Ten on Tuesday

1. Who is your favourite talk show host?
I’m not so sure that I have one. I don’t watch a lot of daytime television, so I don’t have a favourite daytime talks show host. I do enjoy watching Craig Ferguson though, but he’s on at night.

2. How do you style your hair on a daily basis?
Usually I just blow-dry it. Sometimes if I’m feeling really rushed I’ll throw it in a ponytail. I’m boring that way!

3. If you were stuck in your bedroom for a week, what would you need in order to not go crazy?
A couple books maybe? We have a TV in our room, so I think between that and a couple books I’d survive a week!

4. What are the best non-reality shows on television?
Right now the non-reality shows I’m watching are: Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice, Big Bang Theory, Justified, and Glee. I also watch The Walking Dead and Rookie Blue when they’re “in season”.

5. Do you mow your own lawn and clean your own house?
I don’t mow the lawn! I think I’ve maybe done it once in my life? It’s Kyle’s chore, lol. I do clean my own house though, I can’t justify paying someone to clean it just yet.

6. As an adult, what is the best part of summer?
Barbecuing! I love barbecuing because there’s no messy pots or pans to clean up afterwards.

7. If you could ask one celebrity one question, who and what would you ask?
This seems to be a question that pops up a lot and really, I have no idea who and what I would ask! It’s tough to pick just ONE celebrity and then find the right question to ask!

8. Post a picture.

Me before heading out to a wedding on the weekend!

9. How many books do you read a year?
I’ve never actually kept track of how many books I’m read in a year. Maybe I should start? I’d say about a dozen or so.

10. Which national chain makes the best delivery pizza?
We recently got a Papa John’s in Kamloops and their pizza is AMAZING. I think it’s the sauce? Regardless, right now they’re my favourite.

1. What TV commercial do you think is the most annoying?
Oooh, there’s a bunch of them! The Free Credit Report.com ones are super annoying, and the new Old Spice ones are annoying too. (Please bring back the original Old Spice Man!)

2. What is the weirdest gift you have ever received?
That’s a good question. Kyle and I received a Bible as a wedding gift, which we thought was odd because we’re not religious whatsoever. Maybe one day we’ll give it a read, only to be more more educated on what it says.

3. What is a song you thought you knew the words and then later found out you were wrong?
“Drive By” by Train. I argued with my mom about the lyrics and she was right. Damn!

4. What are you most looking forward to this month?
Well, my birthday is next week, and Kyle and I are going to a wedding this weekend. Other than that, it’s just the countdown to my due date!

5. What is your favourite kitchen appliance? Explain.
My dishwasher. You have no idea how much I love it.

6. If you could have a gift card to anywhere right now, where would you choose? Why?
The maternity store, because I desperately need more maternity clothes!

7. What are your favourite pizza toppings?
In no particular order: mushrooms, kalamata olives, feta cheese and fresh tomatoes.

8. Name something you’re thankful for aside from obvious answers (i.e. family, job, faith, etc.).
Living in Canada. Sure, we do things a little differently up here, but I wouldn’t live anywhere else!

9. What was your least favourite rule growing up?
Making my bed. I don’t know if that’s considered more of a chore than a rule, but either way, I hated making my bed. Hell, I still don’t make my bed!

10. If you could train your pet to do one thing, what would it be? Example, “Weego” from the Bud Light commercial:
For now, I’d just like him to stop peeing in the house. Once we master that, if I could train him to change diapers once the baby comes, that would be awesome! (I’m using Campbell for this since Daphne is old and like they say, you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, lol)

Ten on Tuesday

1. Would you rather give up pedicures or flat/curling irons?
Flat/curling irons, hands down. Especially now that I can’t reach my feet to paint my toenails. It does help that I never used a flat or curling iron to begin with ;)

2. Does your middle name have a family meaning?
Not at all. It’s the only name my parents could agree on.

3. Do you like to sneeze?
Only when I can feel it coming. And only when it’s not gross and I don’t blow snot all over the place.

4. Do you think kids should need to learn cursive?
Yes, because nothing bothers me more than crappy penmanship.

5. When you go to the beach for the day, what do you take?
Water, a towel, and probably a book. And probably an umbrella, since I hate direct sunlight/heat.

6. Which decade had the best music?
The 90’s, but I may be biased.

7. Are you a good hand-shaker?
I like to think I am. Not too strong, not too weak, and my hands are never clammy. I hate clammy hands during a handshake, as well as weak ones.

8. Do you have a go-to meal for when you are at a restaurant and you can’t decide?
Usually a pasta dish with tomato sauce or steak sandwich. You really can’t mess either of those up.

9. Do you have slippers?
Yes, and I love them, even though Kyle thinks they make me sound like a little old Chinese lady when I walk. (I may or may not shuffle a little bit…)

10. Are you easily grossed out?
Not really, unless it comes to blood being taken. I just can’t handle looking at it.
