The ABCs of me

I've seen this now on several blogs, and since I haven't done a meme in a really long time I thought I'd go for it. If you decide to play too, post a comment and I'll come check out your personal alphabet!

A Aphrodisiac. What turns you on? Beautiful music (usually of the opera variety) and definitely a clean house.

B BFF. Who’s your best friend? My best friend is Joel. As far as best girlfriends go, I am at a time in my life where I don't really have any ONE best friend. I find myself saying "My best friend..." in reference to several different women, and they know who they are.

C Celeb. Favorite? Most annoying? I've never been one who really gets into the celebrity stuff...but I guess I'd say my favorite is currently Reese Witherspoon. I just like how down to earth she seems. As far as most annoying? I'd have to say most of them.

D Drink. What’s your poison? Right this moment it's hot chocolate. The Dulce la leche caramel flavor by Stephens. (And since I'm supposedly "off" sugar, this isn't good.)

E Everyday essentials. What do you use everyday? My computer.

F Fav. color. What’s your signature color? If you know me at all I don't have to answer this question. If you don't know me, I'll tell you: It's red, red and red (with pink coming in as a surprising second).

G Groove. What music are you enjoying today? Well, the girls were dancing to "The Nutcracker" earlier. Otherwise I haven't listened to anything today.

H Hot! Who’s hot? Who’s not? I'm gonna say Joel's hot, because he told me today that I don't think he's cute. Well he's wrong, I think he's cute AND hot. Not hot? No comment.

I Indulgence. Dish about your guilty pleasure. Scrapbook mags we don't really have the money for. It used to be scrapbook supplies, but sinceI haven't scrapbooked since November I just read the magazines.

J {dream} Job. What would you do? When I was little I wrote in a journal that I would like to be a singer, actor, entertainer, dancer, musician, mother when I grew up. That still holds true for the most part. And, teaching voice lessons is something I really enjoy, so my actual job is kind of dream status.

K Kitchen Companion. Most used item in your kitchen? computer? But if that doesn't really count, I'll say the microwave.

L Life is incomplete without. . . ? My husband, kids, and the Gospel.

M Mc. . . What would you “Mc”? I have to say I don't really understand this question. But I'll say McMusic just for the heck of it.

N Natural or dyed? I dyed my hair darker (believe it or not) once in high school. Now it's darker even than that thanks to pregnancy and childbirth. I keep it totally natural. So far, even at age 32, I only have found one gray hair. We'll see how long that lasts!

O Outrageous Outfit. What’s hiding your closet that you’re dying to wear? It would only be outrageous if I wore it (them?) now. All of my clothes from before I was pregnant...stuff I can't even squeeze myself into at this moment in time.

P Pet Peeve. What makes you absolutely crazy? Whiners...mainly of the "my own children" variety. Things not being put back where they go. Spelling errors where they shouldn't be, like a national magazine.

Q Quote. Share some inspiration. "Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone." ~Pablo Picasso. I like it because I need to stop procrastinating the important stuff.

R Restaurant you give rave reviews. Just to bug Joel I'll say Chili's...especially since we just got one in town. Also the Garden House. A local restaurant that is just amazing.

S Starbucks order. Well, since I don't drink coffee, I don't exactly frequent Starbucks. I have, on occasion, grabbed one of their pumpkin scones. Yummiola.

T Television. What keeps you glued to the couch? Not much. I recently watched all 4 seasons of 24 and am going to start on Season 5 tonight. I'll be watching it this season, just as soon as I get caught up. Of course, we can't forget American Idol, either! Otherwise, I won't be watching TV.

U Ultimate Vacation Destination. In the US: New York City. Outside of the US: Probably Italy, if I have to only choose one country. But a whole trek through Western Europe with one stop off in Romania would be the ultimate.

V Virtual Babe Name. What’s your online ID? lalakme

W Wonder Woman. What woman leaves you in awe? My mom is pretty darn amazing. Her, and Jaroldeen Edwards.

X eX - _______________ Ex-College Student? I can't think of very many things I've been that I am not anymore.

Y Youth in a bottle. What keeps you feeling young at heart? Playing with my girls.

Z Zodiac sign. Leo

    Whining also drives me crazy. And why do my girls all decide to do it on the same day?
