1. Favorite face moisturizer? (My clinique is running out and wondered if there is something better or same quality without breaking my face out)

2. Outside--which do you prefer or have....table with umbrella or table under a tent/gabezo?

3. When getting a mani/pedi, do you always get both at the same time?

I type SO much for work, for my freelancing that nails frankly get in the way.. I rarely play the type of roles that call for fancy nails.. I usually play the character parts in comedies, dramas and musicals... back in the day when I was playing Adelaide in Guys and Dolls and Kate in Kiss me Kate I may have painted them but that ship has sailed LOL.  now I'm doing roles like the Helen Mirren role i Calendar Girls (which I adore) and broader or more substantial part. </p>

Wow, you were Elizabeth Taylor in Shakespeare.  I love that play.  Yes, I can see how fake nails would get in the way of work.  I want to watch Calendar Girls soon.

What a nice way to bring neighbors together.  Open fires to burn brush are outlawed here because I guess we can't be trusted with matches.

It's not always a matter of cost. i've considered getting a fire pit, but I worry too much that the rising heat from it could damage my massive maple trees, and getting one would require i put in a patio out back (which will cost way more than $100.  The side patio has a cover, so it's unsuited for a fire pit.  Eventually, I'd like a sunroom off the master bedroom and i intend to have a wood burning stove out there.  And I have such a pretty fireplace inside, it's enough.

Cupholders, but do they have a canopy?

Have you tried L'Oreal?   It's not completely cheap, but a think it's a step below department store prices with the same quality.  So many kinds too.

For myself, I've researched it.  I've followed the same manicurist (she moves around ;), supply my own tools/polishes/acrylic powders, etc.  I've known ladies who've gotten acrylics for decades without any infection.

Ha, that's a cute chair.  No our logs we sit on definitely don't have a canopy. : )  Our chairs do not either--I'm thinking they would be good down by ya'll because it would shade you from the sun, in addition to rain.  We don't need shade from sun around here, if we get sun, the hottest it gets anymore is 60-70.  80 on a rare day.  And if it's raining, I'm not usually sitting outside! : )

Well.. I was Katherine in Kiss me Kate- not Taming of the Shrew (although I would have loved that too) but that was 16 years ago back when I had long hair and no child LOL... but it remains one of my most favorite roles ever.     I just did the Helen Mirren role (Chris) in the play version of Calendar girls in a staged reading for a director's workshop... it was HEAVEN -- six women all between the ages of 45-65 -- no egos, no vanity, no worrying about the young ingenue in the show who is gorgeous and perfect -- just real women real bodies and real flaws..and some hella good actresses.  It was one of the most rewarding experiences artisticall i've ever had...

Yeah, our firepit is no where near trees to start a fire.

I've seen those chairs before Thardy. Very good if you don't like the sun. I keep 4 chairs in my car at all times in case we ever need them.
