A - Z

This idea comes from my pal, Amber at A Little Pink in the Cornfields who is coming to hang out with me in a few weeks for my early birthday weekend!

A. Age: I haven’t decided what age I am going to be this year, but my birthday is coming up – October 13th!

B. Bed Size: Queen

C. Chore that you hate Housework in general – that is what cleaning people are for—and husbands.

D. Dogs: My Pug, Noodles who is my best friend. I wish I could have a second dog as well, but so far my husband has vetoed that idea. So far. I never give up!

E. Essential start to your day: Coffee and Kare 11 Sunrise on the couch—and if I am really motivated, I will watch it while doing the elliptical.

F. Favorite Color: I go back and forth between purple and yellow. But right now, probably yellow.

G. Gold or Silver: Platinum

H. Height: 5’3” on a good day but in reality just a tad under

I. Instruments you play: Sadly, none

J. Job Title: Receptionist extraordinaire

K. Kids: No, thanks – all my “kids” have 4 legs

L. Live: Twin Cities of Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area

M. Mother’s Name: Glenda Jean

N. Nicknames: Les, Lester, Pookie, Ladybug, Junebug

O. Overnight hospital stays: I had major surgery in 2003 and was in the hospital for 3 days.

P. Pet peeve: Negative, complaining people, people who don’t use their turn signals or know how to zipper merge and people who are rude in general and also in traffic. People who put an “e” on the end of my name even if they have known me for DECADES.

Q. Quote from a movie: It’s A Desperately Important Scarf – from “Confessions of a Shopaholic”

R. Right or left handed: Right

S. Siblings: One brother who lives in New Zealand and a sister who died as a baby

T. Time you wake up: 5:30 a.m.

U. Underwear: I like boy shorts

V. Vegetable you hate: Green beans, broccoli, lettuce on sandwiches, brussel sprouts – for a vegetarian, there are a lot of veggies I don’t like!

W. What makes you run late: Pets, traffic, weather, not allowing myself enough time

X. X-Rays you’ve had: teeth, broken leg, mammogram

Y. Yummy food that you make: I make a really delicious dip known as crack dip. You can get the recipe here.

Z. Zoo Animal: Baby elephants, big cats, zebras.

P.S.  I also did this in March - let's see how well my answers match up!!

Hi Lesli,

I just discovered your blog and I love it! I just read your 100 things about me and I am slightly unnerved by how much we have in common - I think you may be my long lost twin!

Just to name a few - my favorite number is 13, pugs are my favorite dog, I hate goat cheese too (so glad I'm not the only one!), I love Chipotle, Hello Kitty....I could keep going! Scary!! :D

Oh and the last thing - I'm also a Lesley :) So excited to add you to my blog roll. And just curious, what do you use on your hair? It's gorge!

Winding Mossy Ways -

Thanks for your comment--it was the nicest one I have ever received, I think!! I use a lot of Sebastian products on my hair. I look forward to getting to know you better! I love that we have so much in common.

Angie, absolutely! 4-legged children. :-)

Amber, you have to try my dip!
