The ABC’s of Me

Getting to know me a little better.

There has been a kind of game going on for a while in the blogger world, bloggers have been doing the “ABCs of Me” post.a I wanted to participate because I know that I enjoy learning more about the bloggers I read on a personal level. So here are the ABC’s of me. I hope you enjoy.

Me at the UTSA game

A – Age:  26

B – Biggest Fear: Well let’s get serious then! My biggest fear is dying slowly and painfully like by cancer or drowning.

C – Current Time: 12:39 p.m.

D – Drink You Had Last: Fun drink or normal drink? I am currently sipping on some Ozarka but last night I had a Cabernet Sauvignon.

E – Easiest Person To Talk To: Depending on the topic…Karen, Michelle or Daniel.

F – Favorite Song: So many. A beautiful mess by Jason Mraz or Gravity by Sara Barilles.

G – Grossest Memory: Off the top of my head it would be the time I was SUPER hungover. I finally drug myself out of bed and was driving to get food, while chugging Poweraid. A wave of nausea hit me and I threw up partly all over myself partly in the Poweraid bottle. So gross!

H – Hometown: Waco, TX

I –  In Love With: Pizza!

J – Jealous Of: This is going to sound like an job interview answer. I think I’m jealous/ inspired by bloggers like Melyssa from The Nectar Collective or Lauren Boweling from LBee and the Money Tree, who are living the dream. I’m more inspired than jealous because they found something they loved , are making a living doing it and helping people. That’s my plan!

K – Kindest Person You Know: My mom. She takes care of everyone.

L – Life Isn’t Complete Without: Pizza! Wine. Friends. Laughter. Music. Love

M – Middle Name: Don’t have one. I swear!

N – Number of Siblings: 3 sisters! One brother who has passed away. R.I.P. Shawn.

O – One Wish: To eat as much pizza as I want and still lose weight lol jk kinda…. I wish that things would get better in the world. I wish we lived driven by love instead of hate.

P – Person You Spoke To On The Phone Last: Someone calling for my boss. Personally, my Mom.

Q – Question You’re Always Asked: “What do you do?” Followed by “What do you blog about?” I feel like I meet a lot of people and so my standard response to “What to do you do,” is “I’m the Marketing Director at a Commercial Real Estate Company and I’m a freelance writer and I have a women’s lifestyle blog.

R – Reason To Smile: It’s almost lunch time and I’m having pizza! (No lie!)

S – Song You Last Sang: Currently singing and listening to “Haven’t Met You Yet,” by the lovely Michael Buble.

T – Time You Woke Up: What time did my alarm go off or what time did I wake up? 7:15 a.m. and 8:05 a.m.

U – Underwear Color: Black! So sexy!

V – Vacation Destination: The next known vacation is Los Angeles, CA for Blogher16 in August! Woot Woot! But I hope to take a trip before that.

W – Worst Habit: I do a lot of “bad” things. I drink, I swear like a fish, I say “yes” too much but the worst is not getting enough sleep.

X – X-Rays You’ve Had: My ankle, my breasts (is a mammogram an x-ray?), back and spine after my car accidents and (I’m sure my friends will get a laugh out of this one but) I’ve had my head-x-rayed!

Y – Your Favorite Food: Italian…Pizza! Are you seeing a theme?

Z – Zodiac Sign: Cancer! I’m sensitive and moody! But loving and fun. 🙂
