Monday Motivation: Wasting Time

all in good time.

This weekend I had all sorts of things I could’ve and should’ve been doing. Taxes, laundry, errands, editing, guest posts, grocery shopping . . . Instead, I did all sorts of things I actually felt like doing: drinking wine, going to brunch with the girls, getting a mani, meeting a friend’s newborn, buying accent tables (brass + lucite, my god!), eating Thai takeout while watching Scandal, walking the dog, reading the Times, drinking too much coffee, eating too many tacos, testing 37 new spring lipstick shades . . . While these activities didn’t score me any points with my accountant or my laundry room, they did leave me feeling more like myself and reminded me that life is freaking awesome.
