11 Questions from Life Between the Miles

Having a few surprise days off has given me quite a lot of time to go through some blogs I've been meaning to catch up on, and as I was reading I saw that Sara from Life Between the Miles did a Liebster Award post.  Basically, it's a post that passes around from different bloggers to spread the love.  Because Sara and I have very similar reading lists, I figured I would just answer her questions and then you guys could play along in the comments.

Questions from Sara:
1. If you could spend the day with one famous person, who would it be and why?
Reba McEntire all the way!  She has been my idol ever since I can remember and she seems so down to earth and fun.
In theTop 10 Best Moments from my Life

2. What is an attribute you admire in others?
A sense of humor!  
3. If you were stranded on a deserted island, what would be the 3 things you would take with you?
Maddux, my best friend, and a good book.
Haha, couldn't leave this face behind.

4. If money was no object, what would you choose as your career?

I would totally be a dolphin trainer.
I missed my calling.

5. What is YOUR greatest achievement?
I think it was a lot of decisions that played into this one.  Basically, I moved on a gamble to do a program that had no guarantees of a real job and luckily after a ton of hard work it paid off and I am where I am today.  At the time I had to choose between an internship that would have definitely been a safer choice and this program and I can't even imagine how different my life would have been had I decided to stay in Pittsburgh.
Never would have met this guy! 

6. Why did you decide to start blogging?
Initially it was to keep tabs on my training for my second half marathon, BUT I soon realized that it only holds you accountable if you actually post and if you let others read it....  
7. What is your biggest pet peeve?

I really hate when the bottom of my pants gets wet.  Rain boots all the way!

8.What is your favorite pizza toppings?
I really love veggie pizzas (no mushrooms or uncooked onions). 
9. What is the theme song of your life?
Oh man, this is so hard.  Probably something ridiculously happy and upbeat like "It's Always a Good Time" by Owl City and Carly Rae ;-)
10. If you had $1,000 that you could spend on anything, what would you spend it on?
I would go shopping, but definitely would still shop the sales.  I think the most fun part of shopping is finding good deals :-)
Your turn!  Pick one or more of the questions and answer in the comments below!  Thanks again, Sara!!


  1. I loved all your answers, especially your song choice :)

    1. Haha, thanks! It was a hard decision, but it had to be something kind of goofy :-)

  2. Hi Lindsey. Been reading your blog for a lil while, also part of Sara's link special. (A) Wet bottom of pants are horrible, I'm with you. (B) Your pup is cute as anything. Love your pics of him.

    If you're interested, here's a link to my answers to the same questions.

    1. Haha, it shouldn't bother me as much as it does, but doesn't it seem like the bottoms never dry fast enough?! And thank youuu he is the love of my life! :-)

  3. Ah this is such a cute post! I've actually been thinking about question #10 a lot as bonuses come out next month at my job. I think I want to invest in a nice desktop computer! I have a 13in laptop and it is a pain to blog with! Infinite scrolling! I'm definitely adding your blog to the list of blogs I read :)

    1. Oh that's awesome, go for it! It's always fun being able to splurge a little :) Thank you for reading!!
