This fun little survey has been floating around the blog world for the past couple of weeks, and since I know y’all have been itching to get to know me better, I thought I would do my part and fill it out.

Enjoy your Sunday, everyone!

1. What is one of your favorite ways to spend your Saturday?
Sleep in a little, make a comforting breakfast (oatmeal, pancakes, etc.), and lounge around before getting into the heart of the day.

2. Name your top three favorite TV shows.
Modern Family, The Middle, and Friends (reruns)

One of the best scenes ever!

3. Would you rather be in pictures or take them?
Both.  But if I had to choose, I would say be in them! 

4. Why do you blog?
Originally, I started this blog to share information centered around health and fitness.  And now, it’s become so much more for me – a creative outlet, a supportive community, a way to share my thoughts on random things with friends, family, and complete strangers. Smile

5. Share five websites you visit regularly.
Gmail, CNN, Twitter, Facebook, and (no shame!)

6. If you could have lunch with one person from your Twitter list, who would it be?
There are quiet a few people I’d love to chat with, but if I had to choose one, I would say Deepak Chopra.

7. List a few of your favorite snacks.
Blueberries and yogurt, cereal/granola, Babybel cheese wedges, Clif Mojo Mountain Mix bar, nuts…

imagesMust try this bar!

8. Do you have a pet? If so, what kind?
No siree…no pets here.  I’m allergic to cat hair, and for the majority of my life, dogs have scared the s*** out of me.  That is slowly starting to change, so maybe a dog is in my future (Vishnu, by future, I mean years from now!).

9. Which three material possessions would you struggle to live without?
My cell phone, my chapstick, and my rings (engagement + the one my grandma gave me)

10. What’s your favorite drink?
My non alcoholic beverage of choice is water, and my alcoholic beverage of choice would be a mojito.


11. Do you enjoy cooking?
I do!  It’s fun and relaxing, but that’s not to say I don’t enjoy it when others cook for me.  That’s fun too!

12. Do you have children?
Not yet.  First comes marriage…

13. What are your favorite hobbies?
Reading, blogging, exercising, cooking

14. Would you consider yourself to be shy or outgoing?
I’m definitely not shy, but I’m not always outgoing.  It just depends on who I’m with and what we’re doing.

15. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would you change?
My patience level – I would increase it.

16. Who is your favorite actor/actress?
I really don’t have any favorites.  I usually judge actors/actresses based on their roles.

17. What’s the coolest thing you’ve done this week?
I turned 28 on Monday!


18. Do you live near your family or far from them?
Far.  My parents are in Atlanta, my sister’s in Chicago, and Vishnu’s in Fort Lauderdale.  I wish we all lived within 10 minutes of each other.  Hopefully one day…

19. List three of your talents.
I’m pretty good at doing math in my head, I’m a speed reader, and I’m getting really good at giving presentations.

20. What is your greatest attribute?
I think my greatest attribute is the
passion I bring to almost everything I do.

Your turn!  Answer some of these questions and tell me more about you.

  1. Firstly a very happy belated birthday, P!! Why didn’t you say anything?? Nonetheless hope you had a fabulous day – last birthday as an unmarried ;)! We share similar tv tastes- FRIENDS & Modern Family for the win! As for favorite drinks, water is my non-alcoholic choice. In terms of alcohol, lately I am loving vodka with half soda water and half orange juice!

    1. Thank you, my friend! I’m not a birthday person but when trying to find an answer for that question, I didn’t have anything cool to talk about! So I went with that. Haha! And I’ll have to try that vodka concoction next time I’m out. Sounds good!

  2. Happy Birthday, Parita!!

    I love that one of the things you would struggle to live without is chapstick. That made me giggle. I’m the same way. I have a tub of the good stuff at my desk, on my nightstand, in my coat pocket, in my purse…everywhere! I’m Prathiba and I’m a chapstick addict. 🙂

  3. Happy belated birthday! I loved getting to know more about you! And how could I forget chapstick for things I can’t live without? I’m kind of an addict.

    And mm, I love mojitos! Can’t wait for summer. 🙂

  4. I love Friends too. My favorite shows are Friends, Desperate Housewives and Kardashians (I know, pathetic). 🙂 I also love Oprah – but now I just watch her on OWN. Favorite drinks – Chai, of course, and Mango Mojito, Lychee Martini. I can’t live without my phone, creditcard, and camera.

    Happy Belated Birthday Partia! Hope it was wonderful. 🙂

  5. Happy Birthday!!! I will also be turning 28 later this year. I love this survey was nice getting to know more about you, and we have a lot in common! I am also not a pet person, and dogs scare me, unless they are tiny and cute and don’t jump on me. Mojito is also my go to drink of choice! We have the same hobbies, and I’m also very impatient. The only main difference I see is that I’m definitely not a speed reader or good at mental math 😉

  6. Happy belated birthday!! Can’t believe you didn’t say anything!

    Hope you had a good one 🙂

    Awww…dogs are gorgeous but I get the scared factor – I think a lot of Indians tend to be a little skittish around dogs, esp bigger ones!

    Fave shows?? Far too many to name but Friends is always a classic:)

    1. Thank you VERY much!

      Yes, I’ve found that Indians are scaredy cats when it comes to dogs and really animals of any kind. I have so many funny childhood stories I could share!

  7. Happy Belated Birthday!! Omg so sorry! Yeahy to turning 28yrs young. Btw this is a good year for Aquarius’ 🙂 Mojito’s are great, try it with strawberries so good.
