Verve is such a cool word, isn’t it?

Verve…

I actually woke up lacking verve today, LOL! Totally lacking verve.

Oh, well. Hopefully the coffee helps me find it.

How’s it going this morning, my friend? What are you up to? I’m sitting here on the couch finishing my first cup of joe and breakfast (a waffle with almond butter and honey drizzled on top, and a side of sliced peaches) and watching The Golden Girls with Tabs.

Well, he’s actually staring out the window at the bird feeder expectantly. There are currently no birds dining at the restaurant.

Did you do anything fun last night? We were going to go see the new X-Men movie but ended up just going to Pasta Pomodoro instead.

Have you been watching True Detectives? I’m not the world’s biggest fan of cop shows, but dang if doesn’t have some amazing acting. Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson and Michelle Monaghan on screen in a TV show at the same time? That’s one heck of a cast.

Time for my second cup of coffee now! Can I get you one? Enter this weekend’s Sephora giveaway, and I’ll be right back. :)

Good morning, glory! How did you sleep? Help yourself to a cup of coffee in the kitchen.

So, Godzilla last night… El Hub and I went.

Now, let me just start by saying that I sort of missed the whole Godzilla thing growing up. El Hub, on the other hand, appears to have seen dozens of Godzilla movies over the past zillion years, maybe because he grew up in Hawaii or something, and they must have been really popular over there. I don’t know.

At any rate, I went into the theater only expecting this: GIANT MONSTER DESTROYS CITIES! (With the all-caps like that because I expected a lot of it.)

And, uh, that’s pretty much what I got. :) But you know me, I love sci-fi, and it was sci-fi-ish, so I liked it well enough.

Still, I can’t believe there are dozens of Godzilla movies out there. I wonder what the other ones are about…

LOL!

In other news, have you ever noticed how long cats drink when they drink water? It’s a freakishly long time, right? Tabs will sit at his water bowl lapping water for like three minutes!

Sorry, random thought…

Good luck in this weekend’s giveaway. Hope you have a fun weekend lined up.

Rise and shine, pal o’ mine. We made it through another week! Congrat-poo-lations. :)

What did you end up doing last night? Did anyone else go see that new movie, Neighbors? On a very serious note (not really), what did you think of Zac Efron’s abs and lashes??

Ha! Not bad, right? Bravo on both counts.

I was surprised by how much I liked that movie. Yes, SO DUMB! — but totally fun, and some of the jokes about grownup life are freaky accurate, like going to bed with a mouthguard and loving brunch.

In other news, this should be a laid back weekend for me. Tomorrow I’m driving out the East Bay to take my mom out to Mother’s Day brunch, but other than that, I’ll just be chillin’ here around the house. I owe Tabs some quality playtime.

Good luck in this week’s giveaway. Happy Mother’s Day to you and yours. :)

Good morning, glory. :) I hope you slept well. Did you do anything interesting or fun last night?

El Hub and I drove down to Blue Barn in Corte Madera, and I got that salad I like (with the grilled shrimp and avocado). Then we just tooled around the mall until closing.

It was such a comfortable night outside, all warm with a beautiful coral and pink sunset, so it was nice to just walk around.

There’s an REI down there, so we walked in to look at bikes, and I found a cute blue one with flowers painted on it and tassels on the handlebars and a basket on the front that would have been perfect for kittens, but it was like $700!

Seriously, when did cute bicycles get so expensive?

In other news, this was a big week for my addiction to makeup. :) I hope you enjoyed the MAC Maleficent and Alluring Aquatic coverage. I had a total blast doing those posts.

Good luck in this weekend’s Sephora giveaway. Talk to you soon.

Hey, boo! Good morning. How are you? How’s everything out there?

“Out there…” Sounds like I’m talking to an astronaut. :)

I hope you had a good week. I hope you experienced something new, got some nice weather, and had someone pay you a compliment, because that always feels good.

If not, then let’s do it now: “You’re sweet and kind and creative and have impeccably good taste, and I love you.”

Looks like the sun came out here this morning. It’s not as overcast as it was yesterday.

We actualy got more rain this week, which is starting to approach unusual weather territory, because here in this part of Northern California our last real rains of the season usually happen right around early April…

Most of the time. If I’m remembering correctly.

I don’t mind though. It makes my allergies a little worse, but it’s better for Mother Nature overall.

Keeps the flowers around and everything green longer.

Do you have any plans this weekend? All I really have is my dad’s bday dinner in the East Bay tonight and maybe a breakfast sammy and coffee at Panera Bread with El Hub in a few. Beyond that, I’m just sort of wingin’ it.

Best of luck in this week’s giveaway. I wish — WISH! — I was able to hold a giveaway where every single person could win. That would be a dream come true. I actually fantasize a lot about what kinds of things I could do for us here on the blog if I ever won the lottery. One of the ideas is to take a group of 10 readers off to Paris for an all-expenses-paid two-week adventure (because one week wouldn’t be enough). We could visit Chanel headquarters and spend one entire day in the Louvre.

Le sigh…

Have a great day today, babe. My tummy is rumbly, so I’ll talk to you soon. Panera is calling my name! :)
