day WEEK of the year!!!
I turned 53 yesterday, woohoo! I am not one of those people who bemoans getting older - call me weird, but I like aging up. I mean, it's better than the alternative, right? Since I was going to be working yesterday, I started my "treat yo self" celebration early. I got my hair highlighted and cut:
Extra blonde for the summer...
I stopped in at Starbucks for my favorite drink - an iced latte - and brought it with me while I got a much-needed pedicure. I went wild and chose a color other than my standard blue:
OPI's Cajun Shrimp - a bright coral.
It's very different for me but I like it!
Yesterday, after I ran, I opened my present from Jeff - I knew it was something from James Avery, seeing as I'd gone there with him and tried on several different pieces of jewelry, but I didn't know what he ended up choosing...turns out, it was a blue topaz ring! I love it, and not just because it goes so nicely with my car:
Doesn't everyone coordinate their jewelry with their vehicles?
Caramel waffle cone frappuccino - delicious, ridiculously high in calories, but a worthwhile splurge once a year.
We went out to dinner - I wasn't super hungry, but chips and queso, along with a taco from Torchy's sounded great:
There's guacamole under all that queso - YUM.
Really, I ordered it because the ingredients sounded good, but I laughed at my preference - this one is called The Democrat.
Then we went to Cafe Eccell for dessert:
Strawberry tart - split with Jeff, but I swear, I have it in me to eat the entire thing.
Tomorrow I'll run 5.3 miles...I have to say, clearly I did not think this through when I started running my age. I may start running my age in minutes vs. miles soon - it's so dang hot in June to be doing this! And afterward, treats will be had at Blue Baker; according to their monthly schedule, blondie toffee brownies will be on tap - yes, please!
Have a great weekend!
