ABC's of me

My sweet friend, Andrea at My Chihuahua Bites just did this fun survey so I thought I'd play along!!

A- My AIR CONDITIONER is set on: 74, which may sound really warm but we just got some great new ceiling fans installed all over our house as well as this weird fan thing in our roof. The guy literally came and cut part of our roof out and installed this fan thing that sucks hot air out of your house. I was so skeptical at first but let me tell you it works wonders!!

B- My BEDROOM theme is: No theme, just very neutral black, brown, tan, white. I'll have to do a house post with pictures soon! (Here's our new bedding!)

C- The CAR in the driveway is: I have my beloved 4Runner (a gift from the hubs 2 years ago! It's perfect!) and he drives a Lexus sedan (no clue which ones since they don't have names! LOL) Here's the day the hubs took me to pick up my car!

D- My DESK looks: Hmmm... yea I don't have a desk anymore! :)

E- The EXACT time I wake up daily is: Sorry... no exact time since I stopped working. And I'm sure as soon as baby Trey is here it will definitely fluctuate daily!

F- The FIRST thing I wash in the shower is: my hair! Or if I'm not washing my hair (YAY for dry shampoo) then I wash my face first.

G- My GARAGE is filled with: We just paid the little brother to clean it out so right now all that's in there is the dogs crates, a full size fridge (mainly for beer, soda and meat) and the cabinet to Trey's bathroom that the hubs is painting.

H- My HOUSE is: Awesome, well we think so at least! It's our "starter home", a three story townhouse with 4 bathrooms, a garage and lots of room - I just wish it had a bigger yard. We bought it when we were 25 and have done so much to make it ours.

I- If you peeked INSIDE my bedroom you'd see: my unmade bed, haven't made it up there yet, a bag of clothes to donate, a bassinet!!, and puppy beds!

J- My favorite JUICE is: Wow, this one is tough, I love o.j. in the morning - but limeade and lemonade during the day!

K- The best part of my KITCHEN is: Gosh, I'm not a huge fan of our kitchen, we plan on remodeling this winter or early next Spring. So right now my only favorite thing about it is how everyone congregates there when we are entertaining. Didn't someone say the kitchen is the heart of the home? Here's a picture of us right after we bought our house - in our kitchen!

L- The LAST person who visited my home was: Some college buds!

M- The last piece of MAIL for me was: A gift for Trey from an old work friend, so sweet!

N- My NEIGHBORS think I'm: Martha Stewart? They know I'm always baking/making/crafting something. We have a very close-knit neighborhood, not a day goes by that I don't hang out with or just chit chat with one of my neighbors. I will have a hard time with this when it's time to move, that's just one thing you can't look up on the MLS listings!

O- If you OPENED my fridge you'd see: Lots of leftovers from our 4th of July party.

P- My last house PARTY was: Small party = 4th of July, Actual "house party" Halloween 3 years ago.... it got a LITTLE out of hand. 50+ people, and I had to get a brand new garage door the week after...

Q- A QUICK meal I like to fix is: BLTs!!

R- My favorite ROOM of the house is: Trey's nursery - the post is coming soon!!

S- The SHAMPOO brand I use is: Biolage Delicate Care Sulfate Free Shampoo & Hair Masque. I LOVE this stuff!! If you color your hair you should definitely try it out!

T- My largest TELEVISION is: 50ish? That's the hubs department

U- UNDER my bed you will find: some dust bunnies and I'm sure a wandering sock or two..

V- The last time I VACUUMED was: Yesterday... two dogs, a cat, a husband - I vacuum almost every day. I'm not lying when I say that my Dyson was one of my favorite purchases of all time!

W- Looking out my WINDOW I see: Actually today I see our contractor guy replacing our shutters and working on some trim that needed to be fixed around the brick.

X- I wish I had X-TRA: Money. Who doesn't?!

Y- My YARD is: Out front: small but gorgeous. Backyard: um... not so gorgeous? We are getting a HUGE stump taken out (finally) from a monster tree we had smack dab in the middle of our yard. Not of our yard, but this is us before my birthday the year before last on our front steps! (I need to take a picture of our front yard apparently!)

Z- ZZZZZZZ My bedtime is: I'd love to be asleep by midnight at the latest but sometimes I can't get comfortable and end up staying up waaaay too late! Thank goodness for my boppy maternity pillow or I'd probably never sleep!!

I hope you've enjoy reading this! Please let me know if you do one too! I'd love to come read it!! xoxo

You'll love the big house fan! My parents have one and it really does make a big difference! You'll probably get a lot of use in the spring & fall!

This was super cute but... Dry Shampoo?! I just asked someone in my office about it and I am apparently the odd one out on this. What brand do you like of that?

I always love reading these and it’s always fun getting to know more about you! I actually decided to do this one too after seeing it here.

The fan thing that you got installed sounds great and like it keeps the house nice and cool for summer which is great considering how hot it’s been.

I love your new bedding. The pattern is so pretty!

Your car sounds really nice and I would love to get an SUV next time around. Being high up on the road makes me feel safer or something if that makes any sense at all.

Your house sounds so nice and I know how crafty and decorative you are, so I’m sure it shows. I bet the kitchen remodel will be great once you start that. I wish I were one of your neighbors. I think the boys would hate us because we’d be back and forth between each others houses all of the time ;)

The 50+ party sounds like it was fun, but a little crazy. Love it!

I’ve never heard of that new Biolage shampoo. I may need to try it next time I get highlights.

Love that photo of you and J.D. out in front of your house…XOXO

Your car in the driveway is so cool! Do you still have it until now? Do you have any plans of trading it for a more modern one? Since it is a gift from your hubby, I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be easy to replace it, right?
