Keep Your Bloomin' Onion and Endless Margarita, It's Friday and I'm Taking a Bath! Keep Your Bloomin' Onion and Endless Margarita, It's Friday and I'm Taking a Bath!

Even though it irks the heck out of me when people post lame "T.G.I.F." status updates on Facebook, I'll admit that sometimes that's precisely my sentiment. But, while many of those FB friends are undoubtedly heading out to [insert favorite bar -- as long as it's not Hooters -- here], to ring in the weekend, my dream destination is my bathroom.

In terms of beauty, I peaked at 26. Or so that's what I thought at the time. I remember totally freaking out on my 27th birthday, convinced that I was officially "old" and that my best years were behind me.
