I have a confession. I am a sucker for cutesy, all-about-me type of posts. I have officially been sucked in to the ABCs post that I originally saw Gabriella do. I have no shame.

A = Age: 12. Just checking if you tuned out already. In truth – late 20s but cannot wait to be 30. I always wish I was older.

B = Bed size: King, baby!

C = Chore you dislike: MOPPING!!! I will not do it. I make Peter mop. Also, I hate putting away dishes. It seems like a never-ending chore.

D = Dogs: Roxy. A pit/lab mix. Yet, somehow, she is the laziest, wussiest dog I know.


E= Essential start to your day: Nursing Baby B. I love snuggling him.

F = Favorite color: Bright green! Although you would think a cool blue based on my blog, huh? Bright green just doesn’t look too good on screen. 😉

G = Gold or silver: Silver. Although I do love this cross necklace my mom handed down to me from my uncle that has both.


H = Height: 5’5″

I = Instruments you play(ed): Ha! The most musical thing I do is fart.

J = Job title: Cook. Chauffer. Teacher. Maid. Personal Assistant. Professional planner and organizer. AKA – mommy!

K = Kids: Pretty sure you know the answer to this one…

chilling siblings

L = Live: Metro Atlanta area

M = Mom’s name: Superwoman. Or her day name is Lisa.

N = Nicknames: Technically Tina is a nickname as my full name is Christina. I prefer Tina, though. I think Mommy is my only other nickname. No wait. In college, friends called me Tinabell.

O = Overnight hospital stays: All for the kids! Both deliveries were overnight stays, of course. Then, when Makenzie stopped breathing and we had to go to the ER on my birthday two years ago. That was fun. Or more accurately, the most miserable four nights of my life. Oh…and that time I was hit by a car.

P = Pet peeves: Rude people. I just don’t get it. Also, when you call someone back immediately after missing the call…but there’s no answer!

Q = Quote from a movie: I only know quotes from the best TV show of all time. So – “You’re so pretty” from FRIENDS because it’s only one of my favorite sayings ever.

R = Righty or lefty: Righty

S = Siblings: One brother. One sister. Both younger. Both goofy. Both awesome!

orange mouth

T = Time you wake up: Which time? 2 am? 5 am? 6:30 am? I wish I was kidding.

U = Underwear: Black leather with spikes. Once again…checking your attention span.

V = Vegetables you don’t like: Asparagus and okra!!! Blechety blech blech blech.

W = What makes you run late: You try getting out the door with a toddler and an infant on time! Yea, that’s what I thought.

X = X-rays you’ve had: My hand/arm when hit by the car. I think that’s it.

Y = Yummy food you make: Enchiladas. I make a mean enchilada. Since I pre-write my posts, its very likely I’m eating an enchilada as this publishes in fact.

Z = Zoo animal favorites: Penguins. They’re cute and funny.

Question(s) of the Evening – Height? Icky veggie? Essential start to your day?

    5’2″! Love all veggies! Snooze button!

    I love you, you’re hilarious!

  2. Cynthia says:

    Mushrooms! Hate them with a passion.

  3. Tina says:

    I loved your answer to musical intrument haha 😉 Penguins are my favorite as well! I cannot watch the movie March of the Penguins without hysterically crying. Fact about me: my FULL name is actually Tina, it isn’t short for Christina like everyone thinks.

    • Tina says:

      I haven’t seen that movie. I worry how I will react to it.

      And so interesting your FULL name is Tina. That’s awesome!

  4. I’m 5’5, too. 5’5.5 to be exact (im always so proud of that half of an inch!)

    • Tina says:

      I think I’m technically 5′ 4.5″ myself. I always round up though. LOL I get the pride in the extra 1/2 inch!

  5. 5’2″ on a good day! Avocado…YUCK! Workout, kiss my hubby, coffee and then oats…in that order!

    • Tina says:

      How did I not realize you don’t like avocado?! I enjoy it but its not a super favorite like a lot of bloggers feel.

  6. I also have trouble w/okra. Maybe I need to have someone make it really well for me.

  7. I’m just shy of 5’4, I haven’t come across a veggie I’ve really disliked (olives, but they are a fruit apparently), and essential start to my day is a workout followed by a big breakfast and coffee!

  8. i have a lab/pit mix too! also, the returning phone call thing annoys me so much!!

  9. Height= 5’7″ (almost)

    Icky Veggie=eggplant (although I like it sometimes….I’m weird like that)

    Essential start to my day: prayer

  10. loved your attention span checkers!!!

  11. Michelle says:

    5’10, peas, coffee 🙂

    We had a fun (note sarcasm) hospital stay with Livie too. People at the hospital thought I was weird b/c I stayed the entire time. Ummm she was 3 weeks old! I was nursing her! She had an IV! Meanwhile, I shocked that there was a 3 week old next door to us whose parents only came on the weekends. 🙁 🙁

    • Tina says:

      For a few days I will be there 24/7!!! I understand not being able when its weeks or months (God forbid) but a few days? Yea. A parent should be there if they can.

  12. Great post – you made me laugh out loud!! I love these types of posts as well. It’s an easy one to do if you’re having writers’ block or just aren’t ‘feelin’ it’ one day.

  13. Wow, we were on the same wave length tonight! I just did the same post – and I also said my favorite underwear was black leather with spikes! 🙂 You’re hilarious!

    I didn’t know you had a pit mix pup! Roxy and Charlie could play together!!!

  14. Stacy says:

    Cute post and a fun way to learn more about you!
    I’m 5’5. I like all veggies, except eggplant sometimes grosses me out. And a big, filling breakfast is a must every morning.

  15. Lee says:

    5’7. I don’t like eggplant or asparagus.

  16. Lauren says:

    Penguins are so cute – I love the movie Happy Feet with them!
    I’m 5’6″ 3/4, but I round up to 5’7″

  17. Height: 5’4.5″ yep..when you’re short you count half inches 😉

  18. oh, wow – I had to scroll back up to see if I was reading your blog – I don’t think I knew you had a dog?? 🙂

    I’m 5’8″, icky veggie – peas and brussels sprouts. essential start – fresh juice and at the very least a brisk walk 🙂

    • Tina says:

      She has made a few appearances on walks and things. She just hates the camera and really does nothing but laze about all day. Love her, but she’s kinda boring. Although she does entertain us with m. She is so scared of that child.

  19. that’s so funny…i feel like we should be the same height! i’m 5’10” though so clearly we’re not 🙂 and i HATE cucumbers, except in sushi. YUM!

  20. Julie says:

    Beets. – gaaaaag.

  21. Instrument is awesome! HAHA! And asparagus and okra are two of my faves! LOL! Of course, the kids are terribly cute 🙂

  22. Robyn says:

    Height? 5’2″
    Icky veggie? I am not sure. I love most veggies.
    Essential start to your day? Coffee w/ Mocha Cappuccino mixed in.

  23. Dorry says:

    I’ve loved reading everyone’s ABC posts! I think I might do it for my post tomorrow. I agree about the veggies. I’ll eat asparagus if it’s the only option, but I’d NEVER choose it.

  24. Mandy says:

    height.. 5’1 .. icky veggie mushrooms blechhhh
    essential start… hug from hubby 🙂

    And I love Mumble 😉 And so does Bella.

  25. Danica says:

    height: 5’5″
    veggie: cucumbers. i just can’t take that little after-taste they give. yuucck
    essential start to day: plenty of time to wake up. i am not one of those people that could ever just roll out of bed and be somewhere in 15 minutes (unfortunately!). and if i attempt that, boy am i cranky! :/

  26. mwahahah! the most musical thing you do is fart?! oh you crack me up, lady!

    my answers: 5’4″, contacts or glasses!, and i couldn’t think of a veggie that i don’t like when i did my abc post either! i love ’em all, even asparagus and okra!

  27. […] under: Uncategorized — Becca @ 9:53 pm I’ve seen this on several blogs recently (Tina‘s for one), and decided that I wanted to do it, […]

  28. I think it’s hilarious that you wrote ” Blechety blech blech blech” 🙂 I like asparagus and okra as long as they’re cooked a certain way. Peas and lima beans are another story. Let’s just say ” Blechety blech blech blech!

  29. You crack me up. I didn’t know you got hit by a car!!!!! And I vote for more pics of Roxy on the blog… she’s adorable! 🙂

  30. I have to start my day with coffee!! My son’s room is bright green–it’s a fun color! 🙂

  31. What I love about lists like this is that you get such a great snap shot of a person. 5’5 some days 5’6 other days. I want to love tomatoes but I can’t stand them.

  32. Love this post idea so much that I’m going to borrow it for myself. A sneak peek:

    Height: 5’10”
    Icky veggie: Kohlrabi. What do you do with one of those?
    Essential start: I wish I could say “yoga” or something active, but it’s usually a couple of taps on the snooze button.

  33. Sarah says:

    Essential to start my day? A cup of coffee (but I’m proud I’ve whittled it down to one!)

  34. Errign says:

    I love these ABC posts – I think I am going to do one for one of my pre-published posts for Singapore (Any interest in a guest post?)

    I laughed at your “I” answer 😀 and penguins are my favorite too!

  35. Allie says:

    You were hit by a car? OMG. Crazy! I LOVE Roxy.. I have a lab pit bull mix also.. so lazy and shy!

  36. 5’7″, mushrooms, and a bathroom break. It’s the first thing I do no matter what!!

  37. The picture of her sleeping on your chest is precious. I’m so glad she’s okay now!

  38. so glad you joined in on the fun. loved it!

  39. Jackie says:

    Love these lists! I’m a sucker for reading them! And I learned some valuable information about you — like the fact that you live in Atlanta. We’re making our first ever long-weekend trip there at the end of the month, so I may hit you up for tips and tricks for fun things to do with the kiddo!

  40. Ok, I have to ask… why do you always want to be older??

    • Tina says:

      A lot of my friends are already 30 and I hate being the young one. It might also stem from being the youngest in my grade growing up and always being the last to do things.

  41. Your dog is SO cute!!

    I LOVE me some enchiladas! You can make them for me anytime 😉

  42. I’m 5’4”. I agree with you on okra – YUCK! And the essential start to my day is a filling, balanced breakfast. 🙂

  43. I = Instruments you play(ed): Ha! The most musical thing I do is fart.

    That made me laugh so hard.

  44. I maintain that I’m 5’4 but my mom insists I’m 5’5. She measured me with a tape measure and it said 5’5 but I still think the dr is more accurate and she said I’m barely 5’4.
    I’m not a big fan of peppers. I will eat them, but only if they’re really small pieces. I can’t eat big chunks.
    My day doesn’t start without coffee. I need coffee to function.

  45. Kelly says:

    I love these!!

    Height: 5’7
    Hate Lima Beans
    A good workout

  46. Cara says:

    Height: 5’1
    Icky veggies: asparagus as well

    I love the picture of your kids! So cute!

  47. AH, when were you hit by a car?

    Also, love the picture of M and B laying on their pillows together 🙂

  48. Oh my gosh girl, you crack me up! Love the musical instrument!
    I can’t believe you got hit by a car, but I just read the above comment…nice that you got money for school, I guess!

    Icky Veggie=Radish
    Essential Start=Breakfast and COFFEE!
