Ten on Tuesday - Mix it Up

First of all, thank you SO much for all of your congratulations on yesterday's post! You are all so sweet and it means the world to me. This is an exciting time for The Scientist and me! And now, let's begin today's Ten on Tuesday program.

I am in love with this week's questions. They're so random and so fun! Head on over to Chelsea's blog to link up!

1. Have you ever used Craigslist?
All the damn time. I've gotten jobs, furniture and dates from Craigslist, along with lots of cold hard cash for selling my own stuff. My favorite piece of furniture in our apartment right now is a buffet/sideboard. It's in perfect condition and we got it on Craigslist for $15. AWESOME.

2. Can you sew?

Yes, but sadly I don't sew as often as I would like. We have a tiny apartment so the sewing machine stays in the closet. It's a bit of a pain to haul it out so it's not really worth it right now to start any major projects. But I used to sew constantly, and will pick it up again when we eventually move to a bigger place.

3. Do you pour syrup on your pancakes or dip your pancakes in the syrup?

When I was younger I would would dip, but now I pour. I prefer savory breakfast foods, but on the rare occasion that I want pancakes, BRING ON THE SYRUP.

4. Rain storms: Love them or hate them?

Even though it rains here pretty regularly, I still appreciate a real storm. Downpour, monsoon style rain is so cool. 

5. Do you like swimming?

Pretty sure I was an aquatic creature in a past life. I love to swim. I crave time in the water all the time. In the summertime, in my free time, you will always find me frolicking in the water Ariel style.

6. What kind of drink do you order at Sonic?

I don't. We don't have them here. Apparently the Cherry Limeade is the drink to order, but I would likely order regular ol' iced tea.

7. Are you funny?
*funny response*

8. At what age will your kids get cell phones?I don't even know how to answer this question. 

9. What’s your favorite vegetable?

No question about that one. Runners up include asparagus, broccoli, spinach, swiss chard and all other vegetables.

10. Were you a Girl Scout?

Technically I was, but we were basically the delinquent troop where I grew up. Our moms didn't particularly like going to official Girl Scout camps, so instead we went to a beach cabin owned by the family of our troop members. We spent our days on the tide flats and our nights by the campfire and giggling over boys in our tents. The moms spent their days on the huge deck drinking wine and their nights inside drinking wine. Those are some of the best memories from my childhood. 


  1. I still love the rainstorms, too. Especially if I get to sit inside with a good book, a cup of tea, and watch it come down.

  2. I've been wanting to take a sewing class!

  3. I want to join that girl scout troop when I have kids ;)

  4. I'm really glad someone else has gotten dates from Craigslist and I'm not the only crazy! ;)

    Also, artichokes. I seem to have forgotten most of my ACTUAL favorite vegetables on this list. Potatoes and artichokes are both WAY up on my list and I forgot them both until other people reminded me!


Talk to me, Goose.
