me. from a to z.

the lovely liz, from explore, dream, discover did this fun a-z game and i thought i'd join in on the fun.

A. Age - 26

B. Bed size – queen. but we need a king like yesterday.

C. Chore that you hate – folding the laundry. this is why we always have a pile of clothes in our bedroom. can't they just fold themselves? ugh. 

D. Dogs – molly, our family dog who's turning 16 next week!

E. Essential start to your day – breakfast. i can't function without some rice krispies or a nature valley granola bar.

F. Favorite color – red. love me some red.

G. Gold or silver – silver

H. Height – 5’ 8 1/2"

I. Instruments you play – i played the clarinet in 5th grade. but i don't think that counts. boyfriend also tried to teach me how to play the guitar last year, but i gave up after 1 week after my fingers started to blister. so i don't think that counts either. maybe instruments just aren't in the cards for me...

J. Job title – Federal Marketing Associate. but as of Nov 14 it will be National Marketing Associate :) i got a new position within my company and cannot wait for the experience.

K. Kids – nope. and i'm okay with that. but maybe someday in the very far future.

L. Live – Arlington, VA (aka NOVA). specifically the courthouse area of arlington. just a hop-skip-and a jump from georgetown.

M. Mother’s name – susan

N. Nicknames – er, dannica (inside college joke), or chuckles (from boyfriend!)

O. Overnight hospital stays – too many times to count. in high school i had an abscess behind my throat and had trouble swallowing. i also had mono during all of this and they had trouble finding the abscess so i was in and out of the hospital. in the end i had surgery to remove it - all is good! most recently i had neck surgery to remove a herniated disc and was in the hospital for a few days. the hospital is no fun!

P. Pet peeves – when people misspell my last name, Coletta. it's 1 'L' and 2 "T's", people!

Q. Quote from a movie – dumb and dumber is my favorite movie. yup. favorite.
Lloyd: "Hey guys. Whoa big gulps, huh? Alright. Welp, see ya later!"
R. Right or left handed – Right.

S. Siblings – older brother

T. Time it takes you to get ready – if i thoroughly blow dry my hair it can take up to 1 hour (i have thick hair!). but if i just dry my banks and the top layer, i can be ready in 35 minutes.

U. Underwear – yes, i wear them.

V. Vegetable you hate – brussel sprouts

W. What makes you run late – not knowing what to wear! oh, and my procrastination. and if the two are happening together, boyfriend is NOT happy. i like having the tv on while i'm getting ready (even though i don't usually pay attention), but sometimes i get sidetracked and end up laying on the bed watching reruns of RHOBH, when i should be picking out my outfit.

X. X-rays you’ve had – again, too many to count. between my scoliosis, dentist visits, and herniated disc surgery, i've worn those lead aprons way too many times.

Y. Yummy food you make – homemade gravy aka tomato sauce for all you non-italians.

Z. Zoo animal – elephant!!!! i love elephants and collect little elephant figurines.

feel free to play along and leave your link in the comments so i can follow!

I have the best recipe for brussels sprouts - they taste like candy! I'll make them sometime and you have to try them!

My getting ready time doubles when I have to blow dry all of my hair, too!
