The ABC's of Me
I'm participating in an event on the voiceBoks website called "The ABC's of Me", encouraging mom bloggers to get to know one another. So here goes!
A - Autumn. My favorite season is fall/autumn. The indulgent colors, the hearty soups, the warm sweaters.
B - "Bangin' Bangs" I don't know that I would classify my bangs as "bangin'" but I did get them cut in recently and am very happy. I heard that quote while watching the finale of So You Think You Can Dance. Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Modern Family) was a guest judge and he said his favorite dance was the tango done by Caitlyn - a.k.a. the girl with the "bangin' bangs".
C - Cabernet Sauvignon - My favorite type of wine.
D - Dislikes: Change, manipulative people, dishonesty, betrayal, rudeness, being controlled.
E - Energy vampires suck. Quite literally. Something I have learned recently.
F - Fantasy Football. I've become quite a fan. I joined my husband's league this year (and last) and started my own "ladies-only league" this year.
G - Google search freak.
H - Happy.
I - Inquisitive. And proud that my daughter is as well.
J - Jaegermeister. Can.Not.Handle. Have you ever tasted a Tiger Eye? Shiver. Shiver. Shiver.
K - Kids - My pride and joy.
L - Loved. That's the meaning of my name, or "she who must be loved". That sounds like an order. The baby name book says so.
M - Mom, Mama, Mommy, Ma'am, Mandi, me. More on ma'am later.
N - Not much of a meat-lover.
O - Oldest. I am the oldest of two children. My sister is seven years younger than me.
P - People-person. As long as they're not jerks and stuff.
Q - Quote: "Each day of our lives we make deposits in the memory banks of our children." (Charles R. Swindoll)
R - Read-a-holic.
S - Southpaws. Both of my children are left-handed.
T - Taurus - my astrological sign. Steady, determined, stubborn, creative, kind, habitual, loyal.
U - Ughten. Today's dictionary word. Ughten means morning twilight.
V - Vanilla. My favorite scent for candles, body spray, lotion. I also like vanilla ice cream. Slathered with chocolate syrup.
W - Words with Friends. Slowly becoming addicted.
X - X-rays. Only of my teeth. I've never broken a bone in my life.
Y - Yard. I love spending time in my backyard. It's where my garden is. Tea on the back patio? Don't mind if I do.
Z - Zesty. Z's are hard. Zebra? Zoo? Zealous? Zipper? Zone? Zinger? Zen? Zin? Oh, yeah. I also like Zinfandel. Old Zin.
I hope you had fun reading my ABC's and learned something about me while you were here. If you have an ABC list, let me know in the comments so I can swing by!
