So, I saw this on my Blogger Friend, Candice's, post. It's a creative way of telling the world a little more about yourself.
A - Age: 33
B - Bed size: KING -- And we love it. We converted from a Queen to a King a little over two years. We will NEVER go back.
C - Chore you hate: Mopping the kitchen and bathrooms AND vacuuming (anything with floors)
D - Dog's name: Used to be "Clyde" -- This past summer, we actually gave her away for several reasons. She now is with another family.
E - Essential start your day item: Going to the Bathroom
F - Favorite color: Blue
G - Gold or Silver: Silver
H - Height: 5'2"
I - Instruments you play: Piano, Clarinet, Bassoon (though I don't personally own a bassoon -- I did play in high school and in college)
J - Job title: Wife, Mom, Homemaker, Babysitter, Payroll/Safety Administrator
K - Kid(s): Luke
L - Living arrangements: In our wonderful home in our wonderful neighborhood in Newton, KS -- Living with husband Marc and son Luke
M - Mom's name: Mary

S - Siblings: One Brother, Joel, who is two years younger than me
T - Time you wake up: I wake up early when Marc's alarm goes off (6 ish). I get up between 7:30 and 8:00 -- depending on Luke.
U - Underwear: Yes, I wear them -- not the skimpy type and not the Grandma type
V - Vegetable you dislike: Are olives vegetables? I really dislike them.
W - Workout style: Hour long walks with the jogging stroller
X - X-rays you've had: Chest x-ray (had weird left side pain my freshmen year in college -- turned out to be a pulled muscle), dental x-rays, x-ray of my reproductive system during infertility testing
Y - Yesterday's best moments: Watching Luke snack on Fruit Loops while we were trimming his hair in the kitchen (too cold outside)
Z - Zoo favorite: Giraffes
And, just because I can't do a blog post without a photo -- here's one that pertains to my "W" (workout). Most of you know that I do walk quite a bit with Luke in the jogging stroller. Well, it was rather chilly outside today with the wind. But, I still wanted a walk -- though we did cut it considerably shorter than normal. I bundled Luke up to the point where he could barely move, and we went out. He maintained a pretty good attitude, and I did get a brief walk.
It was the first time he's really worn mittens. He wasn't quite sure what to do with them.
