Well this made me feel 13 again!

This is kind of a wimpy post, but I am coming to you live from Flint, Michigan, today, where it is freakin' cold, and I can't stop shivering long enough to type a real post! Thank the stars above for a Starbucks close to the hotel.


I've seen this "Four Things" survey floating around the blog world in the last few weeks, so thought I'd give it a shot. Filling this out REALLY made me think of email surveys that went around back when I had my very first email account (with Juno. What the what?!) in like 6th grade. Those were fun. Right?? Let's do this.


Four names that people call me, other than my real name: 
  • Lindz 
  • L-Dubs 
  • Gypsy (that one's from my sister... Don't ask!)
  • My last name (or a version of it)

Four jobs I have had: 
  • Substitute teacher (In college, on breaks)
  • Student athlete tutor (In college - very fun job!)
  • American Eagle (I lasted approximately 6 months in retail - not cut out for that life!)
  • Gold's Gym Kidz Club (Glorified babysitter, with a free gym membership)

Four movies I’ve watched more than once: 
  • Love, Actually (I can quote the whole thing)
  • Elf (Again... I can quote the whole thing)
  • Finding Nemo (I am five years old at heart)
  • O Brother, Where Art Thou? (One of C's favorites that he has subsequently turned into one of mine)

Four books I’d recommend: 

Four places I have lived: 
  • Blacksburg, VA
  • Woodbridge, VA
  • Frankfurt, Germany 
  • Littleton, CO

Four places I have been: JUST THIS WEEK!
  • Flint, MI
  • Saginaw, MI
  • Kalamazoo, MI
  • Detroit, MI

Four places I’d rather be right now: 
  • Home (seriously - get me there!)
  • OBX 
  • Jekyll Island, Georgia (where we went for our honeymoon - I'd love to go back!) 
  • Germany (there is something magical about Germany around Christmastime!)

Four things I don’t eat: 
  • Applesauce (too mushy / weird texture)
  • Eggplant (too mushy / weird texture)
  • Clam chowder (.....too mushy / weird texture)
  • Curry (really just don't like the flavor)

Four of my favorite foods: 
  • Enchiladas verde (my go-to order at any Mexican restaurant)
  • Chipotle chicken salad (I'm getting hungry)
  • Schnitzel (all-time favorite! With all the delicious trimmings, too)
  • SweetFrog (duh!)

Four TV shows that I watch: 
  • Bones 
  • Elementary 
  • Big Bang 
  • Cold Case 

Four things I am looking forward to this year: 
  • A couple of house projects that we are tossing around
  • Christmas!
  • NYE in Nashville 
  • The birth of my first niece in April

Four things I’m always saying:
  • "I'm hungry"
  • "I'm tired"
  • "I need to pee" (constantly. hashtag baby bladder)
  • "Can we stop at Wawa?" (I love Wawa. Seriously.)

Want to play along?? Feel free to copy and paste :) Hope you are having a great week!

I've been wanting to reread the Ya Ya Sisterhood. It's been a while! And I think everyone should work in retail or in the restaurant business at least once in their life!

There is nothing better in the world than Germany at Christmas time!!!! I would hop on a plane tomorrow to go. Definitely share your love of schnitzel too! Have you ever been to Vienna? Figlmuller has the best schnitzel I've ever had...now I'm hungry, haha.

This was fun to read :) I've heard of Jekyll Island but have never been.
