I took myself on a date last week. It started off with a scrumptious dinner at Moe's ( I had two steak tacos and some yummy chips and queso!). It was a bit awkward to sit at a booth by myself with happy families and couples all around me, but I honestly think it's a great thing for everyone to do. Being alone doesn't always have to be a bad thing.
I headed to Borders after dinner and browsed the interior design books before grabbing a caramel macchiato and settling into an armchair with the second book in the "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" series. I love digging into a good book to test drive it before purchasing. (er, and sometimes I just *happen* to read the whole thing in the store....)
Have you ever dated yourself?
I looove rain storms. And this week we've had a lot of great ones, including thunder and lightning, which we very rarely get here! I was in heaven with my windows open listening to the pouring rain and booming thunder on Friday.
Pretty colors on my palette. Ohhh yeah.
I went out to run some errands with a friend the other day and we stopped for some smoothies at a new cafe. I loved the combo of the blue wall, my colorful outfit and purple smoothie. Oh, and my smoothie was delicious, just in case you were wondering.
*EDIT* Yes, my hair is grungy. Let's focus on the delicious smoothie, shall we?
Oh, and another b-i-g happy thing! I booked our hotel last night for my trip to see Chris and it is gooorgeous! And I've been researching some fun things to see and do, including cooking classes, zipline tours and floating markets! Pretty much squealing with excitement every time I think about my trip. Can't wait to smooch that boy!
I'd be remiss to not mention the latest news last night about the death of Osama Bin Laden. Let's continue to pray for the troops as they face increased risk and danger, and remember those that have died as a result of and since the attacks on September 11.
