Some Lighter Fare: Ten Questions!

I don’t know about you, but I’m in the mood for some lighter fare today! So here’s my answers to a copy of “The Ten Questions From Inside The Actors’ Studio” that was thrown around Facebook the other day. Ponder, and maybe have a chuckle.

1. What is your favorite word?

I honestly have a list of favorite words, it’s hard to choose. We’ll go with either spork or astigmatism

2. What is your least favorite word?

“Bae.” Just shoot me.

3. What turns you on creatively, spiritually, or emotionally?

Listening to my podcast “friends”, beach rambles, and a chill night in with good friends and a bottle of wine or three, respectively

4. What turns you off?

Pundits arguing on cable news

5. What is your favorite curse word?

With the small ears around the house I’m trying to back down on the swearing, so recently I’ve switched to Shakespearean insults. “I scorn you, scurvy companion!”

6. What sound or noise do you love?

That hollow whooshing sound a forest makes when blanketed in snow.

7. What sound or noise do you hate?

When someone in the car rolls one of the rear windows all the way down on the freeway, and the whole car gets that weird air pressure effect where it sounds like a helicopter is landing on your shoulder

8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?

Research in some sort of psychology or social sciences field. People fascinate me.

9. What profession would you not like to do?

Anything having to do with sales, or optometry

10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?

Holy crap!

Go make it a great day!

A Get-To-Know-Me Survey (aka I Like Talking About Myself)

Hello, and good morning!

A couple weeks ago Ashley at A Lady Goes West posted this fun little survey and invited folks to answer the survey questions too. I love talking about myself, so I am totally game. So here are some things about me.

1. What’s your whole name?

Emily Catherine Farnham

2. Are you named after anyone?

My middle name comes from my Great Grandma Kate. It’s a family name that’s shared by my aunt, a couple cousins, and now Buttercup (her full name is Mercedes Catherine)!

3. Do you have any siblings?

Yup, I’m the oldest of three with a sister (Amanda) and a brother.

4. Where did you grow up?

I was born in Minnesota, and grew up in Omaha, Nebraska.

5. What activities did you do in high school?

I was a dance/band nerd hybrid with strong academic competition inclinations.  Along with being on the dance team (the “Elkanettes”), marching band (flag line), and concert band (very pathetic bass clarinet) I competed in Destination Imagination (formerly Odyssey of the Mind), Academic Decathlon (we went to nationals my senior year!) and that one time in Quiz Bowl that we don’t talk about.

6. Where did you go to college?

I went to University of Nebraska-Lincoln. You are required to have a brief understanding of college football and understand the implications of shouting, “Go Big Red!” as a prerequisite.

7. What activities did you do in college?

More marching band! I was on the UNL color guard for two years, and got to go to the Rose Bowl for the National Championships in 2001. You know, the one where Florida State completely annihilated Nebraska. Good times. College is also when I got into cycling and was on the UNL Cycling Team for several years, where I won the 2006 Nebraska State Cycling Championship in Women’s Cat. 4. Because I was the only cat. 4 woman racer to show up that day. Women’s racing at Nebraska got a bit better after I left. I think there are at least 3 racers now.

8. What did you study in college?

I have my B.S. in Industrial Management and Systems Engineering. Which is basically a degree in business with a lot of math and engineering classes so you can say, “I’m an engineer.”

9. What was your first job out of college?

I found a gig as a design engineer for a solar power equipment distribution company. I assisted the contractors buying equipment from us with their solar system designs for residential and commercial installations. To my knowledge, none of the systems I designed caught fire or blew up.

10. What kind of music do you like?

Right now I’m really addicted to the “Pompeii” station on Pandora. Apparently I like a lot of mid-2000s emo rock. I once read some Buzzfeed article about “What Emo Lyrics Mean” or something and every song I was like, “Ooh, that’s a good one! Ooh, I like that one too!” I never realized I was Emo until that moment. I also like Pitbull for workouts, “Fireball” is currently my keep-hitting-repeat song of choice. And Matisyaho to turn around a bad day.

11. What’s one hobby that you’d like to take up?

I wish I could sing, but I’m tone-deaf (see “pathetic base clarinetist” in Question#5).

12. What did you think you wanted to be when you grew up?

I was always really drawn to science-y fields. I wanted to be an entomologist because I thought bugs were cool and I was that kid turning rocks up all over the backyard. Then I saw that scene in “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” where they’re stuck in that room full of bugs and that was the end of that career. I also wanted to be an astronaut until I found out NASA has a height limit (I’m 5’0”). Then I wanted to be a chemical engineer, but my first chem lab in college had me going, nope nope nope.

13. What’s the biggest project on your to-do list right now?

Personally, doing this Whole30 and starting to get into running again. Health and well being is a full time gig, yo. For my family, it’s trying to buy a house in the Bay Area, but that’s mostly my husband’s project since he’s the one with the real estate license. I just contribute very helpful things like saying, “I want a white house.”

14. Do you have any irrational fears?

I’m always imagining horrible, completely-unrealistic-but-COULD-happen things happening to my kids. I think that’s a pretty normal part of parenting.

15. Have you ever traveled outside the country? If so, where and when?

In 2013 for a “babymoon” Hulk and I went to London. It was my first time outside the U.S. and I wanted to go to a country where I was somewhat confident I could speak the language. It was so awesome, an we want to go back.

16. When’s your next vacation and where are you going?

I really don’t know. I’ve been talking to my folks about bringing the kids to visit them in Wisconsin sometime this summer. We always talk about vacations, but before kids we would actually go, whereas now it takes a little more to coordinate even a day trip to Sonoma!

17. Do you speak any other languages?

Not really. I learned French in high school, but I would never consider myself fluent. Our babysitter is a native French speaker and has been teaching Squish some French, which is adorable.

18. What’s one talent that you wish you had?

A photographic memory. Especially since I’ve gone through baby brain. But I imagine that’s one of those things that sounds cool, but if you actually have a photographic memory, it might come with drawbacks that make it not so cool.

19. What’s something that you wish you did more of?

Travel! I love love love to travel. I’m looking forward to my next assignment at work, but I also want to travel more for fun. And not necessarily the big places, but also just places I’ve never been, just so I can check them out, from Boise, ID to Rio de Janeiro.

20. If you weren’t in your current job, what would you want to be doing?

Ooh, tough question. If it’s doing something different based on what I know now, it would be a software developer. I think it would be fun, and I’ve dabbled in some coding courses before, but I just don’t have the patience right now to pick up a new skill. If I didn’t know how awesome the job market for development was around here, I would probably be doing something in dance or theatre, like a choreographer or something. There’s both sides of the job scale for you!

Okay, your turn! Tell me something about you.

Go make it a great day!

Baby’s First Blog Event: a StitchFix Launch Party

A few weeks ago, I received a curious invite from StitchFix to a secret event. There were no details other than a date, time, and mention that kids were welcome. Because I love a good mystery, I accepted the invite. It also helps that the StitchFix HQ are right around the corner from my apartment, since I have major “seven block” mentality when it comes to where I will go in the city. If it’s more than seven blocks from my home, I’m a bit lazy about it.

If you don’t know about StitchFix, it’s an online personal styling service for women. Since I hate picking out my own clothes, I’ve used it several times in the past and I’ve loved it. To get “a Fix,” you go online to the StitchFix website and fill out a style profile, price range, and the date you want your fix delivered. A personal stylist will select five items for you ranging from clothes to jewelry to handbags, you name it. You try it on, keep and pay for what you want, and send the rest back. Oh, and if you keep everything, you get a discount. It’s super easy, and so much fun when the box comes in!

Okay, so now you know why I was pretty intrigued and exited about this event. I get to go hang out with a bunch of personal stylists at a mecca of fun fashion! So Monday I received the final invite – it was a secret launch party to introduce StitchFix’s new Maternity and Petites lines!

IMG_7908

Squeee! All the squeee. Since I am both petite and have needed some good maternity clothes in the past, I was super excited to find this out. When I was pregnant and wanted to do a StitchFix, I requested an accessories-only fix which was really cool, but I could’ve still used a good pair of maternity pants, you know?

Anyway, I figured this would be a good mommy-daughter outing for Buttercup and me. We even got all gussied up for it.

IMG_7907

They had professional babysitters from urbansitter.com to corral the kids, so I promptly handed the little miss off so I could schmooze and peruse the cute clothes and fun baby products from 4moms that were being raffled off.

IMG_7910

“You’re coming back, Mom … right? Mommy?” I don’t know, Cream Puff. There’s free champagne and lots of cute clothes over here.

IMG_7911

It was fun dusting off my “work a party” skills again. Coming from new baby and this whole postpartum depression thing, it was great to get out and meet some other bloggy moms from the area. The event was co-hosted by ClubMomMe, a community for parents and parents-to-be to network, socialize, and get clued in on new baby products and helpful tips in the overwhelming “oh-goodness-we-have-to-keep-this-small-human-alive-and-thriving” world. I met with the nice ladies of Club Momme, and found that there will be a stroller-friendly 5k coming this fall in the Bay Area! I’m quite excited about that, since it will give me a little extra push to actually finish up my Couch-to-5k program that I’ve started and stopped about five times since I was cleared for exercise. Maybe this will become a running blog again!

The launch party was tons of fun and I got to meet a bunch of really cool moms and bloggers, and Buttercup did her thing of looking cute and squishy and pulling off the “baby can’t even” quite nicely.

IMG_7912

I can’t even. Nope, can’t even.

Thank you to StitchFix, Club MomMe, and all the great sponsors for this event! I can’t wait to schedule my next Fix with real petite pants that I don’t have to take to a tailor to hem! 😀

Make it a great day, everyone!

Disclaimer: I was invited to the launch party, all opinions are my own. These are not affiliate links, because I’m not that cool. And I buy my own StitchFix fixes because I like them.

A First-Timer’s Experience at Massage Envy Spa

In all fairness, I’m pretty horrible at self-care. I know what I should do, but I usually ignore all of that preventative maintenance stuff. Stretching after a run? Who has time for that? My hamstring’s bothering me again, but I’ll just walk it off instead of breaking out my therapy ball and doing some rolling. I’m not even a very good flosser. But a couple of the things I keep meaning to do a better job lately of is getting routine massages and doing a better job of my skin care routine. Fortunately, my friends at Massage Envy Spa seemed to telepathically know that I really needed to get a good prenatal massage and facial in before Baby v2.0 makes her arrival, so they offered me an opportunity to check out their massage and facial services. I had not been to a Massage Envy Spa before, but my sister is a member and has only had good things to say about it. And she’s right; my first experience was fabulous and I can’t wait to go again!

l.jpg

Oh, and before you get all wowed by my sudden improvement in photography, I didn’t take any pictures during my visit. It felt weird. So these are some photos from the Massage Envy Spa website.

Setting up my appointment was easy. You go online to massageenvy.com, find a convenient location near you, and fill out the appointment request form. At least, that’s how I did it. They called me back promptly to confirm the date, time, and services I requested. I had originally scheduled my massage for Saturday afternoon, but then Hulk and I had a major “I thought you were watching Squish” moment when we realized we had both booked non-preschooler activities for ourselves on Saturday. So I called them Friday to reschedule, and they were able to move my appointment to Sunday evening no problem. Which turned out to be a brilliant move, really. I am always booking my massage appointments Sunday night so I can just fall into bed and tackle Monday morning stress-free and well-rested!

My appointment-booker-person advised me to come a few minutes early so I could fill out the first-timer paperwork. I was getting a prenatal massage and facial, so I filled out a couple of quick forms with some brief medical and skincare history, what’s been bothering me, what I’m looking to get out of my service, and other good stuff for my therapists to know. I was pleased with the attentiveness of the staff. They offered me a glass of water and a trip to the restroom before I was introduced to my therapist and escorted to the treatment room. We chatted briefly about the paperwork notes I had completed and what I was looking to focus on (my crunchy computer muscles in my arms and shoulders) and then it was down to business.

l.jpg-2
The Nap, I mean, Treatment Room

The treatment room was just right. The lighting was dim, they were playing some soothing music, and the temperature was cool enough where I wasn’t sweating like crazy but the warm table and blankets made me quite comfortable. For prenatal massage, there is a couple of ways I’ve done it. One is with a special table with a cut-out for the belly in the middle, but I’ve only had that done once. The way most places do it that don’t have the belly-cut-out table is for you to lie on one side with pillows to bolster you up. Since I’m a huge neck-and-shoulder massage junkie, I actually prefer this to the belly table. I feel like they can really get in and do things one side at a time, and sometimes the belly table is made for normal size humans and not petite little 5’0″ me, so it was quite comfortable. That hour was over with much too quickly, let me tell you.

After my massage I was offered another glass of water (yay hydration! I was getting parched) and then my facial therapist came in. He and I chatted about my skincare routine, what I was looking for in my treatment, and told me what treatment he was going to provide for me. We skipped the facial peel, since it contains some stuff that’s not good for pregnant women to use, but we did the rest of the Environmental Shield Vitamin C product line facial, which is great since that’s the skin care routine I’ve been using. Now, I never get facials. I’ve had one in my life, and that was several years ago off a Groupon. So I have not much to compare it to. And normally I have pretty great skin, so it never occurs to me to seek out facials as part of my usual routine (he kept telling me “your skin is like butter!” which made my day). So after the series of steaming, gooping stuff on, wiping it off, gooping really nice-smelly stuff on, wiping it off, wrapping my face in warm towels, doing a bit of “extraction” on my nose, and gooping more stuff on I really didn’t know what to expect. But holy wow, if my skin was like butter before, it was like silk now. I couldn’t believe how soft it was! I was absolutely glowing. And I wish I took a picture of my massage/facial hair. It’s like bed head with a glow.

pin_hamster_pic-2
Kinda like this, only not as cute.

After a final glass of water, I thanked my therapists and checked out, in a floaty cloud of post-pampering dazed bliss. Good thing I only had a block to walk to get home. And as I mentioned before, getting my treatments done on a Sunday night was brilliant. I floated home and right to bed, with my stress level back to a reasonable baseline and all of my achy spots relieved, ready to tackle the week.

The moral of the story? Be kind to yourself and get a spa day booked.

San Francisco Ultimate Women’s Expo Recap

I am really excited about this post! It’s my first real “blogger review!” Hey, I’m a real blogger now!

A few weeks back, I was contacted by Massage Envy Spa with an invitation to the San Francisco Ultimate Women’s Expo to check out the event and hang out at the Massage Envy Spa booth. You mean you want me to spend an afternoon shopping exhibits, snacking on free samples of delectables, AND get a free massage? Um, okay!

So on Sunday my friend Katie and I headed to the San Bruno Convention Center to attend the Expo. Or as I started to refer to it as, the Weekend Shopstravaganza of Awesomeness.

IMG_7022

Thanks to my Massage Envy Spa “guest” status, we were snuck into the venue right before the doors opened so we could quickly scoop the loop and check out all of the exhibits before the doors opened and unleashed a tidal wave of estrogen-infused fury.

IMG_6998

While the other, more responsible bloggers were probably taking pristine pictures of the other exhibits and making them all artistic and stuff, I’m noticing things like, “how cool, they changed one of the men’s rooms to a women’s room because there are, like, 900% more women at this event then men!”

IMG_6980

That’s thinking ahead, kids. What can I say; I’m eight months pregnant and can appreciate proactive restroom placement.

I digress. After perusing some of the booths, I headed to the Massage Envy Spa booth, which was I think the most popular exhibit in the entire event. They were giving free massages and skin care assessments. So awesome.

IMG_6994

My fellow blogger Amber and I were greeted and invited to get our skin assessed. I got to stick my head in this space age-y box with some sort of blacklight or something in it.

IMG_6992-0

The light displays all sorts of features on your face that natural light hides, like skin thickness/delicacy and age spots from sun damage. I have light freckles that stand out more when I’ve been in the sun, but it was freaky to see how under the special light my entire face is blasted with these dark marks. I also have delicate skin around my eyes, but the skin around my mouth is pretty think and robust. They wrote down the notes of the exam and made a product recommendation based on the Murad skin care line.

Massage Envy Spa offers several lines of Murad skin care formulas to individualize your unique skin care needs. Since my skin is showing all of that potential sun damage, I went with the Environmental Shield Vitamin C treatment line. I received a complimentary kit to try out, so in a couple weeks of use I’ll let you know how I like it. So far, I love the fragrance – it’s citrusy and so fresh, and I only have to apply a small amount to get what I need out of it. More on the Murad Environment Shield Healthy Skin Regiment Kit to come!

After our skin assessments, we were treated to a massage. It took them a few minutes to find a prenatal-certified therapist that was free, but oh man was she worth the wait. She went to town on my “mousing muscles” in my right shoulder. What can I say, I work on computers for a living. I really need to do more massage; I was totally floating on that “massage high” for a good hour afterwords.

IMG_6990

My post-massage goober face, with Terry from Massage Envy and Amber.

Then I headed back out to the expo to make impulsive purchases fueled by my massage coma.

IMG_7003

New running shoe twinsies! We scored some discounted “slightly loved” shoes at the Road Runner’s booth. I am going to love these new-to-me Saucony Hurricanes once I’m ready to hit the road again. I told Katie that she is now obligated as my shoe twinsie to help get me back into shape after baby.

That was the best way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Thanks again to Massage Envy Spa and the San Francisco Ultimate Women’s Expo for putting on such a great event! I hope to be back next year (most likely with a small human in tow).

IMG_7020

Oh, I may have taken a celebrity shot with Wendy Williams. Or, a gigantic cardboard cutout of Wendy Williams. Is she that tall in real life?

Blogging Fears [Thinking Out Loud #1]

Can I confess something? Lately I’ve been more and more afraid about blogging. Which is stupid, I know, but I want to have my blog express my desire to unabashedly put myself out there all “here I am” in a blaze of sass and style. But what I feel like I actually put out there pales in comparison to what I really want to do. For a lot if reasons, fear being one of them.

See, I’m trying to do a lifestyle blog. And in my head I am living my own version of healthy. But when I look back on my days, I can’t imagine anyone would believe me. I’m living this weird hybrid of paleo/”healthy” SAD/whatever the hell I want, and I just feel weird about it. On one hand, who cares. This is how I live, this is what I do. On the other hand, what message am I sending? What is my goal in all this? To show you can eat fried shrimp and still feel like a normal human? How it’s hard to work and tend kiddos and travel and eat right/exercise but you do what you can because that’s what you have to do? I could try harder. But on a deep level, I don’t wanna. I’m doing good with where I’m at, a good balance between hanging in there and not feeling stressed about being too far one way or the other.

I guess there’s a little comparison trap in there, too. I follow folks that have green on their plate every meal, awesome “OOTD” posts (outfit of the day for all of your social media misfits; don’t feel bad, that one took me a few weeks to decipher), contribute to all the fun link-ups and still have engaging, original content. And the Tweeting. Who has time to Tweet?!? That’s not me. I barely have the time for the “oh crap, I should post now,” throw it in the iPhone app with some blurry pictures and hope it reads coherently. Because that’s me.

I guess in my head I want this blog to be one thing, but in reality it’s something completely different. It’s just an extension of me. It’s my lifestyle, it’s what’s in my head, it’s a reflection of my life and how I choose to live it.

I don’t use a photo editor. 90% of my posts are written on my phone while standing on the commuter train because there are no more empty seats. I don’t post “healthy” food, and I don’t take enough pictures to properly document festive occasions such as birthdays and baby updates. I wish I could, but at the end of the day that’s not what I make time for. Instead, I sit and chat with Hulk for an hour in the evening before dinner, catching up on our day and some alone time to decompress. I sit with Squish watching “Cars” for the seventh time that day or help him race his trains across the kitchen floor. I don’t photoshop, I don’t scour the internet for interesting articles to share. I live my life, and when I can I blog about it.

At first pass, I feel “blog guilt” about it. I should be doing more, but at the end of the day I just choose to spend my time doing other things (like catching up on sleep). So in a sense, this blog is totally 100% authentically me, in a “here it is, take it or leave it,” way. Because that is who I am, and really, at the end of the day, that is what I want to be on this blog.

Thank you to Amanda at Running with Spoons for the Thinking Out Loud Thursday link-up opportunity!

Liebster Award!

Okay, so I feel terrible about this. But I’m a horrible person, so this should not come as news. But back in May, Christine at the Marshall Campus Rec blog nominated me for a Liebster Award! And what did I do? NOTHING!! So, here I am begging for forgiveness and trying to make up for lost time. Thank you, Christine, you rock. And the rest of you should head over to the Marshall Campus Rec blog, check it out, grab some workout ideas, and say hey.

clip_image002_thumb1

Anyway, what is the Liebster Award? Well, it’s an award to recognize new(ish) bloggers to promote blog recognition, find new blogs, generating blog bonds, and generally promote the small(ish) blog community. All good things, all good things.

As the recipient of this award, I am obliged with the following actions:

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you (Thank you!)
  2. Answer the 11 questions they came up with
  3. Nominate 11 other blogs with less than 500 followers (I’m assuming this is an estimate on my part. I hope I don’t offend; “What do you mean you think I only have 500 followers?!?” Remember, I’m socially awkward.)
  4. Create 11 new questions for the nominees to answer (mwa ha ha!)
  5. Tag your nominees and notify them (tag! You’re it!)

Fun, right? Okay, let’s get to my

  1. If you could have any ability or talent in the world, what would it be? For realistic abilities that others have that I don’t, it would either be the ability to sing on-key or a photographic memory, because  that would be kind of cool. For supernatural abilities, being able to fly/teleport or telekinesis. Anything that will enable me to be lazier than I already am.
  2. What piece of workout equipment best describes you? Squat rack. It’s a standard. Basic. Versatile. Always there for you. And it’ll kick your ass if needed.squat-to-parallel(source)
  3. If you had a day a year where you could eat three things you wanted without gaining a single pound or feeling guilty, what would the three things be? I’m assuming “feeling like crap” is another consequence that would be unobserved in this scenario. In that case, jelly beans, pizza, and real Coke.
  4. If you hosted a dinner party and could only invite three people, who would they be and why (living or deceased)? Ooh, this is a hard one! Seth MacFarlane, because he would be really hilariously offensive and piss everyone off, Jennifer Lawrence, because she would be a really amusing conversationalist and could probably put up with Seth, and Marie Antoinette, because she would be good at gossip and might bring up the status of the dinner party having royalty there and all. Plus you know, cake. We’ll eat cake.
  5. What is your favorite TV show right now? Archer!fx-2013-premiere-dates-justified-anger-management-archer-legit2(source)
  6. What is your favorite “healthy food” and why? Almond butter, because it’s tasty, versatile, and satiating
  7. Any healthy New Year’s Resolutions this year? What were they? How are they coming along? I didn’t really have resolutions, more like goals or focus for the year. It was to heal up all my running injuries (check, I think!), get pregnant and have a healthy baby (again, check, I think!), and to just not fall back in my health habits (sorta check, it’s been up and down).
  8. If a movie was made about your life, who would play you? Anna Kendrick, because I’m told she resembles me. And I say “she resembles me” because I believe I am older, so I was here first.994886_564388993625372_749500879_n(source)
  9. What’s your favorite quote/motto right now? Someone told me that Mark Zuckerburg said if you don’t have enough bugs, you’re not developing fast enough. This is pretty applicable to my current job (I work in software) and in life in general. If you’re not getting dirty/making mistakes/losing/blowing stuff up, you’re not trying or doing it right.
  10. If you could pick one store to have unlimited access to for the rest of your life (free shopping sprees, go in at whatever time you want), what would it be and why? Ha, at first I was going to say Target, then I was all, “what am I thinking?” Go big or go home: Harrod’s in London! Pure shopping magic right there.
  11. What are you looking forward to most this summer? FINALLY getting some real pool time in, and all the trips and vacations we have planned (and the sporadic ones I know will be coming!)

Whee! That was fun. Okay, now you go!

My nominees (and you guys, I’m pretty sure you have a billion more followers than I. I just think you’re awesome and I enjoy following you!):

Okay, and here are your questions, kids!

  1. What’s your favorite knock-knock joke?
  2. It’s 6:30 PM, you just walked in the door, and you find out your mother-in-law/ex-boyfriend you’re not quite over/boss and his wife are coming over for dinner. No time to run to the store. Quick, what’s in your kitchen and what will you make for your super last-minute guest you really want to impress?
  3. Favorite vacation? Better yet, least favorite vacation?
  4. Any stupid human tricks you have the ability to compulsively perform?
  5. What’s the most embarrassing thing you’ve done for money?
  6. What do you top on your frozen yogurt? Or if you’re not a fan of the fro-yo, your ice cream sundae?
  7. Describe you’re favorite t-shirt that you own (or steal repeatedly from your significant other). Color? Brand? Fabric texture? How/where do you wear it?
  8. Starbucks, Peets, or Dunkin’? What do you order?
  9. How was your day?
  10. Favorite sport to play? To watch? To hate?
  11. How many Facebook friends do you have? What percentage do you think you actually know?

Okay, go! And if I didn’t nominate you, I’m sorry and you can kick me in the shins the next time you see me. Or, play along in the comments if you feel so inclined and inspired!

Thanks again for the nomination, Christine, and y’all make it a great day!
