Rise and shine, morning glory, and happy caturday. :) I hope you slept well.

Gosh, can you believe that it’s already Memorial Day weekend? I totally forgot that this Monday was a holiday. I only realized it last night! No plans for me yet…but we’ll have to think of something. Maybe a picnic at the beach or a hike in the Marin Headlands. I just wish that Tabs could come with us…

Do you ever do that — wish that your cat could do outdoorsy things with you?

No? Is that crazy?

Haha! Yeah, it sounds a little crazy.

Speaking of cats, your royal highness is in quite a mood. He hasn’t gone for his walk yet today because it’s damp out there and cloudy, so he’s mewling and pacing up and down the hallway.

I wonder what he’s saying in cat-speak. It sounds dramatic like, “THIS IS THE WORST DAY IN THE HISTORY OF DAYS EVER!” But it’s probably, “GRAVY, GRAVY, BIRD, GRAVY, BIRD, LIZARD, CRINKLY TOY!”

LOL!

Good luck in the giveaway. I thought we’d make this one for Sephora again.

And have a great Memorial Day weekend, whatever you’re up to. :)

Rise and shine, pal o’ mine! Are you feeling Furiosa?

OK, so Mad Max: Fury Road was a riotously good action movie, and Charlize Theron’s Furiosa kicks so much butt, but now that I sit and think about the movie…a lot of it is blurring together. It’s such a visual spectacle of high-octane nonstop action, and everything’s so dusty and dirty and hot, but it’s almost more like listening to heavy metal music while looking at a beautiful painting of the desert than watching a regular movie….if that makes any sense.

In other news, I’m still making progress on Project Get My Sh*t Together, but I haven’t fully gotten it together yet. I did pick up three of these gray ombre milk crates from Target to use in the pink storage shelves in my office, but I haven’t filled them yet. So maybe I’ll work on that this weekend.

Other than that, I don’t know what’s on my agenda yet. Maybe a bicycle ride this afternoon in the Novato hills with El Hub if it warms up a little. It’s not exactly cold, but it has been very windy here. It gets Tabs fired up, I guess because he sees everything moving.

You know how cats are.

How was your week? What was the most surprising or interesting thing that happened?

Good morning, beautiful! :) I hope you slept well. Now, rub the sleep from your eyes, and give your arms a big stretch, because it’s a sparkling new day.

I’m a little sleepy because I got home late from the concert last night, and just in case you were wondering, my mission to get Jordan Knight to sign my left boob was totally unsuccessful…

Um, you know I’m kidding right!? Although, if this were Jordan Night from the ’90s we were talking about, it would be a totally different story.

A visual reminder in case you forgot:

Yes, that is THE Jordan Knight circa 1992 wearing track pants like they’re capris!!

Remind me to tell you the story behind that picture one of these days…

Anyway, for something different this week, instead of the usual Sephora prize, I’ll be giving away a $50 MAC eGIFT CARD instead. Just to mix things up a bit.

Have a happy Mother’s Day weekend (one word: BRUNCH), and best of luck in the giveaway. I’ll talk to you soon.

Good morning. :) Hello there, sweet friend.

I’m just sittin’ here at my breakfast table listening to the thundering of little tabby feet running around upstairs. I have no idea what he’s doing up there, but it sounds like a competitive decathlon.

I’ve got a stack of magazines here, a hot cup of green tea and my Pink Power Smoothie, and I’m just gonna sit here for a while and read.

Ah… I love Saturdays. I love the quiet time for breakfast and to be able to sort of ease slowly into the day. The rest of the week, it’s go, go, go from the moment I open my eyes, but Saturday mornings are about high-intensity relaxing. :)

In other news, I’m going to tackle another section of the house today and tomorrow as part of Operation Get My Sh*t Together, and I’m also going to go to Target to see if I can find some of those photo shelves, so I can finally put my stuff up on the walls.

I hope you have a wonderful Saturday and a fantastic weekend. Tonight I’m heading to my pal Bernadette’s house (she’s an AMAZING cook!) to watch the Pacquiao v. Mayweather fight (go Pac!). Honestly, I’m going mostly for the food and the company…but El Hub will provide sports commentary as the resident boxing enthusiast.

You don’t even know how many conversations I’ve had to listen to over the past week on the fine points of Pacquiao v. Mayweather.

What are you up to? Doing anything fun?

Rise and shine, morning glory. Happy caturday. :) Thank you for all of your kinds words and encouragement this week and for letting me lean on you for a bit. Maybe someday I can return the favor. I get teary every single time I go into the comments on the Quick Hello post from a few days ago.

I’m feeling a lot better already, partially because I’ve made some headway on cleaning my office. I mean…it still looks like a hornet’s nest, but I have done a lot of purging and a little reorganizing, so one step is better than no steps, I guess.

I hope that you’re having a nice morning so far. What are you up to over there?

I’m just going to continue my office cleaning project and maybe (probably) play with some makeup. I do have to hit up the dollar store and The Container Store a little later, but that’s about it. That’s what I’m doing this weekend.

But right now I’m having breakfast. I made more of those Flourless Thumbprint Oatmeal Cookies (yum!) and some scrambled eggs. And some chai tea, which I’m very excited about. :)

Have a great weekend, my friend. Talk to you soon.
