WOW. thank you for the feedback, comments, stories and kind words on my last post about suicide. you guys are amazing! really great stuff. i wish i had time to reply to you all individually. unfortunately, that would take years, so how about a group hug?
that was great.
day six of my little 30 day challenge says to list 30 interesting facts about yourself.
well, rattling off facts about myself i can definitely do. but interesting? hmm.. i am not making any promises.
here we go!
fact 1: i have started eating breakfast at home every morning instead of at work.
two slices of french meadow women’s bread, toasted and topped with organic peanut butter, plus scrambled eggs (1 whole egg+2 whites)
it is a lot nicer. i read my latest issue of real simple while i eat and it is such a nice way to start the day.
fact 2: i have been waking up without pressing snooze for an hour!
that is why i have been able to implement fact #1!
fact 3: i was born on a wednesday. this year, my birthday is on a wednesday.
which means that this year, if you were born in 1983, your birthday is on the same day of the week that you were born. unless you were born on leap day.. i don’t know how all that garbage works.
fact 4: i am leaving town straight from work tomorrow and i haven’t started packing yet.
blogging is a good way to procrastinate.
fact 5: my favorite number is 22.
has been since jr. high. not sure why.
fact 6: i could (and usually do) eat leftovers every day.
pasta with chicken, roasted grape tomatoes & caramelized onion basil sauce (recipe coming soon) + broccoli.
fact 7: i have two older sisters and one older brother.
which makes me the youngest in my fam.
fact 8: i love all fruit, but there is nothing better than a super ripe, fresh peach when it is in season.
that is my very favorite fruit. ever.
fact 9: my middle name is ann.
seems to be quite the popular middle name.
fact 10: i have been eating absurd amounts of bananas lately.
today i had my banana in sandwich form, the nut butter you see is mighty maple by PB & Co.
fact 11: mighty maple by PB & Co is my favorite peanut butter.
fact 12: justin’s maple almond butter is my favorite almond butter.
fact 13: although i love maple nut butters, my favorite flavor is actually vanilla bean.
fact 14: i crack any and all possible parts of my body, from my fingers to my toes to my back to my neck to my elbows and everywhere in between.
this drives my boss crazy, but i am addicted. oh, and for the record, when i go on a popping spree, i count how many pops there are. and it always has to be an even number. i am crazy!
fact 15: i count my steps when i go up or down stairs.
i told you, i am crazy!
fact 16: my mom is the BEST EVER!!!!!
she sent valentines to me, marshall, penny & randy. we each got 5 bucks. even the dogs. i told marshall that penny and randy get to spend theirs on whatever they want and that he didn’t get to spend it!
fact 17: my hamstrings are so sore.
thanks a lot, jackie warner.
fact 18: i graduated from high school ON my 18th birthday.
that was pretty neat.
fact 19: i changed the order of my facts so that 18th birthday one fell on fact 18.
i told you, i am crazy!
fact 20: i subscribe to six magazines.
oxygen, cooking light, self, shape, women’s health and real simple. this new issue of oxygen came just in time for the plane ride!
fact 21: i had braces, only on top, for 5 years.
it was crappy at the time but now that i have a nice smile, i am glad i went through that.

guess what she sent me?!
mini chocolate protein muffins! gah. love her.
fact 25: i have started doing the bodyrock.tv workouts!
fact 26: cottage cheese will ALWAYS be a savory food for me.. NEVER sweet.
post workout snack!
fact 27: i hate wearing the color red and can’t think of one thing i own that is red.
fact 28: my biggest/worst fault is procrastination.
still haven’t started packing.. it is 11:02 PM..
fact 29: i am going to chicago for my very first time EVER.. tomorrow! with kristen.
i can’t wait!
fact 30: i sure am going to miss these three nuggets while i am gone!
i probably will be scarce for the next five days.. but i will try to post!
1. tell me a fact about yourself. anything goes!
2. selfish question for me: what is fun to do/not to be missed/must be eaten in chicago? i would love suggestions on where to go, what to do, what is fun during the day, fun at night, great places to shop, cool museums, delicious restaurants.. you name it. i want to know.
