Ten on Tuesday, err, Thursday...

1. What’s the one thing you always do when you’re stressed?
I talk fast, get a little cranky, and tend to push people away...

2. What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever done for a friend?
Well, I can't think of anything weird, but the most unique thing I've done is help my best friend's husband pick out her engagement ring, which was the most special experience! And the hardest secret to keep!!!

3. What cleaning supply could you not live without?
Clorox wipes... It's just nice to be able to quickly wipe something up.

4. How long do you plan on living where you currently reside?
Good question. Right now, I feel like I'll live here forever becausee that is how long it will take for the value to rebound.

Realistically, I will probably stay here until I get married (if that ever happens...) and the I would rent this out...

5. Do you usually vote straight party, a mixture, or not at all?
I tend to vote straight party

6. What’s something that you love to do, but seem to never make time for?
I love knitting but don't quite find the time to do it - or not as much as I would like to. I do tend to knit more in the winter, though, so hopefully I can do it more often this winter.

7. What’s your favorite store to buy things for other people?
It's a toss-up between Anthropologie, Bibelot, or Patina. Bibelot and Patina are these cute little boutiques. Anthropologie has THE best aprons. I can always find SOMETHING at one of these 3 stores.

8. What’s the weather like around you today?
It's sort of overcast/rainy. It's been like that all week! But I am not complaining. I will take this over heat/humidity!

9. What’s the worst book you’ve ever bought and read?
Definitely The Road by Cormac McCarthy. I guess it just didn't translate for me. I got it at a company book sale, though, and only paid $.25... but I still want my quarter back. It was THAT awful.

10. What’s the closest thing to you that is yellow?
The title of the latest edition of Runner's World is yellow, that's it for yellow things around me!

Ohhhh Anthropologie!! I got to visit my first one in Chicago and it was AMAZING :)

I can't imagine keeping the proposal a secret, but how fun!

Charbelle said...

I'm stealing this one, it's fun!!

Kyla Roma said...

Picking the ring must have been so exciting! :)

I've still never been into an Anthro store, I don't think I would have the self control to not buy the whole store!

Becky said...

You want your quarter back - wow that WAS a bad book!

Nora said...

You know, I've only been Anthropologie once. That's kind of pathetic probably. We have only one store in STL so maybe that's my excuse =)

How fun that you helped pick the ring. That's definitely a special event/moment!

Abby said...

I love the Anthropologie aprons you buy for people!! ;) They are adorable!!!!

What I wouldn't give for a cool/rainy day...... It was in the 80's yesterday and rainy -- which was awesome. But, It'll be back to 96 & sunny day. Making me nauseated....

This year has sucked for weather here!

Leigh said...

I've never been to Anthropologie either...definitely want to check it out sometime.

It's finally sunny here...frosty in the mornings, but sunny. So much better than the week plus we had of rain

Awww I LOVE that you helped your best friends husband pick out her ring. That is so special :-)

I talk REALLY fast when I'm stressed too! Haha

Amy --- Just A Titch said...

I HATED The Road, too and everyone else seemed to love it. Ugh!

Kelly (She Wears a Red Sox Cap) said...

Love this :) Whenever I read yours I always want to do it!

I love that you helped your bf's husband pick out an engagement ring, that is very lucky!

Lisa-Marie said...

Have you read any other Cormac McCarthy? I really like his writing!

Mandy said...

I love that you helped pick out an engagement ring for a friend. That would be one hell of a secret to keep.

Nicole said...

Anthropologie seriously does have the BEST aprons! I send my mom links one year, and she made one similar to those for me. She's awesome!

Lo said...

I really love the "what cleaning supply could you not live without question" - ummmm you know I don't think about that too much. What if my answer is Downy Wrinkle Releaser? Does that count?

I love Anthropologie, but only get to go when I am in a much bigger city!
