5 on a Friday


{ONE}
I cannot get enough Ron Swanson and Parks & Rec. I DVR reruns so I have about 4 new ones per day. I love it. If you don't know who Ron Swanson is then I question your sense of humor...

{TWO}
The music that I listen to on my way to work in the mornings sets my attitude for the day. These days I listen to a lot of worship music to get in the zone for a good attitude. This morning I needed to hear throwback jams. Lil Jon, Lil Wayne, old school LB and Elton John. It's gonna be a good day!
 
 
 
{THREE}
I found an old folder on my laptop last night full of wedding planning pictures - pics of my dress, my bridesmaids in their dresses, ideas for décor. It made me laugh a little bit that for whatever reason I never deleted it when Skye and I broke up OVER A YEAR AGO. So thankful that I can laugh at those things instead of crying now. It actually inspired me to do some creative writing - which I may or may not share with you soon.
 
{FOUR}
The past couple weeks have been exhausting for me! Working longer days, lots of after work activities, too much time on the phone with people from damage restoration and insurance companies. I've been in by around 10pm every night -which is not the norm for me. I've been go, go, go so when Friday comes around I am one happy girl.
 
{FIVE}
Speaking of being exhausted.... I am dreaming of a vacay. Somewhere tropical, with strong drinks and tan bodies. I need a partner in crime to just pack up and run away with me for a week. I'm not the kind of girl who would do a vacay alone. Could you do that?? Who's in??

I'm so happy you were able to laugh and not cry and I can't wait to see what creative writing you've gotten from it :)

I'm so so so happy you can laugh now and not break down. And even if you did/do in the future, it's still okay. You are so strong girlfriend!

Hope you have a great weekend :)!

Elton John can always make for a good day! Love me some Sir Elton! I love that you were inspired to write! I miss writing stories.

And of course you know I'm down for running away. I have access to a condo on the beach in Florida. So say the world and we're off!!!!

Tracy said...

Isn't is crazy that you can laugh about that stuff now?? I never thought I would see the day when me and my ex broke up!! :) That just shows how strong we are and that WE aren't the ones in control!!

Have a great weekend!!

Jill @ Bluegrass Belle said...

I'm totally down for that tropical vaca. Also, I saw Ron Swanson last year when I was in LAX. I knew he was famous, but I didn't really watch the show at the time to know who he was. How embarrassing.

Rachel S said...

I am so glad you can laugh about that stuff now! It shows how much you have grown from where you were! You are doing amazing!

MommyMandy Musings said...

Laughing is always better than crying:) And I am definitely in on that vacation!!

Jordon said...

Oh the things I would do for a warm sunny vacation right now!

So happy you were able to laugh instead of cry! I actually remembered I have a private Pinterest board full of motivational stuff that I would pin when I was going through my break up. I haven't looked at it since... but I'm thinking it's time to delete!

And YES to vacation!! I need one so bad! I'm thinking somewhere in the Caribbean...mmm....

Amanda Elizabeth - Meet @ the Barre said...

Yeah what an amazing turn point! I need a vacation too! These long days and short weekends are no fun :-(

Cassie said...

i think you know TWO partners in crime who would go to the beach with you ANY day!!

ps - kim is looking for a partner to go to cancun in a few months!!

Elise @ Cheers Yall said...

YES! I could definitely hop on over to a tropical vacation. Living at the beach isn't like living at the beach when it's 21 degrees outside! EEEEP!
Love that LOVE FRIDAY graphic too. So fun! Happy weekend!!! xx

I would love a vacation. That sounds amazing.

Steph G said...

I love Ron Swanson. My husband has a very similar attitude and it's quite entertaining.

Joey said...

I'm so glad you were able to laugh. You are the strongest gal I know. Seriously. I'd be so interested in seeing your creative writing!! Definitely share it! Ok, so it's not exactly tropical--but when it warms up let's go to the beach!!! I'd totally be down for a beach vacay. I'm also still dead set on us doing Boone once things slow down for both of us. Totally a different Kind of getaway but still all kinds of relaxing!!! Love you!!

Ashley Robyn said...

I will meet you wherever you decide to go. YAY for being able to laugh at your old folder. That's a big step sweet friend. Now come to Texas already. The beaches suck but well...I'm here. haha

Janna Renee said...

I find old stuff on my computer/hard drive from my ex, and it makes me laugh too!

Beth Lane said...

This is my first time visiting your blog and I was immediately sucked in by a gif that said "butthole." I think this is the start of a very beautiful blogging friendship. ;) :)
