To Love. To Grow. To Change. To Live.

A to Z of Me...

I love finding unique ways to share things about myself so that people can get to know me without having to tell my life story.  So I figured I'd do an A to Z of Me!!!  I got this idea from here.

So here goes...

A. Age: 27

B. Bed size: Queen but I'd love a King!

C. Chore that you hate: Laundry and Dishes

D. Dogs: None!  I love animals from a distance.  I hate when people hurt them and I hate those commercials that show them looking all makes me sad.  But I don't like animals, especially dogs, as pets.  It just seems like a lot of work.

E. Essential start to your day:  ***TMI Alert*** Breastfeeding!  Bonding and connection with the little aside, that release of pressure in the morning after filling up all night is a must to starting the day!

F. Favorite color:  Burgunday and Black

G. Gold or Silver: White gold, it's like the best of both worlds :)

H. Height: 5' 7".

I. Instruments you play: Flute / Piccolo, Mellophone / French Horn and I dabble with the Piano a bit (I can hear my husband laughing like "yeah right" when he reads).

J. Job title:  Full time mother / wife.  Yes, this is a job!  The work is hard and the hours are long but I get paid pretty darn well, thank you very much!

K. Kids:...well kids are young goats so I don't have any of those *snickering*.  But I do have a precious baby girl named Madison!

L. Live: North Carolina

M. Mother’s name: Mommy :)...Sharon.  You can read more about her here.

N. Nicknames: I don't really have any.  My best friend calls me Coli but other than that most people just call me Nicole :).

O. Overnight hospital stays: Just once, for Maddie's delivery!  I was induced, so I got there on Friday and she was born on Sunday.

P. Pet peeves:  I can't stand when clothes are turned inside out when I'm folding laundry (HUSBAND!), I also don't like backtracking (I got that from my mother :)) and I don't like being late (yet I seem to be late all the time now, I wonder if Mario and Madison have something to do with that...hummm)!

Q. Quote from a movie:  "Around here...we don't look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we're curious ... and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths. -Walt Disney, closing credits of Meet the Robinsons

R. Right or left handed: Right, but I LOVE lefties!  My hubby is a lefty, you know, and he swears Maddie is going to be one too, although I keep telling him it's too early to tell.

S. Siblings: Three brothers and Five Sisters...yes, that is correct!

U. Underwear:  Nothing but Victoria's Secret from top to bottom...their Body by Victoria bras are the only bras that I own.  So perfect and fits me like a glove.

V. Vegetable you hate: Beets...who eats those anyway?!?

W. What makes you run late: My husband.  Madison. Me....I hate that crap!

X. X-Rays you’ve had:  Dental

Y. Yummy food that you make: My desserts are pretty darn good if I may say so myself!!!

Z. Zoo animal: Elephants!!! I love this line about elephants from the main character in Political Animals..."Beautiful creatures, aren’t they? Majestic, fearsome, but still gentle. They move slower than most animals, but they travel just as far. But that isn’t what I love most about them. They’re a matriarchal society. And when the males reach their mating age, the females kick them the h*ll out of the herd." (source)

So enough about me, I'd love to hear something fun about you so share a thing, or two, in the comments :)!!!



  1. I can't stand clothes that are inside out when I do laundry either! Fun list, I might have to try this one :)

    1. Hey Krista! This list was fun to do! I'd love to read yours if you decide to do one!

  2. Great idea for a blog post!!

    I didn't know you had that many siblings!! Wow! Are they all still in NC?

    I hate being late too...ughh!!

    1. Hey Ashley! Most people don't know that about me. I am the oldest (yikes!). My two brothers from my mom still live in Kinston and my five sisters / one brother from my dad and his wife live in Georgia!


Thanks for taking the time to comment! I read and cherish each and every one and do my very best to respond to all in a timely manner.
