You can call all you want, but there's no one home and you're not gonna reach my telephone...

I've decided to play a little game called, Getting To Know You Sunday? I think. I'm too lazy to go look, but thanks to Brit at Simplicity in Baltimore. I loved these questions and just HAD to do them.

The Questions . . .

1 - Why did you start blogging?
A year or so ago I came across fitness and workout blogs and loved what those girls were doing- I loved reading about what they were doing to keep fit and all of the recipes they posted on their blog, and I wanted a blog, too! My blog has kinda morphed into more than just fitness/nutrition now- It's definitely a hodge podge of everything! And I enjoy that more!

2 - Who's the one blog friend that you would want to meet most in "real life"?
I'd love to meet everyone! (Minus the freaks) How do I freakin' choose?? If I must choose I think I'd have to say:

* Kelly @ Fitting Back In (and her mom, Big Pissy!)- because I actually kinda DO know her in real life. We went to high schools in towns right next to each other and have mutual friends, but have never actually met! I know she MUST be a BLAST! Kelly- let's work on this mmkay? geez. :-)

* Elizabeth @ Musing Experiences- She has Rosie, her Chihuahua. Our pups need to play together, for ONE. For two, I can just honestly tell how positive of a person she is through her blog alone. It's amazing how something so simple can lift you up, and she does that for me. As weird as that may sound. Thanks, Liz. :-)

* Kate @ Healthy Diva Eats- We have so much in common that I think we'd get along perfectly in real life and have SO much fun eating sushi, working out together, shopping??! I truly think I need a friend like her in my life. I wish I had known her before I left the D.C. area!!

* Blair @ Reasonably Swanky- The girl is HILARIOUS. I'm all about surrounding myself with people who make me laugh and I can make them laugh, so I would definitely need to meet her. Enough said.

* Liz @ Fit Lizzio's Blog - One of my longest bloggie friends- for good reason. She's awesome, fit, sexy, hot, funny and gives advice like you wouldn't believe- GREAT advice for that matter! She knows all there is to know (in MY opinion) about fitness and I love her attitude.

* Life is Better In Heels- I don't know her name, and I'm not sure if she reads MY blog, but I freaking LOVE hers! When I read her blog, I feel like I'm reading about myself! She's funny and tells it like it is.

3 - Why are you always concerned with losing that "extra 10 pounds" when chances are your husband/boyfriend/friends tell you that you look just fine the way you are?
I wish I only had those last 10 pounds to lose, but I'm getting there (20 pounds down since January!) People may say I'm fine the way I am- and in a way, yes I am. I want to lose weight so I'm healthy, so I can do things in my life longer, so I can feel better after a tough workout because my endorphins are rushing. I want to "lose those last 10" so my clothes fit better and I can walk with my head held high into a crowded room and feel like I'm awesome!

4 - What's the one thing you wish guys could understand about you?
I wish they'd understand that I'm a straight-forward woman, who likes to put everything out in the open-I don't mind being told it's not going to work- but don't ignore me. Also, understand that I'm an only child- I like your attention. I don't have to have it constantly, but I like to be TOLD that I'm appreciated. Maybe that has to do with insecurities as well, but at least I can admit it.

5 - Tattoos. How many do you have and how many are visible when you wear your "everyday" clothes?
I have one lonesome tattoo of a lipstick kiss on my left shoulder. See here. You can't see it everyday unless I, duh, have on a sleeveless top- WHICH I don't usually wear to work. I love where it's at because what's the point of getting a tattoo is NO one EVER sees it unless you're naked? I personally think it'd be a waste to get one where no one could see it unless they asked. Why do MOST (Note: I said, MOST. :-) people get tattoos? To show off their personality and their likes, etc.

6 - What was the best year of your life and why?
Very, very tough question. I've had a great life. High school was fabulous, college was a journey of a lifetime.....I'd have to say the year 2006. I graduated from college, had a kick-ass college graduation PARTAY, 4th of July this year was AMAZING and I met a man who changed my life as I know it- and in some ways, this year could also be my worst for that very same reason. if you've ever had "the one that got away"- you can understand.

7 - Name three things you would do if you were a man for one day. Enjoy the fact that I can have short hair and get ready in the morning in 15 minutes. Take my girlfriend/wife on a random dinner date. Manscape (haha).

8 - What's your alcoholic drink of choice that usually raises a few eyebrows?
Wouldn't say anything I drink tends to raise eyebrows, but my drinks of choice are usually Pinot Noir, Vodka & Something or Mich Ultra. Depends on my mood.

So funny, I always say 2006 was the best and worst year of my life too! That is so awesome you have lost 20 lbs since January. I think I finally realized today that I need to lose about 15-20 lbs myself. None of my clothes fit and it's frustrating. I am carrying around a lot more weight than I should be for my frame. Any tips??

We MUST work it out - I want to meet you too and can't believe we haven't crossed paths yet - too funny! I love your blog! Great answers to these questions - these were toughies! i'm over here going which IS my favorite year?? So many ups and downs with each one. :)

I wish I could go get some sushi right now with you !!! Would be the sh**!!!


Love you beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Elizabeth said...

YOU ARE SO SWEET! Thank you so much for thinking of me! I totally would love to meet you!!! :-) Thanks for being so awesome!! There are many things about ourselves that we have in common! I would love for Brady and Rosie to meet, but most importantly...US! :-)

I'm so flattered that you'd like to meet me in real life :) We could take some kick-butt workout classes if we ever do!

Great post. I like that they aren't generic questions. It's always fun getting to know more about the person behind the blog. And I am a reader--I just don't come out of the wood work very often. Need to be better about it :)

Kelly said...

This was fun to read :-) WAY TO GO GIRL with losing 20 pounds since January. You seriously rock :-D

Jules said...

I just wanted to say that I love you blog and I’m so glad that you found mine. I’m following you now too and look forward to reading your posts! I tried to come over here last night but blogger was all messed up.

I love that your blog is a hodge podge and that is exactly how I would describe mine. Congrats on your recent weight loss and I’ve been on a mission myself since February. I still have a long way to go, but it’s nice to have the blogging community to keep you motivated.

Love your honesty on the guy question and I’m an only child too. Love pinot noir ;)

Juliana said...
