2 weeks left

I have exactly 2 weeks left to enjoy being 36. I'm not sure what I want to do. Scratch that. I know exactly what I want to do. I want to take a portion of each day and do something just for myself. Get a pedicure, a facial, have a nice lunch out with a friend, maybe some fun shopping trips, a visit to the arboretum or a local museum, see a movie in the middle of the day, or load up my playlist with new music, or buy some fun new art supplies.

It sounds indulgent, doesn't it? I have to admit I'm NOT one of those sacrificing women that won't pamper themselves. I'm not ashamed of it either. I'd rather be nice to myself than sit around wishing someone else would. There's a saying my granny has about wishing in one hand and......you know what? I'll skip that one.

I found this pretty little gem on Tumblr and saved it. I have it as my phone wallpaper. It fits my attitude perfectly.
Not that I need reminding. I discovered as a young girl that my name means princess and I took it to heart. Not in the negative I'm-better-than-you sort of way, just in the I-expect-to-be-treated-right sort of way. Even if I'm the one doing the treating. ;)

And just as a reminder for anyone who'd like to send me a personal birthday wish and is really bad with math - it's on the 18th. *wink wink*
