Someday in the near future I will start teaching Kirsten her ABC's. It'll be so fun when she can actually say them and start learning letters! For now. . . I think I'll just do this fun ABC tag. :)

A is for age: 26

B is for burger of choice: The Three-Cheese Burger from Fuddruckers!

I also love In-n-Out of course! It's sad that they have NEITHER of these burger places in the state of Washington!

C is for the car I drive: Well, can I write about the car I used to drive instead? It's so much more fun! My first car that I bought when I was 20 was a gorgeous red 1994 Toyota Celica. Look at this beauty! It was my pride and joy!

Now that Kirsten is my pride and joy, I had to trade my car in (sniff, sniff) for a 1999 Plymouth Grand Voyager Minivan. No picture necessary.

D is for your dog's name: I have no dog right now, but someday I would LOVE to have a dog that looks like this:

Or like this:

E is for essential item you use every day: Chapstick! I carry them with me in my pockets, purses, diaper bags, everywhere!

F is for favorite TV show at the moment: So You Think You Can Dance! My second favorite right now is Project Runway.

G is for favorite game: I love lots of games, but number 1 would have to go to Settlers of Catan.

H is for home state: California. I'll always be a California girl!

I is for instruments you play: Harp and piano

J is for favorite juice: I mostly don't like juice. Does lemonade count?

K is for whose bum you'd like to kick: I wish I had a funny answer for this, but I honestly can't think of anybody !

L is for last restaurant at which you ate: Claim Jumper

M is for your favorite Muppet: I love Kermit and his cute little nephew

N is for number of piercings: 2 in each ear, although I only wear one earring in each ear now

O is for overnight hospital stays: Just 1, when I had Kirsten and had to stay 3 nights!

P is for people you were with today: So far just my baby Kirsten, but I'll see some friends later at the park

Q is for what you do with your quiet time: Read, blog, email, watch TV, cross-stitch.

R is for biggest regret: Not that I could do anything about this, but I'll always regret not having a sister.

S is for status: Married since 2005!

T is for time you woke up today: 9:30! Kirsten slept in!

U is for what you consider unique about yourself: I've done lots of things that most people never get to do, like riding elephants in Thailand and holding a koala in Australia!

V is for vegetable you love: Fresh corn on the cob, and mashed potatoes

W is for worst habit: Being addicted to lots of reality TV shows

X is for x-rays you've had: Teeth, hand, I think that's it

Y is for yummy food you ate today: I haven't eaten much today yet, but this afternoon I'm going to eat my Dilly Bar!

Z is for zodiac: Pisces the Fish

I think this is such a FUN way to get to know people better! So I am tagging-

  1. Clark and I LOVE Fuddrucker's and we too are addicted to 'So You Think You Can Dance'. I haven't agreed fully on their latest cuts - but oh well. I guess it's 'America's Choice'. :)

    *Did you get notice that I changed the location of my blog? You can still get there by the same address but the RSS feed url has changed. It's

  2. This was fun to read! I have a stepdaughter who works at Fuddruckers...I think I need to see if she gets any sort of food discount for family members.

    The dogs you posted are soooo cute! I won't show my kids though, they will pester me about trading the dog we do have for one of those!

  3. So you think you can dance is my favorite. I am so glad that COmfort is gone. She sucked. But I am kind of mad about WIll. He was the BEST

  4. Thanks for the tag - I'm excited to do it. It was fun learning even more about you. I had no idea you were such a world traveler! And I also wish I had a sister. My sister-in-law is my best friend, but it's still not quite the same. I like being your bloggy friend!

  5. So many, many tags Ashley!! How do I choose, haha! Well I think I will for sure do this one, it looks really fun and for SURE In and Out is the *best* place ever for burgers!

  6. Ha, I totally love that you tagged me, it's so flattering! I just have all these tags I want to do and so many blogs to do! :) I'm so excited to do them, blogging is the best ever!

  7. I am soooooo impressed. That must have taken you AGES to compile. Such fun!

  8. Thanks for the awesome tag! I cannot wait to do it!

  9. I completely forgot you tagged me! I'll have to do it for tomorrow.

    I just came to say that I like Jeff Dye, too. I only saw a bit of his, and Eliza's -is that her name?- because I was watching SYTYCD and wrestling with the boys. Oh- I also saw the very first guy. I didn't like him. And I missed the playboy mansion challenge. Darn. :o)

  10. Ok,
    1. I live In n Out too!! I live in Texas, so, needless to say, I haven't eaten there in forever.
    2. I'm from California too!!!!! San Luis Obispo, what part are you from??
    3. I want a little king charles puppy too!! My parents have a golden retriever, he's a sweetie, but, kind of a mutant--he and I weigh about the same!
    4. Have I told you how cute your little one is? Well, she's adorable!

  11. Hi Ashley!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this post!!!! :)

    and i see that you tagged me!! YAY! i will get to work on this might take me a while!♥ It will be Fun, though!!!

    i always like reading your "tags" because i get to know you better!! I SWEAR i wish we lived closer together!!! i just KNOW we would be Best Friends (aside from our Husbands, of course!!!)

  12. Rebecca: I am wishing I could go to Fuddruckers right now! And I didn't agree at all about Will going home, I thought it should have been Mark!

    Kween: Thanks! I want a dog so much! But I have to wait until we have an actual yard.

    Rach: Me too. I completely agree!

    Alyssa: It's so fun getting to know you better too! You are a great bloggy friend! :)

    Rachel: Yes, do this tag! Must do all tags. :)

    Amber: Yes it took awhile, but it was fun!

    Tiffany: I'm excited to see it!!

    Shabby Princess: I'm from San Diego! I miss it, but still get to go there quite a bit because my family still lives there.
    Aren't those Cavalier King Charles dogs SO cute and sweet? I'm glad you like them too! I love their sweet faces! And THANKS!

    Merrianne: You are so great! I'm really excited to see your answers to the tag too. :) And I totally agree, we would be BEST friends if we lived closer and could actually hang out!

  13. Ahh! I totally wrote a long comment out and then my baby banged on the keyboard and it is gone....
    My husband and I talked about going to Fudruckers last night but went somewhere else instead.
    I can't remember what else I typed...Oh well.
    Another tag! I am behind on my blog reading so I just saw this one. At least this one is not stressing me out like the music one. :-)

  14. Jeanette: Kirsten has done that to me before too! I hate that! I'm sorry the music post is stressing you out. You don't have to do it, only if you want to! :) And it doesn't matter if the music is popular. Just any songs you like!

  15. Thanks for visiting my blog for hte blog swap!
    My favorite game is Quelf, and if you haven't heard of it, you really should look it up and then go buy it! Super fun!
    My brother lives somewhat near Seattle in Bremerton area. Not sure what town,though.

  16. I've always liked the picture of you with the koala.


Comments make me happy :)
