You asked... I answered

Thank you so much for asking questions of me...
Some of the questions were much more difficult to answer than I originally expected them to be, but I'm always up for a challenge.

So without further adieu.. here are your answers

What keeps you motivated?

I truly believe success and the constant fear of failure keeps me motivated. I look back over what I have accomplished since graduating college, being promoted into my current job, buying a condo, being in a 5 1/2 year committed relationship, that is what makes me motivated to keep going. As far as my personal life, looking back over my past 2 years and to see the transformation that I have made by running and eating right, that is plenty to keep me motivated to go to the gym.

And of course, like any human, we are ALL afraid of failure.. so if I have to push myself a little bit harder, I will, just to know that I haven't failed at something.

Where's your favorite place to go out to eat? (not counting Piada!)

Clearly my blog friends know me a little too well! I mean I do LOVE piada {for those of you not from Columbus, it is a fast casual restaurant, basically the Italian version of Chipotle}
My favorite place to eat would probably be an sushi restaurant. We normally go to Asian Gourmet which is near by our house, but I love finding new sushi restaurants.

If you weren't in HR, what would you do?

I {along with every other girl} would LOVE to have my own party planning company. I love working on details of events, being able to use my creativity, and being able to see something from beginning to end. That is the most rewarding piece of event planning in my opinion.

Best place you've visited?

Can I have 3? Please?

My family goes to Lake Cumberland annually, and to me it is one of the most relaxing places on earth. Your biggest worry is when is it too early for a cocktail? and when the next meal is! It is so relaxing and just enjoyable to be on a lake.

I am also partial to Vail, Colorado. Both times I have been there we have had the most beautiful weather, with a ton of fresh powder and beautiful blue skies. The snowboarding there is unbelievable, and the customer service is the ski town is absolutely AMAZING! One of the most friendliest places I have ever been.

My favorite "lets have a blast" city would be Key West. A bunch of girls and myself went here during part of our spring break and we had an absolute blast. The most laid back city, and everyone is there for a good time. I can't wait to go back.

What is your funniest childhood story?

I don't know if I can think of one of the funniest childhood stories, as I can one of the most embarrassing childhood stories.

I played golf in high school. I joined the girls golf team before I started HS and we had a match the first day of school. I was already concerned with being a freshman AND playing golf, but I thought, no big deal, keep your head up, and try to be as graceful as possible while walking into school with your book bag, your duffel bag of golf clothes, your lunch box AND my golf bag... well that grace part went RIGHT out the door as my golf clubs hit the door frame, i bent over to pick something out and all of my clubs went spilling out into the hallway, and I just remember sitting there in the main lobby of the high school being 150% humiliated that this had JUST happened to me... and realizing there goes 10 cool points for the freshman girl golfer!

What's your least favorite color?

There really isn't a color that I dislike.. however I LOATHE when khaki is paired with any color of gray, whether it be heather gray or light gray.. ooo boy its not a good combo!

What fashion trend can you not see yourself getting into?

I wish I could like/pull off the cute little booties.. but I don't think its going to happen. It took me long enough to find a pair of tall boots that fit me and didn't get stuck! Typically by the time I buy something it is half way out the door from being in style anyway.

How did you put up with my husband all through college? ;)

This question made me laugh. To clarify, Katie G is Molly's {you know my adorable Goddaughter} mom. I met her husband in the first few weeks of school my freshman year. My first day hanging out with Jason we stayed up until 7am talking about our lives, and how we got to the place we were at that day. Although Jason and I did not always see eye to eye, I knew that he would always be someone I could call my friend. Little did I know that Jason would end up reconnecting after college and becoming as close as we have again. I am so lucky to have this entire family so close to me now.

{I don't know if that really answered your question Katie, but truthfully, looking back on it, I'm not sure how I put up with him, but I am most certainly glad I did, because I don't think our relationship would be as strong as it is today!}

What made you want to start blogging? :)

What truly made me start blogging was Kelly's Korner and her Show us your life tour. I LOVED reading them, and one day, I decided that I wished I could participate. So after a little {okay maybe a lot} of encouragement from my friends, I started a blog!

Do you plan on losing more weight or are you in maintenance? (Not that you need to, just curious ;))

I would love to hit the 140 lb marker but I don't know if that is reasonable at this point. This year I am focusing 100% on toning and training for my 2 half marathons as well as the full marathon. I will continue to step on the scale every morning to make sure I'm at least maintaining my weight, but I"m not going to continue to focus on the training and toning.

How did you end up in PR?

Somedays I wish I was in PR... but alas I'm in Human Resources on the recruiting side of things. I ended up here because I was an intern in between my two senior years {yes it took me 5 years to graduate.. why leave after 4 when you can have 5 years} and I did it 1/2 in marketing and 1/2 in HR. HR offered me a job after I graduated and I decided to take the opportunity and run with it.

Where is your favorite place to shop for clothes ?

My favorite place to shop for clothes is the Limited. I love how they fit, I love how you can always find a good deal there, and I love that they are both trendy as well as appropriate for work.

Where's one place you'd love to travel but haven't made it to yet?

I would love to go to Jackson Hole to go snowboarding. I have heard its challenging and beautiful.

Like I said, some of these questions challenged me to think a little, and others made it fun to reflect back on some previous experiences of mine. Thank you so much again for asking these questions, I really appreciate it :)

I love Key West! We were married there and I wish I was there now. So laid back but also a good time!!

Kelly said...

O.M.G!!! The golf club story is just horrible and hilarious!! I can SOOO see myself doing that. Gah. I feel for poor little 15 year old Lindsey ;-)

I LOVE Vail too. It's my fave place to ski. And Key West is so fun too!

I agree-- I don't think I could see myself hopping on the little bootie train, though I do think they're cute. I LOVE the Limited too. Such CUTE stuff.

Fun post!

Loved reading this!

I do have to say I'm very jealous of your job. I was the same as you, did an internship during college half the time spent in HR and half in Marketing and loved them both. Unfortunately they weren't hiring when I graduated college and I needed a full-time job so I had to find something else. I miss HR! :(
