treat yo self

Hey Swagsters! Happy Thursday!

I’ve been in a total daze all day today, but I wanted to make sure I shared with you how my self-care day turned out yesterday.

I had a pedicure scheduled at 12:30. When I arrived and checked in on Foursquare (like the good social media addict that I am), I was pleased to see this:

Treat Yo Self!

It was almost like Foursquare was out to encourage me to take care of myself! Ha! Sometimes it’s the little things that can make a girl’s day.

So the gift card I was given was for Noella Spa & Nails. They have salons in Avon and Farmington, CT. My appointment was at the Farmington, CT location and man, was it snazzy!

so relaxing.

Look how nice this place was! It was so peaceful inside. It was very tranquil and they were playing opera music softly over the speaker system. I was swooning. The pedicurists and manicurists were all very nice and did excellent work!


When I was sitting under the fan, letting my toes dry, someone even came around and offered me a massage! I was so surprised by the luxury that I actually TURNED HIM DOWN.

What is wrong with me?!

If I wouldn’t have simultaneously embarrassed myself and ruined my nail polish, I would have chased him down to say I’d decided to accept his offer. But alas, the moment was gone and so was my massage. #jennyfail

happy feet!

My little feetsies were so happy! Massage or no massage, I was definitely feeling relaxed and refreshed.

And hungry.

When I got home I needed something quick and delicious, and then this happened:

portobello pizza with diaya mozz

I made a mini pizza with a portobello mushroom cap and had some roasted brussels on the side. So yummy!

Yesterday evening I met up with Cait to go to the Glastonbury Riverfront Concert Series. We met at Whole Foods, where Cait grabbed a delicious salad bar dinner (I had packed a salad and brought it with me), and then we set off to meet Cait’s mom, lounge on the lawn with glasses of wine and listen to a pretty awesome Beatles cover band. Unfortunately, I didn’t take any pictures because I was STARVING and could only think of digging into my salad. But Cait has some, and I’m sure she’ll have those up on her site before long. 🙂

It was a very relaxing night, and I couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend the day!

July just keeps getting better and better. When I woke up today I realized this:

My best friend Holly, who I met in college and haven’t seen in something like 3 or 4 years, will be coming to town on July 21st, and July 21st is now in the 10-day forecast, which means omgitsgettingsocloseicannotwaitforhertogethere. The 10-day makes everything official.

And then for lunch I ate this:

I’m addicted to Daiya.

Vegan grilled cheese with avocado and 1/4 block of thinly sliced tempeh. To. Die. For. I’m not super big into sandwiches but today there was nothing that I wanted more and darnit if this wasn’t beyond satisfying!

Well Swagsters, I’m off for the night. Markus has given me homework while he is at work: Watch Weeds, season 7 so we can watch the final season together. I’ve seen every season of Weeds except number 7. I watched the first episode and have to admit that I thought it had officially turned to crap. But I’ve come this far, and I am interested in watching the final season, so I might as well get myself caught up.

Have a great night and see you tomorrow!
