Ok, ok, ok! I am joining in the fun, OF COURSE!! I am probably the last doing it, so I hope you are not already bored with this ABC survey.
Before I start, I want to wish you all a marvelous weekend! I can not wait for it to start – it is still summer weather here and I have NO plans at all for the whole weekend!! I LOVE that. I will probably spend 3/4 of the time at the lake. Yay!
A. Attached or Single? Attached.
We’ve known each other since 1998, but only met again in 2008 and started our relationship in September 2009 – funny how life plays, right? If you are interested, I will tell you the whole story about how we met in another post.
C. Cake or pie? Cookie. Wait….that’s not the question. Ok, if I had to choose, I definitely go with cake. But it must be Mom’s chocolate cake! Otherwise, cookies please.
D. Day of choice? Any day. Everyday in my meditation, I choose to make the best out of my day, if it is a Monday or a Saturday. There is something good in each day we just have to be aware of it. It’s a choice.
E. Essential Item? Hair Tie. And Water. Random, I know. But without them, I feel not myself.
F. Favorite color? Green. And black. I know, black isn’t considered as a color, but I am in LOVE with my black pants, bags and high heels. So classic. And I love to wear green too. Besides that I am obsessed with green veggies. Or green food overall. Or why would I create green pancakes and green frittatas??
G. Gummy bears or worms? I used to eat worms like a mad woman. Maybe, when you’re over 30 that stops? Maybe not, but I definitely prefer some good swiss chocolate (clearly, I AM Swiss.) – but if I had to choose, then yes I’d go for worms again. Sour worms.
H. Home town? Basel, Switzerland. Today, I live in both Zurich and Basel.
I. Favorite Indulgence? Chocolate and Prosecco. Or Cookies and Prosecco. Ok, just any dessert and Prosecco, mkay???!! 🙂 AND of course shopping – beauty stuff, shoes accessories, clothes (which I shouldn’t).
J. January or July? July for sure. It might sound rude, but I hate January (sorry for the ones who’s birthday is in January…) – it’s the time when I struggle the most with winter and depressions. In July I am a happy camper because it is summer and, well,….it’s summer.
K. Kids? Yes, I am old and should hurry up, but I don’t feel like it yet. Maybe one day.
L. Life isn’t complete without?
Chocolate and Prosecco. Friends. Family. BBQ’s. And vacations on the beach.
M. Marriage date? No idea! Ask the man! But I think we are just both way too lazy to organize a huge party…..someone wants to do that for us? Seriously, we’re fine just the way it is right now. Maybe one day.
N. Number of brothers/sisters? One older brother. I loved him as a child, didn’t like him so much as a teen and now love him again, forever I hope 🙂
O. Oranges or Apples? Apples, but I hardly ever eat them unless it’s my homemade applesauce 🙂
P. Phobias? I was terrified of spiders and cockroaches until I lived in the Philippines for 3 months and had to deal with them everyday (in the bathroom at night – yes.) – I got over it. But I absolutely freak out when I get lost. I think I am traumatized as it happened so many times 🙂 You better believe I turn into a drama queen when I get lost.
I love quotes, they can be so inspiring. Some of my favorites:
R. Reasons to smile? Waking up in a warm bed and being healthy.
S. Season of choice? Spring. I LOVE spring. It’s like the world is back in life; people get into a better mood; blossoms everywhere; going outside without freezing your butt off is a clear option; and the smell…..the air smells SO good.
T. Tag 5 People. Well. You all did it already I guess, but if you didn’t, then go ahead!
U. Unknown fact about me? I used to be a really good Saxophone player (or still am). My teacher wanted to coach me and make me professional. But I was a child (10 years old) and preferred to play outside than practicing the saxophone every day for hours….anyway, I can play it very well. I inherited some good musical talent from my Dad. He played the piano and me the Sax – and you bet we rocked some awesome sessions together. When he died, I stopped. It just didn’t feel right anymore to play without him.
V. Vegetable? Brussel sprouts, spinach and cucumber.
W. Worst habit? Currently still overtraining. But I am working on that. And hoarding clothes. I buy something, forget about it, never wear it, and buy something new. Fatal. My wallet is crying and my closet exploding. It’s a situation.
X. Xray or Ultrasound? Do I have to chose one I like more? Nah. Neither of them.
Y. Your favorite food? Clearly, it is impossible to chose one. I limit it to 3, agreed? Agreed. Ok: Eggs. Berries. Nut Butter.
Z. Zodiac sign? Taurus.
I sometimes read horoscopes, but I only believe them if they are positive. Which is perfect, because if you believe that something positive is going to happen, it will.
