Getting to Know You Survey

I was tagged in this on Facebook… but Facebook notes are for people who don’t have blogs, so I’m posting it here, with the help of NatalieDee graphics, of course.

5. If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be? – Key West, Fla.

6. What did you have for breakfast? A pear and a cup of coffee. *Braces for attack from the Healthy Breakfast Nazis*

8. What foods do you dislike?– All types of meat. Any fast food- seriously fast food restaurants scare me. Anything deep fried or fried at all. Anything greasy or buttery or oily or overly sweet, salty, greasy, or fattening.

Oh, and mushrooms.

    I didn’t know your favorite colors were MVNU colors. That’s awesome. 🙂

    Yeah, I failed the permit test a couple of times, but I actually passed the driver’s test on the first try, and I found this odd because I was really, really nervous.

    I’m not a fan of broccoli either. Ick.

    Yeah, my parents can’t understand why I don’t like mushrooms. They’re disgusting, and if you’re not careful, they’re poisonous! XD

  2. Don’t worry. I won’t attack you for your breakfast. 😉 I just had a banana and am saving my oats for later because I don’t want to workout on too full a stomach.

    And I would be so ready for the beach/honeymoon too in your shoes. Lastly – you will hate the recipe I’m posting today. Lots o’ mushrooms. I love them!

    so fun. and random. gonna have to steal this one too 🙂

    i wish i had a dislike for fried foods… technically i shouldn’t eat it b/c i’m allergic (to vegetable/soybean oil) but that doesn’t always stop me. so unhealthy, but sometimes my (bad) tastebuds take over.
