Okay, I know this looks like Sat morning, but it is still Friday night on the West Coast.

I have to admit, I am pretty much the typical California Girl. I love a good tan, ocean waves, a sea breeze and to shop. Boy oh boy do I love to shop! And not just for the pricey things. I can shop for anything, but the BEST shopping in the WHOLE world, is the good deal. I don't care if it is saving mega bucks on the monthly groceries - savings = girlie things like - gel nails, or getting a new workout outfit on sale and with a coupon on top of that. The art of the deal is the best part of shopping. And for me, California Girl that I am - shopping also includes anything I can do to wiggle more room in my budget to play.

Today I took my CA Redemption bottles and cans into the recycler. Yeah for the environment. But more importantly, I was on a mission. My hair has been driving me NUTS!!! and I needed a hairdo. That poor dude at the recycling stop had no idea I was coming and probably would have hid if he did. Bag after bag after bag of bottles, cans, and plastics were unloaded and sorted into his holding cans. After he weighed my treasure, he then handed me a reciept for 30.00. SCORE!!

Off to the hair cutters I went. I got washed, cut, styled and blown dry, plus tip for 26.50. Then off to the coffee shop for 3.50 in sugar free, nonfat mocha [80 cal]. It may have rained up my way today, but after a morning like I had, all I could see was sunshine!

I so love it when a day starts with everything going my way!! From recycling, to haircuts, to coffee, and then lunch out with hubby..... Could I have had any more perfect day in paradise?? Well, I guess I could live at the beach, but....alas, I still had a pretty kickin' day!

Hope everyone else had a great Friday too!!
