I'm totally stealing today's blog post from @algebrasfriend! :) I love the #MTBoSBlaugust prompt about 20 facts, but I was stumped on what to share. That's when Beth came to the rescue with her alphabet facts. :) Thanks Beth! :)
A - Age: Ugh... do I really have to tell that? :) I did realize today that I am now half of my mom's age. :)
B – Birthdate: Today!!! :) Happy Birthday to ME! :)
C - Chore you hate: Washing dishes! Although to be honest, I'm really not a huge fan of any chore :)
D – Drink: If I'm drinking pop, then Diet Mtn Dew. But a few weeks ago I had the plumber out to run water to my fridge, so I've been drinking tons of water (with 2 squirts of Mio Lemonade!)
E - Essential to start your day item: In the summer, a cup of a coffee, a morning walk, and quiet time! When school is in session, same thing minus the walk. :)
F - Favorite color: Purple :)
G – Gent: My wonderful hubby, who does this blogging thing daily and I still can't figure out how or why! :)
H - Height: 5'8"
I - Instruments you play: None. In 6th grade, I tried to play the clarinet and flute... my poor daddy's ears :( Then in 7th grade, I begged my mom for piano lessons... that lasted two years and I was still pretty rough around the edges.
J - Job title: Math teacher plus many other hats (AVID Coordinator, PD Coordinator, Tech person, etc)
K - Kid(s): None... unless fur babies count! In that case, we have 3 cats and 2 ferrets :)
L - Loves: hubby, my family, my friends, my church, reading, the MTBoS
M – Music: rarely. But I grew up on old hymns and southern gospel. My mom played the piano for our church (still does actually!), so those are my go-to when I'm stressed
N - Nicknames: None really that I can think of
O – One wish: I would love to be a bit more "happy-go-lucky" sometimes.
P – Pet: See the Kids prompt above :)
Pet Peeve: Lack of ambition
Q - Quote from a movie: "I can't talk now, we have cows!" -Twister :)
R – Residence: Oklahoma. I've always lived within 90 miles of my birthplace.
S - Siblings: 2 biological sisters, 1 step-sister, 4 step-brothers. My parents divorced when I was a toddler and married my step-parents the following year, so my step-siblings have been around my entire life.
T - Time you wake up: Officially my alarm is set for 5:30 :) I aim to leave the house during the school year by 6:30.
U – University: A small regional university in Oklahoma.
V - Vegetable you dislike: Peas. They have zero flavor to me
W – Worst habit: Oh my, there are so many! How about "not saying NO!" :)
X - X-Rays: Not in years that I recall. I've never broke a bone
Y - Yummy food you make: My go-to recipe is pulled pork
Z - Zoo favorite: The monkeys... and the big cats :)
