    I always skip the beauty parts! Phew, I thought I was the only woman who did, it’s nice to know there are others out there!!!
    The only prank I’ve heard of so far was someone on the radio foiling the entire studio for the next presenter….very odd.!

    So I hit refresh this morning, read the title, and the following is what went through my head…

    What? Who is “we’re”? Wait…what is today? Oh, april fools day….nice.

    haha 🙂 Great breakfast (as always)- you make the best looking combos. Parfait- type breakfasts are my fav. Good luck this weekend! You make me want to run another race but I just don’t have time with all my group fitness teaching! Happy Easter (early)

    I skim through the beauty parts because the advice is never appropriate for Asian girls like me!

    I almost forgot it was April Fools day! Yours was a good one. 🙂

    I tend to skip over the beauty sections as well, I never can make things look the way they do, anyway! I guess its a talent I didn’t get.

    I read the beauty section, but as an outsider- I always stick to the same products anyways!

    I very rarely ready hair or makeup sections of magazines. they are just trying to get you to buy their makeup, and the hair stuff never works for me so i just skip it!

    you will be in NOLA, my hometown!!

      This is exactly right – the beauty sections are mostly about the products, which I know I’m never going to buy anyway!

    HILARIOUS starbucks link! Although I secretly wish I could get that big of a mug

    I skip the beauty sections too…I always just do my hair and makeup in the same way, so I never really think about using their tips for lavender eye shadow, or whatever 🙂

    I totally skip the beauty sections. Boooooring! Haha. I usually skip the fashion stuff, too.

    Sounds like you have a fun month coming up! Um I definitely skip the beauty sections- you could easily tell from looking at me & my lack of style hahaa

    I hate the beauty sections of magazines and also skip those pages. My sister loves them, she says she learns new makeup techniques.

    Great prank!

    I rarely read the beauty section… sadly, my makeup routine and such has been pretty much the same for the last 5 years with a little variation here and there… I’m definitely not an artist! :p

    I always read the beauty section of magazines, but I can’t say that I actually use the tips & techniques.

    That was a good one! I’m totally with you on skipping the beauty parts, my hairstyle is pretty much ponytail only 😉

    I am entirely with you on the beauty section thing! Whenever I buy a magazine and later find out that there’s 20 pages devoted to new makeup products or something, I’m so disappointed! I just don’t care… there are so many other things in the world I’d rather spend my money on than expensive makeup! Maybelline will do!

    Yum Yum Yum! Love the overnight oats!

    I always skip the beauty parts, too, or at least just skim them. Unless you have a hair stylist, the chances of your hair coming out like the model’s are slim to none. And if you add in my thin hair, it’s definitely not happening!

    Great April Fools — My brother went into work early and put little post it notes over the eye on the bottom of everyone’s computer mouse so it won’t work when they come in. So funny!

    Wow that is a busy month! I bet you are super pumped for that 50k!

    Haha love your April Fools prank. 😉 And I ADORE that Stonyfield packaging! I can’t wait until the yogurt hits stores near me – it looks SO GOOD.

  28. Morgan @ Life After Bagels

    Wow so I totally believed you and didn’t even realize the date today . . . hahaha

    I can’t put that on my blog or my mom would freak too – the only thing is that there’s a strong chance that me and my bf would elope so double not as funny for me!

    I actually go STRAIGHT to the beauty section. Probably because I work in the business . . . the clothes – now THAT confused me. I have no fashion.

    It’s so awesome that you are running a 50k! I am running my first 5k in April and I hope that eventually I will be able to do a 50k! 2q

    Loved both the Starbucks and April Fools day pranks, too funny. I think you and Derek should get married in New Orleans for real 😉

    Cute post! I met my boyfriend of 5 years at an April Fool’s Day party in 2005 and people seriously do not believe that we have been dating this long…they all think it’s some kind of joke 😉

    A friend of mine has a dad who is a real jokester. Two of my favorites are when he removed all the door knobs in their house, and one when he removed all the toilet seats, lol.

    Ha! I got married with just my daughter, my husband son, and our parents – we didn’t want it any bigger than that.

    It’s almost 10 years later and my sister still gives me shit about her not being at my wedding!

    Happy April Fools! 😀

      My aunt (my mom’s twin sister) eloped without my Mom present and 20+ years and one divorce later (my aunt’s) my Mom still gives my aunt shit too. I think I would be bad if I my sister eloped without me too.

    I love making overnight oats in the yogurt container.

    I’m not big into April Fools jokes. I almost ran a race this morning but decided to sleep in.

    I had overnight oats yesterday for breakfast!

    I also skip the beauty section of magazines – it doesn’t interest me as much!

    I really don’t get the plenta cup for starbucks, that thing is huge! I feel like this is just adding to our portion distortion in today’s society. I mean 125 fl oz of coffee? Maybe it’s just me, but that seems too much for one person.

    My friend actually did tell me that Starbucks was going to have a new beverage size. I think like 38-30 oz or something like that? He told me last week, but not sure how true it is!

    I didn’t believe Caitlin’s for a second. Any other day and I might have fallen for yours! 😉 I ran a “Fools Rush in 5K” at lunch time today and I was worried they would say. “Just kidding, it’s a 10K…keep running.” 😆

    I skip those sections as well! And I can’t even look at Glamour or mags like that because I’m not fashion savvy either, haha.

    I’ve managed to avoid most of the April Fool’s stuff so far 😉

    Ah…I wished we had eloped! haha!! Oh well…4 years later I guess the wedding wasn’t so bad! 🙂

    Oh, and have you seen the new boston qualifying standards?

    I wept a little when I read them. 🙁

    I totally forgot about April Fools until I read everyone’s Twitter feeds this AM. Guess it’s not a big thing in NZ…?

    I totally fell for the April fools joke. I was thinking WHAT! Hahaha…

    I am glad I am not the only one who skips right over the beauty pages. I think they are so dull and I don’t understand at all. I also skip the clothes. I am not a girly-girl at all.
