You might be wondering, “So what in tarnation is this Monday Poll thing anyway!?”
Well, it isn’t exactly a poll. It’s more of a constantly evolving (devolving?), somewhat random list of questions I’ve been putting out to readers every Monday morning for the past seven years. (It’s like a kickstart for your brain.) I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
- Other than a hair brush (or comb), the hair styling tools I use most often are…
A hair dryer and a curling iron. I have an ancient t3 hairdryer I’ve had since 2007 that I still use and absolutely adore. I remember it costing an arm and a leg, but that thing is my ride or die, for sure! It dries my hair in less time than any hairdryer I’ve had before.
As for curling irons, I have a few of them that I rotate between, depending on the kind of hairstyle I’m going for, but lately I’ve been using my t3 Bodywaver more often than the others because of how great it gets that blown-out look with a round brush, without, ya know, me having to do the actual work.
- If I could give myself some advice today, I’d say…
Take it easy! — and don’t forget to take your breaks. I’ve been feeling a little anxious lately…I think because of hormones and just general pregnancy worry.
- What was the last thing you baked?
I made some applesauce and almond butter pancakes yesterday to bring along as snacks when we visit my parents in the East Bay, and they’re super delish!
They’re low in sugar and carbs (just a few grams from the applesauce and almond butter), so they’re an OK addition to ye olde gestational diabetes meal plan. You can have them for breakfast, like regular pancakes, but they’re one of my favorite afternoon and evening snacks. They’re yummy cold or warmed up in the microwave, and plain or topped with almond butter or peanut butter.
Sometimes, if I have a little extra room in my carb count, I’ll top them with a small amount of fruit, like a few blueberries or half a sliced banana.
And even if I wasn’t watching my carb count, they’re still delicious.
- What’s something you’d try doing if you knew you couldn’t fail?
I’d try my hand at writing a young adult novel because I’d love for Baby Girl to be able to say, “My mommy writes books!”
- I absolutely live for…
A great pair of shoes that also happen to be on sale. 🙂 Homegirl loves her footwear.
Your turn. 🙂 Just copy and paste the following questions into a comment with your answers. I look forward to reading ’em!

Only two more Mondays till 2016! Seriously, how did that even happen? Where does the time go…?
What did you do this weekend? If it involved last-minute Christmas shopping or watching the new Star Wars movie, we’re twinsies.
Have a great week. 🙂
