Happy! [Jan. 3rd, 2009|09:52 am]

[Current Mood |giddygiddy]

I am feeling SO MUCH better. In fact, better enough that I could make a TMI post to make you all blush, but I'll refrain and just say that Craig is majorly taking care of business and we both are loving it! I finally feel pretty, and that's partly because I've put on a few pounds and am back up to my goal weight, so rather than worn out and sick with really dark eye circles, I look healthy, happy, and more feminine and soft, and as a result I feel more confident.

After the MRI yesterday I went to have dinner with Amy. We went to Sephora AND Lush which was amazing, then out to Karaoke where we sang a duet of "I Feel Free" by Cream which has special meaning to us. She even bought me a lemondrop, my favorite drink! I'm spoiled. Carla sang "Sweet Transvestite" which was a riot! Amy did "Crazy on You" by Heart and I also did "Mickey" by Toni Basil to get people clapping with audience partici---pation.

What else? Oh, because I had a few returns AND a gift card, I got awesome stuff at Sephora and only spend 62 cents of my own money. I can't splurge because money is tight (very), but I have amazing new GLOSS!! Yay!

I also bought soaps at the buy 1 get 2 free Lush soap sale and a massage bar which I used on Craigy last night to both of our delight. The new massage bar scents with nuts and honey are SO yummy. Highly recommended.

In other very very happy news, they finally DUMPED our trash today! The neighborhood no longer smells terrible.

I hope the rest of you kicked off the weekend in such a fun style and are feeling happy. I have a girl date with my Mom and Sister to go see the Curious Case of Benjamin Button and eat lunch tomorrow. All I need now is a little time with Craig and my weekend will be complete.

I want you to know, just for the record, that I left that comment about your icon before reading this, so it was a completely spontaneous comment. It wasn't at all an oh-I-should-say-something-to-help type thing! Not that those aren't sincere when I do them... I think sometimes we all forget to say the nice things we think about one another. And making someone else feel good makes me feel good. Anyway, there you have it. You are a lovely woman, and I do think that particular set of photos shows you in an excellent light!

Aww! Thank you. You always strike me as very sincere, so I wouldn't doubt your word. :)

Thanks. It's so wonderful to finally be in a bit less pain.

Last year is the least I've ever karaoked since I was 18 years old. Sadly all due to health reasons, but I'm back in the saddle now!

your resolution for this year should contain this phrase:

1. Must karaoke more at all costs :)

As a former choir nerd in high school I cant stop myself...i'm a karaoke whore :)
