Liebster Award

Henri and I officially made it through our first week of work! I’m already loving our new schedule and am looking forward to settling into a groove for the next year or so while we’re living with my family.

Don’t forget to enter my OrthoLite Insole Giveaway – all entries must be in by midnight on Sunday, 4/13.

Liebster Award

Hailey @ Striding Strong nominated me for the Liebster award and I am really excited to participate! Its a great way to share a little bit more about myself with you all and really helps to connect other bloggers to each other! Thanks Hailey!

Here are my answers to Hailey’s questions…

1. Are you a morning or night person?

I am definitely a morning person! As soon as the sun’s up I’m up!

2. What was your favorite childhood T.V. show?

Oh my, that’s a hard one. My family didn’t have cable until I was in middle school so PBS was our go-to channel. Arthur was a pretty good show – and WISHBONE!

3. Are you a dog or cat person?

Dog person! Cats weird me out, my feelings about them can be summed up by this video.

4. What is one of your current goals?

My biggest goal for 2014 is to break 3 hours in the marathon. Whether that happens at Boston in 9 DAYS or Chicago in October doesn’t matter.

5. If you could visit anyplace in the world, where would you go?

I love Europe, practicing my French, Pain au Chocolat and authentic baguettes so France for sure. More specifically Paris and the French Riviera!

6. Summer or winter?

This is going to sound a bit ironic since I just moved from Cali to New England but summer. (but my favorite season BY FAR is autumn)

7. What is your favorite movie?

I have always been fascinated by World War II books and movies. Ever since I saw it years ago, the Italian movie Life Is Beautiful has been my all time favorite movie. If you’ve never seen it I highly recommend it (you HAVE to watch it in the original Italian)!

8. Do you have a sport you wish you could play, if so which one?

Besides running I wish I could be really good at playing tennis. I played in middle school and high school but was never all that great in matches.

9. What was the last book you read?

Just finished the Divergent series! SO GOOD!

10. Who do you look up to most?

There are so many great role models out there and there are things that I admire about all the important people in my life. But I don’t think that there is just one person that I look up to more than anyone else.

  1. LOVED Wishbone! We didn’t have cable until I was in middle school either so I was into PBS too. And speaking of “Girl Meets World,” do you remember TGIF? Loved that too. I’m so late to the game on the Divergent series, but I really want to read them. Choosing between pancakes, waffles, and french toast!? That is a tough one. I think I would say french toast- I love the oooy gooeyness, but I also like my pancakes a little undercooked so maybe I’m just weird haha

    • AH! TGIF with Sabrina the Teenage Witch = the best ever!!! Wasn’t 7th Heaven on then too??? Another really great show from back then! I don’t usually cook my pancakes underdone on purpose but if they accidentally come out that way I like them that way too!

      • That is so funny you mentioned 7th heaven because I randomly thought about that show the other day so I’ve been watching episodes of it on Youtube while I cross-train haha. And Sabrina was another fav of mine! Ahh memories 🙂

  2. Aw thanks for the nomination girl! It will be a good filler post for me this week 😉 CANT WAIT TO HANG OUT WITH YOU IN ONE WEEK!!!! (clearly I just got your email so my excitement is out of control haha)
