Old School Blogging

Because Everyone Else Is Doing It, I had to.

The ABCs of old school blogging- except that I did not even know what a blog was when this was all the rage.  For me, it’s more like old school AOL email forwards.

Now that everyone REALLY is doing it, go link up with Miss Elaine and Jennifer and join in. Don’t be That Girl.

A. Attached or Single? Married, which in my opinion is better than just attached.

B. Best Friend? I have a friend, Erika, who is really more like a sister than a friend in that nothing is scared or off limits when it comes to either of us giving the other “Life Assistance” (also known as freely offering one’s opinion, even if it wasn’t asked for).  Liz is my best friend in Atlanta. She quietly challenges me to be a better person… Oh and my husband.

D. Day of choice? Saturdays.

E. Essential Item? Tervis tumbler with a straw. A few years ago, I had a Come To Jesus meeting with myself after I realized I was going through 2L diet sodas at an alarming rate. I discovered the only way I will drink water is with a straw and ice, ergo the Tervis.

F. Favorite color? Pink. It is also Emma’s favorite.

G. Gummy bears or worms? Neither. Gross.

H. Home town? St. Louis

I. Favorite Indulgence? Getting a weekend away with my husband.

J. January or July? Too cold. Too hot. I want Southern California’s weather.

K. Kids? Emma.

L. Life isn’t complete without? My routine! I am not the most exciting person, but I am the most predictable and I find great comfort in knowing what to expect.

M. Marriage date? July 3, 2006

N. Number of brothers/sisters? 2 sisters

O. Oranges or Apples? Apples. Fuji and Jazz.

P. Phobias? I do not do roaches. I have my exterminator’s cell phone number and have texted him after 10PM to schedule a treatment after seeing one. I do not play around.

Q. Quotes? ”First there’s Kappa, then you get married, then there’s Junior League and then you die.” A Southern Belle Primer

R. Reasons to smile? Because you are responsible for your own fun. No one else cares if you are having any!

 S. Season of choice? Southern California. I used to love Spring, but in Georgia ‘Spring’ is actually ‘Pollen’ and it is impossible to do anything outside.

T. Tag 5 People. Nope.

U. Unknown fact about me? If I told, it wouldn’t be unknown!

V. Vegetable? Green beans.

W. Worst habit? I have been told sometimes I am a nag…

X. Xray or Ultrasound? Nothing good is going to come from either.

Y. Your favorite food? Chardonnay.

Z. Zodiac sign? Libra.

Okay, your turn!


  1. I’ve never heard of a Tevis Tumbler before. I googled it, and now I want one.

  2. A picture of a baby is a good thing that comes from an ultrasound! You are three fabulous sisters. And spring=pollen… Ha! I know it’s true, but it made me giggle. :)

  3. Ugh .. I hate gummy candy … yuck! Glad to see I’m not the only one!
    I love these series!

  5. I love fresh green beans cooked with onions and new potatoes. Really new ones from the garden, not the fakey red ones they sell in grocery stores now. So yum.

    • Have never grown my own. My husband keeps me in tomatoes, bless his heart. He claims I eat so many green beans he couldn’t keep up! I will have to convince him to plant a few so I can test your theory- and then save them for special occasions. (What a nerd. Special occasion green beans)

  6. Your answer to “Y” is a good reason for us to be friends! ;D

    Oh and i like you answer to “U” also.

    Thanks for linking up!

    • Anytime we find ourselves in the same place we can cement our friendship with lots of Y! You clearly have great taste.

  7. Never heard of Tevis Tumbler too, must look it up :D
