Bite Size Happiness

Yesterday when I got home from work I was greeted by an package at my doorstep.  I knew it would be there since I'd been following the tracking, but I still love the little jolt of pleasure of seeing a package at my door.  :-)  It was two books I'd ordered the other day, one as a gift and one for myself.  Every now and again I get the urge to buy a real book.  I love my Kindle Fire, but sometimes I like to go old school.   Anyway, a day where you get two books delivered is a good day in my book of life!

I got a good workout last night at the gym, but was pretty sore from my training session the night before.  I came home and took a relaxing bath with epsom salts and it felt very decadent and lovely.  Afterwards I sprawled out on the couch with my electric throw blanket, and I was quickly joined by my two cats, who love me, but adore the blanket.  ;-)  We watched Survivor on DVR, as well as some other randomness. 

Today I'm at work trying to be productive, but feeling distracted.  I feel like I'm on the verge of my holidays starting.  Holiday party tonight, A Christmas Carol on Sunday, gift shopping this weekend (mostly online!), maybe doing Christmas cards (maybe!), and I definitely need to get started on my Christmas movie watching.  A Christmas Story, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, Home Alone, and I still have A Charlie Brown Christmas waiting for me on my DVR.  I also hope to catch Scrooged on TV at some point! 

I leave in about 2 hours for my hair appointment, so shortly after that I will have smooth, shiny hair (with a deep conditioning treatment thrown in as a promotion!).  My dress is hanging on the back of my door, my heels are beneath my desk, my earrings are in a desk drawer.  My party purse and other accessories are in my bag, just waiting patiently for the end of the work day.  Hopefully today I also get my letter telling me my raise and bonus amounts.  I'm hopeful for a good Thursday.  :-)


  1. Ooh, I'm getting my hair done today too. Finally! Great minds think alike!

    Did you ever have a normal Kindle, or just the Kindle fire? I have a normal Kindle and have kind of liked the Fire's features, as well as looking at the mucho overpriced iPads, and have *thought* about getting one. Not too seriously, since I love the eInk feature, but its crossed my mind, so I thought I'd ask.

    Coming home to Amazon, or any really, packages at my front door is like a mini Christmas. Perhaps its why I shop online so much..

    1. Bah, meant to reply to this eons ago! I had a normal Kindle to start with before getting the Fire as a gift. I love both, but I do miss the built in Wi-Fi on my Kindle Fire. Not sure if that's an option on the latest phase of them, but that's the one sad part. The display is awesome, it's a great size, I really enjoy it!

      And I should have shoes from Zappos at my door today. :D All my gifts are going to my mom's house, so this is a me gift, LOL.
