Getting to know me from A to Z!

Last Friday two of my bloggy friends Carolyn and Melissa shared a blogging meme called "The Alphabet Meme {A to Z}" created by Miss Elaine-ous Life. What I liked most about this meme was that you get to know the person writing it more personally. My friend Carolyn tagged me and here I am responding to the Alphabet Meme {A to Z}.

A. Attached or Single? Attached, 12 years last Saturday :D

B. Best Friend? My husband. A high school friend who I am still very close to.

C. Cake or Pie? Pie!!! Cherry is my favorite pie, I also love blackberry pie.

D. Day of choice? Saturday, I love that my family gets to spend the whole day together doing fun stuff or having an adventure.

E. Essential item? iPhone! Always with me, even when I sleep.

F. Favorite Color? It's a tie between purple and blue.

G. Gummy bears or worms? Bears.

H. Hometown? Ensenada, Baja Mexico. We moved there when I was 6 and to this day it is my hometown...

I. Favorite Indulgence? Going to a Spa and just relaxing.

J. January or July? January! I love cold winter days.

K. Kids? 2! One of each.

N. Number of brothers/sisters? 1 sister.

O. Oranges or Apples? Gala apples!

P. Phobias? Snakes!!!! The skin, the movement... the thought of them just grosses me out. But I have touched one!

Q. Quotes? "It's not the place, it's the person!" -- Said by my mom.  "If it isn't broken, don't fix it" and last but not least "Life is an adventure, everyday is different".

R. Reasons to smile? My husband, my kids, our life, making new friends, blogging! Making new memories.

S. Season of choice? Fall! I love watching the leaves turn and wearing sweaters :D

T. Tag 5 people.  Only 5? I am going to do 6 is that  ok? Jamie Erin Melissa April  Xenia Christina

U. Unknown fact about me? While growing up I dreamed about working in the United Nations, I even wrote them a letter when I was 10 years old asking what I had to do to work there. Which is why I took German and French so I could speak other languages.

V. Vegetable? Like my favorite? Broccoli! raw, cooked, boiled, steamed... I also have a thing for beets!

W. Worst habit? Chewing gum! It's not the gum, it's chewing it loudly and making bubbles. I can't help it. I've given up a couple of times and gone back to chewing.

X. Xray or Ultrasound? hmm I've had both. I think xray was easier, I didn't have to drink a ton of water and hold it so they could get a better image of the baby ;)

Y. Your favorite food? Burgers, Pizza, Cuban and Mexican. Wait, you said food not foods? Sorry. ;)

Z. Zodiac sign? Gemini


  1. Yay! Do you still know German and French?

    1. I thought I'd forgotten the French, but over the weekend I had a small conversation with some new neighbors who spoke French! That was amazing {realizing I can still do it} I did take a couple of seconds and "ah, um, uhs" to remember what word... As for German I have been talking to myself in it little sentences of what I remember and maybe I am a bit less fluent than I would expect haha...

  2. Okay.. Just saw this.. I'm going to do this, but won't get to it until next week.. Promise =)

    1. No problem, no rush... It was just tagging for fun blogging friends ;)

  3. what a great idea for a meme. I did mock UN in high school and think we got Albania. My high school French didnt help me there. Great getting to know you better!

    1. Thank you Tanya! we should practice our French together :)

  4. what a great idea for a meme. I did mock UN in high school and think we got Albania. My high school French didnt help me there. Great getting to know you better!

  5. I love this! Happy belated anniversary!
    E - really? Even when you sleep? When do you take a break from it? :)

    1. Yup! even when I sleep it's next to me. I'm a light sleeper so if I wake up in the middle of the night {not always} I will play on it or check instagram... bad habit I know.
