These are a Few of my Favorite Things :)

I have had a fever all darn day today, so I decided I needed to do something positive to keep my mind off of feeling crummy! Here is a favorite things blog! 
(Adapted from Kandyce at

1. What is your dream job?
Well of course, for those who know me, I have ALWAYS wanted to be a teacher! But I suppose my less realistic dream job would be wedding planning! 

2. What do you order in a coffee shop?
Usually a Chai Latte or Vanilla Steamer if its cold out, or a Tazo shaken ice
Tazo® Shaken Iced Passion Tea d passion tea lemonade when its hot out! Clearly not a coffee drinker!

3. What is your most important beauty secret?
Um, shower I guess?! Haha, this isn't an area I have a lot of interest in. I will wear make up if I need to, but I don't do much else! I guess I would say my biggest thing is learning how to dress for your body, and carry yourself with confidence! I think it makes you look more beautiful than pretty much any secret product out there!

4. If you had an all expenses paid vacation, where would you go?
 Hmm, this is a tough one! I have actually been to about 15 couttries so far, and can't wait to explore more! A trip of my dreams would either be Australia/New Zealand, OR traveling around South/Latin America. My parents and I have been talking about doing a Panama Canal Cruise in the near future, and I could NOT be more hopeful about this!!

5. What is your adult drink of choice?
I can really appreciate me a good beer! My preference is probably a Pyramid Hefeweizen. If I am trying to stay light I like Corona Light, or Coors Light! If I want a mixed drink I love me some fruity margaritas! 

6. If a genie popped up in your lap right now and offered you 3 wishes,  what would you ask?
1. A full time job for me and dbf both, that we enjoy! 
2. Good health for my family and friends! 
3.  Enough practical space and ability to foster rescue dogs! 

7. If you could only have breakfast, lunch, dinner or dessert foods for the rest of your life, what would you pick?
This is a really difficult question! I am inclined to lean towards lunch. My lunches vary a lot, someday's pasta, baked potatoes, meat, turkey burgers, sandwiches, yogurt, cottage cheese, and always fruit. SO much variety, and so much yummy!
8. If you were Hello Kitty, what color hair bow would you wear? 
Well pink for course! I always say that pink is my favorite color, but I hate to wear it(not good with my skin tone!) I typically wear blues/purples/white!

9. What is your biggest makeup pet peeve?
Hmm... putting it on?! Lol. If I could never wear make up, and always have one-shade skin, that would be awesome! 

10. If you could only wear one piece of jewelry for the rest of your life, what would it be?
I suppose a wedding ring, when the time is right!
11. What one talent do you wish you had?
I really like singing, so I guess I wish I was better at it? And sports as well! I try to stay in shape, but obviously it would be nice if it all came a little easier to me!

12. If you had to live in one pair of shoes which would it be?
I wish I could be the feminine girl who would live in some pumps, but realistically, I can't even live in pumps for more than an hour. If I could only wear one pair of shoes, it would be my running shoes. They are cute, practical, comfortable, and actually good for my feet. :)

13. If you could look into the future, would you? And what would you like to know?
Probably not. Life may not always be easy, but I wouldn't want to spoil any surprises! 

14. Who is your biggest celebrity crush?
 I have always had a major soft spot for Leo! Others favorites include Channing Tatum, Brad Pitt (circa Troy), Eric Dane, and Josh Duhame!  

15. What made you start blogging?
Mainly, I wanted to share my journey as a new runner.  I was hoping I could inspire some others, and also help keep myself on track with running and healthy eating! I think keeping a blog gives you a great place to organize your thoughts, get great feedback and possibly motivate others along the way!

  1. You know, every answer could have been mine on this one. Thinkalikes. Honestly, what really got me though was the space for the rescue dogs (well that was the main one stuck out over the rest being practically identical answers). DH keeps telling me he'd love to own enough land to have as many rescue dogs as I could handle. Ahh, doggies warm my heart :)
