Okay, so I wasn’t tagged to join the “Old School Blogging – Alphabet Soup” prompt that seems to have made its way around the blogging scene. But that’s okay. Years of running track make me hard to catch so I’m hardly ever tagged to be “it”. I’ll do you all a favor and just tag myself!
B. Best Friend?
Blessed with several great friends, but Hubs & Little One are my two besties!
C. Cake or pie?
Cookies! Soft baked!
D. Day of choice?
I feel like I’m suppose to say “Sunday”. Seeing as Sunday is too close to Monday and Monday’s make me depressed I’ll have to say Friday or any day I don’t have to go into the office.
E. Essential Item?
Lip balm. Bleeding, cracked lips don’t go with any outfit. Ever! Oh yeah, and my specs. My glasses save my life…and essentially yours if you so happen to be on the road at the same time as me when the sun goes down. Accident waiting to happen.
F. Favorite color?
Green, turquoise, or any color on the green/turquoise spectrum.
G. Gummy bears or worms?
Either. Who’s treating?
Born and raised in the City on the Bay! I’m a San Francisco treat! (Oh yeah, I currently live in Richmond, VA…)
I. Favorite Indulgence?
J. January or July?
July – it’s my birth month!
L. Life isn’t complete without?
Prayer, Faith, Family, Books, Pen and Paper, and Lip Balm. Gotta have the lip balm.
M. Marriage date?
Thursday, December 11th, 2008
N. Number of brothers/sisters?
My mother’s only child – no syndrome. My father’s eldest child which makes me the big sister to a 17 year-old sister and an almost 21 year-old brother.
O. Oranges or Apples.
Well apples got us in a bit of trouble so I think I’ll stick with oranges for now.
Birds are treacherous, dangerous, flying diseases who are capable of actually using your head, car, or jacket as a toilet. Disrespectful! Not to mention the trifling suckas scarred me for life when a seagull at the San Francisco zoo stole a hot dog out my then 5 year-old hands and commenced to squawking his friends over for a celebratory hot dog buffet at my expense! But I digress. Public restrooms also give me the heebie-jeebies.
Oh, I have plenty. Hence the name BeQuoted. A few of my favorites:
“It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.” – Aristotle
R. Reasons to smile?
It’s more attractive than frowning. Some smile because they’re happy. I smile because it makes me look good. Or at least better than I do with a sour face.
S. Season of choice?
Summer & Fall. Summer for the fun and Fall for the boots and blazers. Can fashion get any better than Fall fashion? Methinks not.

Britton of My Big, Beautiful, Life
Gillian of Fitness Buster
Catherine of Dear Vixen
Sherelle of Caramel Conversations
Kita of Say What You Wanna
Yes. I know I chose 6 lovelies instead of 5.
The other ladies I thought to tag have already been tagged! I welcome any of you to get in on the old school blogging. Just copy and paste the questions. Replace my answers with your own unless of course you too have a phobia of birds and public restrooms.
U. Unknown fact about me?
Collard greens, butternut squash, and artichoke. Yes, yes, and yes.
W. Worst habit?
Persistently getting less than 6 hours of sleep and turning off my alarm clock while silently chanting that I will get up in 5 minutes. I guess I should also mention that rushing is also a very bad habit of mine. Believe it or not I do actually make it to my destination on time. Usually. Pray for me ya’ll.
X. Xray or Ultrasound?
Clearly we were running out of questions at this point. ”Xray or ultrasound?” Say what?
Y. Your favorite food?
Mexican food. I could literally eat authentic Mexican food every day of my life. Jamaican and Italian food tied for a close second.
Z. Zodiac sign?
I am a Lioness. I suppose we’re better known as Leo’s. Don’t go judging me. Everyone knows someone who hates a Leo. Oy vey.
