The first thing on my list of things to do on "bonus-day-off-day" was to sleep in. It was so important to me that before I went to sleep last night I told Aaron that I wanted to sleep in. Here's how that went down:
Whitney: Okay, I want to sleep in tomorrow morning, got it?
Whitney: Tell me what I want to do
Aaron: Go for a bike ride
Whitney: No, sleep in. I want to sleep in. Repeat to me what I want to do...
Aaron: Go for a walk
You get the gist. Well, guess who didn't sleep in? Me. However it wasn't my beloved's fault. It was mine. Apparently my body had something else planned. So not only did I get to bed super late but I had to get up early, so naturally, I did. Oh well.
I'll spare you the mundane details of us getting ready to go, but that's what we did. Ready to go where you ask? Well, we had a list of places to go and things to do. In the past and usually on Saturdays, Aaron and I have been known to spend the day driving around to wherever our hearts desire, be it a coffee shop, bike shop, Goodwill, antique store, etc. One of us will call out an idea and we drive there. So that's what we did today. I LOVE it!
First we ran to Starbucks to grab some coffee for the girls who did get to work today (kind of a condolence prize if you will.) I was able to score two free drinks just 'cause the lady liked my honest face (not really- but the free drinks are true...). We dropped them off then zoomed to Diamond Home Improvement to pick out some paint swatches. I've been reading A LOT of home improvement blogs and have stumbled on a shade that I am obsessed with. This one is from younghouselove.com:
We then ran to Fred Meyer's to look at magazines and lamps to further fuel my decoration fire!! I wholeheartedly feel that this teal color will be a refreshing change from the existing red wall. One day I woke up and realized I was super tired of the red. This color was the answer to my......uh....tired-ness?
So, that's all we've done so far. I had such a good day I had to share it with someone! Thanks for stopping by! And stay classy....but mostly thanks for stopping by.
