ABCs of Me!

I have gotten some new readers lately so I thought I would spend sometime introducing myself to you all... that, and I am in a little bit of a blogging block I thought I would give you the ABC's of me.

A. Age: 31. Ugh. I guess it could be worse. 

B. Bed size: Queen. This weekend in the hotel we had a king size bed and it was wonderful. However, we just bought our mattress and the husband said there was no way we were getting a new one. 

C. Chore you hate: Folding clothes. I. Hate. It. 

D. Dogs: Gus. I also have two cats. 

E. Essential start to your day: This might be gross, but I really like cleaning my ears in the morning.

F. Favorite color: pink. 

G. Gold or Silver: silver or white gold.

H. Height: 5'4" 1/2 (that half inch is very important to me)

I. Instruments you play: In 5th grade I played the saxophone. Does that count?

J. Job Title: Middle school health teacher

K. Kids: I have like 900 kids at work

L. Live: Independence, Oregon. 

M. Married: since June 26, 2010

N. Nicknames: My students call me Teacher some times. And a few people still call me "Swinney" (it was a shortened version of my maiden name)

O. Overnight hospital stays: None. 

P. Pet Peeve:  When someone is too busy texting/checking their phone when you are hanging out with them . 

Q. Quote: "Secrets secrets are no fun, secrets secrets hurt someone." That is pretty much the only quote I can think of right now. 

R. Righty or Lefty:  Right. 
One time I asked my class this question and  I mentioned that left handed people have shorter life spans because of accidents and things. Apparently this really offended one of my left handed students and he refused to do work for my class for two months. 

S. Siblings: 2 brothers. They were in high school when I was born.
T. Time you wake up:  My alarm goes off at the awful time of 5:15am. I am usually out of bed by 5:30-5:40.
U. University attended: Western Oregon University.

V. Vegetables you dislike: Beets. Yuck. I am the only person in my family that doesn't like them. Ew and peas. Those are even worse than beets. 

W. What makes you run late: I really hate to be late, so I tend to be early. But traffic is probably the main reason I am ever late.  

X. X-ray vision or the ability to fly? I would love to fly please. :) 

Y. Yummy food: My dinner last night was pretty yummy, Kraft Mac & Cheese and oven roasted zucchini.

Z. Zoo animal favorite: Giraffes :)

Have you done one of these? Let me know!

Beets are the worst food ever. I gag as soon as I smell them. And I have a weird habit of picking dry skin off my ears...and Scott's when he feels like letting me. So gross, right??

Erika said...

I especially like your pastor's face in the wedding picture. Apparently yall were hilarious to wed?? :) And I totally share your pet peeve!!

Beets are one of the only foods I dislike. GROSS. My husband loves them.

I hate being late too!

Alison said...

Yuck. Beets!

Your wedding picture is adorable. You both look beautiful!

Hahha, your quote is also awesome. Isn't that from Cat in the Hat?

Jen said...

I love your wedding picture, so gorgeous! :) Yay for Giraffes they are the best.

Angi said...

Wow...apparently I'm the only person in the world left who absolutely adores beets...haha! I like them steamed on a a slaw...just any which way. Beets are amazing.

We are almost the same height, I'll have you know. I think I have about 1/8th of an inch on you.

Oh, and folding clothes is AWFUL.

I don't even think I've ever had a beet. I'll count myself lucky.

I used to be at least 20-30 minutes early for work. This year, I've been getting there only 5-10 minutes before I'm supposed to be there. I don't KNOW what's making me late. I just can't get moving!

Michelle said...

That picture of you is gorgeous!!!

Ughhh I hate peas too!! I haven't had beets much, but they weird me out.

I love that your student got offended over your left handed comment. That's so funny. My dad is left handed and whines about it all the time.
