A is for age: Twenty-three, but my birthday is this month!
B is for breakfast today: Oatmeal from Trader Joe's. I hated oatmeal most of my life. When I turned 21, I LOVED it. I guess it's true what they say about your taste buds--whatever it is they actually say.
C is for currently craving: I want one of those Hershey's Cookies and Cream bars. This is a pretty frequent craving and, unfortunately (fortunately?), a fairly frequent indulgence.
D is for dinner tonight: I was going to pick up a salad from Chipotle, but my husband's sick. So I may change plans!
E is for favorite type of exercise: I just tried body pump for the first time last night, and I LOVED IT. I like Pilates a lot too. And cycling.
F is for an irrational fear: Elevators. I hate hate hate elevators. I'll ride them, sure, but the entire time I'm afraid it's going to get stuck, the lights are going to go out, and then--of course because it's the only logical next step--I will die.

G is for gross food: The only foods I really don't like (not because I've tried them--I assure you I have not) involve bugs: chocolate-covered ants, grasshopper lollipops, fried grub (like the kind you find in Botswana...where I absolutely refused to eat one).
H is for hometown: Born in Elko, Nevada. Raised in Brentwood, Tenn.
I is for something important: Truth. I think it's more important to tell the truth than it is to be comfortable.
J is for current favorite jam: Two songs--"Gray or Blue" by Jaymay and "Comes and Goes" by Greg Laswell. Enjoy:
K is for kids: None. And probably not any for at least another four years. Or more. The thought of being a parent terrifies me--but I'd also like to be a grandparent someday. So I guess that means I need to be a parent at some point.
L is for current location: Nashville, Tenn.
M is for the most recent way you spent money: Buying cold medicine and orange juice for the sick husband I mentioned earlier.
N is for something you need: Patience and a little bit of grace for other people. Also, more kindness--that's the opposite of envy, right?
O is for occupation: Public relations assistant account executive/writer (I do this blog.)
P is for pet peeve: People who want to get ahead and will do whatever it takes to get there. Also, I dislike lists that leave out the Oxford comma. This can be rather frustrating since we use the AP Stylebook in PR.
Q is for a quote: “You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children.” Madeleine L'Engle
Also from her: "Maybe you have to know darkness before you can appreciate the light."
R is for random fact about you: I used to write for an online gaming website called gm3r.com. It went down a while ago, but it was a whole lot of fun.
S is for favorite healthy snack: Does hummus count?
T is for favorite treat: Frozen peanut butter pie.
U is for something that makes you unique: The only sleeping bag in my house is in the shape of a Tauntaun.

V is for favorite vegetable: Avocado. Or is that a fruit? If it's a fruit then I'll go with potatoes. Or I guess that's a root. Are roots vegetables? Fine, broccoli.
W is for today’s workout: I'm hoping for a spin class tonight!
X is for X-rays you’ve had: Teeth and spine. I have slight scoliosis.
Y is for yesterday’s highlight: Learning how to get more likes on Facebook.
Z is for your time zone: Central.
