2 years in a row I have been working out of town during my favorite week: Valentines & my birthday. The two days of the year that are supposed to be romantic and 'all-about-me' have somehow been replaced with an uncomfortable uniform, suffocating gas mask and exhausting 14 hour work shifts. Yay.........
But not that I'm complaining. I love the Reserves - it's just the timing of these events usually BLOWS.
Mr. C surprised me this morning with a urgent packaged delivered to my dorm room full of Rocky Mountain chocolates, a Nordstrom bag FULL (yes -full!) of MAC makeup, cinnamon jelly beans and the most romantic card ever. Awwwww - so sweet.
However....between you and me I'm glad Mr. C can't see me right now. Why you ask? Because stupid BUGS have been biting me on my face while I sleep, and I have giant red scaly spots on my face. BONUS: I am puffy thanks to an exclusive diet of MRE's (meals ready to eat. Read: high sodium & fat). As you can imagine - I feel (and look) GUH-ROSS.
I'm hoping to bounce back to normal by Saturday so I can look great for my surprise-location birthday dinner. So excited - but will condsider canceling if I look like I have a case of the 'fat-face-chicken-pox'!
