Lately, I have been catching up on the series Parks and Recreation.  I know, the show has been on for four seasons, but I haven't seen an episode until this fall when Vice President Biden made a guest appearance.  Since then, between Netfilx and DVDs, I am almost all caught up.  There was an episode during season 4 in which the characters of Tom (Aziz Ansari) and Donna (Rhetta) went on their yearly day of indulgence with the motto "Treat Yo Self"

What I took away from this episode is not to go out and spend frivolously, but to "treat yo'self" on a regular basis.  It could be as simple as taking 10 minutes of "me time" in the middle of the day to just be.  It could be a night out with friends/significant other at your favorite restaurant.  It also could be your daily workout.  So this week, when stress is piling up or life is getting to you, remember to take time and "Treat Yo'Self".

Whether is is simple or over indulgent, what is your favorite way to "Treat Yo'Self"?

**Disclaimer: I was asked to promote the Great Big Home + Garden show on my blog.  In return, I was given a pair of tickets to giveaway, and another for me and a guest to "treat ourselves" at the show.  As always, opinions are 100% my own**


  1. TREAT YO SELF! I love it. For Treat Yo Self Days (my birthday usually), I buy myself a large Dewey's Wild Mushroom pizza and then I eat the entire thing. By myself. It's incredible.

    1. Love it! I could probably do the same after a long run!

  2. What a great clip of the day!

    I treat myself by turning on my favorite make-me-happy show (Say Yes to the Dress) and indulging in a salty or sweet treat (popcorn or cookie dough!)

    1. Yummy, especially the cookie dough!!
