alphabet survey.

I saw this survey over at Cats&Cardigans. I modified a few questions because that's information I don't wish to share on the internet. And, I added a T because there was one missing, but it's the general idea of the original survey. I thought it would be fun to post. :)

A. Aspiration: To become a nurse and part-time photographer.
B. Bed size: Twin. I love my bed. It's so comfortable! :)
C. Chore that you hate: Cleaning the bathroom. Worst chore ever!
D. Dogs: Yes! I love my puppy!
E. Essential start to your day: Getting at least an extra five minutes of sleep after the alarm goes off. I cherish sleep! :p
F. Favorite color: Yellow. It's just so happy!
G. Gold or Silver: Silver.
H. Height: 5' 4"
I. Instruments you play: None. I used to play piano, but I've since lost it.
J. Job title: Student. haha.
K. Kids: In the future... I love them! :)
L. Love: I've been on a chevron pattern and navy blue kick. Loving these lately!
M. Mother’s name: Mom! Can't really share her real name... :)
N. Nicknames: Pumpkin (that's my parents' nickname for me), Shirley (joke between friends)
O. Overnight hospital stays: Never, thank goodness!
P. Pet peeves: People who are disrespectful. Slow-walkers... I walk fast and it drives me crazy when I'm stuck behind slow-walkers. haha.
Q. Quote from a movie: "I meant what I said, and I said what I meant." "An elephant's faithful one hundred percent." "That's my code, my motto."  ------- ... One of my favorite movies ever (Horton Hears a Who)! :)
R. Right or left handed: Righty.
S. Siblings: One brother!
T. Tea?: I like iced tea!
U. Underwear: Yes, I wear it all the time. lol.
V. Vegetable you hate: Spinach. Ick!
W. What makes you run late: Saving things for the last minute and then running around like a chicken without a head, scrambling out the door.
.X. X-Rays you’ve had: One on my chin, one on my stomach, and one on my chest.
Y. Yummy food that you make: Grilled cheese, although I still think my mom makes it better than me!
Z. Zoo animal: Giraffes. They are the cutest! 

Just something fun. I have some new crafty stuff to share, but I need to set aside time to type something up. 
Enjoy your week!

love & other hugs.

Hey y'all! I cannot believe we're nine days into September and I've yet to post! Life has just caught up with me and I have less and less time for the fun stuff. *sigh* But, I'm making an effort to incorporate as much work and fun into my schedule as possible! So...

I'm here to share a little layout that I completed today using Studio Calico's Glee Club. I'm loving the look of this kit. Very fun and fall-ish... perfect for a September look!

I just received this kit this afternoon and I'm so happy I was able to dig in right away! It is just a perfect kit and I have so many ideas brewing in my head. The main kit is still available as well as three add-ons... so I'd pop over there and pick some things up because this kit is awesome! 

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! Enjoy your Friday!
