300 Posts and 10 things

Hi guys. Hope your Monday treated you well. Mine was pretty good. I worked from home and then we had our second to last house walk through (closing time is approaching quickly)!! My parents were nice enough to come down to help us on the walk through. Afterwards, Josh and I ran to Fridays for dinner (my wonderful Aunt had sent us a gift certificate). I got a big ole salad but didn't take a pic.

Today marks my 300th post! In honor of this occasion, I will share 10 random things about myself with you :) (Esi recently tagged me to do this meme).

1. I LOVE apples- I usually eat at least one (or two) a day!
2. My parents, especially my mom, usually call me by my middle name (Lynn) vs. Erica
3. I don't like wine or champagne. I was a very classy bride at my wedding drinking miller lite straight from the bottle ;)
4. Josh and I shared the same major at Penn State and met in class (how nerdy ;)
5. Josh proposed to me with a bulldog (and a ring) in a giant ring box.

6. I cannot control myself around dried pineapple or dried mango ;)

7. I am incapable of styling my hair. If it turns out looking really good one day its just random luck ;) I don't get those round brushes at all !

8. I use to have tons of freckles when I was younger and I hated them. Now that they've faded, I wish they would come back.

9. I really want to have 1 kid (yes, just 1!)

10. I hope to have more free time in the future to dedicate to teaching group fitness classes. My ideal would be certified to teach 2 cardio and 1 weights (Body Pump!!) class.

Yayy. I usually don't tag anyone, but I'm feeling saucy. Erin of Care to Eat, Lesley of Living Life, Krista of Krista's Kravings and Elise of Hungry Hungry Hippie- you're on if your up for it :)

And a proposal with a bull dog? HELL YES, how cute!

I also totally can't style my hair...

Laura said...

I can't figure out how to use a round brush either. I mean I get it, I just can't seem to do it. :)

I hope everything goes well with the house!

Awwwwww I love the proposal - that is awesome!!!!

btw, from seeing frank on the blog, i have 99% convinced bill that that is the dog we should get haha :)

lesley said...

I'm up for it : )

Since doing a 25 random things the other day I have since thought of more so I'm glad for this opportunity ; )

Ha, and I totally understand the hair styling thing ... I can't figure out those round brushes or any brushes that are supposed to style your hair with!!

Trust, Hope, Believe said...

I love apples too!! After college, I am really interested in getting involved in teaching fitness classes.. How did you get certified?

greendogwine said...

Yay! Loved the facts - especially that you are a Miller Lite girl just like me! :)

Bridget said...

Fun list!! That proposal is the most amazing thing ever...I must tell Brian about that one, he knows how badly I want a dog (or two)!

ksgoodeats said...

CONGRATS ON 300!!!

Cutest.Proposal.Ever! Way to go Josh! And hey - having only one kid is perfectly fine although I may be a little biased ;)

Bridget said...

Happy 300th post!

just me said...

Heather said...

i'm kind of developing a crush on frank. he's sort of totally adorable!!! and how cute that he was part of your proposal!!! i love it!

carolinebee said...

haha you are SO saucy...I swear you need three hands to style your hair, you have to blow dry with one, hold the brush with one, and then hold the hair up right!? UGH it's so hard. haha I LOVE your miller lite story!! That will so be me :D I'm also a big michelob ultra fan, and the new MGD lite is ok ;D

Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point said...

i just told husband about your proposal and he is super jealous -- he says thats how he shouldve proposed to me! LOL

Amelia (AC/DC: Highways to Health) said...

ttfn300 said...

fun fun :)

Esi said...

300 posts!! Woohoo!!! I can't believe you don't like wine and champagne. My life would be lost without them. I like how you classed it up at your wedding though :)

Heather McD (Heather Eats Almond Butter) said...

Congrats on your 300th post! Wow, that is super exciting. I loved reading your random facts. I hear ya on the kids as I used to want 3 or 4 kids, but now I'm thinking maybe 1, 2 at the most!

Don't even get me started on dried pineapple. My favorite is by the Bare Fruit company - no added sugar! I had to stop buying it because it kept disappearing. :)

Good luck with all the house stuff...almost all done!

Pearl said...

happy 300th post! and a bulldog and a ring? how adorable!

foodsthatfit said...

That's so funny about the dried mangoes! I am the same way and don't even buy them anymore b/c I end up eating the whole bag! Talk about stomach ache!

I loved reading your proposal story on Jenn's blog awhile ago. It was SO CUTE!
I'll work that meme into my post today. You're so sweet Erica!
Yay 300!

MizFit said...

Holly said...

Congrats on 300 posts!!

I love your no. 3 - that is me, too! Wine is so classy, I wish I liked it. But it makes me barfy. :-)

lauren said...

I love the way Josh proposed. I dont think I have styled my hair once in my life. I wouldnt know what to do and definitely dont have the right equipment.

congrats on 300 posts!

Fitnessista said...

I Run for Fun said...

Yay! 300 posts!

Ooh...I love dried mango too.

Becca said...

Congrats on hitting #300!

Ya I'm the same way with those round brushes...I can't tell you how many times I had to get assistance to get the damn thing out. I'm all about ponytails or just letting my hair be its crazy, curly self.

Smart man, what girl could refuse a proposal that came with a bulldog?

Diana said...

Aww I love learning random things about all my blogger buddies! :) I am the same way about my hair -- most days, I spend less than 5 minutes on it (the amount of time it takes me to blow it dry and brush it straight).

P.S. LOVE apples too! Definitely eat at least 1 or 2 a day! :)

Marissa said...

I don't get those round brushes either! Tricky stuff - lol :)

lilveggiepatch said...

Josh is ADORABLE. I can't believe he proposed with a BULLDOG... that is too perfect!

Lori said...

My middle name is Lynn too! :) I can't believe that Frank was part of the proposal. That is so AWESOME!

HangryPants said...

What a cute proposal story! I cannot comprehend round brushes, or really hair dryers either. :D

I love apples too!
