11 Questions

by Brittany on July 21, 2011

Dinner last night was quick & painless.Roasted potato, Brussels Sprouts, and 1/2 a yellow onion tossed in olive oil, salt and pepper beneath a grilled salmon burger. Delicioso!

This morning I woke up and had two slices of brown rice toast, smeared with Justin’s Maple almond butter, and a 1/2 of banana.

along with four slices of turkey bacon, and a dinosaur 1/2 of a banana smeared with sunflower seed butter.


Muchos gracias to Emily from GlitzGlamGranola for tagging me with the Amazing Blogger Award! Congratulations to all of you as well because with this award, I’m responsible for answering 11 questions about me, myself & I. You lucky readers, you ;)

1. My favorite cartoon character(s) is/are: I’m going to have to go with Boobahs. I don’t really understand their purpose or exactly what breed of creature they are, but I know that they can steal my attention away for hours on end.Source

If you do not know what a Boobah is, please watch this informative video.

2. My favorite thing(s) to photograph is/are: Scenery and beautiful landscapes

3. My favorite thing to cook: Cake! I have yet to conquer a homemade cake on the blog (The only two I’ve made from scratch were created pre-blog existence) however, I plan on making another in the near future. I love playing Cake Boss because there’s just something special about knowing that you created and decorated something from scratch.This is the cake I made for Will’s 21st birthday :)

4. My favorite way to exercise: I’m gonna have to go with ZUMBA. I haven’t been able to find a good Zumba location in Miami (go figure..) , but as soon as I return to Orlando I plan on picking up my classes again 2-3 times a week.Source

5. My favorite movie: I’m not much of a movie person, but if I had to pick one it would probably be Crash or The Ugly Truth– (It’s not sad at all that I had to look at my Facebook page to see what movies I consider my favorites…) :(

Source & Source

6. My favorite article of clothing: Oof this is a toughie! I just got a new pair of barely boot jeans from Express so I’ll go with those. I love these jeans because they aren’t exactly skinny, but they aren’t bigger like a boot cut. They’re jussssttt right :)


…And if it counts as an article of clothing… my pink Snuggie :)


7. My favorite breakfast: As of now, my vegan wheat-free pancake :D

8. My favorite book I’ve read lately:


9. My favorite place to be:

In this boy’s arms:

..although Paris would be nice too ;) Source

10. My favorite celebrity couple: I don’t think I have one– I really don’t keep up with celebrity news too much. :X

So….. Barbie & Ken?Source

11. My favorite TV show: Big Brother!! SO glad that it’s back! (Not that I’ve watched this season at all… :( )Source

Tag! You’re It:

Have an awesome day! I’ll see you all later with a heart-to-heart post this afternoon :)

I read the kite runner and loved it! It’s so sad, but so emotionally poignant. Glad to see you liked 1000 Splendid Suns!


ittybitsofbalance July 21, 2011 at 6:21 am

If you liked Kite Runner then you would LOVE A Thousand Splendid Suns! I read both, but liked the former much more :D


Sweet and Savvy July 21, 2011 at 10:45 am

Awesome! I’ll have to check it ouT!


Emma July 21, 2011 at 7:49 am

Ooh, brussels sprouts! People think I’m crazy for loving them, but they are my favorite veggie!

Boobahs look like the distant cousins of the Teletubbies.


ittybitsofbalance July 21, 2011 at 11:46 am

They are probably one of my favorite vegetables :) (Brussels sprouts, not the Boobahs…)


jayme@runnernspice.com July 21, 2011 at 7:54 am

I loved Crash! It’s been a favourite of mine for a while too. As for Zumba – I totally need to jump on that bandwagon. Everyone seems to love it; I’ve never tried it before!


ittybitsofbalance July 21, 2011 at 11:45 am

You need to try Zumba! It’s such a great work out, and you don’t even feel like you’re exercising!


Jessica @ Sushi and Sit-Ups July 21, 2011 at 8:33 am

That cake looks awesome! You’ll have to do a blog post on cake decorating! :)


ittybitsofbalance July 21, 2011 at 11:38 am

What a great idea! Thanks :D


Claire @ Live & Love to Eat July 21, 2011 at 8:35 am

Lol @ Barbie and Ken!


In Sweetness and In Health July 21, 2011 at 8:47 am

Thank you so much for the tag!!!!! I’ve already taken it…but I’ll link to it again on my post today :). I totally would have tagged you in it if I had found your blog then. Love you!


ittybitsofbalance July 21, 2011 at 11:39 am

Of course! And no worries :) I’m gonna have to go check out your 11 questions now


Lisa @ Healthful Sense July 21, 2011 at 9:53 am

I have yet to try the vegan pancake idea but it looks fab!! I would so love to be in Paris right now too :) In my man’s arms in Paris hehe :)
In case you didn’t see on my blog I will put some good uses of coconut butter here for ya:
Spread on toast, muffins or pancakes. Use as an icing on cakes or pies. Use in place of butter in recipes. Use in homemade bars or granola.
Good luck with your coconut butter experimentation :) Love to you !!


ittybitsofbalance July 21, 2011 at 11:42 am

Oooo! No I didn’t see it on your blog but I’m definitely going to have to go back now and check it out :)
Using on pancakes sounds like a great idea– I’m going to have to try it on my vegan wheat free pancakes

Thanks a lot– you’re the best


aflourishingfoodie July 21, 2011 at 10:05 am

Last nights dinner looks yummy.

I love learning more about you!


ittybitsofbalance July 21, 2011 at 11:44 am

Thank you :)


ihearteggs July 21, 2011 at 11:08 am

Oh barbie and Ken! GREAT response!


healthycollegegirl July 21, 2011 at 11:37 am

cake is probably the greatest thing to cook in the world :)


Vanessa July 21, 2011 at 11:40 am

Crash is one of my favorite movies too! BUT, more importantly I am beyond thrilled you threw in some Snuggie lovin’!!!!!! I’ve been obsessed with my cheetah print one for a couple of years now. Seriously, the best “as seen on TV” product ever :)


ittybitsofbalance July 21, 2011 at 11:44 am

You have a cheetah one!? haha!
My snuggie is starting to wear and tear because I use it so much lol :P


Alexa @ Simple Eats July 21, 2011 at 12:20 pm

I want to try Zumba! Cake is definitely one of my faves, too! :)


Jess (In My Healthy Opinion) July 21, 2011 at 12:49 pm

The Boobahs look like gum drops! haha. Thank you for nominating me!!! I actually already did this quiz (and I think at least most of the Q’s are the same)! Here’s the link: http://inmyhealthyopinion.com/2011/07/09/just-facts/


ittybitsofbalance July 22, 2011 at 5:26 am

No problem! I’m going to check yours out now :D


Liz @ Something To Chew On July 21, 2011 at 12:51 pm

Barbie and Ken are the BEST celebrity couple! Love it!

I need to get a Snuggie. I’ve wanted one for so long…

And I looooove Zumba too! My work schedule has stopped me from getting to class lately :( but it’s so fun!


ittybitsofbalance July 22, 2011 at 5:25 am

You don’ have one!? Oh man! You need one! It will change your life ;)


glitzglamgranola July 21, 2011 at 1:06 pm

Ok you have some serious cake decorating skills!! I look forward to seeing more of your creations! And I love zumba too! I haven’t found a place in SF yet either but hopefully we’ll both find one soon! And oh I like those jeans- I’m going to have to keep an eye out for them!


Natalie @ cinnamon bums July 22, 2011 at 2:49 am

oh my goodness, you and your boyfriend are too cute! i loved reading this and learning more about you, btw! your breakfast is literally my favorite breakfast ever!!

ittybitsofbalance July 22, 2011 at 5:24 am

Aw thanks a lot! :) You should definitely get on the zumba train soon!


Lindsay Loves Veggies July 23, 2011 at 1:57 am

Snuggies rule!!! I have a leopard print Snuggie that I couldn’t live without!


Molly July 24, 2011 at 10:43 pm

I loved A Thousand Splendid Suns! Such a good book. I loved The Kite Runner as well.
