Random thoughts from a day off...

Yep, that's right.  I took my last of two personal days yesterday.  I strategically attempted to schedule my day off to help ease the stress of the long haul until our very belated Spring Break this year (not for another week!).  Anywho, I enjoyed a slow morning of coffee and blogs (my fave), and spent the day with the Momster.  What did we get into?  Only our credit cards will tell.  Kidding, kidding.  Somebody tell Andy I was only joking--STAT.

Here are some things that are were randomly on my mind yesterday as I had the time to chill...

I enjoyed seeing this list of 30 things to do before you turn 30 on a new blog I've been reading.  For those that may not know, Andy is turning the big 3-0 this October--what a milestone, right?  Being three years younger, I am anxiously watching his every mood to see how he handles the big year/day.  I ask him occasionally, "Are you nervous?"  "Can you believe you are going to be 30?"  "Are you where you thought you'd be at this point?"  I think I worry about the milestone much more than he does--maybe it's a girl thing.  But when I saw this girl's post today, I immediately thought it was such a fun way to ring in this birthday.  Why not try 30 new things before the big day?  A great idea...

In other news, Andy and I saw this flick with some friends last night.  I read the trilogy a while back, and I finally convinced he-who-always-needs-convincing (Andy) to read it recently.  It's the first movie based on a book that we have seen that we both read.  We LOVED it and felt like it totally did the book justice.  A must-see, for sure.

Um, I finally broke down and bought an Instyler.  A friend recently was rocking an awesome looking do (which she had done with an Instyler), and of course there are the infomercials that get me too that I seem to always catch on Saturday mornings.  But I was unwilling to spend 120 bucks on one!  I don't care about my hair that much, friends--after all, I only get haircuts when I can find a decent Groupon.  However, the other day on Groupon Goods, I found this Instyler for 59 bucks and decided it was time to see what my locks have been missing all this time.  We shall see!

And last but not least, Mom and I had a bit of luck at the flea market yesterday.  I'll be sure to show our finds soon.  We also managed to hang the old, but new-to-me bird prints.
More to come!
