getting to know you

{I saw this little getting to know you piece on Our Transatlantic Love and thought to myself, ooh, what a nice way to ease back into blogging as I ease back into life after la grippe. Indulge me please}

Age: thirty-something.
Bedsize: queen.
Chores that you hate: making the bed (but I hate not having the bed made more, so I suffer through).
Dogs: Fifty (and in case you are new here, no, I do not have 50 dogs, I have one, named Fifty, but he kinda smells like I have 50 dogs).
Essential start to your day: it used to be coffee, coffee, and more coffee, but now that I've been cutting that out of my life, it's hot water & lemon (Isn't that the saddest thing you've ever heard? But, my skin does look all glowy).
Favorite color: apple green .
Gold or Silver:  I love gold but it looks horrendous with my skin tone, but rose gold doesn't, so rose gold.
Height: taller than 5'7'' but not quite 5'8''.
Instruments you play: the radio, but I do regret quitting the piano. I really, really do.
Job title: Well The Husband refers to me as, the chef, but I know that he is actually trying to say, the chief, so I guess that makes me, the boss.
Kids: see Dogs above.
Live: The L.P.V. (insert gang sign here).
Mother's Name: The one we call Eilo (that's not her real name, but it's what I call her).
Nicknames: Skippy.
Overnight hospital stays: yes.
Pet peeves:  Rude people.
Quote from a movie or tv show: Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it - Ferris Bueller.
Right or Lefty:  Righty.
Siblings: yes.
Time you wake up: early (have you seen what time my blog posts?)
Underwear: usually, yes. 
Vegetable you hate: cooked carrots. I love them raw but once they are cooked, I'm like, ugh.
What makes you run late: I don't do late.
X-Rays You've Had: too many to count.
Yummy food you make: since everything I make is yummy (tis true), I'll just say what I made last night and be done with it, spinach risotto, and it was scrumptious.
Zoo Animal: giraffes. 

ta da



  1. Hahaha, *insert gang sign here*
    Does the LPV know you're throwing their signs all over the internet?
    And you DO wake up early. I notice these things in emails. Because I'm weird.
    Ferris Bueller is the best. Have you seen the new commercial by honda that's basically a spoof of the movie? Pretty sweet. Although... it could be old for all I know. Being in Europe hasn't exactly kept me up to date on commercials. lol

  2. You are tall...I am so jealous!!!!!!!
    What fun did enjoy it and it fills out the image I hold of you!!!

  3. Now that you told me I should look at time of your blog posts... I'm shocked! And jealous. I wanna wake up this early, too. When do you go to bed? O.o
    "I don't do late." <-- Favourite. Absolute.

  4. Instruments you play: The radio. Haha!
    We need to be friends

  5. Sara, so glad you are back writing. I miss your blogs. Stay well. Love, Aunt Kathy

  6. Cooked carrots are the worst..but love 'em when raw. Do you hate cooked peas? I do, but then again, love those raw peas. Glad you're up and about again and feeling better.

  7. How do you exist without coffee? I don't get it!

  8. Haha, funny read. I agree on the carrots!! Hope you are all well from la grippe now <3

  9. Glad you are feeling better! Gecmis olsun! Seems like the Turkish "gripe" is making the rounds over here now. Is it spring yet? =)

  10. I want to be part of your gang. We'll throw cooked carrots at people.

  11. Another carrot hater here. This was fun to read, and might give me an idea for my stoopid blog seeing as I am

  12. I hate making the bed too but the boyfriend hates an unmade bed so I usually make it shortly before he comes home from work. Ha!

  13. How about sharing that risotto recipe? Sounds yummy. Did not realize that being hours away from Starbucks had caused you to completely give up coffee - horrors! How about tea?

  14. Ahhh, this is cute! Your answers are funny :)

  15. Giraffes are my favorite too. and I'm also almost 5'8". Loved this "get to you know you" post. and so happy you're feeling better :)

  16. Funny post. Am in total agreement on the carrots (as are many others...you must attract cooked-carrot haters) and also agree with Mem on the cooked peas. My the husband doesn't understand. I have always noticed your early posting as I wake up early too and look at Twitter. The early bird catches the worm :-)

  17. hello! thanks so much for stopping by my blog. it was pretty entertaining learning about "the mistral." i didn't know france got that windy :)

    your blog is so intriguing, especially because i fell in love with a swiss man and plan to move there one day. (je parles francais un petit peu, mais mon petit ami parle suisse-allemagne! ugh!) it's great getting to learn about your experience so i can prepare myself for mine.


  18. Sometimes I really love short quick blog posts! Love this one :) I may steal your idea on this one.

  19. Glad to see that you are feeling well enough to blog again. Nice to learn a few more details about you and your life.

  20. Wow!
    Great post my Lady! We have many many things in common! And you are so funny ... I also HATE making the bed, I don't know why but I hate do this!
    We really have many things in common ...
    Excellent post ...
    I'm drinking a big american coffee mug!
    Bisous, Babi

  21. Oh the wisdom of Ferris Bueller. One time, I made it a point to memorize that ridiculous line… "My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid whose going with the girl who saw Ferris pass out at 31 Flavors last night… I guess it's pretty serious" and (clearly) never forgot it.

    Totally may copy cat this.

  22. um, the soft spot in my heart for you grew when i learned you were my height. i love tall people ;)i don't do late either! and i hate lemon but, like your bed-making, i might have to suffer through for the sake of some glowy skin because glowy skin sounds awesome!!

  23. hot water and lemon for glowy skin?? sounds rough to give up coffee but glowing skin would be nice!!

  24. i'm kind of the boss too. it's pretty awesome. this was very fun to read. i got a pedicure today, and we started talking about age, one of the nail techs was like, "i'm SO OLD." she was in her late 20s. i said, "i'm 33!" and they all looked freaked out, like people over 30 should be shot or something...

  25. love learning all these things! ......and skippy, huh? ;-)

    p.s. you girls look like you had a fab getaway - aix does mark the spot!

  26. Hot water and lemon? Are you sure you're "the chef?" LOL JK

  27. Phasing out coffee!!! Are you kidding me! That's a no way Jose for me (as a matter of fact I am sipping on my third cup while writing this). I'm glad about the underwear part, good job and funny how my husband calls me the boss, too. Gotta love it.
    I think I might steal this idea for a post. Would that be ok with you?

  28. we have so much in common, it's not even funny. :)
