The weekend has come and gone. Time seems to move faster than I do during these two precious, precious, precious days off of work. The work week last week was extremely, painfully, super duper grossly long and we still have Monday of insanity before we finally go into the meeting we've been preparing for - on Tuesday. I think we'll be bringing in pillows, blankets, and coffee to make it through the day and night tomorrow. We're showing our CEO a preview of our Summer Pattern for 2009. I'm using my powers of "Magical Thinking" aka "The Law of Attraction" to say that the meeting is going to go really WELL! :D
It's interesting to Google search the "Law of Attraction" to see what people think and feel about it. There's many people that really believe in the theories and many who are so against it and call it "B.S.". Personally, I believe that any THEORY is simply a way of thinking and no way of thinking can be considered true or false. If a way of thinking allows people to live their lives in a positive and successful manner - THEN WHY BASH IT? Same exact thing with any religion! I wouldn't take the Bible literally (some do, and that's fine too), but it's theory and I won't bash it either. But anywho... the Law of Attraction purely states that your thoughts become things. And it works. It's not really magic, it's just a way of thinking that makes sense. Thinking negatively breeds more negativity - and thinking positively attracts more positivity into your life because it is what you're focusing on. That's not BS, it's just common sense.
I also used this great and powwwerrful law to create a great weekend that Peter and I like to call a "Because We Deserve It" weekend. It's filled with things that we feel like doing because we deserve it!!
We went to see "The Dark Night". That was an INTENSE movie. My hands were over my eyes or mouth the entire time and I was literally SORE from being so tense! Really! My muscles hurt afterward! Then we got some pizza and had a good nights sleep.
Saturday, Evan and I went to a bunch of ring stores to try to find the place to get my ring custom made.
We are pretty sure we found our guy and he's drawing up some sketches for us to see next week! That's the ONLY place that offered this for us! I'm excited now.
Then it was time to continue on with the Because We Deserve It extravaganza. Evan and I drove downtown to Peter's apartment and then we all went over to Black Market to check it out. Black Market is a boutique owned by Kelli on this current season (five) of Project Runway! The store was awesome and I'm definitely betting on her being in the top 3 to go to Bryant Park this year. Represent Columbus, Kelli!!
After Black Market, we hit up Starbucks because we deserve it. What came next was bad and torturous... we went into Urban Outfitters. My wallet was screaming and shouting at me and begging me not to harm it. I felt pity on the poor sad thing and only left the store with three items! And none of them clothes. Wallet thanked me for now but knows that I'll return and we'll have to go through that whole scene all over again. Here's what wallet let me get:
A new coffee table book for Evan and I and our friends to release our piles of creativity onto at any random moment:
Two suuuper cute and fun journal/notebook thingies. I'm obsessed with journals and can't pass up really cute ones.... especially during a 2 for $10 deal!
Then back to Peter's for a spaghetti dinner with Juno! What a great movie and what a great dinner - thanks Peter!!! We deserved it! We also deserved to let loose a little. So not before long we were heading out to have our "Because We Deserve It" Long Islands! Two bars, only two long islands, and many songs belted out randomly in mid conversation later - we wake up to the sun shining bright and our heads told us "owww... yeah... you sure deserved it.." So since our heads hurt and our bodies were dehydrated and tired, we headed around the block to THE ABSOLUTE BEST place to get breakfast in Columbus. Wait, I take that back, best place to get breakfast ANYWHERE, EVER. That would be... First Watch! Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh we so deserved that!!
The rest of my Sunday was spent laying, coloring in the book, watching episodes from the 4th (and sadly final!) season of 4400, and reading my book for the book club. Mentally preparing myself for the week ahead. And I may have a glass of wine... because I deserve it.
