To help you pass the time...

Since I'm too busy making things happen today to do an actual blog post (and I'm an idiot and forgot to put my memory card back in my camera yesterday and I haven't yet figured out how to get my pictures off the internal memory of my camera) this little bloggy-blog survey that I stole from The Sweet Life will have to do:

A. Age: 25, it just happened and saying that I'm in my mid-20's versus my early-20's is not something I've accepted yet

B. Bed size: Queen. I would like a King but for whatever reason that hasn't been made a top priority yet. Something about having just bought new bedroom furniture (lame).

C. Chore you hate: Since I have been delegated the official chore person in our house, I am pretty used to doing them all. But for whatever reason I can't stand putting up laundry, which is really counter-productive to doing the laundry because I just leave it on the couch and then our cats (who shed a RIDICULOUS amount) cover them in hair and I have to wash them again (but don't, who am I kidding? that would take WAY too much work)

D. Dogs: I love them. LOVE them. And if I didn't think our precious little kitties would rip a puppy's face off, I would so get one. 

E. Essential start to your day: I'm a little neurotic about how my mornings go... I have to work out first, followed by a cup of coffee. Otherwise my day is thrown all out of whack and I am a mess.

F. Favorite color: Blue, I think. And green. And yellow. 

G. Gold or silver: This is a tough one. I think white gold. Which conveniently looks just like silver but sounds way better.

H. Height: 5'4"... However in an effort to win the argument about who was taller - my mom or me - I put 5'5" on my license one year. Take that.

I. Instruments you play: Zero. I played flute in middle school and high school and dabbled in guitar for a while, but right now the only music I play is on my iPod or radio. 

J. Job title: Trademark Paralegal

K. Kids: No, thank you. We are not ready.

L. Live: H-Town. (The "H" stands for HOT, HUMID, and HOUSTON)

M. Mom’s name: Linda Sue. Though she'd kill me if she found out I included the "Sue" part.  

N. Nicknames: My closest friends call me Rache not Rachael and my bestest friend has gone through a few nicknames, including but not limited to Arby (for my pre-married initials RB)

O. Overnight hospital stays: Only for that boy that I am married to that loves to get in trouble and end up in the hospital. The first night I met my in-laws was when I had to call them to tell them that he got the bejeesus beat out of him and could they please drive to San Marcos because he was not doing so well. Oh and Hi, I'm dating your son.

P. Pet peeve: Ehh I have a few. But I REALLY can't stand when people drive slowly in the fast lane and won't get over into the slower lanes no matter how many people are passing them. And I can't stand when people don't wave in thanks for letting them over and such. I am a courteous driver, you should be too.

Q. Quote from a movie: I love movies. Lately when Sean or I point out something obvious one of us will say "I KNOW THAT FAGGLE"... Superbad, anyone?

R. Right or left handed: Right

S. Siblings: I have 3

T. Time you wake up: During the week, usually 5. On the weekends, Louie will be pouncing on my face around 6. Never Sean's. Only mine.

U. Underwear: Well this is an awkward question. 

V. Vegetables you dislike: The only 2 things that I can think of currently that I dislike are olives and coconut. Blech.

W. What makes you run late: Running longer than I should, waking up late and working out anyway, trying to do too much before I leave for work, traffic... Despite how that list sounds though, I'm rarely late. I can't stand to be late.

X. X-Rays you’ve had: You are reading about the girl that (knock on wood) has never broken, fractured, or strained anything. I am the clumsiest careful person you'll ever meet. Bruises and falling down/running into things are regular, nothing else is. 

Y. Yummy food you make: Right now, roasted anykindofvegetable, specifically broccoli and zucchini. YUM.

Z. Zoo – favorite animal: I LOVE to watch the elephants dance. And I also like giraffes, sea lions, 
koalas, monkeys... Um... I love the zoo!

YOUR TURN! You answer one!


  1. I like the new header. That's funny about meeting the inlaws and that squash and zuchninni looks yum!

  2. Ha ha!
    B - We got a king size bed FINALLY after hubs had H1N1. I refused to get back in that bed after he contaminated it for a week. (I slept in another bed that week.)
    P - really a traffic pet peeve in Houston? Really? Aren't all Houston drivers fabulous? I'm being sarcastic obviously. I hate people that refuse to use turn signals... damn you Mercedes, I know that turn signal works (that's totally what I say on a daily basis)

    And I'm glad I'm not the only one that is a little camera stupid.

  3. I love you and your wittiness!!

    To get the pics off, you have to plug in your camera to your computer, via the cord the camera came with.. I believe you have to turn the camera on as well in order for the pics to show up.

    I love how you make the "white gold" sound so much more fabulous than just silver... Agreed!

    That pic of Sean is hilarious!!!

  4. I agree with your pet peeve. esp during rush hour people are lined up to get on I-10. some cars think they're smart to go toward the front and wedge themselves in between cars. if I was the one they were cutting I wouldn't let them through at all.

  5. E-essential start to the day-just like you..grab a quick snack and hit the gym by 5 in the morning.
    Job Titile-3rd grade teacher, teaching summer school right now and ready for it to be over!!

    Very cute blog :)

  6. hooray for 5'4" 25 year olds!! We should start a club :)
