A. Attached or Single?  Attached with a capital A!

B. Best friend? If I had to choose one person (not including my husband), it would be my sissy.  She’s seen the best of me and the worst of me and loves me just the same.

C. Cake or Pie?  Cake, preferably with lots of chocolate incorporated into the mix.

D. Day of choice?  Friday.  How can you not LOVE the day that signifies the end of a work week and the beginning of the weekend. Saturday comes in at a close second though.

E. Essential Item?  Chapstick, iPhone, wedding rings.

F. Favorite color?  Blue.

G. Gummy bears or worms?  Neither.  I’m not a gummy person.  It’s a texture thing.

H. Home town?  Even though Atlanta is home, Pawtucket, Rhode Island is my home town.  It’s where I was born and raised for the first 14 years of my life!  A little history lesson – Pawtucket is the home of the Slater Mill, the first fully mechanized cotton-spinning mill in America.  How interesting, huh?!

I. Favorite indulgence?  Rich, chocolaty desserts of any kind.  The more chocolaty the better!

holidays 016

J. January or July?  January.  Not only is it my birth month (woo!), but it brings with it the opportunity to start the year with a clean slate.  Love that.

K. Kids?  None yet!

L. Life isn’t complete without?  The people I love, laughter, and good food.

M. Marriage date?  June 30th!

holidays 029

N. Number of brothers/sisters?  1 little sister.

O. Oranges or Apples?  Apples.  Probably because of the apple + PB combo.

P. Phobias?  Entomophobia – the fear of insects.  Our trip to India (see R below) should be interesting!

Q. Quotes?  “If there ever comes a day when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart, I’ll stay there forever.”  -A.A. Milne

R. Reasons to smile?  It’s all about the little things for me – it’s Friday, Vishnu’s supposed to get home early from work today, the weather is beautiful, I had a great conversation with my mom this morning, my sister is visiting in a couple of weeks, our good friends are visiting soon there after, we’re headed to India in August…lots to smile about and be thankful for!

S. Season of choice?  Spring.  The transition from winter to spring is the best.  Warmer weather, green grass, spring rain…love it all!

T. Tag 5 People.  I love it when bloggers post these kinds of surveys, so with that being said, EVERYONE is tagged!

U. Unknown fact about me?  I hate the combination of mint + chocolate.  It grosses me out.  Yuck!

V. Vegetable?  Oh my gosh – I love most vegetables (except peas), especially when roasted.  Sweet potatoes, Brussels Sprouts, broccoli, zucchini, peppers, onions, squash – yum!

W. Worst habit?  I often forget to close or fully tighten the caps of shampoo/conditioner bottles, body wash, lotion, etc.  It’s a bad habit that has caused my husband much angst, so I’m working on it!

X. X-ray or Ultrasound?  X-ray at my last dentist’s appointment…?

Y. Your favorite food?  Hands down – anything with cheese or chocolate (my mom’s enchiladas, paneer makhani, chocolate everything, etc.).

Z. Zodiac sign?  Aquarius.  I’m a water baby!

Thanks for the tag, Colleen!  Like I said, I love these surveys that make their way around the blog world, so if you have a blog, be sure to join the bandwagon and share your ABCs!


Your turn – pick one or more of the above questions and share away!
