This morning I was nominated for a Liebster Award! Woot woot! Miss Emily over at More Than Just Dessert nominated me and I’m feeling so honored! Below are the questions she asked me to answer, and then it will be my turn to nominate a few of my favorite, smaller bloggers!
1. Favorite vacation spot?
-Well naturally, I’m torn. I grew up vacationing at St. George Island, FL with my family, so I have lots of precious memories there. It’s also the place where Adam and I got engaged. See that cut there? That’s where it happened, at sunset, on the most perfect night. Afterwards I hopped in my private helicopter and took this picture.
Just kidding. I’ll have to do an engagement post sometime and show you the real deal.
BUT, we honeymooned at Lake Tahoe, California, and I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a more beautiful place!
Again, not my picture, but if you want to see a few of my favorite scenic photos from our trip, check out this blog post:
2. What is your go to workout?
I would have to say going for a long run. There’s just something about running that releases stress in a way that nothing else can! 3 miles is usually a solid stress reliever, but 5+ miles just feels AMAZING.
3. If you could eat one food everyday, what would it be?
I might need all day to think about this one, but off the top of my head I would say…mint M&M’s, sweet potato fries, or cheese and crackers. I know, healthy right?
4. Night owl or early bird?
Both. I hate staying up late, but I also hate waking up early. However, when I do wake up early, I love it, and when I stay up late I’m usually super productive.
5. What type of running shoes do you wear?
Brooks Ravenna 3’s.
6. What is one fitness goal you want to complete by the end of August?
Get back to running 8 minute miles. As in, not above 9 minute miles.
7. Favorite guilty pleasure?
Reality TV….Bachelorette, Kardashians, etc. You know, the healthy stuff.
8. What book are you currently reading, if any?
9. What inspired you to start blogging?
I’d say just being able to have an outlet to talk about my workouts, dog, and day to day schenanigans as openly and freely as I want. It’s ended up being another creative outlet, aside from photography, and I’m loving it so far. I really do enjoy writing, and finding my “voice.”
10. What is your dream job?
Other than being a stay at home home, one day, or a work from home mom, I would love to get back into more of the marketing/advertising/seo/creative industry. My biggest regret from college is that I switched from marketing to psychology.
11. Who are some of your idols? Why?
I wouldn’t consider them idols per say, but there are multiple people who I look up to and really admire. Pretty much anyone who has a passion for life, dreams bigs, and achieves those dreams…they’re on my list 🙂
Here are my nominations:
Jana at Happy Wife Healthy Life (I know, I know…still haven’t finished the one you tagged me in!)
All are fantastic blogs I frequent almost every day, and you should too! Here are your questions ladies:
1. Why did you start blogging? 2. What is your favorite part about blogging? 3. When you’re not blogging, what can you be found doing? 4. What is your favorite way to get your work out on? 5. What motivates you to stay healthy and active? 6. What are you most proud of in your life, thus far? 7. What goals do you have for yourself to accomplish by the end of the year? 8. What’s one thing you wish you could say to your younger self? 9. What is your favorite go-to recipe? 10. What is the funniest thing you’ve heard today? 11. What is something you are thankful for today?
And now, you’re probably wondering, “why is Tony Danza listed in the title of this post?”
Easy- because the song lyrics, “hold me closer tiny dancer” have been stuck in my head all day. Only, I’m 99% sure he doesn’t say “tiny dancer” but rather, “Tony Danza.” Hold me closer Tony Danza, indeed.
My husband and I always joke about Tony Danza, as well as…
Michael Jackson’s- Don’t Stop ‘Till You Get Enough. Pretty sure the chorus goes like this, “keep up, with the porn star, don’t stop ’till you get enough.” Whoa whoa whoa, what?? Yes. Now go listen to it on you tube, and tell me I’m not crazy!
Fleet Foxes- He Doesn’t Know Why. Pretty sure he’s singing, “there’s muffin….” Muffin?
Bruce Springstein’s- Blinded By The Light. Pretty sure he says, “blinded by the light…wrapped up like a douche in the middle of the night.” Say what?? Apparently this one is so misheard even Wikipedia had to mention it.
I’m shooting some 8th grade photos tonight, so I’m off to get everything ready! Hope everyone had a fabulous Tuesday! We’re almost halfway!
What song lyrics are you convinced aren’t really what they say?
