The ABCs of Erin

Lots of fellow bloggers have done a post like this (including my SIL, Kayla) so I did what any awesome blogger does... I stole it. I tried to think of adjectives for each letter of the alphabet, which proved to be more difficult than I thought it would be. But with new faces showing up around here all the time (Hi, by the way!) I figured this spin on an 'about me' post would be perfect. Enjoy... hopefully you'll learn something new about me today.

A. Type-A, all the way. I annoy myself sometimes with it!

B. Bengals-lover. Whodey, whodey!?!!

C. Christian. God Rocks :)

D. Driven. I feel like when I want something I go after it. I know I'm in charge of my own successes or failures.

E. E is for Erin... I think I went through a phase where I didn't like my name, but as an adult I really like it. Thanks, mom and dad ;) Good choice!

F. Football-Obsessed. This is not anything new, of course, but my life is slowly being consumed with it again. Yes, it's still July but training camp has started and things are in full-swing!

G. Girly. Yes, I love sports, but I also love the color pink, glitter, sappy chick flicks... Definitely no tomboy here.

H. Hugger. I just like them a lot, okay?!
This is me giving a REALLY good hug. FYI ;)

I. Imaginative. As an aspiring writer, I definitely don't always feel my imagination is awake, but I know it's in there, and when it's on, it's REALLY on. I also have some of the wildest dreams ever, which I credit to my imagination.

J. Jared. My absolute best friend in the entire world. I love him more every day, truly. So glad he puts up with me!

K. Klutzy. I didn't use to feel this way, but over the past couple of years I feel more like a klutz all the time. I cannot tell you how often I stub my poor little baby toes. Ouch!

L. Learner. I love to read both fiction and non-fiction. I love watching documentaries, learning about new things and new places. I miss school and catch myself thinking about going back 'just for fun' sometimes!

M. Married for 3.167 years now... and it's pretty freakin' awesome.

N. Nerdy. Helllo, I have an alter-ego to explain this.

O. Organized. Nothing makes me happier than a decluttered, organized space.

P. Planner. Constantly... over everything. I'm SO not a go with the flow kinda' person... sorry!

Q. Quirky. I'm pretty weird...end of story.

R. Runner. I may not be the best, but at least I'm trying!

S. Singer. I sing all day long. In my car, in my office (quietly, of course) at the gym, at home, while I blog.... you can't shut me up!

T. Talkative. Hours can pass by with me and a friend and we barely take a minute to take a breath! I've come home hoarse from a girls night before because I've just talked nonstop. Yikes! I promise I listen, too!

U. Unique. But aren't we all? ;)

V. Vivacious- full of life!? I think so!

W. Wanderlust. Traveling is always on my mind. I have so many wish-lists and must-see places... I hope I can get to them all in my lifetime.

X. Xavier U graduate! Woop, woop!

Y. Years of age -- 27... and honestly? I've never felt better! I used to freak out over my age but I think I'm over that now. Gotta' embrace every age.
This is me embracing my most recent birthday :)

Z. Zany. Which is basically the cousin to Q = Quirky, but hey... I'm running out of adjectives and options here ;)


  1. You wouldn't be MY most favorite Erin ever if you weren't zany, quirky, and a totally amazing hugger ;) love you!!!

  2. Zany, quirky, I love it all!

  3. So fun!!! I'm a tomboy girliegirl tooo!!!
    <3 you attitude!

  4. Love that you actually miss school. I'm glad I'm not the only one...

  5. I think everyone goes through stages of not liking their name. I use to dislike mine growing up - when I'd play house or school I'd be something else but I like it now because you don't see very many Julies :)

  6. I didn't learn until 2nd grade that my real name is Rebecca and I thought it was so lame...haha I don't know why! I've still never gone by it though and would hardly response if my teachers called me it. It happens at work a little more often because my email shows up as Rebecca, maybe one day I'll go by it :P

    Can't wait to hang out again soooon and get in on all your hugs, singing parties and mexican dinner dates :)

  7. I love this! I may have to steal it as well. :)

  9. Umm yeah, I am totally stealing this! :)

    I love all of these things about you! Well, maybe not B, but still ;) I especially love X! My little guy's name kind of came from that school down south :)

  10. Great list. I identify with the Type A and the Planner and the Quirky and other nerdy things.

  11. I am totally a planner too! I loved this list - great way of getting to know other bloggers!

  12. oh I love this, I'm totally A type and am a planner too. We have some friends that are NOT planners and they'll book a trip somewhere and then do nothing else till they get's crazy and makes me anxious just thinking about it.

  13. Oh this was so cute!! I'll be stealing it next week ;) I am totally a planner and a tad type a too ;) That's how we get things done! Life is more efficient that way.

  14. I'm a total hugger too. Except I don't like people (uninvited) to come into my space. I know, dumb.

  15. I always love posts like this because you get so much behind the scenes fun ;-) I hug a lot too....poor Mark runs from me sometimes

  16. My parents were going to name me Erin but my dad changed it up when I was actually born. I love learning stuff, especially from documentaries! Any good recs?

  17. Hello ABC Erin! I love this post!

  18. You are so gorgeous it's annoying to me. :) I really appreciate letters A, O & P.

  19. First, I'm laughing at Kristin's comment that your beauty annoys her - hahaha!!! And yes, you're pretty :) And pretty awesome! Love learning about you in this fun way. Of course, I might have to steal it as well!


Thanks SO much for taking the time to read and comment on my blog! I read each one and love to respond and chat with you! :)
