Four movies I’ve watched more than once:

  1. You’ve Got Mail (<– One of my all-time favorites!!)
  2. Couples Retreat (<– Let’s be honest- I partly love it so much because it’s set in Bora Bora!)
  3. Just Friends (<– My girlfriends and I could collectively quote this whole movie.)
  4. 13 Going on 30 (<– Another classic from my middle school days!)

__________________________________________

Four books I’d recommend:

*It’s SOOOO hard to narrow this down to four.

  1. The Hating Game by Sally Thorne
  2. Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah (<– It’s a tearjerker, be warned!)
  3. The Guest Cottage by Nancy Thayer
  4. Born to Run by Christopher McDougall (<– Talk about some workout motivation!!)

Four things I prefer not to eat:

  1. Pop (<– I’ve never been a pop fan.)
  2. Lamb (<– It just tastes “off” to me.)
  3. Gummy Candy (<– Bleh. Give me all the chocolate.)
  4. Mayonnaise (<– I grew up eating butter on my sandwiches because I hated mayo so much. I’ve gotten better, but I still think it’s pretty gross.)

__________________________________________

Four of my favorite foods:

  1. Roasted sweet potatoes
  2. Chicken Curry
  3. Peanut Butter
  4. Grouper Fish (<– If it’s on the menu at a restaurant, I’m going to order it!)

Four TV shows I watch:

  1. My 600-lb. Life (<– Travis and I are too entertained by this show. Ironically, we’re usually eating dinner or snacking while we watch it.)
  2. Last Man Standing
  3. Little People Big World (<– I’m probably the only person out there who still watches this!)
  4. The Bachelorette (<– I used to think this was so dumb, but my friend Jessica got me hooked!)

__________________________________________

Four things I’m looking forward to this year:

  1. Float Trip with friends in August
  2. Tailgating season! (<– Ok, and just fall time in general!)
  3. Our 2-year Anniversary- November 14th

Bring on football season!

__________________________________________

Four things I’m always saying:

  1. “Voices off. Eyes up here.” (<– In my Mrs. Snyder teacher voice.)
  2. “Let me just finish this chapter.” (<– Always reading.)
  3. “Is it too early for wine?” (<– The answer is always no, go ahead! Ok…and usually I am the one answering this question for myself too. 😉 )
  4. Do you want to go to Marshalls? (<– That store is addicting!)
