So…what is the Monday Poll?
Well, it isn’t exactly a poll. Είναι πολύ περισσότερο από ένα τακτικά εξελισσόμενο (devolvoling;), κάπως τυχαία λίστα ερωτήσεων που έχω βάλει στους αναγνώστες κάθε Δευτέρα το πρωί για τα τελευταία 10 (!) Χρόνια. (Είναι σαν ένα kickstart για τον εγκέφαλό σας.) Έχω πάντα ευχαρίστηση να διαβάζω τις απαντήσεις σας στα σχόλια και ελπίζω να απολαύσετε την ανάγνωση του ορυχείου. ?
1. If you could get a phone call from any individual today, who would it be?
Future me. Like, me in about 10 years, and I would ask her if there’s anything she’d do differently in life, work, with raising Connor…
Geez, why am I getting teary ideal now? Karen, get a grip, LOL!
OK, if we’re only talking about non sci-fi reality, then I would like to speak to brother, because he always makes me laugh.
2. What’s something you have in your makeup collection that you absolutely love and think everyone needs to have in their life ASAP?
Let’s see… I’m checking out my Mia Moretti makeup bag ideal now, which is a mess, by the way. It was only meant to be for my makeup necessities, but I just keep throwing stuff in there, and now I can’t even zip it shut, LOL!
Anyway, I think that everyone needs NARS Translucent Crystal setting powder. Granted, it’s not very sexy, but it’s beyond terrific for setting under-eye concealer, especially if you don’t want your concealer to look heavy or powdery or cake-y. I have three of them because I’m freaked out by the thought of them going away someday.
Γάτες & μακιγιάζ φούτερ;
3. What was the last book you read?
Instant mommy by Nia Vardalos. She’s the lady who wrote and starred in My big Fat Greek Wedding, and the book is about her journey through the process of adopting her daughter. I thought it was very interesting.
Before I got pregnant with Connor, El Hub and I had been trying for a long time (years), but we just couldn’t get pregnant, so we were like, “You know what? We’re going to adopt,” and ideal when we started seriously looking into it and weighing our options, lo and behold, I got pregnant.
4. Eyeshadow is…
Unnecessarily complicated sometimes, especially on YouTube. It’s lovely, though, and it’s my makeup weakness.
5. What’s one big life lesson you’ve learned?
That learning new things can be tough at the beginning, and you might suck at them, but you just have to get through that phase and over those horrible feelings of self-doubt. Then, as you start to figure things out, they get easier. The beginning is always the hardest part.
It took me a while to learn that one.
Good morning and delighted Monday!
See that cute hot pink stroller in the top pic? Yeah, it isn’t Connor’s. It’s a pet stroller for cats! Dogs can go in it too, but you know… #crazycatlady. I saw it at HomeGoods last weekend.
I would’ve loved it for Tabs, but something tells me he would *not* be into it at all… but I’m still going to keep holding on to my hot pink kitty stroller dreams.
OK, I’m off to take a quick walk. It’s fantastic how a walk can just absolutely make me feel so much better. Lately I’ve been taking walks around the circle throughout the day; I go out, hold the baby, we do a turn or two and then come back inside. It’s just so great to get some fresh air, change my view, listen to birds and look out for the neighborhood kitty cats. It’s such a small thing, but it’s a great thing, and I think it’s extra great to have those great things on a Monday.
Maybe try taking one or two today if you can.
