still blogging after 23 days

24 straight days of blogging is a lot!! i find myself searching for things to write about that will be interesting to read about. (i have also, apparently, given up on the rule that you can't end a sentence with a preposition.)

anyway... i'm bound and determined to get a post blogged for today, yet i'm lacking the inspiration needed to get it started. we all know what happens now... oh, yes! it's a list!!

without further ado, to celebrate 24 straight days of blogging, here are 24 things you may (or may not) know about me (in no particular order):

1. i've been blogging for almost five years, yet most of you don't know my real name
2. i blogged a lot more before i stumbled upon facebook and twitter
3. i am the oldest of four girls. it's not always easiest to be oldest
4. i was born and raised in new york, and i now live in north carolina
5. i will never consider myself "southern," although i don't think i'm a "new yorker," either
6. i don't want to live in north carolina anymore. well, at least in tiny town
7. Fall is my favorite time of year
8. i always light a pumpkin spice candle on september first
9. even if it's 90 degrees outside
10. i have met my best and closest friends on the internet
11. i don't have any tattoos, but i plan to get one soon
12. i've recently lost 51 lbs and need a new wardrobe
13. i would love to find the perfect pair of brown boots
14. i manage a hotel, yet find it hard to relax on vacation in a hotel
15. i'm finding it challenging to write a post that is longer than 140 characters
16. it is hard for me to be friends with other women. i'm usually "one of the guys"
17. this summer, i did cartwheels on the beach at sunset. just because.
18. last week, i ran 20 miles
19. i drink my coffee black. in the Fall (only) i will drink flavored coffees
20. i want to go to Australia
21. or minnesota
22. i have become a big fan of SkinnyGirl margaritas
23. and green smoothies
24. i have to leave you now for Alec Baldwin on SNL

Way to GOOOO!!!

I am currently on a Fitness Journey and still have a way to go. I'm so impressed. It is HARD work.

I also watched Alec Baldwin on SNL.

Let me guess....your real name is Esmerelda, and your green smoothies really are just a milkshake with green food coloring???

John said...

I <3 list posts :-)

I think I know your real name.

When we become rich from blogging, we'll take a huge trip over to Australia to go running. Ok?

Congrats on the 24 straight days of blogging! You are inspiring me to do better on my own blog. (It's much neglected as of late.)

Holly said...

You are rocking the blog--and the running!!

Lists are always in style--and sometimes just the thing to get over a bloggy speedbump.

How are you making your smoothies? Have you found a favorite recipe yet?

Rob said...

Drinking flavoured coffee may see you banned from entering Australia.

Autumn is my favorite time of year, too! Having grown up with three brothers, I'm also more comfortable being "one of the guys". I don't live in Australia or Minnesota, but you can come stay with me anytime, hotel-free!
And tattoos are fun. My suggestion is to put it somewhere you don't see that often. I forget about mine so it's like a pleasant little surprise every time I catch sight of it. It's hard to get sick of/annoyed about something you don't really notice.

I can definitely see the weight loss. WOW. I am so beyond impressed and inspired.

We are so much alike. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that we're birthday twins.
