Weekend Update ....on a Thursday...

So my week has been weird...not really bad, but weird. I can't explain it. My brain has been in a fog. I am feeling semi-emotional - see yesterday's post. (Thank you to everyone for your sweet and uplifting comments yesterday! THIS IS WHY I BLOG! And as someone put it to me, there's a big difference between being alone and feeling lonely. I am not alone because I have ALL OF YOU! XOXOXO!!!) I am definitely lacking motivation this week and all I've wanted to do is sleep. But in my haze I totally forgot to brag about my amazzzzzzing weekend! I checked something off my bucket list!
 
I WENT SKYDIVING!!!!!!!!!!!!
It was so crazy! The strange thing is I wasn't scared at all. I know that sounds like complete bullshit, but it's true.  I was with one of my best friends and her husband, so I'm sure that helped to ease our nerves. We all got to ride up in the plane together too. We kept waiting for an insane amount of fear to kick it and it never did. Sure, I had an "OH SHIT" moment when they opened the plane door and we were up 13,000 ft. in the air, but never did I feel like I couldn't do it. SUCH A RUSH! It was a tandem jump and my guy even let me steer the parachute into our landing...sketchy!
 



WE SURVIVED celebration drinks!
I also did Spirited Art with my work girls over the weekend and this beautiful peacock is now hanging in my office

And in case you haven't seen it on Instagram, Tilly is now Naked Tilly!

ONE MORE DAY UNTIL FRIDAY!!!!!!!

Niiki, so proud of you for making the jump! It must have been exhilarating! I hated it, and wouldn't do it again, but would really recommend that anyone do it! haha

Stephanie said...

I want to go skydiving!!! Looks like so much fun. I also want your painting. And Tilly is still cute nakie ;)

I've been in a fog this week, too. I have no idea why. I was perfectly fine last week. I hate the emotions rollercoaster.

Jen said...

Ahh I could NEVER skydive. The thought scares the sh*t out of me! Way to go for checking it off your list :)

TheTinyHeart said...

That is SO awesome that you went skydiving! I am such a wuss...I never would've been able to do that! And I already said this on IG but it's really crazy how a haircut makes Tilly look so different! She looks adorable :)

I am SO jealous, skydiving is on my list of things I desperately want to do! I just have to find someone else crazy enough to do it with me!

Jackie said...

You crazy, crazy girl! haha. I have always said I would never skydive. But, there is a teeny, itsy bitsy part of me that does kind of want to do it just to say I did it and never have to do it again!

Erin @ Keep Calm and Sparkle said...

Totally jealous of your skydive!! It's been on my bucket list for years..had the chance for high school graduation and chickened out! HA!!!

LOVE that painting and of course Tilly in her nakedness is adorable!

Helene said...

Steph G said...

I'm pretty sure I would pee my pants if I tried to do that. Congrats on being so brave. Also, I love your painting, but not quite as much as I love naked Tilly. So freaking cute.

Rachel Silski said...

Cheers to the sky diving..you are now queen of blog land as none of us have the balls to do that! Also..how cute is Tilly with no fur!

Kathryn said...

So awesome! I've said I want to skydive, but I don't think I could do it. And I love your peacock, and that Smokey painting behind you too!

Jordan said...

Super proud of you! Dereck went last year and is dying to go again and keeps begging me to do it with him but I'm like... HELL NO. I have zero desire! I know, I'm boring lol So awesome though! You are crazy girl but I love it! Glad you made it down safely :) xo

Shannon @ Bungalow960 said...

I've always wanted to go skydiving. Seeing that you survived makes me more likely to do it, haha. And naked Tilly is the cutest freaking thing ever.

Stephanie said...

NAKED TILLY!! Eeek! She's so much smaller than Hawkeye but they have the exact same fur pattern and color, you can see it when they're shaved. Destined to be besties.
Skydiving terrifies me, I'm glad you survived!!

Amy said...

Ahhh skydiving! That is so amazing! Hope you have another fantastic weekend this time around :)

SHUG IN BOOTS {Beth} said...

Girl, your balls are bigger than mine, fo sho! I don't know how to describe it exactly, but I don't think I would be afraid of the height, but instead, I'd be afraid of the gravity/g-force/my stomach & heart are now somewhere outside by body feeling. Eww. Good for you!
And Naked Tilly is makin me laugh. :)

Krysten @ Why Girls Are Weird said...

OMFG you are INSANE. My coworkers and I just bought one of our coworkers a gift certificate for skydiving. He jumps at the end of the month. I think you're both insane but I'm glad you had fun!

Jill said...

I think Tilly looks completely adorable!!! Your peacock is awesome! And...I wish I had the balls to jump out of a plane! Ahhh :)

Becca Moss said...

I'm jealous and a little frightened... you go girl!!!

Lindsey A said...

I went skydiving in '08 and loved it! I also did that painting class a couple weeks ago and it's so much fun. I can't wait to go back!

Sarah said...

OMG tilly, you are so nakey!!

I am jealous!! I wish i had the balls to go sky diving. I am so glad you got to do that!! Also, UH love the peacock painting, such skills!!

Faith said...

Gosh you ARE brave! That's an awesome one to knock off the bucket list!

Loving your painting!

Haha, naked Tilly is adorable!!

lil desiqua said...

So happy you went!! I did it 2 years ago, but I don't think I'd do it again. It was a HUGE rush, but I kinda didn't feel so great after the initial freefall- go figure! That's pretty cool that he let you steer too!

lori said...

ahhhh so crazy and fun that you skydived!!! i've always wanted to try it, but i'm pretty sure someone would have to push me out of the plane :)

Alicia Mackin said...

Oh wow sky diving that is impressive! I never went sky diving but I did go for a ride in an open (no glass windows) over Seattle once.
