project 31 - days nine, ten and eleven


I knew I had missed a day, or two, but I didn't realize I was four days behind on the posts! Yikes!

Let's catch up, shall we?

Day 9. What virtues do you value in yourself?

This is a tough one for me. I tend to overlook or minimize the good qualities in myself. I know that they're in there. I just don't really notice them. And I certainly don't talk about them. So this question made me stop for a moment and take stock.

I am patient. Things that drive other people crazy often don't bother me. I can play with the same toy with Jack over and over and over again. He will tire of it before I will.

I am creative. I love to create. I love to design and write and read. I love to look at what others have created, and gain inspiration from it.

I am assertive. I will stand up for what I know is right, and let my opinion be known. I stand up for myself and for my loved ones.

I am funny. Although, I feel like a huge phoney writing that one because isn't funny really one of those things that other people think you are? If you say you're funny, isn't that like one step beyond laughing at your own jokes? I don't think you're supposed to say, "I am funny."

Day 10. What are some of your favorite MAC products, and what foundation/powder do you wear?

Oh, MAC. How I love thee. I used to be a total MAC junkie. Then, I started working at an Aveda salon, and I felt like I was cheating on Aveda every time I bought MAC. So I took a hiatus. But I'm a MAC girl at heart.

Some of my favorites in no particular order:

Viva Glam V lipstick
naked lunch eye shadow
patina eye shadow
star violet eye shadow
nc20 studiofix
springsheen blush

Can you tell that I'm into the pinky-browns? I also love, love, love StudioFix Powder plus Foundation. So easy to use, and you can customize the coverage. I should get me some, again.

I don't think I've ever tried a MAC product that I didn't like. I've used the brushes, eye shadow, foundation, lip stick, lip glass, eye liner, mascara, fragrance... Maybe the only thing I haven't tried is the nail polish.

This really makes me want to drive to the nearest MAC counter and get a little make-over. Too bad the closest one is 150+ miles away.

Love, love, love MAC.

Day 11. Post a recipe. Or if you don't cook, try a new recipe and write about how it turned out (pictures please!).

I ate this weekly when I was pregnant with the Boy. I was pretty sure that my amniotic fluid was turning into wing sauce. Still, I never tire of it.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

1 package softened cream cheese
2 cups shredded or cubed chicken (I use rotisserie chicken)
3/4 c. chunky bleu cheese dressing
1/2 - 3/4 c.hot wing sauce (Frank's hot sauce)
1/2 package shredded cheddar cheese
Spread cream cheese in bottom of a 9x13 baking dish. Mix hot wing sauce, bleu cheese dressing and the chicken, and pour on top of the cream cheese. Top with cheddar cheese.Bake at 400 until cheese is melted and bubbly - about 20 minutes.

I'll post Day 12 later today, and then I'll be all caught up again.
