7 Questions

Today, I am linking up with Gentri from Gentri Lee for 7 Questions.

1. What do you do when you're sick? (Do you act like a baby? Tough it out? Have any weird cravings? Cry?) When I'm sick, I cannot stand to be in my bed. I have to lay on the couch for some reason. I pretty much always want Chicken & Stars soup. That's right, chicken & stars, not chicken noodle. 

2. What do you do to find motivation when you feel you've lost it? It depends on what kind of motivation. If I need motivation for the every day things, I call my mom. She has always been my biggest motivator for many reasons. 

3. Do you wish time away or do you savor every moment? I am so bad about being excited for the next big thing that's going to happen that sometimes I forget to just cherish the day.
I just pinned this yesterday to remind myself to not wish the time away. 

4. If you could be any mythological creature, what would you be, and why? I actually had to look up a list of mythological creatures for this one. I'm gonna go with a Pixie. My cousins and I used to pretend like we were Tinkerbell when we were little. One day, we kept using baby powder as pixie dust and jumping off the bed swearing we got higher and higher each time. My aunt came home to a bedroom full of baby powder, she was not very happy. 

5. What is your current biggest weakness and are you working on fixing it? Lately, I've been lacking motivation to workout and eat healthy. Every day, I tell myself I'm going to go to the gym and every day I come up with some excuse not to go. Right now, I should be going to the gym, but instead I'm sitting here blogging. I try pinning healthy recipes, but then I always end up using the most unhealthy recipe. 

6. How do you greet someone when meeting them for the first time? If I've never talked to the person before, just a handshake and a nice to meet you. If it is someone I've talked to many times, but never met before (many of you bloggers) you can bet it would be a big ol hug! 

7. How do you grocery shop? (Do you write up a list? Go in with no idea what you're looking for? Have meal plans? Bring your own shopping bags?) I usually decide what I want for dinner, make a list and then head to the store. I've tried many times to make a meal plan for the week and go shopping on Sunday night, but then for some reason we only end up having half of what was planned and food ends up going to waste. 


Ok, now I'm really getting up off this couch and heading to the gym! 


  1. You have the type of body you don't even have to work out!!! But working out always makes me feel so much better.

    I'm pretty much the same when I get sick...I love the couch.

  2. If I'm sick, you can find me on the couch too. I don't know what it is about it, it's just comforting!
    And I call my mom for everything! :)

  3. great q&a hun! thanks for the comment! :)

  4. I hate being in my bed any time I'm not sleeping! Plus, the couch is where the TV is, and if I'm sick you can bet I'm sitting in front of the TV whining for my hubs to please make me food :)
    Don't worry, I think everyone struggles with exercising and eating right sometimes. Especially when Pinterest is throwing all of those drool-worthy desserts in front of our faces!

  5. hope you feel better! the gym always works!

  6. i try making meal plans, too! i have to be careful not to make too much or it will go to waste since there's only 2 of us. also, i'm having a $50 gift card giveaway!

  7. I need work out motivation too!! Pinterest always helps but then I see yummy junk food recipes too! Gah!

  8. I have always loved learning more about bloggers, so, I love the questions posts! :) Oh how I wish I liked to cook and could plan a meal and then shop and make it...right now the microwave is my best friend! ;)

  9. I am the same way, I only want to lay on the couch and I for some reason hate McDonalds but crave Big Macs when i am sick. Which only makes me run for the toilet. I am such a Twat Waffle!

  10. You would make such a cute little pixie!! ;) And you know how I grocery shop? I go in and pretend I know how to cook and end up with a bunch of food that rots in my fridge. ;) I know, I am terrible. My poor kids!

  11. i can never successfully plan for the whole week! even if we have all the stuff, sometimes we just arent in the mood for something on the planned day. oh well! such is life!

  12. i need to get off the couch & make my way to the gym, too! i have been lazing about & reading blogs all day - soooo not productive! happy thursday :)

  13. I'm the same way with the couch. Something abut being on the couch is so different and better than the bed?!

    I get in the same funk with working out. Its so easy to talk myself out of it and can go weeks without doing hardly anything, then I'll go go go for a couple months, and the cycle keeps going round and round. haha

  14. i abhor the grocery store. i hate meal plans. i buy a meal at a time. for real.

    which results in visiting the place that i hate multiple times per week. it's an issue.

  16. Amazing blog!!! Keep posting! What about following each other?

  17. just found your blog and i'm so glad i did! :)
