5 star bingo - day one

Saturday, June 09, 2012

First, I have to say emoticon to the Admin group of BLC19 that put this one together. I had a great day doing things that I would NEVER do on my own. I sat and read for almost half an hour ("50 Shades of Grey") while my feet soaked in the foot spa my MIL gave me. Four months ago. I had to break it out of the box. Incidentally, foaming foot bath actually does foam.

Kind of reminded me of my first experience with a jacuzzi tub....
Anyway, I also gave myself a facial. Peppermint mud masque to be exact. It was supposed to be "cooling" and good for destressing. My face feels softer now but I had to sit through ten minutes of not knowing whether I'd ever move it again. I thought that stuff would stay soft. Apparently not.

Lastly, I stepped out of my comfort zone and tried something I have never done before: eating okra. It, in the words of PEHASS2, will not make it into our regular routine meals BUT it was good enough that both of us ate it.

Oh and for the Amazons that are reading this - BLACKOUT!

    Facial looks awesome! BTW, I love okra. We put it in a crockpot gumbo that we make and yum!

    50 Shades of Grey? I'm giggling. I'm reading it for the 2nd time now. Not written particularly well and the woman has clearly never opened a thesaurus, but damn!

    This is a fun challenge. I must say, my hands look better than they have for weeks.

    Thanks for the pics.

    Got my blackout too - but okra? You are a brave woman! Ugh.
