A-B-C-T-J-and W-F!

Now I know my ABC’s, next time won’t you sing with meeeeeeeeee!

Happy Friday everybody! And no, I didn’t totally forget my alphabet. I’ve been seeing this “ABC’s of Me” around blogworld the past few days and well, I’m a total sucker for survey type thingies so I thought I’d join in!

Also, since I had the day off, I HAD to hit up my two favorite foodie establishments: Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods! More on that in a minute, but first let me see if I do still remember the alphabet!

A. Age: 26 years old

B. Bed size: King, though once my ex and I split all the furniture, I will have a queen which is what I prefer. I only use 1/3 of the bed I have now!

C. Chore you hate: Cleaning the bathtub/shower! I usually just go ahead and start cleaning in my skimpies…I’ll end up getting a shower before it’s all over with anyways, might as just well go with it!

D. Dogs: LOVE them, but I just don’t have the time it takes to have one of my own right now. Besides, Tiger would be SUPER jealous!!

E. Essential start to your day: BREAKFAST!! Sweet, savory, gimme gimme!

F. Favorite color: Green…like mo-nay!

G. Gold or Silver: Silver

H. Height: 5″7′ I’m the shortie in the family. My dad is 6″1′, mom and sis are both 5″8′!

I. Instruments you play: I was in the band in middle school and used to play the flute…can’t remember a single note now, but I can play a mean “Twinkle Twinkle” on the piano!

J. Job title: Computed Tomography Technologist…sounds so much smarter than CAT scan tech!

K. Kids: None and there probably won’t ever be any. I just don’t really think I want to have children and it’s taken some time but my mom has finally accepted that fact and claims Tiger as her “grand-kitty”!

L. Live: Hickville, Tennessee

M. Mom’s name: Janine

N. Nickname: It’s kind of sad that I really don’t have a nickname other than the occasional Heather ______ (insert word that rhymes with Heather…people are so original!)

O. Overnight hospital stays: Once when I was about 4 or 5. I tripped and fell at an amusement park and ended up with quite the “goose egg” on my forehead. They kept me overnight to be sure I didn’t have a concussion.

P. Pet peeve: When people hold their eating utensils like a shovel, aka “caveman style”

Q. Quote from a movie: “Am I that transparent? I want you…I need you…oh baby, oh baby!” from “Ten Things I Hate About You” which will ALWAYS be my favorite movie! I can practically recite every line!

R. Righty or Lefty: Righty

S. Siblings: One younger sister, Tori, whom most of you have “met”

T. Time you wake up: Depends on what shift I’m working that week, but normally between 5 and 6am on the weekdays and usually 7:30 on the weekends (because I’m an old lady that doesn’t know how to sleep late!)

U. Underwear: Cute, preferably Victoria’s Secret

V. Vegetables you don’t like: There aren’t very many, but I don’t care for radishes or frisee lettuce

W. What makes you run late: My computer…note to self: stop checking email/reading blogs in the morning

X-rays you’ve had: Lots of CXR’s (chest x-rays) as an infant (premie baby=sickly baby), knee, shoulder, ankle, hip, pelvis, toe, finger. I told you guys that I’m accident prone!

Yummy food you make: Everything I make is yummy, but some of my favorites are Everything-But-the Sugar Oatmeal Cookies, Stuffed Peppers/Portobellas, and Irresistible Carrot Pan-CAKES!

Z. Favorite zoo animal: Cheetahs!

Ok, that was fun! Now, onto the grocery treasures! Forgive the bad lighting. Heavy traffic coming home=diminishing daylight for foodie pics upon arrival at la casa!

Forgive me Joe, for I have sinned. It has been one whole month since I have set foot on your lovely foundation. I swear I did 15 “hail Mary’s” on the way through the door! 😉

Trader Joe’s:

  • Refried pinto beans
  • Crunchy Valencia PB (because I can’t leave the store without a jar!)
  • Tuscan white bean hummus to use in a side-to-side comparison when I make Matt’s recipe tomorrow!
  • Reduced Guilt Pizza Primavera–On sale for $1.99!!!
  • Veggie Burgs
  • Vegetable Masala Burgs
  • Cinnamon raisin Ezekiel bread (it has been TOO long!)
  • Fully cooked brown rice
  • Dried apple rings
  • Whole wheat flour tortillas

Ahh, we meet again Whole Paycheck! This time the joke’s on you…with a little help from the coupon department, you did NOT give my wallet a beating! Ha!

Whole Foods:

  • Pink Lady apples (proof that sampling does in fact work…so juicy and crisp!)
  • Siggis yogurt
  • Cinnamon Puffins (on sale for $1.99! So sad they were out of the PB flavor)
  • Bulk bin finds: animal cookies, chocolate nut medley, honey nut granola, TVP
  • Yellow miso
  • Unsalted pretzels
  • Jocolats and Larabars
  • Daiya cheddar
  • Chia seeds (the quicker, overnight oat perker-upppppppper…chia seeeeeeeeds!)

Notice anything in particular that stood out from those purchases?

“I’m bringing Teddie back! Them otha boys don’t know how ta act!”

I’d like to hear some of your ABC’s! Feel free to pick a letter or two to share with the class!
