Ten on Tuesday #20!

Happy Tuesday! I hope you're all having a wonderful start to your week!  I'm getting ready to spend the evening in Seattle with my friends R. and S2, so you could say my week is off to a good start :)

You know the drill by now ... if you want to participate in this week's Ten on Tuesday, head over to Roots and Rings to link up!  

1.  When you are on a plane and the kid behind you is kicking your seat, what do you do?
I feel like this just happened to me ... I usually just sit there unless it gets REALLY bad and then I occasionally look over the seat each time the kid kicks the chair until the parent notices.  I don't want to be rude and I'm not confrontational, but you should definitely be paying attention to what your kid is doing if you are bringing them on a plane.  I paid for my seat and I shouldn't be kicked the whole flight!

2.  What food that you KNOW is bad for you and you shouldn't have, but you love/eat it anyway?
Umm, what food don't I like that's bad for me?  Let's start with that.  Haha.  I love ALL sweets -- candy, cookies, brownies, cake, cupcakes, ice cream, marshmallows, anything with lots of sugar in it is something I love.  I am trying REALLY hard to cut back, but it's so darn hard!

3.  What is your favorite book of all time?
I always have the hardest time with this question!  I'm going to say Eat, Pray, Love ... I absolutely love that book and have read it more than a couple of times!  And now I love the movie as well ... who doesn't love Julia Roberts and Javier Bardem?!

4.  If I came to visit you in your town, where would we eat?
Well I just moved here, so I haven't been everywhere yet.  But, if you came for lunch we would go to The Lunch Box and if you came for dinner we would either go to Il Graniao for Italian or try this Thai place I keep hearing about!

5.  You have 500 dollars and 40 minutes to spend it at any store you want.  Where do you go?
Well, I can't make it to any good stores in 40 minutes, so let's pretend I'm already at the mall.  I'd go to Nordstrom because you have so many options ... shoes, bags, makeup, sunglasses, jewelry, clothes!  I could definitely spend $500 in forty minutes.  And, Nordstrom has the best return policy ever so I could always bring anything back and exchange it :)

6.  What blog do you read every day/the most often?
I read every blog in my "Blogs I Read" list as often as I'm online (which is usually every day).  The blogs I'm hooked up right now are Young House Love and Tasty Kitchen.  And I'm in love with Pinterest, which I realize is not a blog, but I spend A LOT of time on Pinterest everyday.

7.  What's the longest you've ever been stuck at an airport?
I don't really remember ... probably a few hours.  I feel like I must not have a crazy, airport horror story or I'd have a better answer for this one!

8.  What's your daily makeup/face/cleansing routine?
Well, in the morning I wash my face, put on moisturizer (with SPF!), primer, foundation, powder, bronzer and setting powder.  Then blush.  Then eye primer.  Then eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara and I comb my eyebrows into place!  At night, I wash it all off and then put on moisturizer and whatever skin-help cream I'm using at the moment.  If I'm being lazy I just use an Olay make-up wipe.

9.  Where is your farthest away friend?
I think I'm actually the farthest away from all my friends.  Most of them live in Indianapolis or Chicago.  But, right now my cousin is in Italy so she is the farthest away.  Permanently, I think my friend Mrs. B. lives the farthest away, she's in Virginia Beach, Va. right now.

10.  Where is your favorite place to go hiking (or to enjoy nature?)
Anywhere within a 2-3 hour radius of my house!  We are lucky to live somewhere where we could go hiking every weekend and never see all of the great trails around here!  


  1. I totally agree about Nordstrom - they've got everything!

  2. You are probably my most far away friend too! We are literally on opposite ends of the country.

  3. Yay for Nordstrom! We need to meet up soon. Maybe some Mexican? :)
