Sometimes you just need a little "me" time.

I worked Wednesday through Monday and by yesterday I was ready for a break.  This weekend was college move in weekend which meant that we were prepared to be busy.  This was a darn good thing because all summer it felt like I was really struggling to make money.  It felt good to go home with lots of money each day!

This week I have lots to do before I leave for Milwaukee on Thursday.  I want to get all my school word done before I leave because... well, who wants to do homework when you're supposed to be having a fun weekend away?  So that will be tomorrow's plan.  I also need to get a haircut tomorrow, run to the bank AND the library.  Then I work a mid on Wednesday, 8:30 to 3 on Thursday and I leave for Milwaukee right after that.  It's going to be nuts and I think this girl may be a bit cranky after that drive Thursday!

Needless to say when I got home yesterday all I wanted was a little time to myself.  So what did I do?  I painted my toenails (a fun mauve-y color called Haze of Love), dyed my hair (nice and dark with NO grays), at some ice cream and formed a new obsession: L.A. Ink.  How have I not watched that show yet?  It's totally bringing my tattoo obsession to a whole new level!

Anyway, that's what's up with me right now!  Things are a little nuts but really fun too. 

Stay tuned for more sponsors this week!  Cannot wait to see who wins my birthday giveaway!

The trip sounds like fun and no one wants to do homework on a fun weekend! Here's to getting your work done and done:-)

Yay for taking some me time. I RARELY do that - when I have a couple of hours spare at home I usually find myself catching up on chores instead of taking some time to relax!

Phew-sounds like quite a weekend, and an even bigger week! Enjoy every second of the craziness!


Oh gosh, that made me tired :) Love "me" days - sometimes they are SO necessary. I've never watched L.A. Ink before, but my friend was just on it recently so that's kind of fun!

I'm super super excited you're coming to Milwaukee and I'm glad you got some me time. I wish you could meet my hubby this weekend. He has so many tattoos, so I get my fix from him.

Have a wonderful trip and safe travels. Glad to hear you are taking advantage of some time to yourself--you deserve it, girl! *HUGS*


i love me time. it is always needed. i have been trying to have me time at least once a week, it's a new goal of mine. yummy food, wine/beer (depending on my mood) and whatever show i'm in the mood for. all curled up in bed and enjoying spending time with just myself. wonderful.

i hope you have a great trip!

ps i love la ink. new york ink is pretty bad ass too.


Why does it always seem like when we have stuff to do we have TONS of stuff to do.

My go to stress reliever is Caramel/Vanilla Duo from Breyers...yummy!

Wish you luck and a safe trip.

I hear ya lady...I leave town again tomorrow and I'm a wee bit overwhelmed. Good for you for carving out some me time!


"Me" times are totally a must. :]
Have fun in Milwaukee and take pictures.

Sounds like you had a relaxing time pampering. That's good. I currently have ombré hair, mainly red. I've been contemplating whether I should dye it dark like yours. Maybe I will!
