Ten on Tuesday

1. What is your cleaning style like?
Umm....can one have a "cleaning style"? Maybe I'm unsure how to answer this because I'm not much of a cleaner. I do have a trend I like to follow if I can. On Fridays I spend most of the day doing all of the laundry, cleaning the kitchen, wiping down all surfaces in the kitchen & living room, sweeping & vacuuming. This way when the weekend comes I feel much more relaxed and feel like it's ok to just sit around with my family since I don't have those things to do.
2. What is your favorite thing to add to an outfit to take it from casual to classy?
Definitely jewelry. I am a huge fan of white t-shirt & jeans with fun jewelry to kick it up a notch. My clothes usually don't have much going on. I'm not much for patterns, bright colors, etc. So I definitely spice up my outfits with big earrings, cute rings & fun necklaces.
3. Do you like stormy weather?
It's ok I guess. We had quite the storm where I live yesterday morning & I kept thinking, "Man, this would be such a perfect morning to lie in bed and do nothing." but of course, that's not an option for me with 3 little ones running around. Don't get me wrong. I'm certainly not complaining. I guess I'm what I'm trying to say is, no. I don't like stormy weather because I can't lie in bed & do nothing and my kids & I go crazy when we're locked in the house. We like to be outside.
4. What is your favorite cold treat on a hot day?
Love some frozen lemonade on a hot day!
5. What is your favorite warm treat on a cold day?
I love sipping hot chocolate in the winter & I love a cup of coffee too.
6. Who is your favorite animated character?
For real? (off the subject of the animated character: this is the most random set of questions ever.) I really don't know that I have an answer to this. I'm not a big animated character fan I guess? I definitely don't want them on any of my kids' stuff. Nothing against them or the people who like that sort of thing. It's just not for me. You won't find any Winnie the Pooh blankets or Mickey Mouse t-shirts in my household.
7. What do you keep your jewelry in?
Funny. I used to throw everything in plastic bins & bowls in my bathroom cabinets until my husband brought out a huge mess of tangled necklaces & earrings for a bunch of people to see one time, and I vowed to never let it get to that point again. I now keep my jewelry in one of those hanging organizers with lots of different clear pockets.
8. Do any of the rooms in your house have a theme? Nope. I'm not an animated character person and I'm not a theme person.
9. Do you watch any interior design TV shows - if so, what is your favorite?
I really enjoy interior design TV shows. I don't have a lot of spare time to watch them though. I used to love Trading Spaces back in it's "glory days". I really like HGTV's Next Design Star. And I love anything Candice Olson does. Divine Design...goodness! She is good!
10. When was the last time you did something risk-taking?
For some reason all I can think of when I read this question is when I went on a mission trip to Africa a few years ago. Sure, I've taken risks since then...probably pretty big ones too. But this one was just such a huge step of faith for me. I'd never been on a mission trip. I'd never been out of the US (besides tourist trips to all-inclusive resorts in Mexico, that doesn't really count). It was literally one of those things God just said, "Go". And I went. And boy did it change my life forever. You can click here if you want to read more about it.

Thanks Jessica! It was really a lot of fun. I was nervous that I would be a stress case but she made it so relaxed & easy! Good luck tomorrow!

Your pics on MckMamas were so precious. Ok, this is going to sound strange... but did you guys stay at a hotel in Houston Friday night. I swear I met your girls at the pool yesterday morning. But maybe I am crazy.

Hollie, we didn't stay at a hotel on Friday night. So it wasn't us at the pool. Although I would have loved to have been hanging out at a hotel pool yesterday! :)
