Ten on Tuesday

I'm taking a break from the 30 Blogs challenge today to partake in the 10 on Tuesday!

Before I go on, let me tell you -- last night was not fun!!!! I had my "New Employee Health Screening" yesterday. I received a multitude of vaccines and blood draws. I was a little off to start with - I had a low grade fever and a blood pressure of 78/50. Eeek.

Once I laid down for bed - I started feeling horrible and it only escalated. I had a fever of 102.4, and my heart was racing like mad! Not a fun night. Feeling better today! But wow! Never will I get that many shots in one "shot" again!

Alright, 10 on Tuesday!

1. Who makes your Thanksgiving dinner?

When we go home, my Mom does! And she does a darn good job at it, too! Last year Ryan & I did our 1st Thanksgiving dinner -- and it was a team effort.

2. What is your favorite recipe the includes pumpkin? (bonus points for including the recipe)
Hmmm...I always love good ole, traditional pumpkin pie! Or the home-made Pumpkin Latte I posted about back in September.
3. What are 5 things you want for Christmas?
I haven't even thought about this..but here are a few things:
1. A Mortar and Pestle
2. Pastry Frame Set
3. Salad Spinner (for those family members who know the infamous story of "wedding registry argument heard around the world" -- I still haven't gotten my salad spinner. I have faith Ryan will come through this Xmas)
4. Dr. Scholls Heat & Massage Foot-spa
5. Probably a gift card to Target -- (due to my inability to think of anything else I want)
4. Does your family draw names or do you buy for everyone?
We always drew names - but now only a few do it since the family is getting so big!
5. How do you feel about motorcycles?
I dislike them! During my ICU/Trauma rotation..I saw WAY too many young people lose their life because of motorcycles.

6. What’s your favorite thing to do on a rainy Saturday?
Slow cook a stew or a roast, sip coffee or tea, and bake bread while watching a chick-flick.
7. What is the coolest thing to do in your city?
Enjoy all the beautiful hiking trails. Tucson has many to chose from! And visiting Mount Lemmon which is a 20-degree difference (cooler, of course). It has a cute little town/village on the top called "SummerHaven". They hold Oktoberfest every fall. It's adorable.
8. Do you paint your fingernails?
No. Whenever I try to paint them, I will be peeling it off (yes, peeling it off) within 10 minutes!
9. Who is your favorite actor over the age of 50?
Mel Gibson. I love me an angry, verbally abusive, psychopath.

Just kidding....

Definitely Harrison Ford. He is dreamy.
10. Do you have a high school letter jacket?

Hell to the no. Yuck!

Oh wow, you had quite the day yesterday! Your bp was so so so low! Yikes! Hope you are good as new today.

Had to laugh about the salad spinner... I really hope you get one. I bought one for myself last summer and LOVE it. :)

A salad spinner is a must in a kitchen!

Paul has a mortar and pestle "collection." I think he has six different sets. I gave him one for Christmas years ago (it is the one he now uses all the time). I was so excited for him to open it. We had Paul's family here for Christmas that year. When he opened it, they were all like "What is that?" Not every one understands how necessary a mortar and pestle is in the kitchen.

Hope you are feeling better!
