Me in a Nutshell

I borrowed this little A-Z post from Keisha. I have some new followers up in here so I thought it would be a good "get to know me" type of deal. Plus, let's face it after yesterday's post of sappy substance - we need to keep it light hearted! (Thank you by the way for every single one of you who reached out to me and shared your story or offered me encouragement - LOVE YOU ALL!)

A. Age: Yikes recently turned the big 2-8...but if anybody asks you I'm 27, k?
B. Bed size: Queen and it's still not big enough for just me. I like to sprawl out!
C. Chore you hate: Going to the grocery store. I would trade any chore for that one.
D. Dogs: Everybody loves Ms. Tilly!

E. Essential start to your day: A hot shower. Caffeine. Kiss from Tilly out the door.
F. Favorite color: Pink
G. Gold or Silver: Have you met me?? Gold...preferably gold glitter. I do wear more silver jewelry though.
H. Height: too short for how wide I am! BAHAHA! I'm 5'4"
I. Instruments you play: I attempted to play the clarinet in 6th grade band and got kicked out and put in chorus. I dabble a little in piano. I would love to play banjo!
J. Job Title: Business Development Coordinator - it's just a fancy marketing title
K. Kids: No thank you!
L. Live:

M. Married: That's a negative! Ouch! {See the past 2.5 months of sorrow in my life.. or yesterday's post.}
N. Nicknames: Most of the people call me Nik...creative, I know.
O. Overnight hospital stays: None surprisingly. Many day stays and scary hospital trips, but no overnight ones...yet?
P. Pet Peeve: People who chew loudly...don't use their blinkers when turning...take up mirror space at the gym just staring at their muscles...don't laugh at my jokes..I could go on for dayssss
Q. Quote:  New favorite as of yesterday... If you want to see all my favs you can see them here on Pinterest.

R. Righty or Lefty: Righty tighty
S. Siblings: Dylan, my handsome crazy redneck baby brother

T. Time you wake up: 6:30 am weekdays, usually around 8-8:30 weekends
U. University attended: University of Tennessee, Knoxville - GO VOLS!
V. Vegetables you dislike: Beets? Is that a veggie, hmmm I don't know? I really love most of them!
W. What makes you run late: being hungover...hey! It happens!
X. X-rays you've had: broken arm, leg, chest/collar bone, head, broken toe, back...all kinds!
Y: Yummy food: Japanese food - hibachi, sushi...that's my fav! I didn't get to looking this way by not eating yummy food.
Z. Zoo Animal: Hippos - I used to have an obsession with hippos back in the day. Loved them!

Ok, I’m just realizing how similar we are! I hate the grocery store more than anything, worst chore ever! My fave color is pink – obvi. I played the clarinet when I was in 6th grade, I was TERRIBLE! Continued to play it in 7th and 8th only cuz the cool kids were doing it… I also work in Marketing  Also, for some reason I’m just putting 2 and 2 together, by Best Friend from 1st grade lives in Harrogate, TN I think that’s like an hour from Knoxville? Her boyfriend is going to Med school there! Oh and did I mention my best friend’s name is Nikki? Crazy! Oh and PS – I think I’m stealing this post! Longest comment EVER!

Julie Marie said...

I dabbled in clarinet and piano too! Plus the saxophone. I kept at that for at least 3 years. woo hoo. I think I still could play LaBamba! :)

Betsy said...
