A new year

Brandon: What do you want for you birthday, Megan?
Me: ummm, I don't know. The Shred workout by Jillian on the Biggest Loser.
Brandon: Hoooooww about.... a month of tanning at the salon down town? Because um.... you need one reeaaal bad.

Point taken. Thanks.

Tomorrow is my 22nd birthday. I decided to work instead of take the day off because really and truly I do not need another day to myself. Relational beings we so definitely are - and I am here to confirm that for ya! Today was a weather day so I slept in, got ready, and headed over to Longview to spend some birthday money.

I know you are probably tired of hearing about my bathroom redo and could careless to see any more pictures, but I had to show you my new vase. Mom got it for me at H*bby L*bby on sale for my birthday - woo hoo! It matches perfecto! She even spent her evening clipping all the flowers, placing them in just the right spot, and securing them into the foam. What a wonderful mom is she?

One of my favorite things, that I did pretty much all by myself within the past year, was tackle this bathroom. Do you remember what it looked like before? It's been months since the project has been finished, but I still find myself looking for these colors when i'm out shopping. It hasn't gotten old yet, and that makes me happy. I still wish I could paint the cabinets a dark chocolate. And the hideous faucets that stick out like a stinkin' sore thumb, yeah. It doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful, but that would make it complete!

When the time comes to have my own home...... oh how fun will that be? Decorating all the rooms - YAY! All the decisions are destined to drive me insane, but I'm still excited about it.

Hope you have a fantastic day tomorrow! I'll be SUB-paraprofessional-ing it up!
