I’m in a crazy good mood today, so it’s time for (read with a loud announcer voice) 10 THINGS MAKING ME HAPPY RIGHT NOW!
1.Imagine this scene: Standing on a paddle board in Warrior 2, gazing at the sun setting behind the majestic Olympic mountains. Oh, look, a sea lion head popping up. To the right is a standup paddleboard class – mostly guys – yelling at the girls in standup paddleboard yoga class. Everyone laughing, enjoying being out on the water on a perfect late-summer evening. I just realized I still have sand on my leg. Ehh, don’t care.
2.I made a brand-new friend! She was in my SUP yoga class on Saturday and we chatted. Surprise! She was in class today, too. Neither of us planned to be there today. Just happened. We chatted again about fitness classes and running a 5K. I think we were meant to be friends. (P.S., it’s awkward to give a girl your phone number and email address, right? How do you get over that picking-up-a-friend weirdness?)
3.I got TWO checks in the mail today from my insurance company, reimbursing me for claims dating back to January. Yay! I got my money back. Finally! Now I can afford …
4.My upcoming trip to the East Coast! Another yay! I get to see my sister, her family and new house, a college friend and work friends. Yay! My time spent in Maryland is pretty much limited to a train ride through. This time will be legit.
5.Work has been crazy fun lately. There’s talk of drinking together, participating in celeb fantasy leagues, and today we all found our superhero names. The color of shirt you’re wearing + the object immediately to your right. I’m Purple Glasses. Our superhero team includes: Sea Green Post-It Note, Brown Polka Dot Uniball, Black Tablet, White Candace, White Whisky and Bluish Grey Hand Cream (wait, what?).
6.I made chocolate peanut butter cupcakes and froze them. They are a-maz-ing.
7.Fall TV is back. Remember how fun it is to cocoon in the evenings and watch new TV?
8.5K in 30 minutes and only getting better!
9.Seattle is freaking amazing. I love it here so much. The water, the mountains, people leisurely walking or running on the sidewalks, even the suburbanites who gawk at the Fremont Troll.
9.5 http://www.someecards.com/ is really fun
10.Have I mentioned how fabulous my friends are? I have some of the best around. New and old, they all make me happy.
I’m a journalist, content strategist, doting auntie, amateur bobsledder, fitness enthusiast, and wannabe health nut (who loves chocolate and pizza too much to fully commit). I don't want you to think my life is perfect. It's not.
