Rise and shine, morning glory! Happy caturday! πŸ™‚


How’s it going this morning? Tabs and I are just having some mommy and toygie time on the couch for a few minutes before El Hub and I go grab breakfast and coffee at Panera.

What’s a toygie, you may ask? Well, “toygie” is shorthand for “18-pound diva kitty supermodel.”

Here’s an example of it in everyday use:

“Hi, buddy! Hi, beauty. I love you, toygie-boo. Look at this Jabba on me! Yeah, we’re having mommy and toygie time… Mommy and toygie time…

Don’t bite. Don’t bite. DON’T BITE.”

In other news…guess who’s goin’ country tomorrow!? Yup, I’m heading to Nashville, Tennessee, also known as Music City, for a quick couple days to cover an event for Neutrogena. It’ll be my first time in “the home of country music,” so I’m very excited about it. Today I’m charging up all my gizmos and camera batteries to capture and share as much of the trip as possible.

Whatever you’re up to this weekend, I hope it involves something fun. Good luck in this weekend’s giveaway. Talk to you soon.

  3. I’ve been loving orange and peach for makeup trends. Also pastels.

  4. Isabel says:

    Nothing nicer that running it under cool water and then putting on foundation when it’s getting warm; good coverage but light application is always a win in my book.

  12. Kim Pincombe Cole says:

    Would love 2 win this gift card! So many treasures I’d like to get from Sephora!

  47. bindu says:

    the most ‘southern’ place i’ve been to in the US is new orleans. Went there 2 summers ago, and although I was slowly melting away in the heat it was one of the most unique cities I’ve ever been to with some of the kindest most welcoming people i’ve ever met

  48. Susan T. says:

    I live in the Rockies and my garden is still under 5 feet of snow! I have started some tomato and herb seedlings in the house though. Now all we need is some sun!

  51. Sherry says:

    Hi There!! My favorite country singer is a tie between Vince Gill and Alison Krauss. They both have the voices of angels. I have been down South quite a bit. I have relatives that live in Nashville. It’s a great town. I would love if I could visit again sometime soon, and go to the Grand Ole Opry when I’m there…it’s the best!! I’ve also been to Virginia a lot, because that’s where my Mom was born. Even though I’m a Pennsylvania girl, I’m a big lover of the South. Have a wonderful time in Nashville Karen, and don’t forget your cowboy boots. Yee Haw!!

  52. maria says:

    Love Sephora!! Want to pick up some new stuff for summer.

  53. Alexa says:

    I would LOVE to win this even more than usual. A couple favorite items of mine have run out (nooooo!) and I need to go buy them again. Somehow, that is not as much fun as buying all new makeup. So a gift card would be super awesome! πŸ™‚

  54. Bianca Rogoveanu says:

    I’m craving for a BIG chocolate!

  55. Lynn says:

    I love the new Chanel night moisturizer, tried it at Macy’s yesterday. now i have to save up for it! It has such a lite scent it’s basically seems like it has no smell, but it’s there. and it’s not tacky and feels good on my skin.

  56. Jess says:

    One of my all-time favorite country singers is George Strait! This spring, I am loving the pink tones in the Naked 3 palette from Urban decay. πŸ™‚

  57. Lisa Brown says:

    my gardening is minimal; i hate gardening.

  58. Ashley Wilson says:

    Right now, I am craving some Girl Scout Cookies! I love Tagalongs πŸ™‚

  64. Janea M says:

    The last person I called was my good friend to discuss plans for the summer!!

  65. Brooke says:

    I’m craving everything!! I’ve been sick with a cold that came with a tummy ache so I’ve hardly eaten the past three days, so I’m craving brownie sundaes, and buttered pecan ice cream, and chicken sandwiches, and pizza, and sushi, and yeah, you get the picture =P

  66. Dina says:

    I’ve been trying to resist making a Sephora order but my wish list is ever growing and a girl’s gotta renew her makeup collection every so often, am I right? Have a great time in Texas – are you going to Tennessee? Cos you’re the only ten-I-see!

  67. Susan says:

    I grew up in a tiny town in central Louisiana, but also have briefly lived in Houston (2 years), Dallas (1 year), and small-town Kentucky (10 months). Not much in terms of small-town southern culture has stuck with me, except for the fact that I am a total beauty junkie who wouldn’t dream of leaving the house without having my makeup on, lol. I think it comes from the fact that when you live in a town as small as the one I grew up in, you literally can’t go anywhere without seeing someone you know, which has a way of motivating you to try and look your best at all times!

  68. INCI says:

    The last person I called was my mom. πŸ™‚

  69. Justine says:

    I’m loving orange and coral lips for the season!

    Another favorite is my Tarte blush in Exposed that I picked up a month ago. It is purrrrfect for an au naturale spring look. I find myself reaching for it nearly every day.

  113. Michaela says:

    My favorite Nashville singer although she’s Canadian is Shania Twain. I know I’m dating myself back, but her song “Any Man of Mine”(1995? 96?) is a cool song because it talks about the ideal man a woman should have. Plus I admire her because it took awhile for her to break into the Nashville scene (I understand it’s not easy to break into it) and she’s just talented & beautifu:

    Any man of mine better be proud of me
    Even when I’m ugly he still better love me
    And I can be late for a date that’s fine
    But he better be on time

    Any man of mine’ll say it fits just right
    When last years dress is just a little too tight
    And anything I do or say better be okay
    When I have a bad hair day

    I loved the witty lyrics on this song & the rest of the album. Check it out!

  114. dawn says:

    I can always eat popcorn!

  115. Sylvia says:

    It’s a beautiful day outside but I’m stuck inside working on final assignments. Booo!

  244. Liz says:

    My favorite spring/summer makeup product is actually nothing new to me, but it’s Inglot’s Sleeks Cream Lip Paint in color #90! I dig it up at about every time this year and wear it well into September (because it’s definitely still that hot, and therefore summer-like in Texas!) It’s definitely the perfect pinky-coral color for my skin tone!

  270. Isabel V says:

    When I wind up craving food, it’s usually something like a standard burger or a turkey sandwich (with avocado)! I’m not big on red meat, so the burger hankering always cracks me up. I remember REALLY wanting one the week I got my wisdom teeth taken out. My sketchbook was seriously littered with doodles of them.

  283. Jordi says:

    I live in Virginia, although in the DC suburbs, so I guess that qualifies as the South. But I’ve also driven from Florida back to Virginia, and visited family in Atlanta, and been to a conference in Louisiana… this northerner has been to much of the South.

  284. Kayvid says:

    My garden is coming along ok. I hate gardening when there’s a layer of yellow on EVERYthing…the allergies are killing me…

  286. Kim says:

    Isn’t it funny how we have pet names for our pets? Our newest edition is only called Willoughby by one of the boys. The rest of us call him all manner of nicknames. Mine are usually “handsome boy, good kitten, Willeroo or Woozer Woo”. πŸ™‚

    I’m not a fan of country music (generally speaking) but growing up in the sticks has given me quite a bit of exposure to it. I always surprise myself when I know all the words to a country song.

    have fun in Nashville!

  311. Maria says:

    I have never been to the South but I’m hoping to visit Savannah Georgia one day.

  312. Tweakweasel says:

    I’m starting to worry that I may start collecting higher end makeup. :-S During Sephora’s 15% sale, I picked up two OCC Lip Tars which I figured was fine as they’re so darn customizable and you get so much product for the price…and then I got a 100 point gift. A Buxom lipgloss. It was alright, a nice shade, minty, cooling, kind of tingly, but seemingly nothing to write home about…so why did I order two more of the things? πŸ˜› I reeeeeally hope this doesn’t turn into me collecting every one of them, especially since they now have 100 shades. After all, there’s still A Dose of Color’s entire lipgloss range to pick up. XD Oy.

  313. Jen says:

    I have recently been getting into country music (maybe because now its spring), and I have been loving Dan + Shay, Carrie Underwood, and Hunter Hayes!

  314. Ruth says:

    I am vegan for like 5 years and I have been having weird dreams about being BBQ ribs. So I guess that I have been craving that…

  315. Sue says:

    I always crave good BBQ. BTW, has your cat lost weight?
