Sweetest Day Done Solo...

I guess you could call Sweetest day a made up holiday, that originated in my home state of Ohio. But who cares? It's real to Hallmark, so it's real to me!!

And after two years of single, I decided to take it very seriously.

Instead of focusing on my lack of a sweetie..and how all my friends are coupled up, I decided to be my own sweetie, and it turns out, I am the best sweetie I have ever had!!

I did fabulous things!

The day started early, with a nice run outdoors. I enjoyed the cool weather, the beautiful leaves, and time alone with my thoughts, all while working up a sweat!

I took Mr. Magoo to the Howl-o-Ween party at our dog park. He sniffed butts, and got his nails trimmed.

I bought myself flowers! I love flowers!

I bought myself a new entertainment center, the kind you get from a bonefide furniture store! (this will house my soon to be newly acquired 40" flat screen TV....eeek, technology!)

Thanks to my fuel perks, I got a full tank of gas for $31!

I got my second ever set of egyptian cotton sheets! And I bought all new pillows!

But the hilight of my day was that I had my very first ever, in 36 years, professional massage.....HEAVEN!!! As I lay in utter relaxation, I channeled my Dad and thought..."I wonder what the poor people are doing?" I see many more spa days in my future! Being pampered was pretty amazing!

I wound down the day by loungin around my clean house, and smelling  my favorite fall candle, pumpkin cheesecake. I ordered in chinese, because it is a definite no-no, and today was all about yes-yes!!

The rest of the evening will be spent cuddling under my favorite fuzzy blanket, sipping on champagne, and watching my favorite scarey movies!

These two brothers are invited to the snuggle party.
Being single is really pretty fabulous when you do all the things you most enjoy, and don't dwell on what you don't have!

These three kitty amigos say Happy Sweetest Day!

How lovely. Sunds like the sweetest day ever!

I just went back home for a family gathering and my cousin (in her 20's) told me about the reaction she had when she said she was buying a house. Everyone wanted to know who she would be living with & then were very sad for her when they found out she would be living alone.

Despite the woman had bought her own house and wanted to live alone, they pitied her! Unbelievable. I have another friend who lives in Oman, she is a UK diplomat for the Foreign Office, she speaks 7 languages, and she earns a ton of money - yet her family regard her as a failure because she isn't married therefore must be miserable.

You keep on trucking my friend. You're doing way better than fine!
