Ten on Tuesday (27)

This week’s questions were provided by Courtney at Practicing Patience. Go visit her and thank her for her questions.

1.  What two cities should be moved closer together?
Houston and Orlando – I’d like to be able to go to Disney World whenever I want! The cost of tickets is so high that when you add a plane ticket and hotel, it’s just not possible. Or maybe Houston and New York. I’d love to be able to spend a weekend in New York to see a show or go to a fancy restaurant.

2. What was the first plane ride you took? 
I honestly have no idea. I imagine it was to Colorado at some point in my childhood. We go there every few years. Nine times out of ten, we drive… but I’m sure there were times that we flew. I have no idea. How sad is that?! I’m not the type of person that is scared of flying so it didn’t make an impact on me.

3. What continent would you most like to visit? 
Europe. There are so many places I’d like to go. If only I had a bottomless bank account and oodles of vacation time!

4. What’s your favorite place to window-shop?
I love just being at The Container Store. It makes me happy. I also love Williams Sonoma, Target, Hobby Lobby… and I’m sure I could think of a million other places after I read y’all’s answers.

5. What’s the least fun you’ve ever had at a place specifically tailored for fun?
The first thing that comes to mind is one of the worst nights of my life. I went to the movies to see The Dark Knight and got the worst migraine of my life. I was in the middle of the row and we were there with several other people. I didn’t feel like I could just get up and walk out. Plus I was nervous that if I started walking, I’d vomit everywhere. So I sat through a loud, flashy movie and thought, “Don’t throw up. Don’t throw up. Don’t throw up.” FOR THE ENTIRE 17 HOURS OF THE MOVIE!

6.  You’re stuck on an island with plenty of food, a companion, and a relatively stress-free lifestyle. What do you say when the rescue ship comes? 
I say, “Come here companion. Let’s board this ship and go back to civilization and the internet.”

7. Which day of the week do you look forward to most? 
Saturdays. I love Saturdays. I (usually) don’t have to set my alarm, I can be productive, I don’t have to go to work, I don’t have a bedtime. Do I need to go on?

8. What’s your favorite place to enjoy the great outdoors? 
The beach. The beach. The beach. I LOVE the beach. I love the sand and the sun and the sound of the waves. I love a cold beverage and a good book. I love it all!

9. What’s on your “to do” list this summer? 
Summer doesn’t have the same meaning as it did in school. Now it’s just the same as the rest of the year, only hotter. Much hotter. But during this hot season that is just like any other season, I will be getting my life ready for this baby. We’ll be nesting. We’ll decorate the nursery, have showers, read some What The Heck To Do With A Baby books, and try not to freak out. Don’t worry, you’ll be there for the whole thing.

10. Which natural disaster freaks you out the most?
The only natural disaster the directly affects me is hurricanes. (I seriously stared at that sentence for like 5 minutes. “is hurricanes” or “are hurricanes”?? Don’t worry, I will not home school my kids.) I’m sure I’d be scared of tornadoes if they came in my area, or blizzards if it actually got cold here, or whatever else. But for me… just hurricanes.

Your turn. Hopefully I’ll be able to visit this week.
