ABC's About Me!

I was tagged by the lovely Teresa at Fit in Woodbine and by the sweet Tyly at One Mile at a Time. I figured since I got tagged twice, I better do it. So, here goes!!

A. Attached or Single? 
 Attached for almost 7 years to this amazing man.
B. Best Friend
 No, but if I did it would be my girl Carie. Even though we've never met in person, we have a great connection. I love her to pieces and just know that we would have a blast together if we weren't hundreds of miles apart!

C. Cake or Pie
 If it's an ice cream pie, then pie please.

D. Day of the week?

E. Essential Item?
  Earrings! I feel naked without them!

F. Favorite Color?

G. Gummy Bears or Worms?

H. Hometown?
 Louisville, KY

I. Favorite Indulgence?
 You'll never guess...
J. January or July?
 July. I HATE cold weather!

K. Kids?
 My 2 precious stepsons.

L. Life isn't complete without?
  God. He is my reason for living!

M. Marriage Date
  September 6, 2006

N. Number of brothers/sisters
 2 brothers, 6 sisters (including my very own twinnie)
O. Oranges or Apples?
 Apples. Honeycrisp Apples.

P. Phobias?
 Bugs. Any bugs. All bugs. Flying, walking or crawling, I hate them all. Yes, I know I'm much bigger than them.

Q. Favorite Quote?
 I've had to say this a lot lately... I'll try again, and again, and again.
R. Reasons to smile?
 Many reasons, but one is because I'm able to run. Run marathons. Something I never thought I could do. 

S. Season of Choice?

T. Tag 3 people.
 Do I have to?? If you want to do this, do it and send me the link so I can get to know you better too!

U. Unknown Fact about me:
 I have had plastic surgery.

V. Favorite Vegetable?
 Edamame. I just recently discovered this amazing vegetable. I make it with sea salt and soy sauce. (I know, sodium overload!)
W. Worst habit? 
 Throwing things away! I hate clutter, so if something is laying around for too long, I throw it away. The fam knows that if anything is missing, I most likely threw it away!

X. X-Ray or Ultrasound?
 I guess X-Ray, I've never had an ultrasound.

Y. Your favorite Food?
 Since I've already used ice cream as an answer, I'll say my 2nd favorite food is General Tso's Chicken. I love spicy food, and this stuff is TDF! I need to find a healthy way to cook it...
Z.  Zodiac Sign?
 I don't believe in that stuff! 

 So there you have it! Tell me something about you!!

    I cringe when I hear people telling what their horoscope said.

  12. Ice cream is also my favorite indulgence...trying to not indulge as much though :) I also hope to one day run a full marathon, but am happy to be able to run a 5k...gotta start somewhere!!
