    • Oh you are more than welcome girl! I just don’t understand how some people don’t eat after dinner. I could never do that. I’d probably wake up throughout the night starving & ready to chew my arm off!

  1. Those were great questions- I loved reading your answers! I am actually super scared of sharks as well. My boyfriend surfs a lot and I am terrified he will be eaten alive! ahhh!
    I always have to have a snack/dessert before bed too. I can’t stand waking up hungry in the night!

  2. What a fun post! I eat dessert almost every evening after dinner also and it almost always includes some form of nut butter! I’m trying to limit myself lately and am using chocolate PB2 more than regular. I’m so addicted to nut butter!

  3. LOVE the tattoo sayings! What a wonderful idea. And I’m a serious country music girl, too — I’ve seen so many of my favorite artists! I’m actually moments away from heading to a smaller scale, local country music festival tonight ๐Ÿ™‚

    Enjoy your weekend, girly!

  4. I used to fold my dirty laundry when I lived in a dorm because I put off doing laundry for so long it was the only way it would all fit in my hamper. In my defense it was $2.50 to do a load of laundry and I wanted to get my money’s worth!
    And skipping 6 monkey bars? Beast.

    • Dangg girl, I do not blame you one bit. I would’ve shoved every item I could fit into that washer & dryer.

      Yeah I was a beast what can I say.. haha… until I did it one to many times & fell and broke my arm :[ haha

  5. I love country too!! It is so fun to run to. Gimme some Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean and I’m a happy girl! Come back to the states and lets go to a concert together!! I also think we are long lost twins because I am terrified of sharks too and I can’t stand Twilight. And yes, I teared up when Gabby clinched the gold.

    Random (sortof) question, but why German in the tattoos? They sound beautiful!

    • I know this it’s reallyyyy far away, BUT I may be coming home in March to visit the family & run the Rock n Roll DC 1/2. What state exactly do you live in? I’d loveee to meet my blogging twinny!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

      We both have German in us. Also we both got the infinity symbol in each others birth stone color
