I would have to agree with your four foods not to eat! At one point tried to get myself to like beets because I heard they were really good for runners, but I just can’t eat them! Ew and definitely not all of those foods in a smoothie!
I am so jealous that you lived in Hawaii- that is one of my favorite places!
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!


Totally didn’t know you used to be a high school teacher! Crazy.
4 foods I won’t eat: tuna, marzipan, cottage cheese, beans!


Pitch Perfect, Serendipity, Knocked Up and Sex In The City

White Rock, BC


Have a very Happy Thanksgiving! I recently answered this survey on my blog and really should have included How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days because I can watch it over and over again! Love the sweets at Disney. The chocolate covered apples and giant chocolate chip cookies are my all time favorites.


I’m thankful for Hungry Runner Girl.

You’re a shining star, lady!


Did you watch the Bachelor Canada this season? April (who won!) was my mom’s co-worker :)

Where did you visit in Canada??


Mayo, tuna, cheese, ranch dressing

Serendipity, Pitch Perfect, Love Actually, Prefontaine

I have only lived in Hays, KS and I spent 3 months living in Washington DC. Loved DC but wouldn’t want to live there permanently. Too many people! I love love to live in Oregon or Washington. So beautiful!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Hahaha I love the smoothie food comment made my morning :)

Olives/bacon/caviar/hotdogs top my food list of things I can’t stand :P

Enjoy your Thursday!!


yay happy thanksgiving!!! i find i also have a deep love for donuts!

i cannot even remotely handle beans of any variety. ever. not even to be nice and eat them anyways.


I like you. Nay. LOVE YOU! Hey there is nothing wrong with hearing you say it, even if I don’t always say it back because I am socially awkward (like my pictures prove).

Your smoothie sounds awful. I hate beets too. How are we friends with Megan? I have more issues with textures than tastes when it comes to food though. Like jello (pudding or gelatin) applesauce, melted cheese, etc.

Friends truly is the best show ever. Have I thanked you for introducing me to that IG account? It makes me so happy. For movies, I have repeatedly watched Mean Girls and clueless.

Have fun in Cali, girl. I just said a prayer for you so that the food will be good. Nothing worse than a disappointing dinner #priorities #firstworldproblems


I second everything she said.


Happy thanksgiving! Four movies I’ve watched more than once:
1. Love Actually

I can’t believe you worked at Fazoli’s! It’s where my husband and I had our first date and he absolutely loves that restaurant! Anytime we travel, we always look to see if there is a Fazoli’s. In fact, we ate at one in St. George in 2009 (looks like it may have went out of business) and we were to the locations in Draper and West Jordan two years ago. He’s going to love that one of the blogs I read is written by a former Fazoli’s worker!

I have always lived in Kansas but I think my favorite location in Kansas is where I am living right now, however I am trying to convince my husband that we need to move to Colorado ASAP. We visited last fall and I fell in LOVE!

Happy Thanksgiving to you!!!

Fave place to live: Falls Church, Va. I met my husband and we are raising our daughter here. Although, I loved living in Puerto Rico as a teenager!


It’s Thanksgiving and you want to ask us about foods NOT to eat?! Lol. I really like a lot of foods, and I’m not a picky eater AT ALL. But something about fried food (especially breaded and fried) grosses me out. I think it’s the mouth feel – oil in your mouth.
My favorite place I’ve lived is West Virginia. People don’t believe me, but it’s incredibly beautiful and the panhandle is full of history.


The Violets of March is such a good book!!


I had to laugh when you mentioned beets~ I’m trying to ‘train’ myself to like beet juice right now. Something about it helping with runner’s stamina lol

And, I also read Sarah’s Key. Fantastic book.
