ABOUT ME | Love, Hate, Tag!

love hate tag

This was not the original blog post planned for today, but I was nominated by Ryane from Ryane Zamora Beauty to participate in Love, Hate, Tag!

I already have a few loves/hates listed on my about me page, but I might as well give you all a few more :)

The rules to Love, Hate, Tag are simple: the person “tagged” must share 10 things they love, 10 things they hate, and then nominate up to 10 other bloggers to do the same! It’s a great way to get to know others (and yourself actually).

As I sat down to write this list, I was shocked at how hard it was to get started… then I was even more shocked with how my list grew and grew!

Finally I narrowed it down to 10 loves and 10 hates :) and tagged a few bloggers I’m intrigued to find out more about!


  1. Carbs – Bread, pasta, chips, crackers…. you name it, I love it!
  2. A good sweat – It sounds odd, but nothing makes me happier than sweating! I’m from Florida, so I’m just used to always being hot. Thank goodness I use a strong deodorant ;)
  3. Modern Family – My whole family watches it and about a third of our conversations involve Modern Family quotes or references. Cam’s hysterical remarks always make me bust out in laughter.
  4. My day planner – I love well planned days. I may not be the most spontaneous person, but I do know how to maximize every day! (On that note, I’m looking for a new one that is small enough to fit in my purse, any suggestions?)
  5. Plants – As you saw from a previous blog I love growing things! My basil is in full bloom now and I just planted rosemary :)
  6. A good book – As you can see, I read a lot! The moment I find a great book I will devour it in two days.
  7. Red wine – If I’ve had a rough day, a glass of cabernet with the boyfriend is the perfect way to relax.
  8. Lilly Pulitzer dresses – A bright colored dress always makes me feel instantly happy!
  9. A crisp apple – I’m banking on an apple a day keeping the doctor away.
  10. Jet skiing – I’m a Florida girl, I need my water sports :)


  1. Stubbed toes – It may be the smallest of hits into the corner of a wall but it feels as if you have been shot!
  2. Breaking an egg yolk – All I want is a perfectly cooked, over-easy egg and then I have an epic fail of a flip…. I hate cooked yolk :/
  3. Being late – It’s rude to everyone involved… get your butt moving a few minutes earlier, people!
  4. Tummy aches – I feel like this is a given.
  5. Dropping my phone – There is a moment of panic where I just KNOW it shattered.
  6. Getting things stuck between your teeth – Especially when you don’t have floss handy.
  7. Driving – It stresses me out beyond belief and my fear of parking sends me over the edge!
  8. Nail biters – The boyfriend sometimes does this and it drives me up a wall.
  9. Winter – This is a funny “hate” since I voluntarily moved from Florida to the winter arctic known as DC. Whoops!
  10. The dark – Yes… I’m scared of the dark still :(


Now it’s your turn! I nominate the following eight people to partake in Love, Hate, Tag!

Jessica from Blonde of Carbs

Amanda from I Write Things

Alexis from Simple & Lovely

Tatum from Tatum Writes

Karen from Confetti and Curves

    I’m relatively convinced I could live on carbs…. especially everything bagels. I totally loathe humidity… crisp, clear air is more my speed. Hope you had a fabulous Wednesday! : )

    I love carbs too; my weakness. Lol. I used to watch modern family and loved it so much but I now have like 2-3 seasons to catch up on and I’m being lazy about it. Just did this tag on my blog and its so much fun, would appreciate it if you would check it out. :)

        Eek! Monsoons :( That’s no good at all! Hopefully Cam will bring a smile to your face as well :)

    If you carry a slightly larger purse, I recommend the Passion Planner (www.passionplanner.com). There is a small version of it that I found fits in mine. If your planner is one of the 10 things you could narrow down your loves to, I think you’ll like this one.

      I’ve never heard of Passion Planner before, these are soon cool! Thank you for sharing :) The smaller one would fit perfectly in my purse!

      Hahaha I’m glad someone else understands the sadness of a broken yoke in the morning. Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

    Cooked yolk is the WORST. Nothing is worse than cutting into a poached egg and finding a cooked center. This happened to me this weekend and clearly I’m still upset about it.
