ABC's of Me

I have seen this several places over blogland the last few weeks and my friend over at Flaming June on the Run tagged me in this so I thought it would make for a fun, lighthearted post for the week.  I'm working at scheduling my posts for the next week or two due to the beginning of school.

A. Attached or Single? Single- but okay with that- see why HERE

B. Best Friend?  I don't know- I don't really have a "BEST" friend.  I have several friends that are really good/great friends but I don't know who would fall into that category.

C. Cake or Pie? Pie- but honestly I prefer cheesecake (and especially the filling)

D. Day of the week?  oh, I suppose it would be Saturday and Sunday (yes, I know that's two)- for multiple reasons: I get to spend time with my church family, I'm off of work and they are race days :)

E. Essential Item?  My phone- being six hours away from family it's how I keep in touch with my mom, dad, and sister! I can also read books and my Bible on the phone!

F. Favorite Color?  I would have to go with turquoise!  I love all shades of the color!

G. Gummy Bears or Gummy Worms? neither
H. Hometown?  That depends- I grew up in the midwest: Ohio- Akron, Massilon, Danville and Indiana- Fortville and Terre Haute.  However, out of the last 20 years I have lived 18 of them (college years included) in Knoxville!  I don't have the hometown listed on FB either because I don't know what to put! 
I. Favorite Indulgence?  Cheesecake!  Or White chocolate M&M's  oh yeah, and some diet mtn. dew along with some diet dr. pepper with cherry added in

J. January or July?  both!?  January because it's snowy and July because I am out of school (but it's HOT)

K. Kids? Nope (well, none of my own- I have 15 on a daily basis)- and I am okay with this- you can see that post HERE
L. Life isn't complete without? my relationship with Christ.  It's not always easy and it doesn't always make sense but I know that I "can live in confidence with Christ in a fearful world" (Jim Jeffries in yesterday's message)

M. Marriage Date? still waiting on that :)

N.  Number of Brothers/Sisters?  I have one sister (and a brother in law)

O. Oranges or Apples?  Apples all the way!

P. Phobias?  Mice and some spiders!  I do NOT like mice!  

Q. Favorite Quote?  The following is just ONE of my faves!  I really like C.S. Lewis!


R. Reason to Smile?  I'm alive, I have an amazing family, a job I like, and am watching God work in my life daily!

S. Season of Choice?  I like them all- for different reasons: Spring- the newness and seeing how everything is growing; Summer- I am out of school and can have a little more freedom; Fall- because it's going to be cooler and everything is just crisp and fresh; and Winter- because I love a newly fallen snow and the peacefulness around it.

T. Tag 5 People.  I'm going to be honest- I am not going to tag 5 people- but if you decide to play along (or if you have already) and want to share the link I would love to read it!

U. Unknown Fact About Me? I don't drink or smoke, I love to travel, and I want to get my personal trainer certification (that will come after I am done at IIN)
V. Favorite Vegetable? zucchini!  or Broccoli (but mainly zucchini)
W. Worst Habit? picking at my nails- I don't bite my nails but I do pick at them.
X. X-ray or Ultrasound? neither!  I have had both and don't like either of them :)
Y. Your Favorite Food?wow- just one?  I don't even know that I can pick one- if I had to- Trader Joe's sunbutter (made from sunflower seeds)
Z. Zodiac Sign?  Gemini but that means absolutely nothing to me!

Fun! M&Ms are my all time fav and yet I had no idea they have white chocolate. I guess it's been a while since I've bought M&Ms :)

Gummy? My answer would be neither too!

Interesting. I may have to check into doing this and putting it on my blog.

I'm glad you played! I really did learn a lot about you - and found out we have some things in common! I'm a nail picker too (ha!)

TJ's sun butter is the best :) I like how you said you have 15 kids, too...that's how I feel when people ask me if I have any yet (well 2 not 15 anymore haha, but I used to be able to say 14-17 depending on the week haha) :P

Suz and Allan said...

Love your favorite quote!

Tami said...

Jill- the white chocolate are only found at target!

Tami said...

Dad- I think I could figure out most of your answers (but not all)

Tami said...

FJ- I need to learn to leave well enough alone- I get them growing and then pick at them!

Tami said...

Caitlin- for this gal who can't have anything PB anymore the TJ's sun butter really hits the spot! Oh yes, as a teacher you really do have more than biological kids!

Tami said...

Suz- it's hard to pick one but that is one that really stuck out to me when I started on this journey to become a health coach!
