ABC's of Brian and Me

I've recently read a few blogs that have done this, so I thought I'd give it a go, too.. 

A - Age : 29 --I'm 2 months away from 30 -yikes!  Where did my 20's go?  Brian's answer:  "34."
B - Bed size:  Queen - hopefully someday we'll upgrade to a king, but Brian built our bed before we even met.  I love that I have such a handy man.   We're in the process of re-doing our bedroom, so excuse the 2 lamps and lack of window treatments and pitiful pillows.  I'll post a before and after once it's all done. 

C - Chore you dislike:  vacuuming - I don't really like loud noises, so it annoys me. --Brian's answer:   "Vacuuming (I was shocked we had the same answer) because it's boring."
D - Dogs:  Peyton and Charlie -- my favorite picture of Peyt

E - Essential start to your day:  Adam and Julia's green smoothie.  I've been addicted for a couple of weeks now.  Brian's answer:  "Coffee!  It wakes me up and I like the warmth." 
F - Favorite color:  Pink!!!!  Brian's answer:  "Blue."

G - Gold or Silver:  Silver usually, but I do like to wear both.  Brian's answer:  "Silver, I guess."
H- Height:  5'6"  Brian's answer:  5'9-10"
I - Instruments you play - None.  I played flute for less than 2 weeks in the 6th grade and then quit.  Brian's answer:  "I was forced to take piano lessons for 2 years when I was younger and did not like it at all.  I played trumpet for a few years and then took guitar lessons out of college.  But, I would really say I can't play anything."
J - Job title - Registered Nurse.  Brian's answer:  "Computer Engineer."
K - Kids  - None, yet.  But hopefully we'll have biological kids, adopted kids, foster kids - we want a bunch!  Brian's answer:  "I thought we agreed on 3."
L - Live - The Bluegrass State - Kentucky.  Never in a million years did I ever think I would live in or even like this state, but I love it!  I love the milder winters and the hot summers.  It has beautiful blue/green grass, rolling hills, mountains in the east, and lots of lakes.  I also love my church and the people!  I am a southern girl at heart.  The next state I want to live in is North Carolina.  --I asked Brian what state he would like to live in next:  "Colorado, Texas, or North Carolina."

M - My mom's name:  Sally.  Love her.  Brian's answer:  "Mary."  Also love her.
N - Nickname:  Ash, Ashes, Ashley Love.  Brian's answer:  "Crawdad.  I know, it's lame."
O - Overnight stay in hospital:  Thankfully, no.  Brian's answer:  "No.  I've never even been in the ER."
P - Pet peeves:  Texting while driving.  Brian's answer:  "Someone not putting stuff in the trashcan, just laying it beside the trashcan."  (I think he was talking about me.) 
Q - Quotes from movies:  I can't really think of anything, so I'll list one of my favorite verses.  Ephesians 2:10 "For we are God’s craftsmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."  Brian's answer:  "I can't think of anything."  So I asked him is favorite bible verse.  Philippians 4:6-8  "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." 
R - Right/Lefty:  Righty.  Brian: Righty.
S - Siblings:  1 brother - Clint.  Brian:  Chris and Melissa.

T - Time you wake up:  6:15 am.  Brian:  6:15
U - Underwear:  Whatever I like that's on-sale.  Brian's answer: "What?"
V - Veggies you dislike:  My answer used to be all veggies, but I have completely changed and like all veggies now, at least I can't think of any that I don't like.  Brian's answer:  "Squash.  Wait, Is that a veggie or a fruit?"
W - What makes you run late:  I can't stand to be late, so I'm usually not.  Brian's answer:  "I don't run late."
X- Xrays you've had:  Ankle bone.  Brian's answer:  "Knee."
Y- Yummy food you make:  I think I'm a pretty good cook, so I think it's all yummy.  Brian's answer:  "I'm a good griller.  Steaks and Porkchops."                        
I didn't cook either of these dishes, but I want to try and re-create them sometime.  This was one of our favorite meals in Italy.

Z- Zoo animal:  Bears, Tigers, and Lions!  Brian's answer:  "Gotta be the monkeys."
