A-B-C, Introducing Me

There's a lot going on in our house right now. Scott is pulling serious hours at work - when I say serious, I mean like 36 hours of non-stop work - and today my little man is having an out-patient procedure that requires anesthesia. So, I'm kind of a big train wreck right now...

With that said, here's a light little post for a day that (for me) feels a bit heavy.

{A} Age: 29... a few more months before I say buh-bye to my 20s.
{B} Bed size: Queen, and nowhere near large enough.
{C} Chore you hate: The cat litter. It was so nice when being pregnant excused me from that chore.
{D} Dogs: 1 chocolate lab who thinks he's a lap dog rather than a small horse.
{E} Essential start to your day: Coffee. Lots and lots of coffee.
{F} Favorite color: Blue, almost any shade. 
{G} Gold or Silver: Silver... But, right now I'm on a gold kick. 
{H} Height: 5' 7"
{I} Instruments you play: None. Growing up I played piano and trombone (baha!).
{J} Job Title: Full-time mom.
{K} Kids: Marcus - 10 months.
{L} Live: Southern California.
{M} Married: Two years and some change. 
{N} Nicknames: Most of my friends call me Des. There is another nickname that only a handful of people can get away with, and my husband is not included in that handful. As to what that nickname is, if you're one of the few then I guess you know. :)
{O} Overnight hospital stays: Ugh, when I broke my arm (2 night stay), and Marcus' birth (3 night stay).
{P} Pet peeve: I cannot stand the sound of someone chewing food if I'm not chewing also, I kind of go crazy. People who don't use their blinkers while driving. Runners who have the option to run on a sidewalk but choose the road (WTH? Get off the road!)
{Q} QuoteReach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul.  Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
{R} Righty or Lefty: Righty.
{S} Siblings: One younger brother. 
{T} Time you wake up: Marcus is my alarm... Generally he wakes me between 5:00 and 5:30.
{U} University attended: Iowa State University - CyclONE Nation. Proud to be ONE!
{V} Vegetables you dislike: Lima beans. I gag just thinking about eating them.
{W} What makes you run late: Not having all the baby essentials (bottles, toys, extra clothes, etc.) prepped when we are ready to walk out the door.
{X} X-Rays you've had: Several for my ankle growing up playing sports, my OBVIOUSLY broken arm (I literally had to hold my arm to keep it from flopping all over), one of my knee from a snowmobile accident, one of my neck, several of my teeth.
{Y} Yummy food: Mashed potatoes, ice cream/frozen yogurt.
{Z} Zoo animal favorite: Giraffe!!

Thanks Sarah for sharing this fun idea!

And, just for kicks, my little man at breakfast yesterday. Love those cheeks.
I sure hope my monkey is feeling this well by the end of the day.


  1. What a cute blog idea I will stash this away for a time when I need something to blog about! Hope Marcus feels better real soon :)

  2. No prob Bob! And ooooooo it drives me BONKERS about runners in the street too! Do they think the road pavement is softer than the sidewalk? Um, NO! And 5am? Now I see why all the coffee! Have you ever tried to see if he'll go back to sleep?

  3. I hope Marcus is feeling better!!! I so enjoy your posts about him. He is SUCH a cutie!

  4. a) I would LOVE to have a really furry fat cat IF there was no such thing as cat litter! b) so jealous of socal c) go Cyclones!!! and d) THOSE CHEEKS!!
