You want to know more?

Hi! I told you I was going to use these first couple weeks getting to know me. Don't want to sound like I'm all into myself or anything, but when I read a blog I like to feel like I know that person. I ran across this little ABC's of Me list on a blog I read and thought I'd give it a whirl and let you in on some fun facts about me. I don't want to bore you so please if you hate this skip over it and come back tomorrow. I'm working on a layout of my favorite place and I think you will like it.

Here we go.

A. Age:39
B. Bed size: A King... and dear Mr. P still only gives my my tiny corner :) He's kind of a bed hog and uses his very tall stature as an excuse for crowding my side!
C. Chore that you hate: cleaning the bathrooms... for sure!
D. Dogs: Molly is my cute baby. Funny I say that because I am not a dog person at all. I refused to get a dog for so long and finally was convinced against my better judgement to give in for the sake of my boys. Now she is my girl and I love her to pieces. Other dogs still aren't my thing. I think God knew which puppy I could handle!
E. Essential start to your day: Coffee... used to be totally caffeine free for over 15 years and then started some medication that makes me so sleepy. I'm hooked now.
F. Favorite color: Blue. I love different shades of blue. My best friend loves to make fun of me because my closet is full of blue and when we shop she knows I always go for that color first.
G. Gourmet or comfort: I definitely am more of a comfort food girl although if someone wants to cook me a gourmet meal I'll take it. 
H. Height: 5'4 (pretty much)
I. Instruments you play: None. I have no musical talent AT ALL. And you don't want to hear me sing...ask my kids!
J. Job title: Mom, mommy, mama, slave, chauffeur, cook, coordinator, scheduler, mess picker upper, wife, bill payer, nurse, etc. You get the picture.
K. Kids: Two boys, Nathan (14) and Chris (12). Both are growing up so quick and I am proud of the incredible boys they are. 
L. Live: Colorado. I am back home after living in Nebraska for ten years and a year and a half stint in Virginia/DC
M. Mother’s name: Barbara... an amazing woman.
N. Nicknames: I don't even want to go there. My dad had many nicknames for me, many and still calls me them to this day because "I'll always be his baby."
O. Overnight hospital stays: Both my boys births and gall bladder surgery.
P. Pet peeves: Constant, repetitive noises... cracking or popping knuckles or joints.
Q. Quote from a movie: Can't think of one!
R. Right or left handed: Right handed
S. Siblings: An older brother and an older sister both of whom I love dearly. My brother loves to tease me mercilessly but he's a good guy. My sister is like my best friend. 
T. Time it takes you to get ready: about an hour if I have to have the kids motivated and moving too. Just me and no interruptions, maybe 45 minutes.
U. Ultimate Vacation: A beach, full service resort, no plans, just chill and do what we want when we want, with my family.
V. Vegetable you hate: I actually like vegetables. Beets? Pretty nasty.
W. What makes you run late: My children! Ha. 
X. X-Rays you’ve had: My feet before and after surgery.
Y. Yummy food that you make: I love to cook, but I really love to bake. I just made the best homemade Lemon Blueberry Muffins. Total hit! Our friend Jason would say Hello Dollies are his favorite!
Z. Zoo animal: Bears. I like to see them move and definitely like that they are kept away from me.

Hope some of you made it to this point. I would love for you to pick a letter or two and comment telling me something about you.

Have a super day.



  1. Hey Lisa! New follower! Hope you come check my little blog out, too:

    This post was a lot of fun to read! A little about me: Letter I--Instruments you play--I used to play the piano, gave it up, but am now interested in picking it up again! Music has always been a huge part of my life, and now that the twinlets have come around, one of them is super interested in it, too! That fact alone just fascinates me!

    The second letter, M--Your Mothers' name: My mom's name is Alice; I was named after her, and (although we didn't plan it this way), Addison was named after me when she was born. (Had Maren been a boy, she would have been named after her daddy).

    Take care,


    1. Thanks for following, Ali! I will check out your blog too.

  2. Blue is my favorite color too! I have a lot of black in my closet though... I think because of its slimming quality. Ha!

    Would you kindly share your lemon blueberry muffin recipe with me? Miss you, Lisa. I am enjoying your blog. :)

  3. You don't like beets? Never knew. Did you know that I like them?

    1. You never noticed I didn't serve them for dinner when we had you over?? :)

  4. Thanks for sharing this w/ me! I agree it is fun to know more about the person you are following! Great little tidbits of you!
    I will have to "steal" this to post on my blog soon (hope you don't mind)!
    I liked "D" the most because I can relate. I hate dogs and yet when I inherited my granpa's poodle, when he died about 4 years ago, she and I became inseparable! She is sooo my baby and I love her to pieces! Some days even more than my kids!!! My daughter gets jealous some times but I tell her it's because Ivanna, thats my dog's name, doesn't talk back! Hahahahahahaha! It's a shame Ivanna is 13 years old and probably won't be around very much longer! :0(


Thank you for your comments. I appreciate each one that comes in.
