THURSDAY THOUGHTS

FEELING: I'm absolutely elated about the three-day weekend! It's shaping up to be rather eventful, and that makes me one happy gal. Woo Hoo! We'll probably have a low-key Valentine's evening at home and watch the House of Cards season two premiere. Pretty wild and crazy, right?! But on Saturday, we have plans to visit Fredericksburg—a cute town in the Texas hill country with lots of snacks, shopping, and antiques. I've got my eye on stores like Dogologie and Red. A change of scenery sounds so refreshing!

LISTENING TO: I can't stop listening to Pharrell's "Happy"—it puts me in a great mood and gives me the urge to start clapping and dancing. Whenever it plays, my intensity level drops, my worries disappear, and I'm carefree. Sounds like the perfect song, right?!

THINKING ABOUT: To preserve my hair's color and condition, I try to only wash it once every two days. Hooray for dry shampoo! To be terribly honest, I really hate to dry and style my hair (I'm lazy), so it's also a really great excuse to just throw it up in a top-knot of some sort. Well, I think I may have overdone it today because the dry shampoo wasn't even cutting it. Ha Ha! Of course I already took a bath and put on my makeup before I came to this realization. Do you ever do this? I hate when I take shortcuts like this. I inevitably feel like a hot mess the entire day. You know it's bad when you can't get your hair to cooperate, even in a "messy" updo. Apparently three days without washing m' weave just won't cut it. I guess it's time to shampoo for real this time.   

EATING: This week, I whipped up Cooking Classy's Creamy Broccoli and Chicken Quinoa Casserole. It was amaze balls! I wouldn't say it's the quickest meal to throw together, but I think you could save time and use a rotisserie chicken instead. Oh, and the cream sauce was the tastiest part—that's probably a no-brainer, but I just thought I'd throw that out there. 

DRINKING: I gave the Starbucks Caramel Flan Latte a whirl this week and it's tasty, but I still prefer my trusty Caramel Macchiato. 

WATCHING: I just learned that we're going to see You've Got Mail at the Alamo Drafthouse tonight. Somebody pinch me (and wash my hair)! I distinctly remember the last time I saw my favorite movie in the theater (hello, middle school), and I honestly never thought I'd get the opportunity to see it on the big screen again. Yippee! For those of you who asked about the "152 Reasons I Love You've Got Mail" image and article in Monday's post, I contacted the author and she's going to make it available online very soon. I'll keep you posted as soon as I have a link. I know all the Kathleen Kelly and Joe Fox fans are going to eat it up. It's SO good!

LOVING: A fellow Instagrammer told me about this adorable YouTube video in which a squirrel hides nuts in a Bernese Mountain Dog's fur. It's flipping precious! Being the nut-job dog parents (Ha!) that we are, we had Beesly watch the clip on our iPad. Her expressions were darling, but I'm a little bit biased. Aren't BMDs the most gentle giants? My goodness, I love Berners!

THANKFUL FOR
With Valentine's Day tomorrow, I just want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for stopping by and making One Fine Day a part of your daily/weekly routine. As the blog has slowly grown, you've shown me and this little creative space so much love. I truly appreciate your kindness and encouragement. It means so very much to me!

What about you? How are you feeling today? What are you up to? I better go wash m' hair.
Pin It!
