I have another fun little get to know me post for you all today!  Q&A with yours truly!  I saw this previously on Dayna and Amanda's blog and just had to do it!  I hope you enjoy learning a bit more about me!

1. What time did you get up this morning?
5 AM!  I leave my house around 6:20 and I hate feeling rushed!
2. How do you like your steak?
I am not a steak person, red meat is just not my thing!  GIve me a nice piece of fish and I am one happy girl!

3. What was the last movie you saw at the theater?
 I want to say it was Sarah's Key, and despite being very sad and thought provoking I loved it!

4. What is your favorite TV show?
Hmmm I really like Food Network cooking shows, Man VS Food...HGTV anyone?  I am not a person that watches a ton of TV, but from time to time I do tune into the shows we all love like the Real Housewives and such!

5. If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
I would love to live somewhere that has lots of my favorite things.  Such as the arts, good local restaurants interesting entertainment and the people I love and care about the most!
Italy would be pretty neat, or Chicago!  I will just have to wait and see where my path takes me!

6. What did you have for breakfast?
Oatmeal, is my breakfast staple my morning doesn't feel complete without it!  I change up the toppings daily, but usually you will find a big scoop of peanut butter on there!

7. Do you wear glasses or contacts?  
I wear glasses when I read or work on the computer.

8. What food do you despise?
Hmmm off the top of my head the only thing I can think of is red meat!  I am sure if I sat and thought about it for longer I could come up with some more!

9. Favorite Place to Eat?
. It depends on where I am at and what food I feel like eating! I love local restaurants.  When Mark and I travel we like to find the little dives (this is something he has gotten me into)!  One of my all time favorite places to eat was Zest! in Indianapolis!  
They had by far the best brunch!  In Rochester I love the Red Wood Room!

10. Favorite dressing?
Balsamic for sure, I am also a huge fan of salsa on salads!

11.What kind of vehicle do you drive?
2005 Jeep Liberty

12. What are your favorite clothes?
I am a total dress girl, always have been!  I didn't buy a pair of jeans till the 5th grade!
And heels I love heels, I will pick heels over any other shoe to wear!

13. Where would you visit, this weekend, if you had the chance?
Columbus Ohio to see Mark!  Good news though he booked his flight to Minnesota for New Years!  But if Mark could go with me, I would for sure go to Napa Valley (I have been dying to go there)!

14. How many tattoos do you have? 
Nope, none! My dad said if I ever got one he would disown me!  Harsh but motivation not to get one!

15. Where would you want to retire?
 Somewhere on the lake.  With a boat, and a beautiful house with big windows over looking the lake!  That would be ideal!

A picture of Mark and I!  It is from a bike ride this summer with my parents. 

17. Where were you born?
Fairfield Illinois, same hospital as my dad

18. What is your favorite sport to watch?
Hockey!  The only sport I semi understand!  I usually root for the Chicago Blackhawks while Mark is a Pittsburgh Penguins fan!

Spending time with family and friends, cooking/baking/looking up recipes, working out/running, entertaining, and reading (though I don’t do it enough)

Always.  My dad is an ER doctor seat belts are a must, they save lives!  And my car does that annoying beeping noise if I don't put it on!

29. Been in a car accident?
Yes just one.  However it did total my little car!

30. Any pet peeves?
When people are really really late, or they cancel plans at the last minute!

Hmm that would have to be tomato, fresh basil and mozzarella.  With an garlic olive oil sauce!

32. Favorite Flower?
Red Tulips, and lilys. 
33. Favorite ice cream?
Peanut Butter Frozen Yogurt!  Hands down I would choose frozen yogurt with all the fixings over ice cream!  
But if I am in Ohio and there is a graters near by I am all about the ice cream, hello buckeye blitz!

34. Favorite fast food restaurant?
Hmmm, I never really eat fast food, and honestly cannot remember the last time I ate it!  But I do love Chipotle Chips and Guacamole, and Jimmy Johns too!

  1. Peanut butter in oatmeal?! Salsa on salads?! You've just introduced two new things for me to try :)

  2. Very cute! And I love the picture of your Golden. I have a soft spot for Golden Retrievers!

  3. My parents said the same thing about tattoos and I am so glad now!

  4. I can't count the number of things we have in common!!! Amazing :) So glad we're bloggy friends!

  5. I love this idea! So much fun! I've danced forever too and totally miss it! That pointe show photo is so cute. My studio did a show where every dance had a different color pointe shoe- that was m favorite! xo

  6. Yum those pizza toppings sound good!!

  7. So cute. I loved getting to know you a little better. I wish I liked to run!

  8. I've never tried peanut butter in oatmeal! I don't et fast food either. It's far and few between. My fast food is Panera bread lol!!

  9. I love putting salsa on salads! So good and so much better for you than dressing. I also eat oatmeal pretty much every day. I'll have to try the peanut butter. I bet Nutella would be good too, but probably cancels out the healthy part. haha…and same on fast food. Chipotle is yummy!

  10. Ah, we are so similar! But I do love red meat, and my dad's not an ER doc (boo!). And you should definitely go to Napa - it's so beautiful and fabulous. The Food Network is the best. I am loving their newest show Chef Hunter - so good!

    Hope you have a great day! XOXO

  11. Great idea.. I'll consider doing a post like this too.. so fun. I love a scoop of peanut butter in my oatmeal too, although I don't eat breakfast daily. Favorite Fast Food is hands down - Taco Bell. I love it since I was 14. Ice Cream - Haagen Daaz Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. If I could live anywhere, I'd wanna live in NYC, not 10 minutes away. Also would love to live in London or Paris someday, just for like a year. :-)

  12. Love this! So fun! I only recently started wearing jeans often.... I am completely a dress person no matter the season too! And I've been dying to visit Napa too!

  13. I always wanted to dye my pointe shoes. You would have been the coolest kid in class if we danced together. :)

  14. Great questions!! I love the background photo for your computer, very cute. I'm def. a dress girl too! I love your answer for where you would like to live. We have pretty much the same requirements!

  15. ok we can be tv watching buddies because i watch the same shows and oh we can eat that incredible graeters ice cream while we are at it! and your hair in the photo of you two dancing is gorgeous!

  16. Fun questions and answers! My dad is a doctor and used to work in the ER too, AND he also told me if I got a tattoo he wouldn't pay for my college ha!

  17. Love the shot of her dog. So cute. xo

  18. I LOVE Graters. Hands down the best! I'm from Indiana and will be there this summer, I'm going to have to try out Zest!
