19 Jun

Today was all about beauty. I stayed up until 2A last night (which is late for me, even on a weekend!) thanks to the coffee and woke up around 9A. I was seriously dragging. Dragging so much that I poured coffee grinds into the water filter area of my coffee pot and water into the grinds filter, oi. Oddly enough, the coffee was drinkable but not strong whatsoever. I made a quick breakfast of scrambled eggs, shrooms, red onions and a diced sweet potato so my belly would be full for a little.

I went to a local spa to redeem a $50 gift certificate that I bought for $25 off of Groupon. I got the Deluxe Pedicure which was hands down the best pedicure I’ve ever had. Even better than this one that I also got off of Groupon. It was nice because there was only two pedicure chairs so it was very detail oriented. I got a paraffin wax, peppermint sugar scrub and some kind of menthol peppermint lotion of my feet. I got my piggies done in a beautiful “Last Tango”

No Yuengling for me today since I had a hair appointment shortly after and it is with a new stylist for me and didn’t really want to be sauced for it. I’ve been going to my stylist for the last two years and she recently moved to a new location which is about 30 minutes further from the 30 minutes she was already from me. I am really not too keen on making a two-hour trip to get my hair did (I’m a diva what can I say?) and thought I would try someone new. I was out walking Lincoln a few weeks ago and I started chatting with a girl while she was walking her dog and got her info. Turns out she is 10 minutes from my apartment with the same rates as my stylist so I decided to give her a shot.

I was early so I stopped at Dunkin Donuts for a large iced coconut coffee with half and half and snacked on a kiwi and banana on the way to my appointment. I hate having appointments in the mid afternoon since I don’t have time to pick up lunch.

 Check out the area where I got to lounge when my color was setting! An Ottoman, magazines and cable!!?? Bring it.

Naturally, I turned on Bravo in hopes of catching up on some Real Housewives and I lucked out with the Real Housewives of NY Reunion—hello drama!

I touched up my blonde highlights and chopped my hair off! I’ve been trying to grow it out but it is just blah when it gets long b/c it’s so thick and full so I thought a cute, shorter look for the summer would be fun.

I’m diggin it so far but I keep running my fingers through my hair wondering where all my hair is! I got back home to have a late lunch-some beautiful sushi that I got at Reid’s yesterday—Sushicado and LBJ Roll

Speaking of LBJ, Lincoln bears an uncanny resemblance to his dog, Yuki. Lincoln is presidential!!! Get it—-Lincoln—-Presidential? I crack myself up.

I took a nap after that and woke up and popped open my Greek Salad with Grilled Chicken that I got at Reid’s and topped with T Marzetti’s Lite Ancho Chipotle Ranch

Such a beautiful, messy salad! I finally got around to watching Valentine’s Day

So, I know it got really bad reviews but I absolutely loved this move! Especially Jennifer Garner’s role, I think the part with the pinata was effin awesome along with the waitressing bit! Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned….

I got some bad news this afternoon though. My friend from Phoenix texted me to let me know her dog passed away this week. I believe he was 10 or 11 yrs old and she had had him since he was a pup so it was very bad news. I used to go to her place and pay more attention to her dog than to her and would since Lionel Richie’s “Once, Twice, Three Times a Lady” to him but insert his name in there.  I cannot even imagine the pain she is going through and don’t want to think about how I will be when Lincoln’s time will come.

So for now, I enjoy every minute I have with my beautiful pup, even if he does sometimes resemble Nick Nolte’s infamous mug shot with his crazy hair

Hope everyone had as beautiful day as I did!

    I like the cut! Great for summer…

    And I had mixed feelings about Valentine’s Day. I thought it was cute. But the same guy did Love Actually, which I loved ten times more… so it did have a lot to live up to in my mind…

    Love the toes, love the hair, love it! I also really liked Valentine’s Day. Not the best ro-com ever, but I thought it was entertaining and fun. Taylor Swift was SO annoying in it though.

      I left out that part about her on purpose…I could not stand her! And the fact we have the same birthday doesn’t help either.

    Sorry to hear about your friend’s dog.

    But your hair looks FANTASTIC!
    And I’m dying to see Valentine’s Day! Glad it got your stamp of approval.
