I think I had a pretty productive day today. I cleaned my house, went out to lunch with K, did a bit of shopping, and went swimming. Now, here I am sitting at my computer, writing to all my great blog friends.
I love paid holidays, especially when they land on a Friday! It’s just like when I was in grade school and we had a day off. It’s instantly a great day.
I painted my nails purple and mint, which I think looks pretty cute, although I think the mint is highlighting my second toe, which is longer than the rest. I don’t want to draw attention to it!
I headed over to the mall when K was taking an afternoon nap and found a dress at Old Navy for $9! I had a pre-paid Visa I got in the mail as a promotional item, so I only paid $3 for the dress. It’s the black one on the right and it looks actually pretty great on me. I think it was made for my body. Then I went right across the way to H & M and found the other two dresses. They are having lots of sales right now. I actually didn’t know that before I went in there, but saw it as soon as I walked in. I found the navy dress in the middle for $7 and the black and white dress on the left for $4! I’m awesome. I got three dresses today for about $15. It definitely made my day. I don’t own any dresses and was determined to get one, now I have three awesome ones.
Swimming was fun and unexpected. I didn’t even think about it, but Won suggested it. I haven’t went swimming for over a year. K and I happened to be the only ones there and the sky was just gorgeous above us. It was so peaceful and relaxing. I laid out for a bit to “tan.” Turns out I just got more freckles. I took that picture so you could see just how freckly my face is without makeup.
After we have a light dinner, we’re going to our Turkish friend’s home for dinner, but we won’t eat until after 9 because they are observing Ramadan, so that’s why were’ eating a bit before.
Well that was Independence Day for me so far. Hope your day is going well, regardless if it’s a holiday or not.
