Sharing

I just felt the urge to share a few things. So that you know me better, I guess. I don't wear makeup. Or... I rarely wear makeup. When I'm hormonal and having breakouts, I wear some cover up and powder. But I am not one who enjoys or needs to spend 5, 10, 15 minutes in the mirror each day dealing with cover up, powder, foundation, blush, mascara, eye shadow, eye liner, lip liner, bronzer... I am perfectly comfortable without make up on. Not to say that I don't enjoy how I look with make up on! I just don't need make up to feel good or better about myself. (I do wear a little make up when I take pictures. That's due to my theatre background- I know that facial features need to be enhanced to be seen sometimes.) I love to read. But rarely have time anymore. And it sucks. I bought a book I've been wanting to read. It's been sitting by the front steps since Saturday and I haven't even opened it. When I take Teagan to dance class, it reminds me of the joy I got when I danced as a girl and again in college. One of these days, I will take a dance class at this studio, too. They offer adult classes and I really want to do it! I wear a pedometer every day. It's a challenge that I signed up for at my gym. Yesterday, I had a total of 13,801 steps. My minimum goal is 5,000 steps. My ideal daily goal is 10,000. I'd love to hit 15,000 sometime. I've learned that it is easier than I thought to stay moving, march in place, etc. I've also proven what I already knew- it can be hard to squeeze in focused time on exercise. Finding 20 minutes to go for a walk or an hour for the gym... that time just isn't always available. But I can stand up and march in place in front of the TV! My job is pretty dull but I have little things that make it bearable. I have a TV on my desk. I like to have it on but I don't sit and watch it. I do enjoy listening to the TV programs. Fluffy enough that I can tune them out. Can't listen to music because I want to sing and dance! I have a secret love of ABC Soaps. I watched in college. I stopped when I graduated. I started again when Teagan was born. I'm an off and on watcher... I can easily go a month or 2 without turning it on and then I'm hooked for weeks. I'm hooked right now (One Life to Live especially... the Starr/baby storyline). So now you know a little more about me. Nothing deep. So feel free to share some things that I should know about you!

Let's see...I'm not a big makeup wearer either...but I always have to put on lip gloss!

Last book I read was Randy Pausch's The Last Lecture. Great book. Still working on finishing Dr. Oz book, You Staying Young.

I have 2 kids. DS is 5 and DD is 16 mos. Worked as a marketing communications manager before becoming a SAHM. Would like a career someday, just not sure as what! lol.

Small world, I LOVE me some One Life to Live too. I grew up watching it with my Mom! Sometimes I will watch an entire week's worth of episodes on Sundays if I miss during the week to get caught up!

I am a real homebody and love being at home with my family.

Seems like I wrote a book, so I will stop for now! Maybe you can make this a weekly post, something new about your 'readers'! :)
