Getting to Know Andrea A Bit Better

The other day, I was tagged with the Butterfly Award by Kristen, Swanky Dietitian. Thanks, Kristen! As her blog title says, Kristen is a dietitian. She lives in Las Vegas, and I very much enjoy following along her eating, exercising, and having fun adventures. On to the award and the questions/prompts I’m supposed to answer.

Butterfly Award
Name your favorite color: I love pink. But I’m realizing that I’m getting a bit too old to wear a lot of it, so I’m having fun accessorizing with it and making my blog and Twitter page pink! Smile

Name your favorite song: That’s tough. I love Queen, and “We are the champions” is one of my favorites.

Name your favorite dessert: Crème brulee. I almost always order it when it’s on the menu (and I want dessert)!

What wizzes you off? Insincerity.

When you’re upset you…. go for a walk or work out, and then talk about whatever upsets me with hubby until his ears fall off…

Black or white? I love both, but black is a bit more versatile I think.

Your biggest fear: Not slowing down enough to truly enjoy the gift of life every day.

Best feature: My smile (and I realize I don’t smile enough!).

Everyday attitude: Don’t sweat the small stuff. And don’t worry about the “big stuff” too much either. Ask yourself: Will this matter 5 years from now?

What is perfection? There is no such thing. We can only try to do our best. But don’t worry too much about getting it “perfect.”

Guilty pleasure: Wine and beer.

That was fun! Thanks for tagging me, Kristen!  I’m going to tag all my readers with this award! Answer as many as you’d like in the comments!

In other news:

If you missed the $100 American Express gift card giveaway post, there is still plenty of time to enter (until 9/30) or to get additional entries. You get one entry for posting your favorite 6 ingredient meal. There are up to four additional entries possible, one for each of the following: liking my Facebook page, following me on Twitter, tweeting about the giveaway, or blogging about it. Make sure to leave me a comment for each entry you do!

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you know that I used to post our weekly meals and my workouts every Monday. Sometimes that is a bit difficult to do, so I started my Facebook page, and I have been posting our meals and my workouts there on Sundays. It’s a lot easier. I plan to get back to posting a menu on this blog, but in the meantime, you know were to find our weekly meals and my workouts in case you are interested.

Finally, I recently became a San Jose Restaurant News Examiner. I am enjoying researching and writing about the restaurant scene in Silicon Valley. The link takes you to my bio page with links to the articles I have written so far. Check it out if you are interested.

It’s your turn to answer any or all of the above prompts and questions! Looking forward to getting to know you all a bit better!

Be well,
