2.  What is your favorite season and why?
Fall! I love the weather, a perfect mix of warm and cold.
Fall also means pumpkin spice and apple cider!

3.  What is your favorite drink?  Alcohol or not, doesn't matter.
Hmm.. Probably pink lemonade.. I mostly drink water but sometimes I need something with flavor and pink lemonade is my go to drink!

4.  Why did you start blogging?
I started this blog as a fitness blog, I had love 15 pounds in one month and everyone was asking what I was doing to lose the weight. I started this blog as a way to show everyone how I was losing the weight and to motivate others.
In August I decided I wanted to go in another direction, I wanted to blog about more than just fitness, I wanted to write about my life.
My blog is now a lifestyle blog with hints of healthy recipes and fitness tips.

5.  What is your dream job?
Be a stay at home mommy!
I know this sounds lame but that would be the best job in the world.
I have looked forward to being a stay at home mom my whole life.

6.  If you could only clothes shop at one store for the rest of your life, which store would it be?
Wow.. I have no idea! I basically just shop where ever I can find cute clothes at a discount.
Maybe the Gap outlet, it is cheap and they always have a ton of options.

7.  Starting with the oldest photo on your phone, what is the 7th picture?
This picture of me and my best friend, Rachel.
This picture was taken over 2 years ago at her baby shower.

8.  What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Chocolate with chocolate covered in chocolate!
Haha! The more chocolate the better!

9.  What is your "go-to" outfit?
Hmm.. Besides jeans and a tee shirt?
During the cold weather I would say its Jeans with a solid color tee shirt, a scarf, cardigan and boots, you can never go wrong with that!

10.  What is something not many people know about you?
I used to be epileptic (I had seizures), I had my first seizure when I was 3 and had to take pills twice a day for the next 12 years. I Miraculously grew out of it when I hit puberty and have not had any seizures since, Praise God!

  2. Loved reading your answers to my questions :) And I love fall and Gap Outlet too! I always seem to have a pitcher of lemonade or pink lemonade in my fridge for when I need something with more flavor than water.

  3. What a cute blog post! Nothing lame about being a stay at home mom -- I am so thankful my mom did that while raising me and my siblings! And I can't wait to look back through your older posts and get some fitness inspiration now that I know why you started :)
