The ABCs of Me

Hey, all! So, Lori over at Once Upon a Run tagged me in a super fun game of “The ABCs of Me” last week, and I’m always a sucker for a questionnaire-type blog post…so…here it goes! Thanks again, Lori! :)


Attached or single? Newly attached. :) DSCF4023

B. Best Friend? My sister…even though we hated each other’s guts as kids!


C. Cake or Pie? Oh, definitely pie. Unless, of course, it’s ICE CREAM cake we’re talking about!

D. Day of the Week? I’m going to have to go with the obvious answer and say Saturday.

E. Essential Item? Would it be super corny to say my running sneakers? Or my boxing gloves? Haha. Other than that, I always, ALWAYS have hand sanitizer on me at all times…ALWAYS. (Can we say…germaphobe?)

F. Favorite Color? Red, or any kind of turquoise/teal color…sort of like this blog!

G. Gummy Bears or Gummy Worms? Not a huge fan of either. When it comes to candy, I’m partial to dark chocolate Raisinets, pretzel M&Ms, and Swedish Fish.

H. Hometown? Kenilworth, NJ

I. Favorite Indulgence? COFFEE — I’m completely and 100% an addict. Anything containing dark chocolate and/or peanut butter would be a close second, tied with a yummy flavored martini. And then, of course, there’s always my beloved Dole Whip! :)


J. January or July? I’m going to have to go with July. As much as I hate running in the summer, there’s something about my more relaxed schedule that I particularly enjoy — especially since I have a lot more time to read, and I loves me a good beach day!

K. Kids? Someday!

L. Life isn’t complete without? Running, martial arts, or…DISNEY! (Could I BE any more predictable, honestly?)

M. Marriage Date? n/a

N. Number of brothers/sisters. One younger sister (24), whom I nicknamed “Hopper” many, many years ago…and it just sort of stuck. She loves it. :)

O. Oranges or apples? I eat an orange pretty much every day, but I LOVE apples. Especially the ones I pick straight from the farm in the fall…there is NOTHING more delicious, I swear!applepicking

P. Phobias? Spiders, and pretty much any other creepy crawly insect. Also…German Shepherds. I was bitten by one when I was three years old, and even though I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE dogs (especially our family’s dog, a Shih Tzu named Riley!), I’m still afraid of that particular breed to this day. And, yes, I know it’s completely irrational!


Q. Favorite quote? See my blog header! Or, there’s the quote that I used for my high school yearbook AND that is prominently displayed as a wall decal in my office:dreamsR. Reason to smile? I’m pretty much always smiling (or, more accurately, laughing), honestly. It doesn’t take much to amuse me. :)

S. Season of Choice? FALL. Hands down. I love fun fall activities like pumpkin picking, the crisp air, wearing boots and cozy sweaters, all of the awesome races, and, of course, HALLOWEEN!


T. Tag 5 People: Since I’m sort of late to the party and I feel like I’m amongst the last bloggers to fill this out, if you haven’t done it already, I say, GO FOR IT! :-D

U. Unknown fact about me? I LOVE PENGUINS! Okay, so maybe that doesn’t count as an “unknown” fact, per se…


V. Favorite vegetable? Spinach!

W. Worst habit? Hmm…how about my tendency to throw things on the floor? I’m not the neatest person in the world, let me put it to you that way.

X. X-Ray or Ultrasound? Can’t say I really have a preference on this one.

Y. Your favorite food?  Like I could pick just one favorite food! I do love Chinese food, though! I could (and sometimes DO) eat chicken and broccoli every day and never get tired of it.

Z. Zodiac Sign? Leo, the lion. RAWR.

Thanks for reading, guys! :)

I’d love for everyone to answer all 26 questions, but for the sake of (your) time, you could also pick one of the 26 letters and tell us one thing about you!


  1. Congrats on A – always fun to be newly attached!!

      What’s also exciting was getting to meet a penguin! It was during a “backstage” tour at Sea World. SO much fun.

  3. Walt has some fantastic quotes, doesn’t he? :) So many awesome ones to choose from!

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE your Ariel costume – that is my fave outfit she wears in the movie (well maybe a tie between that one and the sparkly one she wears when coming out of the water at the end lol)!

    • Jennifer says:

      YES! For sure. And they’re all so inspiring. :)

      Aw, thank you! My sister made the costume…it was QUITE the process! I love the sparkly dress at the end, too! I’m totally obsessed with The Little Mermaid in general, haha.

  4. I love reading these and learning about people! I did this one as well.
    p.s. I’m a leo too– they’re the best sign, obviously!

  5. I just love reading everyone’s answers on these! I’m not a creepy crawly fan, either…eww no thank you! Hah! :0) Happy training!

      Definitely, they’re so much fun — thanks for reading! Haha, no, I’m not sure there are many people out there who actually like them!

  6. You and your sister look SO much alike! I love reading these type of posts, it’s always so interesting to learn these random fun things about people!
