What's The Alphabet Got To Do With It?

A couple of weeks back people were posting this little "get to know me better" post.  I thought it was clever and decided to try it myself.  Here are 26 questions based on the alphabet so you can know me better.

Age: 48 (in cool years, so I am really only 24)
Bed size: King
Chore you hate: cleaning bathrooms, seriously does anyone like that chore?
Dog: Chester, 11 yr. old Boston Terrier (she is technically son2's dog, notice I said technically)
Essential start of your day: Cup of Ginger Tea and my quiet time
Favorite color: Pink of course, but you already knew that one
Gold or silver: silver
Height: 5'4" (dream height would be 5'6")
Instruments I play (or have played): I took violin lessons waay back in the day.  I am sad to say that I did not get the music gene in any form or fashion.
Job title: The Boss and don't you forget it!
Kids: son1 and son2
Live: Charlotte, NC
Mom’s name: Kay

Nickname: Brettie (but you need to be married to me to call me that!)  sidenote: when son1 was around 2 he thought my name was "Hey Brettie" because that is what husband always said.
Overnight hospital stays: about 5 (two were for birthing my babies)
Pet peeve: not cleaning up after yourself in MY kitchen, is it really that hard people???
Quote from a movie: "Damn, I hate being a foregone conclusion." Catherine Banning, Thomas Crown Affair with Pierce Brosnan and Rene Russo
Right or left handed: Right
Siblings: Jay and Robin (both younger than me)
Time you wake up: 6:30 am, but not on the weekend!  I go by the time honored tradition of waking up when my body wants to wake up.
Underwear: GAP, hipster (yea, cuz, I'm hip)
Vegetables you dislike: I cannot stand those round green peas.  Will not eat them in a car will not eat them after a night in a bar!
What makes you run late: son1
X-rays you’ve had done: hand, leg, hip, elbow
Yummy food you make: I am always asked to make my grilled salmon with mustard caper sauce and my homemade salsa
Zoo animal: Tiger, just because they are bad a$$ and beautiful!

Please feel free to use these questions on your website.  Would love to get to know you better too.

I hate cleaning the bathroom too! But I don't trust the hubs to do it! Haha!

Very clever...loved this way to know you better!!  Also, like this blouse a lot!!  The 'your body will wake you up thing" is true...unfortuantely, my body awakes at 4:30 AM  whether there is an alarm or not...on weekends, that is a real bummer!!

So we are the same age, almost the same height...  you've got a half inch on me! ;) hate cleaning bathrooms, two boys, also took violin lessons and have no musical talent whatsoever, and must have my coffee and am so much more peace-filled  when I am faithful about my quiet time :)   No wonder I like you so well Brett! ;)

Tracy said...

I know so much now. It's like we've always known you. Thanks honey!

Fun and interesting answers.  Thanks for sharing.

I also love "The Thomas Crowne Affair," both the re-make you mention and the original with Steve McQueen.

I never would have guessed your age ...... You look fab darlin!

Those questions are great , i may need to do that on my blog. Have i mentioned yet that I'm your newest big fan!

Rebecca said...

I like the top.  I don''t mind cleaning the bathroom, but that is because the bathroom is small so it goes quickly.

WendyBrandes said...

I like the idea of "cool years."

Tinfoils Tiaras said...

Really- we're the same height?! I always thought from your photos that you were at least 5'8"- I guess you just have a confident stance! :) Cute nickname and I love your top!

hasn't happened so far and i hope it never will!

we need to do lunch asap, or after your son1 has officially graduated.
