Seeing as this blog is still very new–I don’t think I’ve even hit 30 posts yet–I thought I’d do something a little different today to tell you a little bit more about me. And, I’d love for you to pick some of the questions from this survey and tell me something I don’t know about you in the comments! 🙂
I’m pretty sure that the age of blogger surveys has come and gone. When I Googled “A to Z blogger survey” and searched on my favorite blogs, all of the posts were several years old… but I can’t resist a survey, no matter how out of fashion they are. I can’t be the only one who loves filling out forms and checking off lists, right? So type A, so satisfying 😛
So let’s jump in!
A – Age: 22 (soon to be 23!).
B – Biggest Fears: Heights + deep water + semi trucks.
C – Current Time: 9:23 a.m.
D – Dinner Tonight: Crustless spinach and ricotta quinoa quiches with salads.
E – Exercise: Walking, yoga, and strength training. I don’t have a gym membership currently so it’s all done from my living room (except walking, of course).
F – Favorite Song: It depends on what mood I’m in! Lately I’m listening to “Good Day for Marrying You” by Dave Barnes a lot. My favorite genre of music is new age piano, so I listen to Liz Story, George Winston, and Ludovico Einaudi on the regular.
G – Gross Food: Beets, cauliflower, or blue cheese. Eeeeyuck.
H – Hometown: I was born in Columbus, Ohio; then we lived in New Jersey for a few years; but, we moved to Edina, Minnesota when I was 7 and I definitely consider it to be my hometown.
I – In Love With: My fiancé, Eric! And my cat, Pandora, but don’t tell E 😛
J – Jealous of: I try not to want to be anyone but myself. Buuuuut sometimes I wish I could be a popular travel blogger so that we could snag some funded trips around the world… I love to travel, but it’s so expensive!
K – Kids: Not now, but definitely in the future! We’d like to have a house first, though.
L – Current Location: Sunnyvale, California. Although this time next week, I’ll be back in Edina–probably making a run to Whole Foods to grab some things for Thanksgiving dinner.
M – Middle Name: Anne. It’s my mom’s, aunt’s, and grandma’s middle name as well, and if I have a daughter it will be her middle name, too.
N – Number of Siblings: 2. I have a younger sister, Shannon, who’s 21 and a younger half-brother, Liam, who’s 3! How’s that for an age difference?!
O – One Wish: Currently, to move back to Minnesota. I know it’s going to happen soon… just not soon enough, haha.
P – Pet Peeve: This is so random, but cotton rubbing against itself or being torn apart, like when someone tears a cotton ball in half. It’s like nails on a chalkboard for me!
Q – Quote: “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss it, you’ll land among the stars” – Les Brown
R – Reason to Smile: So many! I have a loving, supportive family and bunch of friends, I’m engaged to the love of my life, and I’m moving home relatively soon. And then we’re getting a cat, so this time next year I’ll be blogging with a purring fur child in my lap 😀
S – Favorite Snack: Currently either everything rice crackers from Whole Foods (so tasty!) with hummus, Italian roasted chickpeas, or good old banana and peanut butter.
T – Time You Woke Up: I woke up to Eric’s alarm at 6:50 this morning, but then I fell back asleep and woke up to the neighbor child screaming at 8:48 a.m. I definitely take advantage of my days off–I’m a morning person so 9 a.m. is late for me!
U – What Makes You Unique: Hmmm, quite a few things. Something that I get a lot of comments on is my fingernails! I have veryyy thick, hard nails that look like I got a French manicure when I haven’t trimmed them in a while (even though I rarely paint my nails). On the downside, I scratch myself all the time because of how stiff they are! I’m actually wearing a bandage on my thumb right now from scratching myself yesterday.
V – Vacation Destination: We’ve been debating where to go for our honeymoon–which we’ll probably take in early 2019–and currently we’re planning to do a combo Australia/Bali trip! Originally I wanted to go to Bora Bora, but we’d spend our whole budget just to get there…
X – X-rays You’ve Had: A few for my back (I have scoliosis) and for my jaw, at the orthodontist.
Y – Yesterday’s Highlight: Playing with the 55-200mm camera lens I got for my last birthday but never really used. It takes amazing food photos! I have to get used to standing back when I take photos, though.
Z – Zodiac Sign: Sagittarius.
I’d love to know, though: What are you having for dinner tonight? What’s your biggest wish at the moment? And feel free to answer any of the other survey questions as well!
