Ten on Tuesday

As I've mentioned, life is crazy right now so I don't have time for a great big blog post, I do have time for Ten on Tuesday though :) Thanks Lisa for inspiring me every week!

1. Do you decorate for Valentine’s day?

Haha alright fine, that was freshman year of college :) I don't really decorate any more but I still think Valentine's Day is a great holiday. Why not celebrate the people we love (friends, family, significant others) with some pink and chocolate? This doesn't mean I love crazy sappy romance or anything, but I did enjoy my surprise feety pajamas last year!   

2. Does your desktop have a picture or computer graphic? Is it organized?

My desktop has a picture of Eric and I at our wedding :) It's not organized but it doesn't look messy because everything saves on top of one icon... don't know why but don't care. I never pay attention to where anything is saved on my computer because i just use the search feature.

3. Do you use a paper planner, electric planner or no planner at all?

All about my paper planner, tried to adjust to electronic but I like that my paper planner is available all the time and I can break it out in the middle of a meeting and not look like I'm texting :)

4. Do you change purses or bags often or stick with a good thing?

I am obsessed with purses and bags. I change them pretty frequently but not ridiculously so. I'm using the one I made at my bachelorette party last June still... but I got a new teaching bag, so you know I feel fullfilled on the new bag department.

5. What’s your favorite YouTube Video?

Kinda hate YouTube. Eric and my brother watch YouTube for hours after everyone else has gone to bed. I just don't find it amusing...

That being said, if I had a smartboard in my classroom I'd use some of the videos on it I think. Just found an awesome one on teen numbers yesterday haha.

6. Do you use Turbo Tax or a real person to pay your taxes?

I use my Dad, who is definitely a real person :)

7. How many states have you set foot (or tire) in? Which ones?

Let's see... Massachusetts, Maine, Vermont, NH, New York, Conn., Rhode Island, New York, Maryland, Virginia, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Oklahoma (at age 2 and don't remember it, if this counts) Utah, Arizona, California, Hawaii... I think that's it. So 18. Not bad, but I'd like to see a lot more.

8. How many countries have you been in? Which ones?

US, England, Australia, New Zealand, Greece, Italy, Spain, France, Scotland, Ireland... that's 10 if you include the US. Also not bad, but let's be honest I can do better- I just need an endless supply of money and time...anyone have extra?

9. How many pillows are in your house? (Sleeping or decorative)

I think 4 on my bed, 2 in the guest room, and maybe 3 downstairs. Very random question, not gonna lie.

10. How cold is too cold for flip flops?

This is a tough question for me because I LOVE flip flops, but I hate to be cold. How about we just change it so it is just NEVER too cold for flip flops (aka never gets below 60 or so haha).


  1. i have to have a paper planner too! i carry it with me everywhere and feel so lost without it. and yay for decorating for valentine's day. hizzah!

  2. Umm don't all teachers decorate?! I definitely need the paper planner so I can check things off the list!

  3. I am a paper planner girl too, I just never look at the one on my iphone and I like decorating events in my paper planner. I also love making Valentines day cards.

  4. I'm jealous of all your traveling. :-)
    And I'm all about the paper planner too.
    And thanks for checking out my crafting blog. There are wedding layouts on there too if you scroll down (if your interested).

  5. 10 countries isn't bad -- I know people who've been to 0. Where are you heading next?

  6. You think asking how many pillows you have is a random question? I think its pivotal in life to know this information.

  7. I use my dad too! :) I love it that I have never had to worry about taxes (other than what I owe to the government...).

    I also use a paper planner, and love it. I have an excel sheet online, for week and monthly goals, and other random stuff, but everyday "to-do"s are written on paper. I love being able to carry it around (like you said), and cross things off!

  8. I love how we kind of have the same view on V-day. I think it helps that we both love pink. :) Hello, how can I not love a holiday where pink is the signature color!

    I really should sit down & count the # of states I've been to... It's kind of lazy of me that I didn't! And I also wish I had seen more countries! But like you said, it's a function of time/money.

  9. hahah "very random question, not gonna lie"

    i love paper planners too!

  10. YAY!! Valentine's is just one of those feel-good days. Always a good excuse for some pink and some chocolate.

  11. Eric stays up late watching YouTube videos a lot too! Haha! I really don't see the appeal but to each their own :)

    When I was reading all these yesterday I thought "desktop" was referring to an actual desk! Ha! I am ANAL about keeping my desktop cleaned up. I have lots of different folders and keep everything organized in the correct folder and try not to let it get overrun by folders! Haha
