Happy Oscar Day


So, I know I have already professed my love for Sundays.  I think they are the best day of the week.  Today is Oscar day which is a very special Sunday in this house since we love movies.  I have a few favorite dresses of the evening:




I also LOVE how many red heads there are out there this year.  Emma Stone is even wearing red which is totally crazy to me, but she looks beautiful.  Bradley Cooper has a horrible mustache as well... it has to go.

My day today was pretty close to perfect.  I woke up early this morning to a wonderful cup of coffee and I read my book for a while.  The dogs were extra cuddly today.  I had a few errands to run, so I threw on a sweatshirt and headed out in the windy but not too cold day.  Forgetting that stores don't really open until 11 AM, I stopped at Starbucks and had the BEST surprise.
 Quick side note:  A few months ago, my sister-in-law told us a story about listening to the Christian radio station in the Twin Cities and they talked about "drive thru difference."  A cup of coffee or breakfast meal doesn't cost very much money, so you pull up to the window and offer to pay for the car behind you.  It is such a small thing, but can really make a difference in someone's day.
So, anyways, today I pulled into the drive thru line behind about 4 cars.  I ordered a grande caramel macchiato and got my total and pulled up to the window and automatically pulled out my card and handed it to the nice, young man.  He handed it back to me and said the person in front of me covered my coffee.  I was so taken aback by this gesture.  I've done it a few times before and it actually makes me giggle wondering what kind of reaction people would have when they were told that their morning "cocktail" is covered by a complete stranger that has already pulled away.  Here I was, not sure what to do... so, I asked if he could just put the next person's drink on my card.  He smiled and laughed a little and said that I was the third person in a row to do that.  What a small little chain of events that hopefully left everyone a little happier for today.  It sure worked for me.

So, advice today... wear awesome dresses, have red hair and buy someone coffee.  Happy Sunday to all.
