I’m okay… Just okay. I had a nightmare last night (abandonment was the theme), and it’s been lingering with me all morning. I just got off a nice phone call with my mom, though, and feel a lot better. No one can comfort me like my mom…
Pecan pie! OOH! And stuffing, mashed potatoes, green beans… I could go on. I usually like the sides more than the actual turkey.
MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation. After not using it regularly for a while, I was recently reminded why I love it so much. It’s lightweight, buildable, doesn’t give me breakouts, and I can get away with using very little and still achieve great coverage.
I really appreciate being able to build it up to cover my trouble spots, or go sheerer by spritzing my MAC 188 skunk brush with MAC Fix+ before applying it on the areas where I don’t need as much coverage.
On top of all that, it stays put all day long. Bravo.
The boys (El Hub and Tabs). Without ’em I’d be a certified crazy pants (in case you’re wondering, that’s the clinical term).
Working with MAC to create EvRev was a pretty awesome surprise.
Yesterday while I was waiting in line at Target. I got to talking with an older gentleman waiting in front of me. He was there buying Christmas presents for his seven grandkids, and after he’d paid for his things, he got one of those long strings of coupons from the register, glanced at them, and then looked at my cart, smiled and said, “Here, I think you can use this one.”
It was a small gesture, but very sweet.
Gloves. You just never know when you’ll need to be able to use your fingers to pinch the crap out of someone, and mittens interfere with proper pinching technique… Yes, I speak from experience.
Star stickers! I print out a simple calendar, post it on the fridge, and then place a star sticker next to the days when I make progress toward my goal.
What’s great is that it works even better as the stars accumulate over time.
Not yet. My 20-year is coming up soon (!), but I’ve kept in touch with my best friends from school.
To get in at least three runs before T-Day, to take a ton of drool-worthy food pics, and to eat an entire pie!
Yesterday El Hub and I grabbed some Vietnamese food for lunch, and while we were at the restaurant, I had a dollop of that Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce. You know the one I’m talking about, right? The rooster sauce?
I’ve steered clear of it for years, but I guess I felt a little adventurous yesterday, and I’m glad I did.
I’m not really a spicy food person, but I forgot how delicious that stuff is (in moderation). The burn builds up over time, instead of just hitting your taste buds right off the bat, so I can take it as long as I’m careful about how much I use.
We used to keep a bottle in the house for El Hub, who loves hot food, but we got rid of it once after he OD’d.
In music news, did you to watch the AMA Awards last? I’m kinda bummed because I totally forgot they were on. I was so busy watching the zombie melodrama on The Walking Dead that the AMA’s slipped my mind.
Not AMA related, but I’ve been listening to Uncharted by Sara Bareilles a lot lately. It just makes me feel so…good. And the video’s such a crackup.
Now without further ado, the Monday Poll.
