A to Z - Some more stuff about me

So all the cool kids are filling out this blogger survey that kind of reminds me of those fun surveys we all used to do back when Facebook was first a thing.  I'm all about lists, talking about myself too much and writing basic fluff when other ideas just aren't coming to me, so guess what I'm doing today?  You got it, I'm going to be one of the cool kids! (Thanks to AllisonSara and Laura for the inspiration!)

The A to Z's of Beth

Age: 33

Biggest Fear: Talked about this last week in a similar "about me" list, I fear sudden loud noises, fast moving bugs with many legs and losing my loved ones.

Current Time: 8:15 am

Drink You Last Had: Water

Easiest Person to Talk To: Does it count if I actually say my cats?  Because I can talk to them and they just listen!  

Favorite Song: I don't think I can pick one!  I will just say that I love me some Neko Case, Josh Groban, Decemberists, old school 80's like Journey, 70's stuff like Fleetwood Mac and current stuff like Taylor Swift.  There.  It's a mishmash in my iTunes for sure!

Grossest Memory: Well, there was the time I came down with a stomach virus right in the middle of rehearsal for our church talent show when I was around 13 and didn't quite make it into the stall in time in the restroom (and there was a stain on the floor for a long time after, even worse right?). There was also the infection I got after my wisdom teeth surgery when I was 16.  There were a couple of infections involving piercings in my 20's and even my 30's.  Infections are just gross.  And I'm with Sara, elements of childbirth are pretty gross too.  

Hometown: Minneapolis (well the northeast suburbs anyway!)

In love with: Well I could be sappy and say my husband and my son.  But I think that's a given.  So I will instead say I am in love with the place that I live. One of the things I love most about living in Minnesota is that while we might not love everything about all of them, we experience all four seasons and I really do enjoy that!

Jealous of: I will admit to being jealous of the moms I know that have made their situation work out for them to be stay at home moms.  I should have planned differently before we had Ollie, but I didn't and so I need to work.  It is what it is.

Kindest person you know: I know a lot of kind people actually, I'm pretty lucky to be surrounded by kind hearted people, but if I had to pick right now I'd say Megan and Nora from two birds (miss their blog so much this summer!) are two of the nicest people I've ever met.  They would give you the shirt off of their back and practically have in a literal sense for me, I've been the lucky recipient of clothes from them (and Ollie has too!) but I've been even luckier to be a recipient of their friendship.  These ladies are seriously the real deal, they're just great people.  

Longest relationship: My husband - we've been together as a whole for over 16 years and married for 9 of them.  And we were friends for years before we were a couple.

Middle Name: Ann

Number of siblings: Zero.  I'm not a lonely only though!  I have written many thoughts on being an only child and the fact that I'm likely raising an only child.  I feel like I'm pretty well adjusted and I think he will be as well.

One wish: I wish that I could find a career that was slightly more fulfilling than the one I currently have.  I'm working on it though. 

Person you last spoke to on the phone: Nate last night telling me he was just leaving his last client for the day and would be getting home a little late.

Question you're always asked: I can think of two right now - I've been asked when I'm going to have another child (polite answer: we're enjoying our time with our son and not worrying about that right now.  Less polite answer: Screw you, none of your business.) The other question I get asked a lot is when I tell people I have a blog "What do you blog about?" The short answer to that of course is "well, my life!"

Reason to smile: Ollie always gives me at least one reason to smile each day - even when he's being naughty he cracks me up, it's hard not to laugh at that kid!

Song you sang last: Fight Song by Rachel Platten was on in the car on my way to work and I've recently discovered I like to belt that one at the top of my lungs.  

Time you woke up: 6:00 am.  Yep.  The life of a working mama.

Underwear color: White with light blue flowers.  TMI?  Oh well!

Vacation Destination: I love to travel and wish we could do it more often!  I love going "up north" in Minnesota to Itasca or Duluth.  I'm super excited that Nate and I are planning our anniversary trip next year to...wait for it...Jamaica!  Yeah mon!!

Worst Habit: Ugh this is is so gross you guys and people who've known me for years know I struggle with this one - I pick the skin around my fingers.  It's so disgusting.  I actually quit for a year once - I made it an entire year and then I "fell off the wagon" so to speak.  It's a nervous tick, sometimes I don't even know I'm doing it.  I hope I haven't grossed you all out, maybe by admitting this I will give another go at stopping!

X-Rays You've Had: Fortunately I've only had mouth x-rays at the dentist and I suppose if we count ultrasounds while pregnant than I had several of those while pregnant with Ollie.

Your Favorite Food: I've talked about this a number of times - cheese.  Anything cheese.  Yes I love cookies and chocolate and sweets but I'll take cheese before sweets nine times out of ten!

Zodiac Sign: Sagittarius.  I've never felt like it really matches me though.

So there you have it!  It's always fun sharing a little more about me!  I'd love to know more about you, if you decide to fill this out on your own blog, let me know so I can read along!
