I'm Walking on Sunshine...

Whoa, whoa whoa!

Have you ever felt so excited that you thought you might throw up?

Yeah, I know it's a gross image. Deal with it.

But seriously, I got some exciting news today and was so ecstatic that I couldn't finish my lunch. Maybe my body just didn't want peanut butter today, but still...

On a whim, I suggested that my best friend join me and the fam for a few days in sunny Florida on vacation. I hadn't gotten my hopes up because she's busy rockin' out her life in Boston (not to mention preparing to take the bar next month), but she's opted to take advantage of this golden opportunity and join us. Woohoo!!! Of course, I have vowed to quietly read a book while she studies a bit each day, but still... we're going to have a fabulous time.

Then I realized I have a lot to be excited about right now. This is shaping up to be a pretty fantastic week, and it's only Tuesday!

Not only do I have a 10-day vacation to look forward to, but now I get to look forward to Steph joining us for a few days.

And I've pretty much been rockin' out at work lately to get tons knocked out so that me being gone for 6 days will not cause everything to fall apart. Plus, I promised to get an office operations manual completed before I go for one of our customers, so I have to get that done.

And I'm running one of my favorite races this Saturday. Nevermind the fact that I'm terrifically underprepared (and while we're at it, let's also forget that I'm going to be donning a bathing suit in less than 2 weeks and I've hardly worked out this past month).

And one of my really good friends from Knoxville is also coming into town to run said race. He is, in the words of the Bob, "a hoot." We all love having a good hoot around.

And we'll be eating lunch at one of my favorite places that I pretty much only eat at once a year following this Bell Buckle race.

AND... there may be more. But that's between me, myself, and I for the time being.

Needless to say, it's a gorgeous day outside (seriously, it's surprisingly pleasant and not hot and humid here in TN today) and I'm fighting to end my break and get back to work. I feel like I could go run for hours right now. Or spin around in circles like a little girl. Or kiss someone.

I'm happy. And excited. And really looking forward to a lot of things now.

Can I add one more? I bought the new Coldplay album when I went home for lunch. I'm letting the old ipod charge a bit, but then I'm turning it on and checking out the new tunes while I work on this manual. Nothing like a new album to make work a little more exciting, especially when you're having a terrific day.

So much fun stuff going on...I am jealous that you get to go to the beach. I need a tan.

Shut your mouth size 2 pants year round! Your stomach might not be a washboard, but it is definitely at least an ironing board. I don't think you've got anything to worry about bathing suit wise. AND I have put on a bathing suit in OVER A YEAR. How disgusting is that?

db said...

I meant, I HAVE NOT put on a bathing suit. I tried to think on it and see if I could leave it alone and it would still work. But I couldn't. So, it's supposed to be haven't.

I love that new Coldplay song on the ipod commercial. Sounds like an exciting week!
