ABC's of Me, etc.

Thanks to the lovely scheduled post feature on Blogger when you read this post I'll be here:

Vail, Colorado

Doing some of this:

Along with eating, maybe a little spa-ing and some stitching too.   Lucky me gets to tag along with hubby on a business trip!

I've really enjoyed reading everyone's ABC's of me and thought I'd play along.

A - Age: 37
B - Bed size: King
C - Chore you hate: It’s a toss up between cleaning bathrooms and grocery shopping
D - Dog's name: Oscar
E - Essential start of the day item: My lemon/raspberry mix Herbal Life tea
F - Favorite color: Pink, though I don’t wear a lot of it
G - Gold or Silver: Silver
H - Height: 5’6”
I - Instruments you play: Organ (super rusty now though) French Horn and Alto Clarinet in school
J - Job: Domestic Engineer, AKA The Best Job Ever or Mom’s Taxi Service
K - Kids: 2, Daughter 15, Son 13
L - Living arrangements: In a lovely house with my hubby, kids, Oscar and our cat Pumpkin

M - Music you love: Almost everything, for stitching I like something soothing in the background like Michael Buble, Josh Groban. I also play Jim Reeves a lot; it makes me feel close to my Gramma.  Guilty pleasure is 80's Hair Bands like Def Leppard, Poison, Bon Jovi, etc.
N - Nicknames: Meadows or Meadsie, I was given those nicknames by my hubby’s college friend 18 years ago and it’s stuck. Hubby calls me every endearment under the sun, so much so, it’s weird to hear him call me by my first name
O - Overnight hospital: Tonsillectomy at 11, when my kids were born
P - Pet Peeve: Men who wear swim trunks as shorts!!! FYI, if there is mesh inside an item of clothing you don’t wear them outside of a pool!
Q - Quote from a movie: Every line from Love Actually

R - Right handed or left: Right
S - Siblings: 1 brother
T - Time you wake up: 6:00 am, I like a bit of quiet before the craziness of the day begins
U - Underwear: No VPL (Visible Panty Lines) in the words of Stacy & Clinton of What Not To Wear

V - Vegetable you dislike: Mushrooms, they taste like dirt though I cook them all the time for my son and husband
W - Workout Style: Bootcamp, I like to sweat
X - X-rays you've had: Dental
Y - Yummy food you make: The best Chocolate Lava cakes ever! And Champagne Risotto
Z - The best place to visit: I LOVED Europe. After that it’s my parent’s acreage in Alberta, it’s so relaxing there

...and now you know my ABC's, won't you play along with me?
