Hey party people! Happy Friday!
We’re having a fun but busy week over here. Yesterday I had my first official MOPS meeting (loved it and all the wonderful ladies in my group!), and I’ve been busily preparing for Cody’s birthday, cleaning the house, and doing endless loads of laundry. I also went to go pick up our bibs and packets for The Dirty Dash! I’m so darn excited I can hardly stand it.
Some of you bloggers within the healthy living niche may have seen “The Sunshine Award” going around lately. Those of you that aren’t bloggers, it’s just a fun little “award” where you tag other bloggers, they answer your questions, and then we all get to know one another a little better. Fun, right? My inner junior higher loves these little surveys, so let’s get to it!
P.S. Here are the official “rules” in case you’re interested:
1. Include award logo in a post or on your blog.
2. Link to the person who nominated you 3. Answer 10 questions about yourself.
4. Nominate 10 bloggers to receive the award. Link your nominees to the post and comment on their blogs letting them know they’ve been nominated.
1. When is your birthday?
2. What’s your favorite TV show?
Parenthood – I hope Netflix gets itself together and adds the next season soon!
3. What’s your favorite thing about fall?
What’s not my favorite thing about fall? I love it all – scarves, sweaters, and boots; pumpkin flavored everything; candy corn; the changing leaves; Thanksgiving, etc. etc. etc.
4. Sweet or savory?
I dream of cupcakes floating around my head if that gives you a clue.
5. What’s your dream job?
Being a mommy. Dream = reality. I’m one blessed lady.
6. What book are you currently reading?
Uhhh, none? I need to get on that… I have the second Hunger Games book reserved at the library if that counts for anything.
7. What time do you typically wake up in the morning?
Usually between 6:30 – 7 AM. I would really love to start getting in the habit of waking up around 6 so I can workout before Hunter wakes up, but I’m not really sure my boobs would love that. (TMI? Whoops. Just keepin’ it real folks.)
8. What’s your favorite holiday?
Christmas!! Pretty please let it be a white Christmas?! We are staying in Utah for Christmas this year. In the past, every year we’ve left for Christmas, Utah got snow, and every year we’ve stayed, Utah doesn’t get snow. Praying for snow this year. And then it can all go buh-bye!
9. What’s your ideal vacation spot?
Anywhere that involves a beach, sunshine, hammock, and margarita in my hand, and I’m good to go.
10. What’s your favorite animal?
Labrador Retriever. Good thing we have two of the cutest around.
1. Favorite nut butter?
Linz, why must you ask such difficult questions? Can’t I just love them all? Kidding. Kind of. I’m a total weirdo and categorize my nut butters, so here we go… My favorite “every day use” nut butter would be Adam’s All Natural Crunchy Peanut Butter. My favorite “dessert” nut butter would be Justin’s Vanilla Almond Butter. And my favorite “runner ups” would be Trader Joe’s Cocoa Almond Spread and Peanut Butter & Co. White Chocolate Wonderful. Obviously I’m an obsessive nut butter lover. Call me crazy, I don’t care.
2. You have the option: fro yo or ice cream…but you can only have one…forever!
Gahhh you’re killin’ me Linz! I love both, but I’d probably have to go with good old fashioned ice cream. Nothing beats rich and creamy full fat ice cream.
3. Dream car?
I really don’t pay much attention to vehicles. Is that weird? I guess I just think how ridiculous it is that you can spend 50 grand (or more) on a piece of metal and then it loses its value *like that* as soon as you drive away from the car dealership. Not to mention the possibility of someone running into you at any moment. Sorry, but I guess that’s just the realistic and practical side of me. Rant over. For reals though, I wouldn’t mind a Chevy Tahoe someday. Love those things.
4. If you could only do one type of workout for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Body Pump classes! They’re so fun, they make me feel super buff, and they’re always switching things up.
5. Best magazine?
I don’t really read magazines anymore, but I’ll go with Sunset or People.
6. All food is “healthy” for you. What do you choose to indulge in?
Brownies, cookie dough, thick crust pizza, barbecue bacon cheeseburger, ice cream, curly fries. OK, just typing all of that at once makes me kind of want to barf, but individually each of those things sound really delicious to me.
7. What decade would you like to experience?
The 50’s! I think the poodle skirts and swing dancing (I think that’s when they did swing dancing?) sound fun to me.
8. Favorite form of social media?
9, What would you rather do without: internet (computer, phone, etc.) or dessert?
Oh boy, as much as I love the internet, I don’t think I could ever go without my beloved dessert.
10. What makes you unique?
I’m never a fan of this question… I never really know what to say so I’m going to copy Annette on this one. Simply put, I’m ME – that’s what makes me unique.
Ok, I’m going to be a rule breaker here (totally uncharacteristic of me, mind you), and skip the “tag you’re it” part of things. There’s far too many amazing bloggers out there, and I’m already indecisive enough as it is. If you’re wanting to participate in this fun little survey though, feel free! I tag you!
We’re off to hang out with my in-laws and meet Cody at work for lunch, so I’ll catch ya later!
What time do you wake up in the morning?
