I’m Back- Liebster + Weekly Goals Week 1

Hey blogland.. it’s been a long time. Sorry about that. As usual I promise to try to do better.. I have so many things to get done that I kind of just feel that I am failing at them all.

Sooo for 2014 I have decided to give up… SLEEP.

Just kidding, kind of.

I have a ton of stuff that I want to write about/document that has happened over the last couple months. It may be a strange holiday blast from the past around here for a bit, so feel free to skip over those posts. I know that I’m over the holidays, so I can imagine that you all are too. Buuut like I said, I want to document them!

Lauren from Another Mom Another Blog was kind enough to nominate me for a Liebster so I am going to jump back into blogging by answering her questions. Carolyn nominated me for a Leibster some months back, so if you’re curious about that you can check it out here. I am just going to answer Lauren’s questions because I am lazy like that. 🙂

1. What’s the meaning behind your blog name?

Well I started this blog to document wedding planning and my goal to run 1000 miles in 2012. I ran 500 mines in the last six months of 2011, so I thought it would be neat to run 1000 in 2012. Too bad I completely burnt myself out on running in 2011 though.. Also, I tend to get TOO nostalgic at times and live in the past more than I should. Hence “another mile, another memory”. Plus it’s a lyric from a Dierks Bentley song, and I just love him. 🙂

2. If you could be any animal, what would you be?

Oh man! That is such a great question. I think I would want to be something aquatic. I love the water.. a dolphin would be cool. They are super smart, intuitive and playful. Who wouldn’t want to be all those things?

3. What’s your biggest pet peeve?

I have a lot.. I think I am more easily annoyed than a lot of people. (Aren’t I so loveable?). I really hate bad drivers and when T picks at his nails with his teeth though. He handles money all day..EWW!

4. What’s your dream car?

Another great question!! I am such a Chevy/ GM girl. I LOVE my SRX, but I would also love the truck from this post as a nice weekend ride for up at the cabin ;-).

If I had to pick something besides a GM I would probably pick a VW Beetle- the body style before the current one- or an Audi sports car.

5. What do you enjoy the most about blogging?

The fact that it forces me to take a little time out for myself? haha no, I absolutely adore the fact that I have had the opportunity to meet some amazing women from all over North America.

6. What is your favorite breed of dog (or cat if you’re a cat person)?

I love both cats and dogs, and really most animals (not reptiles or bugs though!) but if I had to pick I would have to say Border Collie.What a surprise, right? I have wanted a border Collie since I was 12 years old and Lori is everything that I could dream of. She was housebroken at 6 weeks– you tell me that she isn’t a genius?!

I work in a pretty crappy part of town (for one of my jobs) and Lorelei has picked up an awesome new habit.. If someone she doesn’t like (usually guys) and they come within 10 feet of my desk she goes insane and lunges at them. It’s gotten to the point where instead of anchoring her leash to the chair I had to put a hook on my desk.

Lori is not only smart, but protective. I can’t say she works wonders to make customers feel welcome though..

7. Where do you get your news from?

The internet/ everyday life. It’s really bad, but I can’t stand to watch the news these days. It makes me way too sad.

8. What is something crazy you’ve always wanted to do but never have?

Ooh! Travel somewhere exotic without worrying. I am so neurotic about travel.

9. What was your favorite toy growing up?

Pretty much anything art related. (You would think that I would be able to draw something that actually resembles– ANYTHING). Barbie stuff was always cool too. Interesting how I would up minoring in Women’s Studies in University.. haha.

10. What recipe have you been dying to try but haven’t yet?

Alll the cupcake recipes I have pinned on Pinterest.. some day!

11. What are your goals for your blog?

Easy- be a more consistent blogger!

As far as goals go.. I am going to start back at counting from one for the new year. AND I’m not going to bother recapping my last goals, because it’s been waaay too long.

Fitnasty for Life
I’m going to keep it simple for my first week back:
1.) Drink at least 100 oz water daily
2.) Track EVERYTHING
3.) Get back to the gym at least 2 mornings this week.
4.) Become BFF’s with my day planner- this week is another and I don’t want to forget any appointments.

Lastly, WordPress just informed me that today marks my one year anniversary of starting this blog! Woohoo! I can’t say that I have kept this blog up like I wanted to, but I can say THANK YOU to all the amazing friends that I have made over the course of the last year. I may not update often, but I still enjoy following along on everyone else’s adventures 🙂

    • Thank you, Carolyn! Some day we will actually have the time to bake to our heart’s desire, right?? Thank you, I’m a couple days in and still on track!! Better than I’ve done in the past at least haha

  1. Yay thanks for answering all my questions! Being an aquatic animal would be so cool. I don’t spend nearly enough time around/ in water and I really wish I did! And yay for more Chevy people! American all the way, haha!

    • Of course, thanks for the nomination!! Water is the best (says the girl who lives in a desert)! Do you guys have any creeks nearby? My mom always talks about “going down to the creek”, when she lived in Brighton.
      Yay Chevy and American!! The American auto manufactures have REALLY stepped up their game over the past couple years, it was looking pretty scary there for a bit! haha
