blogger awards: learn a little bit about me!

blogger awards: learn a little bit about me!

I recently have been nominated for three blogger awards, so today I am finally putting together my featured post on these honors!

I would like to thank The Broccoli Blog, Start to Be Healthy Now, and She’s Losing It! for nominating me for the various awards. Once a blogger is nominated, they thank the person who gave them the award, answer some personal questions about themselves, and nominate their own favorite blogs.

Here are the 11 questions I was given to answer about myself:

1. What is your favorite movie soundtrack? This is quite impossible to choose! I’d say any really good Disney movie, like The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Pocahontas, Aladdin, you get what I mean.
2. What is your favorite workout? Boxing! There’s something so badass about punching out your aggression. I also end up covered in sweat, my favorite sign of a good workout.
3. Do you have any pets? No comment, that’s for a later post…
4. What’s your favorite city that you’ve been to? Santorini, Greece, but that’s a biased opinion since that’s where we honeymooned!
5. What’s the #1 city that you’d like to visit someday? Any city in China or Japan. My husband and I really want to do an Asia trip, but time and money don’t permit quite yet!
6. What is the last book you read? Anna Karenina. It’s definitely a steep commitment to read the entire thing, but it’s an engaging story.
7. What is your favorite season? Summer. This will be my first official summer in Miami though, and I’ve heard it’s hotter and stickier than anything I could imagine…
8. What’s your favorite kind of music? If we are going to be totally honest here, Broadway music. It’s perfection.
9. What’s the best new recipe you’ve tried lately? The white strawberry lemon sangria from my cocktail post last week. It was a hit at our Kentucky Derby party this past weekend!
10. Describe yourself in three words. Passionate, curious, empathetic.
11. What is your favorite blog post that you have written recently? My post from last week, my career change anniversary. It was a more personal post for me, and I am really proud of all that I have achieved and all that has happened over the past year.
