Even though most of the snow in Boston melted yesterday because of the warm rain, I am still dreaming of tropical locations. I decided the best way to do that was to make mango part of my dinner tonight:
Mix it all together and it's almost like you are in a warm and sunny place.
Since one of my FAVORITE bloggers Lisa wrote the 10 on Tuesday questions today and they are great, I am going to answer them:
1. What accomplishment are you most proud of?
Probably getting "professional status" (tenure) at work this year. I have my bachelors and master's degree, but neither of those were as hard as my first three years of teaching, so therefore I am most proud of making it through that with my principal still liking me :)
2. How much did you weight when you were born?
5 pounds, 5 ounces. I was 3 1/2 weeks early so I was pretty tiny.
3. What is your favorite perfume?
Not really much of a perfume person...hopefully I don't smell bad.
4. How many siblings do you have?
I have a sister and a brother. They are the best.
5. How many children would you like to have?
Ooo...I think 2. I love having both a brother and a sister, but I could never handle 3 kids haha. Sometimes I wonder if I can even handle 2...
6. What's the best class you took in college?
Hmmm...I really actually liked my philosophy and theology classes and my history courses. Nothing particularly stands out though...I tend to dislike most classes, I know terrible...
7. What was your favorite game to play when you were a child?
Hmm, maybe Chutes and Ladders? I also loved playing the card game War. My cousins and I invented the "Cheating Game of War" where you got to look at what you were going to turn over...pointless, I know.
8. What character on Friends are you most like?
I love this question- Friends is my FAVORITE show. I actually did a paper on this show when I was in Australia (you can see I did some serious work there). Anyway, I can't decide which character I am most like and I asked my sister and she can't either. I am definitely not Monica I know that. But I am not particularly Rachel or Phoebe. Maybe I just love watching them because they are all nothing like me :)
9. Are you a phone person? (ie: Do you like talking on the phone?)
Like so many others have said, I definitely was in middle school/high school. Now I only talk to a couple of people on the phone. I am definitely more of an e-mail/facebook etc person. I also HATE calling people, hate hate hate- unless it's like one of my best friends. I'd rather show up and see someone than call them. Don't know what my problem is...
10. What was the best vacation you ever took?
That would be Eric and my Europe Trip in 2006- we did Athens, Santorini, Rome, Venice, Barcelona, Paris, London, and all around Scotland & Ireland. It was amazing and we discuss how we want to do it again all the time.
Other fabulous trips include studying abroad in Australia and all the trips that involved and spring break with my friends in Aruba!
Well now I am thinking about tropical vacations again. I'm off to go plan my workout for tomorrow morning. I am going to try to do a balanced muscle workout at home if I can do it. I'll post about it tomorrow!
