WWTKW: Grab a coffee, let’s chat…

You know how, on the odd occasion, a dreary rainy day is kind of welcome?  It’s one of those days.  A chance to sort of catch our collective breath around here; a slightly slower pace, a few less phones ringing…  and maybe a moment or two to answer the We Want to Know Wednesday questions!


Linking up with Scriptor & Kenzie.

1. If we met up for coffee what would we talk about?
2. What is one great thing that has happened to you this month?
3. Where is the last place you went?
4. If you could meet up with one or two bloggers who would they be?
5. What are your pet peeves?

My answers:

1. If we met up for coffee what would we talk about?  Honestly, that could be any number of things, depending on the day.  The book I’m reading, my current favourite TV show, how my hockey team is doing (sadly, this topic is null & void now until next season. *sigh*), TurboFire, Yoga, the cute things my nieces and nephew do, popular headlines in the news, how hot Adam Levine is… I love to chat!


2. What is one great thing that has happened to you this month?  May has been a pretty wonderful month!  I could choose any number of things, but just yesterday, stepping on the scales and discovering that I had officially lost 50 lbs. (actually, OVER 50 lbs.) was a moment I’d been waiting for – and hoping for – for a long time :)  Felt like I was walking on sunshine all day long!!!

3. Where is the last place you went?  My mom’s.  For breakfast.  Like I do every morning!

4. If you could meet up with one or two bloggers who would they be?  I always find this question so tough!  I’ve made so many wonderful friendships through blogging, and I think it would be so cool to someday meet them – so it’s hard to pick and choose just a few!  Nicole and I are keeping lists of things we each want to do if we ever visit each other’s respective hometowns; I’d love to sit down with Date Girl and meet her new baby boy!!; Stacie is someone that I think I’d really get along with; I feel like Steph and I would probably be great friends… That’s just to name a few!!!

5. What are your pet peeves?   I have many. LOL.  This week, though, the main ones would be mosquitoes, bitter Hab fans, and Ryan (that’s Lindsay’s hubby) coming up behind me at work when I’m sitting at my desk and MESSING MY DAMN HAIR.  He knows I have a meltdown over it, and yet, once every couple of months, he does it anyways.  And each time, he can’t understand why I don’t laugh and find it hilarious.  ugh. ;)

Happy Wednesday, friends!

Ha, ha, Jillian,
If I could reach Ryan's head I would so totally mess his hair for you!

Nicole said...

So what's the current tv show now? Is it in a previous post? I learned this morning I'm 3 behind. I guess Monday being a holiday is what caused me to sorta get behind. It's Wednesday right?!?! lol.

Stacie said...

I so need someone to cook me breakfast everyday...

Aww, so sweet of you to mention me! You are my reason for putting Canada on my list of places to visit...well, you and maybe Jesse Palmer has moved back and I could catch sight of him, oh, and you all have the little Skor minis that we don't have here...but mostly you!

Lindsay said...

Frigging Ryan! Ha ha! I keep telling him that he really shouldn't mess with a girls hair! As you can see, he really listens to me!


I better be seeing an "I lost 50 lbs and look fab!" post tomorrow Missy! ;)


Emmy said...

Sounds like Ryan needs a taste of his own medicine ;)

Congrats on the weight loss!! That is so so awesome! My husband I have been browsing through netflix for shows to watch and I saw Prison break and totally thought of you :)

Jillian said...

I hate when people mess up my hair too! and woo on the fifty pounds thats my goal too (I'm pretty sure I'll get it just by working at my new job, the amount I've walked lately is crazy and when we open I'm chasing carts as part of my job).

Steph said...

I think we would be good friends too. We would have to give up our diets for the weekend though. And fall off the wagon. ;)

Sarah said...

I agree with Lindsay! You better do a "I Lost 50lbs" post with all the details!!!

Jo said...

You lost 50 lbs! That is amazing! So happy for you!

Beth W said...

CONGRATULATIONS! It's amazing that you've lost 50 lbs. 50! I'm so, so happy that you found a system that you enjoy, and that works. Wahoooo!

Also, Ryan sounds a little dickish, like a grade school boy pulling your pigtails because it gets your attention. Ugh.

Mrs. Match said...

aww I'd love to sit down with you too!! :-) I always think how nice it'd be to get together with a blog friend and chat over coffee. I'd like to think it would be super easy, because it's like we already know each other. If you're ever in Northern California... :-)

Ricki Jill Treleaven said...

YAY!!! Congrats on your weight loss!!! BTW I hate it when someone messes with my hair, too!

SOOOOO late to the party....
