My birthday is February 23. On the 23rd of each month, I've been sharing a couple of random things about me. So, for the month of May...
41) I like fleece pants (and I cannot lie).
[I cannot explain why Sir Mix-A-Lot popped into my head as I was about to extol the virtues of fleece pants…but he did…and for some reason it strikes me as far too funny this morning. Need.More.Coffee.]
I bought my first pair of fleece pajama pants some time around 1998. I have since bought many pairs, but I am still true to my original pair, in their ratty pink-with-white-snowflake glory. It’s those pants I wore my first night home from the hospital after the girls were born, a tiny little piece of comfort food for the soul.
I wear fleece pants all year ‘round. I rationalize that’s why we have air conditioning!
42) I haven’t painted my toenails in about eight years.
While I used to enjoy the occasional manicure in high school and college, for some reason I never had a pedicure until I was in my late 20’s. It was love at first footbath, though, and I don’t think I’ve painted my own toenails since.
I forewent all polish when I was pregnant, but I still continued to get pedicures every couple of weeks. These days I only make it to the nail salon every four or five weeks, but I maintain it just helps me feel “human”. I love meeting up with a girlfriend and chatting in side-by-side massage chairs. And I also love going by myself with a good book. I usually try to treat myself to a Starbucks afterwards since it’s conveniently on the way home. Ahhh!
And yes, my polish usually lasts four or five weeks these days. Flip-flops being my primary footwear will do that for ya!
See you next month! :)
