    Hi Vampy Varnish,

    OMG — I haven’t heard that song in years! *goes to youtube to find video*

  15. Karen says:

    Hi Jen,

    Oh no! Why was your trip hellacious?

  18. Karen says:

    Hi Karen Too,

    How is married life treating you? Did you guys go on a honeymoon after the wedding?

  19. Karen says:

    Hi Elle,

    That song is one of my running songs. I use it when I need to get up a really tough hill or when I’m getting tired and need some inspiration — it always works!

    Also, how are you liking that MAC foundation stick? I haven’t tried it and am curious.

    And thanks for the crock pot ideas. How do you make the meatloaf? Sounds yummy!

  20. Karen says:

    Hi Shiny,

    I hope that you get your paper done! I know the feeling of deadlines looming…ugh!

    Regarding forcing yourself to do things you don’t want to do: this is the bane of my existence. I usually have to trick myself by having “an exit option.” For example, if I don’t want to go running, I’ll tell myself that I have to put on my running clothes, shoes and go downstairs and stand at the start of my running route a few minutes. If I still don’t want to go running after all of that I can skip it. Most of the time (like 99%) I’ll get down there and think, “Oh, what the hell. I’m already dressed so I might as well go.” It’s a weird psychological trick that works for me.

    And if all else fails there’s always makeup bribery. :)

  21. Karen says:

    Hi Tekoa,

    How exciting! Wait — is this the first time he’s meeting your folks?!

  22. Karen says:

    Hi Lydia,

    Girl! Props to you for your grad school goals. What are you studying?

    And a big YAY for chocolate. Are you a semi-sweet chocolate girl like I am?

  23. Karen says:

    Hi GG,

    Paperwork is never fun. :(

    Too funny that you are a splinter removing expert! I am terrible at it, eek!

  24. Karen says:

    Hi Yadiq,

    Wow, I can’t even begin to imagine the challenges you’ve had over the last week. I’ve never had to navigate that type of relationship so I bet it’s difficult. How much longer will you have the kids with you? I hope it gets easier with time…

I also bought some weights and a medicine ball for home because I REALLY need to do strength training also, but I never seem to do it. We do have a lot of cool classes at the gym, so I plan on trying one or two out during my lunch break and see how it goes!

  39. Karen says:

    Hi Tiera,

    Girl, we are MAC Blot Powder twins! I wear the same color!

    I’m a lil’ bummed that El Hub and I won’t be there for New Year’s. I love seeing the fireworks.

  40. Karen says:

    Hi Babyu21,

    I like the idea of a Personal Growth Plan for the next year. I think I’ll start one, too. Thank you for the idea!

    Happy, happy New Year to you, too! :)

  41. Karen says:

    Hi Caro,

    I am a naturally an impulsive, go-with-the-gut kinda girl, too. In some ways, it’s such a fantastic trait to have (life is certainly never boring), but it’s also a very challenging one at times, too. I’ve found that as I get older one thing that helps is to just step back and force myself to take some time before making decisions. Waiting one day (or one hour, even) can make a difference.

  42. Karen says:

    Hi Tania,

    You will be the first makeup lovin’ deacon I’ve ever known! That’s so cool! :)

    Was there a moment when you just knew that was what you wanted to do? Or was it something that took time to decide upon?

  43. Karen says:

    Hi Holly,

    On nice! You’ll have to tell me if you like that cleanser. I like Clarins and want to try more of their skin stuff.

  44. Karen says:

    Hi Ellery,

    What a wonderful thing to be good at — everybody needs a friend like that.

    My Monday was great, albeit very fleeting. How was yours?

  45. Karen says:

    Hi Vampy Varnish,

    Lucky you! Sometimes the ten minute drive to the gym is a big obstacle for me, especially when it’s raining. That’s fab that you can go right at work.

    Strength training is SO GREAT! When I was doing it consistently I got a real kick out of the fact that I could do push ups (the real kind). You won’t regret it! :)

  46. Karen says:

    Hi Daya,

    I’d love to be a children’s author too. Hmm, maybe young adult fiction…

    Good luck getting your makeup organized! That is one of my challenges.

    Hi Lesley,

    Thanks for heads up. YAY, for Coralista (now if only they’d make a matching gloss…).

    I haven’t tried the BadGal Waterproof yet. I gotta get on that!

    Hi Ines,

    I didn’t know that you liked to cook! I need a crock pot recipe. Got any ideas for me?

  49. Karen says:

    Hi Shiny,

    You’re welcome. I learned it from my music teacher *ages* ago. That’s how he’d get himself to practice every day. It’s simple, but works, so I’m happy to pass it on!

    Married life is very nice and sweet and romantic… :-) In a way we took the honeymoon in advance as we were in Hawaii this summer, but we went to Madeira (off the African coast, north of the Canari Islands) for a short week right after the wedding. We had never been there before, and it was such a great place. It was warm and light there (in contrast to Norway in the winter). :-) Also such dramatic and beautiful landscape. I definitely want to go back some day. Manybe for a wedding anniversary down the road?

    Hey Karen!

    It is an awesome workout song. :) It kicks your butt and some of the lyrics make me laugh too.

    I’m liking the stick so far–I don’t need a whole lot of foundation these days (knock on wood) and I just twist it up a bit and use a foundation brush to apply it to my face. It’s really easy to use and it doesn’t have that weird smell that some foundations have.

    As for the meatloaf, I just do the usual meatloaf recipe–ground beef, eggs, onions, garlic, celery, red pepper, bread crumbs, ketchup, sometimes pine nuts (yes I put weird random things in my meatloaf sometimes!), shape it into a loaf (usually with the help of a loaf pan since I can be completely helpless) and then flip that upside down and cook it in the crock pot for a few hours on low (great for when you have things to do around the house and don’t want to be bothered with checking the stove every 5 minutes).
