I totally stole this idea from Katie at The Happy Hours.

Welcome to the ICLWers! I thought this was a great idea, so I’m going to introduce myself via the alphabet.

Aunt- I have 4 neices and a nephew who I love with my whole heart.
Broken bone- as in, I have never had one.
Cat- as in, I have one! Her name is Maggie.
Dog- I have one of those, too. Charlie, the Shih Tzu, is the cutest dog in the world
Eeek! This is hard than I thought it was going to be!
Fish- I have had 2. Superman and Superman, Jr. I accidentally sent Sr. to the fishbowl in the sky when he fell down the garbage disposal while I was cleaning his cage. Jr. died after I forgot to take him out of the house when we bug bombed. I’m not allowed to have silent animals anymore.
Girly- My husband says I’m the girliest girl he’s ever met. I take that as a compliment!
Handel’s- one of my favorite places to get ice cream
Iron Commentor- Or, what I'm going to be at the end of this week
Jill- my name (creative, right?)
Kit Kat- my favorite candy (you know, in case anyone ever wants to send me a present)
Laughter- something I think the world couldn’t survive without.
Music- probably the most expressive/universal form of communication in the world.
Negative- every HPT I’ve ever taken has shown up this way
Original- how I like to think of myself.
Paul- my husband’s name
Quiet- something I never thought I’d get enough of (I was wrong)
Risk taker- something I don’t really consider myself as.
Sunset- one of nature’s many wonders. Sometimes I wonder how someone can look at something so beautiful and doubt the existence of God.
TTC- what we’ve been doing since June 2007
Uvula- one of those words that I think is really funny
Vag cam- Something most of us have experienced a time or too many to count
Work- what I SHOULD be doing right now.
X-ray- the WORST part of going to the dentist (yes, even worse than the drill)
Yellow- My 2 year old niece’s favorite word. You should hear her say it. It’s adorable.
Z- is the last letter in the alphabet (Sorry, I can’t think of anything besides Zebra, and that’s way too obvious!)

Ok, I kinda just typed whatever came to my mind for all of these letters, obviously. Go see Katie. Hers is better.

What a creative way to introduce yourself for ICLW! Dumb me, I didn't even realize it was today until I started seeing the ICLW comments. Whoops!

Thanks for the comments on my blog earlier today btw! But I'll have to disagree with you on xrays being worse than the drill at the dentist. Give me a mouth full of stiff cardboard anytme compared to the wicked drill!


Jendeis said...

Hey. I loved reading this!

Erika said...

What a great idea... I may steal it from you... didn't know I was supposed to introduce myself, first timer here for ICLW

Parenthood For Me said...

I like it. May have to copy too. I like the fish part. My niece had 2 fish called Bert and Ernie. One died and now she calls the one fish BertandErnie!

Mrs. Gamgee said...

Very cute intro... I might steal it for a future month.

Happy ICLW!

My Endo Journey said...

Love the intro! I have 4 nieces too, and 1 nephew!!! :) It's awesome to be an aunt, right?!??!

Lorza said...

Love the introduction via alphabet! Thanks for the comments on my blog. Yes, the ABX suck- but the UTIs suck even MORE!! LOL

Happy ICLW {{HUGS}}

Heather said...

I've never broken a bone, either. And suddenly I feel like I need to knock on wood and throw some salt over my shoulder. :)

Good luck in your iron commenting--I'm impressed by those of you who take it on!

Michelle said...

This is a great idea! Good Luck with the iron commenter. This is the first month I actually forgot all about ICLW. :(

Staci said...

ooo great idea!! ill have to do that good to get to know your abcs ;)

Katie said...

Xray worse than the drill?!?! How do you come to that conclusion?!?! LOL
Cute way to introduce yourself for ICLW! I may steal it next month!

Hope Endures said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog. :)

Awesome idea for an intro! I love it - especially W for Work, which I am not doing either at the moment. (ICLW)

Jill said...

I have a small mouth, so even the kid size x-ray things are too big for it. Also, I get canker sores REALLY easily, and they cut in to my gums on so many places that I always get a break out of them after the appt. That would be why I hate them worse than the drill. Plus, at least I'm numb for the drill!

nh said...

That's a lovely introduction post!

Lassie said...

Iron commenter? I think you are a risk taker!
Good luck!

Liddy said...

Very creative! :) Good luck on the Iron Commentator. Ambitious.

Uvula: "Ooooohhhh! It's a GIRL house!" Monster House. I like that word too! ICLW

Beautiful Mess said...

I saw this one, too. I was going to do it but forgot because I'm lame! You did a GREAT job!

The Captain's Wife said...

Thanks for coming by to visit! Loved your intro.

My cat, Face, got his name because when my niece was 5 (she's 19 now) there was this character on nickelodeon that was just eyes, nose and a mouth on the screen of the TV and his name was Face...she loved him and named the cat that.


The Captain's Wife said...

Oh yeah...I am curious to know what your other blog is about....

Stacie said...

Love your list, especially the line about silent animals. Totally made me laugh! :-)

Thanks for the comment on my blog!

Mama Bear said...

what a cool post!!! my husbands name is Paul also!

Thanks for the comment on my blog! I would disagree...I think we are all risk takers in this crazy circus of TTC. It takes a lot of courage for us to continue fighting the fight.


Stefanie said...

I liked your list, really something nice to keep in mind for future use.

there is a girl on my blogroll (emily the hopeless) who has pcos and has been through every kind of treatment imaginable, you should check her out if you have any questions about treatments, i think she even went to a homeopathic doctor for a while as well.

Serendipity said...

I'm not allowed silent pets either - my husband says I am too ditzy has banned me from owning anything that can't speak out for itself after an unfortunate instance involving putting animals in the same tank that then ate each other.

That is such an AWESOME list, think i might steal it for next time!

That does look hard!!! Have you ever seen Whose Line Is It Anyway where they play the back and forth questions only game and have to use the alphabet to do it???

Not easy!!

Joe said...

Thanks for the intro! I feel like I "know" you a little more, baby dust to you!
