I decided to take a note from Alison at Daily Moves and Grooves and steal parts of this little questionnaire, “Questions Nobody Asks.” I picked out some of my favorites, there are a ton!
5. What’s your favorite childhood TV show?
Boy Meets World and Lizzie McGuire…I was a Disney Channel kid!
6.When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I was into Animal Planet and I really really wanted to be a vet.
10.If you could hire any actor to portray you in a movie, who would you chose?
Probably Julia Roberts. I think she’s smart, classy, and funny!
11.If you could play any instrument, which would you play?
The piano. I’m planning on living vicariously through my kids and making them play. Fingers crossed they’re actually good.
13.If you could live in one city for the rest of your life, where would you live?
I think I would live somewhere in Colorado. I’ve only visited once, but I fell in love. Have you ever been somewhere and just felt like you belonged there? I feel like I might also belong in Paris…
These pics are from my trip to CO about 10 years ago with my grandparents and my cousin. We went a walked around Vail and I fell in love! No comments on my short hair…it was a bad decision.
26. What is your song of the week?
Selena Gomez – Good For You. This song is motivating me to work hard at the gym this week.
28. When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper?
I LOVE handwritten letters! I had a girl’s craft night at a friend’s house recently and we made 4th of July greeting cards. I sent one to my grandpa for his birthday and he loved it!
Challenge for the week – write a handwritten note to someone! You don’t have to mail it, just stick it in their car, office, purse, pocket…it’s such an easy way to make someone smile and remind them they’re loved!
Side note – I’m obsessed with stationary. I love writing little notes so any time I see stationary on clearance I snatch it up! Here’s a little bit of my collection.
37. Sugar cookies or snickerdoodles?
Snickerdoodles…specifically, Nana’s snickerdoodles. They’re a yearly Christmas treat for me.
I forgot to mention that I went outlet shopping in Nashville. One of my favorite purchases was this adorable lunch box. Can you tell I love it?
The Vera Bradley Outlet was having a 50% off sale so I got this for way cheap! Here’s the same kind in a different pattern (super cute!). I love Vera!
The hubs and I are wrapping up summer with a beach vacation with R&M up to North Carolina over Labor Day weekend. We’ve been pretty slack on our diet lately, he’s been traveling a lot (and we all know what my diet looks like when that happens), and we haven’t been meal planning like we should.
We’ve decided to stick to a healthier diet for the next month, mostly based on fruits, veggies and protein. And cutting out alcohol. And consistently going to the gym.
The beach or any vacation is such a great motivation to really analyze your diet and exercise routine and that’s exactly what we did while we were in Nashville. We had a lot of great talks last weekend on vacation and we are on the same page about cleaning up our diet and committing to making our bodies healthier and stronger!
I’ll be sharing some of my meal plans and what we’re packing for lunch, as well as some ways we’re trying to incorporate healthier foods on a budget!
Has anyone tried (or know anyone who has tried) this Whole30 Program? Check it out, what do you guys think?
I realize that I have a problem…I’m not good at remembering to take pictures. Clearly my post is lacking in pictures today. I try to keep a good balance of pictures and text here because I love giving you guys a visual glimpse into my life and a visual to connect with! I’m going to try to work on that, so be prepared for some more pictures!
In lieu of real pictures today, I’m going to leave you with some pretty picture quotes…I love quotes.
This one is in honor of Blondie’s upcoming birthday…can’t wait to celebrate her!
Answer some of the “Questions Nobody Asks” and tell me something about you!
Any great recipes to share for my month of clean eating? Particularly how to incorporate more veggies?
Don’t forget to write someone a little handwritten note to tell them how much they mean to you!
