The ABC game!

I read a ton of food/health/weightloss/healthy eating blogs and all of them seem to be playing the ABC Game. I thought I'd join! Enjoy knowing random facts about me :)

A. Age: 27. Really? How did I get to be in my late twenties? When did this happen? How can I make it stop?

B. Bed size: Full, but I'll soon be downgrading to a twin when I share a room, with Rooms!

C. Chore you hate: Putting away laundry. It's always been a pet peeve of mine. When I was younger (and also when I was in college) my mom washed/folded my clothes for me. Today I have a laundry lady (stop rolling your eyes) and she too washes and folds my clothes, but I just HATE putting them away! Don't judge.

D. Dogs: They are great. I miss my Colty Wolty!

E. Essential start to your day: Breakfast, and a prayer to get me through another CRAAZY day in NYC.

F. Favorite color: Burnt Orange, Red, and Purple... ok that was three. Sorry!

G. Gold or silver: Mostly silver, although I've been wearing a new ring that's gold and has the Lord's prayer on it. My silver rings are all too big for my fingers right now. Boo!

H. Height: 5’8

I. Instruments you play: Zero. I have zero musical talents.

J. Job title: Admissions Associate and Full Time Student. I have two titles. I'm not special.

K. Kids: They are cute. Do I want any? Not currently!

L. Live: New York! Duh. With one of the greatest gals I've ever met. Ever!

M. Mom’s name: Amelia.

N. Nicknames: Leti, Tish, and a million other names that people randomly make up for me.

O. Overnight hospital stays: One, as a child.

P. Pet peeve: People who don't call me back/email me back/ text message me back.

Q. Quote from a movie: "I'm in love, I'm in love, and I don't care who knows it."- Buddy The Elf

R. Right or left handed: Right.

S. Siblings: Youngest of 8. Yes, 8. 5 sister and 2 brothers. Love the fam!

T. Time you wake up: 8-9am, depending on the day. Yup, I get to sleep pretty late for being a 'adult'. What does that even mean?

U. Underwear: Umm.. what?

V. Vegetables you dislike: Mushrooms and lima beans. Sickkkkk

W. What makes you run late: The stupid train. I HATE being late to places, so I always leave early but sometimes MTA likes to ruin my life.

X. X-Rays you’ve had: Teeth.

Y. Yummy food you make: I'm not much of a chef but I've been toying around with more recipes lately. This week I made a chicken pot pie and a peanut butter pie. Yes, it was a pie themed night. My roommate ate them with no complaints so I'll put those in the 'Win' column for now.

Z. Zoo- favorite animal: Elephant, Lion, zebra... why can't I just have one favorite? I dont know.

Happy Saturday, folks!

Stamp of Approval

It's been a while since I've done some stamps of approval (Melinda's recent post inspired me!)

Up first,

I'll admit- I was a little afraid of this cereal upon my purchase. Fiber twigs? Eww. But alas after eating it the past week I've started to LOVE it! It's perfect because it's cereal (my favorite) and it makes you super full. A big plus! One cup of this, one small banana, and a cup of unsweetened vanilla almond (silk) milk is 235 calories combined. Ummm hi awesome breakfast!

Up next is my newest (and by new I mean super new because I just had this for the first time tonight) is spaghetti squash! You just puncture it a few times and put it in a dish, bake for 1 hours, scoop out the seeds, then with a fork take out the spaghetti 'noodles'. I topped it with 1/2 cup of Organic spaghetti sauce and it was the BEST DINNER EVER! OMG. One cup of this stuff is like 45 calories. It's like your eating a big bowl of pasta without the carbs! WIN!
Last, but certainly not least, is my new favorite wine (don't worry Resiling I still like you too), Lambrusco! I had NEVER enjoyed any sort of Red wine until my Rooms introduced this goodness to me on my birthday. Needless to say we've polished off a few couple bottles since. Whoops :) I love our wine and chats at night. We are so fun!

That's all I've got for today.

Over and out.
