My A to Z

I first saw this Old School Blogging meme over at Alison’s place. Really reminds me of way back when on Facebook when people would tag you on their notes. Then I found Elaine from The Miss Elaine-ous Life & Jennifer who hosts these fun linky.

Saw these on lots of the blogs I adore and I said to myself “Hmm…this sounds like fun. I could really use some fun distractions right now.

So here goes my Alphabet Meme

A. Attached or Single? Uhm, technically still single but I am attached to someone with the initial D who is inside a plane jetting off to a far away land right now. See, why I need this distractions too? Might as well do this than staring on that live flight radar thingy.

B. Best Friend? My D of course but there’s also Emmy who has been my friend since 2005 (correct me if I’m wrong, Em?).

C. Cake or pie? Pie but I’ll have some really good cheese cake too.

D. Day of choice? Any day where I could relax with my boy, do whatever I want and writes.

E. Essential Item? Duh, of course my iPhone oh, and my flat iron!

F. Favorite color? Red but lately, coral.

G. Gummy bears or worms? How bout some Green Tea Frappuccino? Yum!

H. Hometown? Growing up in different places, this one is always hard to answer but I did wrote about some of my hometowns and where I’m from.

I. Favorite Indulgence? Massage, hair spa, and chocolate.

J. January or July? January.

K. Kids? 1 boy who will start elementary school next month.

L. Life isn’t complete without? My boy, my family, my friends, my D and oh yeah, iPhone also my writing.

M. Marriage date? Hah! Please refer to the first question.

N. Number of brothers/sisters? Two younger brothers.

O. Oranges or Apples. Avocados?

P. Phobias? Uhm, fleas! Our dog had fleas before and it was so bad!

Q. Quotes? Oh I love quotes but the one I’ve been reading daily is this one.

R. Reasons to smile? Coffee, surprise hugs from my son, love from my family and from My D & the words he use to express himself.

S. Season of choice? Uhm, we only have two seasons here so I really love autumn. Still miss Upstate NY around that time of the year.

T. Tag 5 People. Meh, I’m too lazy to tag people.

U. Unknown fact about me? I was a hardcore tomboy growing up. Hated skirts too.

V. Vegetable? Love my veggies, roasted ones too. Nom nom nom.

W. Worst habit? Picking on my lips especially when they’re dry and rubbing my eyes.

X. Xray or Ultrasound? Ultrasound, I got so many of them when I was pregnant because of my severe preeclampsia.

Y. Your favorite food? Oh I love food! Now what I love is finding healthier versions of what usually not very healthy food. Who says eating healthy have to be boring! Like this easy chocolate mug cake. Mug Cake

  2. I love this post and idea and getting to know you more through you sharing these little tidbits! That chocolate mug cake looks delish! Too bad I told myself no more sweets for the duration of this pregnancy. We’ll see how I survive!

      Thank you Jessica, the chocolate mug cake is very easy and not that sweet. I used liquid stevia instead of real sugar and carob powder instead of cocoa powder. If you want I can email you the recipe :)

  3. I was a total tomboy when I was a kid too. I used to hide my hair in a cap :)

  14. Mmm…. cheesecake!
    You know I saw a recipe somewhere on the internets for chocolate mousse that is made with avocados. You can’t even tell that it’s made with them either.

  15. Hey, I put coral as my color, too! And you are so right about fleas – I’ve had two attacks in my lifetime and it was the worst. The itching never stops!
    So very nice to meet you and your blog!
