I went to work and was so productive that I impressed myself and got all my work done in three hours. Yes, three hours (here's to hoping I didn't forget something). So I decided that I should take a half day off and left shortly after noon. I really think there's nothing better than suddenly being rewarded with free time. I remember days when class was cancelled in college and you would have thought that free 50 minutes was like willing a million dollars at the lottery. It's like when you think you gave your time away to something and then suddenly you get it back. For free. It's like, really awesome.
So, I left work early and ran a few errands. I got my bangs trimmed and bought some random things I needed. Anyone used Epionce face wash? LOVE IT. I got that and some other things and then I jaunted over to the local mall to try to complete my list of items to purchase with my tax refund. And I scored. I got a pair of black flats and a pair of brown flats from Payless that were much needed (thanks to dogs that liked to chew up my shoes). But the best part, I got these:
My very first pair of Tom's. Now, here's something I learned today: you can buy the youth sizes and save money. For instance, I would normally wear a 7.5 in ladies, so I would be a 5.5 in youth sizes. How much for these in youth size? $38. That's right, folks. Wheelin' and dealin'. Youth sizes go up to a 7, which would be 9 in women's. You should think about it.
I also did some homework... actually, I should be doing that now. Oh, how I love to procrastinate.
Finally, we topped off the evening with a lovely dinner at a local cafe with live music from one of my favorite bands. We spent time with good friends and even had FroYo for dessert.
And you know what the best part is? I don't have to work tomorrow. It's like I got all my errands done today so tomorrow I can... well.... do homework all day. Ha. Oh well. Can't win 'em all.
And the other thing that made my day super awesome is that my new pink lululemon jacket finally arrived in the mail. I love it. See photo: (-:
It's the small things, people. Anything make your life awesome lately?
