Are you sick of random facts about me? Too bad, I love doing stuff like this!
(A) Age: 21. I spent my teenager years counting down the days until this birthday and by the time it came, I didn’t even care 🙂
(B) Bed Size: I think it’s a twin? There are two twin beds in my room… because there are two twins in there!
(C) Chore You Hate: I kind of hate all chores, especially ones that pertain to cleaning bathrooms. I’d rather clean the toilet than clean the shower, though. Is there a comfortable way to clean a shower? Answer- no.
(D) Dogs? I’m a bird person 🙂
(E) Essential Start To Your Day: Breakfast! Always, always, always.
(F) Favorite Color: Burnt orange and mustard yellow. Any autumnal color, really 🙂
(G) Gold or Silver? Silver.
(H) Height: 5’6 and 3/4. My driver’s license says 5’7″. I am slightly bitter because my doctor once told me I would be 5’8″. I have hardly grown between my sixth grade graduation and now… no joke!
(I) Instruments You Play: None. I can play a few songs on the piano, though…
…well enough that I can play in public and get complimented by a stranger, apparently 🙂
(J) Job Title: Kid’s Club Babysitter
(K) Kids: Eventually. I really want two girls!
(L) Live: Orange County. I feel grateful to have grown up here, but I am SO ready for a change. I’ve lived here my whole life!
(M) Mom’s Name: Erika.
(N) Nicknames: Kate is a nickname for Katherine. I’ve also been known to go by Katie and Chach (long story 🙂 )
(O) Overnight Hospital Stays? I don’t think I’ve had any, but if memory serves, either my sister or I had to return to the hospital for a little bit a week after we were born. And by memory serving, I mean that one of my parents told me that… I can hardly remember what I had for breakfast, let alone going to the hospital when I was a week old!
(P) Pet Peeve: Slow moving people. People that drive slowly, walk slowly, talk slowly… ugh, it’s the worst!
(Q) Quote from a Movie: ‘Do you like Huey Lewis and the News?’ -American Psycho
(R) Right or Left Handed? Right.
(S) Siblings: Older brother and twin sister.
(T) Time You Wake Up? Between 6 and 7. I slept until almost 7 today and it was glorious.
(U) Underwear: Yes, I’m wearing it? It matches my shirt, too!
(V) Vegetable You Dislike: Beets… blech! Do pickles count? Because I hate pickles.
What Makes You Run Late: Myself! I have poor time management skills.
(X) X-Rays You’ve Had Done: I think I’ve just had my teeth done… although I have memories of getting them done in a different office that was definitely not for my teeth. I have no idea what it could be, though!
(Y) Yummy Food You Make: My breakfast was pretty good… recipe at the end 🙂
(Z) Zoo, Favorite Animal: Monkeys, penguins, toucans, coatis… probably coatis!
Back to my breakfast- I had bought two jars of carrot baby food because I saw a recipe that called for it. I could not find the recipe for the life of me, so I made one up!
It had to involve bananas… when your bananas look like that, you have to use them so your family stops complaining about the house smelling like them.
Baby Food Muffins
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 2 ripe bananas, mashed
- 8 oz (2 jars) pureed baby food carrots
- 1/3 cup applesauce
- 1/4 cup egg whites
- Mix baby food, bananas, applesauce, and egg whites.
- Add flour, baking powder, and pumpkin pie spice.
- Pour into muffin pans and bake at 325 degrees for 40 minutes.
- Best served on top of oat bran 🙂
But plain is good, too!
Your turn! Letter H- How tall are you? I am a creeping creeper who creeps and love finding out people’s heights… which is why I love reading these surveys on other blogs!
