ABC's of Me

I am busy packing for our camping trip with friends this weekend (our first time tent camping!), so I figured that I would use this meme I did over on Facebook to tide you over until I got back.


A - Age: 41

B - Bed size: King

C - Chore you hate: Keeping the house picked up

D - Dog’s name: Current - Ellie and Jez, Childhood - Snoopy, Buffy, Bootz

E - Essential start your day item: Shower and time to fully wake up (hate to be rushed)

F - Favorite color: Not sure I have one…ilke strong colors, NOT pastels

G - Gold or Silver: Gold

H - Height: 5’2”

I - Instruments you play: Clarinet

J - Job title: Homeschool Mom; Board Member and Vice President of The Organization of Virginia Homeschoolers

K - Kid(s): Jason - 12 years old; Kyle 9 years old

L - Living arrangements: Most of the time in our house in Annandale, VA but spend summers in Ocean City, MD

M - Mom’s name: Pamela

N - Nicknames: Steph; Penny (my mom liked the name Penny but not Penelope, so she named me Stephanie and called me Penny. Kept Penny until we moved halfway through my 9th grade year and did not want to go through the long explanation when I was the new kid. Personally I like Stephanie better, so I have stuck with it).

O - Overnight hospital stay other than birth: Csection with my first and VBAC with my second. Both in the hospital.

P - Pet Peeve: Hypocrisy

Q - Quote from a movie: Can’t think of one

R - Right or left handed: Right

S - Siblings: 1 brother - RJ, a musician who lives in San Diego

T - Time you wake up: Around 8am

U- Underwear: Bikini

V - Vegetable you dislike: Would be quicker to list the veggies I like since I am not a big veggie fan. But if I had to pick just one that I really don’t like it would be mashed potatoes (it is a consistency thing…and I wonder where Jason gets his pickiness from!)

W - Ways you run late: Trying to time things so that I show up *exactly* on time which means that I am usually late because nothing ever goes according to plan. You would think that I would have that figured out by now, but I haven’t.

X - X-rays you’ve had: Teeth

Y - Yummy food you make: Deviled eggs

Z - Favorite zoo animal: Red Panda
