Now You Know My ABC’s

by Courtney on February 23, 2011

I’m addicted…

I kid you not when I say that Cinnamon Chip Scones were probably one of the first three things that popped into my head this morning. (The other 2? “Why is Jay making so much noise right now…?” and “I really need to pee but I’m too lazy to get up.”) Winking smile

To go along with my scone, I enjoyed a black cherry Chobani, which somebody else apparently had his eye on…creeper alert!

And of course, I sipped on my coffee. Mmmmm. Smile

In case you’re wondering, we’ve been brewing Caramel Macchiato coffee from The Fresh Market these past few weeks. It’s probably one of my favorites, but a little pricier so we don’t but it too often.

Time to Learn Some ABCs!

Last week I was reading through Gabriela’s blog and absolutely loved her “Alphabet of Gabriela” post! Then yesterday, as I was getting ready to type up my own, I noticed that Julie had read my mind and posted her “ABC’s of PBF.” Great minds think alike! Winking smile

So now, I’m going to go ahead and do my own ABC’s, because really, who doesn’t like learning a little bit more about “the face behind the blog”?!?

Enjoy!

A.   Age: 27

B.    Bed size: Queen…but we need a King. Jay’s a bed hog Winking smile

C.   Chore you hate: Returning cans and bottles

D.   Dogs: They’re cute, but not for me right now. My heart belongs to this guy!

IMG_0039

E.  Essential start to your day: My morning mug-o-joe

F.  Favorite color: Purple

G.  Gold or silver: Silver, without a doubt

H.  Height: 5’6 3/4 ” though I always say 5’7” (<—exactly the same as Julie!) Smile

I.   Instruments you play: I played clarinet in 5th grade but hated practicing, so I quit.

J.   Job title: 5th Grade Teacher

K.  Kids: None yet, but definitely in the future!

L.  Live: Just outside of Albany, New York

M. Mom’s name: Pat

IMG_6924

N.  Nicknames: Cuppy (I couldn’t pronounce “Courtney” when I was younger and thus called myself “Cuppy”) Coco, Coop, Cupster, Coopinator…yeah, I’m fun Smile

O.  Overnight hospital stays: Luckily, none!

P.  Pet peeve: Not returning phone calls.

Q.  Quote from a movie: “Kinda hot in these rhinos…” (Ace Ventura, Pet Detective)

R.  Righty or Lefty: Righty.

S.   Siblings: One younger brother, Dan

IMG_2092

T.   Time you wake up: Anywhere between 5:15 – 6:00 a.m. on weekdays (depending on if I workout in the AM) and it’s all over the place on weekends.

U.   Underwear: Labeled with everyday of the week…you know I’m sportin’ my “Wednesdays” right now! Winking smile

V.    Vegetables you dislike: Fennel. Eeeeeew…

W.   What makes you run late: My addiction to social media!

X.    X-rays you’ve had: A few. I know I just got some on my teeth though, since I have the bill for them sitting on my desk…

Y.    Yummy food you make: Cupcakes, Cookies, Overnight French Toast

Z.     Zoo animal favorite: I’ve only been to a zoo once, and I’ll have to say chimpanzees. I find them to be incredibly intriguing, and they totally make me laugh! Smile

************

Now it’s YOUR turn! In honor of the ABC’s, I’ll ask those for my own initials. Winking smile

C. What chores do you hate to do?

I hate moving the clothes from the washing machine to the dryer. I think it’s just a pain in the neck and the machines should learn how to do it themselves!

My job title is Marketing Manager/Asst.to the President/Office Manager/Sales and Branding Consultant. You name it, I do it.

I’m 5’8″, I think? I don’t even know the last time I checked, but I’m sure I haven’t grown in the past few years.

What a fun post! I might put it on my blog soon.
