We Want to Know Wednesday #15

Wednesday, January 25, 2012


Mamarazzi has provided the questions for this week's We Want to Know Wednesday, also hosted by Crazymama and Queso.  I am so impressed because Mamarazzi is in the middle of moving!

{1} What is your favorite room in your house and why? Bonus points for a picture.
{2} What is your favorite time of day and why?
{3} What is your favorite genre of music (or band/singer) and why?
{4} What is your favorite "go to" snack? Is it something you keep on hand?
{5} What is your favorite form of exercise or way to keep moving?

1.     My favorite room in our home is our art studio, for obvious reasons!


2.     My favorite time of day is early morning because it is when I am the most productive.  I am a morning person!

3.     I like all kinds of music, but I tend to listen to Alt Nation more than any other station. Lately I have been listening to Coldplay, The Black Keys, Foster the People,  The Avett Brothers and Taylor Swift.

4.     My favorite go to snack is popcorn.  I love it!  My second favorite is Fage fat free Greek yogurt with honey.  I also keep honeycrisp apples for a quick snack.


5.     I love to walk, just like Elizabeth Bennet!  I have an elliptical for days I cannot walk due to my schedule or weather.  I also like the hula hoop, but they are not like the ones we played with as kids.  They are larger and much, much heavier.  I am cross training  ;P  

This video is from a local class.

I want you to link-up and answer these questions!

Until next time...

  1. I've been enjoying greek yogurt recently. It's not a overwhelmingly sweet as the regular stuff in the store.

  2. Oh my gosh we are so alike. I am such a morning person and always say I am not a good mom after 7 pm. I sort of shut down in the evening but if the kids or hubby wakes me at 5 am I am ready to go no problem. You are inspiring me with all your weight loss and work outs. I put on a few over Christmas and it makes me grumpy. I have been trying to get back at it this week. I need to stop baking for sure. Carbs are my downfall.

  3. Love your art studio, sooooo want a room where I can make art!

    Love greek yogurt with honey, that's the best flavor!

    ALso, Love love love hula hooping! Sooooo much. Great video. I buy my hoops from Haley from Wide Eyed Smilin, and she's actually running sale on hoops right now! Custom made only $28 includes shipping. IF you wanted one that is.

    Her site:

  4. I love it when you do this!!! Great video!

  5. I had no idea you were into hooping! I need to find a class, too- I can't seem to figure out any tricks on my own. :(

    And Greek yogurt is the best! I prefer Chobani to Fage, for breakfast every day.

  6. I LOVE Foster The People and Coldplay! Neat videos!


  7. So much fun learning more about you!
    I love Fage too and omg.... that hula hoop video is amazing! She makes it look so easy!
    I know it cannot be, wow.
    I am so uncoordinated when it comes to things like that!

  8. As I sit here eating my 100 calorie pop smart I'm loving that hoop class. Wish we had one. So I'll just dance when I can't walk.

  9. My favorite room is my basement office because it is where I can't hear the five kids! Every once in awhile I just need a few moments escape.
    My favorite time of day is early, early morning when it is quiet.
    I don't have a favorite genre of music - I love it all.
    My favorite "go to" snack is an apple or orange.
    My favorite form of exercise is gardening followed by biking.

  10. I am a morning person too. I just feel more productive and like to get ahead of everyone else in general, I mean. Even on weekends I can't sleep late. My favorite snack is pretzels. I am loving Lady Gaga. She's a trip but she has an awesome voice. I have been a Stevie Nicks fan forever. I enjoy getting out and walking with Buddy (my dog). I wish I could get motivated to pick up some weights again. That was a cool video.

  11. 1. Kitchen and Bedroom
    2. Early morning, too!
    3. Christian Rock and old hymns
    4. Snack - anything with lotsa sugar :/
    5. Gardening, yard work, painting. And I'm addicted to the gym now, in that I have withdrawal if I don't go.

  12. I am so not a morning person lol my favorite room is my craft room too. Cheers

  13. i really need to try hula hooping. a lot of people seem to be getting great results doing it!

    i am thankful for the little break in setting up home to come and read your answers. thanks so much for linking up!!

  14. this is a fun exercise.
    1. my bedroom, it's calming
    2. early morning as well, no one is up, coffee, candles lit and blogs
    3. alternative, fave is snow patrol or anything with gordon lightbody singing, then coldplay
    4. somersaults, a sunflower sed cluster, fewer calories than nuts and awesome!
    5. running, I am super bad at it but absolutely love it!

    Have a great day and thx for the kind words
