Today I’m taking a queue from other bloggers who have been posting the A-Z survey. Here we go:
A is for age: Somewhere between 30-40!
B is for breakfast today: a smoothie–banana, strawberries, pineapple, coconut milk (not a fan!), chia seeds, Garden of Life RAW protein powder)
C is for currently craving: Nothing – I just ate lunch.
D is for dinner tonight: Something quick and easy–maybe my usual breakfast toast.
E is for favorite type of exercise: Depends on my mood but it’s usually either power yoga, a run, Spin class, weights, or a long walk with the dogs.
F is for an irrational fear: Sharks. Because in my day-to-day life in Wisconsin my chances of encountering sharks are really high.
G is for gross food: Wal-Mart chicken–that’s a story for another post.
H is for hometown: Waukesha, WI
I is for something important: My Quality Assurance Guy, Kostas and Tucker (dogs!), Family, happiness.
J is for current favorite jam: The answer should probably be a song, but I’ll go with the food kind–my dad’s homemade raspberry preserves.
K is for kids: Kostas and Tucker–fur-kids. And proud Aunt to three good kids: Julia, Luke, and John.
L is for current location: Madison, WI
M is for the most recent way you spent money: A new pair of Mizuno Wave Rider running shoes.
N is for something you need: A personal assistant. Kidding, but gosh that would be nice!
O is for occupation: Hard to explain, but basically a COO-type…
P is for pet peeve: When strangers at the grocery store comment to me about items I’m buying.
Q is for a quote: “A woman is like a tea-bag–you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water.” Eleanor Roosevelt (having a back-pocket quote comes in handy–you never know when you might be playing Table Topics and need to quickly say a quote!)
R is for random fact about you: I was on Oprah! I submitted a question for Rachel Ray–it was Rachel’s first time on the show (and Cesar the Dog Whisperer) and I got to meet with the producer at a local Chicago grocery store (used to live in Chicago), and was filmed shopping for frozen dinners (which I didn’t and don’t do). Then I got to ask Rachel for her tips for someone cooking for 1 or 2. Her answer was chili–chili on everything. Chili, chili dogs, nachos, etc.
S is for favorite healthy snack: Apples!
T is for favorite treat: Apples and peanut butter!
U is for something that makes you unique: I have ZERO sweet tooth. I can’t remember the last time I ate chocolate, ice cream, etc. I love to bake and push my goods on others!
V is for favorite vegetable: Spinach and squash.
W is for today’s workout: Jari Love Get Ripped 1000–it’s at home waiting for me after work.
X is for X-rays you’ve had: Too many! Collar bone (x2), fingers, foot/heel, teeth.
Y is for yesterday’s highlight: Long walk with the dogs–a sunny, warm March day.
Z is for your time zone: Central.
Your turn–pick a letter and comment with your answer!
Great Eleanor Roosevelt quote….and you’re Oprah story is awesome. When I lived in Chicago, I tried sooooooo hard to get audience tickets, but no such luck.
It was a really random and cool experience to go to the taping.
No sweet tooth!? I’m so jealous. 🙂
I love apples and pb too!!! Or apples and almond butter. or apples and cinnamon. Ok, I love apples too 😉
F- LOL! you must have seen Jaws at an early age.
R – So random fact I just realized a year or two ago – I have lived in WI cities on Lake Michigan my whole life but have never been on a boat on the Lake. That’s so wrong! Bucket list!
Yes – I remember watching Jaws when I was little. I’m always convinced there’s a shark waiting for me in the ocean. In Hawaii the hotel beach where I was staying had a “local” shark named Louie who would cruise around the surfers. You can bet I kept my toes in the sand.
I like all your apples. And I have a thing for baking and pushing my goods on others as well!! Lol. Although I’m not COMPLETELY immune.
I love this! F made me laugh out loud, O is SO COOL (!!!!!), and P I’m totally with you on!
Yes! I love these surveys and learning fun facts about bloggers!
You were on Oprah! So cool! A friend of mine was on her very last Favorite Things show! She has a cute little VW beetle now and sparkly Ugg boots- and so does her mom, since she went with her!
I really want to know what people say to you at the grocery store!!
I think I’m going to do a post about the comments at the grocery store!
T is for favorite treat: Hummus & Pretzel Thins -OR- PB M&Ms
You’ve got sweet and salty covered!
