OK, is it raining there as much as it’s raining here? — because I swear, we haven’t gone more than three days without rain in, like…I don’t even know how long. This El Niño character is awfully insistent about his rain.

Rise and shine, morning glory! :) Rain or shine, it’s Caturday!

Poor Tabs… He hasn’t gone outside for a walk in days, and he has some tabby depression about it. He hates the rain. Well…he’s confused by it, because the sound and the movement of the water fires him up, but then when he goes outside in it, he realizes that it’s all wet and cold and annoying, and he wants nothing to do with it.

I also think he blames me for the weather, like it’s all my fault and I’m dropping the ball as his professional pet assistant. “What!? What the hell is this WET stuff!? It’s EVERYWHERE! Girl, you are doing a terrible job managing my wants and needs!”

In other news, I have a fun-filled weekend of baby growing and grocery shopping lined up. Yup, the excitement never stops at Casa de MBB. It’s a thrill a minute, LOL! I hope you’re doing something fun.

Good luck in the giveaway! Meg here won earlier this month. I wonder what she’s gonna get…

Good morning, buddy. :) How’s it goin’? What’s the 4-1-1? For me it’s birthing classes. Today El Hub and I have part two of our birthing classes, where I’m learning all kinds of interesting things about the whole labor process, like how to time contractions (apparently, there’s an app for that), how to breathe, and the overall timing of things, as in when to grab my overnight hospital “go bag,” yell “it’s time!” to El Hub and dash out the door.

Our delivery hospital is supposed to be the Kaiser in San Francisco, which is about 35 miles away, so fingers crossed that we won’t be delivering Baby Girl in the Mazda on Highway 101, LOL!

Anywho, the class is very interesting (I wore the Gwen Stefani Blush Palette). It’s helping me build my confidence, which is helping me stay calm. Ah…

Other than that, it’s still El Niño weather out here, so it’s drizzly and overcast…but at least it isn’t pouring down rain right now, yay! :)

Good luck in the giveaway! Reader Nicole got herself a toner and some freebies after she won.

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.

sephora-giveaway-prize-2015

  • 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). :)
