Four Things Survey

Answering “About Me” surveys are always fun.  When I see them floating around the Internet, it reminds me of junior high days when I first started using e-mail and sending around surveys was the “thing” to do.  So you can imagine how excited I was when I was tagged by Kimberley, Mindy, and Lauren to complete the “Four Things” survey.  My apologies to these ladies for how long it has taken me to respond.  I promise I never forgot, just had vacation and then my end of 2014 posts that I wanted to write last week.

Four Names That People Call Me, Other Than My Real Name:

1.  Pumpkin (my dad’s childhood nickname for me)
2.  Honey (reserved only for Preston)
3.  Sweetie (again, reserved only for Preston)
4.  KL (“L” is the first letter of my maiden name)

  1. The way the weather has been lately I couldn’t agree more with you. I’d rather be any place warm. This wkend we will be heading back down to Disney marathon wkend and couldn’t be more excited. So not a fan of seafood? Crab is one of my favorites.

    As I get ready to travel to Boston tomorrow, I will confess that I would much rather be traveling south. It’s going to be so cold and I’m not looking forward to running 12 miles Saturday morning with a high of 26 degrees!

  3. Sue @ This Mama Runs For Cupcakes says:

    I’m with you, I hate mushrooms and oysters too. I love reading these 🙂

  4. Love it! Thanks for playing along!!! And I wish we lived closer…we could be sushi buddies! Most of my friends don’t like sushi so I’m always on the hunt for someone to eat sushi with lol!

  5. Chaitali says:

    Thanks for the tag 🙂 I’m going to have to think about these. It sounds like you’ve got a great year ahead of you!

  6. Lesley says:

    I’d love to be going to Disney this weekend. I don’t have to run a race, but being some place warmer would be nice. Dallas is far enough north in Texas that it can get pretty cold here.

  7. Jennifer says:

    Fun! Ahhh newspaper carrier 🙂 I love all the pictures that accompanied this post – so fun that you will get to travel to Seattle this year.

  8. Kelly says:

    Ha! I was a newspaper carrier too! I took over my brother’s route and for all the years that I had it, one of my houses still wrote “Paper Boy” on all of their payment envelopes.
