Friend Makin' Mondays: Getting To Know Each Other

This weekend has flown by! I spent so much time doing miscellaneous projects around here that I didn't get to everything on my list. Oh well, it gives me a chance to try to get my daily schedule a little more refined and productive. I'm also starting Week 5 on my Couch25K program tomorrow and was hoping for a bit warmer weather so I could try my first outside run - with the ice storm we got tonight I'm thinking that's not going to be very plausible.

Theres only 2 days left on my DietBet and am happy to report I only have 0.6 pounds to lose to win! Wish me luck - its doable for sure! I'll also be working on a few design changes to Sleeved In The City this week so be out on the lookout for that - nothing major just tweaking the font some so its easier for everyone to read!

Its that time again ladies and gents...if you've take part in FMM before then you know the routine. If youre new, simply take a moment to answer this week’s question on your own blog then add your link in the comments section at All The Weigh - encourage your readers to do the same and we can all connect! Here's this week's topic:

Getting To Know Each Other
1. What is your favorite color? Depends on what it is. In general; I love grey, yellow, purple and teal.

2. Share one or more of your talents.  Painting my nails, cooking, baking, organizing, and coupon clipping to name a few.

3. If you were spending the day getting to know someone new, where would you want to go?  Somewhere in the city; I'm a sucker for Navy Pier and Michigan Ave. Any of the museums.

4. What is your favorite meal?  Hmmm this ones a bit tricky since I can eat so little, think I'll have to go Chinese on this one.

5.  Do you prefer to text or talk?  For small chit-chat I'm good with texting, anything more and I'll want to talk - preferably in person as I don't like to talk on the phone.

6. Share something about yourself that might surprise someone that you’re getting to know. I'm very handy! I can change my own tire, oil and I even changed the brakes on my old Cutlass once. I also watch TV a total of 4 hours a month.

7. Do you color your hair? I colored it tonight actually, I mix my own product tho - hate boxed color and its so bad for your hair.

8. Do you wear glasses or contacts?  All about the goggles. Contacts are too expensive with my RX.

9. What is your favorite breakfast food?  French toast and bacon. Too bad I cant eat it. My go-to breakfast is an over-medium egg and chicken sausage link.

10. Would your friends say that you’re sarcastic?  I'm fluent in sarcasm as its my 2nd language.

11. Do you prefer salty or sweet?  Both. Sweet and salty. All of a sudden I want Chex Mix.

12. What is the first thing you notice about the opposite sex?  Teeth and smile. Cant get down with a jacked up grill.

13. What is the last movie you watched?  The Possession. I liked it, I'm really into the whole horror, paranormal, exorcism thing lately.

14.  Are you religious?  I believe in God but I wouldn't call myself religious. Spiritual, maybe?

15. Are you a neat freak, a slob, or somewhere in between?
<---- OCD

16. Share something from your bucket list that you hope to do someday.  Skydiving or hang-gliding. I'll be doing one or the other this October on my vacay to Florida!

17. Are you a risk taker, or do you prefer to play it safe? Depends in what area. Either way, I always asses the risk and use my head.

18. Have you ever worn braces?  Nope, my parentals blessed me with perfect teefies.

19. Would you rather spend an evening at a theater or at a club?  Theater (said in a British accent, of course)

20. If you could have three wishes, what would one of them be?  Health, money, three more wishes.

Now it’s your turn to answer this week’s questions.  Don’t forget to go back and link up in the comments!  Happy Monday!


  1. Following you over from FMM!
    I like the idea of getting to know someone via a walk thru the museum!! Good Idea!!
    I have been enjoying reading thru some of your blog and I will be back!!!
    Keep up the great work on the WL!

  2. Came by from FMM. Chicago is such a fun city, but yeah, not conducive to outdoor training this time of year. Impressive on the car maintenance!
