There is also retail therapy, which I received a healthy dose of yesterday. I procured big earrings to go with my new head scarf look, a few new winter hats, a pair of warm gloves, some cute decorative items, the very early stages of a Christmas present and a few Christmas decorations/wrappings.
I heard Christmas music piping into a store for the first time this season and had a beverage in my first Starbucks red cup of the season, so its safe to say that I am officially in the mood for Christmas. Now Ben just has to keep me from putting up the tree for another 3 weeks. Good luck to him.
I also had the opportunity to meet up with a few friends yesterday, Amy in the morning and Shannon in the afternoon. It was great to be able to just hang out with friends, have coffee and go shopping. I have noticed that I have less patience for stores right now -- guess I'll be doing a lot of online shopping this Christmas.
I ended the day going out to dinner with my parents to celebrate my dad's birthday. All in all, I'd say it was a pretty good day. Today, once I make it back up to Alexandria, my mission is to clean, clean, clean... we'll see how well I stick to that objective.
Thanks for all the comments and support for my new hairdos -- I have to say I'm really digging my cue ball head.
Now my weekend would be complete if someone could tell me why my brand new ipod nano won't charge with my old ipod car charger and/or docking station.
