Just a Little Fun

I have decided to have a little fun today. Completely changing my life has proven to be serious business so I am going to lighten it up a little bit. My friend Hanlie over at Fertile Healthy posted this and I am going to play along.

A - Age: 38

B – Bed size: King

C - Chores you hate: Cleaning the windows on my 3 season room

D - Dessert you love: Portillo's chocolate cake

E - Essential start your day item: Skin brushing

F - Favourite actor(s): Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino

G - Gold or Silver: Gold

H - Height: 5 ft 7 inches

I - Instruments you play: I played the viola in middle school. Nothing now.

J - Job title: Mommy, ma, mom

K - Kids: 5 boys - 15, 14, 10, 7, 6

L - I live in a 4 bedroom home in the suburbs of Chicago with my hubby, kids and 2 dogs (the only other girls in the house), and a toad (she could be a girl too now that I think about it).

M - My name is: Michelle

N - Nicknames: See J above

O - Overnight hospital stay: The beginning of my quest for vibrant health about 3 years ago. Went into the emergency room and left 3 days and a gazillion tests later. No diagnosis, I was on my own. Also all 5 of my childbirths.

P - Pet Peeve: When people are late

Q - Favourite quote: Today is the beginning of a new day. I can waste it...or use it for good. But what I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it. Leaving in it's place something that I have traded for it. I want it to be gain and not loss, good and not evil. Success and not failure in order that I not regret the price I have paid for it. I will give 100% of myself just for today. For you never fail until you stop trying. I will be the kind of person I have always wanted to be. I have been given this day to use as I will.

R - Right or left handed: Right

S - Siblings: None

T - Time you woke up today: 6:00am

U - Unique habit: I can crack just about every knuckle on my body. All joints in all fingers and toes, wrists, elbows, shoulders, neck, back, knees and ankles. I know it's kind of gross.

V - Vegetable you hate: Fava beans

W - Wishing for: Vibrant health!

X - X-rays you’ve had: Teeth, chest, ankle

Y - Yummy food you make: I make a mean pasta and meatballs from an old Italian recipe that simmer all day on the stove.

Z - Zodiac Sign: Leo

Now you know my ABC’s … I would love to hear yours!

That Italian meatball dish sounds divine!

It's great to get to know you. I will have to complete this A-Z of me one day soon. I also feel you on appreciating and welcoming cravings during the feast because I know I won't act on them and I know I will have the clarity to get to the roots of it :)
