6 Things You Probably Didn't Know About Me {A to Z Edition, Part 3}

It is BACK TO REALITY this week! The holidays are over....the eating, the family time, the lack of work and increase in play.....over! #BuzzKill

Don't get me wrong, I loved the last couple of weeks - we had a lot of good times - but I was happy to get back on schedule today....kids are back at school, the hubby's back at work and I have time (to myself!) to get my own work done!  It's a beautiful thing!

I have a lot of exciting posts in the works for this month (stay tuned!!), but for today I'm finishing out my latest series....here is the final installment of 

10 6 Things You Probably Didn't Know About Me (A to Z Edition)...Part 3! 
(Check out Parts 1 and 2 if you missed them!)

U: Uruguay
No, I've never been (it's in South America)! But I do know the capital....Montevideo! When I was in 7th grade I had the BEST Geography teacher! We learned EVERY country and capital, all of the mountain ranges and deserts and oceans - we had a 100 question exam every Friday! He had a maps of all of the continents up around the room and he would just walk around pointing to things and we would have to write down the answer. He wasn't everyone's favorite but I loved it!

V: Vacuuming
It is not something that I do very often - but when a carpeted room is 'freshly' vacuumed it just looks perfect - so clean and organized, even if it isn't!  Do you agree?

W: Water Sports
Hate 'em! Yep - I'm a born & bred Florida girl that hates all things water.  There is a 99.9% chance that you'll never see me water skiing or tubing - jet skiing I'll do (as long as we don't tip over!). But there's just something about the big, open water that freaks me out!

X: Mix
X is a hard one....so miX it is! In my previous life, as a research engineer, I did A LOT of mixing!  I spent hours in the lab mixing drugs with chemicals and adhesives and polymers and...well you get the picture!

Y: Yellow
While yellow isn't my favorite color (blue is!), it has definitely taken a close 2nd in the last few years.  It's bright and happy and vibrant....really just puts you me in a good mood!

Z: Pizza
I cheated on this one too but Z is another hard one! There's just something about a great slice of cheese pizza, that's not too hot because you don't want to burn your mouth, with no other toppings, and a crunchy crust heavily dipped in creamy Italian or ranch dressing. YUUUUUM!

Now...tell me something about YOU that I probably didn't know!!!
See you guys soon :)
