A Fuzzy Green Hat.

I finally finished knitting my new green hat! I'm really excited about it. I love green and this fuzzy hat is the perfect addition to my eclectic wardrobe.

I knitted this hat with eyelash yarn that I originally bought to make a scarf, but after looking at it, it seemed like it would make a cute hat. I think I was right about that. 

I love this hat!!

Hair Cut and Macchiato.....Yep, It's Friday.

Yesterday, I went to the nail salon and enjoyed being pampered. Today, I went to the hair salon and got pampered there as well. I got a shampoo, haircut and a blowdry and I feel beautiful!

I bought some hair products and left the salon feeling so good!! Not as good as when I left the nail salon yesterday, but pretty close.
I then decided to go to Starbucks and get myself a Venti Caramel Macchiato. Yes, I know it's like a 400 calorie coffee, but I felt like having one so I am. I also got a blueberry muffin.

All in all, a pretty good Friday!

Green Toe Nails and a Black Hat.

Today is Thursday and though it is normally uneventful, today was filled with lots of fun stuff. It started with me completing the hat for my oldest that I began yesterday. Simple and black, it was the first hat I ever knitted and it turned out so well that I can't help but pat myself on the back.

Then I realized that I had to pick up a few things at the grocery store, so I decided to head out in the rainy weather and get the needed items. My trip began at the local Hobby Lobby where I bought some more yarn to knit more hats and scarves. I should have then proceeded to the grocery store but, I took a detour to the local mall and went to the nail salon I once frequented every other week, but thanks to all the responsibilities that the last several months have brought, my nails have been neglected. I started with a spa pedicure and, of course, opted for the the leg and foot massage. I cannot in mere words describe the ecstasy that I experienced as the beautiful Asian man's hands worked my feet and calf muscles for five straight minutes. I needed it. And I loved every second. Then he painted my toes nails glittery green (of course green, I love GREEN!) and asked if I wanted a manicure as well. I said, "Yes! I am having too much fun to leave now." So he massaged my hands and nails, painted them clear, and had me sit under the dryer. After I was reasonably dry, I paid him, thanked him and left.

Finally, I went to the grocery store and picked up a few items before arriving home where I find myself now. It was a fabulous morning/early afternoon. Nearly Perfect.
