Monday Poll: November 5, 2012

I felt like doing a Monday Poll, like Karen did. I wasn’t feeling creative, so I just copied her questions.

Sad. 😦 I learned of a former co-workers’ passing while I was at work today. All I could think is that life is short and we need to enjoy every moment.

2.Mystery or romance?
Definitely mystery. I just watched the TV show Homeland for the first time and am already absorbed in the story because it’s a mystery.



3.The girls wanna go the movies to see the last Twilight. You in or out?
Out. I’d rather see Lincoln or Anna Karenina in the theater. Vampires aren’t my thing.



4.Have you ever won (or placed in) a limbo contest?
I don’t think I ever won one, but I loved roller skating limbo back in the 80’s. I was pretty good at it!

5.What time did you go to bed last night?
Around 10:15. We really need to get to bed earlier. I am always tired during the week.

6.When was the last time you felt really and truly alone?
Almost every day in the spring of 2007. I was living in California, not liking my job or social life and many days ended in tears.

7.When was the last time you felt really and truly loved?
I feel loved every single day, by my husband, cats and parents especially.

8.Is there anything you’d like to accomplish by the end of the year?
Yes, to figure out a new blog name soon. I’d also like to further explore how to turn my hobbies into a career.

9.How long are your nails?
They are on the shorter side. Since I type at work all day, I like to keep them as short as possible.

10.Weekly goals:
-get to the gym at least four times
-enjoy all that life has to offer because my former co-worker cannot do that anymore
-keep exploring new blog names
-find a vegetarian/vegan recipe for Thanksgiving dinner (any suggestions are most welcome). I finally have a fellow vegetarian at the dinner table this year, so I need to find something for the both of us to eat.


Monday poll

It’s been a while since I blogged. I just don’t feel inspired to write or take photos lately. I am sure it’s just a phase. Karen from Makeup and Beauty Blog always posts a fun Monday poll and reading it on my lunch break today inspired me to fill out her questions and post them on my own blog. By the way, I totally adore her blog because she posts great reviews of products, so I encourage you to check it out.

1. Mood:

Productive and happy. I felt pretty “off” last week in general and after running errands and cleaning up the house this weekend, I feel like I have a better start to this week.

2. How would you describe your current hairdo?

A work in progress. I have decided to grow it out (side swept bangs included because they never really swept with my lovely hairline being what it is) and get it back to my natural dark blonde color as much as possible.

3. Are you a Bond girl/guy?

Sure. I love a good mystery and a hunky lead actor. I prefer Daniel Craig as Bond.

4. How often do you wear concealer?

Every single day. Usually just under eye. I had to wear some Bobbi Brown corrector on my lovely zit today.

5. Do you believe you’d make a good reality TV show judge?

No way!

6. How did you spend your Sunday afternoon?

Hung out with my friends at a going away party–we had lunch, hung out by the pool, I teared up a little at the thought of our friend Laurie leaving for Germany for two years, clammored over some great products Laurie brought to share with us girls and ended it all with a brownie Blizzard at Dairy Queen. Then I went to my parents’ house to pick up some zucchini and eggplant, visit and talked to my mom about our trip to Europe.

7. Something you’d like to learn?

I won’t share the one thing I really would like to learn as it’s kind of personal, but I wish I spoke German fluently.

8. Do you have a signature makeup look?

No, just try to look as natural as possible.

9. What’s for lunch today?

A turkey, provolone, tomato and lettuce sandwich on whole wheat. Strawberries. A black cherry chobani. Maybe some chocolate for dessert.

10. Weekly goals:

-Keep up with cleaning our house
-Get to bed earlier (by 9:30) so I am not napping every night like I did last week
-Make a couple of new recipes incorporating the zucchini and eggplant I just got
-Read more. Currently reading: Paris in Love
-Take more walks with Craig now that our weather has cooled down a bit
-Make it to yoga once
-Blog more! 🙂

Hope you all are having a good Monday!
