The ABCs of ME!

I've done an A to Z of me post before but figured I'd do a different spin on it so that any new faces around these parts can get to know me a little better.  Here goes...

A - Available or married? 
Married with joy :)!

B- Book?

C- Cake or Pie?
Pecan  Pie!

Simply Orange Juice.

My iPod 5, I'm obsessed!

Burgundy and Black.

G- Game to play or watch?

H- Hometown?
Kinston, NC.

I- Indulgence?
Sweets...lots and lots of sweets!  Especially chocolate and definitely homemade!

J- Job?
I'm currently a "domestic engineer" and I so love the discovery of this term...basically a stay at home mom / homemaker but I'm actually a mechanical engineer by degree so the term truly fits me perfectly :)!!!

L- Life is incomplete without?
Love! God is love!

M- Movie(s)?
I love movies!!! My favorite classic movies are Beauty and the Beast, The Sound of Music, The Five Heartbeats and Dirty Dancing.  I can recite nearly every line in all of them.  As of late I loved the Harry Potter and Twilight series and I'm definitely feeling the Iron Man series. A few scenes from the most recent one was filmed here in Cary, NC, so I can't wait to see it!

S- Season?
Early Spring and Early Fall, when it's not to hot or too cold!

T- Tattoos?
I have a "tramp stamp" (lower back tattoo) that I'd like to get rid of or change. 

U- Unknown fact about me?
If I'm going to cry about something I usually do it in the shower.

Broccoli, sweet peas, zucchini/squash.

W- Worst habit?
Worrying, since it serves no purpose...Matthew 6:27

X- X-Rays you've had?

Y- Your favorite food?
Pizza or anything Italian (yummy)!

I like to think that I'm interesting.  But that's just my opinion!  Tell me something about you ;)!



  1. A fun to read ;) Gosh , I am so after iPod 5 this summer . I can't wait to have my own . Which colour do you own?
    Noor @ Noor's Place

    1. Thanks, Noor! You will love the iPod 5, I'm telling you! I have it in yellow, it was actually gifted to me by my sister and I can't thank her enough for it!

  2. A fellow Gemini and Italian food lover! This was fun to get to know you. Might have to "borrow" this idea sometime. Have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks, Dawn! Borrow away, I borrowed it from somewhere as well! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  3. Great list of ABCs. I stopped over from Dara's blog (Not in Jersey). I have a college friend from nearby your hometown (she's from LaGrange, but worked in Kinston). Small world. :-)

    1. Thanks, Libby! Most people have never heard of Kinston or LaGrange unless they are from the area so definitely a small world. Ha, I bet I know your friend!!!

  4. This is so cute. I always say that I'm going to do something like this on my blog but I still haven't. Womp-womp! Glad to have connected with you!

    1. Same here dear, and you definitely should give it a go! I tend to get so caught up in sharing my thoughts and feelings that I forget to let my audience know who I am in a more direct way! Plus, it was fun to think through and complete!

  5. There are so many things I love about this post. Firstly, those photos are BEAUTIFUL. And the term domestic engineer? I'll be using that one!

    The quote you chose, I hadn't heard before but I'm always comparing myself to others, wishing I had more, when I know that I should be happy that I have been blessed with so much already.

    Thanks for giving us an insight into you!

    Operation: Be His Mother

    1. You're so kind, Serena!

      I just recently saw it on FB and it's been on my mind since then. I've spent a lot of time comparing myself and my life to others and it hasn't been fair to me! Like you said I've been so blessed and that should be my focus!

      Thanks so much for your comment, Serena!

  6. Wow, somehow I've missed that you have eight siblings!

    I love that picture of your hands.

    1. I don't mention them much! Two brothers (mom) and five sisters/one brother (dad/stepmom)!

  7. Fun read. I like your upbeat and positive nature.

    1. Aww thanks, Cortne! I can assure you that I haven't always been this way so I'm very thankful for the change!

  8. I love this!! I want to use this. I will reference you :-)

    1. No need my dear, this is freely floating around the web!


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.
