This month (well until my honeymoon :D), I will be participating in Blogme MAYbe. This wonderful idea is the brainchild of SaraMcClung and is a weekly blog format with an easy schedule to follow. For more information and join the fun (you can at any time!), simply click on the banner created by the super-duper-talented Tracey
On Tuesdays, the prompt is: May I tell you something about myself? Not too long ago, I came across an Alphabet Survey on the lovely Katy Upperman´s blog which she had found on Just Everyday Me…what a perfect way to start Blogme MAYbe (on Thursday, The Chemical Engineer aka my hubby will be back on my blog – and let me tell you – with very useful advice)
It´s all about me – From A to Z
A is for age: The BIG 3-0…turning 31 this year…I´m totally wise (Hubby, stop laughing!)
B is for breakfast today: Maple & Brown Sugar Oatmeal (with a sliced banana and chocolate chips), Coffee
C is for currently craving: The French Toasts my hubby made on Sunday
D is for dinner tonight: Cutlet with spaetzle and mushrooms…
E is for favorite type of exercise: I love swimming (and aqua gym) but I have not had the time to do it in a while so instead I’ll have to go for tennis (I also enjoy pilates, yoga and jogging).
F is for an irrational fear: BIG spiders. I have many fears if I’m honest and I’m working on them but let’s concentrate on spiders. While I used to have a tiny spider as a friend when I was small (I even had given it a name), I’m super duper scared of BIG hairy spiders.
G is for gross food: Not a fan of celery and of cold endive. Everything else is a go in my book.
H is for hometown: A small village an hour north from Paris.
I is for something important: My hubby, my entire family, for sure and my friends.
J is for current favorite jam: Raspberry
K is for kids: None. My husband is a big kid, does he count? 😀
L is for current location: My living room
M is for the most recent way you spent money: Books, quite a wonderful way to spend money!
N is for something you need: Internet, a hug from my hubby, a book, a laugh…I´d also love a massage!
O is for occupation: I sometimes pretend to be Super Woman…:D
P is for pet peeve: People sneezing and coughing in public transportation without covering their mouths. I’m sorry but not a big fan of your germs and people not letting their seats for old people or pregnant ladies. Inconsiderate.
Q is for a quote: So many, so many quotes…I am going to go with this one
R is for random fact about you: I slid across three lanes of I-95 S (you know the interstate going towards DC) sideways on my way to school because a truck hit my car. Not fun to see all those cars coming at me. Came out of it with a BIG scare.
S is for favorite healthy snack: A banana or an apple
T is for favorite treat: Coffee at my grandmother’s with the cookies I used to eat as a child. Otherwise, dark chocolate or my sister’s chocolate cake…However, when I want to treat myself, I go to Starbucks and buy a Caramel Macchiato with a Blueberry muffin.
U is for something that makes you unique: My smile? I also lived in 3 different countries, in 13 different apartments/houses and in 7 different cities…
V is for favorite vegetable: I love veggies! Green peas, green beans, carrots, potatoes, tomatoes…
W is for today’s workout: Will do some cardio on my elliptical while watching Friends later on today and might go for a walk with the hubby this afternoon.
X is for X-rays you’ve had: Teeth, arm (broken as a child in two places), lungs, head…
Y is for yesterday’s highlight: Cuddling on the couch with my hubby
Z is for your time zone: Central European Time
So tell me, are you participating in any blogfest this month?
What is your favorite treat? Have you started reading INSURGENT?
