The ABC's of me

i was tagged by my sister in law Lindsey & my sisters Heather & Shannon to do the abc's of me. I don't normally do these things on my business blog, but I thought it might be fun to give all of my readers a little more insight into my life.

A. Attached or single? happily attached

B. Best friend? my hubby, my sisters, my mom & Jules, Erica & Cait

C. Cake or pie? cake, hands down. I eat far too much during wedding season. Red velvet is my favorite, which is a good thing because it has been at 5 of my weddings in the past couple of months!

D. Day of Choice? That's tough... sundays probably. Church, chipotle, down time at home (unless I have a sunday wedding)

E. Essential Item? Music. Rainbow sandals. Diet coke. My laptop. Trish McEvoy eye curling mascara. 

F. Favorite color? Black & white, & again- I agree with lindsey, kind of a turquoise-y tealy color

G. Gummy bears or worms? worms- only the sour ones. I very much dislike gummy bears.

H. Hometown? Mission Viejo, CA. My parents still live in the same house from when I was born.

I. Favorite indulgence? Ice Cream. Mint Chip or Peppermint at Christmastime. Buying myself a bunch of peonies at the store when they are in season. Or a trip to the spa for a massage :)

J. January or July? July- I love summer. Life is slower in January though.

K. Kids? Mr. Isaiah John Toney (9 1/2 months)

L. Life isn't complete without? Dessert, family & enjoying God's beautiful creation.

M. Marriage Date? September 9th, 2005

N. Number of brothers and sisters? 3 sisters, 2 brothers (3 of those biological). I'm the baby.

O. Oranges or apples? apples. Fuji.

P. Phobias? Being alone in the dark. spiders.

Q. Quotes? Many of my favorite quotes come from songs. Here are a few:
"Your Grace has found me just as I am: empty handed but alive in your hand" -"Majesty" by Hillsong United
"Bring it on, you moonlit blond, we'll frolic for a lifetime long" - I don't remember the name of it, but one of the first songs my hubby wrote about me back in high school.

R. Reasons to smile? Two weekends off in a row! Last saturday, I got to enjoy a real hang out at home saturday. I went to the pool with a friend & her baby, then hung out at home with David and worked on a bunch of projects, followed by BBQing and a movie. It was amazing! And this next weekend, we are heading up to SLO for my nephew's 1st birthday party!

S. Season of choice? the beginning of each season. I love the newness, freshness and excitement.

T. Tag 5 people: Nikki, Cristina, Amanda with In the Now weddings, Kristin with The Treasured Petal (welcome to blogging! You'll get tagged for junk like this!) & Megan with Classic. I'll tag my hubby too, just for fun, to see if he'll do it :)

U. Unknown fact about me? I clean my ears obsessively and I cannot stand it when Isaiah has boogers in his nose.

V. There was no V. My cousin Kristin added Vacation of Choice- I like it!: Anywhere with ocean, good fun and family. Favorites have been St. Lucia & Hawaii.

W. Worst habit? I am not the world's best driver... I am a good driver, but I do my makeup, eat and even check my email (thanks iPhone!) while driving. I know- it's terrible. I try not to do it when Isaiah is in the car especially. I've never been in an accident though!

X. X-ray or ultrasound? it depends: ultrasound to see a baby- wins hands down. ultrasound for any other reason when I've had to drink a gallon of water and hold my pee in, X-ray wins.

Y. Your favorite food? Anything with cheese: pizza, cheese & crackers, quesedillas, etc. Also, ice cream, risotto & good pasta. I have to say Chipotle too (and that's not just for my hubby!).

Z. Zodiac sign? Sagittarius, but I'm not into signs at all

phew... and I'm done. Another great wedding coming your way this week :)
