A few contributing factors to my Super Perfect Tuesday:
-Better-than-average eyeliner day.
Three different coworkers offered (unsolicited...as opposed to the clearly solicited-for compliments I received via Instagram, ha) compliments! One of them even said that she couldn't stop staring at my eye makeup during a meeting! I mean...I am absolutely vain enough that that totally made my day.
-The weather. I know, you're sick of hearing me blabber about the weather. But I am Weather Wifey-- I can't be stopped!!! It was 80!! It was sunny!! It was breezy!! It was 100% perfection, and even though I'm cooped up in my windowless office for 7 hours of the day, it's somehow more enjoyable just knowing how great it is outside.
-Due to the fabulous weather, our lunchtime walk was even greater than normal. I stopped for my first iced coffee (caramel macchiato, to be technical) of the year. ICED COFFEE!! SO WONDERFUL!!! There wasn't even a line at Starbucks!!
-Then we went and laid on a grassy North Campus (UGA) quad for a few minutes, along with about half the rest of the population of Athens. I mean, seriously. There couldn't have possibly been any students in classes yesterday. They were all (logically) swarming the quads...sunning, reading, playing Frisbee? Perfection. It was picturesque and made me incredibly thankful to work two blocks from the prettiest campus in the world (my humble opinion).

-We bought and planted our veggies!! I have declared that it cannot possibly freeze again, so we're safe to plant! So we did! And much happiness abounded.
-Speaking of things in the yard...our surprise pink tulips had another surprise in store for us. A bunch of yellow brethren springing up two weeks later than the pinks!! It's the funniest thing! I guess yellow ones require a little more marination time? The pinks have been up for two weeks, and all of a sudden we have 4 or 5 yellow ones pop up on the same day!
-I was so happy about the day that I was even excited to cook dinner-- and this has NOT happened in MONTHS. Normally I'm tolerant (at best) about cooking dinner...and this is with Matt doing most of the work, even!! But last night I was just so happy I volunteered to do it all on my own while Matt dug holes for the veggies...and it was SO GOOD! We're still doing eMeals and it is almost always good, but on a day like yesterday, it was only fitting that the meal be EXTRA SUPER GOOD. And it was.
It was a really ordinary day, but it was full of happy things. The next time I'm all woe is meeeee and hating life, someone remind me to come back and read this. Or actually, don't. I'll probably punch you. But maybe I'll remind myself. :)
