Ten on Tuesday

1. How many blogs do you read every day and what are they? (I’m talking the ones you NEVER miss)
I read way too many blogs. It's ridiculous. Every morning I open my google reader and see at least 100 unread blogs. I need to cut back, but it takes so much time to weed through blogs. I also need to get better about commenting. It's hard when you read blogs via reader (that are generally blocked at work).

2. How many “best friends” do you have? Do you have different “besties” for different areas of your life?
That's a tough one. I wish that I could say that I have several best friends (simply because I'd love to know that feeling), but I'm just not that popular. I have a lot of really close friends. I have different friends that I go to for different reasons. Honestly, no two of my friends are alike and my relationship isn't exactly the same with any of them. I do still have one bestie from high school, who was in my wedding and who I continue to speak to often to this day. I also have several internet besties that I met through blogging and other various online things-- Ahem, Amanda and Shaina. Shaina and I bonded over obsessive live Bachelor and Gossip Girl G-Chats. You don't even want to KNOW what Amanda and I bonded over almost 10 years ago. If you want to be best friends, email me. We can work it out.

3. What’s your daily make up routine?

Moisturizer, a little powder, some eyeshadow and bonne belle lip gloss. I'm relatively low maintenance with make up.

4. What is your ideal girl’s night?
Pajamas, tons of food, wine and chats.

5. Do you keep up with your nails/toenails or are they au natural?
I almost always have my toenails done. Blank toenails disgust me. If you're not a man, you need color on your toes. I rarely wear nail polish, simply because I'm so rough on my hands that it chips within 15 minutes.

6. What’s your best roommate story (assuming you had a roommate at some point in your life)?
Ha, I have so many. Some of my fondest memories are of 4 girls stuffed into a tiny dorm room doing Taebo videos with Billy Blanks (or was it Banks?). My roommate had terrible gas and let one rip at every high kick (Caroline.. can you guess who?).

I'm also fond of my poor fish story. My roommate took it home for winter break (she lived in Massachusetts, I lived in Pennsylvania) and forgot about our poor fish in her car. Fish because a fish-cicle.

7. What’s your “go to” outfit that you wear more than anything else?

A dress, leggings and flats. I love it. It's like wearing PJs in public.

8. Do you have a beauty secret?
Smile. It does wonders!

9. Did you read Seventeen magazine growing up?
Umm hello? And.. various other teen magazines. Did you doubt it?

10. How did you learn to put on makeup?

Probably in Seventeen magazine. My mother had never worn make up so she sure as heck didn't teach me. That's probably why I barely wear any. I'd probably look way hotter if I did. Ha.

I ALWAYS have polish on my toes! I hate the way they look bare!

This is a cute list of questions, I'm sending it out by e-mail. I'd really like to know what kinds of blogs other people are following.

a dress w/leggings is ALWAYS my go-to outfit!! it's cute without looking overdone and you can make it professional and casual. It's awesome!
and don't worry-I don't really have a real life bff either, but rather just a bunch of close friends. It's hard to have a best friend as a grown up unless you were best friends already!

I'm wearing a dress, leggings and flats today. Love!

I unfollowed some blogs a few minutes ago. It's just too overwhelming. I still follow 134 people. How does that happen?

Yep... WAY too many blogs here, too!
And Bonnie Bell Lip Gloss rules!!
