UM IT'S SNOWING YOU GUYS (oh and a survey)

(Note: I typed this up earlier in the day, and posted it later cuz I'm ADD like that.)

I think that the title explains all.

Yesterday it was 50*, sunny, and I even almost went out on a neighborhood run (darn you foot pain!!!); today it's been snowing nonstop for hours, and chaos has commenced throughout the county I live in. (My dad got stranded on his way home from work and had to walk to a friend's house!! Scary stuff!!)

Luckily, Mom stocked up at the grocery store before the heavy snowfall started. ;)

So I had another fitness-related post planned for you today, but I came across a survey visiting Amanda's blog and you guys know I CANNOT RESIST surveys. You see, I like to talk. About myself. I'm gonna rock interviews!!! Let's begin, shall we.....

1. Were you named after anyone?

Um, no? I do know my name changed like 15 times in the two weeks before I was born. It could be a Jennifer typing this post.....

2. When was the last time you cried?

This is an unfair question because I'm really emotional and sensitive and just gah. I think I may have cried watching Beauty and the Beast (the TV show) last.

3. Do you like your handwriting?

Surprisingly yes. I've always had freakishly neat handwriting. It's nice for note-taking.

4. What is your favorite lunch meat?

I'm gonna go with Amanda on this one and say roasted chicken breast. Mmmm.

5. Do you have kids?

Lilly and Oscar!! Lilly is my baby. (I feel the need to add that these are my two cats...)

6. If you were another person, would you be friends with you?

UHM DUUHHH. I'm totally my type, yo!!!

7. Do you use sarcasm a lot?

Pssshhhhhh. Nooooooo.

8. Do you still have your tonsils?

Yuppers, but as a young kid I always wanted to get them out - the thought of ice cream all day made me happy.

9. Would you bungee jump?

I'm going to sound like a total wimp buuuttt probably not. :( Sorry, that's just not up my alley.

10. What is your favorite cereal?

I'm not much of a cereal eater, but if I do, I love Cheerios (any flavor, but especially just plain toasted oats), and any Kashi.

11. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?

I'm too lazy to take the time to do that, but I do untie them when I put them back on so I don't wear down the heel.

12. Do you think you are strong?

Toughie. Mentally/emotionally: yes. I've been through and pushed through a lot of difficulties in my life, and pulled through and healed. Physically: Eeehhhhh I'm working on that....

13. What is your favorite ice cream?

Ben and Jerry's Phish Food all the way, baby. And during the winter special, Peppermint Stick (waahh I miss it!!)

14. What is the first thing you notice about people?

Their attitudes/language. Language meaning potty mouth or not.

15. Red or pink?

Um have you seen the color scheme of my blog?

16. What is your least favorite thing about yourself?

My perfectionism and rigid schedule. If something gets thrown off in my day/what I have planned for the day, I tend to get a little anxious/uptight. Again, working on that.

17. Any tattoos?

Nope - I don't even think it's legal at my age.

18. Do you have any hobbies?

Baking, drawing, writing, reading, cooking, being active, ummm eating, and watercolor painting. And singing reeeallyy loudly off key.

19. What color shoes are you wearing?

I'm wearing fuzzy socks - one that is blue and purple, and one that is light pink. Pshya.

20. What was the last thing you ate?

Banana and almond butter aka the fuel of life.

21. What are you listening to right now?

Rebekah is watching the Bachelor (Juan Pablo 5ever), so I'm listening to the girls' drama.

22. If you were a crayon color, what would you be?

RAZZMATAZZ. *Jazz hands*

23. Favorite smells?

Coffee, freshly baked goods, vanilla, cinnamon, and peppermint.

24. Who was the last person you talked to on the phone?

My mommy, requesting a restock of veggies for our fridge. :)

25. Mountain hideaway or beach house?

Mmm...beach house. Not a big fan of secluded mountain land.

26. Favorite sport to watch?

Football. Anything during the Olympics, especially the winter sports.

27. Hair color?

Auburny/reddish. I don't dye my hair wut??!!

28. Eye colors?

Blue-green. It really depends on the day.

29. Do you wear contacts?

No siree! I have 20/20 vision. I eat lots of carrots and sweet potatoes.

30. Scary movies or happy endings?


31. Last movie you watched?

Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters (coughcough my brother's request, not my preference. Just an FYI)

32. What color shirt are you wearing?

It's kind of a dark berry color. Like blackberry+raspberry mixed.

33. Summer or winter?

Right now, I really miss summer. But I really love winter. So I guess I don't have a preference.

34. Hugs or kisses?

I'm a hugger. :)

35. Computer or television?

Computer! Where else am I supposed to play on Pinterest and read blogs??

36. What book are you reading right now?

A book called Galway Bay - it's about the Irish Potato Famine and how it affected this girl living in Ireland, and how she copes with emigrating to America. Lame description, but reeaalllyy good.

37. What's on your mouse pad?

Um, I don't have one. But my laptop trackpad has a little bit of almond butter on it....hehe.

38. What color is your house?

If I say green, you probably picture some weird bright green color. But it's kind of a light, mossy green. Yeesh, that doesn't sound great either....it's green, but a pretty green that suits a house. Yeah.

39. What color is your car?

Trick question!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Don't have one. ;) My mom's car is greenish/silverish. My dream *first* car is a white Ford Escape coughcough Dad if you're reading this hint hint.

Aaannnddd that concludes the survey! I hope you all have a fantastic day/evening, and stay warm!!!!!


  1. I literally lol'ed when you said there's some almond butter on your trackpad. SO me! I always get food on my laptop! My mom gets so mad hahaha! That book you're reading sounds really good! Thanks for posting this. I now know even more creepy facts about you ;)

    1. Haha I think a lot of food bloggers can relate to food in random places!! And the book is really good, I'm almost done with it. And no prob, as I said, I do enjoy talking about myself. Lol. :) Have a good one!

  2. I second the almond butter on the trackpad thing ^^^^. There's always a bunch of food residue on my laptop. It's a problem.
    I absolutely love this survey, Jess. You are SO funny!!

    1. Same! I get crumbs in the spaces between my keys. Oh and you should see my phone screen....yeesh.
      And thank you!!! I try. ;) Have a fantastic day!

  3. Oh I love surveys! I may be stealing this one soon. I laughed at
    7. Do you use sarcasm a lot?

    Pssshhhhhh. Nooooooo.

    Hehehe. I'm not a cereal eater too- but cheerios and kashi are the best kind of cereal there is. I'm jealous of your snow day! Everyone in the south is freaking out about the weather and it's pretty funny (:

    1. Hehe I was hoping the sarcasm would translate over the blog.
      We did NOT need a snow day, even though it's a welcome surprise. We only have 5 "built-in" snow days for the year, and if we exceed that amount, they remove days from our breaks and summer!!!! Ugh.
      I know the South way overreacts to snow sometimes, but in this case, the roads iced over in less than an hour and Atlanta had to practically shut down. It really was like the Snowpocalypse!
