Hey everyone! Okay, I just realized how boring that sounds. I really need to come up with a cutesy name for y’all, a la Tori. Hmmmmm, let’s see, what’s something I like to eat that can be turned into a nickname…oh, how about Peanut Butter Puffins? Or just Puffins for short. Yeah, let’s go with that! So PB Puffins it is, unless someone else can come up with a better name!
Enough with the silliness–let’s get to WIAW! This week, in honor of my first week back in classes (as well as a lot of other bloggies, I think), I decided to throw a little “pop quiz” about me in there. I hate pop quzzes, to be honest, but this one’s fun. Trust me.
My morning started out bright and early (for me) at 7. But I got to enjoy a nice breakfast in bed, so no complaints. Sour gummy vites, gummy calcium pill (can you tell I like gummy things?), spicy veggie sausage and dark chocolate oats topped with Whole Foods chocolate apple crunch trail mix. Seriously, this trail mix changed my life, yo.
What is on your desktop wallpaper? This is slightly embarrassing, but a very attractive male Hollister model leaning against a fence. Too hot for words, so here’s a picture…
Perfect Christmas present, right hurrrr 😉
What is your favorite drink? Right now, it’s homemade iced tea with a little Truvia for sweetening. I also love making Starbucks VIA iced coffee with a splash of soy milk.
What was your favorite toy as a child? I had a lot of favorites, but I’ll go with Beanie Babies (remember those?) and American Girl dolls. I had way too many Beanies, and I owned 3 dolls: a blonde Bitty Baby, Felicity (the red-haired girl from colonial times) and a “look-alike” doll I named Hallie. I still have them, actually…
Today's actual lunch was...messy, boring and eaten on-the-go, therefore, no pictures. This, however, was my yummy snack from Monday: Bear Naked Peak Protein granola (6 grams in 1/4 cup!) and the ever-present dates/raisins. Never gets old.
What food do you eat too much of? Greek yogurt. Oats, specifically overnight oats. Almond butter (partial to the crunchy over here!). Dates/raisins/pretty much any dried fruit. And lately, spicy guacamole snack packs, organic maple syrup, Whole Foods trail mix (I love the chocolate apple crunch) and peanut butter Puffins. All amazing in my book.
What kind of hairstyle do you have? It honestly depends on the day. Sometimes I use my hair waver to create boho waves. Sometimes I straighten, sometimes I scrunch for beachy waves, sometimes I curl, sometimes I pull it up into a high side ponytail. It really depends on my mood and outfit.
What was your favorite activity in gym class? In good ol’ elementary school, I loved the gymnastics unit. In high school, I loved yoga and Zumba. Can you blame me–I’m a former dancer!
Will the real snack please stand up? This was today's snackie-snack of Kashi TLC crackers, spicy guac with a bit of plain Greek and thawed mango chunks. Salty, spicy and sweet.
What are the top 3 most played songs in your iTunes library? Without checking, I know Lady Gaga’s gotta be one of them! After checking: Hey, Soul Sister by Train; Beautiful, Dirty, Rich by Lady Gaga (called it!); and The Show by Hawk Nelson. I really did not expect any of those songs to be in the top 3–I listen to them a lot but not that much. Maybe I need to refresh the library so it’s more accurate…
What is the picture nearest you of? Me and my little sis on our trip to Estes Park last year. I brought it with me to college last year and this year and it really brightens my day. I love that girl to death.
What do you do on a Sunday night? Have dinner. Possibly shower. Have a snack. Maybe watch the news or a random movie on TV. Read some blogs. Sleep. You know, all that fun stuff.
First dinner in my new place! Curry powder-spiked Amy's Cali veggie burger, baby carrot pyramid, strawbs and pineapple and a tablespoon of almond butter. It was also my first full tablespoon of nut butter ever--scary, but so worth it.
If you could only use one condiment on your food for the rest of your life, what would it be? Can I mix? ‘Cause I’m really into mixing condiments lately. Maple or agave and almond butter. Guacamole and plain Greek yogurt. I can’t just live with only one of those.
What color are your sheets? Bright pink, both here and at home. I love being a girly girl so…yeah 😀
I've decided when I get bored that I'm going to do model photoshoots with myself. This is one of my favorite Instagram'd photos ever. Make love, not...um, meat?
How big is your computer display? 17-inch laptop screen right hurrrrr! And I love it (not the screen, the laptop).
What pair of shoes do you wear most often? Generally speaking, leather flip-flops. Specifically, pink suede T-strap leather sandals from American Eagle. I’m surprised they’re not worn out yet!
Another self modeling shot.
What is your favorite game? The Game of Life or Uno! I also have both on my iPod, so I’m a bit obsessed. But I love that I can play them anywhere.
What time do you plan on waking up tomorrow? Between 7 and 8. Just a week ago, you couldn’t have paid me to wake up that early, but (sigh) now I have to because of classes. Oh well, it could be worse…
Okay, Puffins, it's mini-review time. I got the S'mores Halo bar (by Probar) at Whole Foods and I just had to try it. Verdict? Like the Quaker s'mores Chwey bars of my childhood, but healthier and more delicious. It had big chunks of chocolate, marshmallow and even a bit of graham cracker. Only complaint is that it's pretty tiny.
Have you ever tried a Halo bar? What condiment would you use if it was the only one you could have?
