off with their heads

Hello Friday! I've officially left yesterday's head of blah behind, and guess what? I'm as good as new!
As my migraine lifted last night I found myself absolutely starving. My tummy, however, was hardly feeling ready. To make my whole body happy, I eased into relieving my hunger with plain, easy to digest foods. Can't say I didn't enjoy 'em though, especially the POM juice that I received in the mail earlier that day. I like to think that the antioxidants speeded along my recovery.
This morning I awoke ravenous, only to find that I'm almost out of oats. I immediately improvised and made a scrumptious mess of the remaining plain yogurt, walnuts, and an apple. Just what I needed to get myself out the door Hair Habitat.
I love everything about going to a hair salon, especially an eco-friendly studio one like this one: getting the shampoo, chatting with the stylist, and walking out with a fresh new 'do. I think this is one of my best cuts to date. She trimmed, layered, and angled... thoughts?
Then I met my roommate in Wonderland! From noon to two we watched Alice in Wonderland with our 3D glasses, and it was amazing. There is not a doubt in my mind that Tim Burton is a genius. After a bit of a traffic hiccup, in continuation of my bright and shiny Friday, I stopped by A La Mode for a lunch treat. As I always have, I ordered the Veggie Delight wrap (with hummus, romaine, bell peppers, avocado, cucumbers, olives, and carrots) to go.
And when I came home, I stumbled upon this in my mail box: a postcard from Gliding Calm. I cannot even imagine the incredible sights she's seen during her weeks in India! Thank you, sweetheart! As for now, "the time has come, my little friends, to talk of other things," and I'm off to Happy Hour Vinyasa. A wonderous beginning to a weekend indeed. Wishing the same for you!
Now, beneath it all
I am still resilience 
And I am forever mine
