Remember back in grade school when it was the day before a holiday break and it was basically a free day? We would watch movies and do fun things for the whole day because the teachers knew there was no way the kids would have an attention span to learn anything new.
That’s what I feel like today is.
It’s the day before Thanksgiving. Most people (in the U.S. at least) are traveling, hanging out with family or prepping for the big day tomorrow. The busy season has arrived.
I bookmarked this Fill in the Blanks Survey from Julie’s blog earlier this month knowing that it would be perfect for the day before Thanksgiving.
So if you took some time out of your busy holiday schedule to read this post, I thought I should at least make it light and fun. What better way than with a survey? If you are a long time reader, you know I love these types of things. It’s been forever since I’ve done one. It’s long overdue. I always love it when you guys participate in surveys, too. Feel free to pick and choose or answer all of the fun prompts in the comments.
- I would go skydiving once.
I’ve been afraid of heights for my whole life but I have this vision of skydiving at some point in my life. I have no idea why it appeals to me. Because why would jumping out of a perfectly safe and sound airplane sound like a good idea? I had a patient last year who skydived at least a few times a month, had broke more bones than the average person but talked about it so intensely that he almost had me signed up. Almost.
I could have probably done my first jump out of the plane I took to and from my parents house last month.
- The weirdest thing I ever ate was squirrel.
I grew up in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan where hunting is the norm. I had a grade school classmate that took it a step further. His family regularly hunted squirrel. We had a class potluck and he brought in squirrel stew but wouldn’t tell anyone that it was in fact squirrel stew till every tried it. I’m kind of ashamed to say it didn’t taste all that bad. Have I had squirrel since? Hell no.
- The movie of my life would star Tina Fey.
My brother Pete swears I look like Tina Fey when I wear my glasses. I think it’s only because we have dark hair and wear a similar pair of glasses at one time. Although I would be thrilled if she played me in my life story because it would be hilarious. BTW – I could only find one pic of me with my glasses on. It was from a middle of the night feeding when my kids were 3 days old. You’re welcome for not sharing it.
- My go-to food indulgence is Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
Peanut butter and chocolate. Need I say more? When that’s not available, a spoonful of PB and chocolate chips is the next best thing.
- The last live concert I saw was John Mayer.
And it was pre-kids. Lame. If I’m being truly honest, the last live concert that I attended was some kiddie concert from the summer but that would make me sound even more lame so let’s pretend I didn’t just write that. It’s John Mayer.
- My favorite jeans are Kut from the Kloth.
I have 4 pairs of Kut from the Kloth jeans, all from StitchFix orders throughout the past couple of years. They are hands down my favorite. The fit is the best.
- My can’t-live-without beauty product is Magnesium Lotion from Life Flo.
I’m so not into tons of beauty products but I’ve been loving this Magnesium Lotion for the past 4 months. I had been hearing tons of info about how low magnesium can result in so many ailments, one of which is tendonitis. Rather than taking a pill, a friend recommended using a lotion and recommended this brand. I can’t say that I feel any different from using it but *knock on wood* my foot has been feeling so much better the last couple of months. It’s got a nice scent and makes my skin soft and smooth so at least that’s a bonus!
Happy Thanksgiving friends! I am so thankful for each and every single one of you.
