Three Question Thursday: Round 6


Good morning!

I try to never wish away my days…but I am totally workin’ for the weekend at this point! I don’t even have any plans – well actually, I have some amazing plans for Sunday afternoon – but other than that, I don’t really have anything on the agenda for the weekend…I just want it to get here. Now! :)

So I need to share…this past weekend I finally got new cookie cutters, so last night after my run I created a little duck army out of sugar cookies!! Aren’t they sweet? I seriously like, wanted to cuddle with them or something…




I also made some veeeery bright flowers…in the dark evening light, they were semi-blinding!


For breakfast this morning I was tempted – I mean REALLY tempted – to break up a cookie on top of my oatmeal for a special topper. Buuuuut I didn’t…if I’m going to have a cookie, I’m going to enjoy it all by itself…savoring every sweet and delicious bite…mmm…

SO – instead I had Apricot Almond Oatmeal!


In the mix:

  • 1/2 cup each of oats, skim milk and water
  • splash of almond extract & cinnamon
  • 1 medium banana
  • ~2 T almonds
  • 4 chopped apricots
  • drizzle of sugar-free syrup



This is another winning combo – the dried apricots are such a fab addition to the oatmeal…I just loved this bowl!!


I also had coffee in my Frozen 5K mug…which I didn’t even know I had until I found it in the cupboard today! Sweet!



For lunch I packed another sweet and savory delight: Mixed Greens Salad with Roasted Vegetables, Cheese & Strawberries!


I love that punch of sweetness from the strawberries, mixed in with the savory salad dressing and roasted vegetables. Yummy!!




It’s Three Question Thursday time, people!!! Here they are…and here’s my challenge: if you’ve been reading but never commented – do it today! Let’s hear from you! :)

1. If you could play one professional sport, what would it be?

2. Would you rather be stranded on a desert island alone, or with someone you can’t stand?

3.  If could teach something, what would you teach?


My answers:

1. I think I’d want to be a professional diver. I feel like that is such a unique and beautiful talent to be able to twist and tumble in the air like that. Plus, those people just seem fearless…

2. I think…I’d rather be alone! I have very little patience…eek!

3. I would teach cooking and baking classes! :D Gosh that’d be so amazing…


Have a FAB Thursday everyone!

    2. Stranded by myself. No question. i get really irritated. that i might do something i’ll regret.

    3. could i coach? i’d love to coach high school girls’ volleyball.

  2. Rachel 06.11.2009

    Yaaay 3 question Thursday :)

    1. This is hard but I think soccer even though I’m completely terrible at it. Both my brothers played and I just love the sport.

    2. I think I’d have to have someone with me even if I didn’t like them. I find just about anyone can be tollerable or can change.

    3. I’m with you on cooking classes…or English because I just love reading and writing.

  3. Lauren 06.11.2009

    Awww, so ironic. I am eating apricot oatmeal this very moment. Totally agree, love love love the dried apricots!

    And on to 3 question Thursday!

    1. Hmmm, I think I would be a professional tennis player. Those chics are crazy in shape and the uniforms are definitely cute!

    2. Alone, but I guess that could only go so far. I would start to not be able to stand myself after awhile.

    3. I would love to teach an exercise class or healthy cooking class. I actually want to look into this some day. It’s on my bucket list!

    Have a lovely day dear!

  4. Whit 06.11.2009

    1. If you could play one professional sport, what would it be?

    I’d like to think tennis. I suck at tennis, but I want me some tennis arms!

    2. Would you rather be stranded on a desert island alone, or with someone you can’t stand?

    Alone. I could improvise ok, and I am more of a loner anyway. I’d way rather be by myself than with someone I couldn’t stand.

    3. If could teach something, what would you teach?

    I think cooking too, but I love history as well.

    Yay, fun post!

  5. Alison 06.11.2009

    1. If you could play one professional sport, what would it be?

    Definitely gymnastics. I like ice skating too.

    2. Would you rather be stranded on a desert island alone, or with someone you can’t stand?

    Even though I’m a loner, probably with someone. It’d be nice to have someone to direct my frustrations at. They probably would really hate me.

    3. If could teach something, what would you teach?

    I love history; I would enjoy being a history teacher. English too.

  6. Krystal 06.11.2009

    Your cookies are adorable! I love how fancy the frosting looks! Would you be willing to post your cookie and frosting recipe- I’m always looking for a new one to try!


  7. Kayla 06.11.2009

    1. Does IRL count? I’d want to be a racecar driver :)
    2. Alone. People can be way too annoying and I’d probably end up having thoughts of doing away with them ;)
    3. Baking

  8. Lauren A. 06.11.2009

    my responses:
    1. does dancing count as a professional sport? if so, i’d love to be a back up dancer :-). otherwise i think i’d like to be a soccer player.
    2. alone, for sure.
    3. i would teach young kids how to be active and eat well balanced meals in effort to help prevent them from becoming overweight and unhealthy.

    my bf’s responses:
    1. basketball
    2. oh yeah, alone, easy. hmmm, actually someone i can’t stand because i would need interaction.
    3. 3rd grade.

    thanks for facilitating our morning conversation over oatmeal! it was fun!

  9. lowandbhold 06.11.2009

    New commenter here! I’m from Oklahoma, so I feel ya on the pigs and corn (from yesterday’s post) except here it’s cows and wheat! Those cookies look amazing, you’ve got skillz!

    1. I’d be a football player. I loooove football but if someone tackled me, I’d cry.
    2. I’d say with someone I can’t stand because I’d need someone to help me build a raft. Maybe we could work out our differences!
    3. Poetry… not that you can really teach poetry but I’d love to be in that environment again but not get graded.

  10. Amber 06.11.2009

    Those duck cookies are SO SO cute!!!

    1. I’d want to be a hockey player.

    2. I’d rather be with someone then all alone!

    3. I’d love to be able to teach yoga and aerobics!!

  11. Creighton 06.11.2009

    1. soccer
    2. human interaction is key, so I’d have plenty of time to learn to be friends with my island mate
    3. art

  12. Ben 06.11.2009

    1) I would definitely be a professional golfer. You get to spend your days outside, there’s always good, respectful competition and you get to travel. Plus, a lot of people don’t realize it, but golf is a very strategic and mentally challenging game.
    2) Tough one, but I’d think alone would be the way to go. I’d finally have time to meditate and discover the meaning of life without distraction. HA
    3) This is another tough one. If I could combine religion, philosophy and composition into one class, I’d teach that.

  13. Niki 06.11.2009

    Those cookies are awesome! How did you get your frosting to look so neat??

    1. Would love to be a prof. soccer player since I play it now but more than anything would LOVE LOVE LOVE to be a prof. wakeboarder!!

    2. I would rather be with someone I can’t stand. I figure with time you will learn to like eachother!!

    3. Would love to be a soccer coach or teach baking classes!!

    Such fun questions!

  14. Tracy 06.11.2009

    1. Tennis player

    2. I think I’d like to be alone, too. Although you would probably end up liking a person you couldn’t stand before.

    3. I’d like to teach nutrition and the merits of a healthy diet to young kids.

  15. (1) I would be a professional figure skater because I was never quite good enough as a kid :)

    (2) Alone. Alone. Alone. I’m easily entertained.

    (3) I think I would teach something crazy – like skydiving, rappelling, kayaking – some adventure sport-ish. It would be awesome!

  16. mshort 06.11.2009

    Found you about a week ago, and I love your blog :) This is my first response too!

    Oh my gosh… Sugar cookies are my favorite and yours look so incredibly scrumptious! You’ll have to tell us how good they taste now ;) Your breakfast looks quite tasty too. Jealous!

    1- Ice skating! It’s so elegant and requires a lot of strength, flexibility, and stamina.

    2- Be alone… If it was someone I couldn’t stand, I wouldn’t be nice and they’d probably kill themselves!

    3- Teach voice lessons, choir, or English.

  18. Pearl 06.11.2009

    oh my gosh! those cookies are SO adorable!

  19. AmyLou 06.11.2009

    Okay, your cookies are just too cute! You do a great job with the frosting! What’s your technique?

    1. I’d totally be a professional gymnast. It’d be so cool just to break out a backflip whenever I wanted! ;) Plus, they have some awesome legs.

    2. I’d be with someone I couldn’t stand. I’d need to be put in a straight jacket if I was all by myself.

    3. I’d like to teach reading, I guess. I love books. So probably more of a book club leader than teacher. I’m not big on patience, so I wouldn’t be a very good teacher!

  20. Sarah 06.11.2009

    What is your frosting recipe? Will you please share? Your frosting looks awesome!

  21. Holly 06.11.2009

    Oh my goodness, girl! You need to start a bakery! I’m with the others…can you post your frosting recipe? And maybe do a post on how to get them to look awesome? Sugar cookies are my favorite cookies to make….a lot more work, but oh so worth it.

    1. Hmmm, I have never thought about that! Probably a football player. They get 5 months off a year (I know they practice during that time, but I’m sure it’s less stressful), plus I LOVE football. :-)

    2. With an annoying person! I don’t mind being alone, but couldn’t stand it for, say, eternity. I can always tell ’em to shut up, too.

    3. I actually used to teach 3rd grade! But if I could teach now? Probably cooking or baking – but I’d have to be better at it, I guess.

  22. I totally want to hire you to make me duckie cookies in about 8 weeks… cool?

    1. Beach volleyball

    2. Alone

    3. Spanish… oh, I already do that!

  23. Lauren 06.11.2009

    Hi Kristin, those cookies are adorable! What recipe do you use for the icing?

  24. Anne K. 06.11.2009

    Oh my goodness, those cookies are soo adorable! You’re so talented.

    1) I think Tennis would be really fun!

    2) This is kinda tough. I think I’d rather be alone.

    3) Fitness! I guess that’s why I want to be a personal trainer :D

  25. Amanda 06.11.2009

    1. Golf-I’m learning to play and I really enjoy all of the cute “accessories” that make me LOOK like a golfer!

    2. Definitely alone, if I could have some books or mags or music…..or a cell phone. :)

    3. I actually do teach 4th grade right now. I would LOVE to go back and get another Master’s in Reading, so that I could focus on the part of the job that I feel is most important-teaching reading.

  26. ratzx31 06.11.2009

    1. If you could play one professional sport, what would it be?


    2. Would you rather be stranded on a desert island alone, or with someone you can’t stand?

    with someone so at least i would be occupied trying to rid myself of that person! gives me something to do!

    3. If could teach something, what would you teach?

    I am teaching, so i guess i would still continue teaching – music! playing an instrument… or anything pertaining to music.

    btw, love your bakes… esp the duckies!!! totally awesome, love your blog too!!! am new to your blog but i think you are doing a great job! thanks! and the 3 questions are real fun!!! :P

  27. aprillove1625 06.11.2009

    I loove frosted sugar cookies and those are too cute!

    1. A gymnast! They have awesome bodies and are strong! Or a soccer player, I played for many years growing up and love to play.
    2. I’d be with someone I can’t stand. I’d just have to suck it up and make
    3. Hmmm…what would I teach? I’m not too fond of kids. I guess zoology or biology as I’m totally boring and find these subjects interesting.

  28. Joe 06.11.2009


    I just to the grocery and got that Greek yogurt. I sliced up some strawberries and bought the vanilla flavor. HOLY CRAP you were so right about the yogurt — EXTREMELY creamy and no-so-sweet. I love it!

  29. Amanda 06.11.2009

    Those cookies are so cute!!! They look so yummy too!

    1. I would probably swim. I used to swim in the past and loved it. I love flying through the water like a fish…not to mention that its a great workout!

    2. I think i would want to be with someone I can’t stand so I could occupy my mind with ways to off them!! Or maybe we could become at least tolerant of eachother!

    3. I already teach at my job…which is Pedi ICU…I love that so I would keep teaching that

  30. RunningWithin 06.11.2009

    1. If you could play one professional sport, what would it be?

    Running or Ice Skating, running ‘cuz I love it, Ice Skating cuz the sparkly outfits are so pretty : )

    2. Would you rather be stranded on a desert island alone, or with someone you can’t stand?

    Alone, I’m a loner anyway. Or a guy I can’t stand and then we can start to get along and fall madly in love with eachother…

    3. If could teach something, what would you teach?

    English Literature in college, which hopefully I will be doing someday.

  31. Lindsey Mots 06.11.2009

    3. Being a home ec teacher would be cool

  33. Lauren 06.11.2009

    1. I’d be a professional volleyball player. I LOVE volleyball..and preferably beach volleyball.

    Hi Kristin!

    I just spent my entire morning reading through your blog. It is just so fresh and fun.

    1. I love to play tennis even if I’m not that good so I’d pick tennis. I’d also want to be a pro figure skater. So pretty and feminine yet strong.

    2. This is a tough one. Hmmm, I’d rather be alone. I’d just have to find ways to keep me entertained. :D

    3. I’d probably teach basic Japanese and Filipino.

    I just started my own blog and would like to ask if you would mind if I added you to my blog list? Thank you!

  36. Beth 06.12.2009
