I actually have to wash my makeup brushes today because I haven’t washed them since before I left for the hospital seven weeks ago.

[WOW!]

Yeah! But I haven’t been wearing a lot of makeup, and it’s weird — when you don’t wear a lot, you kind of get used to it. I mean, the other day I did full-on makeup, like foundation, concealer, brows, eyes, cheeks, lips — the whole kit and caboodle — and when I looked in the mirror, I was just like, “Who is this girl?”

Maybe I’m just used to seeing myself looking really tired…

Today I wanted to try another look with the Chanel Summer 2016 collection I mentioned yesterday. I’ve used all of the products so far, but there’s a green eyeshadow in the eyeshadow quad I really want to play with.

Also, in baby-related stuff, because a baby runs my life these days, I need to figure out how to collapse her stroller so I can get it in and out of my Mazda. And unlike my dad and my husband, I will actually read the instruction booklet instead of standing there for two hours grumbling, “I can’t figure this thing out!”

I do also plan to do some weekend-y stuff, like maybe rent a movie and leave the house at some point… Whatever you’re doing, I hope it’s fun. Good luck in the giveaway. πŸ™‚

Man…sometimes the weeks blur together, don’t they? I swear it was just April Fool’s Day, and now it’s already the middle of the month!

Weird.

Rise and shine, morning glory! πŸ™‚ Would you mind filling in for me and preparing my feline employer’s morning gravy while I take a quick shower? Everything you need is in the kitchen. Just use the ceramic blue and white polka-dotted serving bowl (it’s his favorite).

How’s everything going this morning? What are you doing today…other than entering the giveaway right now?

So. Much. Baby jail right meow.

I hope you’ve done some exciting things this week that you’d be so kind as to graciously share with me because I’m serious — the highlight of my days usually involves a quick shower OR a quick 30-minute emergency sneak away trip to Pier 1, See’s Candies (I’ve eaten about two pounds of chocolate this month), Marshalls, Old Navy or Target, during which time El Hub will watch the baby, because those stores are close to home.

Those little daily jaunts, plus the MBB interns and Netflix, have been my only breaks, as of late, when I’m not attending to Connor Claire.

It just gets a tad monotonous is all, and by “tad,” I mean ridiculously monotonous, LOL!

Thank goodness for the MBB interns. Those ladies are incredibly talented, aren’t they? Have you been following their posts? These have been some of my faves…

Their styles and perspectives are all so different, too. It’s refreshing.

In other news…it’s giveaway time. πŸ™‚

Every day is a new adventure around here. Just when I think I’ve figured something out, like a good routine to get Connor Claire fed and soothed to sleep for a couple of hours at a time, nope! — something new happens.

She was so fussy last night. Not even Uncle Tabby’s amazing nanny services could soothe her. She was incorrigible… Now watch her sleep all day long today, LOL!

Rise and shine, morning glory! Happy Caturday!

That reminds me… I bet you probably realize by now that yesterday was April Fool’s Day. Sadly, this means that the grand opening of the new Novato Cat Cafe & Cosmetics has been delayed. πŸ™‚

In other news, I got out of the cave/house for two whole hours yesterday, and it was glorious! My parents visited and offered to watch Connor, so El Hub and I sneaked away to the mall. We got coffee, See’s candy and window shopped like real grownup people! It was the most exciting thing I’ve done in a month.

I cannot believe it’s Easter weekend! I swear, I remember driving around to look at Christmas lights. Seems like that was just a couple weeks ago…

Rise and shine, morning glory! Despite my unreadiness for it, it is almost Easter. Are you going to church? Brunch? Are there mimosas in your future? Inquiring minds want to know.

Since this is Excitement Central over here, I’ll be spending Easter with a baby and a breast pump and my butt glued in a Pier One floral-printed chair (which Tabs mistakenly claims as his own) while re-watching Dawson’s Creek on Hulu.

Yup, it’s a thrill a minute!

Have a wonderful holiday, my friend. Good luck in the Easter egg hunt, and please save me a few jellybeans. πŸ™‚
