ABCs of Me

It seems like everyone is doing their ABCs. I first saw it at Just Trying is for Little Girls, but other blogger friends, Meredith, Colleen, and Leah have done it as well. Here are mine:

(A) Age: 33 for running, but I am already considered 34 for tris. Had to think really hard when I filled out my most recent race application, as it is just a few weeks before my birthday.
(B) Bed Size: Queen.
(C) Chore You Hate: Cleaning the bathrooms, but if you saw my house, you could assume all of them!
(D) Dogs? None, Ryan is allergic.
(E) Essential Start Your Day Item: Breakfast, I am pretty grumpy before I eat. Last year I drank a glass of chocolate milk, but since I have started avoiding dairy, it is now oatmeal.
(F) Favorite Color: Purple
(G) Gold or Silver? White Gold.
(H) Height: 5 ft 2 in,
(I) Instruments You Play: I used to play the piano and violin, but can’t do either anymore
(J) Job Title: Currently a Stay at Home Mom, but formerly a Product Design Engineer for Ford Motor Co
(K) Kids: Keira is 4, Soren is 2
(L) Live: Michigan, Detroit Suburbs
(M) Mom's Name: Miriam.
(N) Nicknames: Mel, Bones, M1
(O) Overnight Hospital Stays? One for each child, plus one when I was a child having a cyst removed
(P) Pet Peeve: Using the word "orientated" instead of "oriented"
(Q) Quote from a Movie: "Whoever said that orange is the new pink must have been seriously disturbed" Legally Blonde
(R) Right or Left Handed? Right, but left handed in gymnastics and my left arm seems to have gotten stronger lately because I always carry children on that side to be able to use my right hand to multi-task.
(S) Siblings: 1 Sister and 1 Brother
(T) Time You Wake Up? Until Keira and Soren wake me up, usually a bit after 7am
(U) Underwear: For running, Body by Victoria, for tris, commando (or bathing suit) I am an endowed member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
(V) Vegetable You Dislike: Zucchini, unless it in baked in a bread
(W) What Makes You Run Late: trying to do too much before leaving or expecting my children to do more for themselves to get out the door than they are capable. Changing a poopy diaper also makes me late from time to time.
(X) X-Rays You've Had Done: Lots, both ankles many times, elbow, hip, back
(Y) Yummy Food You Make: I love to bake, and love the Levain Bakery copycat recipe for their chocolate peanut butter chip cookies.

(Z) Zoo, Favorite Animal: Ginormous bats at the Columbus Zoo.

Those cookies look amazing. And those bats freak me out every time we go to the zoo. They are amazingly huge, but I get the willies around them! :)

Colleen- have you ever seen the bats at night? They are even freakier b/c they are awake, but none of my nighttime pics are very clear. Thos cookies are to DIE for. Every time we go to NYC, I HAVE to get one, and I can eat an entire 700+ calorie cookie, no problem. When I make them, I have to give a substantial amount away, too dangerous to have around! The ladies that own the bakery are triathletes, which makes them extra cool to me!

If you're 5'2" I'm 6 feet tall. :)

Melissa C said...
