The ABC’s of ME!
Addictions: Right now, itz sparkly nails. I’ve totally been digging the ring finger party nail, but last weekend I painted all my nails sparkly… plus the party nail.
Bed size: Queen! Though I do love having my space and then some in King beds when we got out of town.
Chore you hate: Emptying the dishwasher. UGH! Jonny does this one. Always.
Dogs or cats: Dogs all the way. Especially my little cutie, Zoey.
Essential start of your day: My morning workout. Lately, I’ve totally been rocking the best body bootcamp workouts. The moves are very different than just regular strength training. They’re hard and work me good! If you need a new workout routine, you’ve gotta get in on the next session!
Favorite color: Pink!
Gold or silver: Silver, but I do have a few gold accessories.
Height: 5’3″ – Yup, I’m a shorty!
Instruments you play (or have played): When I was ten, I took guitar lessons because my dad plays and I wanted to be like him. I didn’t like practicing though (nor was I very talented), so it didn’t last long. Check me out in my prime awkward years wearing a totally awesome outfit from my dear grandma.
Jobs titles you’ve had: Elementary teacher (1st grade my first year, 3rd grade the past four years, and moving up to 4th grade next year!). I’m also a soccer coach to six grade girls. In college, I worked at the rec center. I’ve also been a waitress and bartender. I like being around people, what can I say?
Kids: I’ve got 19 kiddos for about 8 hours a day five days a week right now! Someday, we’ll have our own, too.
Live: Born and raised in St. Louis. Love this city. Go Cardinals!
Mom’s name: Susan – my amazing momma. The woman who does it all.
Nickname: Linz (duuuuh). Linzaloo.
Overnight hospital stays: Never.
Pet peeve: Gross manners. Chewing/talking with your mouth full. Just stop.
Quote from a movie: Ehhh I don’t really watch a lot of movies.
Right or left-handed: Lefty! Jonny was a baseball stud growing up and when he found out I was left-handed he asked me to marry him. Ok, not really, but I’m pretty sure that influenced his decision as he’s dreaming of little left-handed baseball all stars.
Plus, a special shout out to Stephanie who turns the big 30 + 1 today! She’s an amazing newborn photographer (and sister, wife, momma, the list goes on and on), so if you want to want to oooh and aaah at the most adorable photos, check her out on Facebook! (With over 10,000 fans, she knows what she’s doing!) Happy birthday, Seester! I love you.
Time you wake up: 5:00. Wake up and workout, baby! (Tips for how to do so HERE.)
Underwear: I don’t know how to appropriately answer this question, so I won’t.
Vegetables you dislike: None! I love veggies and veggies love me!
What makes you run late: Me, myself, and I? I take a loooong time to get ready. I’m sorry, but I do. Itz not that I’m high maintenance (because I’m not), I just like to take my sweet time. I diddle daddle. I’m always late. Jonny is always early. We work out.
X-rays you’ve had done: My pinky (thanks to my older bro for breaking that one during basketball when I was 5) and my pointer finger (got smashed between scooters during P.E. in fifth grade). Both broken. Luckily, that’s it!
Yummy food you make: Ice cream. Shoot, I don’t make that. How about anything with avocado like this Mexican Omelette?
Zoo animal: Lions. Tigers. And [Polar] Bears (oh my!).
Itz YOUR turn! Answer the letters of your initials.
