ABCs of Me

I saw this on a few of my favorite blogs in the past week and thought what a neat way for newer followers to get to know me.  So, without further adue...

ABCs of Kristen

A. Attached or Single?
 Attached!  We are celebrating our 9th anniversary this month but we have actually been together for 14 years.  Wow.
B. Best Friend?
  Aside from Owen you mean??  My bestie, Lori, of course!

C. Cake or pie? Uhm, how about cupcake??

D. Day of choice? I don't know that I have a favorite, so I'll go with Saturday - unless, of course, I have to work, then make it Sunday.  Or, better yet, any day that I don't have to work is my favorite.  How is that?
E. Essential Item?
 My contacts
F. Favorite color? Yellow!!!
G. Gummy bears or worms? Gummy bears.  And not just any gummy bears, the Haribo ones.


H. Home town?
 Memphis, TN
I. Favorite Indulgence? See C above
J. January or July? This is a tough one.  I like the January weather better, but July means it's almost my birthday.  Can I go with August??
K. Kids? The 2 beautiful girls you see to the right plus our 2 angel babies in heaven

L. Life isn’t complete without?
 Family!  O'Hana, y'all (I copied this from Patty - #truth)
M. Marriage date? July 17, 2004
N. Number of brothers/sisters?
 I am the oldest of 3 -  one sister, one brother
O. Oranges or Apples? Apples.  With peanut butter.
P. Phobias?
 Spiders.  OMG, even the little ones.  I try to put on my big girl panties around the girls and step on the small ones when they are around but when they aren't around I run and hide and make Owen do the dirty work.  UGH.
Q. Quotes? "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" - Philippians 4:13

R. Reasons to smile?
 I have a wonderful family that loves me, a house over our heads and food on the table, and a good job that pays for those things.  Why wouldn't you smile for all of that?
S. Season of choice? Fall.  I love watching the leaves change color, especially in Tennessee!

T. Tag 5 People.  If you want to do this, go for it - just make sure I get to read it!
U. Unknown fact about me? I was just recently diagnosed with hypertension and have been on medication for a few weeks.  I didn't really mention it on social media but heart disease runs in my family so I am taking it very seriously.  Hard to believe but yup, it's true.


V. Vegetable? If I had to pick one - probably green beans.
W. Worst habit? My husband will attest to this - I pick at the skin around my finger nails, especially when I am nervous.  AND, best yet, Samantha does it too.  Must be hereditary.
X. Xray or Ultrasound? This is a tough one because Xrays usually mean something is hurt or broken, and while ultrasounds are great, two of the worst days of my life happened because of an ultrasound so I'm really not a fan of either.
Y. Your favorite food? Ice cream 

Z. Zodiac sign? Virgo
