ABC of Me

To enjoy a break from all things baby I present you with a fun, borrowed idea from Noelle

Ambition- Peace and clarity in all things

Bad Habit- Nail biting. I started as a kid and have never been able to stop. 

City- St. Joe, MO (Woop woop!)

Drink- Fat Tire. Is anything better than a good, dark beer on a hot summer day?

Education- Bachelor's Degree in Political Science with an emphasis in International Relations/ 200 Hour RYT  

Food- I have been loving me some Indian cuisine. During the pregnancy I developed quite the serious relationship with this lovely food and the hubby loves to cook it, a match made in Heaven. Extra bonus- it's super easy to keep it vegetarian. 

Guilty Pleasure- I watch Teen Mom. Like religiously. 

Hometown- St. Joseph, MO

Ice Cream- Mint Chocolate Chip in a waffle cone. 

Jonesing For- A romantic evening out with the husband.

Kryptonite- Baby toes. I guess more specially my baby's toes. They are so wonderfully small and perfect it breaks my heart.

Look-Alike- Curly Sue. This movie came out at the exact right time when I looked exactly like that little girl. Like seriously, people would stop and ask for my autograph.

Movie- Amelie. I watch it every year on my birthday and it makes me ridiculously happy.

Nickname- "Na-na" as a kid- my middle name is Renee. "Duck" and "Duckles McNeely" later on. I actually had a teacher in high school that I swear did not know my first name. He exclusively called me "Duck". It was the name I put on my assignments and what I was always referred to as, so I guess I can't blame him. 

Obsession- Lately...SLEEP. 

Perfume- "Sunflower" by Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab. Kellen purchased it for me a couple of years ago as a gift. The perfect mixture of earthy and sweet, it has been my favorite scent ever since. 

Quirk- If some says "Yikes" I have to say "Bikes". I don't know where or how this started, but now it's a thing I do without thought. I know, it's totally strange.

Regret- None. I wouldn't be where I am without every choice I've made, large or seemingly small. 

Starbucks- No thank you. I'm pretty sensitive to caffeine and I'm way sensitive to crazy ass prices, so I typically pass. 

Talent- I can fold my tongue in half. When I was a child I fell from a treehouse and landed on a metal bar with my mouth, slicing my tongue down the middle (snake style). Ever since then I've been blessed with a flippy, foldy tongue. Yay terrible accidents! Ha! 

University- Missouri Western State University '08

Vacation- I'm not really into the whole beach vaca type of thing. I'd love to spend some time in London, Prague, Vienna, Florence...the list goes on and on. I love cities with a history, a past you can dig through. Travel is something that is definitely high on my life list and something I'd like to do as much as possible with Ezra. I feel it's my duty to show him as much as I can and what gives you greater perspective than to see the world?

Wine- Winking Owl Shiraz- $2.99 at Aldi and tastes like a dream.

XXIX- I still have 4 years...

Years- 25 years young.

Zen- A clean house, a sleeping baby, and cuddling with the husband. 

Wishing you all a great weekend!

Teen Mom is the cat's pajamas. Also, Winking Owl is only $2.67 now. No joke.

This is awesome! Do you still have a split tongue, or did it heal up?

@Holly- OMG. The next time mama needs a little wine buzz I know where I'm going! Seriously though, that be crazy.

@Noelle- I had to get 17 stitches and visit a speech therapist for awhile, but it healed relatively quickly. I guess I was just into body modification a little bit before my parent's could handle it.
