And Sunday I went to a party for the Food Blog Forum in Asheville.

And today I’m looking forward to learning a lot of tips to improve the food portion of Running in a Skirt at the Food Blog Forum!  What a great couple of days.

For today’s post I thought I’d do an old school-like blog post.  Many of you may know me a little bit from the news, but I thought it would fun for us all to get to know each other even better.  I’ll go first and then in the comments section you pick 1-5 numbers and tell me about yourself.

This is inspired by Julie @ PeanutButterFingers and Tina @ CarrotsnCake.

25 Things You Don’t Know About Me

1. I’m happiest when… I am exploring someplace new.

2. …Especially if it… involves good food, good views and good company.  I have a severe case of wanderlust.

3. I’ve always wanted to… go to the Galapagos Islands.

4. My family and I… don’t see each other as often as I would like, but are still very close.

5. I was a terrible… modern dance student.  I excelled at ballet and tap, and even minored in dance in college.   I took ballet for the entire minor with the exception of one required modern class.  I really didn’t do well in it at all and I never warmed up to all the moves standing on your hands and on the floor.

6. My first job was… JC Penney Teen Board.  I did fashion shows in the mall.  My second job was a character and parade dancer at Disney.  I was most frequently Pluto.  I’ve always had off beat jobs.

7. I could probably eat ice cream or Mexican food everyday. Breakfast burrito for breakfast, Quesadilla for lunch, Enchiladas for dinner and ice cream for dessert. I’m not kidding.

Speaking of Enchiladas… I think it is time to make these roasted vegetable ones again…

8. I wish I could… sing.  I have the boots and heart of country music star, but am completely tone deaf.

9. I was born on the same day as… Demi Lovato, Amy Adams & Connie Chung.  Talk about good company!

10. My all-time favorite film is… Gone with the Wind AND Top Gun.  I do have a dachshund named Rhett AND see #15

11. I do a pretty mean… running man and roger rabbit.

12. I’m still mad… I didn’t visit Sarah in Paris in college when she was studying abroad.

13. I met my husband… at a friends party in Asheville.  Our mutual friends arranged for us to meet!  They could be professional match makers.

14. I always knew I wanted… a gaggle of dachshunds. But now I sort of feel like our
little family is at a two dogs limit.

15. I’m not afraid to… fly!  See below

16. I make the best… Vegetarian Chili (I desperately need to put better pictures in this post, but regardless it is one of my most popular food posts AND a family requested favorite.)

17. I have almost absolutely no… patience for people who treat animals poorly.

18. I always cry when… I think about something happening to Rhett and Reina.  They are both getting a little older (Rhett-13, Reina-9) and I really need them to have long, long lives.

19. I’m an Asheville girl to the core now, but I still have some flip flop, beach & heat loving Floridian in me.

20. I spent 2 years living in Macon, Georgia working at a Fox affiliate before moving to Asheville.

21. I wish my Mom could still help me make big decisions.   Although I sometimes look to the sky and ask her what she thinks.

22. At 5, I was deeply in love with ballet and strawberry shortcake.

23. I believe if people remembered that everyone is fighting some sort of battle, the world would be a better place.   Offering a little bit of grace can go a long way.

24. I can’t stand… big crowds.  I used to love them but as I’ve gotten older they make me crazy nervous.

25. Whenever Full House is on, I’ll watch it.

Your turn! 

Pick a couple numbers and tell me about you…
