Friday Five....Smile!!!

So I had the day from HELLLLLLLLLL yesterday but for some reason I woke up with a smile on my face today, and I attribute that to:

1). Waking up and seeing snow on the ground always makes me giddy. I guess you can take the boy out of Maine but you can't take the Maine out of the boy. PS my first bf in college first kissed me during the first snowfall freshman year, most. romantic. thing. ever.

2). Drive into work, I hate 495, I hate 270, but I heart my drive into and coming home from work. I love driving past monuments, capitol building, and seeing the DC skyline for a good part of my trip. Makes me happy to live in DC.

3). Last night I cooked more food than one man should ever cook, I'm hosting dinner for 20+ at le palais de dale which has also been named the G-Spot (get your minds out of the gutter it has NOTHING to do with that), 2 main courses, 4 side dishes, and 3 deserts later annnnnnnnnnd I'm spent. Cooking for others always makes me happy.

4). Getting the rando "knew your day was crappy hope your evening is going well" calls/IM's from friends last night as I was doing it Julia Child style, it's like an electronic hug really.

5). After having el dio de crap, going to the spa and having my hair done, my body massaged, my face facialed, and my eyebrows tended to.... yes that's right I participate in eyebrow hair maintenance. nothing is as cathartic as having hair forcibly ripped from your face.... no joke.


Have a nice weekend everybody!!

Your idea of relaxation is identical to mine. Excellent.

Ain't it grand to wake up and feel like a kid! I do that often and some people just can't handle chipper people in the morning. I hope you always have that joy of greeting the day!

RC: oh definitely, followed up by a Stoli + Tonic ?? yes m'aam. However the waxing must be done AFTER everything else otherwise you're sitting in a chair in the salon looking like somebody beat your face with a sack of tangerines.

JP: yeah it definitely makes me all excited!!! Unfortunately as much as I try to avoid it... I'm a morning person. *shudder*

"nothing is as cathartic as having hair forcibly ripped from your face," Great line! Hmmmm, wonder where you got that one? ;-)

Glad your dia es mas buena hoy (whoa, I had to dig in the vaults for that crappy high school psuedo spanglish line!)

Kissing in the snow is wonderful. As for the eyebrows, just don't let them get too ambitious and have you wind up over arched like Billy Zane in Titanic.

I got my eyebrows threaded today. I'm obsessed. You should try.

See you this weekend I hope Tiffany's Twin!

Speaking of eyebrows..I think I may be a bit past due for pruning. Well, I am glad you are having a fantastic day and I hope the feeling lasts all weekend long!
