Friday Fun From A to Z

I always feel like a grandma on Friday nights. I’m just too pooped to do anything but relax and watch Fashion Police on E. I avoid making plans on Friday if I can help it. I’m 24 going on 65, and I am A-Ok with that! : ) I am always up for a good survey though. Thanks to Janetha for providing the template for a fun Friday post.

A is for age: 24, but going to be 25 next month!

B is for breakfast today: Oatmeal with fresh strawberries and blob of no sugar added pumpkin butter from market, a taste of sunflower butter, and sprinkling of hemp seeds.


C is for currently craving: Lula’s Sweet Apothecary Cashew Ice Cream

D is for dinner tonight: tons of hummus and moujadara lentils over spinach and marinated veggies


E is for favorite type of exercise: power yoga and spinning

F is for an irrational fear: Looking out windows at night

G is for gross food: soy yogurt…bleeeh. The texture – can’t do it.

H is for hometown: Born in Jacksonville, FL but grew up mostly in Syracuse, NY

I is for something important: Expressing your love and appreciation for family and friends often

J is for current favorite jam: This homemade blueberry from bb’s aunt mixed with ginger in my oats with pb.

Ohh she probably meant “jam” as in song. Well, then I always like when “We Found Love” by Rihanna comes on during spinning. I also really love “Sweet Pea” by Amos Lee

K is for kids: None at the moment, but recently changed my opinion on having them in the future. But first I need a dog again

L is for current location: mine and bb’s bedroom in NYC >> moving to Binghamton, NY next month

M is for the most recent way you spent money: food shopping (as usual) at Kaylustan’s – my favorite indian/middle eastern market in NYC

N is for something you need: more hours in the day and to win the lottery to pay for my student loans

O is for occupation: I am a neuroscience research tech for the next month and I have been for 3 years. My future occupation will be nurse and then hopefully acute care nurse practitioner and yoga teacher

P is for pet peeve: slamming doors

Q is for a quote:

“Remember, there are no mistakes, only lessons. Love yourself, trust your choices, and everything is possible.” - Cherie-Carter Scotts

R is for random fact about you: I am a karaoke queen. I can do ballads, pop, rap, oldies, 90′s, classic rock. I’ve been known to rock out as Axel Rose, MJ, and Madonna.

S is for favorite healthy snack: greek yogurt with granola and berries

T is for favorite treat: ice cream – in all forms!

U is for something that makes you unique: I have a scar on my left arm from a broken elbow when I was five

V is for favorite vegetable: Too hard to choose I love them all! It depends on the season and my mood. I’ve sung praises of sweet potatoes many times and literally eat them 3-4 times a week at least. But when I was younger I think the only veg I liked was brussel sprouts and I still love them now.

W is for today’s workout: just some good walking today after work before dinner

X is for X-rays you’ve had: arm, chest, head

Y is for yesterday’s highlight: Mine and bb’s first dinner together all week and watching Wheel of Fortune together during it

Z is for your time zone: Eastern Standard


Do you have an A to Z fun fact to share? What does your typical friday night look like?


  1. What a fun A-Z list! I’m completely with you on needing friday night for me. I’m a young old lady, and I’m okay with that.

    I’ve never even seen pumpkin butter or sunflower butter; I’ll have to check these out asap. I’m TOTALLY with you on N ($), S (Greek yogurt! Blueberries!), and V — I loooooove brussels sprouts! Just mentioned them in my recent post too, actually :) Good luck with your pending move upstate!

  2. I really enjoyed reading this and learning more about you!
    I feel the same way about Friday nights–that’s a great time to stay in and unwind.
