Factual Facts.

Good Morning & Happy Mid Week to you!

I don’t know about you, but this week is going kind of quickly…and I hope it continues. I’m really looking forward to this weekend & spending it in Tampa with Craig! Oh, question for you- any suggestions for restaurants/ things to do in St. Petersburg?? I would love any ideas! πŸ™‚ We will be there for the weekend, so we definitely have some time to explore. I know the beach is on our ‘to-do’ list..and of course the Orioles v. Rays game.

Anyways, the other day LindsayΒ tagged me in the ‘Bliss Blogger’ award & now I’m supposed to share 7 facts about me.

Easy enough πŸ™‚ So here you go:

1. I only like my oatmeal cold.

Not just in the form of ‘oats in a jar,’ but I just don’t like my oatmeal hot. I will usually cook it & then put it in the fridge for 30 minutes just so that it will cool down. I also like my oatmeal SUPER thick- no watery stuff..that grosses me out. Yuck! Oh, and I like it plain…no fruit or peanut butter added. I know…what is wrong with me?! Ha! πŸ™‚

2. I wish I could change the name of my blog, I think it’s way too long.
When I was originally thinking of ideas for names for a blog I thought of what I ate the most. At the time I would eat greek yogurt and apples every.single.day. Sometimes even 2 or 3 times a day. Now I can’t even eat greek yogurt that much because it hurts my stomach. (due to the lactose intolerance) So even though I still LOVE eating it, I really can’t. I also have the CUTEST name for a new blog, but I don’t know if I can change my current one….unless I start a new one altogether. (anyone know anything about changing blog names by chance?? πŸ˜‰ )

3. I do not like the color pink, unless it’s on my toes.
I don’t know why, but I’ve never been a huge pink fan. The only thing that I like pink is the color of my nails. I MUCH prefer purple over ANY other color! πŸ˜€

4. I think I want to go back to college to get my Masters in education.

I say ‘think’ only because I can only imagine how hard it would be to have a full time job AND go back to get my master’s degree. Even though I would eventually like to do that, I’m not sure if that will happen or not. I’m not sure if you know, but my dream as a child was to always be a teacher. I remember growing up that whenever I had to answer ‘what do you want to be when you grow up?’ It was always a teacher. Initially I wanted to teach 3rd grade, but as time went on I loved the idea of teaching high school. I would love to teach some kind of government, politics, or social studies class. Right now it’s just so hard to get a job teaching because of all of the budget cuts…but who knows what the future holds! πŸ™‚ Thankfully I have a job that I do like right now, and I’m SO grateful to even have a job..I know how hard the job market is right now.

5. I know some people might hate me for saying this, but I do not like coconut water.

I might be the only blogger to say this, but I cannot get past the taste of it. There is actually some still sitting in my fridge because I just can’t drink it. Maybe I got the wrong kind…or would like a flavor of coconut water better. I’m not really sure.

6. I think Bachelor Pad is WAY better than The Bachelorette or The Bachelor.

It’s just SO much more entertaining, right?!? I love all of the silly little fights & all of the couples working together…or not working out. Ha! I am really like this season- and I have NO idea why everyone considers Vienna & Kasey a ‘power couple.’ They drive me bananas. I really like Gia, but she left..:( But you know who I’m kind of liking that I never expected?? Michelle! She was so crazy when she was on the Bachelor, but now I feel like they are showing a different side of her.

7. I do TONS of research on running shoes before purchasing a new pair.
I just got a new pair of running shoes yesterday…but before buying them I researched so many different pairs for hours. <–that’s the pair I got- Mizuno Nirvana 6’s!

Normally I stick to Asics or New Balance, but I’ve only heard awesome things about Mizunos, so I thought I’d give them a try. And one of my best friends in high school that was on the cross country & track team ONLY wore Mizunos..she swore by them. I figured I would try them out too. πŸ™‚ Hey, if I don’t like them then I’ll just return them!

There you go, 7 facts about me. πŸ™‚ Totally random, but I just wrote them down as I thought about them.

Now I tag anyone else who wants to share THEIR 7 random facts! And if you do post 7 facts- let me know, I’d love to read them. πŸ™‚

Well, I just got done with a nice long run, so I’m off to take a shower & get ready for work. Feels good to be able to do more running lately. I’m really enjoying training for this half marathon coming up! I cannot wait. πŸ˜€

Hope you all have a wonderful day! Catch up with ya later.

Questions for you:
1. What’s a random fact about you?
2. Do you like coconut water? If you do, what flavor (if any) do you like?
3. What is your favorite brand of running shoes?

  1. don’t ever change your name! I always have loved it and can REMEMBER it! hehe.

  2. Still love you even if you don’t love pink as much as I do πŸ™‚ I always wondered about your blog title since I was guessing you couldn’t eat greek yogurt! I wish I could because everyone raves about it!

  3. I want to try the Zico Chocolate Coconut water..it looks good!

  4. I love your blog name! Mine is the same length as yours…do you think it’s too long? haha…love your facts!

  5. i have only tried the classic coconut water… not sure about the others.
    i was stuck on Brooks for a while now i just bought new balance and mizuno’s (i think the same pair that you got) however i think i like the new balance better!
    random fact. i can speak dutch, i used to hate eggs, bananas, pickles- now i love them all.

  6. Haha, I loved these random facts about you. I’m actually the opposite–I only like my oats hot!

  7. You should totally get your Master’s! That would be awesome. Ahh I just ordered sneakers the other day…hopefully mine would live up to your standards, haha!! I’m not really a fan of coconut water either. I’d have to choke it down and that’s not fun.

  8. Tracy's Treats

     /  August 31, 2011

    I actually like coconut water a lot, although I’ve never tried any of the flavored kinds. I’ve always bough Asics running shoes, but I have been wanting to try a pair of Mizunos after reading so much about them! You should post a reivew once you’ve broken them in! πŸ™‚

  9. I dont like coconut water either. It tastes like warm soap!

    I NEED my oatmeal to be scalding hot. Mmmm so good that way πŸ˜‰

    I cany wake up to my alarm if its set at 0 or 5!

  10. I’ve only tried coconut water once(I dont even know what kind I tried) And I absolutely HATED it!! haha, you are not alone!

  11. Love reading your facts!! But we’re polar opposites on #1 and 3 … I don’t like cold oatmeal and I love pink. πŸ˜‰ And I love “Bachelor Pad,” but I think I love Bachelor and Bachelorette a little more. Even though I know half of it is fake, I still love the romance! πŸ˜‰
