ABC's of me!

Happy Monday everyone! I can't believe we are halfway through July! Freaking out here!
On Sunday I did the Graffiti Run with Andrew! So much fun. There is still pink on my scalp though!

First off, I think everyone should go read Aurora's (from Fitness is Sweetguest post. I thought it was totally interesting and informative. Let me know what you think!

I feel like I need more things to blog about! I can't talk about running every day. So today I decided to be creative and do a get to know me post.

I got this from Katherine over at Peanut Butter Lover. I loved the idea! (: Thanks Katherine (:

A. Attached or Single? Attached! I've been dating Andrew for about 2.5 years. He's the best (:
The 4th!

B. Best Friend? Besides my dog? (;

I snapchat my friends constantly. Brooke is a bit too obsessed (;

I have a few. Andrew (duh), my friend Julia and my friend Brooke. 

C. Cake or pie? Either. I really can't choose! If it's The Elegant Farmer, I choose pie. If it's Kirshbaum's, I choose cake.

D. Day of choice? Fridays. I love Fridays. Or Sundays because I get to eat a real breakfast instead of just pudding at 5am. Oh the weird things I do for running.

E. Essential Item? Iphone, mousse, gel, and cream (all for my hair...), mascara, running shoes, and sugar free gum. I have made trips to the store just for gum. That's pretty sad.
Oh, and I need insulin to live! That's important (:

Pretty purple pump.

 F. Favorite color? I love pink and purple. And neon everything. I even had a neon party! 
My friends at my neon party. It was blacklit. And my friends are very attractive people, I promise.

G. Gummy bears or worms? Either one, as long as they are sour. Otherwise I don't care. My vitamins are gummy bears but they aren't sour because Costco/Sam's don't sell sour bears. :(

H. Hometown? Stranger danger! But seriously, I don't feel comfortable putting that on my blog. We'll just say a suburb of Chicago! I still live in my hometown so...

I. Favorite Indulgence? Ice cream/Froyo. Is that even a question??
J. January or July? July because no school and especially no FINALS. 

K. Kids? I babysit sometimes. And I think babies are cute. 

L. Life isn't complete without? Running. (Totally would never had said that a year ago- and my life wasn't complete back then.) Friends, love, and family. 

M. Marriage date? I won't be getting married till after college! So that question does not concern me.

N. Number of brothers/sisters? One sister. She is 12 but looks like she is my age. She got the pretty hair and beautiful blue eyes. Not fair. Currently she loves calling me a sassy hobo. Not sure if it's an insult or a compliment. 
O. Oranges or Apples? Apples with PB. One of my favorite snacks ever.

P. Phobias? I really don't like ants or bananas. 
 Q. Quotes? My iphone background. "She turned her can'ts into cans and her dreams into plans."-Kobi Yamada

R. Reasons to smile? I smile because I am so lucky. I am lucky to be loved, to be cared for, to have been given the opportunities I have had and will have in the future. I am lucky to be healthy and to be able to run and to have wonderful friends and family who love me. I am lucky to be alive today, because if I was born 100 years ago, I wouldn't be. 
And this.

S. Season of choice? I like them all. I really like Winter but only till January 1st. I love winter outfits and Christmas. I have so much Christmas spirit you have no idea. 

T. Tag 5 People. Brittany @ DulceVie, Liz @ The Girl On Fire Now, Sunnie @ Modern Girl Nutrition, Alex @ Veggin' Out in the Kitchen, and Christine @ Apple of my Eye.  

U. Unknown fact about me? I'm trying to get past BED (binge eating disorder.) I have never been formally diagnosed, but I know what goes on in my head and with my body. Ever since blogging, I have been getting better & better about it. I can almost say I have a healthy relationship with food now! I will talk more about this in another post on another day (:

V. Vegetable? Peppers and Cucumbers. I always have some around!

W. Worst habit? Leaving gum wrappers everywhere instead of just throwing them out. It's annoying and it bothers my mom a lot. I don't know why I do it, I really don't. I'm not a very organized person, I'm okay having things be a bit messy, so that's how it tends to be.

X. Xray or Ultrasound? I have never had either done to me!

Y. Your favorite food? This changes about 347204812078397589137 times a day. I have no idea. I just know I really like chocolate and peanut butter and veggies and cold desserts and mexican food and... you get what I am saying. 
Z. Zodiac sign? I had to google this one. Taurus, I guess! Cool (:

Hope you enjoyed getting to know me a bit better (: Have a great Monday!
