?

L – Longest Car Ride – The longest car ride I ever experienced was the one from Northern California up to British Columbia. Good thing I was much younger and don’t remember much of it.

N – Number Of Siblings – I have two brothers, one older and one younger.

O – One Wish – I wish that one day I’ll be sufficient.
P – Phobias – I have generalized anxiety disorder, meaning I can get anxiety over anything and everyone if I don’t have it under control. Good thing I’ve figured it out, hehe!

R – Reason To Smile – You.
S – Song You Last Heard – One Fine Wire by Colbie Caillat

X – X-Rays You’ve Had – The only ones I have ever had were the ones taken in my mouth.
Y – Your Favorite Food – I like all kinds of food, especially ethnic food. It’s always fun to try new and delightful things.
Z – Zodiac Sign – Pisces! …and no, I’m not that emotional, but I do have my head up in the clouds, lol.

  19. F- Favorite Quote

    Enjoy the little things
    for one day you may realize
    They were the big things!

    I found this quote on-line about nine years ago when I was a new mom to a very colicky baby. Motherhood was not quite what I thought it would be and this quote helped me to look at things
    differently and to appreciate the little things. Still something I think a lot about today.

  24. I’ll share with you my Q, favorite quote that I say:
    “Holy (fill in the blank) Batman!” For example, today my friend doused her fries with mountains of ketchup. I said, “Holy bunch of ketchup, Batman.” It works for so many different situations: “Holy Booger Hangin’ out of you nose, Batman,” “Holy giant diamond, Batman.” See?
