Tuesday's Top Ten: I Feel Happy, Oh So Happy

Why Kate The Great Feels Especially Great This Week:

10. I had a fun, wonderful dinner with two friends last night. I love to cook dinner anytime, but it's especially great when I get to share my home and culinary talents with fun people. Pork chops, red potatoes and green beans were on the menu.

9. Yesterday's doctor visit has inspired me to kick my exercise and diet regimen into high gear. I am going to try and drink more water and eat less sugar. I'm not making any rules about alcohol...

8. I am really looking forward to seeing my good friend GOP Big Wig. I am going to the Reds game Saturday with GBW, her husband and a friend of theirs. Should be a good time... Too bad Saturday isn't the Adam Dunn John Deere trucker hat night. That would have been a major score...

7. Speaking of Saturday: Can I tell you how much I have been anticipating my cut and highlight? My monthly appointments got out of whack after my schedule changed and I had to wait until July to get everything back on track. Blonde Ambition returns to the top of my noggin' - stay tuned.

6. I'm really thankful for today's rain. My tomato plant looked really pathetic after I forgot to water it yesterday, and today's showers are sure to pump - it - up.

5. Payday is Friday. Need I explain the reasons for my happiness on this one?

4. I've got a good movie waiting at home. I love it when I've got a good flick waiting at home for me thanks to the good people at Netflix. Tonight's movie: Rumor Has It.

3. I'm really jazzed about a new store opening in Oakley. The Fresh Market is bringing it's first Cincinnati store to my part of town. It will be so great to not have to drive to the HP bigg's or Kroger for milk and eggs. Now I can just walk a couple blocks to get the good stuff...

2. Still diggin' on The Biscuit. Got an email this morning and it sounds like we're on for a date next Tuesday. I could go on and on and on about my crush but I will contain it to a respectable level of excitement. I think there's a lot of potential with The Biscuit...

1. My apartment is the cleanest it's been in months. You could literally eat off the floor of my kitchen, with clean silverware I washed myself. Afterwards, you could recline on my couch - which is devoid of any articles of clothing.

I don't know whether cleanliness is next to Godliness, but it is pretty damn good.

We need to invent a way to stay accountable with the exercise thing. I have a treadmill at my disposal but the only thing I exercise is my arm while raising a wine glass to my mouth.

Spydrz- I'm swinging by on my home from work to check it out... They're giving free bricks of coffee away. Yippee!

D- I used to have this wonderful friend who would go walking with me around the neighborhood for exercise. Then we'd go to the bar down the street for Blue Moons and the occasional appetizer or cockroach.

Those were the days...

The Fresh Market to us foodies is what crack is to junkies. LexVegas is getting one soon in the old Slones on Tates Creek...I am so excited.

I think I'm also going on the blonde ambition tour - slowly going blonde, yayayayya!
