ABCs of BalancingB

23 Feb

Do you remember when you would get those email chains with all of your friends on them and you had to answer a bunch of questions about yourself? Well, that has come to the blog world. I saw a few of these floating around and decided to jump in on the fun. It is a great way to learn a little about me and then I can learn about you.


A. Age: 28

B. Bed size: Queen – I’m a snuggler, don’t need too much space 🙂

C. Chore you hate: cleaning, unless I am in cleaning ‘mode’ where I am ready to tackle the dust, it seems like the worst thing in the world.

D. Dogs: Love my little guy, Henry. ❤

E. Essential start to your day: My three loves; a cup-o-mud and a morning kiss from the boys

F. Favorite color: Purple

G. Gold or silver: Silver, but I like to rock some gold in the sunny months…looks awesome with a tan!

H. Height: 5’2 3/4 ” though I always say 5’3” and PG corrects me…why does he have to be a hater like that?! 🙂

I. Instruments you play: I played the violin for seven years.

J. Job title: Account Supervisor

K. Kids: None yet, but definitely in the future!

L. Live: Northville, MI

M. Mom’s name: Polly

N. Nicknames: Brynner, Brynnie, B, BG, Bubba, Dill, Little Dill (my maiden name is Dilloway)

O. Overnight hospital stays: Luckily, none!

P. Pet peeve: People who drive slow in the fast lane (yes, I live in Motor City so this is a big one for me), snobs (no need to be rude), farting in public (especially at the gym, have some manners), poor grammar and chewing with your mouth open.

Q. Quote from a movie: Well, not from a movie, but I always say, “Ba-nanas.” Thank you Rachel Zoe. “I die.”

R. Righty or Lefty: Righty

S. Siblings: Older sister Lindsay and younger brother Shane – two of my best friends and some of the greatest people you will ever meet. No joke. All of my friends become very close to my family because they are so much fun.

T. Time you wake up: Well, if you would have asked me this last week, I would have said between 4-4:45am (sick, I know). But now with my new job, I get up at 5:45am (happy camper!). On the weekend, usually around 8am.

U. Underwear: Umm, yes.

V. Vegetables you dislike: Beets and artichokes…I wish I liked them, but no such luck.

W. What makes you run late: Everything, I am ALWAYS late. I think it is because I always try to do ONE more thing. Well, that one thing turns into two, then three…oops! I am working on it.

X. X-rays you’ve had: Just for my pearly whites. Nothing else.

Y. Yummy food you make: baked goods from cupcakes to cookies to bars and scones. I also make a mean bbq chicken, coconut shrimp and couscous.

Z. Zoo animal (favorite): I love giraffse and elephants.


Well, now you know some very random and fun facts about me. Here are some more, but I am listing out some of my guilty pleasures instead:

1). I love to drive, road trips are my favorite. There is something about getting behind the wheel, turning up the music and putting the windows down…heaven.

2). I love candy in a seriously way along with ice cream and coffee…it’s not right.

3). Real Housewives. Love.

4). Eating cereal out of the box. I have gotten better about this since I got married – this was something I would do frequently before. And yes, that was my dinner. Sad.

5). Magazines. I get several a month and I devour them. In another life (or maybe still this one), I would be an editor of a magazine.

Ok, now it’s your turn. What are your guilty pleasures? We all have something…. 🙂
