Ten on Tuesday!

1. Growing up, what was one favorite item that you had to have with you at all times?
I had (still have) this feather pillow. You can barely consider it a pillow, but I used to bring it whenever I traveled. It still finds a home on my bed, but I don’t generally sleep with it anymore because it’s really not even close to a pillow anymore…just a fabric case for what used to be fluffy feathers.

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?
Chapstick. When I go see my brother we can’t take anything in with us (nothing. At all.) and by the time we leave I am DYING for chapstick. Carmex specifically. In the tube, not in the tub that you apply with your finger. Gross.

3. Where is your favorite place to be to just hide away from everything and breathe for a moment?
Hm…I guess home. Outside in the backyard. For now, until I can actually figure my new neighborhood the hell out and have someplace else to go escape.

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)
His personality. He does this thing where he makes sound effects for um…EVERYTHING. Sometimes it can be annoying when he doesn’t actually use his words, but overall it is cute.

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?)
The people I work with. Sometimes our work is mega crazy, but having awesome people to work along side makes it all ok!

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?
Responsibility. The ability to do things for myself. I had chores since I was old enough to stay home alone. I am grateful for that, because my husband? Didn’t have that. And he sucks at doing house stuff because his mom had a cleaning service and would do his laundry for him and crap like that. Totally ended up biting ME in the ass because now he’s like incapable of doing it. Even though he is TOTALLY capable he just figures someone else (me) will do it if he doesn’t. Trust in the fact that as soon as our kids are old enough they’ll be cleaning house, dishes, doing laundry, and all that other crap so that their husbands or wives will thank me one day!

7. What is your favorite song, that will always bring a smile to your face and make you think of something happy?
Hmm…this is a hard one. Anything country really will bring a smile to my face. As long as it’s not sad, because who smiles at sad songs? Not I said the fly.

>8. What is your favorite things about being an American? (If you not American, what are you proud of in regards to your country)
Being an American. Having freedoms and liberties. And living in this country.

9. What is your favorite meal that reminds you of being a child?
Tuna casserole. We had it a lot. My dad always just took whatever veggies were left in the fridge, whatever pasta we’d eaten that week, some tuna and some cheese and threw it together. I once had Steve try to make it for me. He failed because he didn’t follow my “recipe” but instead he found one online. And it included cream of mushroom soup. GAG.

10. Name 3 things that other people would say are their favorite thing about you.
I’m a good listener. I’m honest (sometimes too honest for some people, my bad). And also? I’m totally hot. (I feel like someone would totally say that about me)
