Linking up with one of my wonderful sponsors, Amy of The Charming Blog, for this month’s 10 on 10.

  1. All time favorite band? This is tricky. My music tastes have changed a bit over the years. Um, for sheer longevity of fan-ness, I’d have to go with either Ben Folds (Five) or Duncan Sheik. Or Cake.
  2. Do you subscribe to any magazine? If so, what? Yup, two. Time, and Taste of Home.
  3. What state do you live in? Texas.
  4. Fashion: How do you feel about brown and black together? Generally a no-no for me. Particularly darker browns with black – ick. If it’s more of a tan/khaki kind of brown, that’s totally fine, though.
  5. What blog(s) do you absolutely love reading? Every Day is a New Adventure, I Pick Pretty, and Yes & Yes.
  6. What is the best movie you have seen lately? Luckily I have a handy list to refer to my recent viewings, aha! Probably the one I would consider the best is We Bought a Zoo. The Hunger Games was also up there. Both of those were a little bit ago, though. I wasn’t really impressed with the new Batman movie.
  7. Have you ever been on a cruise? Yup, three of them so far. Good times. I definitely recommend Caribbean ones.
  8. Are you an early bird or a night owl? Night owl, hands down. I am so not a morning person.
  9. Have you ever had a bad date? Oh man, yes. I did some rounds of online dating back in the days before Ian (who I also met through online dating) and let me just say there were some particular un-gems in that group. And actually my first date ever in 7th or 8th grade was pretty terrible.
  10. What is your favorite quote? All-time favorite? No idea. But here’s one I’m loving right now: “There is always an element of risk in love, just as there is always a certain amount of effort required to pursue or maintain it. The important thing to remember is that it is always worth it.” – Leo Buscaglia

Happy Friday to everyone! I don’t have much planned this weekend other than a happy hour with friends tonight. What are you all up to?
