Treat Yo Self Tuesday

Friends, now that we are on our third Treat Yo Self Tuesday post, let's not forget the key ingredients to treating yourself:

"Clothes. Fragrances. Massages. Mimosas. Fine. Leather Goods."

So, if you're struggling to decide with how to treat yo self, start there. For example, tonight I couldn't figure out what on earth to write about, and so I said to myself "Katie. You've got to get back to the basics." 

Today, let's focus on mimosas. If you need to treat yo self on the fly, grab a bottle of OJ and a bottle of champy and get goin'. I don't know who invented the mimosa, but I would like to congratulate that person--who knew two simple ingredients could create such a delightful, irresistible drink?

I salute you, mimosa inventor. 
In a couple of weeks, Matt and I are planning on indulging in mimosas over brunch with friends at Del Marva's Southern Cafe. Why? Because that's what you do when you're a trivia champion and you win a $50 gift certificate. This past Friday, we met up with a few of our friends at Del Marva's to play trivia. Millie had to stay overnight at the vet (because she got spayed), so we thought we might be party animals and stay out late--and boy did we ever! We were out until about 11:45, and that was rough--we kept complaining about how long trivia was taking (definite sign that you're old). 

Anyway, I've never won trivia, and we somehow managed to come back from 5th place to 1st place in the last few rounds. We had absolutely no clue we were doing so well; like I said, we were too busy checking our watches and getting mad when people took too long to turn their answers in. But, in the end our inappropriately-named team took the lead, and we accepted our prize with the quiet dignity of a true, humble champion (we kind politely clapped, grabbed our gift certificate, and got the hell out...our beds were calling to  us). And now, we will treat ourselves to brunch with that gift certificate, and enjoy every minute of it.

TREAT YO SELF: Chicken and waffles.
How do you treat yo self when you've accomplished something amazing?
