Friend Makin’ Mondays: ABC’s

It’s Monday again which means it’s time for FMM! This week, the topic is going to be fun and a bit challenging so grab a drink and get ready to share the details of your life.  By the end, we should know so much about each other that we can be betsties for life. 😉

If you’ve taken part in FMM then you know the rules. If you’re new, please take a moment to answer this week’s question on your own blog then add your link in the comments section here at: so we can all see your FMM questions and answers. Please invite your blog readers to add their links here too so everyone has to opportunity to be seen.  The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to post your own FMM post and comment on a couple of other posts. Now it’s time for this week’s topic!

FMM: ABC’s of Me
Here’s how it works…you’ll choose topics about yourself, your likes, dislikes, etc.  according to each letter in the alphabet, and share a little with us. Oh shhh…you know you love it. 😉
A) Atlantis is one of my favorite vacation destinations. I love the Bahamas! I like Aruba too which also starts with an A. 
B) It’s been a while since I’ve really liked a guy…I’ve been boy crazy since first grade when I had my first crush on a kid in 7th grade.  He didn’t care that I was alive (apart from the fact that I could spell mathematics and he couldn’t) though it’s pretty clear that I’ve always liked them older.  I prefer them to be smart now too. 😉 
C) I need to buy a car  because moving to Los Angeles means driving from point A to point B.  I was suprised to learn that L.A. has a subway system though it’s not at all like NYC.  It’s a good start though. 
D) Dad and I talk on the phone almost daily. 
E) Exercise is an important part of my life. Taking a few days off sucks.  Sometimes it’s necessary, but it makes me very lazy.  
F) College football and baseball are my favorite sports to watch on TV.  Do not bother me on Saturdays during football season unless it’s to offer me a hoagie or some sushi. 
G) I like golf.  I suck at it, but I like it.  And I need new golf clubs – preferably the light blue Mizuno clubs that I’ve adored for a few years. 
H) I’m happiest when the sun is shining and I’m around people I love. 
I) I enjoy having good conversations, playing Scrabble and tweeting on my iPhone. 
J) I still do modified jumping jacks though I learned that I can do regular ones recently..I can jump rope too! #NSV
K) Knitting is one of my favorite hobbies. 
L) Los Angeles. Enough said.
M) My mom drives me crazy sometimes, but she loves me like crazy all the time.  I love her too. =) 
N) I love my niece more than I knew I could love a human.  And I already knew I had the capacity to love a lot…
O) I am 30 years old, and soon…I’ll be 31 years old…
P) Pearl Jam is my favorite band of all time. I’ve seen them in concert many, many times, and I’ve always been 11th row or closer.  Also, I made panzanella for the first time this weekend.  I’ll blog about it soon. =)
Q) One of my favorite quotes is…”To love someone is nothing.  To be loved by someone is something, but to be loved by the one you love is everything.” 
R) Rice Kripsy Treats are my weakness…well, one of them. 😉 
S)  I applied to a couple of schools in California recently, and I received my first acceptance letter over the weekend.  I’m going back to school to study something completely different than I ever would have imagined.
T) I love twitter.  I have met some pretty incredible people that I may not have met otherwise. 
U) I never seem to have an umbrella with me when it starts to rain.  I came out of the Subway on the Upper West Side recently when the sky opened up so I ran into a store to purchase an umbrella.  I found one by Joseph Abboud on sale and thought it would be sufficient.  I used it to walk about 3 blocks before a wind gust broke it while simultaneously getting splashed by a food truck.  Sometimes I have an umbrella, and it still doesn’t matter.
V) Veal is disgusting.  I will not eat baby cow.  I will not eat baby cow.
W) White Collar is my favorite TV show.  I love Neal Cafferey.  Why does it seem like I talk about this every Monday? 🙂 
X) marks the spot, and that reminds me of a Nickelback song that I like to run to when I’m at the track.
Y) I am a Yankees fan to the core.  No matter where I live, I’ll always be a Yankees fan…Derek Jeter will always be my hero, and New York, New York will always make me think of pie in the face.
Z) Zero PointsPlus foods are my absolute favorite.  I love Weight Watchers, and the fact that fruits – even bananas – are zero points is completely awesome. 
Now it’s your turn! Don’t forget to come back and link up! Happy Monday, and happy Memorial Day!

    oh, honey–be very very careful before moving to LA. i've lived here almost all my life & if there's one thing i've learned it's that people will harass you about yr weight here WAY WAY A GOOGOLPLEX more than any place else–it's a *movie* industry town. appearance is EVERYthing & EVERYwhere. & so help me–were to tell you i generally weighed around 140 & was pestered NO END, you will see what i mean. here they take anyone over size 2/4 {i am not kidding} pretty much as a personal affront. & the other thing w/ you is that yr pretty, which, here, believe it or not, makes it WORSE. it's by no means all richard simmons. i just hope you dont have it rough. i wanted to note this since i found yr blog, but i am so overworked i forgot, i am only noting it now so you might have some idea.
