My first idea for this post was to do a “Fun Fact Friday” and then I remembered the “ABCs of Me” that’s been circulating the blog world for the past couple months. I thought this would be an easy way to share some fun facts with y’all!
A. Age: 27
B. Bed size: Queen…and Sullie doesn’t sleep in the bed (just an extra tidbit of info).
C. Chore you dislike: Laundry!!!
D. Dogs: Sullie, Golden Retriever, 4. Sullie is short for Sullivan. She is named after Sullivan’s Island in South Carolina – one of our favorite beaches ever! She is wonderful. At least once a day I comment on how lucky I am to have such a cute and sweet dog. Here is a puppy picture of Sullie.
E. Essential start to your day: Coffee and a yoga practice.
F. Favorite color: to wear, black…in general, blue
G. Gold or silver: Silver (white gold!)
H. Height: 5 foot 4 inches. My mom is 5′ 3″ (maybe 3.5″) and we still battle every time I see her over who’s taller. It’s hilarious.
I. Instruments you play(ed): Unfortunately, none. I dropped out of band in fifth grade because I just couldn’t seem to master the flutophone (recorder). I seriously wish I could play the piano or the violin and I have a serious thing for guys who can play multiple instruments…like Scott Avett.
J. Job title: account manager for an ad agency, group exercise instructor, blogger
K. Kids: None…
L. Live: Charlotte, North Carolina for the past two years and we are here to stay! Other places I’ve lived include: Dublin, Georgia; Athens, Georgia; Charleston, South Carolina and Birmingham, Alabama.
M. Mom’s name: Sally – we are very close. She lives 4 hours away in Atlanta though so I don’t get to see her nearly as often as I would like. 🙁
N. Nicknames: Jen, Jen Marie (my dad calls me this!) Whatever you do, don’t call me Jenny!!! Funny story…in the first running group that I joined for half marathon training someone called me Jenny on the first day and I didn’t correct them. I was known as Jenny the entire time I was part of that group and I HATE being called that!
O. Overnight hospital stays: None!
P. Pet peeves: Laziness, dishes in the sink (and a dirty kitchen in general), people who are on their laptops or never look up from their phones during meetings, people having conversations with each other while they take my class (they literally will face each other while they’re lifting and have a full-blown conversation), people who talk during yoga (especially while the whole class is in child’s pose and trying to focus), people who won’t share the sidewalk – you know who I’m talking about! Those who walk side-by-side and will not move over for other runners/walkers and force you into the grass…drives me crazy!
Q. Quote from a movie: I can’t sit still long enough to watch a movie. 😛
R. Righty or lefty: I am LEFT handed! So is my mom…the two boys in the family are right-handed. Another tangent…my grandmother was born left-handed but was forced to learn how to write with her right hand. To this day she still writes with her right hand but eats and does a lot of normal life things with her left hand.
S. Siblings: Brother
T. Time you wake up: 5 a.m. on days I’m teaching or practicing yoga (3-4 days/week) and 7:15 on days that I’m not.
U. Underwear: What does this even mean? I vote we change this to “U. University” and I will answer that as University of Georgia. Goooo Dawgs!!!
V. Vegetables you don’t’ like: The only thing that comes to mind is an herb…I hate dill!!!
W. What makes you run late: I am late to everything except for teaching class. Seriously, it drives me crazy and I wish I could change it. Why are some people always early and others always late!? I have been this way my whole life. I also wait until the last minute to do everything…I’m a procrastinator.
X. X-rays you’ve had: quite a few…arm (broke in 6th grade), lower back (cheerleading injuries), hips (chiropractor), teeth, collar bone (broke in elementary school), knee (running injuries)
Y. Yummy food you make: I love, love, love to cook and bake. Cooking and sitting down for dinner with Brandon is my favorite way to unwind from the day. Check out my recipe blog!
Z. Zoo animal favorites: gorillas, orangutans, otters…I really enjoy zoos although I know there is a lot of controversy about them. I am a huge animal lover.
That was fun!
I would love to hear some interesting tidbits about y’all…it’s always about me and I want to know more about my readers. Leave me a comment and tell me a fun little “getting to know you” story! Answer one (or several…or all) of the letters above!
