Sweet Dreams are Made of These, Who Am I to Disagree?

I went for a walk today, and didn't stop walking until I had blisters on the bottoms of my feet. And even then I didn't stop. I took off my mocassins, and kept walking in bare feet until I got home. Next time, sneakers for sure. On my walk, I passed a no loitering sign that tempted me into loitering, because that's just the kind of rebel that I am. Then I passed a cool house with gaudy gold trim. Wow, I didn't see THAT on my walks before.
Later on I went to a Lia Sophia jewelry party at a neighbor's house (she makes the best taco salad y'all). It was kind of awesome. I ordered something for my dear sister who will be visiting me this month, and something for my best friend's birthday, and a little something for me. Actually, I wished it was all for me, but that's just bad Karma or something.
Then I got a cool belated birthday present from my son and his awesome girlfriend (refer to the picture of them on my sidebar if you want to see how cool they are). I was so surprised, and really touched by the message inside the card (which I am not sharing with you, because it's personal, yo).
On a final note, Marie Claire posted an article on inspirational women, and Michelle Phan was mentioned as the new Kevin Aucoin. Those are some mighty big shoes to fill.

Chris, I've got a thing for Star Wars (the 1st one) and my son knows it. I saw it 11 or 12 times in theater when it first came out, and I can't even count how many since.

Evi, thank you so much honey. I think my arms look too long in that shot, like Plastic Man.
