404 Rare Weekend Blogging Flashback: Alphabet Meme

Rare Weekend Blogging Flashback: Alphabet Meme

We just got back from a quick day trip to Cologne and I saw that Farrah tagged me to complete an Alphabet Meme. Seeing that it’s a Sunday and I’ve reserved my weekend blogging for more random topics, I thought why not. Here’s a rare chance to get to know the Ann behind Travel Turtle.

Attached or Single: Attached and happy!

Best Friend: Definitely my husband. Being an expat, I actually don’t have too many girl friends locally, so I can’t really think of any girls specifically. Though, in my past I’ve had great friends who have proved themselves reliable time and again.

Cake or Pie: Both, I usually have cake, though. Pumpkin pie over everything else.

Day of Choice: I would enjoy Sundays more if stores were open. Or I’d enjoy Saturdays more if I knew I could save the shopping for Sunday.

Essential Item: I hate to say it, but it’s my phone. I take pictures all the time, video some of the time, and have recently started playing Tetris Blitz.

Favorite Color: Red and blue

Gummy Bears or Worms: Bears, but only haribo.

Hometown: I’m a military brat, so I either consider it to be Miami or Orlando.

Favorite Indulgence: Sleep. What I would do to sleep for 5 hours uninterrupted. Or to wake up past 5:00 am.

January or July: January! It’s also my birth month.

Kids: Two cute ones who keep me up all the time.

Life isn’t complete without: The other members of my clan. Even if I complain about sleep, the other members of my family complete me.

Marriage Date: My husband and I are both math geeks. It only makes sense that we married on 02-04-06.

Number of Siblings: None. And because I’m an only it was hard for me to accept that we were having a second. Now that I see them together, I think it’s the best thing.

Oranges or Apples: Oranges! I’m a Floridian at heart.

Phobias: Flying, squirrels, and putting too much about myself on the internet.

Quotes: ‘‘Come away, O human child! To the waters and the wild, With a faery, hand in hand, For the world’s more full of weeping than you can understand.” -W.B. Yeats. This was in my English teacher’s classroom and I always liked it.

Reasons to smile: Three and four day weekends, my kids smiles, a good dinner, a clean living room… not in this order.

Season of Choice: I like spring and fall.

Tag 5 People: I’m going to keep this open to whoever would like to respond.

Unknown fact about me: Stand By Me is my favorite movie. The first time I watched it, I watched it several times a day for a week. Then once a day. Then once a week. Then it was a movie I watched every five or so years. I’m watching it right now.

Vegetable: I’m a huge fan of green beans.

Worst habit: Not putting things away right away.

X-Ray or Ultrasound: Ultrasounds!

Your favorite food: Chicken, rice and beans from Puerto Rico.

Zodiac Sign: Capricorn

  1. Love reading all this!

  2. Thanks for doing this! And yep- I now think you are a total math nerd 🙂

  3. I don’t think I’ve ever watched Stand By Me all the way through. I’ll have to check to see if Netflix has it.

  4. My oldest was born on 04-02-04 and I SO wanted him to be born on 04-04-04. And my Dad always teased and wished my b-day was 03-25-75 instead of 03-26-75 because, well you’re a math geek so you know why… 😉

    Also, I would like to take a quick day trip to Cologne… 🙂

    Thanks so much for playing along!

    • Ah, yes. I can understand your dad’s pain. We didn’t get any good numbers with our own or kid’s birthdays. My son’s due date was in October 2010 and I wanted a 10.10.10 baby.

  5. What a great quote 🙂 So much fun to learn about you through this linky.
