Strong 8


What I need on a regular basis is to be reminded that I am a girl!! No, seriously, I get caught up in work (addictive personality?) and then suddenly everything feels like work, including shopping, manicures, and even eyebrow trimming. Luckily, Ani to the rescue. We had some good ol' fashioned girl time- key ingredients are shopping, eating, and talking about life, which can mean fashion, money, boys.

1. Shopping
We literally shopped to the point that we had to walk back to the car just to drop off bags. And then go a second round!

2. Food
What's a well stocked fridge look like-- I know it's been many years since college, but a good girlfriend weekend rounds off nicely with junk food!

3. Conversation
We talked about artists, setting up a studio, swim lessons for kids, financial advisors, life drama and what it means to be happy...On a scale of 10, 1 being "I am a waste of oxygen" and 10 being Wow, we agreed that our lives were a "Strong 8."

How happy are you on your scale of 10?

hmmm quantifying happiness; how Nordic! OK anything in my book over 8 is pretty darn fantabulous, so I guess this minute I'm 8.25/8.5. Glad to hear you are strong, Ruffles are very good for that. xox

I need to come hang out with you and get to an 8! :) Sounds like a deliciously fun weekend! Glad to hear you're smiling and taking a break from work.

cant figure out what women get out of shopping and having some designer have his name on the shopping bag.... but well the happiness quotient i can understand... did you know that Bhutan has a Gross National Happiness Index!!

Ani - you know, we should plan something for Memorial Day Weekend!

Hilary - I dont know about the Nordic scale of happiness...I think it's from that Global Happiness book, yes? Good you are an 8.5! I think I'd be giddy if I were any more than that.

Laura - I have been keeping up with you on FB! can you believe it's been about 2 years since you agreed to be be my advisor!

Vinay - bro, there is a lot to be said for retail therapy. Your wife and daughter would vouch for it! Yep, knew about Bhutan. Been reading a lot about happiness.
