ten things // 53

In this week's Ten Things, we get ten random questions from Chelsea herself. Link up with Chelsea at Roots and Rings, and check out the rest of my "ten things" answers here.

1. What did you do this weekend?
On Friday night, we stayed in and watched the West Wing. And we made brownies. On Saturday, Mike made me breakfast. Then he went over to a friend's house and I waited for Mom and Tommy to come pick me up. Then we navigated our way up to New York. We met Dad at at our cousin's house, ate, changed, and then went to the funeral home for the first wake from 7 to 9. Then I went back to my Grandma's house, talked to Mike, ate a sandwich, and fell asleep. On Sunday, I slept in and drove to the funeral home with Aunt Boo, Mom, Tommy, and Grandma. We waked Aunt Frances from 2 to 5 and then went across the street and ate a huge meal at Nora's (I mean, everyone!), and then we came back to the wake from 7 to 9. When we got back to Grandma's we made some tea and watched the Oscars. That was basically my weekend. (Psst - thanks for all your prayers and thoughfulness!)

2. Do you prefer short fingernails or long fingernails?
I like short nails.

3. What is your favorite use for Pinterest?
Cataloging my ideas :) I use it for recipes, wedding planning, style ideas, and a million other things. I love that everything's all in one very easy to use place.

4. Do you sleep with your mouth open?
I certainly don't intend to, but I think I do. I have to when I wear my nightguard because it's so big.

5. Where did you have the best pizza you’ve ever eaten?
At Gino's in Elmhurst.

6. What do you eat for breakfast on weekdays?
I rarely eat breakfast on the weekdays :-/ But when I do, it's usually a bowl of cereal, or dry cereal. At this moment I'm drinking a slim-fast shake of some sort.

7. Do you watch awards shows? Why or why not?
I don't watch much TV, and I don't make it a point to watch awards shows. If they're on because someone else is watching, I'll watch them. I used to watch awards shows with Grandma all the time, when I was little and when I lived with her during college. I like to see what people wear.

8. Can you whistle? Snap? Curl your tongue? Bend down and touch your palms to the ground?
Whistle: Yes.
Snap: Yes, with both hands.
Curl my tongue: Nope.
Bend down and touch my palms to the ground: Ha. No way. I could do this when I ran track in college, but I haven't since then. It hurts.

9. What email service do you use?
Gmaaaaaaail. I think I have a rocketmail account somewhere too. And I guess Outlook, for work.

10. What is your favorite outdoor activity?
I couldn't possibly pick a favorite. I love walking and running. I like to play pick-up baseball and volleyball with family. I love to play bocce. I like the beach but I don't really sun myself very much because look at me - I'm pale as a ghost. I burn. When I lived in Florida I used to love to boogie-board. Really I just like being outside. I'll sit on a chair and read or think if it means being outside.
