10 on the 10th - Random Facts About Me

Today I'm joining the fun over at Perfectly Port Family for 10 on the 10th Link-Up.  This month we're talking about 10 Random Facts About You.  So let me share 10 things about yours truly ~

I love taking pictures.  Like, really LOVE taking pictures.  Just ask my family and friends.  Last year I finally got the camera of my dreams (HERE).  Now I really want to figure out all the bells and whistles and take my pictures to the next level.

I’m not a fan of water, coffee or beer – three of the most common things to drink.  I wish I liked them and I’ve tried to like them, but I just don’t. 

If I’m channel surfing and come across Pretty Woman, the search for something to watch is over.  I’ll stop changing channels immediately and watch the rest of this movie.

One of my favorite TV shows is Married at First Site.  It’s like getting a free counseling session with each episode

If I won the lottery, Eric and I would surprise our son and daughter-in-law with a trip to Italy and our nieces and nephews with a trip to Disney World.  I would love to share those experiences with them!  Oh, and I would also buy a million pairs of shoes!

If a recipe calls for whisking or zesting, it makes me feel like a true cook. 

We currently have no pets in our house.  We lost our golden retriever, Daisy, about three years ago.  Even though we miss her dearly, we are just not home enough to justify getting a new dog.  There are moments when I miss her so much!

One of my favorite things is coming home and having the bed made.  I honestly hardly ever make it myself because most of the time Eric doesn’t start work as early as I do, so he’s still in bed when I’m leaving.  When I walk in the bedroom and he’s made the bed, it really does make me have a warm and fuzzy feeling.

One of my dreams is to attend a live taping of either Ellen or The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. 

Receiving a heart-felt thank you for doing something special for someone melts my heart.  I’m not going to lie, half the time I do special things just to receive the praise at the end.  Is that bad?!? 


  1. Thanks so much for linking up! I love a made bed too. I also am a words of affirmation girl so number 10 I totally get! Thanks so much for linking up! xoxo ERIN

  2. LOVE Pretty Woman! Great list.

  3. Great list! I love a made bed too!

  4. It's always fun to dream about what you would do with the money if you won a million dollars. :) I love drinking ice cold water, but I don't drink coffee or alcohol at one in my house drinks coffee, so we don't own a coffee maker, and surprisingly I've gotten a lot of comments from guests--"What? No coffee maker? Really?"

  5. This is so much fun! I love learning more about you! You should try to find a local class that will help you learn more about your camera. I actually saw some advertised through my local library! I don't like beer or water either... I only do sweet coffees!

  6. I love this! I just saw this link up on some other blogs and wish I had seen it sooner! I might do it anyway ;) Anyway, my husband doesn't drink coffee, so I totally understand that! He does tea. I would love to attend a taping of Ellen too. That would be amazing!
    Coffee Until Cocktails

  7. Awww I loved reading his and getting to know you a bit better, Penny <3 I can understand and appreciate that you don’t want to bring in a dog because neither of you are home enough to take care of it. I think it’s hard for pets to not have that kind of stimulation from their owners—and they are a lot of work!

    I love Ellen. And Jimmy. Would love to go to their taping, too!! Haven’t been to one since Bethenney Frankel had that short-term talk show (I love her!).

    No coffee!? That’s unfortunate. Though I can’t drink beer either, so I get it! Xo

  8. Seeing a live taping of Ellen would be a lot of fun :)

  9. Ooh seeing Ellen live would be absolutely amazing. I'd really like to see Stephen Colbert and/or James Corden too! I don't drink coffee either, and I don't drink alcohol at all so no beer for me. I DO drink water, but I'm so bad at getting the amount you need everyday. Sigh.


  10. Not bad to do something for the praise if that means someone got help :)

  11. I'll drink water but I agree with you on the coffee and beer. Blech!!

    I'm going to need to do these link ups, how fun!!

  12. Ooh, a live taping with Ellen would be awesome. I went to Live with Kelly and Ryan and it was pretty fun! I love the Disney trip idea!

  13. Your sweet email of thanks to me warmed my heart. A simple thank you can really make a person's day.

    Yay for beds that are made. I make mine every day except Saturday. My PC tells me it is our day off from everything, including bed-making.

    We were daydreaming about winning the lottery over here but never even played. Now that would be a miracle! We'd give everyone 5 million dollars of our over $340 million prize. If only...

  14. I really like your second topic about coffee and bears. I realty your idea about coffee drinks types. Thanks for sharing us perfect port family's
