    hey karen!
    happy long weekend!
    my cousin flew up to montreal from chicago so we had a bit of fun together.

    new things… just got approved to adopt a cat from a local foster-based rescue. the cat i will hopefully get to take home is an orange and white tabby boy who i don’t have a name for yet.

    time for a quick poll: cat names… help me decide!
    the names are obviously going to be dance related names, since i’m that obsessed with it.
    a) cha cha (orange cat seems like a cha cha i don’t know why)
    b) samba (this seems more like a girl’s name, but all of these are gender neutral)
    c) rumba (if the cat was a black, sleek cat?
    d) mr. jive

    Le List
    Mood: good.
    Hobbies? ballroom/dancesport.
    Hair: au naturel right now.
    What’s your favorite snack? possibly chips & extra spicy salsa.
    Outfit: pink muffin-print pajama pants and a tank top
    Eyes/lips/cheeks: nada…
    What’s your preferred method of hair removal? shaving/nair cream
    Summer plans? adopt a cat, visit chicago.
    Are you a night or a morning person? night owl
    Weekly goals: visit my kitty, don’t eat junk.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Ines,

      Ooh, lucky girl and lucky kitty!

      I love all of these names… but I think I like Cha Cha. :) You’ll have to try it on him and see if it sticks. I used to call Tabs “F.T.” for Fussy Tabby, but that didn’t quite work. Somehow the name Tabs came along organically. So if your tabby boy doesn’t take to Cha Cha I think eventually his name will come to you!

      When do you get to bring him home?

  2. redhead says:

    Hobbies? Sketching art, singing, acting, and – here’s the big surprise! – SCHOOL! I love school. 😀
    Hair: I just got up (this is my SUPER lazy Monday off!) so my hair is in a messy bun (no, not the fashionable sort) and sticking up in irregular tufts at the crown, LOL! I look like a mad scientist.
    What’s your favorite snack? Cape Cod Salt and Cracked Pepper Potato Chips. Sure, I need a glass of water or 2 every time I eat them and nobody else in my household likes them, but for me, they’re like a spicier version of sour cream & onion chips!
    Outfit: Dunn and Cordoba tee (my orthodontist) and pajama bottoms with cupcakes on them, haha!
    Eyes/lips/cheeks: Au naturale as of now, but later I’m gonna do a summery blue eye and cool pink lip with MAC Filament on the inner lid, L’Oreal Wear Infinite Shadow Quad in Out Of The Blue (the lighter blue on the middle lid, dark blue on the outer lid and crease with Filament to diffuse crease), Navy Stain Powerpoint on the lower lashline, Well Dressed blush and Pink Nouveau lipstick.
    What’s your preferred method of hair removal? Shaving, with hair conditioner instead of shaving gel. It makes the hair so much easier to remove and silkens my skin!
    Summer plans? Art classes with an AMAZING artist at my local folk art gallery, auditions for the junior production of The Wizard of Oz at my local theater, and lazing about with friends. No traveling for me.. The economy sucks too much! 😉
    Are you a night or a morning person? Night person, mostly because I’m cranky in the morning.
    Weekly goals: Fix my geography folder, use my new L’Oreal shadow, find a solution for my auful split ends!

  3. redhead says:

    Woops! Forgot to include my mood.
    Mood: Excited for summer/excited to try out my new L’Oreal shadow quad that I swatched on my hand. SOOOO pretty!! I bought Out Of The Blue, and the shades are: Metallic golden copper, metallic deep bronze, sea foamy sky blue with golden green shimmer, and dark, dark blue with no black tones and subtle aqua shimmer.

    Sleepy, I have been up since yesterday so add a little grumpy to sleepy!

    2. Hobbies other than makeup?

    3. Hair:
    Do you mean what is it like now, or how I like to where it?
    I’ll just answer both. Right now because of all the rain I have not been using the flat iron and embracing my curls, so that means it’s in a ponytail, with a side part, and sideswept bangs. My favorite way to wear my hair is straightned with a flat iron, then curl certain sections.

    4. What’s your favorite snack?
    This is going to sound weird but roasted and salted soybeans! They are the best! I know they sound gross, but it’s a great source of protein and so good for you and they really taste good!

    5. Outfit:
    Black yoga pants, pink t-shirt, pink sweatshirt.

    6. Eyes/lips/cheeks:
    I love makeup and usually prefer a more dramatic look, but not so much today.

    I am a wax virgin! yes, there is one out there…I shave after I tried to wax at home…that wasn’t pleasant…

    8. What are your plans this summer?
    I’ve got to get prepared to start Nursing school in August, so right after I finish this up I’ll be reading and studying and that is probably what my summer will consist of…but it’s worth it! Right?…LOL!

    9. Are you a night or a morning person?
    Night person all the way! I come alive at 8 p.m.! I thought that would change as I got older but I still am better at night.

    Get back into the groove of things with my freelance writing, go through all of the e-mail I missed, catch up on my blogging, pay some extra attention to Tabs, and do some push-ups because I feel weak!
    Aloha, homies. El Hub and I are getting ready to leave for the airport and to head on home to California. It was great to see our family, but we have to get back to work.

    Weekly goals:
    Wow! There are a lot of them! Mop the floors, clean bathrooms, brush up on my chemistry and algebra for a Nursing Aptitude test I have Thursday (everyone cross your fingers!), we just got into our first house, and all of our possessions were ruined due to tropical storm fay, so my goal is to at least try to go through 2 boxes a day, but there’s no where to put it? LOL! Maybe I’ll knock that one off the list. As long as I have my makeup and hair products I’ll be fine!

    Have a great weekend!

    Le List

    1. Mood:
    Not so good, I went to an after hours clinic on Sat. and got the results today that I have strep throat. No wonder I couldn’t swallow good all weekend and oh how I hate that!

    2. Hobbies?
    Reading nail polish and beauty blogs, reading, catching up on movies, photography, & scrapbooking. With a 9 & 2 year old, I don’t get to go out to the movies like I used to. lol

    3. Hair:
    A managable bob cut just under the chin. I love this haircut.

    4. What’s your favorite snack?
    I like sweet stuff for snacks such as cake and cookies and when I want salty – only doritos will do. lol

    Today I am au natural (since I’ve got strep throat). Ugh!!!

    7. What’s your preferred method of hair removal?
    I had unwanted chin hair lasered off about 3/4 months ago. I now have my eyebrows waxed when I am going ALL out.

    My hubby and I are planning on going to New Orleans next month…without kids and then maybe take our children to Sea World later in the summer.

    9. Are you a night or a morning person?
    I am a morning person because once I’m up…I’m up (even if I don’t want to be).

    10. Weekly goals:
