The A to Z of Me

Nothing like going a month without blogging, and coming back with a silly meme. More fun stuff to come later.


A. Age: 29...looking forward to turning 30 next summer!

B.  Bed: Queen Size...which according the hubs I hog, and according me, he hogs!

C.  Chore the you hate doing: Putting away laundry...second only to putting away dishes from the dishwasher

D. Dogs: Right now, only 1: a hound mix named Sassy who is approximately 7 years old. She was a rescue from the SPCA. We've had her a little over 5 years...the vet estimated when we got her that she was about a year and a half old. We also run a kennel for friends and family. My sister's dogs, Lucky, the dauschand, Daisy, the beagle/lab mix, and Rufus, the golden retriever, are often frequent flyers over here. We also just finished keeping Willow, a Siberian Husky who caused us much strife, for a friend over seas. We thought we were getting a new puppy after Marching Season is over, but now that doesn't seem to be happening. I still really want another dog.

E. Essential to Start Your Day: Coffee. I think it's more a hot beverage than caffeine that gets me up and going in the morning.

F. Favorite Color: Probably red, although I realized my wardrobe was primarily reds and pinks, so now it's much more saturated with purples and blues. I really do think every color can be beautiful when given the proper attention.

G. Gold or Silver: Silver all the way.

H. Height: 5'10"

I. Instruments you play: I leave that to the hubs. He plays them all. I wish I played piano...apparently, when I was little, I was asked if I wanted lessons, refused, so they got my cousin to play. He no longer plays,  and I wish I did. I also played around with the idea of playing the flute in middle school, but decided I was better to stick with singing. I do sing-I still dream of being a broadway baby. I studied voice privately in college, but (obviously) never went anywhere with it.

J. Job title: Teacher. How boring. I did make up my own title, though, and they let me use it on my signature line: Associate Director of Dance. I'm also the Visual Ensemble Director and Calendar Guru at school. I have also been referred to as the Princess of Awesomeness (seriously).

K. Kids: None right now. I think we're going to start thinking a little more seriously next summer about it...if I decide to forgo my masters for now.

L. Live: Southeastern Virginia...in an area known for being a bit ghetto, and everyone famous from here is a bit notorious. Funny, if you go 20-30 minutes away, it's a much different atmosphere. I'd like to get there some day.

M. Mother's Name:  Ann...although to me, she's just Mom.

N. Nicknames: Hopey, Hopester, Hope-ifer, Action.

O. Overnight Hospital Stays: None-except for when I was born.

P. Pet Peeves: Stupid people. Seriously, just get over yourself and do what you know is right. Whistling. The obnoxious high pitched sounds my husband thinks is funny.

Q. Quotes from Movies: 

R. Right or Left Handed: Right

S. Siblings: 1 sister, 3 years younger than I am. We were not particularly close (though no bad blood either) till she had my nephew. Now we are significantly closer.

T. Time You Wake Up: I hate waking up...During the week, the alarm goes off at 5:15, and I'm out of bed by 5:45 (some mornings earlier than others). Most Saturdays, I'm up by 7 as I probably have to be somewhere. If I don't, it's usually around 8AM. I actually tell Sassy she can't wake me up before 8AM. We sometimes bargain in the mornings over it.

U. Underwear: I wear a variety of bikinis, lacy boy cuts, and g strings. It all depends on my mood and what I'm wearing.

V. Vegetable you hate: There are not many of those, but last year we got a whole bunch of Kale through our CSA. I now hate that vegetable. Don't bring it around me.

W. What makes you run late: Chores. "Lemme try to get one more thing done real quickly before I leave..." Although, honestly, I'm not often late.

X. Xrays you've had: Ankle, knee (multiple times), bladder (not fun at all), and my shoulder at least twice.

Z.  Zoo Animals: I love big cats. Lions, tigers, panthers...you name, I am in awe of their beauty.

I don't like zoos, but I too am in awe by big cats. My mom went on an African safari and got pictures of lions and tigers up close int heir natural habitat and I was so jealous and amazed!

I got kale overload last summer, it's been hard to get back into the swing of things with it!

Thanks for linking to your meme, it's fun to get to know you!

I am seriously envious of the tall ladies out there. Also, hurray for teachers!
