ten things

1. Well, you all know what day it is.

2. Dolly has to stay tied up to the door nob. She has a UTI and her house training is not very reliable at the moment.

3. She really really does not like being tied to the door.

4. Got my Toms shoes this week. They are incredibly comfortable.

5. Went to the dentist today and found out that I have a tooth that may one day spontaneously self-destruct. I guess this is a thing that happens to people on rare occasion, and the dentists don't know why, although it's not because of poor oral hygiene.

6. Watching New Moon with mom. It's the first time she's seen it since it opened in theaters.

7. Next week I'll try to go a whole TTT without mentioning anything Twilight related.

8. I want to go to Ben Franklin. There are some crafts I've been pondering, and I want to look at supplies.

9. I need a nail file, but I'm not sure if I want to get up.

10. I have music for Easter stuck in my head.

1. Currently watching the commentary for New Moon. I wonder if it'll be as good as Twilight, cause I'm not sure since none of the actors are in it.

2. The Eclipse movie poster was released today. So pretty.

3. Poor Dolly. She got bit by a spider, and had an allergic reaction. Dr. Frey gave her some antihistamine.

4. Antihistamine makes Dolly kind of sleepy. It's fun.

5. Gonna order a pair of Toms shoes. I've heard great things about how comfortable they are, and they're cool because every pair bought the company donates a pair to a child in need. One for one.

6. "Look at Romeo; kills his love out of sheer stupidity," I love that quote from Edward.

7. Hey Natalie, should I be a total nerd and re-read Twilight again?

8. I think yes.

9. If you guys can't tell, I absolutely love the Twilight series.

10. This ten things went pretty well. Thanks to twilight.

Ten Things Tuesday

1. I absolutely love my new hair. It's so fun.

2. The Twilight graphic novel is so pretty, and it was fun to read.

3. I wish it was the whole thing though and not just part one. It's stops just after the meadow.

4. New Moon is out on Saturday.

5. Last Twilight thing. Watched the Eclipse teaser trailer. I wish I could see more.

6. I really want to go camping. Might be going with Nat, Garrett, Connor, and Megan Memorial weekend.

7. I always do these so late in the day.

8. Watched a video Garrett put together of Connor's first 5 months. So cute.

9. Connor just may be the cutest thing ever.

10. That's it. I can't think of any more. This is all you get.

10 things tuesday

1. I love Hello Panda cookies. Natalie, you know what those are:)

2. Dolly smells like Advantage Multi flea treatment.

3. A lot of sweet things I used to love are too sweet now a days. I had chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting, but the frosting (which I used to love) I almost couldn't finish. This has been happening a lot lately.

4. I suppose it's technically a good thing that I'm losing my sweet tooth. I heard sugar's supposed to not be good for you or something.

5. I'm getting my hair colored on Thursday.

6. Ten days till New Moon DVD is out.

7. Vote for Connor. Because he is the cutest.

8. I hope I don't get called into work early tomorrow, but something tells me I will.

9. Two left and I'm stuck, so I'm going to cheat by including this as one of my thoughts.

10. Going to go read a review for a book I want.

Why I love Smart Mouths

I've mentioned it in my Ten Things Tuesday, but I feel the need to elaborate on what Smart Mouths really is. It's a podcast put together by a group of twenty-somethings who talk about what's going on in the world. What I love is that they are able to present the news in a format that's easy to understand, and is truly enjoyable. I don't watch really watch the news on tv, because there's nothing engaging about it. With Smart Mouths, even political discussions are interesting to listen to, which is certainly saying something. I hate politics. So often, discussions are so one sided, or they get way too personal. But Smart Mouths is able to have a discussion without their personal party affiliations getting in the way. They are able to have their views, but still recognize when something that someone does from their party is bogus. They don't automatically bash someone, or hero-worship someone, because of their party, they look at the situation and base their opinions on what the see and hear at the time. Smart Mouths podcast is news I can get behind, made by people like me, who aren't afraid to say what they think, but say it in a way that anyone can enjoy.

Blog Parade

1. What's your favorite time of the day, and why?
There are so many, but one is when Dolly is sleeping curled up against me. She's so calm and peaceful and not running crazily around the house:)
2. If health wasn't an issue, what food could you live off of?
I think I'm going to have to agree with my sister and say Starbucks, triple grande peppermint white mocha (two pumps of each syrup). So good. Or maybe citrus squeeze Jamba Juice. They have protein powder...
3. If you could have one wish granted (besides wishing for more wishes), what would it be?
Win the lottery (sorry Nat for stealing your answer again) so that I could do what I love without having to worry about money.
4. What's one thing that you get teased about a lot?
Every time I stub my toe. I do it a lot because I'm really not careful. Story of my life.
5. If you could choose one movie, book, or TV show to spend your life in, which would you pick? What type of character would you be?
I'd actually love to be in Cassandra Clare's world in the Mortal Instruments series. To live in New York (or the Glass City of the Shadowhunters) and have bad-ass demon fighting powers. Not to mention the fact that Vampires, Werewolves, Faeries, and Warlocks/Witches are all real.
6. If you could have one talent that you don't already have, what would it be?
The talent of not procrastinating.
7.If money were no object, where would you go on vacation.
If money is no object then I'm going to Europe. The whole thing.
8. If you were an awesome singer, which genre would you sing?
Jazz with a little blues.
9. If you could have a $10,000 shopping spree to one store, what would it be?
I dunno. Is there a store where I can get amazing clothes and good books in the same place?
10. If you could live in any point in time, when would it be?
I don't want to give up my freedoms as a woman, but there are a lot of lovely things about the past that I wouldn't mind experiencing.
11. If every outfit in your wardrobe had to be one color, what would it be?
Monochromatic isn't a good look for anyone. Do I get jeans? Well, I'd make the colored things green (the shade that looks on me)
12. If you were one of the seven dwarfs, which one would you be?(Doc, Grumpy, Sneezy, Sleepy, Bashful, Happy, or Dopey)
I have no idea. I'm a little bit of all of those. Can I just be Snow White? She's prettier.
13. What's the last album you listened to?
Joss Stone; Color me Free.
14. What's something we'd be surprised to know about you?
I'd actually really love to travel to India. I know there are some scary parts, but it also seems like an amazing place.

~~~Be real, be fun, and be you! In your party post, give us a glimpse into who you are--what your passions, interests, quirks, and traits are. The more we can relate to you, the more likely you are to get people returning to your blog for more! :)
