Accent: I suppose one could say that my accent is a northern New Jersey accent... I don't think that I speak with the typical "New Joisey" accent that some people are fond of poking fun of! I wish that I spoke with a British accent, but since my parents are American and we only lived there for the first three months of my life, it was never a likely possibility!
Bible book I like best: I think that I
would have to say the book of Esther. We recently watched dvd that told
the story of Esther and I liked it so much!!
Chore I Don't Care For: I
really don't have a particular chore that I don't like doing... when I
was younger, I couldn't stand cleaning the toilet. As I got older, I
really disliked washing dishes in a dishpan that had little bits of food
in the water. Now, my difficulty is getting myself started with the
housework... once I begin, I am good to go!
Dog or Cat: I
love kitty cats! The cat that I loved the most was a big grey tom cat
named Thomas... after naughty Tom Kitten in Beatrix Potter books. He was
such a sweet cat and he loved to be held and cuddled. Unfortunately,
Hubby isn't fond of animals, so I don't think we'll have one anytime
Essential Electronics: I suppose that I like my
laptop the best... Since it belongs to the school that I teach in
though, I will have to turn it in by the end of May. Yes, I have only
twenty more days left in my teaching career! I will officially be a
homemaker as of June 1st!!
Favorite Cologne(s): I
recently bought a bottle of Burberry London (with a gift card)and have
been enjoying it very much. It combines roses and jasmine which are two
of my very favorite scents! I only sprits on a little though, because it
can be quite potent!
Gold or Silver: I like white gold
the best. My engagement ring and wedding band are made of white gold and
I also have a little white gold cross and chain and white gold
earrings. I like it better then silver which tarnishes easily.
Handbag I carry most often:
I really like pocketbooks! The one that I have been using the most
lately is a brown Longchamps bag that I bought with my birthday money. I
have always purchased black ones, but felt that black was too "heavy"
for Spring and Summer. I have been happy with this one so far!
Insomnia: Thankfully, I don't suffer from Insomnia... I am sure that I will soon suffer from Infant Related Insomnia soon though;)
Job Title: Currently- Wife, Mama, and Teacher
As of June 1st- Wife and Mama
Kids: One little baby on the way!
Living arrangements: A lovely apartment that we feel very cozy in... with the exception of the leaky dining room!!
Most admirable trait: The ability not to hold onto anger for long.
Naughtiest childhood behaviour: Probably taking things that didn't belong to me... at one point I was a real Miss Sticky Fingers!
Overnight hospital stays: None
that I can remember. I know that I was in the hospital for a week when I
was an infant and then again when I was a toddler. I will have to stay
overnight when the baby comes though... I am a bit nervous about that!
Being alone. I didn't like when John had to go one two week-long
business trips. I had never been alone in a house or apartment overnight
before (I grew up in a large family and lived there until I was
married) and I didn't like it one bit!! Every noise scared me!
Religion: Orthodox Christian
Siblings: Three younger sisters (Anna-22, Katharine-18, and Juliana-17) and one younger brother (Nicolas-10).
Time I wake up: I wake up at 6:30 am and hit the snooze button until 6:48 am.
Unusual talent or skill: I
can wiggle my ears and I can also raise one eyebrow which can convey
surprise or amazement (both positive and negative)... a real help in
being a teacher!
Vegetable I refuse to eat: I love all vegetables... I don't like mangos though!
Worst habit: It's a toss-up between cracking my knuckles and biting my nails.
one that was not dental. It was on my ankle which was puffy and swollen
because I slipped and fell on some ice. Fortunately, nothing was
Yummy stuff I cook: Shepherd's Pie, Brownies, and Chocolate Chip cookies.
Zoo animal I like most: Giraffes
