Rise and shine, pal o’ mine! It’s going to be a beautiful day. πŸ™‚


Happy caturday to ya. I hope you slept well and did a little recuperating from the week. Did you have any good dreams that you remember? Or any weird dreams?

I can’t recall if I did… I hope so.

Oh! — get this: your nephew tabby was unusually affectionate this morning. Before I got out of bed, he was all up in my grill, giving me headbutts galore with slow blinks and purring loudly.

Yes, it was a nice way to start the day.

In other news, dinner with my in-laws last night. We had a good time. If you’re ever out this way and craving Italian food, I can’t recommend Fabrizio’s enough (aren’t those food pics on the website gorgeous?). It’s a family-run place right downtown near lots of little shops and cafes along the boulevard.

Well worth a trip across the bridge if you live in San Francisco, and after dinner you could walk a block down the street and catch a movie at the Lark.

I think Larkspur is an underrated gem out here in Marin County. Sausalito gets tons of attention, but people sometimes forget about Larkspur.

Good luck in this weekend’s giveaway, and if I don’t catch you again before tomorrow, have a very happy Easter. πŸ™‚

    Let I’m tell you a story about two kitties: Nhocas,a girl,and a boy named Tico.
    The first to enter my life was Nhocas, a six year old cat. I had just moved to a new house and she was my neighbours’ pet. We got along just fine and quickly she belonged to the two houses. For two years she helped me to live with a muscular disease. My super kitty as I called her. Last year she passed away. Something in her liver. I was shocked, in the same day I was accepted to college. I like to believe she waited for me to get what I worked so hard for. Oh, did I tell you the worst part? It was my birthday. But I’m grateful for those two years of joy and she was loved, and still is, for two families.
    This January my neighbours brought a small kitty home. It was Nhocas’s brother, really.
    And now this kitty ( kitty? He’s so big I don’t believe it’s a kitty anymore!) lives with the two families. The best way to honor my best friend its to take care of her family and be happy, right?

  40. Alexas says:


    First lipstick color to come to mind! Now that I think about it I’m so mad that I didn’t by two of those when I had the chance. For the love of limited edition lippies…and for some reasons that the main lipstick I always seem to misplace…because I will most likely never be able to get it again.

  41. Kim says:

    Chanel Rouge Coco in Mademoiselle is the first lipstick that comes to mind. It’s my all time favorite.

  42. Katie says:

    I ALWAYS listen to music when I workout. Forgetting my iPod when I’m at the gym is an actual crisis.

  45. Mandy says:

  46. Nicole says:

    I love board games – these days Cosmic Encounter is my favorite.

  47. Stacey says:

    My favorite makeup bag is a teal and gold chevron printed barrel makeup bag from Too Faced. It was from a recent set sold at sephora, and my favorite person there found it in the drawer when looking for the product I wanted, and just gave it to me! It was part of the display, but they took it down and it no longer served any purpose. Lucky me! I keep all of my lipsticks that I carry with me in it.

  48. Miki says:

    I have one dog named Mina, and the first lipstick that comes to mind is Hourglass Muse because I’ve been lusting after that one for a while now!

    My first lipstick was Kanebo T’estimo, purply golden undertoned. Best thing ever:)

  63. Kai says:

    My favorite make up bag is a green one I got from Deuter ( a sports brand). Why I love it? You can hang it when you travel and it folds in such a way that it occupies a small space in your bag. The compartments make it easier to organize plus it has a separate hard
    pencil case-like compartment for my dear brushes πŸ™‚

  64. I have two cats – Libby and Zane.

  69. Natasha says:

    When I exercise, I watch TV on my iPad.. I cannot stand just listening to music while I do it, it doesn’t get me in the mood and frankly makes me quit sooner because I’m so bored! lol

To give back I’m starting a program for women who have been released from a period of incarceration. Makeup for a 2nd Chance will help women build their self-esteem while helping them create a professional look for employment opportunities and job interviews.

  119. Lisa says:

    i like cards against humanity, but my favorite “board” game is the bowl game, which you can make on your own. everyone submits 3-5 “clues” on pieces of paper that are people, things, quotes, etc. and puts them in a big bowl. you have 2 teams. on the first round, you play it like taboo, where people have 1 minute to describe as many clues as possible without saying the work. 1 point for each correct guess. after the bowl is empty, round 2 is charades. round 3, you can only say 1 word.

  120. Jordi says:

    I like card games and board games. Today I played Set with my kids. We like to play Fluxx – another really fun card game.

    I grew up on a farm from the 1800’s. It wasn’t functioning when we lived there, but we had a huge barn full of hay, acres of woods to play it, old horse stalls. It was a wonderful place to grow up!

  125. Christine says:

    Is it weird I try to do all three while at the gym? Whenever I do cardio at the gym I have a specific treadmill I like because it gets maximum wireless connection. It has a TV that gets the local station, and is in front of the big screen TVs for sports and national news. So if nothing’s on TV I can watch something on YouTube or listen to music on Spotify.

  138. Isabel V says:

    L’oreal’s Infallible Always Apricot! I really should wear that shade more often…it brightens my face right up! Plus it sticks around when I’m chowing down, which is something I appreciate in a lipstick.

    Lipstick? I’m not too keen on the lipstick (maybe I’m doing something wrong?) but I sure do like my first big purchase of one: MAC’s Hot Tahiti. I can wear it and not have to worry too much throughout the day, like I would with a red lip. It’s pretty neutral and it smells so pretty! (like all MAC lippies do!).

    Hoping to find another lipstick brand. I think NYX is worth a try. πŸ˜‰

    Hi Karen! Happy Easter! The first lipstick that came to mind for me was MAC Rebel, which is hilarious because it’s not even a shade I own πŸ˜› But it is one I hear about a lot, and stream of consciousness brought it to the front, I guess! Pretty berry-fuchsia but I don’t think I would love it with my own complexion. Anyhow, hope the easter bunny done ya right this year!

  234. Jennifer M-K says:

    Do you live on a farm? – No but when I went to college in Queens and I told my friends I lived about an hour North of the city everyone always assumed I lived on or near a farm and lived “upstate.” If you ever look at a map of NY I live in the southern end of it…not even close to the mid point let alone upstate but I’ve come to the conclusion anything north of the city is referred to as upstate by city dwellers >_<

    I did my family’s traditional Easter egg hunt this year…at 28 years old. I wouldn’t mind if we didn’t do it anymore I suppose, but all of the cousins (who are also in their twenties) still love doing it and my mother gets some strange fun out of being our geriatric Easter bunny. Of course, because we’re all assured of getting candy anyway and just because I’m not as mercenary when it comes to sugar as I used to be as a child, I’m perfectly content to just wander my aunt’s backyard, enjoying the (usually) fine Spring weather. And yet, somehow, this year, my most competitive cousin and I tied for finding our eggs the fastest so that was actually kind of fun. Even if I’m a twenty-something looking for plastic eggs. πŸ˜›

    Oh, and um…my first thought was Heroine by MAC and then it seemed to change over to Rx by OCC. What can I say? Those two do make an impression.
