Who are you? From A to Z

I saw this around at Katie's Pencil Box last week, and then again at Sometimes Sweet and Crowley Party this week, and I thought it was the perfect continuation of last Thursday's Who are you? post. It's another little get to know you game.... from A to Z!!

Here's the A-Z's of me ♥

A. Age: 23
B. Bed size: King. We had a full for the first 6 months of marriage & it was awful. Way too small! Especially since I can't sleep still and I always sleep in the middle of the bed.
C. Chore that you hate: Cleaning the bathroom and vacuuming. Luckily, C doesn't hate doing that!
D. Dogs: Nope. And we're not getting any anytime soon.
E. Essential start to your day: A good breakfast & a shower.
F. Favorite color: Purple, pink & gray in various shades.
G. Gold or Silver: Gold accessories. Silver wedding band. (Mine's white gold, ha!)
H. Height: 5' 6" - just tall enough to be "tall" but short enough to wear heels when I want
I. Instruments you play: I used to play the piano really well.
J. Job title: Business Assistant III. Riveting, I know.
K. Kids: None. And none coming soon.
L. Live: Bryan, TX
M. Mother’s name: Sharon. (Who's twin's name is Karon)
N. Nicknames: Ams - but only by 1 person. Rosehose - from middle school. And "Director of the Universe" - from my dad who liked to embarrass me in middle school.
O. Overnight hospital stays: None for me since I was a baby!
P. Pet peeves: Being a fan of everything. You can't like everything... especially music. That's probably my biggest pet peeve!
Q. Quote from a movie: "Empire Records, open 'til midnight..... [pause to listen to person on phone].... MIDNIGHT!!"
R. Right or left handed: Right
S. Siblings: 3. Jess is 14 months younger than me, then Dana & Clark. My mom had 4 kids in 5 years so we're all pretty close.
T. Time you wake up: {Added in later! Wasn't on my first list. Thanks, Krystle!} Around 6:30 every day. And 8 on weekends.
U. Underwear: Private!! Actually, depends on the day. I hate panty lines, though. And that's all I'll say there.
V. Vegetable you hate: Okra & mushrooms. I hate mushrooms!!
W. What makes you run late: Everything. I'm never on time. I just dawdle. My dad used to call me & my sister "dilly" and "dally"... and it still applies to both of us!
X. X-Rays you’ve had: my wrist & dental
Y. Yummy food that you make: everything. you can see my recipes here.
Z. Zoo animal: Okapi! They're the cutest!! See...

  1. A. Age: 29 - for a few more weeks
    B. Bed size: California king. Buster takes up at least half of the bed!
    C. Chore that you hate: Dishes. I love to cook but absolutely despise doing the dishes. I think we'll be getting a dishwasher soon. Fingers crossed.

Nicknames: I don't have any current nicknames but I had 3 when I was little: Kelly Mouser (by my grandpa because I always wanted to check his mouse traps at his fishing shack), Beaner (thankfully that nickname didn't stick!), and Wendy Whiner (what my mom called me when I was crabby.

    O. Overnight hospital stays: Surprisingly, none!
