The Versatile Blogger Award

My lovely cousin Whitney awarded me with this lovely award. :)

Unfortunately, I don't even know how to spell "Versatile". I had to check like three times while I typed the title for my post. Lol.

Anyway, that was very kind of her... guess I have to divulge my deep dark secrets now.

I'm going to copy Whitney and do ABC's about myself. I'm not creative enough to come up with my own way to share random things about myself.

A. Age: 21... don't judge. :) I'm young, I know.

B. Bedsize: Queen. I had a twin until I got married, which was more than sufficient because I don't move around much when I sleep. I only toss and turn once I start pressing snooze in the morning. :) 

C. Chore you dislike: Laundry, especially whites. It takes SO LONG to put away an entire basket full of socks and underware! A whole basket of jeans on the other hand takes like 5 seconds to put away. Volume of one pair of jeans > volume of one pair of socks. Time to put away one pair of jeans=time to put away one pair of socks. You do the math. Thank you very much.

D. Dogs: Um, I'm not much of an animal person... I used to say my only pets were my little brother and little sister. But, we live in a basement apartment now, and the entrance is in the backyard where two golden retrievers live. So, we sorta have two dogs. I don't have to clean up after them though, and they're not in my house, so I'm good with that. One of them can fit three tennis balls in his mouth at a time. Serious.

E. Essential start to your day: Oh dear... this is where Lindsay reveals her OCDness. Since like the dawn of time, this is my morning: wake up, beeline to the bathroom. Go to bathroom. Wash hands. Wash face. Brush teeth. Shower. Put on acne stuff (stages 2 and 3). Get dressed. At this point I either do my hair and put on makeup or eat breakfast. Then I do the other one. This is the only flexible part of my morning. :) The end.

F. Favorite color: I'm a fan of green...olive green, "spa" green, grey-green, green green green. As far as furniture goes I like black wood, but as far as everything else? Green. 

G. Gold or Silver: Silver. Maybe it's because I'm blonde... I don't know... I just don't particularly care for how gold looks on me. But since we all know the only jewelry I usually ever wear is my wedding ring, it doesn't matter too much. It's white gold...which counts as silver in the color book.

H. Height: 5'6"

I. Ice cream flavor:  (Random side note: I always spell icecream without the space. I know it's not right, but it seems better to me. You don't take a break between the ice and the cream--please people. It's all part of one lovely conglomeration of deliciousness.) Okay, so icecream is my weakness. It's my dessert of choice. Because of that, I have a hard time picking a favorite. But, Graham Canyon from BYU creamery is what I'll be eating in Heaven, so I think that counts as my favorite.

J. Job title: Student/Teacher/Office Specialist. I've been a data entry person/ secretary in a government position for the past 4 years to put myself through college, but my true occupation has been that of a student... my occupation in the near future will be High School math teacher. Yup, I'm a nerd. :)

K. Kids: Right now I have approximately 130 kids... all between the ages of 15 and 18. :) My own? Nope, not yet. Bryan's got too much school left still.

L. Live: True. I am living. :) Jk. I live in Provo, UT.

M. Movie: Unfair question. Depends on my mood. Here are some of my favorites: Harry Potter 7 (both parts), Wit, A Beautiful Mind, North and South, Pride and Prejudice, Signs, um... I don't know... I could go on forever; Let's be honest.

N. Nicknames: When I was a baby I was "baby Linny". My grandpa still calls me "Lin". When I was little everybody called me "Linds". That one stuck. My dad called me "Roni" (pronounced like maca-roni) all growing up. Neither of us are sure why. :) My family used to call me "el presidente" because I was president of like everything in Jr High. Then they called me "Dr. Bolton" because I was/am obsessed with all things medical. That about covers it! :)

O. Overnight hospital stays: Nope. Once I had minor jaw surgery and the nurse almost messed up the paperwork... it was supposed to be a quick in and out thing, and she almost made me stay overnight. I was not having that.

P. Pet peeves: Parents that pull their kids out of school for 2 weeks at the end of the term for the hunt, crazy people that move to Provo and neglect learning how to drive in the snow, people that wear leggings with tshirts and call it good (please people, I don't want to see what you're showing), um...I have more pet peeves but they tend to depend on how anal I'm feeling that day... oh, another one... I don't like sharing cell phones....eewww....another person's face boogies? Yuck.

Q. Quote from a movie: "Listen, do you smell something?" (Ghostbusters).

R. Right or left-handed: Right.

S. Siblings: One sister, 19 years old. One brother, 16 years old.

T. Time you wake up: By choice? Lol. Jk. Weekdays: 6:15 AT THE LATEST. (I have to be out the door by 7:00) Saturdays: Usually around 8:00. Sundays: about 7:30

U. University: Brigham Young University, Provo. Bachelor of Mathematics Education, TELL minor (Teaching English Language Learners), ESL endorsed, licensed to teach any secondary math including AP Calculus and AP statistics. I'd take a job starting next Fall if anyone's offering. :)

V. Vegetables you don't like: Uh, I don't love beets... do they count as a vegetable?  

W. What makes you run late: Besides the fact I have to be gone by 7 everyday? Uh, my love of my snooze button... that'd do it. Sometimes I don't even hear my alarm until like the 5th time pressing snooze in my sleep. I set my alarm for much earlier than I need to get up because of this. :) Also, if I do anything in my routine out of order? I'm toast. It takes me way longer. 

X. X-rays you've had: Normal dental and orthodontist x-rays, and x-rays on my jaw... I have awful TMJ and have had to have surgery because of a huge buildup of scar tissue and other things.

Y. Yummy food you make: I'd like to think I'm a pretty good cook. I make lots of things... delicious desserts, yummy cafe rio style mexican food, delicious Thai food, I'm hungry for lunch so everything sounds delicious, yummy salads, etc. I'm always trying new things...sometimes successful, sometimes not...but I'm a pretty good cook.

Z. Zodiac: Gemini


I agree to do the following:
1. Thank the blogger who awarded me and link back to him/her
2. Share 7 things about myself (see above!)
