Hey everyone!  Thanks so much for all your long run fuel tips yesterday!  I can’t wait to try them out!  Now on to some important things:


I’ve been nominated by four amazing blogs for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award (AKA the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants Blog Award!).  I am so honored that the following girls nominated me – I frequent all of their blogs and I’m so happy that they thought of me!

3. Answer the questions

5. Post the links to the nominee’s blogs and notify them on their blog


Favorite color?

My favorite color is yellow!  It’s not really a popular color but I love how bright and sunny it is.  Yellow was one of my wedding colors and I think it made the day beautiful!

Favorite animal?

This is a kind of weird one, but I love bears!  Back story:  my husband’s hebrew name is Eitan Dov, which means “strong bear”.  His mom always bought him bear themed stuff and when we moved in together we started collecting bear stuff!  I’m talking super ugly bear statues that we find hilarious and no one else would buy (don’t judge, you know you all have some sort of random thing you collect!).  When we planned our wedding we definitely kept with the bear theme!  I used some of the cuter bear stuff as decorations, gummy bears were our favors, and I bought Andrew some bear cuff links as part of his wedding present.  We even acted like bears at the end of the day!  And kept it up on the honeymoon  🙂

Favorite non-alcoholic drink?

Milkshakes!  I’m kind of obsessed and will do anything for a milkshake!

Facebook or Twitter?

This one is tough…but Facebook wins!  I love connecting with groups of people (like my fellow SPAs and the SPA running group!).

Favorite pattern?

POLKA DOTS!!!!!  I’m totally obsessed.  For some reason my blog doesn’t really reflect that, so if you notice my background changing in the near future that’s why  🙂  I have been loving all the polka dot clothes in stores lately.  I’ve got a few polka dot sweaters, scarves, and even tights!

What is your passion?

Hmmm…I think I’ve got quite a few!  I’m super passionate about being outdoors – any time I get to go hiking or camping I’m insanely happy.  I’m also obviously passionate about running and blogging.  But mostly I think I’m passionate about living life to the fullest – sometimes I’m not good at this but overall I think I’ve done some amazing things and will continue to look for ways to make my life even awesome in the future!  Life is too short to do boring stuff!

Time to tag!

There’s so many awesome blogs out there but here are a few that I love!

I could go on and on with my favorite blogs, but I think these are some awesome ones that haven’t been nominated yet!  Go check them out!

Feel free to answer some of the above questions so I can get to know everyone better!  What would you say your biggest passion is?  What is your current favorite blog?

  1. I LOVE all these pics! That engagement pic is fab (YAY DOTS!). Your wedding photos are beautiful too. Your bridesmaids all look fantastic in yellow! (And your dress is amazing!)

    1. Thanks! I actually totally forgot to even talk about this, but my wedding dress was swiss dot tulle! You could only tell when you were close to it, but I was SO EXCITED about having a polka dot wedding dress!

  2. You and your husband acting like bears is too cute! Love those pics!
    I may have to travel to Hershey just to try that chocolate PB milkshake – seriously my 2 fav things combined =)

    1. Do it! Hershey is the best! It’s seriously this tiny little down in the middle of nowhere but if you love chocolate it’s totally worth the drive! Last time I went my husband got the York Peppermint Patty shake and it was almost better than the PB one…almost.

  3. LOVE THIS! The engagement shoot is so awesome, I love that idea! If I can ever trick anybody into marrying me I am totes doing that because I love Fall 🙂 We are TOTALLY getting Hershey’s milkshakes after the 10K. Deal?!

    1. Yes we are!!!! I can’t wait! Last year I finished around 8:30 am and we waited around until Chocolate World opened at 9:00 am. I figured the mix of chocolate and peanut butter made it a good post-run snack 🙂 And fall is my favorite too! We wanted to do a fall wedding but fall is so unpredictable here with all the random snowstorms and hurricanes we’ve had the past few years and I didn’t want to have to cancel due to weather. Our wedding ended up being the hottest day of the year so far (June 1st) and I was dying in that dress, so I’m not sure if that was really much better!
