Five Question Friday in Minnesota!!!

Happy Friday everyone! Can you believe that Christmas is only a week away?? We made it safe and sound to Minnesota this evening. It was a long flight and Emersyn was pretty fussy. Poor little sweetheart didn't really understand why she had to sit on our laps for 3 1/2 hours. She did sleep FINALLY for about an hour towards the end of the flight. She had to have worn herself out; Lord knows that she wore US out! We did bring her a couple Dum Dum suckers for an emergency and sure enough, we busted them out halfway through the flight. I tried to have one too for a little sugar boost but she got jealous of my blue sucker even though she was enjoying her yellow one so for a short time, she was double fisting it with a blue and yellow sucker and let me tell you, she was pretty proud of herself. :) Was that the worst part of our flight though, you ask? No, you want to know what was? The sickening realization that my makeup bag did not make it into the suitcase but was in fact sitting on my nightstand, probably wondering why I didn't take it. Girls, is there anything worse that you could leave behind?? My sweet sweet husband was saying that we could just go buy new stuff and then just use it all up over time. Well, most of my makeup is MAC and the brushes alone are a fortune and I just can't justify buying all new makeup but then I didn't want to go to Target and buy stuff to get buy when I have a bunch of brand new makeup at home, make sense? It was a lose lose situation. But then I realized that my little brother who also lives in Oregon with me will be coming to MN on Monday so he is going to swing by my house and grab the makeup bag. Now I won't look like a monster on Christmas.....just until Monday. :) You know those beautiful women that don't really need to wear make up? Yeah....I am NOT one of them!! :)

Okay, enough rambling about makeup. I hope I don't sound like a superficial person, it's just that I like to feel somewhat put together and make up helps accomplish that somewhat. :) I have to attribute some of that rambling to how delirious I am after a day of travel though so forgive me!! :)

Just because I am in MN doesn't mean I can't participate in Five Question Friday. If I'm not mistaken, Mama M lives in MN too right? :)

My Little Life

1. Which boygroup did you like most in your teens? Hmm....I was never a HUGE boy band follower....I did have a NKOTB pillowcase in 4th grade but that wasn't exactly my teens. I guess if I had to choose one that I liked in my teens I would pick NSYNC.

2. Do you do Christmas cards, letters, photos, nuthin', all of the above? Photo Christmas cards! Maybe *someday* I will get crafty and make homemade cards but not in the near future!! :)

3. If you could meet one celebrity who would it be and why? I would love to have coffee with Angie Smith and Rachelle P. Rachelle isn't famous but she would be SO mad at me if I had coffee with Angie Smith and didn't invite her. :) I think that Angie has such an amazing faith and testimony and I would love to hear her thoughts on life over a good latte. :)

4. Favorite thing to cook with (i.e. stainless, non-stick, Dutch oven, microwave, debit card...or, perhaps, a cauldron, etc.)? I am diggin' my panini grill lately! Wondering if I can find some healthy panini recipes to incorporate into the new year!

5. What is the one thing you wear the most, besides your unmentionables? Hmm...maybe a tie between my slippers and yoga pants? :)

Happy holidays everyone!! :)

Yeah! Flying with this age is EXHAUSTING! Jameson would always fall asleep about an hour before landing too!

Oooh, yeah leaving a make-up bag is definitely sucky. You could get the staples, and not buy brushes. Use your fingertips. Cotton balls, and those cheapy foundation sponges. Good luck! Have fun!

Glad you all made it safe and sound! Hope you enjoy your time away and extra time with that sweet baby girl!

I totally know the feeling about the make up bag! Hopefully she will be resting in your arms soon ;)

How fun! Minus the forgetting your makeup, because that's so not fun. One of the girls in the wedding I'm in today is in from Minnesota, and I LOVE listening to her talk. I also am in love with Prairie Home Companion, and one day would love to go see a show live. Anyway, you guys have a wonderful Christmas!!

Rachelle said...

What do you mean Rachelle is not famous?!?!? ha! And you are right I would absolutely KILL YOU if I found out you where having a latte with Angie Smith and did not invite me!

I forgot my makeup on my honeymoon! And at that time I probably did buy my makeup at a discount store... well, it was 1988!

I'd love for you to share some of your panini recipes. I got one a couple months ago and all I've made is grilled cheese.
