Greetings from the seaside! I’m literally a hop, skip and a jump away from the Monterey Bay right now. I woke up this morning to the song sound of screeching seagulls outside my window because El Hub and I decided to take one lash hurrah trip before Baby Girl comes, so we drove down to Monterey a few hours south of us and left Tabs to man the office with his team of pet sitters.

I hope your 2016 got off to a good start. Oh! — some housekeeping things. First of all, you wanna enter this giveaway, because it’s the first one of the year, and you know what they say about that: “The first one is always the luckiest.”

Actually…I don’t know if that’s something they say…but I still haven’t picked a winner for this week’s mega super $250 mystery makeup giveaway yet, so the winner could still be you. Stay tuned. When I get back from my trip, I’ll assist Tabs with that.

OK, the smell of decaf is calling me, so I’m gonna go get ready for the aquarium. I’ll tell the otters you said, “Hey, girl, haaaaay!” Talk to you soon.

Mystery Makeup Holiday Giveaway

Good morning, glory! Happy day after Christmas! How’s it going? What have you been up to? More importantly, what have you been eating!? Tell me about all of it. With this whole gestational diabetes thing, I LITERALLY have to live vicariously through you, so please do the right thing, and share with me what you’ve been eating.

And please make it good. I want to be able to close my eyes and practically taste the noms from your descriptions, LOL!

Kidding…sort of.

But seriously, please do it. :)

Haha!

I hope you’re having a fabulous holiday weekend so far. I’ve been doing lots of the regular — fun with family, eating food (although very few carbs), Christmas lights, watching countless Christmas movies and some basketball on TV (go Warriors!) and hardcore relaxing (I even took a nap!).

This week for the giveaway we’re going to do something a little different. Instead of the usual $50 Sephora or MAC gift card, I’m giving away a beautiful gift box filled with mystery makeup and beauty products (mostly makeup) handpicked by me, and I promise you…the prize will be great (minimum $250 value).

The giveaway ends on Thursday, December 31, 2015 at 11:59 PM PST.

Same rules as always to enter, and it’s open to U.S. and international. Just leave a comment about anything down below.

  • One (1) Fancy gift box filled with a mysterious bounty of beauty products (mostly makeup) handpicked by me (with help from Tabs). Estimated value: AT LEAST $250. And the giveaway is open to U.S. AND international readers.

$50 Sephora e-gift card giveaway

Star Wars.

Just gettin’ that out there. :) I felt like I should start this with those words because — my gosh! — it’s Star Wars erryting right now. El Hub is so excited. The new movie is all he’s been talking about for days. He’s like a little kid. We have tickets to see it this afternoon, and I have to admit…I’m pretty excited about it too! I don’t really follow the whole Star Wars mythos, but I have watched all of the movies. I hope this one’s good.

Other that that, shopping. I still have a few things to get, so I’m heading to the mall in a little while this morning.

Tabs says “meow,” by the way. He just went outside for his morning walk, and it rained here last night, so he got to investigate some very interesting puddles, as well as wet grass, which made his tum damp, and he’s not sure how to feel about that… He’s still on the fence about it, but he’s leaning toward “not good.”

How are you doing, my friend? Good, I hope. Will you be getting any days off for the holiday? I’ve had to work on a few Christmases before. It can be a bummer, but I hope you have some people working with you for the camaraderie.

I hope you have a great weekend, whatever you’re doing. Thank you for stopping by…and may the force be with you (I couldn’t resist). :)

Rise and shine, pal o’ mine! What an eventful week… I know I’ve been kind of incomunicado, but I wanted to spend some holiday time with my in-laws, and then yesterday was my first day using my new gestational diabetes gizmo/blood testing thingamabob.

In other words, it was a busy week!

Yup, I was diagnosed with that gestational diabetes stuff. :( It’s pretty common and hopefully temporary. Most of the time it goes away after delivery, but for now I have to prick a finger, test a little drop of blood and log the results in my doctor diary four times per day — once in the morning after getting up, and then once again after each meal.

I mean…it’s not my idea of a party, and I still get anxiety when I have to poke myself with the needle, but you gotta do what you gotta do, ya know? High blood sugar can cause complications later, so if I have to test my blood, watch what I eat even more closely (What!? No more TJ’s dark chocolate stars this year! THE HORROR!) and exercise a little more, it’s done.

In other news…well, I don’t really have any other news. :) Tabs is doing well. He’s almost finished with his Christmas shopping, and he’s been loving life lately because El Hub has been taking him for early morning walks outside while it’s still dark, so he gets to use his cool cat eyes…

Other than that, we’re just chugging along. I hope you are too.

Oh! So much new MAC-ness to talk about, especially new lip products. I’ve been a lip product testing machine! Stay tuned for deets next week.

play-me

Christmas is three weeks away!? Is it just me, or did it come out of nowhere? And purr usual, guess what? Guess who hasn’t even started her Christmas shopping. I’ll give you one guess. :)

Oh, well! Every year, I try to finish my shopping early, but this is usually how it plays out. In my defense, though, this year I have other things on my mind, like Baby Girl’s debut this March and pregnancy aches and pains (I finally had to get a Snoogle). I’m officially six months along now.

How are you doing this week? Have you gotten into the holiday spirit yet? I feel like I’m running WAY behind. I think maybe we’ll get a tree this weekend, just a small one for the pine scent, and maybe also take a trip to the mall (ugh!).

Let me know how you’re doing, and give yourself a big hug from me, OK? Talk to you soon, my friend.
