I took a ‘Me Day’ today. It was everything I hoped it would be. For the past two weeks, I have worked every single day on my book manuscript. When I finally hit a key milestone last night, I declared that I deserved – and needed – a day off.
It. Was. Awesome.
(Reading The Hunger Games – so good so far!)
In high school, my mom called Me Days “Mental Health Days,” and I was allowed to take one every nine weeks. I think everyone should take a Me Day every now and then! It’s sad that I have to schedule time to relax, but I do. I ran a few errands, bought a bridal shower present, went consignment shopping, and got a mani/pedi. It was seriously glorious. I could feel the stress just drain away from me.
I even went to my favorite store ever, West Elm.
And bought a wildebeest head for above our bed, just like my design inspirations, Young House Love. I’m slowly doing a bedroom makeover! I’m currently hunting for a pair of vintage pillar candle scones…
It took some convincing, but the Husband likes the beast. After all, wildebeest looks pretty sweet above the bed.
Kind of random, but I loved this look – the map behind the shelves. Perfect for an office!
And, of course, I ate lots of goodies on my Me Day.
Refried bean tacos and collard greens:
Mint buttercream brownie from Katie:
And for dinner, we went to Zoe’s Kitchen. It was pretty good! Lots of yummy veg options, which is always nice.
I got veggie kebobs, a salad, beans, and potato salad.
Sigh. SUCH an awesome day. I’m going to take one more half day off of writing, and then, it’s back to business!
