Housekeeping...You want mint for pillow?

A couple of weeks ago, I was all, "I'm on a roll with this blogging bidness! Look how I'm uncharacteristically posting every week day!"

And then the fire burned out.

Back to sporadically unscheduled programming.

I do have a few matters of semi-importance to take care of today:

1) The WINNER of the Family Life Organizer and Planner is comment #2, Christy! Christy, if you're reading this, email me and we'll work out the details. Congratulations!

And thanks to everyone who left me a comment and/or tweeted about my giveaway. I really appreciate it.

2) I never go anywhere without mascara (or lipgloss, but that's a mundane tale for another day when you think things ). Yet, I'm a self-proclaimed waterproof mascara hater because it NEVER COMES OFF and I hate that stale clumpy eyelash feeling first thing in the morning.

Unfortunately, Texas summers are so hot you think your skin is going to melt right off your bones. And I'm a sweater. Not as in "the garment," but as in "one who." Therefore, I've decided to give the waterproof mascara another shot. My L'Oreal Voluminous mascara just can't withstand the sweat. Or the pool water. Please suggest a fabulous waterproof mascara that will hold up beautifully, no matter if I'm swimming or dehydrating.

3) I'm hoping that AI will be interesting enough tonight that I will find the drive to recap it for tomorrow. Last week's draft post never saw the light of publish because I found that it was reading pretty much like every other recap I've written this season: Lee- great, Crystal- great, Siobahn- wierd, Aaron- awkward, Casey- cover band good, Big Mike- good, but not good enough to win. And so forth.

And a piece of AI joy has been stolen from me since I went to the "lady doctor" (as Jason loves to call it) yesterday and he told me I need to lose 20 lbs. Which means kicking the Tuesday night Oreo habit with my girls. Oh, but you can bet we'll still be armchair judging with the best of them.

Have a great day!


  1. Do you know that it is Shania Twain week? I'm not foreseeing good things.

  2. I used to wear some type of mascara that I just loved. It was waterproof too. I can't remember the name but it was definitely by either Almay or CoverGirl or Maybelline. It was a silver tube with blue writing, and I got it because it was specifically for contact-lens wearers. I got it in Waterproof, which is all I wear because I cannot stand it when mascara smudges. And, I used the neutrogena eye makeup remover which ROCKS - it takes off waterproof mascara like a breeze.

  3. Found it online. Hallelujah Google.

    It's "Professional" mascara by Cover Girl. It comes in waterproof. I remember that it wasn't too clumpy, which is how I find that pink-n-green tube that everyone loves so much. And it didn't smudge.

    Lately I've been doing the Lash Discovery because McMommy recommended it. It's okay but I think I'm going back to my Professional.

  4. Please don't tell me that about TX or I may refuse to move there.

  5. High five from another Baylor girl who doesn't leave home without mascara on! I've been using Maybelline Colossal (waterproof) lately. And I've been crying a lot AND it's been staying on. I don't like having to use makeup remover every day, but I do like this mascara.
