It’s time to answer some of the questions I was asked by all of you fabulous ladies the other day:
- How often do Pete and I call/ text each other?
Pete and I text pretty often. It’s hard because he lives in Indiana and I like to keep in touch with him while I’m in class or taking transportation to and from school. Pete prefers talking on the phone rather than texting me and he says the reasons I like to text are:
- Because I like to drag out a 5 minute conversation into a 1 hour conversation
- Because I’m a lot younger than him so texting was popular for me during my teenage years.
Pete’s 27 years old and I’m 21, texting didn’t even exist when he was in high school! LOL…
How long have you been a Christian?
Ever Since I was born I was raised a Greek Orthodox Christian! Pete is also Greek Orthodox. His baptismal name is Panagioti and mine is Aggeliki, I think those two names are going to look pretty sexy in cursive on our wedding invitations
What profession are you going into?
I am an elementary education major at Loyola University and loving every second of it! I will be finishing with student teaching in the fall of 2012 and can’t wait to get out into the real world and begin teaching 4th or 5th grade! I love kiddies!
What made you start a blog?
Sophia from Raven Waves influenced me to start my blog and I’m so happy she did because I would have never gotten into as good of shape as I’m in without this blog. Blogging led me to a true lifestyle change and I’m so happy with it!
Any dream wedding thoughts? The ideal dress? Venue you’ve always wanted to be married at? The cake you want? Anything?
Honestly, I haven’t thought about my wedding in detail at all. Sure I’ve browsed the pretty dresses and rings online with some of my girlfriends but never took an in depth look at anything. Since I’m Greek two things are certain:
- My husband will have to convert to Greek Orthodox if he wishes to marry me (Pete’s already Greek Orthodox CHECK!)
- We will have to get married in the Greek Orthodox Church I grew up in. The Greek Orthodox church I attend has been a huge part of my life ever since I can remember so I’d like to get married there. Plus, the isle is super super long and what bride doesn’t want a long isle to walk down with a gorgeous dress on?!
When did Pete tell you he loves you?
The first time Pete told me he loved me he didn’t really know what or how to say it. We had been dating for only about a month or so before he said it. He basically said something like, “What if I told you I felt stronger about you then just enjoying your company?” I kind of understood what he meant by that but played along anyway, “What do you mean?” I asked. He continued,”well I mean I think I love you” and I said, “Wow I can’t believe you said that it all came so quick haha.” He proceeded to explain to me that I don’t have to tell him that I love him back and he wanted me to wait until I was ready to do that when I truly felt that way. I already knew I loved him and told him that right then and there but he refused to believe me and said the only reason I said it back was because he said it first. Totally untrue, sorry Pete.
Have you ever kissed in the rain?
Oh man oh man, this one is a GREAT/PAINFUL (physically painful) memory… Pete and I were on our first date in March of 2010 and it was pouring rain outside we ended up mingling at the bar for quite sometime and then walked back to our car that was parked SUPER far from the bar. Neither one of us could remember the street that we parked on so were basically wandering lost in the rain. I was complaining the entire time (what else is new) and was so sick of getting wet that I started frantically running and looking for the car. I slid face first and skinned my knees and palms on the freezing concrete. Pete saw me fall-I was mortified (my first date was ruined – or so I thought)… He helped me up and said something about how I looked really beautiful with my hair up like that…. Then he kissed me.
I really appreciated these questions from you guys! Keep them coming because I love reminiscing about the past!
Breakfast yesterday really helped fueled me up for my Jillian Michaels Shred workout with Sophia!
Panda Puff Cereal With Siggi's Probiotic Yogurt (cream) and splash of milk
I recommend buying these! Only 45 calories and so delicious with cereal I used about a half a cup milk and one of these small containers for my cereal above.
My late night snack yesterday consisted of more of my favorite new cereal:
Strawberry Banana Smoothie with my new favorite cereal....
Peanut Butter Panda Puffs!
I also tossed a few of these into the smoothie mix:
I actually bought the chocolate filled squares not the french toast ones. I wasn't too impressed with this cereal and enjoyed the Panda Puffs much more.
I also snacked on some of my favorite granola for lunch today after my 5 mile run… I’m on a total cereal kick… HELP
YOU ALL MUST TRY THIS!
I made myself a nice portion of “cereal trailmix” for lunch using….
Custom made Cereal just for this Fitness Apple!
and an assortment of the others I mentioned above.
So now the QUESTIONS:
What’s your favorite cereal? Do you make your own granola cereal?
I’ve noticed everyones a huge fan of making unique oatmeals but have any of you tried to make your own cereal combo?
Do you mix cereals together like me?
Do you eat your cereal in something other than milk? Orange juice (I knew someone who did this!)
Any more questions you have for me about my relationship with Pete or anything else? I really loved hearing these!!!
Time for the Bachelor!
