A to Z: A Little Survey About Me

Hello, friends! Jim took a few extra days off for the long weekend so we're still "on vacation" over here until Thursday. I'll recap our long-weekend then, in the meantime, I thought I'd do this survey that a bunch of my favourite bloggers did last week. It's fun and might help you get to know me a little bit better, so enjoy!

A - Age: 32. I was lucky enough to spend my 32nd birthday in NYC this year!!

C - Current Time: 10:27 p.m. I'm a chronic night owl. It's still technically early for me.

D - Drink You Had Last: Water!

E - Easiest Person To Talk To: My sister, Vanessa. I can tell her anything, and I mean ANYTHING. From stupid fears, to big secrets, to gross confessions, anything.

F - Favourite Song: This particular song is on repeat right now - Stay A Little Longer by Brothers Osborne. So good, guys!

G - Grossest Memory: Definitely that time a rat ran over my bare foot when I was in New York! *shudder*

My Two Boys

O - One Wish: To have a long and happy life, full of peace, love, patience and family.

P - Person You Spoke To Last On The Phone: Uhhhhh *checks phone* my mother-in-law…right before we all jumped on Skype to chat, which was 5 days ago. (I rarely talk on the phone!).

Q - Question You're Always Asked: Are you going to go back to work? Long answer: see future blog post. Short answer: not right now.

R - Reason To Smile: This guy!


S - Song You Last Sang: Shake It Off by T. Swift. Sully loves when I sing and shimmy to this song in the car.

T - Time You Woke Up: 9:40 a.m.! I slept in the basement last night since it was hot and I wanted to stay up and read, which means I got to sleep-in, uninterrupted!

U - Underwear Colour: Black.

V - Vacation Destination: Nothing on the books just yet, but maybe a Florida getaway this winter.

W - Worst Habit: Biting my finger nails.

Y - Your Favourite Food: Bananas.

Z - Zodiac Sign: Taurus (reliable, patient, practical, devoted, responsible, stable, stubborn).

Your turn! 
Tell me your favourite song, your biggest fear and your worst habit!


  1. This is cute, I love surveys like this. A rat ran over your foot! Ugh that's soo gross and I would have freaked.

    1. Haha yup! I wanted to douse my foot in hand sanitizer after it happened!

  2. I am not sure I have a favorite song but really like "Honey I'm Good" right now! Biggest fear - being stuck in an elevator, period!
    Worst habit? Probably being too OCD about all the wrong things! lol. I used to bite my nails too, but am better now - or most days I am!

    1. Oh, I love that song right now too! Always puts me in a good mood when I hear it. Haha, yes, being stuck in an elevator, period would suck. I'm pretty good with my nails nowadays, but one or two always seem to get bitten here and there…oops ;)

  3. one of my all time fave songs is How Bizzare by OMC. And Shoop by Salt n Peppa! biggest fear: OTHER driver's errors that could hurt me or my family

    1. Ohh, those are GOOD songs! Those take my down memory lane. Yes, driving is a different ball game now that we have kiddos of our own!

  4. Favourite song right now? Probably a cover of Take Me To Church by Sofia Karlberg.
    Biggest Fear? Losing loved ones. Also, the wind. I HATE the wind.
    Worst habit? probably checking my phone.

    1. Hahaha, I HATE the wind too! It makes me super grumpy!
      Ah yes, checking my phone is seriously a very bad habit of mine :(

  5. I have to admit to being curious about your work plans, too! You are a nurse, right? Not like those are going away any time soon!

    Favorite song: Either Tiny Dancer by Elton John or Maps by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs or Stairway to Heaven by Led Zepplin. Biggest fear: something happening to Sawyer and getting lice Bad habit: worrying obsessively and thinking mean things about people I shouldn't. (I just realized I sound like a huge pain in the ass).

    1. Haha, I think lots of people are curious…I've put off doing a post on it because of the judgment surrounding SAHMs vs Working Moms. The move made things a bit more complicated too.

      I love Tiny Dancer. One of my favourite scenes in a movie is in Almost Famous when they are on the bus and all start singing it. And I'm pretty sure we all think mean things about people we shouldn't, we just won't admit it! ;)

  6. Looking forward to the going back to work post! Ugh, I don't even want to think about it yet

    1. It's in the works! It's hard to write since SAHM's vs Working Mom's is such a hot topic :)

  7. Aww this is cute! A great way to get to know your blogging buddies. <3

    1. It is! I think I read like 10 of them the past few weeks and really enjoyed them.
