Get to know me: A to Z survey

A to Z survey
March 8, 2016

I saw this post awhile back from Fitnessista and thought it would be fun to share on my blog since we are still in a “getting-to-know-each-other” phase. Feel free to play along at the end!

A: Age: 32

B: Biggest Fear: There are so many! I fear for my kids. That they’ll get injured or hurt.

C:  Current Time: 5:20 am

D: Drink You Had Last: Coffee. Still enjoying it.

E: Easiest Person To Talk To: My sister.

F: Favorite Song: I have many, but right now I love Cake by the Ocean by DNCE.

G: Grossest Memory: I mean seriously…as a parent there are SO many. A recent one was when Madison picked up a used toilet seat liner from the floor of a public restroom. I may have screamed.

H: Hometown: I was born and raised in Lewiston, NY. Before moving to North Carolina, we lived in Buffalo, NY. Yes, there is a lot of snow up there. We have been in Chapel Hill for 8 years and I love it here!

L: Longest Relationship: If you aren’t counting my nearly 30 year friendship with my BFF, then I’d say 10 years with Matt. <3

M: Middle Name: Tate (it’s a family name). I may have been referred to as “Alyssa Tape” when I was younger. Kids are cruel!

Q: Question You’re Always Asked: “How on earth do you manage twins?” Or, “How did you possibly carry twins?”

R:  Reason To Smile: The things my kids say make me laugh and smile. The other day, Maddie asked me very seriously if I knew the Muffin Man. That still cracks me up.


S: Song You Last Sang: Probably the theme song to the “Little Einsteins” show.  Like all the time.

T: Time You Woke Up: 5 a.m.

U: Underwear Color: Pink.

V: Vacation Destination: I’d love to go back to Hawaii! I’ve had a lifelong dream to visit France.



W: Worst Habit: Worrying. Close second is picking my nails.

X: X-Rays You’ve Had: Dental mostly. Also: hip, hamstring, foot. Mammogram. Enough said.
