The Ten: Things That Sparkle

I am pretty excited to bring you this week’s “Ten” with Alex! Alex is the blogger behind Things That Sparkle and has one of the most gorgeous apartments in Chicago I’ve seen! Definitely check it out after you’ve read her ten.

Considering I am the world’s most offensive dancer… the answer should be no music. But sadly, if I’ve had a couple cocktails I’ll get up and dance to any fun oldies or Motown music!

My absolute favorite books are by Nelson Demille. They are exciting, and even somewhat educational. Or at least they seem like they are.

Love Actually. I am such a sucker for romance. And the holidays. Love every single bit of it all!

Pizza. Except, I am willing to admit it. Its just a little out of control. There is nothing that will stop me. I am recently lactose intolerant, so now my pizza is usually cheese-less or with goat cheese. I am happy as long as there is crust and toppings. I am shameless.

I actually really love this one. You are able to connect with so many amazing people through new technologies like blogs and Twitter. There is a lot of nostalgia for times that have past. And we are able to learn from the mistakes before us, and take inspiration from the successes.

This is really out there, but its the first thing that came to me. Abe Lincoln. He’s from my home state and got to be president during a period of time where so much was changing. He would have so much insight on politics today.

Something fabulous. I don’t even know what it would be. I am already known for my chicken sausage/pasta speciality and its one I am ok with for now!

Make sure to check out Things That Sparkle

And have a wonderful Friday!
