A to Z

A- Anne. The name that I get called daily at my job. I answer phones for living so it goes a little something like this "Hi this is Erin how can I help you?" "Yes, Anne...I have a question".
{me. on the job. answerin' phones like a boss}
Apparently they didn't get the memo that I actually like to go by Mariah. Or Jasmine. You know, from Aladdin. True story--I used to not respond to people unless they called Mariah. That was pre-Nick Cannon days and more in the days when my dad referred to her as Diarrhea.

B- Bacon Cheeseburger Roll-up. Also known as the last thing I ate. Also known as the manliest thing a woman can put in her stomach. Consider it put.

C- Cow. Which is exactly what I plan on dressing up as on Friday for Cow Appreciation Day.
I will do anything for a free meal at Chick-fil-A. Anything.

D- Deodorant. Which happens to be on every single item of clothing I own. Seriously people, I am a mess 24/7. Please come live with me for a day to realize this. Please?

E- Erin and Eggs. I hate eggs. I don't hate my name. I mean it's no Mariah or Jasmine though.

F- Fishing Boat. My new favorite place to hang.

G- Grace. Something that has been shown to me time and time again.
{print in my office from Naptime Diaries}

H- Hyper. What I get, quite frequently which usually results in weird dancing and lots of loud shouting. My husband LOVES when I get hyper.

I- Ipod. The one item that will make me go deaf by the time I am 29. I am almost positive of this.

J- Jitters. Something I experience quite frequently. Usually after drinking more than one cup of coffee or right before I need to eat more Jolly Ranchers.

K- Kip Moore. The only CD I listen to right now. I can't say the word love enough when talking about him. Or his music. #lovelovelove. Told you, not enough.

L- Lips. Which produce the most foolish kissy faces. And even more foolish pictures.

M-Manicure. Something I plan on doing Wednesday night with my Martini Night. Watch out nails, you are about to be lookin' flllllly.

N- Nuts. I love them all. Especially cashews and salted peanuts. And those other kind of nuts. Yeah, those.

O- Ostracized. Which is exactly what I am about to be by my husband if I don't get my butt out in the yard to mow.

P-Pressure. Something I have been putting on myself recently when it comes to blogging. It's almost as if it just dawned on me that people actually read this thing. And that they may just expect something when they show up. I hate expectations. 

Q- Quiet. I crave quiet times. Moments alone just to lose myself in my thoughts. I need more of these times. A lot more now that I think about it.

R-Regrets. I have plenty. Most of which will never be blogged about.

S- Shawn. Sexy. They go hand in hand. Especially when he pretends to read out of magazines about travel and wine. Yumm.

T- Travel. The one thing that I will save money for even if I am as broke as a joke.

U- Ugly. Which is the exact opposite of you, you, and you. Buhleedat. {translation: "believe that" for you less ghetto readers}.

V-Virgin. For life. Not. Thank you Jesus.

W- Wino. For life. And this is not a joke.

X- Xylophones?!?!

Y- Yellow. I live in it, duh. Especially my legs. They love living in yellow.

Z-Zeeee End.

    Makes me wanna scream.

    Thanks for the funny post! Just brightened up my Monday!

  15. Loved reading all of these and learning more about you.

  16. You're beautiful. And hilarious. Basically you're the coolest person I {wish} I really knew! Let me see...I hate eggs {like, really hate them}, love yellow, love that grace print {& that verse!}. So basically...we're BFF's. :)

    P.S: If you're donning a cow costume on Friday, we need pictures! Many of them. :)

  17. A- You are adorable B- Begging you to do a tutorial for your smoky eye C) cheesy smiling from A-Z!

    Loved it!

  18. A - Almost time for you to come to C - Chicago so we can get B - Bombed on S - Sunday morning. Sooo soon. Can't wait to see you in a few days!

    I hope you have not already gone deaf from your iPod by then. Otherwise I best learn sign language this week.

  19. oh my gosh - my name is Erin too and people have always thought I was saying Anne! When I tell people that they look at me like I am crazy....glad it isn't just me! :)

  20. my mom is obsessed with Kip Moore, but she calls him 'the red sun dress guy', i got her hooked on our road trip!

  21. Love this post! And I agree eye makeup tutorial! I thought the same thing when I saw L, "ohh pretty eye makeup"

  22. I adore this post. Seriously you are hilarious, which I'm sure you hear daily. Also part of the time at work I answer phones too and I have to use a fake name, which is Lana Rose (yes you read that right, Lana Rose) and I constantly get, Lina? Elaina, or what is your name again. It's great. Anywho, super fun post! :)

  23. This was cute :D Love the fishing boat pictures. I'm am muy jealous.

  24. I love this post! And Chick-fil-A...yum!!!

  25. Love this A-Z, Erin! May just do one on my blog (with a link back of course, that's just good manners! lol)

  26. love this post! have to say there are probably many posts I wouldn't make it a through z but i liked your letters. : )

  27. I can totally relate to your first one. I used to answer phones for a living as well, and I'd say, "Hi my name is Shannon, how may I help you?" and I'd get the response, "Hi Janet". I guess Shannon sounds like Janet as much as Erin sounds like Anne. LOL. :)

  28. J. Jealous of you, and your little life, oh, and your bod.


  29. Love this post! You crack me up, Mariah! ;)


  30. love this post. p.s. i am totally copying you :).

  31. We need to be bffs, for real. I think we'd get into some trouble if we hung out though...it would be a heck of a good time! There are a bazillion things I want to say, but here are the high points:

    --I need some of that beef roll up like RIGHT now.
    --I need some time on a boat.
    --I want that print out, I am in love with it!
    --You look hotttt in those yellow pants

    Well, there were a bunch more, but I lost my train of thought. Shocker.

    Happy Tuessssday!

  32. Love everything about this post. You're hysterical & oh so random (much like myself). You should go link up for 'Truth or Dare' on my blog today. :) :) DO IT! I have a feeling you'd be one of the best face dancers, EVER! You'll understand what I mean if you go check out the link up....

  33. WOW I love this!
    I think every blogger should have a A-Z Post.

OH, and I found your cute little blog from your guest post on Framed Frosting. Loved the post and had some great thoughts and ideas for us new bloggers:)

  61. Hold up why are you mowing the lawn?!?! Thats a boy job haha :)

    My boyfriend asked me to mow the lawn once. I will never fall for that trick again!

  63. This totally cracked me up! I definitely "borrowed" your idea...but with much less wit and humor!


I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
