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?

If you're in the theater, maybe you need acrylic nails.  After seeing how they do it, you can buy the kits for cheap. ;)  I used to do my own acrylics. (not to brag...)

1. I don't generally use anything on my face other than soap or water. 2. I own neither. If it's too hot to eat outside, I'd rather eat inside. 3. Never had a mani or a pedi.

Surprised

You must have good genes.

My opinion: face moisturizers with spf are a hoax. 

Yup.

Now that I think about it, it was 3 times.  And yes, you can probably guess the occasions-- prom and my wedding.  The other time was a random one when my mom gave me a gift certificate to have one done.  I was really disappointed with each of them.  The first time, the paint job didn't look that much better than what I could do myself.  The second time, I had them do french tips, and again, it didn't look spectacular.  Neither time lasted that long.  The third time, I had acrylics put on (for my wedding), and I hated them.  They ruined my nails to put the darn things on, and it took forever to get my nails to look normal again after I took them off.  I have pretty nice nails to begin with though.

That sounds nice today as it is finally warm (but muggy) and sunny today. What do you do though when people come over to eat or you go outside to eat on the warm sunny days?

Usually for that kind of thing, we just sit in lawn chairs under trees.

No BBQs or dinners outside that you would need a table and chairs?

No.  Those kinds of things that I've been to are very informal and involve lawn chairs mostly.  Sometimes there is a picnic table for the kids, but again, usually under a tree, rather than a tent or umbrella.  My great aunt and uncle will sometimes get a tent to put up for our family reunion, if it's supposed to rain.  If it's a more formal thing, we eat inside.

I generally only use soap and water to wash my face too board and just a tiny bit of moisturizer in the morning...

as for the acrylic nails.. eh.. 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.

Oh ok. Never considered my backyard BBQs or dinners formal. lol. I just couldn't imagine having food and drinks out on lawn chairs, in the middle of the lawn, without some type of table to place the food and drinks for everyone so they didn't have to go back and forth inside for that.

Yes, us too.  Although we do have a picnic table (that my dad built), but it needs some repair.  And we have two chairs, two ottomans, a loveseat and a coffee table on the patio.   But no purchased shade.
