ABC, Easy as 1,2,3…

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.
