  1. Mood:
  2. Bleary-eyed and sleepy because the alarm just went off. It’s 4:30 in the morning, but we’ve got an early flight to catch. Soon we’ll be somewhere over the Pacific, dreaming about tabby cats and MAC. Tabs is staying in California; he has a modeling gig lined up with Macy’s later this week.

  3. Left or right handed?
  4. I do almost everything with my right hand (writing, applying makeup, blowing kisses), :) but I like to drive with my left hand on top of the steering wheel.

  5. Where do you consider home?
  6. My parents’ house in the East Bay, even though I haven’t lived there in years.

  7. Three things you’re grateful for?
  8. Apart from the usual (health, family, cat), I’m grateful for ponytail holders, washer/dryers and three-ply toilet paper.

  9. Eyes/lips/cheeks:
  10. I’m in travel makeup mode right now, so just tinted moisturizer, cream blush, MAC Blot, concealer mascara and gloss.

  11. Have you ever studied abroad?
  12. No, but I really wish I had. I would’ve loved to have gone to at least a year of school in Europe.

  13. Do you collect anything?
  14. Makeup, teapots (a relatively new interest), random old books and earrings.

  15. Last text you sent?

Rise and shine, ladies. :) Christmas is right around the corner, and I hope you’re in the holiday spirit. If you’re reading this between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Eastern time, I’m somewhere above the clouds, wishing you all a great week and a beautiful day.

Take a minute to tell me and Tabs how you’re doing. You see, Tabs is holding down the MBB office while I’m airborne. You know what to do…

    7. What do you collect? I used to collect shoes and OPI polishes, but I haven’t bought any of either in close to a year. I’m lying, I bought two OPI polishes in September, but that’s it. Thankfully all those shoes (and shades of polish) are still in style so I can stil wear them for a couple more seasons.

    8. Last text you sent? “Cool, Wednesday it is. Daniel likes Snickers, 3 Musketeers, and Reese’s Pieces.” My sister-in-law needs me to drive her to the Camarillo Outlets on Weds, so I was confirming that, and she was double-checking what kind of candy her brother likes for his stocking-stuffers.

    10. Weekly goals: Get this transcription done, pay some bills, and clean the house.
