Happy Wednesday Friends! Is the holiday crazy getting the best of you yet? I thought I had it together, but then I forgot to actually put my recipe at the bottom of my post yesterday. It's up now for those of you who have been dying to know what is in my Dark Chocolate Greek Yogurt Dip. Jeesh! I'm crumbling like a Christmas cookie! (Bonus points if you knew which Christmas special that line is from. 🙂
Well, I am knee deep in wrapping paper, shopping and cookie making. I’m actually anxious for next week because at that point whatever is done will be done and I’ll have to forget about the rest of it. Anyone else agree?
Tis the season!
Before I forget (Since I seem to be in that kind of mood lately!,) today is the last day to enter the Epic Running Giveaway! There is still time to enter and you can always go back and tweet more for additional entries.
On a completely different note, I got tagged in my first blog survey the other day from Nicole at FitFulFocus. This one has been going around the web for a while now, and I know I'm a little late to the game, but I could not resist my chance to play along. So here are my answers to the Mustache Questions.
4 names people call me other than my real name:
J-Dawg (From the hubs… he thinks I’m cool… Don’t tell him the truth)
4 jobs I’ve had: (Only 4? I’ve had a TON of jobs! I started working at 15)
JCPenney Teen Board
Character and Dancer in Parades at Walt Disney World (You probably didn’t think I looked like Pluto… did you?)
Video Tape Editor at Lockheed Martin
All the TV jobs ending with Morning Meteorologist at WLOS
4 movies I’ve watched more than once:
Gone with the Wind
4 books I’d recommend:
Gone with the Wind <--- My favorite of all time. My dog is named Rhett, after all. That's him saying "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn."
Gone Girl (I just read this one!)
The Sweetness of Forgetting <--- Written by my college apartment roommate Kristin Harmel. It is such a beautiful story!
4 places I’ve lived:
Gainesville, FL (Go Gators!)
4 places I’ve been: ( ONLY 4??!! You guys know how much I love to travel…)
Italy (Rome, Tuscany, Florence, Cinque Terre & Venice)

Costa Rica (Manuel Antonio & Arenal Volcano Area)
Hawaii (Maui, Oahu, The Big Island & Kauai)
4 things I don’t eat:
ALL things Meat (I DO eat fish and seafood)
Other than those two, I’m not picky at all. But not eating meat counts as a bunch…
4 of my favorite foods:
Good Stinky Cheese <--- It’s my vice. I dream about this cheese shop in Paris…
Ice Cream <--- second vice
4 TV shows that I watch:
Dancing with the Stars
The Voice (I just started watching this year!)
4 things I’m looking forward to this year (the year is almost over, but in the next few weeks…):
Enjoying Christmas Eve with my God-daughter
Going to see my Brother and Erica in Charlotte for dinner
Learning more about March of Dimes <---- More on that soon….
Doing something fun for New Year’s. I’m not sure what yet, but something fun.
4 things I’m always saying:
“RHETT!!!! REINAAA!!!! NO!!!!” <---- Those two dogs tag team and get in trouble. All. The Time.
“I’m hungry.” <---- Don’t worry I am always eating and I eat enough food, but my appetite is nuts.
“Where’s my phone.”
Want to go for a walk? <---- I love going on walks for some reason.

Buck up girl. Olives are the best, especially the black ones. I have to agree that travel is better, though. You come my that travel fetish honestly.

I love your dog Rhett! I love the voice! Never traveled much, but my favorite so far was to Memphis to Graceland! I am an Elvis freak!!!! I hope to get to Hawaii someday!!
Nicole @ Fitful Focus says
So fun! I love Costa Rica, too! 🙂
My mom was reading Gone With the Wind when she was teenager and she had to hide it from her mother, so her mother wouldn't find out she was reading it.Her mother thought it wasn't a good book for a young girl to read.. Mom was born in 1925 and the book came out in 1939..
Melissa @ Freeing Imperfections says
I love this survey! The holiday madness has definitely gotten to me. I am not usually this cranky around this time of year - I blame preggo hormones!
Susie @ SuzLyfe says
I want to go on a walk with you! We would have so much fun. Maybe even find some guys to watch playing shirtless beach volleyball.... just sayin.
Stacie @ SimplySouthernStacie says
I have never actually read Gone with the Wind. I need to put that on my list! I've only seen the movie once too. I know, I'm a disgrace to all Southern girls.
Renee @ Bendiful Blog says
I always love these kind of posts you learn so much about people! Fun Fun Julie!
Dan Steadman says
4 nicknames (other than the overused Dan the Man):
D-boo (from my younger boys since I call them C-boo and J-boo)
Deborah @ Confessions of a Mother Runner says
Top gun-yes! I also really dislike olives oddly. Hawaii one of my favorite places too.
It's the only thing I'm really picky about other than meat!
What you think about Craig winning last night? As much as I liked all them, I was a fan of Chris Jamion.
I actually didn't like Chris at first, but he grew on me during the trips home. I like that he was from Pittsburgh :0
I really liked Craig all along and I was glad he won. I'm a pretty big country music fan and I LOVED his Johnny Cash and the Old Rugged Cross.
Heather @Fit n Cookies says
I used to watch Revenge and then I quit. Is it still worth it?
It has gotten good again. I might have given it up too, but it is one show the Hubs and I actually both like to watch.
This is such a fun post! You had me at Turks and Caicos. I want to go back right this minute....oooohhh, wow. 😉
The blue water.... sigh....

That was a nice personal sharing type of blog.
I enjoyed it. Your love for traveling really showed.
