Name Your Favorite

And I'm back with another round of Survey Sunday. Once again, I apologize for skipping over last week's, but the beautiful weather kept me away from my computer. And I don't necessarily think that's a bad thing.

But, let's get back on schedule, shall we? This survey asks me to 
Name Your Favorite…

Person – Because today is Mother’s Day, I’m going to have to go with my mom on this one. And because I’ve already given her a lengthy post highlighting only some of her incredible qualities, and I know she doesn’t want another one, I’ll just say that I’m more than thankful for all that she has done, does do, and will continue to do for me. I surely could not have made it through this first year of working without her going above and beyond to help me get it all done. And keep my sanity. Because that last one was questionable.

Color – On Wednesdays we wear pink.

Food – This question always gets me. But I think I’m going to have to go with dark chocolate. Can woman subsist on dark chocolate alone?

Smell – I love the smell of summer nights. I love the smell of Anthro’s Volcano candle. I love the smell of homemade chocolate chip cookies baking in the oven, and I could go on and on and on.

Book  This question is another toughy. Redeeeming Love, Harry Potter, East of Eden, Love Does – I could go on for days and days. If you ever need a book recommendation, you know where to find me.

Movie Remember the Titans is one of my all-time favorites, as is The Breakfast Club. Boyhood is a more recent fav, and I absolutely recommend you give it a watch.

Time of day – Morning. I am far more productive in the morning than I am at any other time of day. I’ve mentioned before that I shut down right around 3:00pm, which is why I have to get to work at 6:30am so that I can get some work done.

Day of the week – Friday. Call me crazy, but I enjoy going to work. I love getting to see my students and my co-workers, and I also love that everyone’s spirits are a little higher due to the upcoming weekend. Because who doesn’t need a break by the time Friday rolls around?

Thing to do when bored – Go for a bike ride, read, or bake.

Drink – Water will always be my number one. But I’m not one to turn down a mimosa or a glass of white wine.

TV show – Lately I have caught a few episodes of Friday Night Lights, and it reminded me why I binge-watched that show in the first place. Coach and Tami Taylor forever!

Fruit – Cuties. They’re cute (obviously), delicious, nutritious, and portable. What’s not to like?

Vegetable – I never thought I would say this, but I really love Brussels sprouts.

Store Anthropologie. Yesterday everything in the store was 20% off (shout out to moms for making this one possible), and you know I took advantage of it.

Clothed in Anthropologie, and she is poor in the days to come
Workout – Running. Though my runs have been hot and humid lately. Here we go!

Quote  – I love love love a good quote. In fact, I have been cutting out quotes that I plan on hanging up in my (fingers crossed) classroom for next year. Because I don’t have a favorite, I’ll just give you the last one I pinned.

Boy’s name  – Ross or Ryan.

Girl’s name – Reagan or Rylie. You know this English teacher is all about that alliteration.

Meal of the day – I love breaking the fast. And the possibilities are endless.

Season – Spring or summer, but I also love fall. And I don’t dislike winter, but I really dislike layers.

Dessert – Frozen yogurt, of course!

Lifehack – What a fun question! I actually have an entire book of LifeHacks, so this is a tough question for me. As someone who loves to bake, and who is surprisingly horrible at cutting things neatly, it was nice to learn that (unscented) dental floss will cut soft solids perfectly.

And on that note, I'm out. Be sure to give a mom-like figure a call today, as they are truly the real MVPs.
