11 Random Things

Hello Everyone!

Happy Friday! :) This mornings breakfast was another cup of Chobani 0% plain yogurt with flax seed mixed in. Delicious as usual! I am so excited about it being Friday, weekends are the best!


11 Random Things

Let me start of by saying that have always been and still am a real sucker for any type of survey, questionnaire or chain e-mail. Most of them are pointless and just a pure waste of time, but some of them are actually kind of fun! I came across this one called the “11 Random Things” survey on Courtney’s blog yesterday, and knew that I just had to participate!  In case you haven’t seen it yet, here’s how it works:

  1. List 11 random things about myself
  2. Answer the 11 questions Courtney asked me
  3. Come up with 11 questions to ask other bloggers
  4. Tag 11 other bloggers to do this next


My 11 Random Things

1) I got my ears pierced when I was only 3 months old.

2)I hate pickles! I can’t stand the smell at all, and can’t eat anything that was even touched by a pickle or pickle juice!


3)I would go back to college in a second if I could!

4)I have absolutely no self control when it comes to banana chips! The Whole Foods brand is my favorite!

5)I don’t know how I ever lived without my Iphone.


6)I learned to speak Italian before English.

7)I am the first born and I have one younger brother.

8)I’m not particularly fond of the cube/office lifestyle, but I’ll do it for now while I try to figure it all out!


9)I’m ALWAYS COLD!!!! Same as Courtney!

10)I have a huge fear of driving in snow!


11)I have really bad eyesight. I wear contacts with a prescription of -6.75! :-o


Questions I have to Answer

1)Are you a morning person or a night owl?

I’m definitely more of a morning person. I would rather get things done in the morning and have the night to relax!

2)What’s the one piece of clothing you can’t live without?

I’m pretty attached to my leggings! They are just so comfy and can be dressed up or dressed down.

3)What’s your biggest pet peeve?

Haha, well it’s hard for me to choose just ONE, but I can’t stand when people chew with their mouths open/make noise when they chew. Along with that, anything that relates to bad table manners really annoys me!

4)Gum or Mints?

I have a slight obsession with both and am actively trying to lower my intake of both gum and mints. I love FIVE winter fresh flavored gum and mini winter-fresh flavored Altoids :)


5)Favorite Dessert?

Frozen Yogurt!


6)Do you have any tattoo’s or piercings?

I have my ear’s pierced but that’s it! I always wanted to get my belly button pierced when I was younger, but I am glad that I was too chicken to go through with it!

7)Do you believe in ghosts and/or the afterlife?

I do believe in the after life. I believe that once we die there is something/somewhere better for us.

8)What is your worst habit?

Chewing a whole pack of gum in less than 15minutes. It’s a nervous habit that I’m working on! I’m on 6 days of absolutely no gum!

9)If you could live anywhere in the world where would you live?

I do LOVE Boston, but I wish the winters were a little more tolerable. I’ve heard San Francisco is like Boston with nice weather, so maybe I would go there?

10)What is one thing you miss about being a kid?

I really miss grade school and high school. I loved the lifestyle of going to school from 8a.m-2p.m, playing sports, doing homework and going to bed.  I also miss a lot of my childhood friends who I don’t get to see as much anymore due to our ever changing and busy schedules!

11)If you had to change your name what would it be?

I really like my name but I also love the name Sofia.


11 Questions I came up with

1)What’s your favorite color?

2)What is the craziest/riskiest thing you have ever done?

3)What was your favorite age and why?

4)What is your ideal career?

5)How many hours a day do you spend blogging?

6)Coffee or tea?

7)Are you more of a girly girl or a tom boy?

8)What is your favorite store to shop at?

9)What do you wish you could be better at?

10)PC or MAC?

11)What’s your favorite healthy snack?

Do you participate in surveys? Or do you just think that they are a waste of time?



  1. I too miss college and have a serious fear of driving in the snow. Good think it rarely snows where I live!

  2. Hi! Popping over here to say hi to you now!

    Love your blog! I really like your background, very cool how you did that!

    I am ALWAYS cold too! My husband always says I am a walking dead person, lol!

    I can not live without my iphone either, love it!

    I was tagged 2x with this question fun by 2 bloggers, I need to do it!

    Happy Weekend !

  3. Hello!
    Thank you! My boyfriend is a graphic designer so he basically designed the whole thing! It’s still a work in progress but so far I happy with how it is looking :)
    Happy Friday!

  4. I am definitely with you on going back to college in a heartbeat! Oh how I miss it so!!

  5. I have a horrible gum chewing habit too! I think it started in college when I used to chew it while studying, and now I can’t seem to stop. I’ve tried giving it up, but only can make it a few days. At least I only chew sugarless Trident, but I know it still isn’t good for me!

  6. Me too! I’ve been good for about 2 weeks, but I know I am going to cave soon, I can feel it! I just love the minty fresh feeling it gives me! How much do you chew on average per day? At my worst I’d say I was chewing 1-1.5 packs per day! So bad, but I am getting better!

  7. Very first off would be to stop going to the fast food places and consuming greasy foods with lots of calories. It is constantly tempting and convenient to grab a burger or whatever from your favorite fast food place but this just isn’t going to enable you to along the way, it’ll cripple you and all your challenging work. In case you are not too over weight and just must shed those additional few pounds in order to get that six pack you’ve always wanted you may must focus and have dedication.

  8. Thanks to your blog loaded with so many information. Stopping by your blog helped me for getting what I was looking for.

  9. i hear ya on the bad eyesight. -9.50 for me!! :(
