Ten on Tuesdays!

1. What television character do you identify with? Good question-- but unfortunately, I do not watch a lot of sitcoms (yes, I watch a lot of trashy reality T.V. and thankfully most reality T.V. contestants are trashy and unlike myself). I used to want to be like Rachel Green, but lord knows I'm more of a neurotic Monica.

2. Describe your morning routine. I wake it and think "crap, I should really start getting up earlier." I run downstairs, start a pot of coffee and then jump in the shower. I put on a little make-up, blow dry my hair for approximately 60 seconds and throw on some clothes. Next, I fill up my travel mug and eat breakfast on the run.

3. How do you do lunch? Bring from home or dine out? I pack a lunch 99% of the time. Now that I work in the boonies, the nearest restaurant is about 20 minutes away. Not conducive to eating out. I generally pack a turkey sandwich, pretzel thins and fruit OR a healthy choice frozen meal.

4. What is one moment that, although seemingly trivial at the time, changed your life? Accepting my internship in this exact county. I ended up getting a job and found a husband!

5. Name your top three beauty products. Does chap stick count? Oil of Olay face lotion (I was raised on it), Cover Girl Lash Blast mascara, and any OPI nail polish.

6. What do you do when you’re alone in the car? yell expletives at the grandpa in front of me and sing every single song that comes on the radio-- you can ask my husband. I have an uncanny ability to remember the lyrics to every song that I've ever heard-- even if I've only heard it once. He hates it. Ha. It entertains me.

7. What is the ideal city for you to live in? If you can, take this survey (< that’s a link) and tell us the results. Do you agree with them?

Well, the quiz was sort of long but super fun. Here's my results:
1. Norfolk, Virginia-- funny, my lil' bro lives there.
2. El Paso, Texas-- this is random, but I'd be open to Texas. What's not to love about Texas?
3. Charlotte, North Carolina-- I'd move there in a second.
4. Richmond, Virginia-- This is hysterical because I've been trying to convince my husband that we should move to Richmond in a few years. It's cheaper, it's warmer and it's pretty. He told me it's a dump. Bummer. I should also note that my husband grew up in Prince Georges County, Maryland. I'm not sure if he's allowed to call Richmond a dump. Ha.
5. Oklahoma City, Oklahoma-- Interesting, I know nothing about Oklahoma. Is it SO me?
6. Nashville, Tennessee-- I'd die. I'd move there in two seconds. Without a doubt.
7. Hampton, Virginia-- I'm going to need to look on a map for this one.
8. Tulsa, Oklahoma-- maybe I should research Oklahoma a bit more.
9. Louisville, Kentucky-- Big hats and sundresses? Sign me up.
10. Greenville, South Carolina-- For sure.

The rest of the list was centered around cities in Texas, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tenneesee. I grew up in a pretty transient family and I loved moving around and seeing the United States. I'd be open to exploring each and everyone of these places, but my husband is a different story. He's spent all but four years of his life in Maryland (and when he left he went to the far away and exotic state of.......... Virginia). I think he may self-implode if he leaves Maryland. I'll work on it though. I've been harping on Richmond for months now-- maybe he'll buy it this time. :)

8. Are you waiting for something? Always. It makes life more fun!

9. What was the last shocking news you heard? That a college friend has Leukemia. I recently heard that an old high school friend died of Leukemia as well. It's terrifying and devastating.

10. What are three things you would not do for a million dollars? I wouldn't murder anyone, I wouldn't become a stripper and I wouldn't cheat on my husband.

thanks for stopping by my blog, Monica! haha. um by the looks of it...we're really similar! i have a ridiculous memory of songs too! i sing EVERY one. doesn't matter the genre of music, it drives my husband crazy, too. also, it bothers me if he asks me a question in the middle of a great song...i have to wait until an instrumental part to answer! haha

also, im originally from richmond! (it's not a dump! lol) we go back every year to visit extended family. you'd like it there!

lastly (longest comment ever) chapstick totally counts as a beauty product! :)

Ashley said...

haha, it does sound like we have a lot in common. If my husband asks me a question while I'm singing (badly), he is ignored. :) I added you to my reader so I'll keep in touch.

Super cute blog, thank you for the comment. Oh, and even if he didn't grow up in N. VA, yes, Richmond is a dump. ;o)

Ally said...

I like your answers. Does anyone wake up with enough time to spare? When I'm employed I bring my lunch - even though we have lots of places to eat, it's better for you and saves money :)

I live in Charlotte, NC. Great place! I took your quiz and most of the places for me are in California. I must have put a high figure on that housing!
