i’m a tardy and uncreative blogger today. sorry, friends! 🙂 i have much to update you on including the apartment showing yesterday, 3 meals out, and 3 delicious new food products that i tried this weekend!
i’m also taking a break from answering comments this weekend – if you’ve left me any in the past day or two, i will absolutely get to them tomorrow when i get back to madison. 🙂
but that will have to wait for another day, because today you get the abc’s of me
a. age: 25
b. bed size: queen – i slept in a twin bed until i was 23, and now i LOVE my “big girl bed” 🙂
c. chore you hate: folding laundry is my absolute least favorite chore. i leave it until i need to wear a particular item of clothing and then i shake it out and try to get the wrinkles out. oops.
d. dogs? yes of course! brad and i have capone! (wasn’t he a cute puppy?!)
i also think of my mom & stepdad’s dogs as “mine.” hoss & boone!
e. essential start your day item: the only thing i really do every single morning is hit the snooze button and put on my glasses or contacts immediately. i am SO BLIND without them.
f. favorite color: purple all the way! 🙂 i am also partial to blue because of my eyes.
g. gold or silver? silver for sure. i never wear gold jewelry
h. height: 5’4″
i. instruments you play: i took piano lessons for 5 years, but i think all i can do now is play a scale. i sang in choirs all through school though – our school choir and extracurricular ones! i loved it.
j. job title: research assistant, aka graduate student
k. kids: someday for sure! we want 2!
l. live: madison, wi – and i love it here! 🙂
m. mom’s name: debra
n. nicknames: sarah bear, goose, rose
o. overnight hospital stays: just when i was born!
p. pet peeve: being late and the incorrect spellings of they’re/their/there, its/it’s, and you’re/your, etc.
q. quote from a movie:
“whenever i get gloomy with the state of the world, i think about the arrivals gate at heathrow airport. general opinion’s starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but i don’t see that. it seems to me that love is everywhere. often it’s not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it’s always there – fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. when the planes hit the twin towers, as far as i know none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge – they were all messages of love. if you look for it, i’ve got a sneaky feeling you’ll find that love actually is all around.” -love actually
there were so many will ferrell quotes swirling around in my head for this question, but i couldn’t think of a specific favorite of them!
r. right or left handed? righty
s. siblings: yes, my lovely sister liz!
t. time you wake up: 6am monday-friday; as late as possible on saturday/sunday
u. underwear: yes always. nothing fancy though – usually the 5 for $25 ones from victoria’s secret.
v. vegetable you dislike: i honestly cannot think of a single vegetable that i don’t like. i like all of the “usual” disliked veggies: beets, brussels sprouts, cabbage, asparagus…. can you guys help me with this one? leave a comment to a veggie i might not like, please?
w. what makes you run late: i am honestly only late when i’m waiting on other people OR if i run into terrible traffic. but traffic isn’t usually even a problem because i give myself plenty of time to get places! i usually end up driving around to kill time so i’m not TOO early.
x. x-rays you’ve had done: lots – back and cervical spine, left ankle, dental
z. zoo, favorite animal: this is a hard one! i like giraffes, penguins, and monkeys. that’s as far as i can narrow it down!
ok, thanks for humoring me on this post. i hope you learned something new about me today!
now can you tell me your y and c?
yummy food you make and chore you hate. if you make a really good recipe, feel free to leave a link in the comments!
