The A-Z of Erika

I just couldn't resist doing an A-Z of me.

A. Age: 32- shhh I don't say it very often.
B. Bed Size: Queen
C. Chore you hate: Putting away laundry. I can fold but I hate putting things back.
D.  Dogs: I have two darling little pug monsters. Winston and Yoda and I often wonder if they are planning on taking over the world.
E.  Essential start to your day::  Coffee and Checking emails- a must!
F.  Favorite Color: Mustard Yellow and that retro turquoise.
G.  Gold or Silver: Gold! I think I am a little allergic to silver.
H.  Height: 5'5
I.  Instruments you play: Piano and Flute. I played Flute in high school before all the American Pie movies :) Don't judge me.
J.  Job Title: Oil painting blogger. I also do the books for a couple of tech start ups. 
K.  Kids:  I have 2 puppy children- who do like to be held like babies.
L.  Live: Born and raised in Portland, Oregon.
M.  Mother's Name: Vilma
N.  Nicknames: Some people call me E. 
O.  Overnight hospital stays: Nope
P.  Pet Peeves: When my hubs pretends he is listening to me :).
Q.  Quote from a Movie“Close you eyes and tap your heels together three times. And think to yourself, there's no place like home.”- the Wizard of Oz
R.  Right handed or Left handed.  I am a righty all the way!  This is random but I can only snap my fingers with my right hand. Left doesn't work.
S.  Siblings: 2 older sisters... even though they try to convince people they are the younger sister.
T.  Time to wake up: 7:00 am.
U.  Underwear: Stripes
V.  Vegetables you hate: Lima Beans.. I got one stuck in my nose when I was 4. I can't even look at one.
W.  What makes you run late: Myself. or I should really blame television.
X.  X-rays you have: just dental.  I did do one of those head scans at the dentist and that freaked me out a little.
Y.  Yummy food that you make: I make a mean grilled cheese.  Want to have a grilled cheese eating contest?
Z.  Zoo animals: I love the elephants and giraffes.

i also love your dress and don't care too much for putting laundry away either now that you mention it. i thought the 360-degree head x-ray as the dentist is the coolest and glad there was something inside!

Very cute idea! I can't stand putting laundry away either. I've had 2 baskets sitting in our bedroom for a month now. I just pick from it when I can't find something to wear :) I have family that live in Eugene, Oregon.

Danielle said...

Courtney said...

hey- we are exactly the same age. that makes me happy (weird, i know) because i feel like so many cool bloggers are in their 20s... we need our 30-something bloggers too!
i also have two fur babies who like to be held like human babies. i started doing the a-z and never published. this gives me some motivation to finish the post.

punkychewster said...

yay! you love elephants and giraffes too! after elephants, giraffes are my next favorite! this list is so cute i will do this on my blog and link back to you!
