Randoms & my ABC's

happy st. patrick's day!

The Jumping on the Fit Train feature has been delayed until further notice. I am still watching TBL and I am still working toward my fitness goals, but my routine is pretty consistent and I know that can be boring to read over & over again. If any of you would like to talk/gossip about TBL, exercise, staying motivated, etc., please feel free to send me an e-mail. The show continues until the middle of May, and I will probably do the feature every now and then, especially if I find myself slacking or losing motivation. So it's probably not gone for good, just for now.

My best friend had her baby last night! She was in labor ALL day, and finally had a c-section late last night. Her son, Hunter Luke, was born 9 lbs 15 oz and 22 inches long. And he is seriously adorable. I wish I could have been there for the big event but luckily, our other best friend was there, constantly texting me and letting me know what was going on. My mom is going by the hospital today so I can't wait to hear her report on how mother and son are doing.

Hi to all of my new followers! I've seen a few new faces around recently, and it makes my heart happy. Blogging is so fun for me and I love all of the new bloggy friends I get to make! Please leave a comment so I can come check out your blogs; not all of you have a link attached to your profile so it can be hard for me to find you. Since I've got some new people here, now is as good a time as any to do the ABC's of me!

  • Age: 26 - soon to be 27 (in 39 short days).
  • Bed size: California King.
  • Chore you hate: Washing dishes, cleaning the kitchen.
  • Dogs: None right now, but I'd love to have one when I have a backyard.
  • Essential start to your day: Checking my e-mail.
  • Favorite color: I wear a lot of of neutrals - black, white, tan.
  • Gold or silver: Silver.
  • Height: Only 5' 3".
  • Instruments that you can play: I used to play the violin, but that was many moons ago.
  • Job title: D*esktop Publishing Specialist.
  • Kids: None, but I've got the fever...however, I'm nowhere near ready for that responsibility, and I'd like to have a couple years of marriage under my belt as well.
  • Live: Sunny California.
  • Mom’s name: Barbara.
  • Nicknames: Ang, Booger (don't ask - this was given to me by my brothers), Ah Gee Ya (baby in Korean - my Dad calls me this).
  • Overnight hospital stays: None.
  • Pet peeve: I have so many, but they all stem from my lack of patience. I guess talking on your cell while driving (totally illegal here), switching lanes without using a blinker, and store salespeople that won't leave you alone and make you feel uncomfortable when you don't buy anything.
  • Quote from a movie: "Ted Nugent called...he wants his shirt back." Ocean's Eleven.
  • Righty or lefty: Righty.
  • Sibling: Three older brothers (read more about them here).
  • Time you wake up: On a weekday - 8:30; on a weekend - usually around 9:30 or 10.
  • Underwear: Is this asking if I wear underwear? Because I do.
  • Vegetables you dislike: Bell peppers!
  • What makes you run late: I think being late is in my blood. It's a running joke with all of my friends, I'm always the last to arrive. And you couldn't pay me to get to work on time (which is ironic because they are paying me, and I'm still not on time).
  • X-rays: I had one when I sprained my finger while playing badminton in middle school and another when I was in a car accident my senior year of college.
  • Yummy food you make: C and I have become experts at making homemade pizzas. But as long as a recipe is good, my food turns out good. It's when I'm cooking on a whim that my food turns out less than spectacular.
  • Zoo favorite animal: I love the pandas!

  • Let me know if you do this so I can check out your answers!

    I always love reading these. No matter how much I know about my blog friends, there is always more to learn. I completely agree that being stalked in the store by annoying sales associates is high on my list of pet peeves. That is such a cute pic of you with the pandas!

    Congrats to your bf on the birth of her baby boy!
