Howdy blogging world! Emily over at Daily Garnish did a fun post a while ago and I thought it would be neat to do too. It is the ABCs of me….
A. Age: Proudly 37! Women get better as they age…
B. Bed size: Queen – but with a hubby who likes to sleep sideways and 2 small children that like to make guest appearances, it feels like a twin bed.
C. Chore you dislike: Emptying the dishwasher.
D. Dogs: Sasha, our gorgeous Border Collie, Australian Shepard, Lab mix. She is a crazy girl and tries to herd everyone in the house, but she always makes me feel safe.
E. Essential start to your day: Coffee!!! I set up the coffee maker on a timer so that I can smell it freshly brewed when I go into the kitchen in the morning.
F. Favorite color: Brown. I know. I am weird.
G. Gold or silver: Mostly silver, but I’ve recently developed a thing for gold.
H. Height: 5 foot, 4 and 1/2 inches – which, is supposed to be the tall class in most bikini competitions, but somehow, I always end up with the shorties….
I. Instruments you play(ed): Viola in school and then I took some cello lessons as an adult. My teacher stopped teaching when she got pregnant and I just kinda stopped too…. 😦 I really want to take banjo lessons with my dad’s banjo!
J. Job title: I work in the pharma industry, but my most important job title is Mom, Mama, Mommy…
K. Kids: I have a 3 year old son and a 5 and 3/4 year old daughter. They are the frosting to my cupcake of a life.
L. Live: 30 miles outside of Philadelphia, PA
M. Mom’s name: Dona (Hi MOM!)
N. Nicknames: Pepper. My real name is Stephanie. When I was a kid, my parents called me Pepperoni because I was so “spicy” (what does that really MEAN, anyway? Must ask Mom…. 🙂 ). Anyway, it got shortened to Pepper… and well, here I am!
O. Overnight hospital stays: I have had 2! See letter K 🙂
P. Pet peeves: When my hubby takes out the garbage and doesn’t put a garbage bag back in the can (and of course, I always have something to throw away right at that moment!). Other than that, I am really easy going….
Q. Quote from a movie: “I tend to get a little bit poufy when I’m nervous!” Steel Magnolias
R. Righty or lefty: Righty!
S. Siblings: I have 2 sisters. I adore them and couldn’t have hand picked better sisters.
T. Time you wake up: 6:30 ish?
U. Underwear: I tend to like the nude ones… because I am lazy and you can wear them with anything.
V. Vegetables you dont’ like: I have never met a vegetable I didn’t like.
W. What makes you run late: No matter how proactive I am at night, I am always late to work. Not totally blaming my kids here, but they are usually the cause…. “I don’t wanna go to school”…etc. I figure, if the pharma gig doesn’t work out, I would make a terrific drill seargent!
X. X-rays you’ve had: Last year, 4 weeks before my bikinic ompetition, I fractured my ankle. I was sprinting on the treadmill every day, sometimes twice a day. I have also had a number of mouth x-rays done. Is my dentist the only one that does these constantly?
Y. Yummy food you make: I love to bake!!!! Have you tried my bodybuilding cupcakes? I am getting ready to share my vegan pumpkin cheesecake with you soon too! AND, I finally found a great vegan protein bar recipe!!! STAY TUNED!
Z. Zoo animal favorites: Ones that are happy. Since becoming vegan, I am not really sure about how I feel about zoos.
