Today is the first day of the Blog me MAYbe blogfest, hosted by the fabulous Sara McClung - a little something she pulled together, to keep all of us participating, motivated to blog on a weekly schedule.
And since it's Tuesday, that means the topic is: May I tell you something about myself?
I snagged the cool alphabet survey Katy Upperman posted on her blog last week, as I thought this would be a great way to share a few things about me.
Day one in the Blog Me MAYbe blogfest - and here goes:
A is for age: Today is my birthday - I am now...36.
B is for breakfast today: Haven't had anything yet - but I'm hoping for some pancakes!
C is for currently craving: Not gonna lie, would love a ball park hot dog and garlic fries right now...we may catch an Angels game this week, so I might just get my wish!
D is for dinner tonight: Since my husband I are in LA right now, we're having dinner at one of my favorite sushi restaurants: Yamashiro's. Love, love, love, this place!
E is for favorite type of exercise: Running, for sure. It's been awhile, but I also love CrossFit. Skiing and golf are favorites, as well!
F is for an irrational fear: Needles. *shudder*
G is for gross food: Not a huge fan of liver or any other entrails.
H is for hometown: I was born and raised in Renton, Wa. (about 20 minutes SE from Seattle).
I is for something important: My family. And my writing.
J is for current favorite jam: Yikes, not a huge jam fan - but if I had to pick, it would be my Aunt's homemade Guava jam from Hawaii!
K is for kids: Sadly, we only have the 4-legged kind, but not for lack of wanting the human kind. Never thought it would be this hard...but hopefully someday!
L is for current location: LA, California, in my hotel room!
M is for the most recent way you spent money: We went to Disneyland yesterday - it's been 28 years since I've been, and it was absolutely one of the best days I've ever had!
N is for something you need: A way to bring money in without having to go back to my day job!
O is for occupation: Creative development manager in the marketing department at T-Mobile. Aspiring author.
P is for pet peeve: Angry drivers. People who cut in line. Unruly children.
Q is for a quote: “Do one thing everyday that scares you.” ― Eleanor Roosevelt
R is for random fact about you: I constantly leave various lights on around the house for no real apparent reason, which drives my husband batty - he's always following behind me, and turning them off.
S is for favorite healthy snack: My morning smoothies made of: Kale, mango, banana, almonds, protein powder, coconut oil, and coconut water = YUM!!
T is for favorite treat: Haagen Dazs Chocolate Chocolate-Chip ice cream, and Haribo gummi bears (but only the red and the green ones).
U is for something that makes you unique: I am a handful of scuba dives short of my Dive Masters certification. I played the violin for 12 years. And was a gymnast for 14.
V is for favorite vegetable: Squash, peppers, and broccoli.
W is for today’s workout: Walking the infinite expanse of Disneyland!
X is for X-rays you’ve had: My heel (nasty heel spur from running!) and my teeth.
Y is for yesterday’s highlight: Amazing dinner with my husband at Osteria Mozza, in LA!
Z is for your time zone: Pacific.
