Janetha at Meals and Moves did a great a to z this week and thought I’d play too. It’s a rainy, rainy Tuesday morning here so posting some fun me facts was just what I felt like.
So here goes……
A is for age: Wouldn’t it be great to be 5 again and spend all day singing songs, doing art projects, and playing on the swings. That’s not the age I am, but the one I’d like to be today
B is for breakfast today: Cereal! This is a rarity, I don’t usually have cereal for breakfast but it hit the spot this morning. Special K with a banana and almond milk.
C is for currently craving: This. Will you make it for me, please?
D is for dinner tonight: Not sure yet, but it will def involve a sweet potato cause that’s my other “currently craving.” I’m getting a glass of wine with a friend tonight, but will have to wait to eat dinner until I’m home since we’re not eating out this month.
E is for favorite type of exercise: Swimming. Love. It clears my head and my whole body feels great afterwards. Not to mention, swimming means a post-workout dip in the hot tub, which is soo nice.
F is for an irrational fear: The bridge collapsing while I’m driving over it. Ever since that bridge collapsed in Minnesota a few years ago, I hold my breath when we drive over one here, convinced it might collapse. Totally irrational.
G is for gross food: Blue cheese. Disgusting. I can’t even eat anything that has touched blue cheese. So gross.
H is for hometown: A subburb near San Francisco.
I is for something important: Family. Puppy. Spending time outside. Appreciating the simple things in life.
J is for current favorite jam: “Stronger (what doesn’t kill you)” by Kelly Clarkson. I can’t help but feel more positive when I hear it.
K is for kids: Yes, eventually. But just one for now, my loveable pup, Charlie. He has a blog too…
L is for current location: I’m at work, sitting at my desk. Hate admitting that, as I should probs be doing something other than blogging…..
M is for the most recent way you spent money: A tall coffee from Starbucks, sipped on my commute to work.
N is for something you need: A haircut. Hello split ends.
O is for occupation: Manage a nonprofit program that helps homeless kids. On weekends, I’m a juggler (aka, juggle doggie, friends, family, exercise, etc). I’ve had a few other professions (politics, teaching, etc) so we’ll see what other occupations I’ll eventually add to my list.
P is for pet peeve: This is really random, but lately it’s my pet peeve when I see people feeding stale bread to the ducks. I know you MEAN well, but come on people, it makes then sick! And then they poop all over and it’s just disgusting.
Q is for a quote: I’m obsessed with quotes, so there’s no way I can pick a favorite. My mom sent me this one recently: “Friends are like bras. Close to your heart and there for support.” Lol
R is for random fact about you: I wear flip flops just about all the time (unless I’m at work….but even then I sometimes keep them on). It’s not that I mind other shoes, it’s just that I like the feeling of my toes being free and they are so comfy. I’ll probably regret this later in life, but until then, flip flops are my shoe of choice. It’s rainy today and I still haven’t put my other “work” shoes on yet….
S is for favorite healthy snack: Almonds and raisins. Though I usually eat too many, so they probably can’t be considered healthy anymore.
T is for favorite treat: Chocolate ice cream. In a cone, of course.
U is for something that makes you unique: Freckles! Maybe you can’t tell from my pics, but I have a lot of “angel kisses” as my mom used to call them.
V is for favorite vegetable: Broccoli. Roasted, steamed, stirfryed, anyway you cook it up, just give it to me!
W is for today’s workout: 30 minutes on the treadmill this morning….while watching a Bethenny Ever After rerun (she’s getting to be a bit of a diva, don’t you think?).
X is for X-rays you’ve had: None, no broken bones (knock on wood). I did get a cat scan once….I’m a little bit of a hypochondriac and was convinced my headache was a brain tumor. I’m fine, of course, lol.
Y is for yesterday’s highlight: I went shopping and found some cute shirts on sale. Morning swim. Cuddle on the couch with J.
Z is for your time zone: Pacific. We’re just waking up when you guys are well on your day.
Ok, your turn! Pick a letter and tell me something about YOU
