Tag Questions Answered

8 Jan

Yesterday when I check my blog, I saw I was tagged by Shanna from Shanna like Banana to answer a few questions and then to pass new questions along to a few of my blogger friends!  Fun, right?  So here are my responses below!

How many pairs of shoes do you own?  Is there an upper limit that is too many?

Guessing I own about 40 pairs of shoes.  I don’t think a girl can EVER have too many pairs of shoes! 

How have you influenced your significant other’s eating habits?

I introduced my husband to many different things, including eating breakfast, flaxseeds, chia seeds, pitas, hummus and eating healthier all together.  I am still working on getting him to eat tofu!  It’s a work in progress.  : )

Have you ever had a “fat kid moment”?  What did you inhale eat?

Of course!  Who hasn’t.  The last thing I really indulged in was an Italian feast in early December.  We went to a local restaurant and I had bread (it was white….gasp), salad (that was loaded with ranch dressing when it came to out table…another gasp) and for my main meal I had eggplant parmesan (cheesy…..and lets hear a third gasp).  Did I mention I had 2 1/2 glasses of wine?

Knowing in advanced we were going out to eat at this particular restaurant, I planned ahead and ate a diet of fruit, vegetables and lean protein before and after that meal so I wouldn’t feel guilty.

What is your favorite chain restaurant?

My favorite chain restaurant would be Buca di Beppo.  I love their thin pizza and salads!

Italian is more fun at Buca make a reservation now!

Who was/is the biggest influence in your cooking and/or baking?

I would have to say my Mom and Martha Stewart!  I have great memories of my Mom cooking a lot when I was little.  I love the way the house smells when she is in the kitchen!  Also, Martha!  I love she doesn’t spare even one small detail with her cooking!

Who is your celebrity crush?

Slash from Guns and Roses.  Weird I know.  I actually had a dream Wednesday night he and I were cooking Thanksgiving together.  He was making a green salad and topping it with roasted cherry tomatoes and he also made a delicious sweet potato stuffing that was out of this world. 

 What is one of the best compliments you’ve ever received?

Hmm…….Probably when the Husband told me I looked so beautiful that I made him cry.  : )

Have you ever tried Bikram?  If not, would you?

I first started Bikram back in 2003 during my sophomore year of college at the University of Kansas.  I absolutely LOVE IT!  Where we live now in AZ, we don’t have a Bikram studio so I do Barkan hot yoga at home up to three times a week. 

What 3 things are you most thankful for?

I’m most thankful for my family, including our new puppy Quincy, my health and having job security right now!

What European city would you most like to live in?  Why?

Paris.  Besides being French, I love the fashion, culture, old buildings and all the art the city has to offer!
