I first saw this oh so fun "ABC's of Moi" post on Melissa's blog "Champaign Wishes" and felt I just needed to do it!

Then, I saw it circulating in blogland and others said I should fill it out. So, I thought it would be appropriate for a fun, little Sunday post! :)

Here I am with mine, enjoy! Oh yes, and scroll down for discounts!

Age: 31...shhh! :)

Bed size: Full or what some call a double. On a side note, I think they are a tad short in length for taller people..."just sayin'" (to quote my fabulous fiancé)! LOL!

Chore you hate: Cleaning bathroom floors and the toilet, although I try to do it often because they get dirty so quickly it seems.

Dogs: Never had a dog and I'm not really a dog person...sorry, dog lovers! :)

Essential start to your day: Smart One breakfast, preferably the new egg, sausage and cheese wrap ups, and coffee with Coffee-mate creamer, preferably peppermint mocha, and a splenda.

Favorite Color: This is tough. It was red when I was little, I'm attracted to fuchsia and I really like a happy yellow.

Gold or Silver: White gold or platinum for fine jewelry and fake versions of either for fun, trendy jewelry. However, I used to never wear gold, but now I really like it!

Height: 5'8"

Instruments I play (or have played): Recorder waaay back in the day in music class, but that is it...oh and the triangle in music class too! LOL!

Job Title: Actor and Freelance Artist...I do a lot of web design, layouts, retouching, scrapbooking and card creating on the side as well as some casting assistant work for Broadway, TV and Film.

Kids: Love them, but don't have any.

Live: Burbank, CA

Mom's name: Kay

Nickname: Schmiesl, Tinkerbell, Lee Lee, LaLa, LK, Barbie, Kermit, and Sliesl, but not for the reason you are thinking, just as a joke after a college friend thought it would be funny to put that as my name on the screen while bowling! :)

Overnight Hospital stays: Thankfully, never. I spent many long days and nights at one this past summer with someone, but never overnight.

Pet Peeve: Not using turn signals, toilet paper on what I consider backwards, grammar misuse, especially less than vs. fewer, who vs. whom, me vs. I and she vs. her/he vs. him (though even I am guilty at times.)

Quote from a movie: Both are from one of my favorite movies "Clue!" 1. "Flam - flames. Flames, on the side of my face, breathing-breath- heaving breaths. Heaving breaths... Heathing..." 2. I'm not shouting! All right, I am! I'm shouting, I'm shouting, I'm shout... (candlestick falls from above and hits him on the head.)

Right or Left handed: Right.

Siblings: One older and one younger sister...I'm in the middle.

Time you wake up: Totally depends and varies everyday. Though the older I get the earlier I wake up...first sign of getting old, kiddies! ;)

Underwear: Cereal brand boyshorts in a variety of colors and cute prints from Forever 21 are my favorite!

Vegetables you dislike: I'll eat almost anything, or at least try it, but I am not a huge fan of asparagus.

What makes you run late: I hate being late, and even when I try to be fashionably late for something where it would be appropriate, I am usually somehow still early!

X-Rays you've had done: Teeth, heart/rib area and spine.

Yummy food you make: Well, I don't really cook, but Kraft mac 'n cheese, yes, I love it, homemade pizza on garlic herb bread with veggies and ingredients from Trader Joe's and Mexican fajitas.

Zoo animal: Buffalo or bison, but I love zebra and giraffe too, and monkeys make me smile! :)

Feel free to fill this out yourself, I just love learning new things about people and it is rather quick and simple!

Also, as promised, I have some discounts for you to help spruce up your spring and summer wardrobe a bit this season!
