by Hillary on April 18, 2014

Have you seen this survey roaming around your favorite blogs? This is what we call lazy blogging or a TMI post. Either way, this is how we’re doing Nutrition Nut today. If you’re a newer reader (welcome!), you might learn a thing or two – or twenty – about moi.

 << 20 Questions >>

1. What brings you the most joy? a really tough workout or run // phone conversations with my Grandma // quality time with my mom // hugs


2. What are your vices? ice cream // The Bachelor(ette) // Lululemon


3. What is on your nightstand? I don’t have a nightstand, fancy that!

4. Do you have a secret talent? Hmmm… not that I can think of. I was a competitive tap dancer.

5. What is your greatest indulgence? self-care (i.e. monthly pedicures) // travel


6. What should every woman try at least once in her life? living alone

7. What makes you laugh? my family & P



8. What is one thing people would be surprised to know about you? I’ve been in 3 TV commercials.

9. What is on your bucket list? Europe & publish a book

10. What is on your feet right now? black crochet Toms

11. How did you make your first dollar? lemonade stands in the summer – my neighbor and I made bank!

12. What superstition do you believe in? I don’t think I am all that superstitious… but I’m not sure I’d fly on Friday the 13th.

13. What items in your closet do you wear the most? Unfortunately, my 2 pairs of Danskos (to work) & I wear my Anthropologie and Gap vests all fall/winter.

14. What is the best gift you have ever received? my college education // family trips to Alaska & Hawaii


15. What is on your liquor shelf? I don’t have a designated liquor shelf. In the summer, you can usually find a bottle of rum in my freezer for raspberry mojitos.

16. What is on your kitchen counter? toaster // my pink KitchenAid mixer // fruit bowl (bananas!) // glass jars filled with oats

17. What would you never leave home without? iPhone

18. What movie has the greatest ending? I’m not a movie gal. Any chick flick ending — predictable and sweet.

19. Who is on the guest list for your ideal dinner party? Robyn Coale // Sarah Cook // Lee Hersh — we’d make and enjoy a healthy gourmet feast!

20. What is one thing you wish you had known when you were younger? 


Happy Weekending!
