The ABCs of me

Kat from Sassy Irish Lassie tagged me with this meme earlier this week and despite my initial enthusiasm at writing this, the events of the last few days have completely drained my ability to even think about this blog. Even now, as I'm writing this, I should be doing something else. I should be paying attention to my work, but seriously, I have an obligation here, so I'm going to do it. Here goes:

A. Attached or single? Attached.

B. Best friend? Besides my sister, I'd have to say that I couldn't possibly choose one superb friend over the other.

C. Cake or pie? Cake. Definitely, cake.

D. Day of choice? Saturday, because it's the only full day of the week my family has together.

E. Essential item? Lipstick.

F. Favorite color? Pink.

G. Gummy bears or worms? Gummy bears.

H. Hometown? Drexel Hill, PA. It's a suburb of Philadelphia.

I. Indulgence? Cadberry Cream Eggs. I am so addicted to them that I'll only allow myself to eat one a year and only on Easter.

J. January or July? July. I hate everything about the winter, so July wins.

K. Kids? I've got 2.5. Sophia, 2, Ryan, 11 months and my stepson, Jonathan, 14.

L. Life isn’t complete without? My family.

M. Marriage date? April 21, 2001.

N. Number of brothers & sisters? One sister and one brother.

O. Oranges or apples? I think I'd have to say oranges, but I like apples too.

P. Phobias? Heights. I get so afraid that my body actually freezes and I cannot move.

Q. Quotes? Live to fight another day. I'm not sure who originally said it, but it was my Mom who said it to me.

R. Reasons to smile? Every day, when I pick up my kids from daycare, Sophia jumps up and down and runs to the door to greet me with a big hug. Then we go to Ryan's classroom where Sophia runs to greet her little brother and they nearly knock each other with hugs.

S. Season of choice? Spring. I love the feeling of shaking off winter, when the days get longer and the sun gets warmer and it's too cool for shorts, but too warm for a coat.

T. Tag some peeps! Tag, you're it! Anyone who is reading this and wants to do it, go ahead. It is fun.

U. Unknown fact about me? I traveled to Israel and Poland on a study mission with the Anti-Defamation League the summer before my senior year in college. During the very educational and eye-opening trip, I went to a night club in Jerusalem and met an Israel solider. We talked for hours and shared drinks and cigarettes and ended our evening with a kiss that I'd like to say was passionate and beautiful, but I don't remembered the details because we shared a few too many drinks.

V. Vegetable? Hmmm, I like eggplant, but I don't really have a favorite.

W. Worst habits? Not changing the kitty litter.

X. X-ray or ultrasound? Well, if the question is which one have I had, I've had both. But, if the question is which on I prefer, I'd have to say ultrasound. The reason for an X-ray is never good.

Y. Your favorite food? My Mom's lasagna.

Z. Zodiac sign? Pisces and it describes me perfectly.

Now that you've been totally bored by my tendency to give out too much information, I have another announcement. DC Urban Dad awarded me a brilliant blogger award this week (there's a badge for this, but I can't seem to find the code for it). Yes, it's true, last week I was an ass-kicker and this week I am brilliant. I can't even believe it myself. Thanks DC, I really appreciate it!

Hi! Found you over at mamasphere. Love the answers to this meme. I feel like I instantly know you. Where is Drexel Hill from Lancaster County? I spent 2 weeks there in August and fell in love with the countryside. Seriously, I could move there. I also went to Kennett Square to visit Longwood Gardens, which was one of the highlights of my trip besides seeing fireflies! Can you tell I am from out west--desert country?
