Ten on Thursday!

I'm doing 10 on Tuesday a little late!

1. How many blogs do you read every day and what are they? (I’m talking the ones you NEVER miss)

I don't read blogs daily anymore, as lately I've made the decision on nights when I get home from work to eat dinner & spend time with Ryan. But -- My consistent blogs I never miss is Lisa's!

2. How many “best friends” do you have? Do you have different “besties” for different areas of your life?
My best friend is my husband for sure. But I've never been one to have an exclusive "best friend". I'm more of a "lover of all"/"the more the merrier" type of person. I have people I'm close to at work, while I was in nursing scohol, and friends I keep in close touch with from when I lived in ND. My life is just on-the-move this past year and changing fast!

I also would have to say my Mom or Sister are my best girlfriends -- since they're people I trust so much and they are extremely near & dear to my heart!

3. What’s your daily make up routine?
I brush a little blush on my face, slap on some eye shadow, maybe put on a touch of mascera & eye liner (depending on my's crazy-super-allergy season here right now), put Carmex on my lips and call it a day!

Glamorous, huh? It's works for me though!
4. What is your ideal girl’s night?
Definitely a girl's night in. Wine, fun appetizers, chocolate covered strawberries, and lots of laughs!

5. Do you keep up with your nails/toenails or are they au natural?
I make sure my nails aren't too long for work - and place a coat of clear. And I paint my toenails prior to date-nights.

I also cannot wear nail polish on my fingernails. Last time I tried, it lasted a wopping 40 minutes? Even on my wedding day, I pleaded with the nail-lady we keep everything "clear" and simple!

6. What’s your best roommate story (assuming you had a roommate at some point in your life)?
One time at band camp...I had a room-mate who did not sleep. She literally sat on the edge of her bed all night long and just kind of stared at the wall. When I discovered this, I too, had a difficult time sleeping. It was extraordinarily creepy. My following years at band-camp...I made sure to make room-arrangements with friends from the previous years to avoid this creepiness.

My freshman room mate was a 19-year-old chronic alcoholic. Sometimes, I'd come into our room on Tuesday mornings between class - and she would be sitting on the floor with her friend taking shots of vodka. They would invite me to join, and I would explain that I had to go to anatomy lab.

After that, I moved into my sorority house -- where I had nice, normal, non-alcoholic roommates. More pleasant living environment!
7. What’s your “go to” outfit that you wear more than anything else?
Bright blue scrubs.

Or......right now I'm wearing these khaki shorts and a cute, striped, loose-fitted shirt. Or capris, cami, & 3/4 length cardigans.
8. Do you have a beauty secret?
Exercise, spending a little time in the sun, staying hydrated, & 7+ hrs of sleep.

Also, my new routine is to put wet washclothes in the freezer and then place over my eyes when I fall asleep.

9. Did you read Seventeen magazine growing up?
I sure did!
10. How did you learn to put on makeup?
I taught myself. Hence why I'm not a big make-up-person. I think it makes me look like a clown.

When I taught myself how to put on make up...I also decided to teach myself how to pluck my own eyebrow @ age 13. Not a good idea. They never really grew back to normalcy....

Who knew we'd both consider each other a best friend? I never saw that coming. Mom gets her 'i told you so' moment. ;)

We are def very similar when it comes to make up, etc. :)

And I totally forgot about your college roommate. Eeks!

I never learned how to do make-up from my Mom hence I couldn't pass on a talent I didn't have! Oh, well!
I count myself blessed that you consider me a "best friend"!!!!

I'm the same way with makeup! My Mom and older sister never really wore it, so I never really wore it either until more recently. Now, in the mornings, I always feel like I have no idea what I'm doing...and I keep it simple. Mascara and a little eye shadow is about all I'm capable of!

I have been bad too lately about keeping up on reading blogs. I get a little bit at night after Elle goes to bed but usually I have laundry to go fold or lunch to pack. I have to say I am looking forward to only having to work for four more weeks and then I'm off for the summer.

That is crazy about your dorm roommate. Sounds like Lisa's situation. Good heavens.

Hope the camping trip went well. We def need to head to Tucson this summer and meet up for dinner. Lets arrange that!
