Okay so I am a delinquent blogger. I’ve had this thing for a month & have only posted 1 thing. Part of it is lack of time, part of it is lack of interesting things to talk about. But my sweet friend who also happens to blog posted this yesterday & she saw it on another blog & I believe that blog “borrowed” it from another one as well… anyways, I’ve decided to use it too. It’s a great way to get to know me as a blogger.
A. Age: at my last birthday I celebrated the 12th anniversary of my 21st Birthday.
B. Bed size: Queen. When we go to a hotel & sleep in a King I feel like we’re on different coasts!!
C. Chore that you hate: Ugh… all of them! I would have to say the #1 thing I HATE to do is dusting. I can manage to do everything else but I can make things look nice even when they’re dusty 🙂
D. Dogs: Currently no dogs – 2 cats & a lizard & I own a tortoise that is still residing at a friends house because we haven’t gotten around to getting him back yet after moving!! We would like a SMALL dog someday, perhaps.
E. Essential start to your day: Coffee, Coffee, Coffee & snuggle time with Levi.
F. Favorite color: Greens & Blues
G. Gold or Silver: I’m a gold girl mainly because it looks better with my skin tone. I do like silver but it makes me look even paler than normal!!
H. Height: 5′ 4″ish
I. Instruments you play: I can play piano (had 7 years but don’t really play for others), I played Clarinet in school (band geek to the core!) but haven’t really touched it since, and I’ve dabbled with Guitar but can only play 3 songs. I need lessons for that one…
J. Job title: Youth Director
K. Kids: One amazing Son, Levi, who is the light of my life. I’m sure you’ll read lots more about him in the upcoming blogs!
L. Live: South Central PA. Like my good friend over at SHINE, I say “ya’ll” a lot too!
M. Mother’s name: Glenda
N. Nicknames: Heiders, PH (for Pastor Heidi), and the occasional “Heidi G.” (which is an update from “Heidi B.” since I got married).
O. Overnight hospital stays: My birth, and C-section for little man
P. Pet peeves: other drivers… I have been blessed with my father’s gift of “road rage,” people who always have to be in the middle of other people’s business (or “potstirrers” as I like to refer to them), and people who have to share their opinion about EVERYTHING. Sometimes it’s okay to keep things to yourself!!
Q. Quote from a movie: “With great power comes great responsibility” Spiderman. I’m not up to date on current movies…
R. Right or left handed: Righty but always secretly wanted to be a lefty like my cousin!! It’s fun to watch them write!!
S. Siblings: A “big” little brother who has gone from an annoyance to a good friend.
T. Time it takes you to get ready: Usually 30 minutes or so, depending on how motivated I am & well rested…
U. Ultimate Vacation: Too many places on my bucket list but at the top are Hawaii, Venice Italy, & I too would really like to go to Australia to meet Ezra and hang out with Karen & Joel 😀
V. Vegetable you hate: Asparagus & Brussel Sprouts. ICK!
W. What makes you run late: My son now. Although I would still sometimes blame myself & the need to get just “one more minute” of sleep. I have never ever claimed to be a morning person. Now it’s even harder getting out of the house in the am’s with a little one!!
X. X-Rays you’ve had: Teeth, fractured ribs, sprained ankle, I think that’s it!
Y. Yummy food that you make: Ugh, I really hate cooking but it’s a must around here or we wouldn’t eat (especially since we can’t afford to eat out all of the time!). I don’t know what I would say is super yummy or “Heidi’s famous” anything. As long as I have a recipe I can make just about anything.
Z. Zoo animal: Monkeys! I love watching them play and react to one another. They’re just fun animals. I’ve also been to the Six Flags Safari in New Jersey & my favorite part was always the monkeys as they would crawl all over your car!!!
Okay, that’s me in a nutshell! What are some of your favorite or not so favorite things?
