Fun Surverys

The ABC’s of me!

I saw this idea on my friend Jamie’s blog, and thought what a fun prompt to keep writing.  So here goes!

A – Age: 43

B – Breakfast Today: Um, I skipped.  I did however sample a piece of the Crème Brulee cake I brought in to work

C – Current Time: 1630 hrs

D – Drink You Had Last: Water!

E – Exercise of Choice: Running and weights.  My two favs!!

F – Favorite Song: I can’t really say. If I were to pick ONE, it would be the classic “Way you look tonight” by Frank Sinatra.  It’s my wedding song, and the song I sang to both my kids when they were young before they went to sleep.

G – Grossest Memory: My youngest daughter throwing up ALL over me.  And me, in turn, throwing up for hours afterwards.  EWWWWWWWWWWW

H – Hometown: Duluth, Minnesota

The Lift Bridge on Lake Superior, Duluth MN

I – In Love With: My hubby, always…
J – Jealous Of: People who get to 1. Do a job that they love or 2. Work from home or 3. Don’t have to work at all!

K – Kids: Two girls, 16 and 9.

Aren't they just pretty?!?  <3  Pic from our summer vacation last year.

L – Longest Friendship: Hard to say…I’ve got lots of life long friends thankfully!

M – Middle Name: Rae.  I was supposed to be a boy with the middle name of Robert (and first name Michael) but came out a girl so my parents went with Michelle Rae.

N – Number of Siblings: One amazing sister who always knows when I need her, even when I don’t ask for help.

O – Occupation: Lab (Pathology) Supervisor

P – Pet Peeve: Dishonesty, being late, loud chewing


Q – Question You’re Always Asked: Did you fly planes when you were in the Air Force?  NO. We aren’t all that lucky.  I worked in the lab for 20 years (and still do full time), far from exciting as flying a plane.  lol

R – Reason to Smile: My family, my friends, my coworkers…Oh and the biggest reason-I woke up this morning!

S – Snack You Ate Last: Kettle cooked chips.  Don’t judge, it’s cheat week day.

T – Time You Woke Up: 5:50 a.m.

U – Underwear Color: Blue

V – Vacation Destination: Anywhere with a beach! Hope for this to be my home in the next few years!

South Beach, Miami

W – Workout Today: Trying a new workout by Tony Horton and hopefully a quick run before my daughter’s dance class later tonight.

X – X-Rays You’ve Had: Head, chest, the routine ones…

Y – Your Favorite Food: Seafood, I could eat it daily but my kids get tired of it.  “Fish again!?!?!?” LOL

Z – Zodiac Sign: Capricorn

Play along!

What’s your sign?  What is your middle name?  Last thing you ate? Dream job?

Cheers! ❤

  1. That was fun….I think this will be tomorrow’s post 😉

    What’s your sign? Capricorns in the house……1/1
    What is your middle name? Abiodun (Pronunciation:A-bio-dun)
    Last thing you ate? Finishing up a banana and peanut butter
    Dream job? Working for The Children’s Defense Fund or opening my own special ed school.


  2. What fun! It’s great getting to know you better! I think you’ll be ‘jealous’ of me Michelle – cause I don’t work outside the home – My food blog is ‘my job’ (but of course I don’t make any money – it’s just for fun!). And my two favs are running and weights too! I worked for the Army as a civilian years ago in Fort Clayton (Panama). That was a great experience – my middle name is Marie and I’m a Libra!! (I really think we could’ve been ‘sisters’!) xoxox

      1. Haha! I use a Canon Rebel T3, natural light only (moving around the house with all my little props to get the best light!) and take lots of pics – choosing the best ones! I also check out magazine and cookbook photos to see what they look like and try to use them as ideas to make mine better – after all imitation is the greatest form of flattery! Have fun with it! 😀💗😀

  3. Fun post! Creme brulee cake sounds amazing. And loud chewing really has been bothering me lately too. I never noticed it before, or maybe I was just never around loud chewers in the past.

  4. Loved this!! I am one of the lucky ones who LOVES their job. I always tell people that I feel as though I won the jack pot by landing this job! 🙂

    I’m a fiery Aries with the middle name of Anne who just ate some trail mix! 🙂

      1. Same kind of thing with me…my mom’s name is Anne and so is my grandmother’s…thankfully for me, they stuck it in the middle, because that would just make it too confusing at the dinner table! lol


  5. I’m also super super jealous of people who can work from home or don’t have to work at all. It’s just not fair.


  6. I totally might steal this for when i need a day off (with all the crazy going on). My first thought as I was reading this was that I LOVE that you went with military time. I didn’t see the ocean for 10 years (6-16) so it is something that I will never take for granted. I love the ocean (though it is usually too cold for me to swim in) and the beach (but I hate sand). I’m not normal.

  7. I am very lucky to be able not to work, but I did, for many years.

    I’m Aquarius (my sister is Capricorn). Last thing I ate was that spinach waffle with almond butter for breakfast.

    I actually really do enjoy not working. I keep myself pretty busy!
