Happy Monday, friends! If you missed me this weekend (I am sure you did), check out what I said about a healthy life, why weekends rock , and the importance of listening to your body. It was a fabulous weekend, but like you know, I am all about tackling Monday full speed. Oh, yesterday we had my little bro over and we ate spaghetti. YUMM.
So, I know you all want to know more about me, right? I thought so. You’ve seen some of these fun surveys going around the blog world, so here is mine. I saw it on Teri’s blog.
A. Age: 26
B. Bed size: Queen. I usually roll over and tend to push my husband toward the edge (not on purpose!). We might need a king someday.
C. Chore you dislike: putting away the dishes (my husband is a gem and puts them away for me!)
D. Dogs: none. I grew up with cats.
E. Essential start to your day: a great workout! I seriously love sweatin’ it up in the morning!
F. Favorite color: PINK!!! I am a total girl.
G. Gold or silver: silver
H. Height: 5’8″
I. Instruments you play(ed): Piano, Violin, Flute. I currently now only play the piano. My violin teacher refused to teach me because I “wiggled” too much. I hated the flute because I had to stand still. Sense a trend here??
J. Job title: Group Exercise Instructor and almost Certified Wellness Coach, oh and I’m a Master (literally, I just finished my M.S. and am currently looking for a full time job!)
K. Kids: none yet. Love kids and hope to have some of my own one day!
L. Live: Provo, Utah currently.
M. Mom’s name: Annagreth (she immigrated to the states from Switzerland when she married my dad)
N. Nicknames: Nettie, Nettienut, Princess, Angel
O. Overnight hospital stays: when I was born?
P. Pet peeves: When slow drivers are in the fast lane! And I have to be behind them! Grrr. I also dislike it when I see unkind things happen to others.
Q. Quote from a movie: “Uhhhhh, Olympus would be that way.” –Disney’s Hercules (my all-time fav movie)
R. Righty or lefty: Righty baby
S. Siblings: I have NINE (yes 9) siblings. 4 brothers, 5 sisters and we are all SUPER close. Can’t wait to ski with them in a week & ½!
T. Time you wake up: weekdays + Saturdays: 6:48 or 7:27 (depending on the day) and Sundays: whenever I want!!
U. Underwear: It is a daily indulgence
V. Vegetables you don’t like: Mushrooms (if that even counts, they are fungus, people!!) and olives (ummm not really a veggie either) and avocado (that is a fruit) and yikes……I guess I don’t love potatoes. I am strikin’ out on this one—seems like ‘real’ veggies I like.
W. What makes you run late: Me and my tendency to THINK I am ready to leave but then I remember I left the flat iron on, my earrings aren’t in yet, and I can’t find my keys. My husband loves this about me (not)
X. X-rays you’ve had: Teeth. Toes (I broke it doing gymnastics).
Z. Zoo animal favorites: Lions. Tigers. And Bears. (seriously!) Oh and flamingos–b/c they’re pink, duh!
YOUR turn, answer E (essential start to day), F (Fav color), V (vegetable you dislike). GO!!
