10 on Tuesday - playing catch up

Apparently, I posted last week's 10 on Tuesday. Now I have to do todays...

1. Growing up, what was one favorite item that you had to have with you at all times?
My mom jokes that I was a fan of the 3 Bs. Binkie, baby, and blankey. When I was older and had long outgrown binkies, etc. it was a book (so apparently, still with the B theme)

2. Being an adult, what is one favorite item that you have to have with you at all times, and what happens if you do not have it with you? Do you lose your sanity or just go back home to get it?
Either my cell phone or another book. I strongly believe in the philosophy "always carry a book." I don't usually go back for the book, but I usually will for the phone.

3. Where is your favorite place to be to just hide away from everything and breathe for a moment?
Currently, my new bedroom. It's my haven.

4. What is your favorite thing about your partner? (If you don’t have a partner, then someone who is very close and will always be in your life)
I don't have one favorite thing - he's awesome overall. I love that he loves to help people (especially me) and that he is generous and usually pretty calm, even in a crisis. I love his sense of humor. He can always make me laugh.

5. What is your favorite thing about your job? (If you don’t have a job, then what is your favorite thing that you do during your day?)
That I get to be with my kids.

6. What is your favorite lesson that your parents taught you growing up? Looking back, is it something that you want to use to teach your children when they reach that age?
Probably how to handle money (my dad) - but I abandoned some of what he taught me when I was in college and that is what got me into trouble.

7. What is your favorite song, that will always bring a smile to your face and make you think of something happy?
It's not my favorite song, but "So Happy Together" always makes me smile and makes me happy. Also "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas"

8. What is your favorite things about being an American? (If you're not American, what are you proud of in regards to your country)
Freedom of religion. I love that I don't have to defend my desire to go to church (or not), etc.

9. What is your favorite meal that reminds you of being a child?
Ravioli? My mom's bread crumb chicken, maybe

10. Name 3 things that other people would say are their favorite thing about you.
I have no idea. I'm guessing my hair, my voice (singing) and - no idea. I'm obviously not that interesting.


  1. I thought your posting would decrease when you had the baby, but you're posting more than I am! I'm impressed.

  2. And I'm feeling bad for slacking and not being as consistent as usual. :)
