Ten Things On 10-10-10

I know the whole wide online world has done 10-10-10 themes all day, but since this day only happens once in my lifetime I’m doing it too :)

Ten Things I Did on 10-10-10:

1. Walked to the store to get eggs for breakfast. I love the stamps on Eggland’s Best eggs in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

2. Made an egg scramble with leeks. My thoughts while eating…

“Are you kidding me, how did I live without leeks for so long?!”

“Do other people know about leeks?”

“Should I start a fan club in their honor?!”

Leeks are my new love.

3. I sampled this new (to me) bar. It wasn’t worth the $1.00 sale price.

4. Followed along on the progress of my friends running the Chicago Marathon via twitter and text message updates. Everyone did amazing!!!

9. Made a massive smoothie for dinner…

Updated to add: I poured the chia seeds in the blender instead of measuring them and added a TON! It gave the smoothie a nutty flavor and grainy texture that I loved :)

with a side of gnocci (and more cereal added as the meal progressed).

4. Go on an African safari

5. Make sure everyone I love knows I love them

6. Climb a mountain. I’ve done Half Dome and am ready for another challenge!

7. Make enough money to buy Ben something really fancy.

8. Have a baby

9. Get Ben to stop liking Chevy Chase so much. Creepy creeperson.

10. Think of better things to put on my blog besides bullshit Top 10 lists, so I get more readers, friends and blends :)

10.5. Become a wine connoisseur

Top Ten Things You Should Know About Me:

1. I like my name – Monica Melinda Olivas

2. I have 2 brothers – one is 3 years apart from my age the other is 17!

3. My BFF and I have two completely different lives and despite our different paths have managed to stay close since 1st grade :)

4. I call Ben “Grizz” because he’s like a big ol’ Grizzly Bear

5. I say too many bad words. On second thought, you shouldn’t know that because I’m trying to change it.

6. I am obsessed with the backs of knees. I love the back of other people’s knees and always compare mine. A good back of knee should look like a manta ray.

7. When I was in college I decided I needed to go to therapy for disordered eating. So, I got out my medical card and found a therapist. I never talked to anyone about it before hand. Nope. Just decided that’s what I was going to do. It’s one of the best things I’ve ever done.

8. I have one tattoo.

9. I am the worst singer ever. Ever.

10. If I were a guy I think I’d look like a cross between Shaun White

and Zack Galifianakis.

      I need to try leeks! What do you do with them? How can they be cooked? I don’t even know what they look like…I MUST google. BRB.

  2. griselda says

    I LOVE your posts! :) I did not see a speck of chia seeds though…If I was the opposite sex I would look like Christian Chavez from RBD. Partly because he smiles a lot and is really goofy like me! Have a great night!

  3. says

    I just love you. :) I didn’t know you had a tattoo! I’m actually planning to get one in a few weeks! I think I just loved you even more with this post. :)

  4. says

    I don’t think I have ever looked at the back of my knee!

    What do leeks taste like – I was looking at them in the grocery store the other day and wondering if I have ever had them!

  5. says

    If I were a boy I’d look like Justin Bieber. The back of my knees are probably covered in cellulite.
    I have such a weird crush on Zack Galifinakis.

  6. says

    Leeks are delicious! I just never know how to use them. If I were a celebrity I think I would look like the Olsen Twins, but Full House era not now. And my knees look nothing like a manta ray. At least I don’t think they do. I’ll have the husband check it out when he gets home.

  7. Ella says

    thats too funny – my best friend a couple of months ago said she had a thing for women’s knees. i’ll be sure to pass the word along that she’s not the only one…according to her i have great knees apparently, i’m not too sure about the back!

    and if i were a male celebrity i’d look like brad pitt. just kidding. i’m not sure really. i get told i look like mischa barton a lot (5’10, lanky, blondeish hair and awkward lol), i have no idea who her male counterpart would be.

  8. says

    What marathon did you sign up for?

    I want to be a wine connoisseur too. We love wine tasting and I try to practice being a connoisseur but really I just want to drink the wine. 😉

  9. says

    I used one of those “celebrity lookalike” websites once where you upload a photo of yourself and my closest match (male or female) was Andy Roddick, so I guess I would look even more attractive as a male ’cause he’s not too shabby.
