Pamela {Sequins and Sea Breezes} said...

Love getting to know more about you! We have the same food hates that's for sure! And I live in FL but I'm always complaining about being cold... I literally have a heater under my desk at work that gets used all year round!

Jessica said...

I don't eat anything with curry in it either - so, as you could guess, I am not the biggest fan of Indian food! And I could watch Despicable Me every day:) Loved finding out a little more about you today! Such a fun post!

SuperLux said...

Hello, fellow Potter fan! :)

Oh you're a swim/soccer coach, that's impressive! I'm not sporty and I have high respect for athletes. Though this year, I'm planning to take swimming lessons as advised by my ortho for my back.

Nice to meet you. This post made me feel like I know you well. :)

Katie Elizabeth said...

The beach, sunshine, warmer temps -- yes to it ALL! At least January is almost behind us :) Always fun to learn a little more about you!

Julia said...

That's so cool that you studied abroad in Spain! I bet you have some amazing pictures from that! Love these posts, I always learn something new! :)

Meg Taylor said...

Love this post!! I love that you've been to South Korea, I would love to visit! And I am so with you on the anchovies and anything with curry!

Kristen said...

WHAT?! You don't eat curry?? WHHHHYYY???
anchovies are gross though, olives too.
I used to watch Castle but I stopped quite awhile ago - maybe I should start up again!

The Girl who Loved to Write said...

We are twins on what we don't eat!

Emily said...

You've lived in some fun places!!

Lindsay @ Broke and Bougie said...

This is fun! Girl I need to tag along on your vacations!!

Brittany @ Perpetually Daydreaming said...

I definitely still say Hollaaa too. :) haha. I get called Spears sometimes because my name is Brittany. Let me tell you how much I love being associated with her... How cool that you lived abroad in Spain! My hubs did too for a summer in college.

Rebecca Jo said...

I'm going to have to steal the saying, "Not my circus - not my monkeys" :) haha

Katie @ The Macarthurs Lately said...

Ya know.. come to think of it.. I've never see Up.

Meg ~ Chasing Pink Fireflies said...

This is so fun! You would definitely hate what I'm having for dinner - a curry rice salad with a number of ingredients but olives being one of them!

Stephanie @ Life, Unexpectedly said...

Chips and home-made guac are awesome, as are all things mushroom! Need to go make a shopping list now :-)

Courtney B said...

I'm totally stealing this and doing it for tomorrow's post!
I could live off of chips and guac. And jerky... but that has nothing to do with your post, ha!
I always say "holla!" no wonder we are friends ;) ha ha!
We gotta meet up in Vegas this year... or better yet. Are you going to AZ?! :)

Jess said...

I love this idea! It was so fun to read and get to know you better. :) You crack me up!

Gentel McKenney said...

Haha love the "not my circus, not my monkeys" saying!!
