A date with my self

By Sunday, October 24, 2010 11 Permalink 0

Oh…I’ve been pushing this post since the beginning of October. It is hard figuring out what a date with moi, alone would be like. Here goes nothing.

Option A.
We live in Portland. Land of the 222 days of full on wetness. But not complaining, I love the rain, just not when i have straighten my hair, please.

In the case the weather is forgiving, meaning not a torrential rain or no rain at all I would like to go shopping. I am torn between Bridgeport Village or Washington Square Mall.

Zero rain = Bridgeport Village
Rain = Washington Square Mall

After my retail therapy I’d have a bite to eat. Bridgeport has restaurant. Washington Square a lame food court.

After eating i’d like to go to a book store and relax. Have a nice cup of coffee, flip through some magazine, look for new books. Come home and take a hot shower and snuggle on the couch with my boys.

Option B.
I’d like to lock myself in my room with a few snacks and drinks. Water, coffee. Chips, cookies, candy, you name it. And spend the whole day, me, myself and I, together playing The Sims 3!

No interruptions.

One day.

What would your date with yourself be like? What would you do?

    A date with myself.. I would first start with a large delicious coffee and then go get a pedicure. Then maybe Lloyd Center followed by Powells. I would probably opt for Washington Square over Bridgeport for retail therapy :).

      Powells sounds nice!! My fave is the one downtown…a book and a nice cup of cafe!

    My date day would start with sleeping in (which would only be possible if Scott would walk the dogs for me). Then, go get a massage and a pedicure – my 2 favorite spa treatments! Lunch somewhere relaxing – like a tea room or fancier cafe. After that, a trip to Hallmark – to read cards for fun. (I LOVE reading cards – even if I don’t buy them. It is one of my stress-relieving activities!) Maybe going for a drive out in the country or sitting by a lake somewhere (if it’s not hot OR buggy) – and topped off with a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup Blizzard!
    Ahhhhh – bliss!

      I love the Blizzard idea!! And the massage…and the sleeping in tops it all off!!

    Dutch Bros for an ER911 (pumpkin flavor) Washington Square Mall because it is my favorite and the weather is getting to crappy for Nob Hill shopping, I have wanted to check out the shops in the Mississippi district though, maybe worth getting a little wet. They have great food in that area too. I love a good happy hour!
    A pedi cure would be nice too, even though only my socks would get to see.

      Would you believe me if I tell you I’ve never had a pedicure…or a manicure at all!? Am I weird?
