So, we love, love, love treating ourselves…who doesn’t? But, for us, a treat isn’t always something extravagant, it’s usually something little that uplifts us and helps us through the day. It brings mental freshness to our crazy, hectic lives.
Here’s some of the stuff we love to “gift” to ourselves:
1.) Lorinda: TEA-
What? Tea? Yes, tea! I’m not a coffee drinker! I love to grab the biggest cup, fill it with lots of ice and then unsweet tea. There’s something about a fresh cup, fresh ice and freshly brewed tea…and unwrapping that straw…it’s like a tiny present to me! One of my favorite places to grab an iced tea is In-n-Out Burger. They have super delish tea, but it also reminds me of my old home in southern California. I don’t want to move back, but it’s still fun and nostalgic for me. I also love tea—extra ice please!—from Sonic and Chick-Fil-A.
2.) Amy: COFFEE-
Yes, I admit it, I’m a total coffee snob. But, you won’t usually see me at Starbucks or the local coffee café. I make mine at home. It’s a fantastic kick-start to my day, it’s always freshly brewed, and it’s the best coffee around!
3.) Lorinda: COLD COKES with LEMON
I don’t drink Coke a lot, but when I’m really craving a decadent treat, I’ll pour myself a REAL Coke on ice. When I’m at the office working and I’m stressed out, that little bitty, teeny-tiny thing—a 12 ounce Coke—can bring such peace of mind. Fresh cup, fresh ice, cold Coke!
4.) Amy: CHEESEBURGERS
Yeah, y’all, I grew up on a ranch. Yes, we raised cattle. I don’t know if that’s why I love a good cheeseburger or not, but oh my gosh, I do! And it doesn’t have to be from a fancy place, I love Whataburger and McDonalds, too. So, if I’m in need of a pick-me-up, that’s what I go for. No, it’s not expensive or fancy, but dang it’s good.
5.) Amy & Lorinda: PILATES & YOGA/WORKING OUT
Amy: I make it a point to go to Pilates at least twice a week. I’m not gonna go on Saturday, I go during the week. It’s one date I won’t cancel. Pilates is a huge break and treat for me. It’s my time to get away from the office and take part in something that’s so good for me, mentally and physically. I recharge my batteries and it makes me much easier to be around!
Lorinda: Yoga or working out! It’s amazing how a good sweat can change your whole out look on a day or something crazy that happened in your day. Most of the time, okay all of the time I go 90 to nothing. I was born with natural crack in my blood. Working out keeps me in balance and makes my mind thinK straight. Or if all else fails I just go to a barrel race with Prince and all is one!
So, those are a few of the things that keep us going. We believe it’s important for women to do special things for themselves, because we deserve it, y’all! Figure out some little stuff that makes you happy and refreshes you, because if you’re joyful, it’ll make everyone around you more joyful, too!
