Good morning everyone!
I’m so behind in my blog reading and writing that I have some major catching up to do! I honestly don’t know where this weekend went! Lately it seems like the weeks crawl by so very slowly, but weekend are gone in a flash! It’s so not fair! 😉
My weekend was packed full of workouts which I can’t wait to tell you about… BUT.. I forgot my camera at my parents’ house yesterday, so you’ll have to wait until later on today (or tomorrow) to hear about them. (I did complete my 4 mile long run though! The longest run I have done since my 10K race last May!!)
So for now, I give you the ABC’s of me. 😉
A. Age: 27
B. Bed size: Queen, which is perfect in my mind, yet Chris seems to think we need a king because I toss too much? Oh pishaw!
C. Chore you dislike: Dishes. I LOVE to cook, but hate the clean-up.
D. Dogs: No dog for me! I would love to have one, but unfortunately our schedules just aren’t accomodating enough for a dog in our lives at the moment.
E. Essential start to your day: A big breakfast for sure. I thought about saying a cup of coffee, but I really don’t ‘need’ it to start my day. I do need food though. On days when I am actually allowed to sleep in, it’s my stomach that wakes me up!
F. Favorite color: Turquoise blue. I just LOVE it! No wonder it’s my wedding colour!
G. Gold or silver: White gold and silver, for sure.
H. Height: A measly 5 foot, 3 inches
I. Instruments you play(ed): Piano when I was little. Recorder in grade 5. Started on the flute in grade 6. Alto saxophone in grade 7. Taught myself how to play the guitar during university.
J. Job title: Project Coordinator (but wish it could be blogger/web designer…one day!)
K. Kids: None yet, but some day!
L. Live: In the small town of Bowmanville, Ontario. Would have never imagined I would end up here, but I love it.
M. Mom’s name: Sheila
N. Nicknames: ummm… Laura? My dad has always called me (and still does) squirt.
O. Overnight hospital stays: When I was 20, Chelsea – my horse, accidentally kicked me in the face. My jaw was broken in 2 places. I was rushed to emergency where I had emergency surgery and spent the night. Not fun.
P. Pet peeves: Bad drivers, slow walkers who like to take up an entire sidewalk (or asile)…
Q. Quote from a movie: …I am trying so hard to think of one but my mind is blanking! ??? I’ll have to re-visit this one.
R. Righty or lefty: Righty
S. Siblings: Joey (32), Chris (30)
T. Time you wake up: Mon-Fri it’s 6:09. Saturday it’s usually 7:30. Sunday it’s 6:51.
U. Underwear: Yes I wear underwear lol I’m not going to go into details on the blog though! 😉
V. Vegetables you dont’ like: Swiss chard. I’ve tried it so many different ways and I just can’t stand the dirty flavour. I also dislike celery. I’ll cook with it, but you won’t see me grabbing a celery stick or anything.
W. What makes you run late: Chris. LOL (sorry babe!!!) I’m actually normally a pretty punctual person. Chris on the other hand… well I’ll just stop right there. 😉
X. X-rays you’ve had: Jaw after the kicking accident. My arm when I was a kid and fell on the ice. Teeth at the dentist. Knees when I was having issues during university.
Y. Yummy food you make: See my recipe tab above!!
Z. Zoo animal favorites: I love checking out the gorillas! I’ll never forget this one time when I had a ‘moment’ with a baby gorilla through the glass. We ‘touched hands’. It was priceless!
p.s. I am a big supporter of Operation Beautiful and everything it stands for, so please check out this video! LOVE it!
