so I just got tagged by Beth (fun new blog discovery!), and I've never done one of these taggy things before, but what the hell. Describe my perfect day? Here goes.
-get ready in a leisurely fashion. this is really one of my favorite things to do.
-go shopping with Erin or Mindy, have lots of girl time where we urge each other to buy cute things we don't need. chat with salespeople. get something ultra-girly (makeup? shoes? earrings? a $200 coat I really don't need but the salesguy tells me I look fabulous in? oh wait. . . that last one already happened. thanks in part to mindy!). get pedicures somewhere fancy.
-at some point in the day: hear a new song I really like.
-wine tasting. Well okay, I think if this is my perfect day, I can break the laws of space and time, so I'm going to have to say, wine tasting at Cakebread in Yountville, CA. (hmmm. . . I don't think I ever really blogged very much about our honeymoon. . . When we were at the tasting at Cakebread, I SWEAR I reached a higher plane of existence. It was just that good. )
-dinner out with Mike and all my friendships.
-go see a fun show like Spoon or New Pornographers
-raging ensues!!! I think in the fantasyland of My Perfect Day, we all end up in Grinnell walking around in the quiet streets at 3 AM.
I should note, for some reason, my perfect day occurs in a month where it's not that warm out. early November? I picture most of these activities happening with scarves and mittens on.
So anyway. I'm leaving for Iowa tonight, staying at my parents, and then Ames the rest of the weekend. funtimes ahoy!
