Ya’ll. It’s Thursday already. In 2 days I’ll be 26 years old. Gah!
Today I’m supposed to drive to le Outer Banks with my man-piece for a relaxing birthday weekend in Corolla. We are so lucky to be spending the weekend with Hurricane Andrea! Just so blessed to be in such good company. Le sigh. Suddenly I love using “le” in front of everything. Trendy much?
Anywho. Lately I’ve been trying to focus on having more fun and planning more tiny things to make the days brighter instead of hoping and waiting for a good day to just happen. I’m happy to report that it’s working and I highly recommend it. At the very beginning of the week, I made a checklist of things I wanted to do to have extra fun for my birthday. One of these things was to chill out on the interwebs. I have spent minimal time on le web this week (there it is again), minimal forum chatting, blog reading, and zero blog projects or website work. High. Five.
So this week’s [second] favorite is lazy weeks! The upcoming 26th anniversary of my birth has been causing me some unexpected anxiety to my efforts to really relax and enjoy things have really helped. I really have no idea why 26 seems so bad. Also hilarious that each time I type “26″ I’ve typoed it as “16.” Is that irony? Fairly certain I don’t wish to be 16 again. As great as high school was, I like where I am now. Just if things could slow down a tiny bit, that’d be great.
Also. You know it’s been a lazy week because this post has no photos. Bad blogger! But whatevs. It’s birthday week and the phrase of the week is “long hair, don’t care.” [That first link is NSFSM (Not Safe for Sensitive Moms cough mine).]
Other things on my list of fun for the week: get a massage (scheduled!), read for pleasure, do more journaling, long walk(s), spend time planning fun things for my biz, get my hair done (check!), go on a hike, run, dinner with friends, go out to lunch (a big deal for me these days), a Netflix marathon, cupcakes for dinner (gasp). I’ve done all of these things except the hike, which I plan to make a beach hike if Andrea isn’t a huge biotch and ruins the entire weekend.
My other favorite thing is chatting with you guys! What are your favorite things to do to celebrate yourself? Anyone out there hate birthdays? Just another day? Any quarter life crises out there? Is 26 a daunting year for you too? Or is it 30? 40? 50? 18?
OMG PS! Forgot to mention this detail:I didn’t just get my hair “done.” I dyed my hair. Violet. It is awesome and giving me huge extra doses of sass. Follow me on instagram to get a sneak peek…I’ve been posting an inappropriate number of selfies. Do forgive me.
