Hey guys!  How do you like the new layout?  I was sick all week last week, so I had a ton of time just laying around the house.  I'm sure there are still bugs that I'll be working out, but I really like my mosaic Greek key design.

Next order of business- I've been tagged!  Madelyn from Reading Runner Girl tagged me in this fun ABC post.  If you haven't already, make some time to stop over at Madelyn's blog.  She posts book reviews and updates on her training for her first marathon!

So now that I've officially been tagged, here are my ABC's:

A.  Attached or Single?

Attached to my hubby, George.

B.  Best Friend

This is such a hard question! I have many friends that I would consider my besties.  Emily L., Sarah, Allie, Kristin, Ashley, and Aly come to mind first. 

C.  Cake or Pie?

I would probably have to go with pie, but only on the condition that it comes with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.  

D.  Day of Choice?

Saturday mornings are the greatest.  Your weekend has just started, you have the choice to sleep in or wake up early, and you can take your time drinking your morning coffee.

E.  Essential Item?

Smith's Rosebud Salve.  It is the only lip stuff that isn't waxy and doesn't make my lips peel.  I love the kind in the tube and the mint as well.  You can buy it at Sephora.

F.  Favorite Color?

Blue.  I'm currently a little obsessed with navy and coral together.
I would dress like her everyday if I had more money and motivation.  I wear a lot of running stuff instead.

G.  Gummy Bears or Worms?

Probably neither?  I'm a much bigger fan of chocolate.  I can, however, consume a whole bag of Swedish Fish in one sitting.  

H.  Hometown?


I.  Favorite Indulgence?

Flourless chocolate torte from Stone Creek.  I get all slobbery just thinking about it.

J.  January or July?

July!  I love sitting outside at restaurants, wearing flip flops, and getting some sun on my face. Grilling out while playing fetch with Gracie in the backyard while sipping on a beer is pretty much the best thing ever.

K.  Kids

Even though I have a very extensive "Kiddos" board on Pinterest, George and I aren't ready yet.  I'll tackle that topic in 2014. :)

L.  Life Isn't Complete Without?

A dog.  Gracie has brought George and I so much joy, and I can't imagine life without her.  Dogs are the best listeners and offer an endless supply of snuggles and kisses. 
I have been a dog lover from the very beginning.  This is me and our family dog, Skip.

M.  Marriage Date?

August 25th, 2012.

Click here to see more of our wedding day.

N.  Number of Brothers/Sisters?

None.  I'm an only child.  

O.  Oranges or Apples?

Sliced Honeycrisp apples... with peanut butter.
I will be in a lifelong relationship with peanut butter.

P.  Phobias?

Spiders, pooping my pants during a race (I've read some horror stories), and things that slither.

Q. Quotes

R.  Reasons to smile?

Waking up and realizing you still have another hour to sleep, iced tea, talking and laughing with loved ones, getting a great deal, post run endorphins, I mean...I could go on forever.

S.  Season of choice?

Any season but winter.  I don't do cold.  I hate shoveling snow, driving in snow, and standing in snow.

T.  Tag People

Ashley and Stacy from Are You Guys, Like Twins?

U.  Unknown Facts About Me?

I'm working on a blog post on this topic.  I can't give it all away until then.

V.  Vegetable?

Artichokes!  Love them on pizza.  I also can't get enough yellow pepper, carrots (& hummus), and cucumber.   
I want to try this Grilled Artichoke and Lemon Aioli Recipe

W.  Worst Habit?

Being so much of a perfectionist that when finished,  I'm rarely happy with what I've done.  Wow, that's deep.  
I will also hit "touch up" on the dryer anywhere from 2 to 99 times before actually folding the laundry.  I am a picker.  I pick all my nail polish off if there's just one chip.

X.  X-ray or Ultrasound?

Um, really?  I guess I'd have to say ultrasound.  Ultrasounds make me think of babies, and that's a happy thing.  Also, when your ER patient goes to ultrasound, they're gone for a while, and it gives you time to get caught up on your other patients.  Being a radiologist's wife, you would think I'd have a better answer for this.

Y.  Your Favorite Food?

This is so hard.  The first thing that comes to mind is a big bowl of chopped fresh fruit, but then I realize that this is lame.  I LOVE fast food, but never get it because I'm convinced that it will give me cancer or Hepatitis A.  Sushi and Mexican will always be my top picks for dinners out.  I have an unhealthy obsession with guacamole.

Z.  Zodiac Sign?

Aquarius.  I don't really pay attention to my horoscope, unless it's a good one. :)

Have a wonderful, relaxing Sunday everyone!


  1. Love the new design! And so fun getting to know you!

  2. Everything you just wrote in the worst habits section is totally me. I never use nail polish remover, I am a perfectionist beyond belief, and I hate folding clothes so I avoid it by keeping it in the dryer. It drives my OCD clean-freak boyfriend crazy! Happy almost Anniversary by the way; your wedding video was so beautiful. Thanks for sharing it!

  3. Lovin the new design! Omg your wedding video!!!! HUH amazing! For reals!!!! Sorry you were sick all week. I love this ABCs idea it's great!

  4. Heck yes peanut butter forever!
