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.
- Stripes, polka dots or florals?
I like ’em all, but right now I mostly like stripes. Stripes are classic. I really want a black and white striped shirt, but they have to be the right kind of stripes. I like them a certain width, and I prefer horizontal stripes. I really want a black and white… Well, what I really want is a shower, but a nice black and white horizontally striped top would also do. 🙂
And polka dots for Connor Claire.
- What’s your favorite cheesecake?
I’m a fan of the classic — regular ol’ plain cheesecake. I also like it when they come with fruit, because I’ve been going to town on fruit lately.
But then I also like the fancy cheesecakes you get at, like, The Cheesecake Factory, that you get with caramel or pumpkin. Lemon’s another favorite.
I’m an equal opportunity cheesecake lover.
- What spring flowers do you look forward to?
Freesia the most. I also look forward to tulips.
- Have you ever made homemade waffles?
No, but I’m on a mission to do it soon. I ate hundreds of frozen waffles while I was pregnant, and now I wanna learn how to make homemade waffles myself, so if you have a waffle iron you can recommend, let me know.
- If you could only have three pieces of makeup (only three) to do your makeup today, what would they be?
Today, I think I would really like to just hide my dark circles and any unevenness on my skin.
Actually, I just mostly want to hide the dark circles, so I’ll go with concealer, which I’d wear under my eyes, and then let the rest of the skin look very skin-like.
Then I’d use a dark brown eyeshadow like MAC Brun to fill in my brows. Then I’d wet Brun and use it to line my upper lash line. Then I’d apply mascara — probably a waterproof mascara — because waterproof holds a curl well, and I’ve been crying spontaneously (I think it’s just part of the process).
Your turn. 🙂 Just copy and paste the following questions into a comment with your answers. I look forward to reading ’em!
1. Stripes, polka dots or florals?
2. What’s your favorite cheesecake?
3. What spring flowers do you look forward to?
4. Have you ever made homemade waffles?
5. What three pieces of makeup (only three) would you like to have with you to do your makeup today?
Hi, my friend. Day two at home. I’m still processing the transition to becoming a mom and everything that happened last week… It hasn’t been easy, but every time I feel overwhelmed, I just remind myself who I am. I’m the sky, and what I’m feeling right now is just a temporary storm. It’ll pass.
Talk to you soon. Have a great day.
