kristin from A to Z

1st order of business...

Have you entered my Beauty Box Giveaway?? If not, you have until tomorrow night (Wednesday, June 6) at 11:59pm EST

Now onto my actual post...

Saw this "a to z" post on an awesome blog I came across the other day: Sophistifunk, but it looks like other bloggers have been doing it for awhile too. It's just a fun, little survey, but will tell you all a little bit more about me, in case you didn't know! :)

A is for age:


B is for breakfast today: 
2 fried eggs with some cheddar cheese & fruit mixture of strawberries & blackberries

C is for currently craving: 

Chipotle...it's one of my favs

D is for dinner tonight: 
Cajun salmon, baked squash/zucchini mix and TJ sweet potato fries - yumm!! :D

E is for favorite type of exercise: 
That's easy...Crossfit!

F is for an irrational fear: 

G is for gross food: 
Cottage Cheese. Can't stand the look (see below, yuck!), taste, smell...no thank you!


H is for hometown: 
Herrin, IL (head 5 hours south of Chicago)

I is for something important: 

These guys...

 The hubby :)

Harley                                                   Rider

J is for current favorite jam: 

K is for kids: 
Currently, no. Eventually, yes.
L is for current location: 
My office at work

M is for the most recent way you spent money:
Bought a new Gussy Sews medium-sized pouch!! The floral+mint one :)


N is for something you need: 
A personal assistant :)
O is for occupation: 
Consultant for a survey research company

P is for pet peeve: 
Constant complainers

Q is for quote:
See 'change' quote at top of blog

R is for random fact about you: 
When I lived in Monterey, CA a few years back, we frequented Clint Eastwood's restaurant in Carmel - and I actually saw him a few feet from me one time! If you ever get a chance to make it out that way, I highly recommend stopping by and checking Mission Ranch out - great food, beautiful location and you might even run into CE :P


S is for favorite healthy snack: 
Granny smith apple & peanut butter
T is for favorite treat: 
Chocolate chip cookie dough DQ Blizzard (with caramel sauce, instead of chocolate)

U is for something that makes you unique: 
My husband and I, due mostly to military circumstances, have lived apart longer than we have lived together (during our marriage)...NOPE, I'm not joking! :( It has been really tough, but we are almost to the end of this long-distance period and I can't wait til we can actually get back to 'typical' married life (I think this is pretty unique, I know military families are separated  a lot of times and for extended periods, but to be separated longer than you've been together while married...haven't met anyone yet that can say that).
V is for favorite vegetable:

W is for today’s workout: 
Probably going to go for a run - shooting for 5 miles

X is for X-rays you’ve had:
Teeth/jaw, wrist...I think that's it

Y is for yesterday’s highlight:
I'm going to go with Sunday's highlight (because yesterday was just a boring old Monday work-day). Sunday I volunteered at Habitat Young Professionals of Charlotte's Mud Volleyball Tournament (yearly fundraiser) - it was a blast! Great weather, teams had fun and lots of people came out to support!

Z is for your time zone: 
Eastern Standard


  1. i loved reading your a to z! :) i'm glad we can both agree that cottage cheese is totally disgusting!
    xx brie

    1. Thanks for coming over to check it out!! Oh yes, when I saw your least favorite food was cottage cheese, I was thinking, mine too girl! It is by far the worst ;)
