I found this on an old post on Amanda's blog-Running with Spoons.  Sometimes, I will check out the "recommended posts" at the bottom of blog posts to see what my current faves blogged about in the past.  I thought this was such a fun post, that I wanted to copy/play along too. :)

A is for age: 31 for me...and loving it!

B is for breakfast today: Today, I had a lighter breakfast.  Skoop and a sandwich thin with local honey on it.  I try not to eat a ton in the mornings since I workout in the evenings...I fuel up at lunch. :)

C is for currently craving: Froyo or Ice Cream...I love them both!!

D is for dinner tonight: I am heading to a friend's house for dinner.  She is making steak tacos!!  Yummy!!  I made a corn and veggie rice side to go with it.

E is for favorite type of exercise: Running! It can be done anywhere at anytime.  I love to get out and clear my head or go for a run with friends and laugh along the way.  Bonus-it is a great workout!!

F is for irrational fear: That someone is in my backseat.  Stupid Urban Legend...I always check my rear view mirror!!  
G is for gross food:Eggplant, Olives, and Cottage Cheese are all definite no go's for me.  I'm willing to try almost anything once!

H is for hometown: Amarillo, TX-you've probably passed through there on a road trip. :)

I is for something important: Faith-it will get you through anything!

J is for current favorite jam: Pineapple Jalapeno-because what could be a better combo?!? 

K is for kids: Kids are great.  I'll be a happy and wonderful aunt someday!

L is for current location: On my couch watching the Royals on television.

M is for the most recent way you spent money: I bought floor mats and a medicine ball for our home gym tonight.  It is coming along!!

N is for something you need: I need to relax and not stress about things out of my control.

O is for occupation:  I am a boring cubicle worker at a financial institution.

P is for pet peeve: Running late-I hate to be late to places.  I feel like it is disrespectful to those you are meeting.

Q is for a quote:  None truer than this...

R is for random fact about you: I am super high strung, but I am super low maintenance.  I don't even brush my hair since I always wear it curly!!

S is for favorite healthy snack:  Apple and peanut butter is hands down my favorite healthy snack.  I never get tired of it!  

T is for favorite treat:  Chocolate-no contest!!
U is for something that makes you unique:  I have a birth mark on the inside of one of my toes.  Everyone thought it was dirt when I was a baby.  :)
V is for favorite vegetable: Corn is my fave!!

W is for today’s workout: 4 mile tempo run + a little yard work
X is for X-rays you’ve had: None-Unless you count the ones for braces...

Y is for yesterday’s highlights: Picking out new gym equipment, getting some work done in the yard, and relaxing on the couch with Bobby (my fave!)

Z is for your time zone: Central...being from and living in the Midwest...always lived in Central time. :)

Your turn...pick a letter or two and play along!! 


  1. I always freak out that someone is in my backseat too! My mom sells women's defense tools and I've been meaning to order myself some pepper spray and a stun gun in case that fear ever comes true. I'll get them!

  2. Love this kind of post! Would you mind if I'd do the same on my blog? My answers will be similar to yours on a couple of "letters", though. Great mind think alike ;)

    1. I wouldn't mind at all!! I can't wait to read your ABCs!! :)

  3. I love this idea! I'm doing one myself! I'm a boring cubicle worker at a financial institute too. :( Can't WAIT to blog and run for a living! haha
