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.

Rise and shine, morning glory. It’s caturday! :)

Today’s forecast calls for patchy morning fog, clearing up to sunshine and temps in the low-to-mid 70s by the afternoon. Your nephew is currently perched behind me on the living room windowsill.

Actually, he hasn’t gone outside yet this morning because I’ve only been up for a few minutes, and you know his routine… He’s gotta inspect the hillside first thing every morning before the neighborhood hustle and bustle gets going, so he’s not pleased about this current deviation from his regular schedule.

What did do last night? Did you do anything fun? We just went to a movie down the street. Danny Collins, Starring Al Pacino and Annette Bening? It’s the old aging rocker motif, but I always like those. It’s interesting to see how famous people interact with the world. It seems like a very lonely life sometimes, even with all the perks.

Today I’m just staying around the house, maybe going to Blue Barn to get a salad for lunch, but I have to — or at least I really want to — finish setting up my deck garden. We’re making this the Summer of the Tomato, so we have to clean out the old pots from last year, top off the pots with fresh potting mix, and get some plants started. El Hub brought home seven huge bags of potting mix the other day, so it’s time to get a little dirty. :)

Other than that, I don’t know… Maybe planning for one or two trips. We’ve been thinking about going to Tahoe again, and maybe the Big Island. Maybe a quick trip to Portland, too, because we have some friends up there.

Gotta take the time to actually make the plans, though; otherwise, it’ll be October before we know it.

I hope you have a great weekend, my friend. Good luck in the giveaway, and I’ll talk to you soon.

Good morning, friend! Happy Saturday (or caturday, if you’re a cat lady). :)

I’m still a little sleepy… I’m trying to wake up with a cup of green tea, though, because I need to run, aka “get my sweat on,” and then El Hub and I are going to take his parents out sightseeing (they’re visiting this weekend).

What are you up to today? Doing anything fun? We’re probably just gonna go to Fairfax, which is a cute little town in West Marin County, and then maybe up to Napa if everyone’s up for the drive.

Anywho, you know the drill. It’s Saturday, which means it’s giveaway time. To enter to win a $50 Sephora e-card, all you have to do is leave a quick comment down below.

Good luck, and may you see fuzzy blue-eyed kittens today.
