Study Break: Ten on Tuesday & Giveaway Alert

Taking a study break from my crazzzzy day to bring you my Ten on Tuesday and giveaway alerts! Most of which y'all probably already know about, I'm just out of the loop ;)

First - Ten on Tuesday with Roots and Rings! I love this link up. I never know what the questions are going to be. It's exciting.

1. What is the worst compliment you have ever received?
That my haircut made me look younger. I'm pretty sure these days I'm trying to look older, people! Not like a six-year-old.

2. Did you/would you tell everyone the name of your baby before they were born, keep it a secret, or not choose until after they were born?
I would probably keep two in mind and if people really wanted to know, I would share it with them.  I definitely want to keep the gender a surprise though...as Momma says, that's one of the only true surprises in life. And I love surprises :)

3. What is your favorite candle smell?
Apple/Cinnamon/Spice...a mixture of those. YUM!

4. What is the best birthday/Christmas gift you received when you were pregnant or the best birthday/Christmas gift you gave a pregnant person that was really appreciated?
I am not and have not ever been pregnant, but I guess I have given a pregnant person gift before, I just can't think of what it was. Right now I would probably give them a gift certificate to the spa! I mean, who wouldn't want that.

5. Who was your favorite teacher?
This is a toughie. I would rather pick my favorite teacher from each level of school! In elementary school, I was lucky enough to get awesome teachers each year. My favorite was probably 5th grade, though...Mrs. Bradley! We still keep in touch today, although she has since moved to Missouri.

6. What is the best game/activity you have ever played at a baby shower?
Not sure why these are all baby related...but, I have only been to probably two baby showers. I don't remember them too well. I always like guessing the baby's birthday/weight/height/gender/etc. That's fun!

7. What was your major in college and did you end up using it in your career?
I am currently majoring in Human Development. I better use it in my career! I know I ain't walking across this big 'ol campus for nothing.

8. What is a beauty product you swear by?
Mascara to look awake [on days like this] and classic Chapstick. Can't go wrong.

9. What is the kindest thing a stranger has ever done for you?
I don't know?! The thing that comes to mind didn't happen to me, but I did witness it.  While I was waiting for the Megabus in the rain, there was only one small tent for people to stand under.  It was, of course full, and thankfully I had my umbrella.  As people started walking up without umbrellas, there was one guy under the tent who kept coming out with umbrellas to let those people borrow.  He didn't work for Megabus either - just had some extras!  It was really nice.

10. If you could recommend one new baby necessity, what would it be?
Oooomg I do not have a baby.  I have heard of the new monitors though that have a video camera so you can actually see the baby? That's awesome.

SO y'all need to check out these awesome giveaways!
Coffee at Nordstrom is hosting a Monogram Chick giveaway! An adorable monogrammed recipe box. So cute!!

And...Emily at Life of Emily! is hosting a Marley Lilly giveaway!! I cannot get enough of Marley Lilly, they have the cutest stuff in the world. You can win either a scarf or pashmina!

Monogram. Obsessed. No big deal.

Back to studying...weekend recap is up next :)
