Oh, gosh. Maybe 4 a.m. or so?
Whenever it was, it was sinfully, criminally early.
I had one of those mornings last summer. I had a very early flight, so I set the alarm for 4 to give myself enough time to fix my mop and put on le warpaint before heading to the airport.
El Hub just doesn’t get it. Whenever we have to catch an early flight, he militantly insists that we sleep until the very last second before the alarm goes off, but he wakes up fully alert like a ninja! It’s like BOOM! Eyes open, wide awake. I swear he needs less than five minutes to get ready.
Simply put, I do not function that way. I need at least 20 minutes just to get my brain turned on. I like to get up, put something in my tum (doesn’t matter what time it is, I’m always starving when I wake up), have some coffee, and then I need 30-45 minutes to do my hair and makeup. Then maybe another 20 minutes to check and double-check and re-check everything to make sure I don’t forget something important like my driver’s license.
El Hub always gets super cranky when I set the alarm for an hour before we have to leave. It’s gotten to the point where I just tell him, “Sure, babe, the alarm is set to go off five minutes before we have to leave,” but really, I just set it for the real time I want to get up anyway, LOL!
How about you? What’s the earliest you’ve ever had to wake up and do your hair/makeup?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. BRB! I’m on my way out the door right now. I’m going to be a hair model this morning for my hairstylist buddy Alis, who’s teaching a class on Oribe products where she works. I’ve never done that before… I think it’ll be fun.
Then on the way back I have to swing by the MAC counter at the mall.
No, really, I “have” to, because yesterday I dropped my brand new bottle of Pro Longwear Concealer on the kitchen tiles, and it shattered.
I was probably more crushed than it was.
Grr… Those damned glass bottles.
Anywho, I should be back in a few hours. Have a great Tuesday. I’ll see you soon.
