happy long weekend.

from captivate me via oh, hello friend.

this is what i would like my weekend to look like. it won't, but i'm going to carry the feeling of this image into my weekend... everyday magic, sunshine, bare feet, sweet cotton dresses. i'll eat more at breakfast than these 3 wispy girls combined, but let's focus on the positive, shall we? i'll bet their armpits smell like Sweet Tarts.

and... SCENE.

but The Cute did make me this coffee this morning.

just what a girl needs on the first day of Aunt Flo's visit when she's certainly feeling so not very H-O-T.

today, i'm going to drink lots of water, feed myself healthy, warm, comfort food, take a quick walk out of the office in the sunshine, and maybe buy myself a curling iron. (yeah, that last one's a little weird, but i've been wanting one for a while. to many childhood productions of The Nutcracker, i guess. i miss ringlets.)

what sort of things do you do to take care of yourself when Aunt Flo visits? how could you better care for yourself during those times?

how about a no-diet LIFE?

reason #17 not to diet: BAKED GOODS!

not sure how i missed this (oh, wait, yes i do, i was organizing a bake sale!), but may 6 was International NO-DIET DAY. i say we celebrate this all year long!

not that i need any other reasons - dieting makes me a miserable, hungry, self-centered bitch, and i think that's reason enough - but here are 16 reasons not to diet.
