U is for Upperman

Of course U is for Upperman!

Is there a better opportunity to share a little about myself? And why not use the cool Alphabet Survey I happened across on Just Everyday Me while searching for healthy banana bread recipes? Without further ado…

A is for age: *sigh* Thirty-one… I honestly never thought I’d be THIS OLD.

B is for breakfast today: Cinnamon toast and an apple.

C is for currently craving: Well, there’s banana bread in the oven and it smells amazing, so a slice of that would be pretty perfect.

D is for dinner tonight: Date night with my hubby! Dinner at a cute little bistro called The Windmill Cafe. I’m looking forward to it!

E is for favorite type of exercise: Running because it burns tons of calories, but I most enjoy doing yoga.

F is for an irrational fear: Being pinned down or enclosed in a small space. Claustrophobia… yikes.

G is for gross food: I hate celery. Also mushrooms.

H is for hometown: Western Washington is where I’ll always call home, but I’m just about ready to head to California for a military move… not too shabby.

I is for something important: My family, for sure. I love my husband and daughter more than anything.

J is for current favorite jam: Sugar-free strawberry. Wait…what? Jam, like jelly, or jam like music? In the musical sense, I’ll jam to anything twangy.

K is for kids: I have one. She’ll be five in August. She’s adorable.

L is for current location: My kitchen (waiting for the banana bread).

M is for the most recent way you spent money: Um, we ate dinner at Wendy’s last night, so that? I had a Grilled Chicken Cobb. It was delish.

N is for something you need: Internet access. A massage. Hummus. A daily shower. A daily workout. A daily dose of dark chocolate.

O is for occupation: Wife, mama, aspiring author.

P is for pet peeve: Generally, lack of manners. Specifically, cheeky misspellings of words for business names, like: Kidz Kutz.

Q is for a quote: When I saw you I fell in love, and you smiled because you knew. ~ William Shakespeare

R is for random fact about you: I’m obsessive about dental hygiene. I’m an enthusiastic brusher, and I floss at least once a day.

S is for favorite healthy snack: I made mention of hummus above… Love it with carrots and cucumbers.

T is for favorite treat: Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, in all its forms (bars, cake, pie, ice cream, cookies), but the darker the better.

U is for something that makes you unique: Thanks to my husband’s job, I move a lot. We’ve been married nine year and during that time we’ve lived in seven homes. Next month, it’ll be eight.

V is for favorite vegetable: Carrots.

W is for today’s workout: Half hour circuit training, half hour yoga. Possibly a walk with the dogs later.

X is for X-rays you’ve had: Lots on my teeth, one on my arm when I fractured it as a child. A few ultrasounds when I was pregnant. Do those count?

Y is for yesterday’s highlight: Progress on my rewrite, dinner and laughter with my family.

Z is for your time zone: Pacific.

There you have it: All about Katy!

I totally think you should copy the Alphabet Survey, fill in your own answers, and add it to your blog. When you’re done, comment here or tweet me so I can drop by and get to know you better.
