I was feeling uninspired about what to write today, and then I stumbled across Ten on Tuesday, hosted by Chelsea.
This is that point during the month when NaBloPoMo starts to get hard for me. It's halfway through the month so I've used a number of ideas, and I've spent most of the past 5 days sitting on the couch at home.
(That means life has been boring.)
On an unrelated note, today I'm thankful for layering clothes for warmth. Currently, I'm wearing leggings, socks, boots, a dress and a sweater. It's wonderful.
Here's my Ten on Tuesday:
1. What is your favorite breakfast pastry?
My dad is well know for his cinnamon rolls, which are super delicious, gooey, cinnamony rolls. He also makes amazing Sour Cream Pecan Coffee Cake and a really good Danish Cringle. So I have to go with anything that my dad might pull out of the over, or off of the stove. He is breakfast king.
2. Were you ever in a Thanksgiving or Christmas play?
Not that I can recall, but I'm not exactly well known for my memory so it could have happened.
3. What is your favorite clothing accessory?
Define accessory. This type of year, I love scarves. They keep you warmer and can add a lot of cuteness to a look. If shoes were an accessory (and since they are kind of essential, I don't think they count), I'd have to go with boots. I'd narrow it down further, but that's too difficult. I'm all about taking the easy way out.
4. What is your favorite item of clothing?
This may actually be the toughest question here for me. Right now I have a pair of jeans I could wear over and over and over again, but if we're talking real comfort I'd choose sweatpants or basketball shorts. Sexy, huh?
5. What is your favorite color and why?
I love jewel tones, most especially emerald and ruby. And teal or whatever the corresponding jewel tone is. How about I just tell you about my favorite color family. I think that jewel tones look fabulous on everyone and are so rich.
6. What is your favorite type of Christmas cookie?
I love to decorate sugar cookies but I'd rather eat gingerbread/snaps. I love the spiciness. I also won't turn down anything that involves chocolate.
7. What is your favorite scent (food, perfume/lotion)?
I love the smell of fresh cut grass, clean laundry, our dog when she comes home from the groomer, and something delicious baking in the oven.
8. What is your favorite household cleaner?
I really like Windex, and not just because it's good for everything (name that movie!). I love cleaning a mirror or window and having those immediate, quick results. It doesn't take time to do and there's just something about a clean mirror.
9. When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? And what did you actually grow up to be?
When I was really young, I wanted to play in the NBA. Obviously that did not become a reality, for many reasons. When I was in high school, I wanted to be a physical therapist. Again, didn't happen. I don't really think I've found what I'm supposed to be. Currently I'm a transcriber at a local university, but that's not what I want to do with the rest of my life. I'll let you all know when I figure it out.
10. What is the last song or album you bought?
I just downloaded Girl Talk's new album, but that was free. I pre-ordered the next volume of Glee music, which I'm pretty excited about. While I wasn't a big fan of "the kiss" last week, I'm pretty sure that episode was my favorite for the season.
