Tagged! It is about food!

As soon as I saw Big Daddy Diesel had been tagged I knew it was my turn : ) But I like to talk about food!

If you could eat anything without any health repercussions or guilt, what would your meal be?
Dessert! Dessert! Dessert! A lot of you are saying but Twila you eat dessert everyday! But I spend the whole time on the treadmill or bike saying "I ate a cupcake, I ate a cupcake!" I could honestly eat sweets until I threw up! I love junk! I could go days without eating meat, veggies or fruit and simply eat processed junk food : ) That is just sad to admit. I seriously have the worst eating habits knows to man.

If you could meet anyone living or dead who would it be and why?
I would love to meet my mom's dad. He passed away a few years before I was born and I hear a lot about him from my mom and her sisters. He just seems like a real neat guy. I have always been a little sad about that fact I did not know one of my grandparents.
On a lighter note I really want to meet Steven Tyler! He will always be my #1 celebrity crush. I am going to watch American Idol (a show I HATE) just to see him weekly.

Why did you start blogging and what did you expect when you started?
My original blog is about my son Parker. I started that blog in June 2008 when I first got pregnant but I miscarried. I kept my blog going during my infertility issues and kept the blog to serve as a pregnancy journal. Then I had a few family and friends following my blog to keep up with Parker. In January; by that time Parker was 1 and a half, I made a news year resolution to get in 2010 miles of exercise in the year 2010 so I started a running blog. The blog community had gotten me through a miscarriage, pregnancy, newborn days, and toddler days so I figured it would get me through becoming a runner! I have grown so much as a runner because of my blog friends; granted I feel like a stalker at times : )

What is the one book you could read over and over again?
I have read "Flowers in the Attic" by V.C. Andrews at least 10 times since I read it for the first time in 5th grade; I think I was too young to read it then. Other than that I do not read books more than one time. I love to read and when I have the summers off (I teach) I ready no less than 20 books during the summer. When I was at the beach this summer I read a book everyday. Favorite authors and series include: James Patterson, Nicholas Spark, Patricia Cornwell, Mary Higgins Clark, Twilight series, Sookie Stackhouse series, Mitch Album and the Harry Potter series. I have also started reading "running" books such as Run Like a Mother.

If you could travel anywhere, where would it be?
My bucket list of places to travel to is LONG! I want to see all 50 states and travel Europe before I die. BUT if you made me pick one place it would be Hawaii. I have in my head that Hawaii is going to be some magical island where I will be laying in the sun getting a golden tan, drinking fruity drinks, eating fresh fruit and swimming with sea turtles. Don't ruin my fantasy!

If you could have a TV show on the Food Network, what would it be?
I don't cook at all : ( and I don't think I can name one show on Food Network. Don't get me wrong I can cook basic foods but I rarely cook. Most nights it is just me and Parker at home since Scott works out of town so we spend a lot of nights eating frozen meals. Mom of the year I know! I am working on it I promise.

What was the best meal you ever had?
I know I have walked away from a lot of places saying "That is the best meal I have ever had" but for some reason right now I am at a loss! Hands down good Mexican is always a BEST meal. I am lucky to have a great Mexican restaurant where we live. The one meal that sticks out in my head at this moment is an anniversary dinner at The Melting Pot. Not sure if the food was the great or just the night itself; or the ending the meal elbow deep in a bowl of melted chocolate.

Who has been the greatest influence on your love for food and learning to cook?
Learning to cook?? Well lets say I got my lack of cooking honest. My mom is a great cook and is capable of cooking anything in the world but we just don't like to do it. My love for food probably comes from my husband. When we met I was PICKY. If you think what I eat now is bad you would not believe how horrible I ate 10 years ago. Scott has done a great job of introducing me to new foods and encouraging me to try different foods.

I am going to torture... umm tag the following people:
Am I Crazy of Just Crazy (one of my real life friends; Crystal)

Hope you had fun getting to know me better!
