Lippy, Lotion and Undies Oh My...

Y'all know the quote "what if you wake up tomorrow only with the things you thanked God for today?"  Well it has really been ringing in my head lately.  I've been a mad woman this week.  All consumed with my volunteer gigs.  Both are now in full swing and I am having a little trouble finding my balance.  I'll get there.  But it might take me another week or so. 

In the meantime, I thought I might share a few things for which I am forever grateful.

* My puppy.  She is my fur baby.  The best part of my day is when she jumps up on the bed to give me good morning kisses.

* My daddy.  I am not particularly close to my family.  And y'all know I've not spoken to my mother in a decade.  But my dad is my best friend.

* My local girlfriends.  I've really struggled to find my roots in this town.  And honestly, I am not sure they are here even now.  It's not that I live in an unfriendly area.  It's actually incredibly nice and friendly up here.  But you absolutely will not fit in if you are not married with children.  It's a family oriented part of the country.  And well...  But I have made a lot of really sweet girlfriends through my volunteering gigs.  Especially the League.  I am so grateful for the conversations and giggles that we get to have at meetings and happy hours. 

* My besties.  They are my soul mates.  Love love.

* Summer.  I never thought about summer as anything more than a school break growing up.  I mean, I'm from Fort Lauderdale, FL.  Summer is the same as any given Tuesday.  But up here, in the North Pole, summer is celebrated.  You find any reason to be outside, even if you sweat your fanny off.  And things grow.  Like tomatoes.  You can wear flip flops.  And sundresses.  No layers or coats required.  And it's light outside so late.  That might be one of the best parts of summer actually. 

* McDonald's Diet Cokes.  I try not to drink them very often.  But mmmm they are sooooo yummy!  Crack in a cup.

* Lippy and hand lotion.  I must re-apply lip balm and hand lotion a dozen times a day.  At least.

* My blackberry.  I like talking to people in person, via email or BBM.  I am not a big fan of phone chats.  But I appreciate that I can do it all and then some on one little pink piece of plastic.

* Good undies. Try going through your day in bad undies. It's a make it or break it moment when you are standing there in front of the underwear drawer each and every morning!  Choose wisely.

Girl I know what you mean about good panties. If you have a hot comfy pair on it makes you feel great!

Also your summer post made me really nostalgic for a midwestern summer (not sure if thats where you are) but I miss them so much.

The worst if a pair of thongs that just rides up and you are wearing a dress. Uncomfs!

Loved this -- have been feeling like I need to calm myself down and take a few minutes to be grateful each day

I totally agree with you about the undies. If I have a bad undies day, I normally just throw them away when I get home. I don't give uncomfy undies second chances!

I am with you on the lippy and lotion. I have them in every purse, my car, by my bed, etc.

Now i'm craving a mcdonald's diet coke. Heaven!

Amen to good undies I just went out and bought some today.

Peachy Keen said...

So true about the undies...wise words!

Hope you have a fabulous weekend and have a bit of downtime!

My mom always says to wear your good underwear if you leave the house in case you have to go to the hospital. You don't want someone to see subpar unmentionables!

You have to go to a Forever 21 at least once! It takes some rummaging to find anything good, but the prices are great and a lot of things are cute! Give it a shot!!
