10 Facts

1. I need and crave fresh air.  I don’t care if it’s -40F in Minneapolis or 112F in Phoenix.  I need to be outside, even for 5 minutes, every single day.  This was the view from my neighborhood 15 minutes ago.  65F, breezy, but sunny.

2. I love finding deals on products, clothes, or groceries.  Finding a good deal excites me.

3. Contrary to how it may appear on my blog, I can actually go over a week without chocolate.  And I don’t miss it that much.  And then I will think, oh, I haven’t had chocolate in awhile, and will have some again.  I have an entire Chocolate Recipes Collection in case you can’t go without chocolate.

Such as Chocolate Covered Oreo Balls

4. Exactly how it appears on my blog, I cannot go without coffee each day.  I do miss it!  And get caffeine withdrawal headaches.  I did a big Coffee Review Post, recently if you need proof.

5. I eat lateVery late. And go straight to bed.  I don’t subscribe to “Rules”.

6. I used to have my nose pierced in high school and college and it’s not pierced anymore and the now closed up hole looks like a large pore.

7. I floss twice a day, every day.  I go to the dentist every 4 months for cleanings. I’ve never had a cavity.

8. I hate ants.  As in, I practically have a phobia of ants being in my house.  One or two doesn’t bother me but there are never just one or two.  They bring hundred(s) of their horrible friends.

9. I haven’t seen a movie in a movie theater in 5 years.  I was pregnant with Skylar the last time I saw a movie and only went because we had no a/c in our house and I was so terribly sick with morning all day sickness.  I spent the entire time I was at the theater in the bathroom being sick, but at least I was sick and climate-controlled.

10. I cannot sing.  Rephrase: I belt out tunes in the car or from my ipod, but to quote Randy from American Idol, “Dog you are Not Going to Hollywood”.

If you missed my other Challenge Posts, so far there is:

Day 2 – Where I’d like to be in 10 years

Day 26 – What kind of person attracts you

From my earlier post about Skylar’s Birthday, thanks for all the awesome birthday wishes for her!  I have been blown away by the amazing birthday wishes!  Thank you to every one who wished her a Happy Birthday!  I’ve been telling her all day that my blog friends and readers have been wishing her a happy birthday and it’s made her smile.  She totally “gets it” and loves it!

I really enjoyed reading about your memorable birthdays, too, and the great stories and trips down memory lane!

As for store bought vs. homemade bakery items like cakes and cupcakes, glad to know some of you rock the store-bought items, too!

This meal is home made, though. 

Caribbean Coconut Rice with Garbanzos and Veggies

For anyone who doesn’t “love” coconut.  Not to worry, far from eating a bottle of Hawaiian Tropic or anything.

I went to Target and replenished some essentials.

I have been returning phone calls, paying bills and just slammin ‘n jammin!

See you later!

  1. Forgot to mention that I’m JUST like you regarding time outdoors. Today I took a walk in a nearby park that was a beautiful Winter Wonderland. It made me feel soooo much better. So much more grounded. I think nature is very healing.

  2. pssst…. i have my nose pierced (we’re the about the same age). i had it done in my early 20s and wear a modest silver stud; most folks don’t notice it!

    thanks for sharing your 10 facts, averie!

  3. Happy happy happy birthday Skylar! She’s growing into mini-you, and she’s sooo beautiful!
    Today – went to Pilates, babysat, got bored and went to Pilates again. School starts tomorrow, can’t wait.
    Random fact – I’m going back to school to get a degree in exercise and nutrition. Seriously. I start in the morning. I’m totes freaking out because I have BAs in English and History but I haven’t taken real science since high school and I wasn’t so good then. I think it’ll be different this time, because I’m doing it by choice and interest rather than by compulsion. Also speaking of high school, it’s entirely ironic that I’m embarking on a career path in exercise and physical activity, because I faled gym in HS.

  4. High five to #5 and #8 !

    I just made that rice last night and had it today, yum!

    One fact about me – I am completely the opposite of how I come across, in my blog and in person. ;-)

  5. your blog keeps eating all my comments! i hope you get this one bc im sick of my shiz getting deleted. to put it succinctly – happy birthday skylar!

  6. Oooo I love hearing fun facts about people. Some of mine… I’ve never had a cup of coffee (and I’m not even a Mormon! I just hate it.), I can open beer bottles with my teeth, and I have hands the size of a small child’s.

  7. I secretly enjoy flossing! Something about the fact that I don’t have bits of food stuck in between my teeth!

  8. Happy Belated Birthday to Skylar! I’m sure you made her day extra special :)

  9. We had a lovely 70 degree day today, that is quickly going to turn into a 30 degree day tomorrow… ahhh Texas!

  10. Never had a cavity?! That’s crazy. You deserve a congrats :)

  11. Ugh! how bad of a friend am I that I missed Skylar’s bday post!!! give her a big hug for me and tell her she’s got a yogi in LA that “has her back” should she end up here someday!
    I think birthdays are actually more special for the parents. They have the memories of the birth and its very powerful. I personally could not care less about my own birthday though.
    And I think everyone has a nose ring in college. I didnt but I was weird. its like a standard thing though to have one in college and end up with a giant pore a few years later.

  12. I eat chocolate everyday haha! Glad I found your recipes so at least I can get my fix more healthfully :) You have also inspired me to get active, my excuse has been I have two kids but no more excuses, so I power walked yesterday and plan to either walk outside or inside on my lunch break everyday yay! Feels good!

  13. Thanks for sharing all of those facts about yourself.

    Skylar “getting” the virtual friend thing at 4 years old is great. What a smart girl she is.

    Today I’ve been busy at work. After work we are headed to Home Depot to return some items and exchange others – my hubby is building a small railway layout in the basement.

    Interesting facts in no particular order:
    – I’m a sci-fi geek
    – Daily green smoothie
    – Enjoy all of the seasons we have here, and missed them terribly during my year in TX
    – Looking forward to all of the snow that is suppose to arrive over the next 48 hours
    – Occasionally feel the urge to do cartwheels, hand stands, or make snow angels
    – Like to “aisle dance” when shopping, which embarrasses my husband to no end

  14. I eat late and go straight to bed, too! When I get off work at 12, I don’t exactly want to wait 3 more hours to digest before I can sleep!

  15. Pingback: Target Trip, Smoothie Helpers

  16. Getting deals on products,especially clothes,everyone of us love it.Besides While browsing a few posts on your blog I really began to think that you are a choco addict until I read this post.

  17. So far today I have been at work, but in a few hours I’ll be getting my hair done then heading out to Noah’s hockey game which is (thankfully) down the street from my house. Wish I had Target on my list, too, though! HAHA

    Interesting facts;
    -I am petrified of spiders
    -a good friend of mine is drawing up a new tatt for me
    -I hate the dentist. I brush twice a day, floss everyday, go for cleanings 4x a year and was just told Monday that I have 4 cavities. WTF? I think he’s lying.
    -I am a magazine junkie.
    -I eat WAY too many cinnamon hearts this time of year
    -I’m the only knob in my family that can barely skate or swim

    I better stop there! LOL :)
