10 Things You Probably Didn't Know About Me {A to Z Edition, Part 2}

Happy New Year's Eve my friends!!!!  Tomorrow is 2015 - craaaaazy!!

{{If you're looking for a great NYE workout look no further than this post from last has 5 awesome workouts including a NYE K.I.S.S. workout that you will love - promise!  I'm actually planning that as my workout today too!!}}

Oh....and have you seen my new blog button/logo?? What do you think?? It's about time this ish got somewhat professional! :)

So this post was suppooooosed to be published on Monday but this break has me all kinds of screwed up!! [Anyone else??]  

We've been doing a lot of fun family stuff - if you follow me on IG you've probably seen some of it!  We saw Santa, went to the zoo, went to a Panthers' hockey game, went on an airboat ride in the everglades, saw alligators, HELD alligators (not me! lol), went ice skating....and a handful of other things I'm forgetting right now!

I also ran 6 miles last weekend because I'm 75% sure I'm signing up for a half in February! (more on that later!)

So on to Part 2 of my #10Things A to Z series (check out Part 1 here)....

K: Kickboxing!
When we lived in North Miami Beach - pre-kids! - we belonged to a great, local, 1-location gym.  A little rugged but we loved it!  After work and on the weekends I was a free I usually took either a spinning class or a kickboxing class 4-6 times/week!  The kickboxing instructor was awesome! I even bought my own gloves and jump rope.  Really made me feel kick ass and it was an awesome full-body workout!

L: Legos
I may not be a civil engineer [I'm chemical ;)] but I love building things, stacking things, organizing get the picture.  When you have kids it's great because you get to do a lot of fun things from your own childhood.....both of my boys love to build and stack and sort!! I {heart} Legos!

M: Mexican Food
Black beans...white rice....chips....guac....cheese....margaritas....tell me when and I'll be there!!

N: Night Terrors!
Since I was a little girl I've suffered - and so has my family!  Most kids grow out of it before they're 10 I think...but not this lady! {{My poor husband!}} I definitely give us both at least 1 heart attack every night!  What can I say.....I like to keep it interesting! ;)

O: Orange Juice
I very rarely drink OJ.  Maybe if we're out for brunch or something.  But for me there's a very fine line between "oh this perfectly quenched my refreshing" and "I think I'm going to be sick!"  Am I alone or do you agree??

P: Pickles
From afar I always want one, but 1 bite reminds me that I do not like pickles! Not even when I was pregnant. Nope!

Q: Q-tip
I love q-tipping my ears! (super weird, right?) I know it's bad for you, blah, blah, blah! And I don't do it to my kids...but I think it feels so good!

R: Race
I'm competitive and can make ANYTHING a race! And I will! lol  Sometimes I use it to get my kids moving - "Put your shoes and socks on...who can finish first...I'll count to 20...GO!" :)

S: Scared
Of everything...including my shadow! Literally! But I'm trying really hard not to instill this in my kids! I can't WAIT until my kids are old enough to get the bugs in the house!! #NoFear ( <----remember that brand??)

T: Tennis
Tennis was always my sport.  I took a private lesson every Saturday for YEARS! (Many of those days I'd pray for rain because it was so early on Saturday mornings! lol)  I was actually on the Varsity Team in high school for a couple of years.  I don't play at all these days but it's so popular among the moms (and dads actually!) at pre-school....sometimes it makes me want to get back into it!

Tell me something I probably don't know about you!!!
What are you up to tonight???
