5 on Friday | Valentine's Ideas for Yourself

This is the 4th out of 5 Valentine's Days that Scott and I have spent apart.  Really, I don't care, because we spend so much time together anyway.  But in honor of V-Day, here are 5 things you can do, by yourself tomorrow.  Do a combination of all of them for pretty much my most perfect day ever.
{1} {2} {3} {4} {5}

1.  Throw on your yoga pants and binge watch Friends all day.  -  Extra point if you have dogs to snuggle in to watch with you.

2.  Go Thrifting-  I saw on Facebook today, that a local antique store was going out of business.  They're having a sale Thursday through Saturday.  I may make my way into town and check out what is left after 3 days of being picked over.  

3.  Read a book-   I've been trying to finish Near Enemy by Adam Sternergh to get a review up here.  It's not going well.  It could be because of the terrible grammar and lack of quotation marks when people are talking.  Or it could be because I made the mistake of ordering an ebook, and only being able to read it on my phone.  Candy Crush piques my interest long before I can get through a chapter.

4.   Get a massage or facial- While perusing Groupon, I found tons of offers for massages, facials, and other spa treatments.  I ultimately talked myself out of a half-price facial and microderm session, deciding that it's not as cost-effective if I'm driving 100 miles round-trip to get.  Someday.

5.  Order yourself some Shari's Berries-  There is a Groupon special for Tallahassee, and I assume other areas.  $15 for $30 worth of chocolate-covered goodness!

    I'd love some chocolate covered strawberries - my favorite and I'd also take a massage today lol! Have a great weekend! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  7. Unfortunately this is in a tiny town, so I'm thinking that most of the stuff is gone by now, but we'll see!

  8. The only thing that could make it better is tracking down some thin mints and eating a box.... or 6!

  9. I only use groupon every now and then... usually for online things, like $4 for a $10 starbucks card. i really need to use it more!

  10. Hahah you can see that my weekending post will be full of exciting endeavors... 95% of which are taking place from my couch :)

  11. My husband and I actually plan on hitting up some thrift shops tomorrow haha. It has been our weekend thing lately. I hope you have a great weekend!

  12. Thanks! As it turned out, I'm too lazy this weekend to even leave the house :) But it's been nice just the same!

  13. I love to go to thrift shops. You can usually find such good stuff. I need a massage in the worst way. I hope you had a great Valentine's day. Thanks so much for linking up to H54F!
