1. What did the kiddo's get in their Easter Baskets this year (if applicable)?

2. What color nailpolish do you have on your nails and toenails?

3. If you wear jewelry, do you buy more earrings, necklaces, rings or bracelets?

My alarm goes off at 5. I'm at the gym/lake by 5:20ish. Back home by 615. Breakfast, shepherd kids, pack lunch, shower, hair/makeup, dress, etc, kiss dh and am back out the door by 7:30 - sometimes earlier.

1. What did the kiddo's get in their Easter Baskets this year (if applicable)?  A chocolate bunny and a little bit of other candy.  The boys each got a book, oldest dd got a Starbucks GC and youngest dd got a DVD.  

2. What color nailpolish do you have on your nails and toenails?  None on my fingernails.  I never paint them as it's too much upkeep.  Funny thing about my toenails - I normally only paint them in the summer but two weeks ago was going to a party and was wearing shoes that showed a few of my toes on each foot.  I forgot that they hadn't been painted all winter and still had a bit of chipped polish on a few nails.  I didn't have time to do anything much about it, so I cleaned them off, put the shoes on, then painted only the toes that showed!  I keep forgetting to remove the polish so when I see my feet with only polish on a couple of nails, it looks ridiculous.  I need a pedi to clean up my feet, but am waiting for warmer weather.  Oh, as for color, it's kind of a dark pink/magenta.

3. If you wear jewelry, do you buy more earrings, necklaces, rings or bracelets?  I rarely buy jewelry.  I have several expensive rings that dh got me when he used to travel overseas but I don't change them often.  I don't really wear costume jewelry type rings (I don't like bulky jewelry on my fingers).  I have lots of earrings, but have been buying more necklaces lately as I really like how they can finish an outfit.  I love bracelets on other people but they get in the way of my lifestyle usually so I only wear them if I'm getting "dressed" for something nicer, like lunch with a girlfriend, a night out with dh, church.

That's the part about having short hair that I don't like, Bord. I always go in a week or two past when I *should*. Jams, I really like that cut, and was thinking about growing mine out like that... I still may, but I always pick things that look nice with short bangs. I can't stand my hair in my face! I usually get up at about 6 (no alarm), see my highschoolers off, and get younger son moving (the kid is a reader and I have to light a fire under him nearly every morning to get him to put his book down and get ready to go). Then I jump in the shower and get ready... probably about 30 mins (I've never timed it). After I get out, I usually have to remind the son to finish getting ready (he will read while eating breakfast, then just keep reading, lol). We are usually out the door by 8:30.

Sav, I like the last one,  but that's becasue I have curly hair and would kill to have hair like that. If I were to have it cut short, it would look like the first one no matter what I did. 

The older I get, the shorter my hair gets, but it's still shoulder-length right now. And from April to October when the humidity level is 75% or higher, I don't bother blow-drying it at all. It would only add frizz and take away curl, so why fight nature. ;)

Yep, Jam. My alarm goes off at 6am, get out of bed at 6:10 am totally ready (after getting everyone ready and out and things done around the house, 7:50. I then sit and have my breakfast and relax a little bit as I don't have to be at work until 9.

If I know I have to be somewhere in the morning I try to hop in the shower the night before otherwise I don't get a shower until after my kids get off to school.  But your schedule sounds like DD1's, She sets her alarm for 6:10 and by the time she is up, has breakfast and gets her hair and makeup done she's ready to leave for school by 7:00-ish.  Love that this is Spring break, Next Monday the drudgery begins again, Lol.

yeah I'm about 25 minutes from shower to hair to makeup to clothes... I think nearly 40 years in teh theater has given me the ability to do makeup in about 2 seconds.. and in summer time if I gel my spiky hair just right I don't have to even blow it dry...

That's me too bord, I actually just had my cut pretty short a few weeks ago for spring.  Love it short, but can't seem to find the time on a regular basis.

Mine tends to tell me I look good in what I'm *not* wearing ... Tongue Out

On work days, I'm half hour from getting in the shower and being fully dressed and madeup. Sometimes less.   I might stretch that to 45 min if I take special care of a special event or something.     And even the half hour seems too long to me -- thus part of the desire to chop the hair again.
