20 Questions for Wednesday:

1) What is one of your favorite ways to spend a Saturday?

A yummy breakfast. A nice long walk with Ella. A trip to the Farmers Market. A sweaty workout/run. A few of my favorite meals. And a movie and blogging to cap off the night!

2) List your top three favorite TV shows.
This is tough! I follow a ton of shows! But my top three of ALL time would have to be:

-The Office

-LOST (oh how I miss you!)

-A 3 way tie between: Parks and Rec/30 Rock/Modern Family
3) Would you rather be in pictures or take them?

I like being in pictures with my family to document memories and moments…but I’ve really developed a passion for taking pictures ever since I started blogging! I’ve really come to appreciate a good quality photograph!

 4) Why do you blog?

It’s my outlet for expression! There are so many parts of me I never felt comfortable sharing with others until I entered the blogging community! Now I have found so many people who share my passions and values and have developed such great relationships because of it! I also love the interaction and feedback…the comments sections is one of my favorite aspects!

5) Share five websites that you visit regularly…

- Twitter

- Daily Mile

- Pinterest

- Formspring

- Healthy Aperture

6) If you could have lunch with one person from your Twitter list who would it be?

Can I have a lunch convention? Cause there are SO many people I would love to meet! Not only would I love to meet all my blogging buddies in real life…but some of the celebrities I follow would  be pretty cool too! I would LOOOVE to meet ELLEN! Plus she’s vegan so I’m sure we could agree on a really yummy lunch place!

  7) List a few of your favorite snacks.

-cereal fruit bowls with almond milk

-sweet potatoes

-carrots with pb and rice cakes

-homemade scuffins

-veggies with dip

-yogurt messes

8 ) Do you have a pet? If so, what kind?

I think you all know Ella by now!


She’s my sweet, little yorkie!!!

9) Which three material possessions would you struggle to live without?

I hate to admit this stuff (it makes me seem so materialistic!!!):

-my computer

-my phone

-my TV

#firstworldproblems to the extreme….

10) What’s your favorite drink?

I actually don’t drink nearly as many liquids as I should! But when I do drink I reach for water, veggie juice, or almond milk!

     11) Do you enjoy cooking?

I LOVE IT! I only wish I had more time to dedicate to it! If I didn’t have school I could be rolling out recipes 24/7!

12) Do you have children? 

If you count pup’s as children…then yes (see question 8)! But honestly, I DO NOT want kids when I’m older! #sorryimnotsorry

13) What are your favorite hobbies?


-being active




14) Would you consider yourself to be shy or outgoing?

I’m pretty outgoing I’d say! I love being in front of people, interacting, and having conversation! But don’t get be wrong… I love my alone time too and definitely embrace my inner “shy” person!

 15) If you could change one thing about yourself, what would you change?

I would make myself be less hard on myself. I sometimes set to high of standards for myself and then cause my stress a lot of stress in trying to achieve them/live up to them.

16) Who is your favorite actor?

Don’t have one actually…there are SO many good ones out there. I really like Liam Neeson though! (Schindler’s List is one of my favorite meetings!!)

17) What’s the coolest thing you’ve done this week?

Only had one day of school Winking smile

18) Do you live near your family or far from them?

I live really close to all of my dad’s family but my mom’s family mostly lives on the West coast. I’m jealous LOL.

19) List three of your talents. 


-Leading People

-Public Speaking

20) What is your greatest attribute?

      My drive and determination. When I put my mind to something, I get it done.
