If the title of my post scared you, no worries, all is well with Matt and I! But last week, Matt had to leave town unexpectedly, and I found myself with a lot of free time and space, enjoying some of the single girl things I haven't gotten to enjoy in a while. Don't worry, these single girl things didn't include dancing on table tops or cruising the town for hottie patottoies (I didn't do that even when I was single.) I haven't changed too many of my habits since getting married, but let's face it, there are just some things that are a little easier to enjoy when you're on your own, with a bit more "you" time. Here are a few of the small things that I enjoyed last week as a single girl...
A movie night where the front runners were Mean Girls, Big Fat Liar, Wish Upon a Star, and Dear John. (I went with Dear John.)
Candles lit in every single room without teasing that our apartment looks like we're hosting a seance.
Pouring over fashion mags in my leopard robe.
Having at least cans 4 of Diet Dr. Pepper sprinked through the house and not being sure which one I'm actually drinking out of.
Blasting my girly girl ipod playlist while dancing around doing laundry.
A big, comfy bed all to myself.
Back to back episodes of Friday Night Lights and Toddlers and Tiaras. (And don't judge me if "back to back" is more like back to back to back to back.)
Maintaining a diet of chicken noodle soup and macaroni and cheese.
Sleeping in on Saturday.
Putting on mascara while belting out the Glee soundtrack.
Catching up on blog reading with a glass of red wine in hand.
By the time Sunday rolled around, I'd had my fill of my mac and cheese, and I'm certain my neighbors were about to call animal control on the screeching cats downstairs that were attempting their best Rachel Berry show tunes. So it was a good thing Matt came home. (And the fact that I missed him like crazy.) But for a few days, it was a certainly nice to take advantage of a little "me" time and enjoy my guilty pleasures. Whether you're single, married, engaged, neither, or both (although both would be a little weird) what are the things you love doing when you find yourself with a little extra downtime?
