Because Who Doesn’t Like to Talk About Themselves…

I’m actually(not so surprised) that many peoples favorite pancake is the a peanut butter and chocolate.  I have to admit that is near the top of mine especially topped with some chopped up nanners.

What did shock me though was the idea of chocolate mint pancakes.  I have never really thought about mint pancakes but I’m not a big minty person actually.  Maybe if I had an awesome mint pancake I would change my mind.


I have a favour to ask you guys. In my run today, I thought of a great idea…I don’t know if you remember but last year up until last month had a segment called Factual Friday.  I would post interesting facts (and slightly strange stories) about myself on Fridays, to get to know me on a level above pancakes.  It would give you a break from boring food and would give me the opportunity to talk about myself.  Who doesn’t like that?

Anywho-I’m looking to begin that series again but with stories from you guys.  Each Friday, I want to do a Factual Friends Fridays or (Double F Fridays…).  I would love if people could submit a story or something that was very influential in their lives.  I have come up with a few ideas to inspire you with: how you overcame an injury/problem, how you lost weight, gained weight, decided to become a runner/swimmer/cyclist, how you decided to become a vegan/vegetarian, a major impact in your life, your college decision, your grad school decision.  Basically something extremely influential in your life that you can share.  Oh yes and please add 1000 photos because you know I like those.   Anything that you find interesting that you would love to ramble off about.

Anywho if you are interested just email me at and you will forever be famous and loved.   You don’t have to have a blog, you just have to want to share your story and talk about yourself.  🙂

Here are some of my favorites posted within the last few months incase ya missed them:

Not all abuse is physical

Shoulder Injury
The Scale


Incase you wondered why I had a plethora of free time today(because clearly you stalk my life) , I didn’t have to go the high school since I spent so much time there this week already.  So I took lots of pictures of myself being a real girl.  My real outfit today included an Abercrombie and Fitch Tshirt (this is from the 7th grade aka nearly a decade old…)  If you find me a new striped shirt like this, we will be bffs forever but until then I will wear this shirt until I’m 70.  No really and the rest of the outfit includes an Abercrombie tank top along with gap legging jeans.  I love gap jeans they fit perfectly.

Yes Tyra this is my fierce pose

I even have real girl tamed hair!

And then I went to library...and got lots of work done.


My run today was awesome sauce again.  I wasn’t as fast as yesterday but I felt just as good which makes me happy.   My heels still aren’t hurting so I think it’s a sign.  I also got my swim on and did about 3000 yards.


For lunch today Bonna and I went to the dining hall.  I seriously love the dining hall salad bar because of all the awesome choices.  Aka-I can add beans, olives, spinach, grapes, blue cheese vinegar all on one salad.  It can fall (because there is clearly too much in the bowl) onto the table and no one will judge me.



Then after my only class of the day, nutrition, Julie and I went to Quiznos.  Since I’m obsessed with their seafood salads-I opted for a giant seafood salad and Sammie.

And Quiznos Seafood Salads

*I can assure you I had more than these two salads throughout the day.


Questions for you:
1.       Do you have a favorite brand of jeans?
When I wear jeans (um once a week maybe…), I wear my gap jeans.  I have a couple of pairs of other brands but they seem to just stay in my closet.  I really need to get rid of some of my clothes.

Feel free to email me if you have an awesome story for me to feature on my blog.

  1. Love the story idea! And I don’t know what brand my jeans are, but I love them. It’s hard finding pairs of jeans that feel and look great, you know?

  2. I agree, I love the story idea! I have to think of something good! 🙂

    American Eagle are my favotire jeans but their sizes very so freaking much. Right now I have one pair that are stretchy and so relaxed that I basically wear them everyday for everything. I should have bought like 5 pairs of those.

    I find it so hard to find jeans because I have such awesome “runner’s thighs.” My waist fits but the thighs are always tight. Such is life.

  3. I love American Eagle jeans- those are the best :). I also have some from Charlotte Ruse, they’re called Refuge or something, but I went in there the other day and apparently they don’t sell that brand anymore which sucks, bleh.

    Both of those salads look totally awesome. I love some salad :). And there’s no shame in wearing a t-shirt from 7th grade, if it fits wear it! I have clothes from college I still wear… it’s not like anyone from 7th grade is likely to see you wearing that shirt and if they did they wouldn’t remember it, haha.


  4. I love Guess jeans and Aeropostale. I have a pair of AE jeans but they never fit well on my waist 🙁 I’m not convinced about the mint pancake lol I’ve never liked mint in anything haha

  5. One of my favorite jeans right now are aeropostale. Basically I just get whatever works though! I have the worst time finding jeans that fit right.

    I like the story idea for fridays! I will try to think of a good story 🙂

  6. BALLIN idea for fun fact Friday. I’ll probably send ya a story! my fave jeans are from American Eagle. They were a Christmas gift my mom gave me when I was 12!!! Yup, almost a decade later I’m still rockin’ them! Some of my friends like to make fun of me, but they’re just hating cuz my jeans can stand the test of time! 🙂

  7. I love your idea of FF Fridays!

    My favorite jeans actually come from Target — it used to be Express and Gap but they just don’t fit anymore! I also really like Silvers too.

  8. Chocolate mint pancakes. I have not thought of that either. I have recently became obsessed with mint and chocolate, especially in the ice cream form.

    I haven’t been to Quiznos in so long, but that looks good. I went to Subway today and for about a good twenty minutes I smelt like Subway. It was gross.
    I barely wear jeans. Hahah. My favorite brand is just like those skater wear jean so Element or Bilabong. I don’t really care. The cheaper, the better.
    By the way, I love your idea of the FF Friday’s.

  9. I love this story idea, I’m definitely gonna think of something (I have a few ideas)! Mint pancakes are a must make! Christmas morning, I made peppermint pancakes with chocolate chips + peppermint bark. They were obviously good.

  10. Ahh I’m emailing you 🙂 As much as I love reading about your pancake and waffle adventures, I think that Factual Friend Fridays would be fun.
    I wear aeropostale jeans. They fit me nicely and are super cheap. I love it and my wallet loves it.

  11. I like American Eagle jeans. And jeans from The Buckle…but those are a little too much for my college budget to handle right now :). Question- if you wear jeans once a week, then what do you wear on the other days? Please tell me I’m not the only one who considers stretchy yoga pants as acceptable clothing ;).

  12. I think that factual fridays sounds cool! Maybe me at some point…

    Ew gross, Olives. lol.

    Peanut butter and chocolate pancakes I guess you really can’t beat…. but I’d prefer peanut butter and banana and marshmallows

  13. It’s super difficult for me to find jeans that fit right, especially because I’m so short. Even though I’m in my late twenties, Hollister jeans are still the ones that fit me right. Probably because I’m doomed to shop in juniors forever. No wonder why I don’t feel like an adult!

  14. I love this idea! I don’t talk about myself because I think your blog visits would cut out after any display of my life 🙂 I didn’t know quiznos had salads! esp seafood ones! that’s amazing

  15. American eagle, boyfriend jeans. The ONLY jeans I ever like every.single.time and wear to the ground ( I have a few pairs from like 6 YEARS ago! eeks!)
