Alphabetizing My Life

I wanna be cool, too! Everyone seems to be doing this ABC thing in my corner of blog-world, and I LOVE this kind of stuff. Anyone remember Myspace surveys? Oh yeah. I was that girl. Haha. So anyways, I figured I'd give it a go!

A - Age: 24. I hit the big quarter-century mark this year in September. 
B - Bed Size: Here in Africa, a twin. At home Shane and I have a queen, though I want an upgrade to a King. I love having space!!
C - Chore You Dislike: Cleaning the bathroom. Ugh.
D - Dogs: I used to not be a fan so much, but now I really want one! Shane and I are looking into getting a Norwegian Elkhound. They are so pretty!
E - Essential Start to Your Day: Pressing snooze a whole bunch. I have to wake up gradually.
F - Favorite Color: Purple. For as long as I can remember. I love it. 
G - Gold or Silver: Hmmm. Both. But white gold is probably my favorite. 
H - Height: 5'6 Baby! 
I - Instruments You Play: None. At all. I'm completely tone deaf and have absolutely no rythem. 
J - Job Title: I'm currently a Petty Officer 2nd Class in the United States Navy. But as of May 2011 that will be unemployed. :) 

K - Kids: Not for a while. We were going to try right after the wedding, but with Shane's deployment schedule, it looks likes it's going to be a few years. More time to travel, I guess!
L - Live: Right now, Djibouti Africa. 

M - Mom's Name: Jeanie (but it's pronounced Janie)
N - Nickname: Katy-did, Kate, Katy-poo, Pro
O - Overnight Hospital Stays: Ummm. I've hung out at the hospital with my friends overnight a couple of times.
P - Pet Peeve: People who don't use a turn signal. Drives me mad!
Q - Quote from a Movie: I love way too many movies for just one! I'll go with: "As far back as I can remember, I have always wanted to be a gangster." Goodfellas
R - Righty or Lefty: Righty!
S -Siblings: My baby bro. Here he is dressed as a lion.

T - Time You Wake Up: Psssh. Not early, I'll tell you that!
U - Underwear: Yeah, I wear 'em.
V - Vegetables You Don't Like: Cooked carrots. Gross. I'll eat raw ones all day long, though.
W - What Makes You Run Late: Hopefully nothing, I hate being late! But if it's something...Facebook probably.
X - X-Rays You've Had: I've had the teeth ones at the dentist, and a few chest ones.
Y - Yummy Food You Make: Pineapple Ginger Chicken. Shane loves this, and it's super easy to make!
Z - Zoo Animal Favorite: The tigers, but baby bro likes the gorillas. He also like hats with ears. Or maybe I just like hats with ears....


  1. I love how many people put things relating to driving in the pet peeve section haha!! I love the pic with you in your uniform! You look so tough!

  2. awesome blog post! I shall be stealing the idea! Great pics!

  3. Hey, I just found your blog, and I am so excited! That's awesome that you're in the Navy and in Africa, I would love to hear more about it. I was living in Mozambique for two years with the Peace Corps and just got back two months ago, and have been thinking about joining the Navy in a couple of years. I love being abroad and feeling like my work is meaningful. Would love to hear more!

  4. Norwegian Elkhound puppies are SO adorable!!

    Ugh, I definitely get annoyed when people don't use their turn signals! I mean c'mon, people!

    Aww your bro is super cute!

  5. C: cool: you were even before you filled this out

  6. So funny, you press snooze when you wake up, but my pet peeve is people who press snooze constantly. I rarely press snooze, just cause it annoys me so much!

  7. I call turn signals directionals for some reason =) totally bugs me when peeps don't use them!

    get ready to be unemployed and my shopping buddy! <3

  8. Love this survey! Did it a few weeks ago! Super cute!

  9. Girl whens your bday?! I am turning 25 september 9!

  10. Just letting you know:

    A) I love doing surveys like this as well. You can learn little tidbits about people you never knew you needed to know. Such as Veges You Don't Like - I find it totally interesting that you don't like cooked carrots, but you'll eat them raw. For most people, it's the opposite!

    B) I'm creating my own survey! See if you like it :)

    C) If I can't create a survey I like, I'm stealing this one!
