Treat Yo Self!

Whilst on maternity leave, I probably made the greatest purchase of my life: a subscription to Netflix.

Because of said purchase, I have been binge watching all the shows I’ve always wanted to watch. One of these shows is Parks and Recreation. 

This show is HILARIOUS. Seriously, if you’ve never watched, do it. Its awesome. Anyway, moving on…


In one of the episodes, Tom (played by Aziz Ansari) and Donna (played by Retta–so cool she only needs one name) are celebrating their annual day of pleasure called: Treat Yo Self Day. What is Treat Yo Self Day? Let my homies explain:


Naturally, this episode cracked me up. But then I started thinking: What if did Treat Yo Self Day? What would I do?


Here’s my TYS game plan (if I ever get to have a TYS Day):

1. Eat three courses of cheesecake at The Cheesecake Factory.

2. Buy the Body Bugg heart rate monitor I’ve always wanted (so I can make sure I’ve burned of all the calories from the cheesecake).

Treat yo self.


3. Get a massage, facial, and scalp treatment.

4. Watch two movies back to back in the Warren Theater Director’s Suites and order the biggest popcorn imaginable.

5. Buy something from Sky Mall. I don’t really care what it is, honestly. I just REALLY want to buy something from Sky Mall.

6. Buy the boxed set of Frasier and watch it while drinking a milkshake.

Treat. Yo. Self. 


What would you do to treat yo self?

Donna. Droppin' truth bombs.
