5 Questions- Part II

A few weeks ago I decided to start making posts in which I answer 5 random questions, and I felt like making another one. Here’s the first 5 Questions post if you didn’t see it already.

1. What is the best compliment you have received? 

Jenna, my best friend and maid of honor, gave the most wonderful toast at our wedding. In her speech she said that she was thankful to have me as a friend because I make life an adventure. I can’t think of a much better compliment than that, especially from someone I love and admire as much as Jenna.

2. What do you order or not order at a restaurant?

If I can make it at home, I generally don’t order it. Since I meal plan and cook the majority of the time, going out to eat is my chance to treat myself with something I can’t or don’t normally cook. I like to try whatever is considered to be the “house special.” I also love getting to know different cultures through food, so I try to select dishes that are more authentic and traditional if possible.

3. Do you have any birthmarks or tattoos? 

No tattoos for me. I have 2 birthmarks. I have a small one on my wrist and a larger one on my knee. The one on my knee looks like Scooby-Doo’s head.


Imagine them facing the same direction. Weird, right?

4. If you had to be trapped in a TV show for a month, which would you choose? 

Parenthood for sure. I love that show! The Braverman’s are kind of crazy but heartfelt and sincere. I only have one sibling and one cousin, so the idea of having a big, boisterous family with people my age is appealing to me (at least for a month anyway). It also doesn’t hurt that they live in Berkeley, California.

P.S. Parenthood is streaming on Netflix if you haven’t seen it yet. Watch it!

5. What is your favorite commercial? 

Because the world is awesome.

Please feel free to post one of your own answers to the questions!


Anything For Love {Fun Friday}

First of all, I apologize for posting late this week. Our wedding pictures finally came in the mail yesterday, so I spent the afternoon working on an online gallery for them instead of finishing my fun Friday post. The pictures are fantastic! We had a blast re-living our wedding day when we looked at them. I will be working on a few wedding recap posts to share on BNP soon. Anyway, on to some videos, pictures, and stories that made me laugh or smile this week!

First up this week is a video about what it’s like to be out of shape at the gym (aka my experience right now).

I’m also motivated by tacos, so I can relate. 🙂 Next up is a sweet video that I saw about what one woman’s friends did to show their support while she undergoes cancer treatment.


What an extraordinary group of women! If you are looking for more sources of inspiration, I also found a link to the 22 best TED talks for fitness, health, and happiness inspiration. I’m a fan of TED talks, and I’ve seen a handful of the ones on that list. If you only have time to watch one, I recommend 16. Brené Brown: The Power of Vulnerability. Brené Brown is a social work researcher and a wonderful speaker. Her message is one that everyone needs to hear over and over.

Finally, I’ll end with two videos that made me laugh. The first is an old Sprite commercial.

I always think about how weird it would be if mascots actually talked to you. I love the dog’s reaction. 🙂 That commercial somehow led me to these Japanese McDonald’s commercials, which are insanely creepy but also funny.

What in the world?? Commercials from other countries are always entertaining.

Have a great weekend and don’t forget to smile and laugh!
