My Life Is Full Of Butterflies!

Hey My BEEA-U-TI-FUL Butterflies! 😀

Both Savannah and Alex awarded me with this.

I am so touched. For this, I need to answer the following questions:

Name your favorite color:

Anything Fall — green, red, brown, orange, warm pinks, gold, maroon, emerald, etc! Maybe it’s because they go with my skin tone and I know they look good on me. Whenever I go shopping, I always gravitate towards those colors.

What whizzes you off:

When people are mean. Or drive crazy — ugggh, that drives me crazy.

Name your favorite dessert:

Hmmmm, probably these. They are definitely one of my favorites.

Best feature:

I love my smile. I love my eyes. I love my hair. I love how the sun naturally brings out the red in my hair.

Your favorite pet:

ChipHe is my best friend. He is there and will always listen — no matter what. He follows me everywhere (if I go downstairs without him, he’ll roam the house and cry and cry until he finds me). He takes over my pillow — I mean sleeps with me, kneads me (literally — like a kitten does to their mother when their suckling — that motion, Chip does on me), and he plays FETCH! He demands a lot of attention (aka, he will stand by our island in the kitchen and CRY until we get him a new bowl of ice with a little water drizzled on top; haha, I’m not kidding). I love him so much. You could say I’m a bit of a cat lover. 🙂

Your biggest fear: 

Falling back into my old restricting habits. I NEVER want that to happen again — it just led to unhappiness and sorrow. I know that as I keep focusing on listening on my body, I can stand strong against that fear.

Guilty pleasure:

Hehe, one of these. They don’t give me any guilt since they are so good for you, but they sure taste like they would! And to clarify, if I eat something that isn’t so good for me, I’m not going to feel GUILTY about it. I will just accept and move forward. Eating something not as good for me won’t kill me. It’s part of life. If I balance out the rest of my day, I’ll be fine.

When you’re upset you:

Run it off. Read my scriptures. Go bake something. Play Sudoku. Go read some blogs.

What is perfection:

Balance. Perfection is something I tried to achieve — perfect in how I ate, when I ate, how much I ate; but now I just listen to my body and move forward accordingly.

Well, they didn’t say HOW many I had to tag, so here I go!!

Your Food Smiles

YOU GUYS ARE THE BUTTERFLIES IN MY LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you for always being there for me and helping me along throughout my journey! 🙂 And thank you to my friends and family — YOU ARE MY BUTTERFLIES TOO!

Do you gravitate towards certain colors? I have a TON of red, green, and brown in my wardrobe.

What would you say is your favorite features about yourself? One thing I love about all of you guys is how supporting you are. Thank you for everything! 😀

I am working on two recipes right now: Vegan Oatmeal Pancakes and A Chocolate Lover’s Nut Butter. Which one would you like first? I can’t get enough of either!


P.S. Happy Labor Day!

  1. Thanks for tagginf me Kat, you are such a sweetheart! 🙂 I love you guilty pleasures 🙂 And your idea of perfection!
    My favorite feature is probably my positive attitude 🙂 Look-wise it would be my smile or my legs, I am not sure 🙂
    A Chocolate Lover’s Nut Butter? Are you serious? Post the recipe now!! :)))

  2. That is so great Kat! What a nice surprise to be tagged in this post 🙂 Thank you!

    My favorite feature about myself is the fact that I’m very quick to discover my flaws– If in the wrong, I usually notice shortly after so I’m able to apologize. Many people are just so naive they don’t even realize when they messed up

  3. Thanks for the tag girl 🙂
    I love the name Chip- like a chocolate chip! I might have to copy that for my future dog !! 🙂
    I am so happy you are finding YOUR balance in life! That is what it is all about! We are all so different, and Im so glad you are learning to trust your body! ❤
    What I like most about myself is my long legs and my eyes!
    Weee, cant chose between those two recipes! Both of them sounds too good!

  4. awww thanks for the tag! I gravitate towards certain colors for sure… my closet is full of brown, blue, green, purple, and earthy colors, I don’t look good in bright oranges, reds, yellows or pinks. And I want to see both those recipes, but I’ve been in a pancake mood lately so I’d have to say the pancakes!

  5. My favorite colors are orange, green, and yellow, but my wardrobe gravitates towards the colors that you posted as your favorite. Fall colors look really good on me (or at least i think so!). I have to agree that your banana chocolate brownies are DELICIOUS!

    I want to see the pancake recipe!

  6. Kath I love you I dooo! (creepy new blogger admiration haha). loved your survey! And those colours you picked would all complement your skintone/hair really well.
    I’ve a load of dark red clothes but my workout tops are mainly neon colours ;p

  7. Ahh thanks so much for the tag sugar! LOVE the survey! you are adorable and LOVED YOUR ANSWERS! the bible is soo good for trivial times! actually ,every time! love you girl!

  8. Aww thanks for tagging me! I have lots of blue and green in my closet because they’re my favorites but I have other colors too. I SHOULD have more purple because it’s my school color but I just don’t like it that much. The vegan oatmeal pancakes sound good!

  9. I’m glad that you’ve gotten so good at being honest with your personal struggles and being in tune with your body — your writing and perspectives always seem very sincere. 🙂

    (And if I had to pick one thing I like about myself, then it’d be my kick-ass attitude — haha!)

  10. Oh Kat, you are so sweet! I am so glad you opened up in this post, and I seriously LOVE that the first thing you said in response to what is perfection is BALANCE. That is so damn true. Props to you girl.

  11. Now that is an incredible list of bloggers!!!

    I love the colour red and I too appreciate autumn colours…Mostly because my soul is so warmed by autumn….Just the thought of it makes me squeal in anticipation!

    I want to see those vegan oatmeal pancakes!!!

  12. Your cat sounds so sweet!! Mine is clingy too, it’s a problem because I feel sooo bad leaving the house because I know she’ll sit at the door for a long time and cry. Awww.

  13. I love fall colors too, this is my favorite time of the year! 🙂 and both recipes sound delicious, i can’t wait to see them! and talk about dedication, that tagging must of taking you forevahh!
