Ten on Tuesday

I was going to do a post today about staying healthy when you are INSANELY busy, but ironically, I didn't have time lol. Someday...

I was sucked into Ten on Tuesday this week by Lisa, I love reading hers every Tuesday!

1. What would the title of your autobiography be?

I'm terrible at coming up with names like this...Eric came up with some funny ones many of which you wouldn't get or would involve me telling the name of my town haha...others included:

Kelly: My Favorite Color is Pink

Around the World in 26 Years

2. What’s the funniest thing you’ve ever heard a child say or seen him/her do?

There is no possible way I could tell you the funniest thing- at least one hilarious this happens per day in my life. Today's funny comments included:

#1- a dentist came to visit my classroom (don't ask) and asked the kids why we have teeth. One of the kids from my friend's class said "to get money" lol...obviously!

#2- I have a little boy this year who has 2 older brothers, one is in middle school and one is in college. The one in college is the NICEST brother ever literally. He was a "secret reader" for our class on his SPRING BREAK, and constantly plays with his kindergarten brother. Anyway, his other brother is more of a typical middle school student. So today, the boy in my class is telling a story about his brother and instead of using his name he goes, "I was playing the other day with my mean brother..." I did a triple take and then had to keep from laughing out loud.

3. What is your favorite kids game to play?

Right now I like Uno the best. I turn games like Uno, Memory, Go Fish, Old Maid into reading games for the kids I tutor, so the games I like are directly related to how much time during tutoring they occupy- also I like Uno because it involves strategy but not TOO much thinking- like Memory, wayyyy too much thinking!

4. If you got invited to a potluck BBQ tomorrow, what would you bring?

Ha, interesting since I am invited to a potluck End of the Year Party tomorrow. I am bringing some cookies from Trader Joes. If I wasn't assigned to dessert I'd most likely bring drinks haha. Yup, slacker, that's me!

5. If your ears are pierced, how old were you when you got your ears pierced?

5th grade. Earrings are the piece of jewelry I am most likely to be wearing although I seem to be on a bracelet kick right now, including silly bands which the kids seem to be giving me more and more of each day.

6. If you were celebrating your 30th anniversary, where would you want to go?

Ooo somewhere cool...maybe Italy? C'mon we made it 30 years, we deserve it!

7. What one blogger would you love to meet and why? And what would you want to plan to do with them?

Ooo I'd love to meet so many bloggers, basically anyone who's blog I read. I think if I met Amber we could probably do nothing and just laugh for a couple of hours straight haha. I'm always up for frozen yogurt/ice cream dates though...

8. On a scale from 1-10, how good at you at home decor? (Pictures welcome.)

Um 0. Haven't we established I leave this to my mom? Now...dorm room decor however is another story. It was the highlight of the move in process to get to redecorate a dorm room each September!

9. Do you have good fingernails?

Yes I do actually. Not to toot my own horn lol.

10. Pickles: Dill or sweet? Baby, spears, or chips? Plain or on a burger?

I hate hate hate pickles. I truly think that might be my top hated food. Sorry pickle lovers.

Now I'm back to making DVD copies of my kindergarten slide show for the kiddos. Of COURSE technology is hating me so it's taking twice as long as it should. Going to be a happy girl on Thursday night let me tell you. Until the reality of my wedding being in a little over 3 weeks hits. Oh boy!


  1. You could meet me almost anytime you like. :-) Maybe we'll have to do a blogger meet up this summer.

  2. fun fun fun post. I love your kid stories. I kinda like the ear pierced question cause it tells a good story. First holes - age 10. double digits. big step. second holes - age 14. begged my parents. so happy they let me. third holes - age 18. parents wouldn't allow (overkill?!) nah. i love my third holes. and last but not least the cuff. got that done with my best guy friend - we were probably 19 or so. aww memory lane right there.

  3. I think the title of your autobiography should be the title of the post from the other day: Pink is my favorite crayon....Do I get credit from knowing the song it's from?

  4. You have the best quotes from kids! I love reading about the things your students say.

    Good luck with your slide show and your many other to-dos. What a busy time for you!

  5. Fun list! LOL at the dentist/money comment!

  6. I loved that "mean brother" story. So cute and funny!

  7. man as a a kid I LOVED memory I was soo good...or um my parents just weren't paying attention

  8. Bahahahaha. I'm POSITIVE we would laugh for hours straight since I am constantly laughing-out-loud at your blog posts!

    And you DO have good fingernails! I've noticed that in pictures you've posted of your hands. You should share your secret :P

  9. HATE pickles?!?! WHAT?! Crazy lady. I am addicted. In a bad way, so salty!!! The dill ones at least.
    So you are like me and you leave your house decor up to your mom? Yeah, my mom was nice enough to hire a decorator for me, that was our house warming gift. Not bad right? We needed this lady big time.
    I LOVED Old Maid as a kid. Good choice :)

  10. The other day, my friend Daniells's 5 years old daughter asked her "Mom, was a A Reptile Defunction" after a viagra commercial came on. WAY TOO FUNNT!!!
