You know, I work really hard. At a job that I hate. To pay the bills in a crappy apartment that I hate. Last year, I took a little road trip to reward myself for all my hard work. And this year, there are no road trips for me, so instead, I treated myself, and took myself on a date!
The first part of my date included sleeping in. Which was GLORIOUS. I’m still a little under the weather, so the extra few hours of sleep felt really good. I fell asleep watching CSI, which I haven’t watched in ages haha
As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve started trying to care about what I look like. Instead of waking up and going wherever I need to go, looking like I haven’t showered in a week. So, today was my first time wearing mascara and eyeliner. I bought this weird gel stuff? Instead of using an eyeliner pencil, it comes with a little brush, and has a little thing you dip the brush into. Kind of like water color maybe? It’s hard to describe. Aaaaaanyway, this is what I look like when I put effort into myself.
I honestly feel weird, but I did get a lot of compliments, so I guess I should continue to do it. I really want to learn to make my eyebrows look amazing. I don’t know why, but they terrify me the most. Just because when people do their eyebrows, they can look incredibly bad, and eyebrows are REALLY important to me.
So, after I got dressed, I treated myself to brunch at The Egg and I. I had previously been looking for an amazing brunch spot, and came across this place. The menu looked great, and the pictures from the Yelp reviews looked amazing. So, I went, and my server was SO nice, and there was a really cute table of old people playing domino’s. I just sat there, read my book, and ate my breakfast. I had a really hard time choosing what to get (their menu is full of super delicious food) but I settled on the Raisin French Toast with 2 eggs over medium and bacon. MMMM! It was SO good. OH! And the french toast had cinnamon butter. I just want to eat there EVERY DAY.
After breakfast, I headed over to Half Price Books, I haven’t been in a long time, since they closed the one in the town I live in. This location is roughly 30 minutes from where I live, but was only 7 minutes from The Egg and I, so I decided I would take advantage.
Obviously it was a really beautiful day. Not. But, after about an hour of walking around, I ended up grabbing some books for me and Calista. They didn’t have one of the books I was looking for, but I’ll try to find it online or something.
I got all these for $20! The only book I went in for, was the Jonathan Tropper book, the others were on clearance, and didn’t sound too bad. So, I figured why not. They were $1 a piece. Calista likes mystery books, so I got her the first of a series, hopefully she likes them.
Calista and I went on a walk, electronic free! We walked 2 miles, and while on the walk, we worked on synonyms and 5th grade spelling words! She got most of the spelling words right, minus a few that are pretty hard.
All in all, it was a great day! Hopefully this means that the rest of the weekend will be good!
Until next time,
