About a week ago, my blogger friend, Cecelia from Mommies Run, tagged me in a questionnaire-style post. So just for fun, I'm answering her questions - and also tagging a few of my favorite bloggers so I can learn their answers, too!

  1. Thanks, Sun! These things are always kinda fun! :) Ha I laughed at the "fatty," I relate! I've always loved my bread and sweets, but I think it's the runner now that I'm older. There's no end! ;) I also don't get how people do black licorice, my grandma used to LOVE it. Gross. I watched One Tree Hill a bit when it was on TV, and then a few years ago, I spent my summer watching all of the seasons on Netflix and was so sad that I watched it so fast haha.

    1. Ha, I'm going to choose to believe what you said - it's the runner in us that causes us to like sweets :)

      Shows like One Tree Hill are addictive! Impossible to watch just one episode!

  2. i'd rather be anyplace warmer right now too! brrrrr

    1. Hoping we both get a warmup soon. I think in WI, at least, it's supposed to warm up to the low 20s on Sunday. Yay? ;)

  3. I always love these types of fun to learn more about awesome bloggers! :) Mean Girls is one of my favorite movies of all time. I think I could watch it 1000 times and never get tired of it. (Actually I probably have watched it 1000 times.) I always love your race pics!

    1. Thanks! This is a pic my mom took at the end of my marathon this fall. I think it turned out pretty well!

      I'm totes going to watch Mean Girls this weekend. It will probably be time 1,001 for me ;)

  4. A job as a newspaper reporter, I bet that was exciting:)
    I laughed because last night when I couldn't sleep, Mean Girls was on and I couldn't resist watching it:)
    FYI, I wish cookies and all things good like Pizza had negative calories too!!!

    1. I covered a lot of small community government so less exciting than you would think ;) But it was a good place to learn!

      Maybe this is what food scientists need to work on - negative calorie treats!

  5. OMG One Tree Hill was my show. I can't believe I left that off my list. I still have Gavin Degraw's "I don't wanna be" on my running playlist because it makes me think of the show!

    1. It's only been off the air for a few years but they should totally bring it back for a reunion episode! :)
