Thinking Out Loud in Survey Form

favorite foods


Both Michele and Amanda tagged me to complete the latest survey going around so I figured today would be a good day to answer a bunch of random questions.


Four Names People Call Me Other Than My Real Name:

1. Mommy

2. Meemo  – My mother always called me this growing up and my friend Lauren thought it was funny so she called me Memo as well.

To get back at Lauren I would refer to her as Lou Lou Bell since that was what her mom would write on her lunch bag.

3. Doodles – My nickname in high school which literally stuck so well that no one called me Meredith. I still turn around if I hear anyone say Doodles.

We think I got the name Doodles because I was eating Dipsy Doodles, not because I was doodling. I did a lot of doodling too though in my notebooks so that would make sense as well.

4. I never liked my name by the way.


I always wanted my name to be Rebecca. Feel free to call me Rebecca. Not Becky or Becca. Rebecca. It would make me happy.

Four Jobs I’ve Had:

1. Promotion Coordinator for a promotions firm which handles sweepstakes, contests and instant win games.

I am more than experienced when it comes to running these blog giveaways and sweepstakes!

2. Sales Associate At Saks spent more than I made.

3. Office Manager/Event Coordinator for a company in the event planning industry.

4. Did you know I had my own cookie business for a bit?

Yeah, I used to bake and sell lots of cookies and dessert platters.


Of course I would still bake up an order or two if asked but I stopped doing it on a regular basis became it became super time consuming and rather draining.

Four Movies I Have Watched More Than Once:

1. The Parent Trap (the original)

2. National Lampoon’s Vacation

3. Troop Beverly Hills

4. Can’t Buy Me Love


Four Books I Would Recommend:

I have read so many books over the years that it is hard to remember them all yet certain titles stick out in my mind worth recommending.

1. The Terrible And Wonderful Reasons Why I Run Long Distances- The Oatmeal

2. This Is How It Happened (Not A Love Story) – Jo Barrett

3. The Other Boleyn Girl – Phillipa Gregory

4. The Queen’s Fool – Phillipa Gregory


Four Places I Have Lived:

1. Bellmore, New York

2. Port Washington, New York

3. Commack, New York

4. Dix Hills, New York


Four Places I Have Been:

1. Seymour, Indiana– my first ever business trip when I was a promotion coordinator.

2. Hershey Parkin 2012 for my first Half Marathon!

Hershey Park Half medal

3. San Diego, CA – I never wanted to come home.

4. Chicago, Il – I really need to get back there for the pizza.


Four Places I Would Rather Be Right Now:

1. Sitting in a robe sipping cucumber water while waiting for a massage.

2. Shopping in the city at Bloomingdales followed by Saks Fifth Avenue with someone else’s credit card

3. Having dessert at The Cheesecake Factory.

4. Eating warm chocolate chip cookies dipped in a glass of milk.


Four Things I Don’t Eat:

1. Cottage Cheese– gross.

2. Meat/Poultry– You know I am a vegetarian, right?

3. Tunafish/Egg salad– Just no. Never!

4. Soda I never liked it. I must have tried it as a little kid and made the decision it was not for me and never tried it again.


Four Of My Favorite Foods:

You can’t expect me to stop at four, can you?!

Four Things I Am Looking Forward To This Year:

Excuse me while I get all corny but I kinda look forward to every day with the expectation of something fabulous happening. You just never know what a day will bring.

Four Things I’m Saying:

1. Uh huh

2. I’m hungry

3. Stop bouncing that ball

4. Do your homework, take a shower, go to bed


This was so fun to complete! Be sure to check out what everyone else is thinking about today…


Is it snowing where you live? Anyone up in the Buffalo area?

Do you like your name?

Would you be able to narrow down your favorite foods to only four?! What are they?










Author: The Cookie ChRUNicles

Hi! I'm Meredith. Join me while I run and cook my way through single motherhood. It is always an adventure trying to teach my 12 year old son the benefits of an active lifestyle combined with healthy eating while of course, still leaving room for dessert.

  1. I definitely could not narrow my foods down to 4 – there are way too many. Maybe if I categorized them and then was allowed 4 in each category. ha. Dessert would still be tricky! And cookie business? That is awesome!

    Woke up to a dusting of snow this morning!

  2. Is it snowing where you live?
    1. It is not snowing yet here in Northeast PA, but bitter cold. (For the record I like snow, only if I can stay home!)
    Do you like your name?
    2. No I do not like my name!!!

    Would you be able to narrow down your favorite foods to only four?! What are they?
    3. Four favorites: Pizza, Apples, Cheese, Edamame.
    Enjoy your day, it is supposed to warm up a little!!!!

  3. Thanks for the shout out memo! It was fun to wake up to that memory!

    Fav foods-
    Ice cream for sure
    Love French fries ( big weakness)
    Any dessert that is chocolately ( is that a word? lol) melted and decadent!!

    Can I place an order for one of your delicious dessert creations?

    Troop Beverly Hills and parent trap- memories from our childhood.
    You know I am a life long lover of the wizard of oz!

  4. I wanted my name to be Crystal when I was younger — but I have no idea why 😯 I’m fine with Amanda, but no one really calls me that anyways. People online usually call me Spoons, and people in RL call me A. If someone I know well calls me Amanda, it usually means I’m in trouble :lol:And if it’s my parents? Ooooo I know it’s gonna be bad.

  5. It does not snow down here in California. I am perfectly ok with that. I am not fond of the cold weather 🙂
    I never liked my name when I was younger, but now I am indifferent towards it.

  6. I hate all those “get to know you” games where you have to say your favorite food, but it’s just impossible to narrow it down. Even narrowing it down to 4 is hard, but if I HAD to, I would probably say pizza, grapes, froyo, and peanut butter.

  7. Love a good survey! You can learn such random facts about people 🙂
    I actually do love my name now, but I didn’t like it growing up…I tried to change it to Lisa..haha.

  8. Try having a name like Arman. I should have kept all my starbucks cups from my trip-
    ‘Apple’ ‘Almond’ ‘Ayhorn’ ‘ACORN’ WTF

    All the foods you dislike are my favourites- ironically, cottage cheese was something I ate a tonne of in NYC because they have this amazing brand, Daisys- so salty so good.

  9. I’ve always thought my name was too plain – in high school spanish class we were supposed to pick a “spanish”name – for 2 years I was Raquel and loved it!!!
    I’m with you on not like cottage cheese. I do love tuna fish and egg salad though.
    And, The Facts of Life was one of my all time favorite shows the summer my parents got a divorce (before 9th grade for me) – I wanted to go to a girls school like that!!!

  10. Ah, I remember Troop Beverly Hills! Love that movie! And I enjoy ALL of the National Lampoon’s Vacation movies. I have the Christmas Vacation movie listed as one of my own 4 movies I’ve seen more than once on the survey on my blog now in fact. Also…I’m now craving chocolate chip cookies dipped in milk.
