Blogger Award Randomness

2.  My favorite thing to photograph

I’m not sure I have a “favorite” thing to photograph.  I love taking photos, capturing the memories.  I almost always have my camera on me.  Since I’m still learning to use my DSLR I like to take any opportunity to practice using it.  As a matter of fact --- I’m at a family wedding today acting as “photographer” and taking photos :)

 

3.  My favorite thing to cook

I love to cook.  I find it rewarding, relaxing and therapeutic.  I like to create meals from scratch, using fresh ingredients.  But I also enjoying throwing together a quick and easy meal every once in a while too.  I also love to bake.  I enjoy reading food blogs and finding new recipes to try as well as looking through my cookbooks or cooking magazines.  I have a hug binder full of recipes that I’ve tired and loved or want to try someday.  I’ve got a few recipes on the blog but I often forget to take photos so I don’t post them too often.

 

4.  My favorite way to exercise

Running!!!

Here are all my race recaps and here is my current training schedule :)

5.  My favorite movies

My favorite movie is The Sound of Music.  I have no idea how old I was when I fell in love with this movie, but its been my favorite for a long time.  I really enjoy musicals and it is such a classic movie.

Other close contenders for favorite movie are:  Beaches, Dirty Dancing, 10 Things I Hate About You, Gone With the Wind {that I only recently just watched for the first time and LOVED it} and any and all of the Twilight movies :)

 

6.  My favorite article of clothing

I have a ton of clothes.  You’d be amazed.  Seriously.  I have more clothes than I know what to do with.  But I also have a hard time getting rid of items, though I am trying to get better about getting rid of anything that I haven’t worn in a year.  I don’t really find myself wearing the same thing over and over … I am totally loving the new pair of capri’s I bought last week in a SMALLER size :)

CIMG6599 
I share this dresser with the husband {he uses the top drawer}.  The middle drawer is all my short skirts that can not hang, capri’s, and jeans.  The bottom drawer is all my running clothes {except socks and sports bras}.

CIMG6600 My share of half of the larger closet in our master bedroom. 

CIMG6601 Also on my side of the larger master bedroom closet is that hanging rack on the left which holds race t-shirts, shorts and tank top cami’s.  And that three drawer plastic cart has sports bras in the top with my running socks, tube tops and tank tops in the middle drawer, and bathing suits in the bottom drawer.

CIMG6602 My other dresser.  Socks & undies in the top, tank tops in the 2nd drawer, pj’s in the third drawer, t-shirts in the bottom.

CIMG6603Two storage bins under the bed that currently have “winter” clothes in them.  And that bottom drawer of my bedside table has more pj’s.

CIMG6604  All my dresses hang in half of the guest room closet along with all my sweatshirts {not pictured}.  My wedding dress is also in this closet, awaiting donation {I plan to donate it to Brides Against Breast Cancer}.  My jackets and hoodies hang in our coat closet in the hallway {not pictured}. 

Like I said … I have a lot of clothes!  Its hard to have “favorites” when I have sooo much.  Honestly, I think my favorite article of clothing might be my Urban Cow Half Marathon tech shirt from last years race and my black Nike capri’s that I wore at CIM last year {and wear for most of my long runs}.  Seriously.  Can you say “runnerd”?!?

 

7.  My favorite flower

Hmmm.  I’m going to have to say red roses.

8.  My favorite breakfast

French Toast, Homemade waffles or Pancakes.  Though I don’t make these often enough.  Regularly I have either a bagel thin or a bowl of greek yogurt with fresh fruit or a smoothie.  Sometimes I’ll jazz it up and have an egg white omelet with spinach and feta cheese.  And sometimes I’ll just have a bowl of cereal. 

 

Now, I’m going to tag:
