The ABC's of SAH

A. Age: Newly 23!

B. Bed size: Queen, an abnormally high in height queen.  Late night trips to the bathroom are particularly hazardous, especially when you are under 5'4''. 

C. Chore you dislike: Taking out the garbage.  But I am blessed by an expert garbage man of a husband.

D. Dogs: Only imaginary :o)  Mike and I both desperately want a mangy mutt or a huge St. Bernard named Mom, but Mike is allergic.

E. Essential start to your day:  Sweat.  I love working out in the morning, enough to wake up at 5AM in order to fit it in.  There is nothing better then watching the sun rise while finishing a run.

F. Favorite color: Yellow.

G. Gold or silver: Silver, except for my mom's gold wedding band and gold monogram necklace. 

H. Height: 5'4", which is tall compared to the women in my family.  My grandma didn't pass five feet!

I. Instruments you play(ed): I took piano lessons for 12-13 years.  And then there was the painful stint as a cymbal player in my high school marching band...

J. Job title: Sarah Hughes, RN, Clinical Nurse Specialist (ha!)

K. Kids: None... but Mike and I pray and hope for a house full someday!

L. Live: Madison, WI.  I love living in Madison.  So much.  Good restraunts, live music, family friendly, awesome running and biking trails, college town.

M. Mom’s name: Ann.  Her full name was Ann Louise Adelmann/Dobbins, and her nickname was Wheeze, or Wheezie, as my grandpa would call her.

N. Nicknames: In high school I was known as Dobbins, or just Dobbs, which I think was just passed down from my two older brothers.  Mike has quite the rotating list of nicknames, ranging from Little One, to Pumpkin Head.  I know, I am a lucky girl.

O. Overnight hospital stays: None.  Knock on wood.

P. Pet peeves: Sniffling.  There is nothing worse then sitting in a quiet room with someone who won't just blow their nose and keeps sniffling.  Kleenex was made for a reason, people.  Also, how impossible it is to keep our black stove top clean.  No matter what, there are always crumbs on it.

Q. Quote from a movie: "No! No.  You may only call me Mrs. Darcy when you are completely, perfectly, and incandescently happy."       -Pride and Prejudice

R. Righty or lefty:  Righty

S. Siblings: Andy and Shawn, both older!  As much as I have always longed for a sister, I feel incredibly blessed to have such awesome older brothers.

T. Time you wake up: 5AM during the week.  On the weekends I can sleep as late at 10, but I have a strange quirk.  I always wake up hungry, usually by 6:30, so I will eat breakfast, then go back to bed and sleep the morning away.

U. Underwear: I'm in favor of it.

V. Vegetables you don't like: Eggplant and canned green beans.

W. What makes you run late: Emptying the dishwasher before going into work, trying to find my other mitten in the mess that is our winter basket, deciding what to wear.  And it seems like, no matter how much extra time we plan into our morning, Mike and I are always at least a few minutes late to church.  I don't know the last time we were there before the music started.  Something always stands in our way, despite our best intentions to be early church goers.

X. X-rays you’ve had: Teeth? 

Y. Yummy food you make: Soup and chili.  Curry and stir fry.  Veggie lasagna.  Cookies. 

Z. Zoo animal favorites: Elephants!


  1. love this post! i also love elephants ha! xo

  2. I forget how short Gram A was, is that your future?

    I loved how Gram would sing those really old songs to us, and how there was a 95% chance she would be on the phone when you came over but would tell whoever was on the other end that her grandchildren just came over and she'd have to call them back.

  3. I can remember her singing that "give me a little kiss" song a lot. It's actually called "Gimme a Little Kiss, Will Ya, Huh?" and it's creepy.
