Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 383

Published in: Just For Fun

Have I ever told you that I play pool?

Have I ever told you that I play pool?

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.

  1. My spirit animal is ______.
    A tiger! 🐯

    Because deep down inside I’m really just a big jungle cat who loves the water.

    Plus, the stripes, and you know how those never go out of style.

  2. Have you (or an airline) ever lost your luggage on a flight?
    Yes, and it was hella stressful, but at least it was on the way back home, and not on my way to the destination.

    It happened a few years ago on a quick connecting flight from Italy to Germany. It was one of those tight turnarounds where you have to run through the airport terminal to catch the connecting flight, and I guess my checked bag (which had all of my souvenirs in it, like boxes of Italian chocolate , which I really, REALLY wanted to eat, LOL!) got left behind.

    I learned a valuable lesson though. Ever since then I do whatever it takes to avoid from having to check in my bags, especially bags containing makeup and chocolate.

    Thankfully, the bag showed up at my doorstep in Novato about a week later (so I got my chocolate, yay!).

  3. Does your family have any summer traditions?
    No big ones, really, but El Hub and I do like to spend a weekend in Lake Tahoe. We like to kayak on the lake and hike and go out to dinner, but when we were planning to go a few weeks ago, we had to cancel at the last minute because it was straight-up raining up there, which is kind of weird for July.

    I’m hoping we can still make it out there before it gets chilly, maybe next month or early September.

  4. Bronzer makes me feel ______.
    ALIVE! ALIIIIIVE!!!

    And less like a member of the Army of the Undead.

  5. Lattes: with or without foam?
    Without, please.

    The foam does absolutely nothing for me. I’d rather have the foam space dedicated to filling up the cup with more latte.

Le List

Your turn. πŸ™‚ Just copy and paste the following questions into a comment with your answers. I look forward to reading ’em!

1. My spirit animal is ______.
2. Have you (or an airline) ever lost your luggage on a flight?
3. Does your family have any summer traditions?
4. Bronzer makes me feel ______.
5. Lattes: with or without foam?

Hello, sweet pea!

I’m back and oh, so relaxed after spending the weekend with my high school pals Jen and Cindy. It was a belated birthday sleepover involving a whole lotta nothing and the hotel pool.

It’s amazing what a little lounging around can do for your soul. I feel like a reenergized Energizer Bunny Karen.

I hope you were able to get in some relaxing yourself last weekend. How are you doing today? How’s your morning been so far?

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

    Wohoo! Monday poll!
    1) my spirit animal is definitely a grey wolf. They speak to my soul and I love the fact that when they mate, it’s for life πŸ™‚

    2) yes πŸ™ Delta lost my luggage and found it two days into a 3 day trip so… Not helpful. United lost it once too on my way back from Botswana which was terrible but I ended up meeting my husband because of it so….yay!

    3) my family was never big on summer. We’re winter people!

    4) fancy! I only ever wear it when I dress up so it’s my fancy makeup haha

    5) I’m actually a cappuccino person so the more foam the better! In fact, all foam would be perfect!

    Happy Monday!

    • Leah G. says:

      I’m a winter person too (as is my husband).

      That’s amazing that you met your husband due to lost luggage after a Botswana adventure! πŸ™‚

      • Karen says:

        It’s pretty crazy, actually! I was a complete mess, distraught over my luggage, and he offered to help me. After helping me find clothes for the next day and file my lost luggage report, he left only to come straight back with a Three Musketeers saying “I hear chocolate helps…I’m sorry it’s not better…” Needless to say, I was head-over-heels!

  3. Syah says:

    1. My spirit animal is a domesticated cat for sure. Lots of time to dedicate for deep thoughts, food and grooming.
    2. Have you (or an airline) ever lost your luggage on a flight? No. Thank god. But I’ve heard that a good tip to avoid ‘lost checked luggage’ panic is to only check in stuff that you would be OK without.
    3. Does your family have any summer traditions? The Boy and I enjoy getting sushi or making sandwiches and going for a picnic.
    4. Bronzer makes me feel like I actually look tan and alive!
    5. Lattes: with or without foam? No foam!

  4. Chelsea says:

    1. My spirit animal is a bunny. Are you shocked, LOL? Rabbits are kind of shy, keep to themselves, but are still social. And while bunbuns aren’t seen as particularly vicious, they can really fight if they have to (My dad saw a momma bunny attacking a hawk who was trying to get at the baby bunnies up north… Dad went out and helped her).

    Otherwise, Mark Twain has a quote about redheads being descended from cats, and that can be pretty accurate with regard to my ideal sleep habits!

    2. Have you (or an airline) ever lost your luggage on a flight? Yup! En route to Cannes! Super stressful, and the weather was so hot and sweaty.

    3. Does your family have any summer traditions? Um, at the end of every school year my parents would play Aluce Cooper’s “School’s Out” really loudly through the house. My grandma also does a family reunion.

    4. Bronzer makes me feel no differently!

    5. Lattes: with or without foam? I hate coffee and am banned from caffeine due to a heart condition.

  5. Rachel R. says:

    1. My spirit animal is ______. A unicorn: Fantasy, rainbows, and glitter with a nasty weapon attached.

    2. Have you (or an airline) ever lost your luggage on a flight? No, but I rarely fly. Once every 10-15 years.

    3. Does your family have any summer traditions? No, unless you count allergies and air conditioning.

    4. Bronzer makes me feel ______. Like an Oompa Loompa. They’re all way too dark and way too orange. (Except for Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil.)

    5. Lattes: with or without foam? I don’t drink coffee, except in the form of a Starbuck’s Mocha Frappacino.

  6. 1. My spirit animal is ______.
    A duck I guess. Sounds kind of boring but whenever I am at a place I feel at home you can bet that there are ducks just around the corner.

    2. Have you (or an airline) ever lost your luggage on a flight?
    No. *Knock on wood*

    3. Does your family have any summer traditions?
    Despite going out and eating ice cream? No, but I think that is sufficient.

    4. Bronzer makes me feel ______.
    Less pale and thus more healthy and energized.

    5. Lattes: with or without foam?
    Without Latte. But IΒ΄ll take my Chai with foam.

  7. Ruchita says:

    1. My spirit animal is ______.
    A housecat. I love napping, eating and grooming. πŸ™‚

    2. Have you (or an airline) ever lost your luggage on a flight?
    Once years ago, when I was a kid and I was traveling with my family back from India. I didn’t care much back then, but now that’s one of my worst fears! If I check my bags, one of the best parts of vacation is seeing my suitcase show up on that luggage carousel.

    3. Does your family have any summer traditions?
    When I was first married, we used to go on a family camping trip with my father-in-law. However, after a few times it go to be too much work so now we just chill inside with the A/C.

    4. Bronzer makes me feel ______.
    Awake and alert, even if I’m not!

    5. Lattes: with or without foam?
    No foam, but whipped cream would be okay!

    Happy Monday!

  8. Lauren says:

    What a gorgeous, relaxing pic!!

    1) spirit animal: unicorn and mermaid. I want to be able to fly, run on land AND swim! In reality, I’d be some kind of bird. I want to fly and see it all!

    2) has an airline ever NOT lost my luggage?! πŸ™ it’s very stressful when it happens.

    3) when I was younger, camping was a tradition. No traditions now…we are all scattered with different schedules.

    4) bronzer: ahhhh! I feel healthy and glowy! I used to worship the sun, and stay out of it now that I’m getting older. I love matte bronzer. I can do without the shimmer. Rimmed sun bronze and I are bff’s!

    5) no foam!! Fill it up w caffeine!

  9. Jessica says:

    Coffee = ICK :p

  10. Caro says:

    1. My spirit animal is ______.
    That’s kinda hard. I think it’s a toss up between a kitty, cause I’m exceptional at lounging, or something really cute and snuggly.

    2. Have you (or an airline) ever lost your luggage on a flight?
    YES. But thankfully there really wasn’t much in the bag. I was going home for a visit and was planning on bringing my winter clothes back with me since I didn’t really bring them when I moved. I didn’t need to bring much with me so I just put most of my stuff in my carry on, but the airline decided that because the bag was almost empty, they didn’t want to fly it out to where I was going. Nice try. They located the bag still at the original airport and sent it along about a week later. Clearly they didn’t think it was that important.

    3. Does your family have any summer traditions?
    For as long as I can remember, we’ve spent the first couple weeks of July camping. We go to a place where the campground in in the sand dunes right on a lake. In fact, my dad was camping there when he was a teenager. Both my parents are teachers so they always have the summer off. It’s still a tradition that we look forward to all year. We actually book it right after Christmas!

    4. Bronzer makes me feel ______.
    Healthy and alive.

    5. Lattes: with or without foam?
    No foam. I can’t stand just regular coffee and prefer fancy coffee drinks, but I don’t like toppings. No foam, no whip cream, no nothing. Except for the occasional bit of caramel drizzle. Mmmm!

  11. Shannon says:

    Glad to hear your refreshed, Karen!! <3 I'm looking forward to some relax-y times in about a week and a half… oooh, it can't come soon enough πŸ™‚

    1. My spirit animal is ______.
    Sloth was the first thing that came to mind, lol! I love me some napping and slow movement… although a dog probably wouldn't be too far off. I love companionship and cuddles and walks, so I think I'd be pretty content as a dog. πŸ™‚
    2. Have you (or an airline) ever lost your luggage on a flight?
    Yes! Ugh. On my first trip to NYC – they thankfully showed up a day or two later, but gosh it was annoying. I only ever bring carry-ons these days (if I can).
    3. Does your family have any summer traditions?
    Hmmm… I feel like we kind of started one last year, when all of my hubby's family gathered upstate for Labor Day. We're doing it again this year, and I'm crossing my fingers it will turn into a yearly thing!
    4. Bronzer makes me feel ______.
    fancy. I don't tend to use it much (I depend more on blush these days to fill out my color) so bronzer feels like a special occasion πŸ™‚
    5. Lattes: with or without foam?
    Medium foam, please! At least enough for latte art πŸ™‚

  12. Sara says:

    Hi Karen! Hope you had a good weekend and are ready for a new week! I’m a little blah today, because well of course being Monday, and I have a colonoscopy this week and start my prep tomorrow:( Bleh. But trying to stay positive!

    1. My spirit animal is…oh man this is a tough one. I’ll just say an elephant because they’re my favorite haha

    2. Have you (or an airline) ever lost your luggage on a flight?
    No thank goodness!

    3. Does your family have any summer traditions?
    My husband and I go up to Maine a few times every Summer with my sister in law and brother in law. we always stay at the same place, where we got married a few years ago! I also go once every summer with my mom which we just did last week. It’s my favorite place in the world.

    4. Bronzer makes me feel…alive!

    5. Lattes: with or without foam? No foam please:)

  13. Kim says:

    Happy Monday! Sounds like a great weekend. I’m very under the weather and not sure if it is a touch of the flu or food related but it hit me hard last night and hasn’t improved too much. πŸ™ Still, I must press on!

    1. My spirit animal is a hawk. Only for the flying part, though, really.
    2. Have you (or an airline) ever lost your luggage on a flight? Yes, I seem to vaguely recall an airline losing one once but, like you, it was on my way home and I got it back – it was mostly dirty clothes, so no big deal.
    3. Does your family have any summer traditions? We take a week vacation and go to the ocean. This year will be VA Beach with a stop in Philly on the way home to get a little history. πŸ™‚
    4. Bronzer makes me feel orange/splotchy. I know, I’m not doing it right.
    5. Lattes: with or without foam? With, I suppose. But, I’d be fine without, too.

  14. Lulle says:

    1. My spirit animal is ______.
    The cat, of course. Just chillin’ all day long and having an attitude!

    2. Have you (or an airline) ever lost your luggage on a flight?
    Nope, and I’ve traveled quite a bit!

    3. Does your family have any summer traditions?
    We launched a BBQ tradition with friends. Last year was the “The Summer of Ribs” and this year we went for “The Summer of Kebabs”. We just try all the different recipes we can find for those things throughout the summer.

    4. Bronzer makes me feel ______.
    Less pale! Well it was especially true before I moved to SoCal and my face got one or two shades darker from the permanent sun. Before I used to be very pale, but in a way that didn’t look pretty like Snow White, more like unhealthy, and bronzer really helped me look less washed out.

    5. Lattes: with or without foam?
    Without. If I want foam, I’m gonna go for a cappuccino!

    4. Bronzer makes me feel ______.
    You know, I’m getting curious about it, but I’ve always foregone it’s usage in favor of embracing the glow in the dark…
    But seems very glam!

    5. Lattes: with or without foam?
    Never had with (or without? Don’t remember >.<), but seems dreamy.

    Feline or some kind of bird. I identify with both species.
    2. Have you (or an airline) ever lost your luggage on a flight?
    Yes on a Baltimore trip around the Christmas holidays! But they found it the next day and delivered it to my Mom’s house. My daughter and husband’s luggage also was lost and found on various family trips. A real PIA when you need your stuff on a trip.

  19. Leah G. says:

    Hi Karen,

    I had a rough start to my day mostly due to being away for the weekend at our place in Maine. It’s always hard to go back to the regular routine. πŸ™‚

    1. My spirit animal is ______. A turtle! I’ve gotten henna twice now on two different yoga retreats and both designs were a turtle on my upper arm.

    2. Have you (or an airline) ever lost your luggage on a flight? No, but I’ve had an airline destroy my luggage and have to give me a new suitcase on the spot (which only lasted a few weeks after that). That was when I learned the valuable lesson of using the inside straps to secure the clothing because I did not lose anything! πŸ™‚

    3. Does your family have any summer traditions? We go to Maine together for the 4th of July and stay a few days afterwards. It’s super relaxing and we usually have a lobster night!

    4. Bronzer makes me feel ______. Wonderful. I love wearing bronzer in the warmer months. My favorite is Laura Mercier.

    5. Lattes: with or without foam? With foam.

  20. Tatiana says:

    1. My spirit animal is ______.
    Tigger from Winnie the Pooh. Because a real tiger is just way to dignified for me. I’m more goofy and bouncing off the walls.
    2. Have you (or an airline) ever lost your luggage on a flight?
    Ugh, Yes.
    Went back to the frozen tundra of the midwest one Christmas and one of our two bags was lost. Luckily they didn’t lose my daughter’s bag. We got in late and huddled together in one bed to keep warm. I went shopping the next day and bought some undies and one outfit (which wasn’t as nice as the one I had planned). Thankfully, my usually particular mother was understanding. After a week of calls to the airline and being on hold for hours we headed back home. After we checked in for our return flight I went down to the luggage office. There was my bag all locked up. I’m guessing it was sitting there all week long and no one was willing to deliver it to my mom’s house 45 minutes away from airport. I reclaimed the bag and had it checked onto return flight. Unfortunately, I am not a light packer, so I’ve never figured out how to get a week to two weeks worth of clothes and essentials into a carry on bag. Which seem to be getting smaller and smaller as airlines tighten their restrictions.
    3. Does your family have any summer traditions?
    We have no traditions at all. The DH and I are kind of “let’s wing it” people. We came from completely different backgrounds and both dislike Christmas. So while we have no summer traditions, lately we’ve been heading to Tokyo for the holidays. If you do it more than one year in a row, it’s almost a tradition, isn’t it?
    4. Bronzer makes me feel ______.
    Dirty. I’m so fair and I have yet to find a bronzer that no matter how lightly I apply it, doesn’t make me look like smudged my face. I embrace my paleness while continuing the search.
    5. Lattes: with or without foam?
    I guess without, because an iced latte is the only way I’ll drink one. I’m so particular about my coffee drinks that I rarely get coffee anywhere but at the Venetian cafe nearby. Unless I happen to stumbler upon another Venetian place in my travels.

  21. Cory says:

    1. My spirit animal is a Kodiak bear.
    2. I have thankfully not lost luggage because I take it all on board with me! β€”we females can get away with this because we also carry purses, & mine are huge lol
    3. No summer traditions..
    4. Bronzer makes me feel shady as hell
    5. Lattes: with or without foam? With

  22. Allison C says:

    1. My spirit animal is a flamingo because coral is my favorite color.
    2. Have you (or an airline) ever lost your luggage on a flight? unfortunately quick a few times including at least once when I was on a business trip and needed the clothing in my bag!
    3. Does your family have any summer traditions? going to the beach club that we all belong to
    4. Bronzer makes me feel like my face is dirty.
    5. Lattes: with or without foam? foam of course!

    So amazed and impressed that you’ve been able to keep coming up with new questions every week for 7 years, Karen, but then you are mega-creative so I shouldn’t be surprised!

  23. Stephanie says:

    1. My spirit animal is ______. Probably a domestic cat or a lion.

    2. Have you (or an airline) ever lost your luggage on a flight? Yes, a few times. Once when we went to Hawaii it didn’t make the island hopper flight to Maui. Once when we went on a cruise. Thankfully we were spending the night in Miami before the cruise. We told the hotel front desk to call ANY TIME if it arrived. At 1AM they called and it had finally arrived from the airport. I HATE carrying a bunch of crap on the plane, but I always take my makeup and some bras, undies and at least one outfit. The whole carry on thing stresses me out, there is never enough room to put my stuff near my seat. (pet peeve is when people at the back of the plane put their stuff in the front of the plane for their convenience!)
    3. Does your family have any summer traditions? My nephew’s birthday is the 4th of July. When he was little we always had a big party for him. He’s 21 now and sort of outgrown that tradition.

    4. Bronzer makes me feel ______. Like a clown. I’m super pale and they just never look right on me. I either look dirty or like a clown.

    5. Lattes: with or without foam? Foam, I’d rather taste the coffee than have more milk to water it down.

  24. Erin says:

    1. My spirit animal is ______.

    Karen Walker from Will and Grace.

    2. Have you (or an airline) ever lost your luggage on a flight?

    Yes. I was without it for 4 days and all I got was a $50 voucher.

    3. Does your family have any summer traditions?

    We used to take a trip at the end of summer/beginning of fall if we had the money when I was a kid to Mendocino, that is when the water is the warmest. We currently have no traditions as we are all spread out. Swimming at Grandma’s was always a treat growing up too.

    4. Bronzer makes me feel ______.

    Dirty. I can only take a very light dusting with the right one or I look like Pigpen.

    5. Lattes: with or without foam?

    With, but make it soy please. Unless I’m in the EU and then let’s make it Breve πŸ™‚

  25. Jen L says:

    Hiya!

    Whatta list:

    1. My spirit animal is bear/badger – something with a pointy nose that scavenges!
    2. Have you (or an airline) ever lost your luggage on a flight? no thank heavens!
    3. Does your family have any summer traditions? we share a family cabin on Emma Lake in N SK, so we go there, not really a tradition, more a mad rush for sunshine and boating!
    4. Bronzer makes me feel – never tried it, I am very pale and slightly afraid I will look ridiculous.
    5. Lattes: with or without foam? – never had one. I drink my coffee black w raw sugar. if it’s really hot I’ll try something iced with soy, but the coffee people usually screw that up (!)

  26. Jisu Kim says:

    1. My spirit animal is ______.
    Probably a cat.
    2. Have you (or an airline) ever lost your luggage on a flight?
    Nope but I don’t have much experience flying. However, I did have my wallet stolen right before a vacation.
    3. Does your family have any summer traditions?
    Nope, in fact, my family doesn’t have any traditions.
    4. Bronzer makes me feel ______.
    More Confident !
    5. Lattes: with or without foam?
    Without please. Like you, I rather have it filled with more hot milk πŸ™‚

  27. Kate & Zena says:

    Long time without commenting! I’ve been so busy! I’ve gone to Upper Michigan, done four horse shows and gotten a tattoo! SO BUSY!

    1. My spirit animal is ______.
    I’d probably have to say, at the moment, a wolf. I’m fiercely protective of family, territorial for the most part, and I’m very shy and wary of others. I like having fun, but it’s mostly with family, especially my mom. And I LOVE nature…except mosquitoes. As far as I am concerned, I wish someone would find a way to make those buggers go away entirely.

    2. Have you (or an airline) ever lost your luggage on a flight?
    NEVER! I haven’t been on planes many times though (and again, the fierce territorial-ness usually means I try to go with a carry on!)

    3. Does your family have any summer traditions?
    I try to go up to Tomahawk to visit my aunt every summer. Her house is a lake house and it’s in what we call “the hinterlands” as getting Wifi is hard! The Internet on Wifi goes at a snail’s pace! But, that means I go out and have fun…and her place has THE BEST ice cream shoppe EVER. Sooooo good.

    4. Bronzer makes me feel ______.
    Overdone. I just don’t like it!

    5. Lattes: with or without foam?
    Would it be bad if I said I’ve never had a latte? The closest “foamy” thing I’ve had is a milkshake or hot cocoa….and I like my hot cocoa sans whip cream, marshmallows and chocolate chips. I like it plain!

  28. Kelly says:

    1. My spirit animal is ______.
    Normally I would say a cat, one of those that are accident-prone and really silly, but lately I’m feeling more like a sloth; super tired, sleepy, and slow! Sloths are adorable though, so I’m fine with that. πŸ™‚

    2. Have you (or an airline) ever lost your luggage on a flight?
    I haven’t, which I find surprising for how much I travel. Actually I’ve left my sunglasses on the plane before, does that count? They were Ray Bans, so I was (and still am) super bummed about losing those. πŸ™

    3. Does your family have any summer traditions?
    None that I can think of. Sorry this answer is so boring.

    4. Bronzer makes me feel ______.
    Tan! And warm, haha. I am perpetually pale, and have never been able to tan. (One of the problems being a ginger.) Bronzer makes it look like I actually saw some sun this summer.

    5. Lattes: with or without foam?
    Hmm, I don’t think I’ve had a latte before. I’m more of a tea person, and no sweetener! I like my tea bitter like my soul, muahaha!

    Some good friends of mine are moving to Truckee, CA to be at Lake Tahoe for life, it sounds like a place I need to visit at some point soon!

    1. My spirit animal is ______.
    ~A horse. I’ve always admired and loved how horses have a free spirit. I really love being around them out West, in that wild, rugged landscape. I trained horses for many years, but one thing I’ve never done is ride out in that wild terrain.

    2. Have you (or an airline) ever lost your luggage on a flight?
    ~They haven’t yet, but when I actually do connecting flights it could be a possibility. I always keep my makeup with me, though, and I figure out what I can bring with me that won’t take up space in the carry-on and is a solid (in terms of makeup).

    3. Does your family have any summer traditions?
    ~We love eating garden-fresh veggies and now that most of us have moved out to the country, we love a good bonfire with beer/wine/booze.

    4. Bronzer makes me feel ______.
    ~More sexy and tan. It just gives me a good glow! In the winter time, if I don’t use bronzer, I like a good illuminating powder to get the same effect on pale skin.

    5. Lattes: with or without foam
    ~A little bit of foam, but not too much.

    4. Bronzer makes me feel like I really tried to do something special with my makeup.

    5. Lattes: with or without foam? No foam. Foam just takes up space of my milk πŸ™‚

    1. My spirit animal is for sure a big jungle cat of some sort with massive paws and sharp teeth and razor sharp eyesight and hearing. Oh what I could do with some big kitty cat senses.
    2. Have you (or an airline) ever lost your luggage on a flight? I think that while traveling with my son years ago the airline lost his carseat.
    3. Does your family have any summer traditions? Spending as much time as possible at the family camp on Toddy Pond. It’s magic.
    4. Bronzer makes me feel like a ho. I just can’t wear it.
    5. Lattes: with or without foam? No latte. A very, very dry (meaning a ton of foam) cappuccino.

  32. Kwmechelle says:

    1. My spirit animal is ______. A horse. Not sure what kind of horse but I LOVE them. It may have to do with the fact that my dad used to raise them with his neighbor when he was a child.

    2. Have you (or an airline) ever lost your luggage on a flight? No but that is, like, one of the things that I fear most. Weird, I know…

    3. Does your family have any summer traditions? Nope.

    4. Bronzer makes me feel ______. Gorgeous! I used to be confused as to why brown women would want to wear bronzer. Then I discovered the CG Queen Collection bronzer & the rest is history. Even when I forgo blush, I NEVER skip bronzer.
    5. Lattes: with or without foam? Neither?! Yeah, I’m not really a coffee drinker. I do, however, moonlight as a serious coffee drinker by buying ONLY flavored coffee + flavored creamer & mixing both + sugar until it tastes like candy πŸ™‚

    #2. We had been kayaking in Greenland and had about 5 duffel bags with the folding kayak, paddles, PFDs, tent, stove and everything else. Two of the biggest bags didn’t make it back home with us and that turned out to be just fine because we didn’t have to drag them through customs and they delivered them right to the door three days later. Thank goodness it didn’t happen on the way to Greenland because we really would have been up a fjord without a paddle (or a kayak)!

  34. Nicole says:

    1. My spirit animal is ______
    Kat Von D! I love her style, the makeup she curates, and her art.

    Never lost my luggage.

    There is a Native American festival we try to make every year. I can’t think of anything else.
