Ten on Tuesday #14!

So, I've been slacking in the blog department lately ... sorry about that friends.  My absence is partly due to the fact that the weather was so beautiful last week that I spent every second that I could outdoors, soaking up the sun and doing lots of yardwork and partly due to the fact that I've had a steady stream of clients lately that have been taking up all my time that hasn't been spent in the out of doors.  Now let's hope these clients actually pay me :)

I promise to spend some time documenting the projects we've done to the house and hopefully taking pictures and doing a house tour at some point in the near future.  Things are looking pretty good in the new house, but it is by no means anywhere near "finished."

Anyways, on to this weeks Ten on Tuesday.  If you would like to play along, visit Roots and Rings to see this weeks questions and link up!

1.  Have you ever used Craigslist?
Yes!  In fact, I just used it last week to sell some Groupons I wasn't going to use.  I also use it to peruse furniture for sale, look for apartments (back when I rented) and look for jobs!  I think Craigslist is great and I've never had a bad experience.

2.  Can you sew?
Kind of?  I can sew a few stitches if I have too, but I usually leave that for someone with more skills.  Like my mom.  I would eventually like to get a sewing machine and try to tackle some DIY projects around the house but that probably won't happen anytime soon.

3.  Do you pour syrup on your pancakes or dip your pancakes in the syrup?
I just recently started eating syrup (I know, I know, I'm weird).  I usually dip my pancakes in the syrup.  That way I don't get soggy pancakes.

4.  Rain storms:  Love them or hate them?
Well, until I moved to the Pacific Northwest I enjoyed a good thunder storm.  Now, it rains WAY too often for me to say that I like the rain.

5.  Do you like swimming?
Yes!  I used to be on the swim team and in college J. and I used to swim two mornings a week for our workout!

6.  What kind of drink do you order at Sonic?
It's been a long time since I lived near a Sonic, but I used to order Cherry Limeade or a slush.  I LOVE a good Cherry Limeade.  Does anyone know where I can get a Cherry Limeade around these parts?

7.  Are you funny?
I'm going to say no.  I'm sarcastic and sometimes people don't get it.  So that's not very funny.

8.  At what age will your children get cell phones?
Well, my hypothetical children will get cellphones when they have their own cars that is for sure.  And potentially before then, I will have to see what other parents are doing and at what age I feel like it's necessary for my kids to have a phone.  And if they are willing to contribute towards the bill!  Having a cell phone could be a good way to teach kids about responsibility, the value of money and paying bills!

9.  What's your favorite vegetable?
Hmm, this is a tough one.  I really like organic spinach, zucchinis, asparagus, green beans, corn, carrots, bell peppers ... the list goes on.

10.  Were you a Girl Scout?


  1. I have the same problem with sarcasm. It's like I CANNOT TURN IT OFF and a lot of times, people don't get it or think I'm being some sort of Debbie Downer loser.

    Cherry limeade sounds really good, but sadly, I have no idea where either of us can get them!

  2. There's a Sonic Drive-In up in Ferndale. It's a bit of a drive, but your closer now!
