Name Your Favorite

With the dark rain clouds hovering and some weird hot and cold body chills I have going on, I want nothing more but to curl up on the couch with a warm blanket and call it a day.

I woke up with a headache, but I think it might be turning into a migraine, so I’m going to make this post a quick one and hopefully (finally) kick it to the curb with a few minutes of lights/sounds out time. Hoping it goes quickly and I can move on with my day and stay productive. Migraines are just… the worst. Right? #aintnobodygottimefodat


Lunch was definitely worth sharing today. I have been craving a salad and finally had enough fresh vegetables in the refrigerator to make one at home.

Spinach, cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots, feta cheese, black beans, and black eyed peas (warmed up!) drizzled in grape seed oil and lemon juice.

I absolutely loved the flavor of the lemon juice on there. So refreshing!

Also refreshing was this Vita Coco peach & mango coconut water.

Name Your Favorite

Before I go, I thought it would be fun to take part in a quick survey I saw Courtney post a couple of days ago. I’m such a sucker for them. And this one is probably the easiest one to answer, ever.

Feel free to play along by completing your own or sharing some of your favorites in the comments section!

Name Your Favorite…

• Person: Quite possibly this clown that is a constant reminder to never take life too seriously.

• Color: I don’t really have one. Is that weird? It used to be pink, but lately I’ve been all about greens.

• Food: Italian. Then Mediterranean. Then Mexican.

• Smell: Coffee. And if it’s first thing in the morning, you get thirty extra bonus points.

coffee smells like love


• Book: Still going with one I read years ago, Heaven Is For Real.

• Movie: Bridesmaids. I could never watch that one too many times. There’s just so many great lines.

• Time of Day: Around 8 p.m. Typically, all of my work is done for the day, I’m done making and cleaning up after dinner, showered, in my pajamas, and just settling into enjoying the night at home with Scott.

• Day of the Week: Saturday. I love starting the weekend with a run outside, grabbing breakfast, then heading to the marketplace for fresh produce when we have a free one.

• Thing to Do When Bored: Catch up on Bloglovin’ or play on the floor with our fur babies.

• Celebrity: Nick Lachey. I’m sorry but that man will always be on “my list”. Also, I’ve had a super crush on Adam Levine lately. He’s so, so…. funny.

• Drink: wine or Loopy vodka and soda water. Don’t judge.

• TV Show: Friends. Always and forever.

Friends Reruns


• Fruit: Berries or kiwi.

• Vegetable: Peppers. No corn. No sweet potatoes. Definitely sweet potatoes. Loaded with veggies.

• Store/Shop: Target, TJ Maxx or Marshall’s.

• Workout: Running, barre, Pilates, yoga or HIIT. (<- Just posted a new one this morning!)

• Quote:

Creating Yourself life quote housewife galmour

• Boy’s Name: Not telling. (Just in case!)

• Girl’s Name: Same answer as above. And, interestingly enough, it’s a name that could be used for both a girl or a boy.

Besides that one, I have always loved Emma or Haley.

• Potato Chip Flavor: Salt and Vinegar, hands down.

• Ice Cream Flavor: Mint Chocolate Chip or Cookies ‘n Cream (only if there’s real Oreo crumbles).

• Season: Fall (ahh, Pumpkin!)

neighborhood trees in fall

• Dessert: Chocolate. Literally anything that has anything to do with chocolate. Except bugs. That’s just weird.

• Life Hack: Um. Where was this when I was growing up?

    Hope you don’t have a terrible migraine that lasts forever :( I’ve never experienced one before, so I can’t even imagine.

    That sofa fort looks crazy cool! I want to do that to my parents couch when I go home for a visit (ours is leather and doesnt have removable cushions) – my nephews will think I’m the best… ever. haha!

      Yeah, they’re not fun. But I can usually kick them with lights out, something to eat, and the right meds. Feeling much better today! Thanks.

    Ice cream: I usually go for chocolate chip cookie dough
    Movie: You’ve Got Mail – it’s an oldie but a goodie! I can watch this over and over; I love the music and the story
    Life hack: How did I not know about these? I would say, as a librarian, why not try a book?
    I totally agree with you about fall as my favorite season – pumpkin, cooler temps, leaves changing…ahh, I’m ready for it already :)
    Feel better soon!

    Ice cream: Rocky Road, but only the kind with real mini marshmallows, not the marshmallow swirl
    Movie: Mean Girls!
    Life hack: clipping a binder clip on the edge of a desk and threading cords through it so they’re always accessible (I’m talking to you iPhone cord that’s always laying on the ground far away when I need it)

    • says

      Rocky Road! YES! Love Mean Girls (“You can’t sit with us!”) and that’s a great life hack. I can’t ever find my cords when I need them!
