26 Things Thursday....

 Haven't posted in a while, but thanks to LB at Muddy Runner thought I'd jump on this band wagon:

Age: 44 but creeping up on 45 quickly
Bed size: We have a California King- I do not like to touch while sleeping and this bed is perfect for having your own space
Chore you hate: Ummm, sorry, there is not a chore I LIKE
Dogs: Love dogs, sadly our black lab was put down two years ago because of cancer. He was with us for 12 years - best dog ever
Essential start to your day: Coffee, coffee and more coffee
Favorite color: Pink - I am a girlie girl
Gold or Silver: Silver
Height: 5-foot-5
Instruments you play: None - wish I could play something, just don't have the patience to learn
Job title: Mom, Wife, Friend, Aunt, Sister - these are my favorites
Kids: Trevor and Emma
Live: Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif.
Nicknames: I'm sure I have a few I'm not aware of - my family calls me Shelly, my Mom calls me Shella Bella
Overnight hospital stays: Just for the birth of my children
Pet peeve: Too many to list - not returning shopping carts but leaving them in the parking spot is number one, chewing with your mouth open probably number 2
Quote from a movie: Not a movie quoter - I can't remember what happened two minutes ago let alone quotes from a movie
Right- or left-handed: Right
Siblings: One brother, three step sisters, two step brothers
Time you wake up: 6:00 am, not very happily
Underwear: Every day
Vegetables you dislike: Not big on veggies I pretty much tolerate them
What makes you run late: My husband - I hate being late, he seems to hate being on time
X-Rays you’ve had: Other then teeth, a sonogram when pregnant - oh, just remembered an ankle
Yummy food you make: Family favorite is my homemade chicken taquitos
Zoo favorite animal: Panda bears - but I'm more a sea lover, dolphins are my all time fav

So there you go.... 


  1. Cool! Glad to see you took the plunge. Pretty fun, huh?

    I pictured you as tall as me, not sure why. Not that 5-5 is short but I pictured you as closer to six feet :/

  2. Nice to learn a little more about you! You're a hair taller than me, I'm a little above 5'4".
